Wedding Cake Live Resin Batter
When it comes to our concentrates, we’re pretty particular – if we’re going to put the City Trees name on something, we always bring our uncompromising best to the table, every time. When it comes to finding collaborators on the same wavelength, we couldn’t have found a better match than State Flower. With a shared vision for making sustainable, quality products, we’re honored to have worked together to produce their first ever live resin representation of one of their most sought-after strains – Wedding Cake. Crafted with State Flower’s Environcann certified flower, extracted by our expert lab team, and presented in our recyclable packaging, we couldn’t imagine a more perfect pair.
We sat down with our Director of Laboratory Operations, Dr. Dominick Monaco, to talk about how we arrived at the rich, flavorful, live resin batter you can now find at Oasis Cannabis Dispensary, The Apothecarium, and select dispensaries across Nevada.
Why did you select Wedding Cake for this collaboration?
Wedding Cake was chosen for this collaboration for a number of different reasons: This is a highly sought out strain in multiple markets, the resin production of this plant creates higher yields during the extraction process, and the aroma is unique.
What makes this concentrate unique and what kind of effects can users expect?
The uniqueness of this concentrate is owed to it’s aroma and effect. The terpene profile is floral, creamy, and volatile, making for a flavorful amalgamation of different, yet synergistic, notes. The effect of this hybrid strain is powerful and will impress even the most tenured connoisseurs, with a full body effect that will also calm the mind. The most prevalent terpenes in the starting flower that helped lead us to this decision are as follows: Myrcene, Limonene, Caryophyllene, Linalool, & Humulene.
How did the idea for this product come to be? (& why a batter?)
City Trees and State Flower always want to bring their best to the table in every endeavor and we believe this collaboration will truly represent the expertise both organizations have to offer. Through a carefully curated Vendor Qualification process between both parties, the idea to collaborate and highlight both companies strengths in a single product became wildly apparent.
We chose batter for this product for multiple reasons: batter is a nice homogenous mixture of cannabinoids and terpenes & owing to that, the user will experience the same flavors and effects every time; batter is easier to physically work with for the end-user and we want to make the experience enjoyable and simple in application.
More About Wedding Cake
If you’re hearing wedding bells, you’re not alone — City Trees’ latest limited edition release (available now) is sure to impress any live resin fan in Las Vegas. City Trees teamed up with our friends over at State Flower to create the Wedding Cake live resin batter, a creamy, terpene-rich extract with relaxing yet euphoric effects.
Wedding Cake (sometimes known as Pink Cookies) is an indica-dominant hybrid strain from parents Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie. The strain’s reputation for having a high THC content makes it an exceptional choice for seasoned cannabis consumers and concentrate connoisseurs.
This strain’s distinct terpene profile prominently features limonene, caryophyllene, and myrcene, which contribute to its tangy, peppery, and slightly floral taste. This concentrate truly capitalizes on the best of both strain types — the energizing, mood-boosting effects of the limonene strike a harmonious balance with the stress-reducing and relaxing effects of the caryophyllene and myrcene.
What is Live Resin?
Our newest release also has the added benefit of being a live concentrate. Live resin is a specific type of concentrate that contains a higher amount of the plant’s natural terpenes after extraction than other concentrate types. Fresh-picked buds undergo several processes during the typical extraction procedure that damages and degrades their natural terpenes. Most concentrates contain added terpenes to make up for this, but live resin concentrates are processed in a special way that preserves more of the natural terpenes and plant material.
