Full Spectrum Honey Oil oz - Full album
Thick oil with a consistency similar to distillate. Strong smelling sweet terps with hops and spice that can also taste earthy and minty. Mostly smooth and melts clean with zero residues.
The heavy indica effects hit hard, droopy eyes and sleepy thoughts make any task difficult. A high dosage during the day is a recipe to become comatose for most of one. Roughly 50mg in a MCT oil tincture provides a noticeably stronger edible experience than 100mg of my THC distillate tinctures or edibles I've tried previously. Total cost of material to make a 450mg THC full spectrum MCT tincture was $12 where as OCS wants $80 for 400mg.
Honey oil is a versatile activated THC product that can be used in a variety of ways including vape carts and making edibles. I'm finding it to be an improvement over distilled THC oil of a similar cost, with better effects and flavour due its full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes. Recently restocked with a price drop so it’s below 18/g for the full jar.

Strawberry Cough 1g sample - Full album
Smells of sweet and musky strawberries with some extra leaf. Broke this up by hand and a surprising amount of sticky hand hash built up after just 1g. Light fruity taste in the smoke with some coughing and burned with a mostly grey ash. Notable hyrbid potency that strengthened over 20 minutes and had my eyes feeling sensitive to light.

Image
Glueberry 1g sample - Full album
Fruity, earthy, berry smell and caked with crystals. Flattened slightly but otherwise traveled well in its mylar bag and was ready to smoke smooth with a subtle earthy-berry flavour. Enjoyed sharing it in a joint with others and can't really judge potency for that reason.

Image
Platinum Cookies 1g sample - Full album
Sharp, sweet cookies smell which improved further after being jarred with a humidity pack. My grinder's out of commission so it got the rough, hand chop causing the ash to look darker than it might have but smoked clean and with smooth flavour. Best example of a cookies strain I've tasted and potency was on point providing strong hybrid effects that don't debilitate.

Image
Sour Lemon OG 1g sample - Full album
Mid level sour, earthy, lemon terpenes with dusty crystals on breakup and a more fluffy bud structure. Good humidity out of the bag and smoked smooth. I rolled 2x 0.5g pinners which had light and airy flavour despite their tiny size, unsure of potency for that reason.

Image
Jager 1g sample
Sharp and woody kush smell out of the bag. Has managed to escape being smoked for the time being.

Notes: Ordered a jar of honey oil from HSP in October. No faults with the product and the MoM went out of its way to provide good service. I had not requested any samples but they were added anyways.

How would you rate the strawberry cough? AAA+?
I think AAA+ would be fair. Loses marks for the extra leaf and less than white ash but otherwise high level of terps and potency.

How’d you make the tincture? I have some of this on the way
I'll copy what I posted just in case anyone misses it from the picture thread: Warm up 30ml of carrier oil (MCT, etc.) over a double boiler and add 1g of honey oil mixing until fully combined. Let the mixture cool down then funnel into amber glass dropper bottles to prevent light deterioration.

I was one of the "never feel edibles" types but basically just have a high tolerance and eating under dosed edibles and budget distillates lacking delta 9 THC. My original dosage attempt with this tincture was roughly 50mg and ended up as my first example of a relatively strong edible experience. Very enjoyable but still manageable high for 4-6 hours, I'd consider 100mg or so to be a large dose.

I thought it wasnt advised to make cartrigde with rso oil? maybe i am wrong =)
Cherry and honey oil are not RSO oil.
taken directly from hsp Made by dissolving cannabis in pure alcohol and can be administered orally or topically. This is a full plant extract which allows for a wide spectrum of cannabinoids availability in the concentrate. This is filtered to remove chlorophyll and plant lipids and waxes. Also known as RSO or Rick Simpson Oil and is thought to treat cancers and skin disorders

Always worth researching before buying any product. What I found is that RSO wouldn't make for a good smoking experience due to the impurities inside and is typically around 50-60% cannabinoids.

Honey oil has been filtered and dewaxed so impurities are removed leaving 91% cannabinoids with no solvents detected as per the lab results. I'm finding it to burn clean and vaporize without residues similar to 90% THC distillate.

Above the definition of RSO is the extractor's product description:
Oro Pure is a full spectrum Cannabis oil derived from our pesticide free single strain grown outdoors in the beautiful mountains of British Columbia. Because its made from a single source strain in large batches that means perfect consistency in every dose. Our sun grown plants enjoy a life that a cannabis plant should, consuming mountain waters, fresh air, natural negative ions and real sunlight. We also use all the buds from the very top to the bottom, that means AAAA top nugs down to the smalls. This produces an exceptional product and unique terpene profile that is reflected in the clean, potent burn.

Hey how do you get the oil in your vape carts? I filled mine a little bit but it sticks to the side and doesn’t seem to get down to the coil. Regular 510 ccells.
Might need to add more oil if it's not enough to cover the bottom portion and then it give it time to settle. Speed up the process by increasing the temperature, usually warming the cart in my hand would be enough but you could also use a hair dryer or plastic bag and warm water. When filling a fresh coil I wait a few hours after the oil has settled at the bottom to allow time for the feeder holes to soak in and prevent dry firing.
