Sour Haze – Kootenay Labs Shatter – SATIVA 1g
Sour Haze is a 100% pure sativa strain with relatively unknown genetics due to breeder secrecy. It is widely agreed among the cannabis community that this bud is likely a cross between Sour Diesel X an unknown Haze strain. Sour Haze boasts a moderately high THC level ranging from 19-26% on average and a combination of potent sativa effects. Sour Haze has a taste of sweet lime with a sour diesel aftertaste upon exhale and an aroma akin to drinking a Sprite soda at a gas station. The Sour Haze buds have fluffy neon green popcorn-shaped nugs with bright orange furry hairs and undertones. These nugs have light minty green patches and a fine layer of thick crystal trichomes and resin. Users describe the Sour Haze high as an instantly uplifting and energetic head high that leaves you active and motivated with a moderate case of the giggles. If too much is smoked at once, Sour Haze has the tendency to leave you paranoid, dizzy, and very anxious. Due to these potent effects, Sour Haze is an ideal strain for treating seasoned patients suffering from conditions such as mild to moderate cases of depression, chronic stress, and sleep disorders, including insomnia.
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.”
