About Trade Roots LA x CBD Live Sauce

I’m not a huge fan of concentrates. I’ve had some bad experiences with a dab rig and smoking something that’s 70, 80, or 90% THC doesn’t work well for my endocannabinoid system. But as someone who works in cannabis, I constantly hear about the flavor, the terpene profile, and the quality of good concentrates and it makes me curious.

That’s why, when I came across this 1:1 live sauce at Massachusetts dispensary Trade Roots, I knew I had to try some. I spend a fair amount of time researching products, talking to shop owners, and visiting dispensaries myself. So when I tell you that I had never seen a 1:1 concentrate before, you’ll understand how rare it is.

Most concentrates are all about the THC – some test as high as 90%+ for THCa content. And for someone susceptible to the negative effects of THC in high doses, it can be a bad time very quickly. But with CBD mixed in, maybe I would enjoy the experience more. So I bought it.

First of all, the smell is amazing. It’s both earthy and citrusy, a burst of orange on the back of the weed aroma. And the taste is just as good. As someone who is wary of most concentrates, I would buy this one again and again.

The high is incredibly pleasant; elevated in mind and body but not untethered. You won’t fully disassociate the way you would after a massive dab hit, but you’ll feel the effects. I have no hesitation in giving this 5/5.

How I use concentrates

As someone who doesn’t own a dab rig, I find other ways to use this concentrate. I love using it with my PAX 3, which is the only concentrate machine I own. But you don’t need a dag rig or concentrate vaporizer.

One of my favorite ways to use this live sauce is in my bong or my bubbler. I pack a base of flower in the bowl, usually CBD. Then I take a small amount of concentrate and place it in the center of the bowl. I cover it with a protective layer of more flower (sometimes CBD, sometimes THC) and light it as usual. If you’re trying this, my advice is to light a small section of the bowl at a time and take slow drags to allow the heat to fully permeate the concentrate, which has a much higher melting point than the flower.

I also like to use the concentrate when I’m rolling up. The same basic principle applies here – place a base layer of flower in your paper, add the concentrate, and cover with more flower. Your placement here matters – place the concentrate towards the front of the joint, but not at the very tip. You want some heat to build in the joint first, but you don’t want the concentrate so far back it’s all resin by the time you get there.

About Trade Roots

Trade Roots is a craft cannabis cultivator and dispensary in Wareham Mass. I visited during a van trip, and I was blown away from the moment I got inside. Behind the cash register is a wall of glass showcasing the grow room where plants wave happily under the fans. It’s a gorgeous site to know exactly where your weed is coming from. 

I got the chance to talk with Carl Giannone, the owner of Trade Roots. I asked him why he made this when 1:1 concentrates are so rare on the market. He shared it was a case of fortunate timing, having THC extract, CBD isolate, and a batch of terpenes on hand. When he saw the enthusiastic response from customers, he knew he was onto something.
