Heute morgen scrollte in meinen Tweeties die wunderwunderschöne 3 Kilo-Kugel aus Haschisch-Öl im Bild unten rechts vorbei. Kurz recherchiert: Die Teile kommen aus den X-Tracted Labs in Seattle und deren Instagrams sind voll mit den Dingern. It's a thing and I'm in love.
Aus einem 2016er Artikel über die Bude:
As the artist held his orb up to the sky, you might sooner guess that we were touring Saruman’s tower in Middle Earth than an extraction facility in Seattle. But this globe is no crystal ball or palantir – it’s 3,000 grams of pure cannabis extract measuring up to a staggering 99% THC. Its creators at X-tracted Labs call them Dragon Balls (like in the popular manga, and I can only imagine that collecting seven of these would get you high enough to think you’ve summoned Shenron), and beholding them in-person is somewhat of a religious experience for any connoisseurs of oil.
Starting as a hydrocarbon, the concentrate – known as “The Clear” – is made using a careful extraction process that strips everything from the cannabis plant except its essential compounds known as cannabinoids. Journeying through chambers, coils, and glass beakers, the final product gathers in a round glass container like a thick, golden potion.
