There’s something special about the OG Kush terpene profile. The strain has been one of my all-time favorites for as long as I can recall and as a true OG fanatic, I knew I needed to give Mammoth Inc.’s Greenfire OG a taste test when it graced the Rhode Island extraction company’s live rosin menu.
In addition to my desire to hunt out high-quality Kush, I also make it a priority to seek out releases from Greenfire Genetics. The legendary Alaina from Greenfire has long been considered one of the best breeders in the industry and her projects never disappoint. The Greenfire OG seemed particularly special as the company’s namesake strain, a cross between Green Crack and Fire OG.
When it comes to extracts in Rhode Island, Mammoth is the name to know. The company has quickly become the state’s finest producer of quality solventless concentrates and the genetics Mammoth grows are as premium as it gets. Just seeing Mammoth’s packaging excites me because I know it is going to contain a very heady gram of hash.
The Greenfire OG concentrate is single-source, live rosin batter made in-house by Mammoth Inc. They carefully cultivated the strain prior to extraction, growing the Greenfire flowers hydroponically with absolutely no insecticides or pesticides. Considered their premium spectrum, the Greenfire OG rosin was pressed from 90u-120u first-pull bubble hash and tested at 68% THCA.
The first thing I noticed about this live rosin was the impressive color – a beautiful light gold. At the same time, it must be noted: The Greenfire OG absolutely kicks you in the nose with robust aromas of lime candy and fresh-squeezed lemonade once you crack the jar. This rosin really delivers on everything you could hope to get from a true OG Kush variety.
As for dabbing temperature, Mammoth suggests 540 degrees as the ultimate temp for a hearty but terp-filled dab. With my recently acquired, temperature controlled Dabrite, I was ready to go.
My first dab of the Greenfire OG felt like a detonation of terps in my mouth, with long-lasting flavors of gas and citrus candy. It was a bit like having a lime rickey on a hot summer day. For me, this is what dabbing is all about – an emphasis on flavor and, of course, the high.
I enjoy OG strains in large part due to their sedative and creative effects – and while this rosin put me in a conversational mood and calmed my anxiety in a public setting – the experience was not a mild one. In fact, if you’re lucky enough to sample the Greenfire OG rosin, you had better buckle up and prepare to take flight – this concentrate takes you on quite the journey. (Pro Tip: Keep some water close by when you’re ready to dab – cottonmouth is inevitable and you will want to go in for a second round on the rig right away.)
You can find Mammoth Inc. live rosin at many of Rhode Island’s eight statewide dispensaries. I’d also recommend signing up for Mammoth’s VIP drops, so you can get first dibs on all of the irresistible varieties they have to offer.
