Arcana Island Pink THC Sauce (Indica)
Arcana Island Pink THC Sauce (Indica) is a cannabis extract with a sticky, liquid consistency. Sauce extractions are known for high levels of terpenes, which give them incredibly robust flavour profiles. Sauce is typically produced using a unique process designed to create a two-component final product: cannabinoid-rich crystals with high levels of THC suspended in terpene-rich oil.
Island Pink Strain: Island Pink Kush, also known simply as “Island Pink,” is an indica dominant hybrid strain (80% indica/20% sativa) created through crossing the delicious Pink Kush with another unknown indica hybrid strain. Known for its insanely gorgeous appearance, Island Pink Kush is perfect for any indica lover who appreciates a delicious flavour, too.
More about sauce:
Cannabis extracts are often named for their appearance, texture, colour, and malleability. This is why you’ll see extracts with names like shatter, badder, crumble, sugar, and oil.
Sauce is no different. This extract’s unique combination of crystals plus terp sauce gives it a viscous consistency similar to marmalade.
Beyond consistency, sauce is recognized for its isolated cannabinoids and high terpene content. Because the terpenes and cannabinoids have been separated from one another, they may not be evenly distributed throughout the final product. As a result, two different dabs from the same sauce may deliver two very different terpene and cannabinoid levels and thus two different experiences.
How does making sauce differ from other extracts?
The central goal of making sauce is to allow the major cannabinoids, especially THC, to crystallize and separate from the terpenes. This makes sauce quite different from other extracts.
While extracts like shatter, budder, or wax aim to keep cannabinoids and terps fully integrated and uniform in colour, texture, and potency, sauce exhibits varying levels of uniformity while still fulfilling its intended purpose — high potency and flavour.
The solvent removal process takes much longer with sauce than with other extracts. While making shatter typically involves purging most of the solvent in a closed-loop system and immediately placing the extract into a vacuum oven for 24 to 72 hours to remove all residual solvents, the process for making sauce can take anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks to complete. That’s because rather then purging out all solvent at once, sauce producers purposefully leave solvent in the mixture for a longer time, to allow THCA or CBDA compounds to crystallize.
