This sample had the “lunar surface” look that we’ve seen from some Top Shelf Extracts products in the past, where the butane bubbles purging out leave behind perfect circular tunnels all over the surface. The luminous yellow-gold color was immediately attractive, and upon closer inspection, there were no signs of any particulates or foreign matter. Texture-wise, this one was simple to ‘slice’ with a dabber and stuck on the end of most implements rather easily, making it easier to apply than many flakier extracts.
Our trend of not being terribly impressed with the flavor and aroma of mixed strain concentrates continues here, with the fairly indistinct flavor this one provided. One reviewer picked up some almost minty, fresh notes — but otherwise, the staff didn’t really seem to enjoy it much and basically said it tasted “hashy”. The smoke was expansive but smooth, only causing coughing on larger dabs.

This extract didn’t have the most pleasing flavor or smell, due largely in part to being made from a mix of strains rather than only one. However, the effects that came from the mix seemed to fill the niche of rather sedative BHO, which seems increasingly rare on the market. normally we get a very cerebral and heady experience, but this one had rather direct body effects and definitely kept us sitting and relaxed. We loved the color and the lack of particulates we observed with this sample, and it showed all the signs of being well-purged and clean. This isn’t our favorite product from Top Shelf Extracts, but it fills a needed niche medically and would earn a spot in the rotation for patients who require strong evening relief for muscle pain and (eventually) sleep.
