50% Sativa / 50% Indica
Apple Jack is a sativa-dominant hybrid created by crossing the famed Jack Herer sativa with White Widow, an equally notorious hybrid. The result is fairly potent, with THC levels that can top 20%. The exact balance of sativa to indica is unknown, but sativa makes up at least 70% of its genes. Even so, Apple Jack delivers a mix of head and body effects, with a calming physical buzz and a euphoric cerebral sensation. The high is focused and creative, great for relieving stress. This strain is good for treating muscle spasms, chronic pain, and anxiety, as well as depression and other mood disorders. CBD levels are low, only about 0.1%, so this isn’t a good choice for epileptics or other patients whose symptoms respond to CBD. Apple Jack has a sweet fruity flavor to go with its name, as well as a sweet but pungent earthy aroma. This strain isn’t widely available, so there’s no real data on its negative effects. For that matter, it’s hard to say where this unique strain can be found, though it’s probably sold on Western legal markets.
What is Live Resin?
Live Resin is a process/method of creating a cannabis concentrate and also the name for the end product. The live resin manufacturing process is similar to those of other concentrates, i.e. purging the plant with solvents (usually butane) and creating a concentrated substance of various texture, density and so on. But, it is a bit more complicated and for a good reason.
How is Live Resin made? How is Live Resin different from other concentrates?
Live Resin is very similar to wax, shatter, and other extracts. The main difference is using fresh flower – no stems or fan leaves – with no curing or drying involved. The plant is preserved through freezing, e.g. flash freezing with the help of liquid nitrogen, thus saving the terpenes or the so-called essential oils of the cannabis trichomes, and preserving the flavors. Live Resin is very popular among cannabis connoisseurs, as it is a concentrate that comes with the full flavor and high terpene profile of the flower, although critics say that by not using the whole plant in extraction, the profile is not as rich and lacks minor but equally important terpenes.
Live resin also differs in texture. It is more liquid than the average extract and comes in a variety of consistencies like badder, sugar, sap, sauce and so on. The more terpenes there are, the more fluid the product is.
