I’ve been on the search for new and exotic strains in my neck of the woods recently and boy have I’ve been finding them. On my recent trip over the Columbia River into Portland, Oregon, I found a brand new strain I knew nothing about in the Headstash Live Sauce from Artifact Extracts in collaboration with Foley Farms, both out of the Eugene, Oregon area for $24 USD a gram. I’ve had the pleasure of sampling a few of Artifact’s products and have been completely blown away by their quality of extracts. To give you a little lineage background, Headstash is an Indica-Dominant hybrid that was bred by Karma Genetics out of Holland and is a Four-Way cross of Girl Scout Cookies, Cannarado Genetics¬†Cherrie Pie and Karma’s own Karmarado OG male. They then backcrossed the result with their famed Biker Kush cut creating Headstash. The strain placed first in the Best Indica category at the 2015 Amsterdam Elite Cup so I was beyond jazzed to sample her.
I decided to use my Toro Glass Bubbler for this session and upon opening the jar I was able to smell mellow Pine and Floral notes along with a hint of skunk in the back. My first impression of this sauce was just that, saucy as this gear looked nice and thin. As I stuck my nail into the live Sauce, I was very happy with the consistency as it was simple to work with as I easily grabbed a nice sized glob. If there was one issue I had with the Headstash live sauce it was the extract was too thin and if you didn’t have your heat source ready it would drip off the nail, so I had to be on top of it as not to make a mess. Once the nail hit the banger I was instantly able to taste the Headstash’s flavor profile that wasn’t as strong as I would have liked and left a very mild taste of cookies and pine on my lips. Upon exhale, I found the Headstash had a mellow fade but nothing too impressive. I was stoned for maybe an hour and was somewhat relaxed but my tolerance level requires a lot more stoniness to do the trick. I did find the Headstash took away my back and neck pains, but not for very long.
Overall, I found the Headstash Live Sauce to be just a satisfactory sample when compared to most of the gear I’ve been trying lately. When it came to her taste and pungency, I didn’t taste enough of the terpenes, especially with a terpene level of 9.45%. In the end, I was left wanting and not satisfied in the flavor department so I gave the Headstash Live Sauce a dismal score of 7.0/10. When it came to the Headstash’s strength and potency, I also found this sample to be lacking as I barely felt the stone on this one. After two big dabs, I was truly left disappointed so I gave her a score of 7.5/10. Sadly, this wasn’t a great example of the quality of extract Artifact is capable of so I would steer clear of the Headstash Live Sauce as there are better options to be had.
