Easy Brands has marked themselves as the next big extractor to emerge onto the Oregon market. With a background in recreational Cannabis, it was easy to stake a claim and comfortably feel out their niche within the processing side of the industry.
Hash rosin has taken the state like a tsunami, flooding into areas of Oregon that haven’t seen hash since the medical days. While picking between the top concentrates in the state can be an arduous task, this month all signs pointed to Easy’s run of Laird Family Farms Rainbow Belts 3.0. It’s a cross of Rainbow Belts #20 and Moonbow #112 f2 #60 – a phenotype hunted and made popular by Portland’s own Archive Seed Bank.
Hash now comes in many forms, from the old-school pressed coins to the highest grades of fresh-pressed and full-melt. There is something in each of them that tickles the soft spot of nostalgia, or engages a new age intrigue. But cold-cure rosin seems to reach a wider audience … with its simpler handling and terpenes still wafting from the jar.
Upon first look and smell, this is not your average Rainbow Belts. It has been selected for yield, taste and effect, and Archive chose a much different, gassier terpene profile than many would expect from this strain. The sweet candy smell is non-existent. Instead, a heavy, cheesy and gassy front end punch evolves into a strong Zkittlez backend.
The effects are beyond any other Rainbow Belts we have tried to date. It makes our eyes low, but brings energetic feelings and surprising excitement for whatever minor or major task we have to accomplish. Quite frankly, it pairs well with life.
