Over the past five to ten years, we have seen an incredible amount of progress with regards to all types of concentrates – whether solventless or solvent-based. Just like Tesla’s new Cybertruck, Portland Extracts has crafted a remarkably innovative product: solventless live THC-A and sauce.
One might ask, “What is solventless sauce?” The term ‘sauce’ was coined a few years back, when hydrocarbon extractors were finding themselves with a product that looked similar to apple sauce. Fast forward to 2020, we now have a wide variety of both hydrocarbon and solventless ‘sauce’ options.
That said, Portland Extracts has truly taken it to the next level with their new line of Berries N’ Cream solventless live THC-A and sauce. After cold-curing fresh-pressed rosin, they then take the hash and whip it to achieve a buddery consistency. Next, the buddered hash is placed into a metal screen to be rosin-pressed once again, for the closing stage of refinement. The result of this is pure THC-A leftover inside the screen, with terpenes oozing out. Finally, the end product is cured in a room held at an extremely low temperature. This ensures that the terpenes stay intact and the budder forms into true THC-A.
Combining Laird Family Farm’s Blueberry Muffin #4 (Blueberry x Purple Panty Dropper) and the ever-so-loved Cookies and Cream, Berries N’ Cream was born.
Upon cracking open a petite glass jar, my nose was permeated by a lusciously sweet and creamy smell, reminiscent of a freshly baked batch of blueberry muffins! My eyes were then met with paperwhite THC-A triangles, accompanied by terpenes that appeared almost holographic.
After cleaning my rig, I heated the nail and steadily watched my Temp Tech fall in temperature. Trying this new style of concentrate had me feeling a lot like a kid on Christmas morning, uncertain of what was to come. As my nail cooled down to 550 degrees, I went in on what would be a game-changing experience.
On the exhale, my lips were smacked with a rich and pungent Afganhi and Flo essence, indicative of the Blueberry lineage. This hash is the definition of a creeper high, starting with a mellow and calm cerebral effect, ending with an allover and intense body high.
Ordinarily, with most solventless extracts, I will find myself extremely affected right away, with an effect that lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. However, with Portland Extracts’ solventless live THC-A and sauce, about ten minutes after taking my first dab, I gradually felt myself getting higher and higher, with effects that lasted well over an hour!
I would recommend this product to those who have been around the block concentrate wise, as it is a very powerful form of extract.
