DREAM TEAM EXTRACTS – OG SHATTER

150416F OGShat

This $60 gram went a long way. Despite some tarnishing in the temper, resulting in a tad softer consistency than you’d be looking for in a shatter, the flavor is well rounded. Lemon-y, even tropical. Hints of coconut. A bit harsh. Well smoked out of quartz for smoothest intake.

Overall, we’d say the flavor far outweighs the downside in consistency. Good deal for the punch packed. We picked up three grams for $160. That’s friend prices. (Actually everyone gets that deal.)

FULL FLAVOR EXTRACTS – CHEMDAWG 44

150416F CHEMDAWG

The heavy grain of this Chemdawg gives it an earthier aroma than you’d expect from pretty much any extract. But don’t let that fool you. Another heavy hitter. Flavor comes off much danker than the scent.

The color is a thing of beauty. A deep red, by dabs standards. With the grain it gains some kind of red sand quality. Easily pressed, the color is maintained. And that dank underbelly peaks its nose out a bit after pressing. More harsh than any of the others reviewed. We leave this down to the earthen leanings of the particular batch, as other Chemdawgs we’ve come across seem to have an almost diesel strength and pinch. Speaking of which…

MATT RIZE – SOUR DIESEL ICE WAX – 37 filter, 70 filter

150416F IceWax

First, the 37. For as strong and supremely dank as this strain is, it’s one of the smoothest smokes you’ll ever have. This goes for both filters. The scent is pungent. Even in the packaging. But it’s a looser consistency than its 70 filter sibling. Larger grain. So in all the hits are strong but not the strongest.

For that you go to the 70. This wax literally looks like space rocks from Bill Watterson comics. And smells just as good. It’s like a waltz of skunky, dank romance. The kind of smells, tastes and hits that true “weed heads” tend to hunt for. In truth, not for the faint of lung. It packs a prizefighters punch. Not harsh by any means, but so strong. Recommended for the seasoned Dabbelier.
