Turn the last days of summer into an endless happy hour with the terpy Sativa Limonada that brings all the flavor of a margarita on the rocks without the hangover.
Avitas has been extracting delicious Co2 for nearly a decade in the Pacific Northwest, and amazingly they continue to deliver tastier concentrates and carts every year. We decided to savor their Limonada single origin live resin cartridge for this issue, and had the pleasure of enjoying their delicious flower as well. This high terpene extract fits perfectly into the Tannins & Terpenes issue, delivering 8.7% terps that bring flavor and effects that are perfect for celebrating the end of summer.
First tokes off the golden oil filled cartridge deliver a syrupy lemon-lime zing with an earthy-agave-kush finish that’s complex and scrumptious, setting the mouth to watering with each puff. This tastes like a smokable version of a classic margarita on the rocks– not too sweet, not too sour, and with a perfect kiss of funky fruity spice on the exhale. This cross of Lemon Meringue X Dragon OG brings a stoney Sativa buzz that builds in the frontal lobes before rushing into the body with an easy moving energetic high. Uplifting and euphoric, this is a get-up-and-go strain that has just enough sedation to make it perfect for work or play.
Since this concentrate is a single origin product, meaning Avitas also cultivates the flower, we had the pleasure of sampling the nugs that made the cartridge so yummy. Pulling the mylar open releases a wave of warming pink lemons and a fizzy sweet OG that intoxicates the senses. Smelling like a weed version of a cocktail, it’s hard not to lick your fingers after breaking up a bowl of this frosty, lightly sticky flower. First tokes deliver a bright and syrupy lemon-lime that coats the palate after a super-clean exhale, puckering lips as the lungs prepare for more big tokes.
Heavier hitting on the sedation in flower form than the cartridge, we found it a little harder to focus on tasks after several fat bong tokes, but it didn’t diminish the zeal we had for what would normally be mundane to-do’s. Combining the cart and the flower we found the perfect buzz, starting with the bud and then using the cartridge to maintain a stoney, smiley energy throughout the day, delivering a terpy happy hour where any time is Limonada time.
