Banana OG from Moxie Extract Review by OCWeedReview.Com
It doesn’t take a long time browsing through the Review’s Instagram to see that we love Moxie. Every half gram we come across in the shops is visually striking, just begging to be photographed. But Moxie’s quality doesn’t reside in just its beauty. These well rounded stunners are terpy and flavorful and incredibly potent, making them well worth the top shelf price.
Although a relatively obscure strain, Banana OG is likely a mix of an uncertain banana flavored strain and OG Kush. Adding to the enigmatic genetic makeup is the possibility of it being the branded Apothecary Genetics hybrid. If that is the case, then it adds in a second OG cut into the mix with SFV OG.
The flavor of Moxie’s Banana OG explodes with tropical pineapple and banana flavors. An unmistakable profile, the daiquiri like taste is a great novelty, like sipping a tropical drink on white sand beach, and comes through in even high temp dabs. The extract is barely opaque and tinted a luminous champagne yellow. A well crafted shatter, only in the highest heat did it lose its hard, glassy consistency.
An easy hitting OG, Banana OG is not extreme or significant in its effects. Instead, it is mellow and refreshing throughout its range. At its peak, Banana OG can be a bit slowing — not so much couch-lock as simple contentment. Like day drinking on vacation, it’s pure relaxation.
When I think of Maui Blue, my mind wanders to sun-drenched beaches awash with wave after wave of cerulean-blue water. Of course, I’ve never been to Hawaii, so I have no idea what it actually looks like. However, everyone in my family besides myself owns a timeshare on Kauai. Through the years, there has been no shortage of stories of its inspired loveliness, but this loveliness comes for a price. Now that I’ve found this 78% THC Maui Blue shatter from Kush Extracts, though, anywhere I session becomes my own personal paradise.
The first thing I noticed about this extract was the gorgeously glowing light amber color. It was unlike any shatter I had seen before. It was such a golden orange hue that it seemed to glow iridescently through the parchment paper in which it came wrapped. When the light, any light, hit this shatter, it lit up in aesthetically interesting ways. I could have photographed this strain all day long. But eventually it was time to tear it apart for reviewing.
Dabs of this Maui Blue released really flavorful vapor. Even if you aren’t for low temp dabs, this one is worth the complex taste. The dark berry terpene exists in spades from the Blueberry, but it is equally matched by Maui Waui’sacidic lemon and fragrant pine. It had a sweetness though, typical to both strains, that I enjoyed through every hit. Kush Extract’s shatter was also easy to dab over long sessions. I’m a cougher, but I noticed no irritation or fatigue in the lungs.
This Maui Blue hybrid is perfect for those looking for a nice sativa lean. I’ve always loved the Maui Waui high, dominant in this extract, ever since I first reviewed it. It is energetic and purposeful, and I noted its tendency to promote creativity. I took a gram with me out to Joshua Tree and went wandering among the rocks. The mostly cerebral high increased visual and aural stimuli, making for a heightened experience. But don’t be surprised if the Blueberry sneaks in to knock you flat. A base in many of my favorite strains, Blueberry is a solid indica offering both pain relief and a body buzz bordering on physical euphoria. While testing this shatter, I took more than my fair share of unscheduled dab naps. Overall, though, Maui Blue is an effective daytime sativa high, great for depression, that also brings with it a tangibly comforting physical sensation.

Trying to photograph this concentrate was like trying to photograph a ghost. All you were left with was a blurry, transparent smudge in your picture. But when the light hit the sap just right, this extract gleamed. Clear Concentrates is a prime player in the concentrates market, and after this sampling, I can certainly see why. I’m not entirely sure of the strains involved in creating this extract, but I found it similar to Pineapple Chunk, with its Cheese, Skunk #1, and Pineapple genetics.
This fantastic sap is so light that it is almost translucent, leaving just a hint of “golden” hue for the eye to latch onto. “Clear Concentrates” indeed. There was a mildly sweet tropical fruit and some citrus acidity blended in the scent. The taste, like a warm pineapple upside down cake–you know, the ones with the pineapple rings and cherries on toothpicks–is luscious.
Saps present easy vaping on a hot nail. It is a breeze to load a glob: just stab and twist and your dab is ready. I’ve used the term “explodes into vapor” before on this site, but never so literally as with this concentrate. Quick lungs or a carbcap are necessary if you use a domeless, as I do. As with other saps I’ve tried, a little seems to go a long way, and this gram lasted me much longer than an equal weight in honeycomb or wax would.
Pineapple Cheesecake proved itself a stimulating and energetic high. It was clear headed and purposeful, similar to a Strawberry Cough, but more mellow in the mood. The effects do not reside only in the mind, and there is a strong body melt after a big dab. Sedate body effects work to mitigate anxiety or minimize most pain. A surprisingly erudite high for an indica dominant, you shouldn’t be afraid to medicate during daytime hours, regardless of what is on your to-do list.

When Strictly OG from out of LA arranged for me to review Remington Extracts’ solventless Space Crystals, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Then they arrived at my doorstep, packaged in their cleverly re-imagined matchbook with the clean 60’s space age design. I couldn’t wait to tear into them. Anything packaged this well has to be exceptional. And true to expectations, these crystalline extractions are as pure a concentrate as any I’ve seen before.
I took to these Space Crystals immediately upon beginning my review, and this is almost entirely due to their stability, even at high temps. The OC Weed Review’s office get blasted by afternoon sun, buddering shatters and causing most waxes to become gooey, making them difficult to work with. However, these Space Crystals are a dream to handle, and it was a breeze pulling off perfectly sized dabs every time.
Remington Extracts’ OG #1 Space Crystals absolutely glistened in the sun when we photographed them, giving off a golden yellow hue. Some of the fatty lipids in the extract leached out in our SoCal heat, as can be seen in the picture, but this didn’t affect my experience negatively. Lower temp dabs, as suggested on the packaging, revealed that wooded flavor of a conifer forest early in the damp morning dew — a rich, earthy flavor — for which OGs are known. Hands down one of the tastiest extracts I’ve had this year.
Although I personally prefered the SD x OG in terms of its sativa leaning effects, this OG #1 is the better of the two samples we received. In comparison to the hybrid, this OG #1 is lighter in its color, smoother in itshit, cleaner in its taste. It is everything a great extract should be.
With SC Labs test results at over 88% THC, this extract is not for the faint at heart. However, like all great OG phenotypes, there is a great mellow build to the high. There is a certain body buzz created by a good OG, like being hugged by hundreds of butterflies or faeries or other tiny winged entities that people who are into crystals like. It is the denotative definition of comfort, perfect after a stressful day or to ease away mild pain. It causes some drag when put to long sessions, resulting in a couch-locking effect. The wonderful thing about a potent extract like this is that a little goes a long way and lasts for hours. Meaning you will be enjoying these Space Crystals for a long time.
Order yours from Stricly OG.

In Hebrew, Shabba means to swear an oath. In Jamaica, it means “I understand”. In terms of shatter, it seems to mean knockout amazing. While it is an easy guess that there is some GSC in this hybrid, I had no end of a hard time researching this particular genetic structure. The closest I came to some solid evidence hinted at a Girl Scout Cookies x XXX OG. I’m short to jump to hasty conclusions, so it’s best to simply take it for face value.
This nug-run shatter from HGH Extractions is extremely light in color, a promising trait for a clean vaping shatter. Out of my Gpen microG, I was pulling nice smooth hits and creating huge clouds of vapor. The sweetness of the vapor was cotton candy like from the Cookies, making for a pleasant vaping experience. There was also some mild earthy spice from the possible OG link that made for a warm, baked taste.
As with most high percentage concentrates, there was an immediate blast to the head when taking a dab. I was left light headed and loose limbed. The high isn’t just in the body, and matching the relaxing body buzz was a mellow and spacy cerebral high. I found Shabba Cookies to be most effective for migraines and joint or muscle pain, while the mild mood elevation makes your physical discomfort more bearable while being treated.
