Banana MAC – Live Resin
Banana MAC, also known as “BananaMiracle Alien Cookies,” is a slightly indica dominant hybrid strain (60% indica/40% sativa) created through crossing the delicious Banana Kush X Miracle Alien Cookies (MAC) strains. When it comes to flavor, this bud’s name says it all. Banana MAC packs a sweet nutty banana cookie flavor with a rich tropical nutty exhale. The aroma is just as delicious, with a sweet banana overtone that’s accented by nutty herbs and spices. The Banana MAC high isn’t quite as bright as the flavor, with relaxing effects that are best suited for an evening spent at home rather than out and about. You’ll feel the high build slowly, filling you with a growing happiness that slowly pushes out any negative or racing thoughts with ease. As your mind reaches new heights of happy creativity, a sense of calm will spread throughout your physical form, anchoring you to the couch and leaving you fully immovable for hours on end. With these long-lasting effects and its high 22-26% average THC level, Banana MAC is often chosen to treat those suffering from conditions such as insomnia, mood swings, depression, chronic stress, nausea or appetite loss and chronic pain. This bud has spade-shaped long blueish-green nugs with dark leaves, yellow-orange hairs and a coating of frosty tiny golden amber crystal trichomes.
What is Live Resin?
Unlike the majority of cannabis products, Live resin extract is made from plant material that hasn’t been dried or cured. Live resin is a cannabis concentrate that gets its name from the freshness of the cannabis plant from which it’s made. The starting plant material used for live resin includes fresh flower buds and sugar leaves; the large fan leaves and stems are excluded. The flash-freezing process helps preserve the most desirable compounds and retain the full flavour of the originating cannabis plant. Concentrate enthusiasts tend to gravitate toward live resin for its more flavorful and aromatic dabbing experience. When producing live resin, the primary goal is to capture the massive essence and aroma of the live cannabis plant. Products extracted using the live resin process — flash-freezing the cannabis plant material, then extracting it — are associated with high-quality and flavorful concentrates. Bypassing the typical drying and curing processes allows for a greater proportion of essential oils.
These essential oils, technically called terpenes, are the compounds responsible for the distinctive flavours and aromas in cannabis, and other characteristics to be expressed in the final product.
