Tangerine Dreams by San Rafael’71 with THC of 72.06% at $39.95 for 0.30 gram is one of the most expensive distillate. According to True Terpenes, ” For reference a smaller volume purchase of botanical terpene profile will cost around $8-10/mL whereas a similar volume purchase for grade-A cannabis terpenes will cost closer to $150-$180/mL. A sizeable difference. ” The cost of terpene replenishment can be very expensive.
The taste has a slight herbal musk with hints of citrus and smooth. There is no candy sweet flavouring, which is an unnatural and distracting signature of low quality distillates. The “high” is uplifting, energetic, a bit of euphoria and creativity. There is a lot of mental activity coupled with time distortion and short term memory disassociation to create a distillate high. The net effect is not dissimilar to a Tangerine Dream flower experience.
Research is growing with recent Nature.com publication of a new finding here and translated by CNN. Understanding the complex interactions to produce powerful entourage effects in cannabis is an area of exciting research. Being curious and creative human beings, pharmacology allows us to try and divine the secret of creation and to design new cannabis profile by manipulating the builds blocks (cannabinoids and terpenes). Distillate is one of the products from these type of initiatives.
For us, vaping distillate produce a unique “high” profile. The distillate “high” profile is immediate, strong and steady. There is a clinical feel to the “high” in precision and intensity. There is no undulation in intensity as delivery is a smooth even flow. We advise caution to people who want to try this new form of cannabis. Keep track of how your lungs react to distillates. We are not created the same and some of us may have adverse reaction to distillates. This is new so be careful.
Tangerine Dreams distillate by San Rafael is a faithful replication of the flower experience … even the ending about two hours later gave us the Indica landing with body relaxation. Tangerine Dreams flower has a flow to the “high” experience, which is missing in distillate form. The flower experience is more electrifying and in a sense more edgy. The distillate delivers all the Tangerine Dreams’ expressions as expected with intense time distortion and short term memory disturbances, which we noted are typically associated with high THC levels. The bottom line is it is a good distillate version of Tangerine Dreams.
