From the OCS, ” Avana Live Rosin PAX Era Pods are filled with single input live rosin produced from soil to oil in St. Thomas, Ontario. We hand harvest and immediately freeze our sun-grown cannabis (called Whole Plant Fresh Frozen or WPFF) to preserve as much of the plants’ fresh monoterpene content as possible. Trichomes are separated in ice water using a careful agitation process, where we isolate the 90-120u sized heads; the only grade selected for our live rosin. This water hash is gently pressed into rosin through 37u bags before undergoing a proprietary solventless process and filled in industry-leading PAX Era Pods. For optimal flavour and performance set your device to 520°F. ”
A True Live Rosin
Lemonberry Haze Live Rosin by Avana packaged on August 11, 2022, cost $46.74 for 0.50 gram in a Pax Pod. Our test amount was 6 x 6 seconds draw at 285° Celsius as measured by the Pax dosing.
The “high” starts with an Interesting Organic flavoured inhalation and a Hazy Euphoric awakening. Over the first 15 minutes, Lemonberry Haze slowly increases Euphoric Blissful Clarity with a subtle Undercurrent of Electric Energy. Lemonberry Haze’s “high” unfolds just like a Flower “high” with Increasing intensity and Expressions.
Lemonberry Haze surprised Us in the great outdoors with a Sublime Euphoric Bliss. An interesting characteristic of a Live Rosin Vape’s “high” is the Steadiness of the “high” with little variation in Intensity for the first hour. After an hour, Lemon berry Hazy’s High” becomes more tranquilizing.
Activity pairing is best as a coffee replacement. Lemonberry Haze Live Rosin’s “high” is more suitable for Enjoying the Day instead of Getting Work Done.
Lemonberry Haze Live Rosin by Avana
Lemonberry Haze Live Rosin by Avana is exactly what the Pax Pods need to attract attention to this Pax’s Delivery Platform. Lemonberry Haze Live Rosin delivers an Organic concentrate “high” Unfolding just like a Flower’s “high.” Extraction method is Solvent Free … a True Live Rosin.
Total Terpenes: 7.7%
Cost: $46.74 for 0.5 gram
Would we buy this again? Yes. This is a Hybrid Sativa “high” delivering a Blend of Euphoric Blissfulness with Cerebral Stimulation. Live Rosin is more expensive than Live Resin and Distillate.
On an investment note, this Lemonberry Haze Pod by Avant’s Temperature function worked as designed registering on the Phone App. The Blue Dream Pod by Pax Canada, however, failed to recognize the Strain and required a Manual setting. All is not Well in Pax Land.
Great review! About Pax’s pod recognition/temperature function, only the “smart” pods have this feature, they can be identified by the red o-ring at the bottom of the mouthpiece(like this Avana pod) The “regular” pods(like the Pax branded Blue Dream mentioned), don’t have this feature, they can be identified by their translucent/white coloured o-ring instead. The regular pods lack the NFC chip that stores and communicates the pod data to the Pax. I hope this helps explain the differences in functionality among pods.
P.S. It would be interesting to see how the Simply Bare BC Organic Blue Dream pax pod compares to the previously reviewed Pax Labs Blue Dream pod. I’ve heard good things about the Simply Bare one(its a proper “smart” pod too).
Thank you for the NFC update.
Not to be alarming and not a Deal Breaker, the Pax pod by Avant had a draw problem where we could not draw. After a few times trying, however, it did “Pop” and air flow began. It is not happening right now but the Pod looks worrisome with a black residue and changing taste. For full disclosure, we are going to update the review when the Pod is completely finished. We were surprised with the blockage given the Pods should be able to handle the thicker Live Rosin.
To be fair, we are also currently reviewing the Dunn Apple N Bananas Live Rosin 1G 510 cart and seeing some Reddit post on product failure half way through the Cart. That has got us all worried. There are suggestions to go with 0.50 gram carts instead of the 1 Gram carts, which are apparently prone to plugging. While we have never had plugging problems with Carts, we have also never had Live Rosin in Carts.
Yes, the Simply Bare Organic Pods are next on the review list. We are looking forward to it.
