This month, we’re firing up our torches and trying some of Mana Extract’s “Lucid” line. The Portland company produces a variety of products, from diamonds and sugar wax to shatter and cartridges. Their “Lucid” branch of the brand, however, is produced with a “proprietary filtration system” that sets it apart from their other offerings. Let’s sit down with some Super Silver Haze (originally bred by Nevil Schoenmakers), a Mana staff favorite from the organic, greenhouse-grown Foley Farms.
The Mana team has prepared this live resin offering as a sticky, applesauce consistency. A bright-gold blend of tiny, dazzling diamonds and thick sauce makes this dabbable product a breeze to work with. The nose features pungent magnolia, orange and fermented fruit notes. But there’s a piney-haze profile that’s also peeking through.
Floral flavors finesse the lead during the dabbing experience, while some sour citrus notes manage to maintain their presence. Overall, it’s a smooth translation of nose-to-flavor with each inhale yielding a slightly different layer, from musky flowers to tangy fruits. The combination is reminiscent of a sweet champagne.
A spicy spank to the senses follows the exhale that’s equal parts taste and potency-driven. It evolves into a heavy-headed high with a focus on the eyeballs and back of the brain – a stimulating, energetic buzz that doesn’t bring you down. The effects are a lasting legacy of the classic cultivars (Skunk #1, Northern Lights and Haze) that define one of the world’s most recognizable strains.
