From the orange glow reflected off of the pristine, calm waters to the quiet that envelopes you, sunsets in Sitka are legendary. So, it’s no wonder that Fairbanks’ premiere concentrate manufacturer, Good Titrations, used Sitka as an inspiration for naming their house-favorite sugar – Sitka Sunset x Cali Orange Bud.
The moment you pop the orange top of this fragrant sugar, you will be hit with earthy, piney notes mixed with subtly sour citrus. As you pack your favorite dab rig, be sure to take a deep inhale of the leftover sugar on your fingers. If you close your eyes, you’ll be transported to the temperate Alaskan rainforest as the scent of Sitka Spruce and damp earth overtake your olfactory system. For an added auditory experience, press play on Lord Huron’s “The Night We Met” – trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
An indica-leaning hybrid, Sitka Sunset x Cali Orange Bud provides a slow, creeping high that may take several minutes to fully enjoy. Our modest first toke left us with a buzzing head that began as a light tingle near the base of our skulls. As the high transformed into an energizing body high, we felt a deep state of focus overtake us. It was at that point that we opted to take a deeper draw and were rewarded with a sedative vibe that sent us peacefully off to sleep.
Aroma aside, one of our favorite things about this delicious sugar is its versatility. For those looking for an energy kick with a side of intense focus, consuming Sitka Sunset x Cali Orange Bud in moderation is the ticket. But, if you want to knock out on a Sunday night, a heavy dose will bring out the sedating effects of the Cali Orange cross. Either way, this might just become your new favorite workhorse concentrate.
