We sure do love an ode to Seatown, so we were excited to finally get our hands on these PNW-themed jars of hash rosin by North Sound Solventless – a small-batch processor cranking out “water-made, high-grade” craft concentrates.
Owner and operator Spencer does all the washing and pressing in house, and says his background in commercial fishing and love for the outdoors inspired the recent rebrand. Beyond an updated jar style and fresh full-wrap label design, North Sound has also rolled out its new tier system that offers something terpy for every taste and budget.
Tier 1 is reserved for more limited, ultra-premium “special terps” while Tier 2 is still premium, just with strains you’ll see more regularly on the menu. Tier 3 is an affordable line designed to be a great entry step into the wonderful world of solventless smoking.
This Peanut Butter Breath was part of the first Tier 1 batch to drop, consisting of “unique cultivars and extremely limited runs that really stand out above the rest.” Grown by Green Lion Gardens, an indoor organic living soil farm up in Bellingham, we can confirm that she sure is a standout!
PBB is a beloved yet hard-to-come-by cross of Do-Si-Dos x Mendo Breath, originally bred by ThugPug Genetics out of Michigan. It has a piney, woodsy aroma with some skunk in there – like how we’d imagine it’d smell if you left your loud stash in your hiking bag over the weekend. The taste comes through even earthier with a flavor like sweet soil, thanks to undertones of chocolate nuttiness and coffee grounds on the exhale.
With an ultra-mellow and cerebral high, this strain has quickly become a fixture in our afternoon rotation around Leaf HQ. You can find the latest terps from North Sound Solventless around Washington in Euphorium, Forbidden Cannabis Club, Evergreen Market, HypeHerbally, Fweedom Cannabis and more.
