Lemon Heads Live Resin Badder from Tsunami Labs

The Lemon Heads live resin from Tsunami Labs is a beautiful yellow badder that is smooth, creamy, and bursting with sour citrus terps. The soft yet stable consistency makes it easy to dab or top on bowls, and the candied lemon flavors make it hard to put down. A flavorful dab that tops out at 65.57% THC with more than 6.27% total terpenes, its compelling flavors are led by an abundance of terpinolene, which clocks in around 4.5%.
