Remington Extracts OG #1 Space Crystals Extract Review

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.

Jedi OG Marijuana Strain Review

When I was younger, I had the Star Wars action figure case shaped like Darth Vader’s helmet.  It was chock full of all the original characters in movable plastic.  Long ago, it disappeared as toys tend to when their owners leave home for college.  And although if I still owned that case I could sell them and retire early, I must be satisfied with the nostalgia this strain brings me.

I couldn’t find information on Jedi OG, but I was able to find genetics for Jedi Kush: a hybrid of Death Star and SFV OG.  Death Star can be further broken down to Sour D and Sensi Star.  This at least creates a base to begin to understand its effects.  Odds are about even that this Jedi OG is either just a misnamed Jedi Kush or a hybrid of an OG and Jedi Kush.

Jedi OG is a fantastically complex mural of green hues: among them a kelly green so dark it was almost blue.  Across the bud are rich, espresso brown hairs and a creamy frosting of trichomes.  Reminiscent of an exotic spice market, the scent is all black tea and spice.  It is every bit a sensuous bud that will entice you to light up as soon as you experience it.

An indica high all the way, Jedi OG will have your head in space but your body locked firmly on the couch.  Good for a late night comedown, it will help with light insomnia symptoms, but it’s not enough for an immediate knockout.  Red eyed and dazed, Jedi OG’s high is best described by the word stoned and is that stereotypical burnt out high.  Although it may not seem like that would have medical applications, this type of disconnecting high is perfect for anxiety or PTSD.

GoJilly OG Shatter Review

HGH GoJilly  OG Nug Run shatter absolutely jumped off the shelf when I visited Diamond Grove for the first time.  A combination of Bodhi Seeds’ Goji OG (Snow Lotus x Nepali OG) and Jilly Bean from TGA genetics (Orange Velvet x Space Queen), this product is superior shatter made from superior strains.  Beyond the designer strains in its genetics, this concentrate is beautifully packaged on folded parchment paper and placed inside a small mylar bag.  Outside of all this is a printed envelope with this company logo.  This is where the future of designer weed is going, and HGH is right onthe forefront.

Holy moly this is some clear shatter.  It is a beautiful golden yellow color, and it shimmers glass-like under bright light.  It was a bit soft in these warm California afternoons, but it made loading my Cloud pen no more difficult.  When heated, it let off a light vapor, just a bit expansive, which is a nice change to some cough inducing waxes and shatters I’ve had.  There is a real nice berry and tropical fruit flavor–like pineapple and mango– and a bit of citrusy acid.  Expect some sweet woodiness from the OG Kush as a marginal addition to the taste spectrum.  All in all, it is an absolutely fragrant and delectably tasty shatter.

With Jilly Bean and Goji OG the most likely genetic combo, I was expecting a sativa dominant, happy high.  I was right.  It was immediate and intense.  Not especially clear headed, it was a hazy high.  I had a hard time finishing sentences or concentrating on a single idea when first medicating.  It eventually evened out to a thoughtful, introspective high.  I found myself prone to fits of smiling.  It was one of those delightfully mellow stoner highs that erase pain and problems in a single blow.

Shabba Cookies OG Shatter Review

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.

King Louis XIII Marijuana Strain Review

King Louis XIII is one of those strains that is on the menu of any dispensary worth its salt.  A classic, its genetics point directly to an indica base.  Many growers believe it to possess partial OG Kush genetics or possibly even be an OG Kush phenotype.  Determining genetic parenting can get murky, especially when the much beloved and, therefore, cross-bred OG Kush comes into play, whose own genetics are largely unclear.  During my exploration of the grow boards, I even heard one rather ridiculous story that this strain was King Louis of France’s favorite strain, given to him as a trophy after the war of 1808, though I see that anecdote as highly unlikely.

The sensuous profile of this strain is all pine and spice, with a potent skunk follow.  It is “THE” smell I think of when I think of marijuana.  I am instantly reminded of when I first started smoking pot and the smell was still new to me.  The green hit mirrors the pine, while the exhale is all earthy spice, like juniper and rich hazelnut.  It was a bit harsh in the throat, made even more noticeable after reviewing a bowl of a lighter sativa. Speaking of sativas, King Louis XIII is sativa like in its bud structure, though it was left a bit leafy.  And what is this?  A seed!  I’ll be saving that for later.  Overall, this is a high quality grow that could use a better trim.

More than any other effect, I found King Louis XIII to be surprisingly sedative, necessary in any anti-anxiety medication.  A zoned out head high adds to this relaxation, since it removes the mind from all worries.  I normally go straight for sativas for my stress alleviation, and I even had some great sativa choices on hand this week.  But several times, even during the day, I reached past them to grab my jar of King Louis XIII.  Its sedative manner simply attracted me when I was overwhelmed by work.  I also found it to offer relief from minor aches and pains and excellent reprieve from insomnia when used late at night.
