Sour Amnesia – Crash Labs Shatter – SATIVA 1g
Sour Amnesia is a sativa dominant hybrid (85% sativa/15% indica) strain created as a cross of the insanely popular Sour Diesel X Amnesia strains. This bud took home the 2nd place prize for Best Sativa at the 2012 High Times’ Cannabis Cup and boasts a THC level that typically falls between 15-20% on average. Sour Amnesia has an aroma very much like its name suggests – sharp sour earth with a hint of citrusy diesel that’s released when it’s smoked. The taste is of earthy floral diesel with a sharply sour aftertaste that intensifies upon exhale. The Sour Amnesia high is said to be very serene in nature with just a touch of short-term memory loss. It starts with a soaring uplifting cerebral effect that leaves you completely blissful with a sense of utter calm. This is accompanied by a relaxing body effect that doesn’t limit your functionality, making it ideal for use during the day. Because of these powerful effects, Sour Amnesia is said to be perfect for treating chronic fatigue, mild to moderate cases of depression, ADD or ADHD, and chronic stress or anxiety. Sour Amnesia buds have large dense and tight spade-shaped lime green nugs with lots of colorful leaves, bright pink and purple undertones, and a frosty layer of crystal sandy white trichomes.
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.”
