Double Infused Pre-Roll = Shatter Inside + Kief Outside, 2 times the extracts!
Farnesene - Terpene associated with green apples, grape, grapefruit and rose
Fenchyl – Terpene associated with camphor (evergreen) trees, pine, wild celery
Fresh Frozen – cannabis that is frozen immediately after harvest to preserve cannabinoids and terpenes/ flavour, aka flash frozen
Full spectrum – whole flower inclusion as the cannabis input – highly beneficial
Glassine – biodegradable, recyclable, air resistant, water-resistant and a perfect wrap for shatter
Humulene – Terpene associated with wood, earth, coriander, cilantro, hops
Kief – Cannabis pollen, crystally trichomes that fall off the plant, used to infuse cannabis joints
Kush – associated with mountains, cannabis landrace strains and indica

Lot Numbers – as a new lot comes into circulation, we will share a lot of info on our website - there is lots to love! Please see the packaging (see FAQ to learn a lot more)
Nerolidol – Terpene associated with citronella, ginger, orange peel and orange blossom, jasmine
Nucleation – temperature changes cause instability in extracts’ terpenes, agitating the cannabinoids and naturally resulting in a sugar/wax like texture. It’s perfect to enjoy, also referred to a sugaring!
OG – stands for an “ocean grown” cannabis strain, originally a cannabis plant grown oceanside
#PerfectClouds – that is defined by you!
Product Evolving – terpenes become volatile naturally through temperature changes and cannabinoids become agitated. This results in a sugary/waxy texture while product is nucleating due to high terp content. Higher level of terpenes and higher variance in temperatures lead to higher levels of sugaring, potency remains and flavour is perfect and pronounced.
Pull and Snap – description of Shatter that is malleable, bendable, and stickier with warmth, Shatter you can pull and snap
Snake – description of Shatter that is “pull and snap” see above, or malleable and rolled into a wormy snake-like shape by hand … enjoyable when rolled within a cannabis joint
Shatter – extracted cannabis concentrates that are solvent-based
Storage – cool, dry place is optimal for all extracts or at an ambient 19 C. In warmth Shatter melts, in cold it hardens, when temps vary they destabilize and naturally sugar/nucleate (accelerated high terpene batches exposed to the elements)
Sugaring – high terpene extracts when exposed to air or temperature variations will continue evolving and nucleate. Natural process of texture change from glass-like to waxy and product taste/ flavour becomes pronounced
Terpenes – natural occurring flavours and aromas in cannabis
Terpineol – Terpene associated with lilacs, eucalyptus and parsnip
Terpinolene – Terpene associated with fresh wood, pine and cedar
Trans-Caryophyllene – Terpene associated with pepper, wood, cloves, basil, rosemary
Valencene – Terpene associated with Valencia Oranges and grapefruits, citrusy, refreshing
Wax – oven-baked and whipped concentrated cannabis extract
Winterization – removes fats and lipids at frigid cold temps to produce quality and flavour and creates high purity extracts
Wrap – glassine envelope wrap your shatter comes in – air, water and oil resistant
