Sour Pebbles Live Resin
Live resin distinguishes itself from other types of cannabis concentrates because it is created with fresh frozen cannabis—plants that are frozen immediately after being cut down at harvest. These plants are kept frozen throughout the extraction process and skip the drying, curing, and trimming phases of harvesting. It is a more malleable concentrate, sitting somewhere between a wax and a sauce—not quite like taffy yet not too wet. It is typically dark yellow in color but can vary from light yellow to white. Like all cannabis concentrates, it is extremely sticky, so you’ll need a dab tool to handle it. Live resins tend to be potent with a lot of THC, and consumers love it because of its intense flavors and aromas.
Sour Pebbles, with whopping THC levels, is a good choice for tokers who want potent cerebral effects and a truly powerful case of the munchies that can be used to treat wasting and eating disorders.
Sour Pebbles is also effective at treating anxiety, depression, and nausea, though its high THC values may limit its medical effectiveness somewhat. CBD levels, for example, are very low, as they typically are in high-THC plants. That means patients with seizure disorders and other conditions that respond to CBD shouldn’t rely on Sour Pebbles as their sole source of cannabis treatment.
Sour Pebbles is a sativa-dominant hybrid, though it’s hard to find any solid information on the exact sativa/indica ratio. It’s a cross of Fruity Pebble OG and Alien Diesel, and it scored 3rd place in the medical sativa category at the 2014 Seattle Cannabis Cup competition. The unique morning aroma is sour, with hints of fruit and breakfast cereal. The flavor is also sour, but comes with notes of candy and gasoline.
