Platinum Garlic - Addition to the Hash Database
Hello weed connoisseurs, aficionados, and snobs!
Today I will be sharing with you the results of my batch of Rosin: Platinum Garlic. Platinum Garlic is a cross between GMO and Platinum.
All of the material I have got from this grower has been great. It is prepped properly and quickly put into a freezer to attempt to preserve all of the terpenes and trichome heads we can. If left at room temperature after cutting, you risk the membranes bursting and resin leaking out, and that is unrecoverable in the method (bubble hash) we use. If we were "blasting" (making BHO) these are things that can be recovered, there is a little more leeway in that method, but our way is solventless.
I personally love GMO and it's crosses, its one of my favorite flavor profiles up there with Mendobreath and Triangle Kush. The more I get to try different strains, the more I realize I love the "gassy" terps. What's cool is my gf prefers the fruitier strains, so if we can find a strain we both enjoy I think that could be something special for more consumers.
The reason I bring that up is you can almost tell how "tasty" the strain is going to be as rosin when you wash it. If the room fills up with the smell, that's usually a good sign (although you are smelling the off-gassed terpenes, usually there are still quite a bit left after the process).
This strain made my room reek, in a good way.
I typically run two presses, the first being 180 degrees the second being 210
One thing I realized that needed to be included in this database is source of the strains. For instance, anyone can pop a pack of seeds of a named strain and pass along a cut under that name. That doesn't mean it is the "popular" cut or even a cut used for hash. In the previous post, "Super Boof" was washed, a specific cut of a strain. Different phenos will show different expressions that may make them seem like completely different strains. In a single pack of seeds you can find completely different flavor expressions and large ranges of hash returns. Just because it's parents are hashers doesn't mean that was passed down. Moving forward, I will do my best to detail this information the best I can. Fact is, the more hands there are in the process the harder it can be to track that down.
This will be most accurate when they are cuts that I personally pass along. Currently, we have 2 different cuts of "Rotten Fruit Cocktail" we are testing, these will be included in the details of the reports.
