Pairing: Stardawg Wax & Cider

Those flavors both complement and collide...

Smash Hits Cannabis x Crispy Commission Concentrates Collab Stardawg (Corey Cut) Wax Paired with Hilltop Orchards Cider

One thing setting Crispy Commission concentrates apart from others is their focus on maintaining the idea that good things can be made in healthy batches, as long as there’s a point where you realize going any bigger will reduce both the quality and the small-batch nature of their collaboration lines. Which is another way of saying: When you can land some killer limited-run concentrates from these guys, get some before the 500 grams of each unique line are gone. 

So it’s a good thing these guys are regularly landing some amazing flower from Smash Hits Cannabis and Greg “Chemdog” Krzanowski’s cultivation crew in the Berkshires. The batch of Stardawg (Corey Cut) collaboration wax properly represents both brands’ attention to detail and quality. This wax fully represents what a top tier solvent-extracted wax can bring – especially when what one wants is all the crispy sweetness, orange peel and dried hops, and pungent gassy cinnamon flavors of Stardawg (Corey Cut), plus the energetic mood lift and body relaxation it’s known for. 

Those flavors both complement and collide with the French Oak-aged, Berkshires-local, boozy apple cider using Hilltop Orchards heritage Golden Russet apples. The amber fermented beverage (which uses the apple skins before being slowly aged in oak) makes the tannins match a bittersweet, heavenly pairing of overripe apples, a dry finish, and a true shared-air locality to all the flavors working in unison. 

Local hooch and killer collab dabs using small-batch craft Chemdog flower pairing exceptionally well together? Who knew?
