Characteristics: coca-cola colored, semi-opaque and visually pure.
TIP: I’ve found the best way to work with thick shatter like this is to break off a very small piece, gently warm it up between your fingers, flatten it out to a thin film and then apply it to the dabber tool.
Terpene Profile: Alpha-Bisabolol 0.3911%; Borneol 0.0384%; Camphene 0.0843%; Beta-Caryophyllene 1.5221%; Fenchone 0.0158%; Fenchyl Alcohol 0.2916%; Alpha-Humulene 0.5089%; Limonene 0.7191%; Linalool 0.3154%; Beta-Myrcene 0.4124%; Nerolidol 0.0570%; Ocimene 0.0243%; Alpha-Pinene 0.2394%; Beta-Pinene 0.3024%; Terpineol 0.3670%; Terpenolene 0.1324% (LK Pure Labs)
In its intact state, this shatter emitted only a very light sweet pungent aroma. When dabbed, this shatter tasted of pungent fuel (heavy on the pungency and light on the fuel) followed by mild cocoa notes. It’s worth noting that the terpene profile for this batch of shatter has an unusually wide-range of terpenes in the final product.

Effects: Most say that despite the Sativa lineage, Gorilla Glue ‘glues’ you to the couch. This sample definitely had a predominantly Indica expression, though there was a noticeable sativa effect riding shot gun.
Duration of Effects: 2+ hours, depending on dosage
A very good example of GG butane-derived shatter. No "points" off for packaging, but silicone or parchment should be considered instead of glass since the shatter cements itself to the glass.

And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
