Solar Cannabis Co. continues to pull out all of the stops when it comes to assuring that their customers receive a supremely quality product. Leveling up once again, they recently acquired a brand new stainless-steel extraction unit from Ice Extract Equipment that can run up to 800 pounds of material washed with ice and water at one time.
Needless to say, the team over at Solar have had their hands full this past month – pressing their own single-source live rosins that just hit the recreational market in Massachusetts.
For any local dispensary, creating quality concentrates should be a priority – but the efforts and end product are up to the company. Solar is exceptional in the fact that they’re able to pheno hunt and select multiple phenotypes of rare genetics that are expertly cultivated and chosen particularly for resin farming. I had the opportunity to get my hands on a half gram of their newly released Gas Truffle hash rosin – a cross of Malibu Mirage and Grape Gasoline conceived by Compound Genetics – which tested at over 82% total active cannabinoids and 56.7% THCa.
Solar’s concentrate is packaged in exquisite fashion – with an eye-catching box and jar containing the indica-dominant Gas Truffle and its grape, yet distinctly gassy and almost creamy terpene profile. The color of this rosin is a little bit amber, but this could be due to a slight aging of their first run of material. Gas Truffle’s fragrance smashes the nose with notes of an earthy, slightly skunky and diesel fuel. Bringing a great flavor on the inhale, the hashy sweetness lingers on the palate.
With high potency, the effect of this concentrate is very relaxing and gleeful. After a long week on the grind, this was an enjoyable flavor to crack into on a Sunday morning. It’s obvious from this first batch that Solar’s extraction team is on the right track and after touring the facility in-person myself, I can confidently tell you that they’re going to be producing some of the finest solventless extractions in Massachusetts … and soon, Rhode Island.
