Excellent batch of Purple OG Full Melt water-extract from Berkeley Patients Care Collective. This one radiates with that unmistakable ‘ice-wax’ glow, a tell tale sign of ‘true’ full melt quality. Just one powerful lung-expanding snapper delivers a deep sinking body-high capable of relaxing muscles & unwinding stress. Incredibly soothing indica warmth, but with just a bit of skunky OG euphoria in the mix. The flavor is skunky & zesty, with notes of lemon & redwood on the exhale. Clear domes off the screen, puddles on the nail, & expansive clouds from the Trippy Stix. Overall one of the best water-extracts I’ve tried since the new year!!
One of the earliest OG hybrids I came across after moving out to Cali (8 years back) was Purple OG. In those days Purple Urkle was the all the rage, & OG was relatively unknown in Norcal (although it was huge in SoCal at the time). Purple OG features the exotic sugary essence & gorgeous lavender hues of original Erkle along with pungent lemon-fuel-funk of OG Kush. Both OG Kush & Urkle are powerful body-relaxers, making Purple OG as full-bodied as they come. Urkle is synonymous for its smooth & sedative effect, while OG is legendary for delivering a powerful buzzing body-high. Purple OG harmoniously blends these two Cali legends to form something truly unique & special.
This belongs on a BPCC trading card for sure!! The golden-amber trichomes are melded together into a single waxy nugget of sticky effervescent hashish. Its rock hard outer membrane has a beautiful ‘sheer amber glow’ similar to solvent oils. I was able to chip off little shards to dunk as if it were a shatter-wax. Inside the rock hard outer membrane is a clay-like ‘cookie dough’ texture that gives off a zesty aroma infused with lemons & freshly cut wood. Immediately boils down into brilliant transparent domes.
So old school & funky!! This one expands deep into the lungs causing some major chest expansion. As soon as the vapor reached the pits of my lungs I felt an instantaneous wave of relief. The flavor has a skunky ‘OG’ essence with hints of lemon, redwood, & diesel fuel on the exhale. For best flavor use a Hakko soldering iron with a titanium screen … 100% lemon-varnish bliss!!
Some highs pack a lot of ‘treble’ … others deliver more a of ‘mid-range’ vibe … this one has tons of ‘BASS’! Within seconds of exhaling the skunky vapor I could feel a soothing wave of indica warmth cover my entire body. Starts out with a sense of energy & euphoria, but quickly transitions into a more sedative experience. The high sinks deep into the muscles providing long-lasting therapeutic relief. This extract might be particularly suitable for patients seeking relief for movement disorders, joint inflammation, & muscle spasms.
