I’ll admit it, I’m a very lucky guy. I live in a state with legal cannabis and have another legal cannabis state within a Ten-minute drive from my home. It allows me to have the opportunity to sample a plethora of new and exciting strains that are currently available in the Pacific Northwest. On a recent trip across the bridge, I came across a brand new strain in the Animal Face Live Resin from Beehive Extracts, in collaboration with Sugarbud, both out of Portland, Oregon, for $24 USD a gram. At first glance, the Animal Face Live Resin was stunning as it looked like a beautiful mix of Diamonds and Sauce that had a golden-amber hue to it. To give you a little lineage background, the Animal Face is a Sativa-Dominant hybrid (80% sativa/20% Indica) that crosses the potent Face-Off OG with another heady strain in the Animal Mints. I’m not usually a Sativa guy, but I had to give this one a try as I absolutely love both of these parents and the word on the street on her was solid.
I decided to go with my David Goldstein Fritted Disc rig for this session and upon opening the jar I was hit in the face with deep Citrus and Diesel notes. The box on the Animal Face said this sample had a total terpene level of 7.30% and I could believe it. As I dug my nail into the beautiful diamonds and sauce I was very pleased with the consistency that was nice and easy to work with as I grabbed a perfect sized dab. As soon as the resin hit the quartz banger, I could instantly taste the delicious gas and lemon notes with a hint of pine on the back. This gear was heavy and upon exhale, I was left trying to catch my breath as my forehead began to sweat profusely. This was some definite one-hitter quitter fire as I was stuck in a deep narcotic fade for the next 2-3 hours. Usually, Sativa’s don’t hit me with this kind of punch but occasionally I find one that lowers the boom and this was it. I was so nice and stoned and couldn’t feel any of my usual back and neck pains. My demeanor was mellow and relaxed and felt like I was floating on light fluffy clouds. Be warned, the Animal Face Live Resin will give you some serious munchies as I took down an entire Margherita Pizza and some Garlic Knots all to myself.
In the end, the Animal Face Live Resin was superb on every level. When it came to her strength and potency, the Animal Face was heavy and narcotic and alleviated my chronic pain, providing me the relaxation I so desire, so I gave her a score of 9.5/10. When it came to the flavor and pungency of the Animal Face, she was beyond delicious. Her bouquet of gas and lemons left a thick taste on my tongue that lasted well after exhale. I literally could not stop opening the jar and smelling her, so for that reason, I gave the Animal Face a score of 9.7/10 making it one of the tastiest extracts I’ve sampled this year. If you have an opportunity to get your hands on some Animal Face, do not hesitate as you won’t be disappointed.
