Sugar Shack - Addition to the Hash Rosin Database
Hello friends and fellow tokers! Today I will be passing on information I learned while processing a strain for Hash Rosin.
This is an interesting case and I'm happy to share my experience.
This is a strain I phenohunted from a half pack of seeds from Shwale Sugar Shack is a cross of Baker's Dozen (I believe it is the same strain used) and Sugar Coat. Overall this cut was selected because it made a higher percentage of Hash compared to the other female I got from the pack. The genetics are legit and talking to other people online that have grown it have been happy with their outcomes. The hash I made from this plant grown indoors was amazing but the rosin it made from my outdoor is.... interesting.
I cannot say for sure why, but it seems that the terpenes preserved when growing indoors were not present in the outdoor grow. Rosin I make generally has a "shatter" consistency after being freshly pressed but it soon "butters" up and crystalizes in a way that can be more easily handled. After a few weeks, my Sugar Shack rosin still has barely buttered up at all. This is literally the first time that has happened to me and I wonder if it is due to the lack of terpenes present. The smell of the finished rosin is pretty generic.
In the spirit of limited space and time, I think it is time to cull my 2 Sugar Shack cuts to make room for a Sugar Shack x GMO cross I have growing.
Was great but nothing smelled that much, usually I like to get a bag of material and the smell is seeping out of the bags, when I wash it the room reeks of it, when I press it the smell can't be ignored. None of this happened for this strain though the plants were well grown and well prepped for processing.
I am really bummed I did not find a keeper from my half pack of seeds (I would have had a full pack but I burned the other half pack while germinating - don't leave them on the light on accident). But, it is a feeling of progress even when determining what you don't want in your stable as much as finding a keeper. I still have a lot of excitement for my pack of seeds I am currently hunting. Though it is Sugar Shack, it is selected for a cut that produces hash AND it is crossed with GMO, a known DUMPER.
