TCS Live Rosin

from Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center

"A very potent concentrate with a substantial amount of terps that fans of gas and citrus flavors will love."

Rhode Island’s first and longest-serving medical dispensary, The Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center in Providence, carries an immaculate live rosin that is grown and processed in-house. Their TCS live rosin is a combination of Tang Breath and Wedding Cake, made from ice water extracted hash that is pressed by machine. Testing at almost 75% THC and 0.7% CBD, this is a very potent concentrate with a substantial amount of terps that fans of gas and citrus flavors will love. 

TCS live rosin packaging was on point – sleek and simple, although a bit confusing – as we weren’t sure if this was a blend of two separate strains to enhance flavor and strength, or a cross of two strains grown out and extracted. The hash came sealed in a large plastic bag with the branding of the Compassion Center’s logo, which was very hard to get into and is certainly childproof. Inside that was yet another sealed plastic bag, warning labels and test results printed on the back. 

Popping this jar open, your nose is hit with aromatic scents of orangey, sweet-citrus fruit akin to orange peels. With the sugariness of our fave childhood drink, SunnyD, tempered by the acidity of grapefruit, this rosin delivers a true tangerine-tang flavor. Ever since first trying Agent Orange and Tangerine Dream, we’ve always loved a distinctive citrus tree fruit terpene. 

The combo of Tang Breath and Wedding Cake brings some serious hybrid effects. Exhaling will leave you lit up in your eyes – fuzzy, slightly blurred, with a buzz creeping up with a headband sensation around your forehead. This strain improves focus and precision, while also easing morning anxiety and increasing appetite. 

Combining relief for many symptoms, this is most certainly a solventless concentrate you will enjoy keeping in your weekly headstash rotation. And if you’re a valid medical patient from any state, you can visit Rhode Island dispensaries such as The Thomas Slater Compassion Center and try it for yourself!
