Rockstar – Kootenay Labs Shatter – INDICA HYBRID 1g
Rockstar, not to be confused with its cousin “Rockstar OG” strains, is a indica dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa) strain created through a cross of the popular Rock Bud X Sensi Star strains. The Rockstar high is characterized by strong-hitting effects powered by a 14-19% average THC level without the sedation that typically comes with an indica parent. The Rockstar high starts with a cerebral head rush a few minutes after toking that leaves you uplifted and extremely happy with active tendencies and motivation. As this powerful head high builds, you’ll slowly feel a creeping body buzz wash over you that leaves you completely relaxed in every single muscle, leaving you helplessly couch-locked and in a state of pure bliss. Despite these powerful muscle-relaxing effects, Rockstar surprisingly won’t leave you sedated in the least bit. Because of these powerful effects, Rockstar is said to be perfect for treating chronic pain, muscle spasms or tremors, inflammation, and mild to moderate cases of depression. This bud has an aroma of spicy grapey earth with a hint of skunky pungent herbs and a taste of spiced mulled wine with a pungent slightly skunky exhale. Rockstar buds have medium-sized dense and lumpy dark olive green spade-shaped nugs with rich purple undertones, fiery orange hairs, and frosty trichome covered purple leaves.
Shatter, with its flawless amber glass transparency, has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality. The consistency and texture of oil come down to different factors entirely.
The reason shatter comes out perfectly clear has to do with the molecules. Which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance. Heat, moisture, and high terpene contents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap”). Cannabis Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap.”
