Snow Leopard Shatter - Honu

When I was at Honu, they were packaging up some of this strain's dabs. I don't know if this is the same batch, but I got it when I saw it. I ended up smoking it with co-host Ryan Smith on New Years Eve! Just a little afternoon dabs to hang out. I smoked it again later at night.

This Snow Leopard was the first dab on two different rigs - my new black mini-rig and co-host Ryan's new nectar collector style rig. I'll get pictures of that rig at the next Marijuana Encyclopedia recording, and by then other parts of this dab rig will arrive. Hopefully it all fits, as it's relatively small - just 30cm or so.


Butane shatter can get really clear - this is a great example. The color is consistent throughout and translucent. The quality is apparent on this.

Manipulating it, it's crisp but with a little bit of warming, it's malleable. I was easily able to curl it, and I left a fingerprint while just touching it for a zeroth of a second.

The smell on the shatter is remarkably citrus, clean, and expanding. The terpenes on this are so ringing and clean - limonene is very present as you unwrap the waxed paper, it just pops into existence.

This concentrate burned super clean. There was very little smokiness, and virtually no rough residue.

On the inhale, there's a creamy mouthfeel, very kushy. The flavor on the inhale is citrus and sharply trichromey. That THC crispness rings on the exhale as well, with a smooth exhale no matter how big a hit we pulled.

The nectar collector's tip cooled faster, leaving more of a flavorful hit than a big smokey hit. This bubbler builds up a fair amount of smoke, and we pulled at few different nail temperatures. This is just a (very) cheap glass nail, and when I get a couple quartz nails that are incoming, it'll be even better, I'm sure. Still a great dabbing experience.

The high on this is quick. It's a fast smack of dumb right upside the head. I got a warming body high that was deep down into my bones. I was stuck - even if there's no CBDs in this, it felt like it did. My ass was planted in my chair, like I was tied down.

My mind wandered, happily while my head got massive euphoria. The heady, bubbly euphoria on this was magnificent. Elation is a strong side effect of this dab. Legs were medium, with a clean come down.

Overall, this was everything I needed and wanted. I haven't dabbed in a while, and both Ryan and I got new rigs without telling the other one! We both just showed up to a brief smoke session with new glass. Flavor is clean and crisp, the high is deeply medical. There was a clean end and I felt great all day after. Adding to all that, I know just how awesome the product is cared for by the folks at Honu. This was a seriously Happy New Year!
