I’ve always been a fan of Mr. Bond extracts, so I was really excited to taste this rosin collaboration with Mr. Meeyagee of Bonsai Buds LLC on the shelves at Thomas Slater Compassion Center. At the time of my visit, the Bonsai Buds-grown Platinum Punch was the only strain processed by Mr. Bond on the menu.
Unboxing this live rosin made me feel like a kid on Christmas. The packaging is on point: Everything from the box to the labeled jar is neat and professional. Mr. Bond’s logo blends perfectly with Bonsai’s logo, centered in the middle. Detailed with information, they even tell you this product was produced in Pro-Mix, and grown with Advanced Nutrients with no pesticides used in the process.
Platinum Punch (Platinum Wreck x Fruit Punch) has a beautiful golden yellow color. This concentrate is more of a budder texture, easy to handle and dab. Upon opening, an enjoyable, full-bodied aroma of hash fills the nostrils.
As far as taste, I’d say Platinum Punch lands more on the deep hashy flavor end of the spectrum, more old school and full plant tasting. Black pepper spiciness shines through with light undertones of citrus. I wasn’t able to define if this was flower rosin or not, but given the scent profile, I’m assuming that it was.
Getting down to the effects, this rosin tested at over 74% THC and 1% CBD, making for a very heady and long-lasting high. Rushing feelings flow through the center of your forehead straight into your temples. Each hit packs one hell of a head buzz, with a feeling of fuzzy-eyed relaxation without overly sedative effects.
The company slogan – “Gold In, Gold Out” – rings true as these guys are producing some absolute fire solventless concentrates. It’s about time Rhode Island gets with it and patients have access to this level of quality. If you’re in need, check out Thomas Slater’s weekly rosin menu and stay updated on sales. I’d also recommend following @mrbond420 and @mr.meeyagee to find out when they’re about to drop some fresh, local flavors.
