Concentrates, in all of their many forms, are abundant and easy to find – but not all are equal. Fortunately for me, when I dropped in at Weedmaps headquarters last week, I was asked by an enthusiastic representative if I wanted to try, and perhaps review a brand of concentrates under the name of Essence.
Initially intrigued by the reps’ powerful buzz over the brand’s product, I was even more absorbed once I witnessed what we were dealing with; THCA diamonds and a terpene-rich sauce. Well-versed in your average high-end, or even run-of-the-mill waxes, shatters, cake badders, crumble, and other various forms of concentrates – I could see (and smell) this was going to be a special treat.
Valley Girl Sauce
Appearance: My batch of Valley Girl Sauce, appeared at first glance, to be diamonds in the rough that were suspended in honey. Angular, translucent, and bathed in an amber gravy, the THCA crystal was easily shaved as I mixed and match the terpene-rich batter with just the right amount of psychotropic cannabinoids – making for the perfect dab.
Dab: Slightly Sativa, these Valley Girl concentrates taste as good as they smell. Dabbed off my low-temp quartz bucket, and carb capped for greatest effect, Valley Girl Sauce was a citrus-centric delight. The dab, taken after the quartz bucket was brought to heat and cooled for 30 seconds (better flavor, less cough ), melted like butter in a glass dish on a hot day. Vaped, held, and ghosted, the high from that first dab lasted for hours.
Flavor: Essence Valley Girl Sauce is some first-class fire. Made from a hybridized cross of two OG heavyweights, SFV OG x Face Off OG, Valley Girl Sauce enjoys a seductive flavor profile that’s accentuated by its creamy citrus and pine-like zest.
The High: Inspiring, particularly for those trying to kick-start their weekend, Essence Valley Girl Sauce is not only relaxing but the high also activates the critical thinking process. The potent sauce soothes the aching body as it unlocks human resourcefulness and innovation. A great dab for the creatively inclined, this Valley Girl Sauce is a rising star in the world of high-quality concentrates.
