2021 Northeast Concentrates: Distillate

"Distillate offers a Cannabis experience high on THC and terpenes, usually without CBD and other Cannabinoids."

Distillate is distilled Cannabis, usually in oil form, that has been stripped of waxes, lipids, chlorophyll and other compounds in order to concentrate a single cannabinoid, usually THC or CBD. Distillate can be made from various types of concentrates, but is most often refined with ethanol.

With a name taken from the German fern-weh and meant to be a flavor-forward product, their secret-sauce formulations of natural terpenes (5%!) in the Stonefruit brought flavors of fresh chilled peaches dunked in lemon-lime sparkling water, and then consumed sitting in a wildflower patch. Smooth and zero burn or harshness, and a soft shimmering vibe to the overall experience. Bonus points for the battery and its heat modulation for controlling terpene preservation, the surgical grade steel and borosilicate glass on the cart.
