Beach Time = getting suspended
FIDO = f**k it, drive on
Junk Box = a heroin addict
A New Boot = a rookie cop
Paper Hanger = a criminal who specializes in passing bad checks
Rubber Gun Squad = desk duty without a gun, usually pending an investigation.
VOX = violent person who is intoxicated on alcohol
Yard Sale = when personal items are strewn about a vehicle accident scene
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Live Resin wax
What is “Live Resin”?
‘Live Resin’ is a specific type of cannabis extract whereby fresh cannabis flowers (i.e., buds not yet dried and cured) are harvested at their apex of maturity, cryogenically flash frozen under very cold temperatures and then used as the extraction material in the manufacturing process of that extract. The process of manufacturing Live Resin is an effort to retain as much of the fresh terpenes and cannabinoids from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete and intense terpene and cannabinoid experience.
Type: Indica-dominant Hybrid (70%/30%)
Genotype: OG 18 = An OG Kush backcross
Original breeder is Reserva Privada. OG 18 is also known as “Reserva Privada”.
OG Kush’s original genetics are highly debated.

In its intact state, this sample smelled of sour pine and fuel. When dabbed, this live resin’s flavors were a little surprising. I expected lots of sour and pine, but instead the flavor profile was a very subdued fuel combined with a light sweetness. Unexpected, in a good way. It’s worth noting that some of the terpene levels are significantly higher than what I normally see in non-live resins, particularly the Beta-Caryophyllene, Limonene and Beta-Myrcene.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful experience with live resins. Dabbing this live resin at high temps degrades the flavor significantly. To learn how you can use this terpenes data to better your health, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: For this reviewer, the effects were a potent combination of mind and body. A nice dose of energy that’s tempered by a strong body influence. It’s a functional relaxing high at low and moderate doses, and a full body melt at high doses. I actually use it as both a functional daytime medicine and an evening remedy. The staying power is not a marathon and there's no hard crash.
Duration of Effects: 2+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood and minor cervical pain. May also help with mood, stress, anxiety, PTSD, body pain, appetite, some forms of nerve pain (and more).
A pure live resin with a robust set of terpenes that offers a smooth, pleasant vapor.

Devil’s Vine = "Hey, Man" and "Dude" because any time I make contact with a civilian who addresses me like that, they are always in possession of it.
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again...’cause I’ll be there.
