Paris has offered Locals high quality concentrates for over a year now. Karat diamonds, terp crystals, live resin, and many other top notch extracts. For a while they have had other noteworthy companies in the Industry, such as oil tycoon, extract the flowers that they grow. Recently, Paris has invested into tons of new extracting equipment. Now, they can do all of their extractions in house. This ensures consistent, high quality extracts.
Paris has three different Live Resin Terp Diamonds to offer on their first round. Le Blanc, Bordeaux, and Paris OG. All three have a beautiful, white, semi clear, wet sugar crystal consistency. This is done through an extraction method called color remediation.
Color remediation uses numerous types of media to remove dark colors from oils made with ethanol or hydrocarbon extraction systems. When dabbing color remediated oil, it is recommended to use low temperatures. This is because the concentrate typically has a higher amount of terpenes. Higher temperatures could cause the hit to be harsher than it should be. Also being a live resin, everything was made from full flower. The whole batch was cut from the plant, frozen, and extracted within 48 hours!
Below is my personal take on the strains. All strains have a slow build up for the high that took about 5-15 minutes to build up. Each high lasted a very long time as well. For myself, I usually get full effects from most strains within 5 minutes and the highs don’t last nearly as long as these concentrates did for me.
Bordeaux – 60/40 Sativa Hybrid – Top Terpenes: Bisabolol, Caryophyllene, and Humulene
Smell: Skunky, Pungent, Fruity
Taste: Starts off with nodes of skunk and earthiness and smoothly transitions into a very fruity aftertaste
Effect: Relaxing, uplifted, and euphoric
Le Blanc – 80/20 Sativa Hybrid – Top Terpenes: Limonene, Caryophyllene, Myrcene
Smell: Fresh, floral, sugary sweetness, and a hint a pine
Taste: Sweet and fresh
Effect: Straight to the head, focused, creative, and a little euphoric.
Paris OG – 50/50 Hybrid – Top Terpenes: Bisabolol, Caryophyllene, Humulene
Smell: Sweet, skunky, earthy, citrus, and pine
Taste: Incredibly smooth and sweet on the inhale. Earthy, piney, and a little sweet on the exhale
Effect: Relaxed, euphoric, calm, really spacey
My personal favorite is the Paris OG. The smell draws you in and this strain leaves a long lasting sweet aftertaste. The high is perfect for bed, a stroll, or watching television. Just try not to watch anything you need to follow too closely, this is a really spacey strain. Austin Weiss, an extractor at Paris, says his favorite strain is Bordeaux! He loves it because it is “super fruity and always has the best high”.
Le Blanc is definitely a go to for anyone who needs a productive high, a creative boost, or for a day that is busy and you do not want to be slowed down. I found that the Bordeaux was fantastic for when I got home from work. It settles you into your evening to be nice and relaxing without making you tired or slow down.
