Have you ever walked into a dispensary and seen that strain? You know the one. The cut you’ve heard all about from your friends but haven’t gotten to try yet. In the blink of an eye, a myth becomes reality and life at that very moment is once again amazing or at least somewhat decent. You’re finally going to see what the talk has been about and you are more than ready to take this new friend for a ride. This was the case last week when I walked into a local shop and saw the French Toast Live Resin from Svin Garden out of Washington State. From what I can tell, the French Toast is an Indica-dominant hybrid (60% Indica/40% Sativa) that crosses Paris OG with Face Off OG (BX2) and is said to be absolutely scrumptious. As I looked at this golden-orange extract, the terpene crystals caught my eye in the light and looked like miniature diamond-coated bubbles. I was so very ready to give it a try and at a price of just $18 USD a gram, how could anyone possibly go wrong.
I decided to vape the French Toast resin in my Toro Glass Bubbler and as soon as I opened the jar, I was hit with a pungent bouquet of what I’d call diesel and brown butter. There was also a slight hint of pine but the scent of gas was overwhelming and I mean that in a good way. As I dug my nail into the extract I was a tiny bit disappointed as it began to crumble up, but thankfully it was a sticky crumble and still easy to work with. I grabbed myself I healthy-sized dab and once my nail made contact with the quartz banger, it was blast off time. I could instantly taste the smooth and delectable gas flavor along with a creamy almost tiramisu finish that reminded me of twinkies with a hint of coffee. As I exhaled, I found myself choking and instantly began feeling it in my neck and legs. This was some heavy-duty fire and right away I started sweating profusely from my forehead and in need of some ice water. I was, no pun intended, toasted. The French Toast was the perfect high for a night hanging out at home. Extremely narcotic and heavy on the body, this stuff instantly relieved my back pain and removed any and all tension and stress I’d been feeling. I was super medicated yet still able to hold a conversation which is pretty unusual for me. I eventually ended the night by falling into a nice deep coma and woke up the next morning feeling slightly stoned, which in my mind were both positives.
In the end, the French Toast live resin was definitely cup winner material when it came to flavor and pungency as I was able to smell and taste her well after exhale. The diesel along with its creamy coffee flavor was unlike anything I’ve tasted recently and for that reason, I gave the French Toast a score of 9.5/10. When it came to the strength and potency of this extract, I was beyond satisfied as the stone was heavy and felt as powerful as an opiate. I was completely ripped but not a couch-locked zombie fade. I was still able to function and enjoy my night, so I gave it a score of 9.6/10. Now, I’m probably biased as I am a sucker for a delicious breakfast off the griddle, but the French Toast live resin was a legitimate contender for “Extract of the Year.” If you’re lucky enough to find a sample on your shelf, grab it up as she’s truly a tasty treat.
