Tangie Live Sugar
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Live Sugar, which is a live resin in sugar form
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 terpene profile experience.

Physical Characteristics: This sample was a mid-toned amber-caramel color. It was soft and scoopable. There was some granule-like consistency once you dig into it.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this product, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this extract.
In its intact state, this Tangie live sugar emitted assertive aromas of exactly sweet, fresh tangerines. When dabbed, I tasted a sweet citrus tangerine/orange up front, followed by diesel notes on the exhale. There was also a tad of skunky-cheesiness in there, which is an element you don’t always get with a Tangie. The flavors were accurate and intense.
TIPS: Low temp dabbing is mandatory to achieve optimum flavor with this live resin. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: An uplifting high that offers an abundance of the pleasant type of energy instead of a jolt of adrenaline. Not as clear headed as say a Blue Dream; more euphoric and heady, especially at moderate and higher doses. I’m a huge fan of the Tangie experience in all its forms and hybridizations, such as the Tangerine Haze or the Tangie Ghost Train, to name a few.
Duration of Effects: 2.5+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with fatigue and mood. May also help with depression, stress, migraines, appetite, nausea, minor pain (and more)
If you love Sativas, you cannot go wrong with the Tangie strain or this excellent live sugar.
