Vortex – Kootenay Labs Shatter – SATIVA HYBRID 1g
This is a sativa-dominant medical marijuana strain with the indica/sativa ration of 20:80. This is a hybrid strain that was first created by TGA Genetics by crossing ‘Apollo 13 Strain’ with ‘Space Queen Strain’. This strain won the #1 rank in “2010 Cannabis Cup” and “2010 High Times Medicinal Cup”. The plant is featuring neon-green coloured buds that would lately become resin-coated and snowy-white coloured ones. They will be colored by fiery orange-colored hairs all over. Typically, the plant would grow like a vine with its weaker stems. This strain became more popular due to its taste and smell which are similar to fruit mixture. The taste of Vortex will have the traces of mango and lemon in addition to the spices and diesel fuel. The aroma will be fruity with the tropical punch. The THC content of this strain is nearly 18% with the CBD count of 0.59% and a CBN count of 0.8%. This high THC content of the strain could produce a two-hour high. Vortex is found to be a good afternoon strain which could relieve the patients from migraines. This is also found to be advantageous for the people who are fighting depression, anxiety and stress.
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.”
