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
