Current Dabz: 6 Extracts For 710 Day

710 (July 10) is the day designated by dabbers, vapers, twaxers, and other enthusiasts, to celebrate their love of cannabis oil and wax extracts. The holiday gets its name and date from whomever first turned the word “OIL” upside down and noticed that the upended letters resemble the numbers 7 – 1 – 0. In this Current Dabz installment, we’ll review and recommend 6 different potent extracts to help you enjoy your 710 festivities.

Overview:

Raw Garden’s Sangria sauce is the perfect tonic for nighttime relaxation and slumber and one of our favorite extracts of all time. We’re recommending it for 710 because it will ameliorate any anxieties, assuage any stress, and reduce any pain you may be feeling, making it easier to participate in the day’s activities. If you drink too much espresso that morning, or if you vaped a sativa that’s giving you the jitters, a hearty banger dab of Sangria will sooth out the rough edges and put you in a happy place.

This Sangria sauce is potent and effective for a number of reasons, in spite of its relatively modest THC level. Those tantalized and turned on by the rich, full-bodied, delight of berry and earth aromas and flavors will experience a particularly enriched and intensified Cherry Slurm, indica entourage effect. Others who respond well to CBD will enjoy the benefits of Sangria’s 5% CBD content courtesy of its Cherry Wine genetics. Sour Tangie’s inclusion adds a slight anti-depressant buzz that all will enjoy.

  • Try Again: Yes

Overview:

CaliGreenGold extracts are packaged beautifully in large golden-yellow boxes with stylized California Gold Rush font printed in sparkly green ink. The insides of the boxes are forest green with shiny gold lettering in the same western font. And each jar lid includes a tiny heart-shaped bauble glued to it. CaliGreenGold’s wax retails for about $5 more than our other lower price point selections, but it is well worth it.

We were attracted to the brand by their gorgeous, detailed packaging, but it was the strain, Dairy Queen, that sealed the deal. We thoroughly enjoy Dairy Queen’s nuanced indica-sativa balance and wanted to revisit the strain’s unique and surprisingly gustatory and intense cherry and cheese flavor, our second favorite (after berry and earthy).

Although some hybrid crosses lose the desirable qualities of their discrete parent strains, Dairy Queen not only maintains, but maximizes the strengths of its Cheese and Space Queen provenance. The latter’s euphoria-inducing, joyful, and uplifting properties, combined with Cheese’s relaxation-heavy effects, produces a very happy, alert, but calm and relaxed high we can only compare favorably to our go-to daytime strain, Durban Poison.

Raw Garden 3 Bears OG Live Resin

Highlights:

  • Genetics: Bear OG x Karma’s OG Cut x Triangle Kush
  • Type: Indica-dominant hybrid
  • Appearance: Peach-apricot spreadable fruit
  • Texture: Gold dust paste
  • Aromas: Green Apple, pine, berry, and rosemary
  • Dab Temperature(s): 540
  • Flavors: Berry, pine, and earthy, like a berry kush
  • Effects: Happy, relaxed, sleepy, and calm
  • Problems Treated: Insomnia, pain, depression, anxiety, and stress
  • Negatives: n/a
  • Testing: 73.37% Total THC, .16% CBD
  • Potency: Really strong
  • Overall Rating (1 – 5) (5 is highest): 5
  • Try Again: Yes

Overview:

Raw Garden’s 3 Bears OG is another live resin strain we love for its robust berry and earthy flavor that acts synergistically with the wax’s other properties to produce a very relaxed, calm, and happy high.

Although we’ve had mixed experiences with OG strains, 3 Bears’ combination of Triangle Kush’s heavy sedative effects, Karma’s OG triple-OG relaxation genetics, and Bear OG’s Kush and OG parentage make Raw Garden’s 3 Bears OG sauce a relaxation and euphoria powerhouse.

Raw Garden Extreme OG Live Resin Sauce

710 Day Raw Garden Extreme OG Live Resin Sauce with Packaging

Highlights:

  • Genetics: Fire OG x Green Ribbon
  • Type: Indica-dominant hybrid
  • Appearance: Butterscotch candy
  • Texture: Viscous gel
  • Aromas: Lemon-lime, berry, floral, and pine
  • Dab Temperature(s): 540
  • Flavors: Woodsy, earthy, and citrus-fruity
  • Effects: Relaxed, sleepy, and calm
  • Problems Treated: Insomnia, pain, depression, anxiety, and stress
  • Negatives: Loss of focus
  • Testing: 72.92% Total THC, .12% CBD
  • Potency: Really strong
  • Overall Rating (1 – 5) (5 is highest): 5
  • Try Again: Yes

Overview:

Raw Garden’s Extreme OG live resin is another calming, relaxing, happiness-inducing wax designed to melt away any troubling concerns, enabling you to enjoy whatever you’re doing so you can live in the moment.

Currently holding a 4.9 (out of 5) rating on Leafly, Extreme OG’s genetics incorporate Fire OG’s heavy analgesic properties and Green Ribbon’s Green Crack-sourced sativa edge to produce an alert and focused, yet pain-mitigating, relaxation. Extreme OG slows your thoughts, calms your pulse, and relaxes your muscles, allowing you to lose yourself in the moment both mentally and physically.

The contrast between Extreme OG’s crisply sweet, tart, and floral aroma and the earthiness that infuses when the wax is dabbed is stark and highly enjoyable. The aroma tantalizes and teases your olfactory receptors, drawing you in to delight in the sweetness like a hummingbird to a sugary treat, then nourishes you with a hearty, savory meal.

Raw Garden Kosher Berry Live Resin

710 Day Raw Garden Kosher Berry Live Resin with Packaging

Highlights:

  • Genetics: Strawberry Haze x Kosher OG x Chem Grape
  • Type: Sativa-dominant hybrid
  • Appearance: Dollop of applesauce
  • Texture: Granule-thickened sauce
  • Aromas: Strawberry and tree fruit
  • Dab Temperature(s): 540
  • Flavors: Strawberry, woodsy, berry-citrus
  • Effects: Focused, creative, and energetic
  • Problems Treated: Fatigue and depression
  • Negatives: Anxiety
  • Testing: 76.91% Total THC, .19% CBD
  • Potency: Really strong
  • Overall Rating (1 – 5) (5 is highest): 4
  • Try Again: Yes

Overview:

Kosher Berry live resin is another incredibly complex, intense, aromatic and flavorful sauce from the prolific extract masters at Raw Garden. A very distinct strawberry essence fills your nostrils and and caresses your taste buds when you inhale Kosher Berry’s sweet aroma and taste its earthy vapor. Strawberry Haze seems to be the dominant parent of this sativa-leaning hybrid, leaving Kosher OG (an OG Kush) to provide the fruity earthiness tasted when dabbing this live resin, and the mysterious Chem Grape (Chemdawg x Grape Ape?) to add sweetness.

Durban Poison is our benchmark against which we measure all other sativa or sativa-dominant strains because it provides us with such an ideal daytime high. Raw Garden’s Kosher Berry compares favorably to Durban Poison, but fails to match the latter’s emotional and psychological uplift. Kosher Berry sauce does provide stimulation, alertness, and energy, similar to caffeine, so much so that our ears began ringing.

Although Kosher Berry isn’t as uplifting as we’d hoped, it does generate positive thoughts with only a residual hint of anxiety, which recesses after a short time. We recommend dabbing this live resin in conjunction with some sort of activity requiring focus and mental energy. Consider a dab before you head out to do your 710 Day shopping to energize focus and take care of business, before returning home to sample your new purchases.

Beezle Banana Reserve Live Resin Sauce

Beezle Banana Reserve Live Resin Sauce with Packaging

Highlights:

  • Genetics: Banana OG x Black Lime Reserve x Glemons
  • Type: Indica-dominant hybrid
  • Appearance: Peach jello or pineapple Life-Savers candy
  • Texture: Jelly
  • Aromas: Vanilla, banana, spice, and citrus
  • Dab Temperature(s): 540
  • Flavors: Vanilla, creamy, earthy
  • Effects: Relaxed, sleepy, and calm
  • Problems Treated: Insomnia, pain, depression, anxiety, and stress
  • Negatives: Anxiety
  • Testing: 73.12% Total THC, .043% CBD
  • Potency: Really strong
  • Overall Rating (1 – 5) (5 is highest): 4
  • Try Again: Yes

Overview:

We’ve reviewed Beezle’s excellent and affordable live resins here before and are fans of the brand and their wax. We don’t find Beezle products at all the dispensaries we patronize, so don’t buy it as often as we’d like, but when we noticed it a few weeks back we happily grabbed a gram for 710 Day.

A few weeks ago we picked up a gram of the company’s Banana Reserve live resin sauce and have been enjoying its soporific effects ever since. This is another wax strain emphasizing relaxation, calm, and pain-reduction that won’t knock you out but will enable you to enjoy your leisure hours with a small dose of euphoria.

Unlike most other wax strains we purchase, Banana Reserve avoids berry and most citrus flavors and aromas, instead yielding a creamy, sweet, vanilla aroma and an earthy vanilla flavor. Banana OG gives the creamy vanilla aroma, while Black Lime Reserve provides the earthiness of its dabbed flavor. Glemons, the third of Banana Reserve’s 3 parents strains, remains a mystery to us.
