Pie Dough Rosin

from Mega Raw Melts

"Moments later my eyes widened, I felt focused and dare I say, happy."

As a daily consumer of flower, mostly at night, I am a relative newcomer to the world of dabs. This product, Pie Dough rosin from Mega Raw Melts – a boutique Maine producer/processor specializing in the fine art of hash rosin – may have converted me. 

Pie Dough is a very unique and rare strain bred by Cannarado Genetics and pheno-hunted by Mega Raw Melts. The packaging is simple, with a historic logo featuring the ‘ice cream cone boy’ from the cover of the Europe ‘72 album by the Grateful Dead from the Kelley Mouse Studios. The Pie Dough rosin features a light milky quartz color to it with an intense aroma that can be smelled as soon as the seal of the cap is broken. Mega Raw describes it as a very unique combination of gunpowder and incense. The smoke was easy and filling, with no resistance from the lungs – it just seeped into me. Moments later my eyes widened, I felt focused and dare I say, happy. I could play a game of basketball or read an instruction manual afterwards. It was a nice taste going in, and no aftertaste lingered.

These qualities are no doubt the reward of knowledge and skill in the intricate process of growing quality flower and years of experience making bubble hash. Mega Raw Melts attributes their high quality and ability to retain flavor and potency through a process of extraction that is “whole plant ice water extract pressed into rosin.” It’s certainly a science of which I have no concept or knowledge, but I’m sure Walter White would be proud.

Overall, the product was well-crafted and incredibly smooth, tasty and enjoyable. Just like a good piece of pie.
