Today we will take another look at Guild Extracts. I have previously enjoyed their live resin concentrates, pre-rolls, and cartridges from local dispensaries and delivery services such as Eaze in California. Guild Extracts currently offers cartridges, concentrates, THC-A infused pre-rolls, and Pax pods at most dispensaries throughout California. We recently reviewed their live resin here, but I was excited about their latest collaboration. For this review, I’ll be looking at the pros and cons of this Guild Extracts diamond sauce from Green Shock Farms.

Pros:

  • Excellent quality
  • Great taste
  • Very good potency
  • Affordable prices

Cons:

  • Slightly weaker than other diamond sauces

Recommendations: The diamond sauce could be more potent with stronger entourage effects.

This diamond sauce consists of small to medium-sized crystals in a thick layer of golden maple syrup-like sauce

This week, I picked up two diamond sauces from Guild Extracts, Tropical Sleigh Ride, and Purple Punch. Guild Extracts Tropical Sleigh Ride diamond sauce from Green Shock Farms is a multiple Top 3 Emerald Cup winner for categories like Best Sungrown Flower, Most Unique Terpene Profile, and Highest Terpenes. A two-time Emerald Cup award-winning strain, Tropical Sleigh Ride is a complex hybrid strain between Purple Candy Cane x (Pineapple x Hawaiian Haze). This strain tests uncommonly in ocimene, which is also found in mint, parsley, and orchids. This diamond sauce consists mostly of small to medium-sized white THC-A crystals swimming in a thick layer of golden maple syrup-like sauce. Even the sauce surrounding the diamonds had a nice pleasing consistency that was easy to handle as the thick sauce helps stick the diamonds onto the dab tool.

Just as tasty and smooth as Cannatique, Wonderbrett and Cali Stripe, tastier than Lemonnade 

The pungent candy-like aroma of Tropical Sleigh Ride is sweet, fruity, and floral with tangy notes of mango, peaches, guavas, papayas, lemons, oranges, and pineapple. The taste is just as irresistible as the aroma, like a sweet, floral and gassy tropical smoothie. Overall, this diamond sauce was just as tasty and smooth as Cannatique Blueberry Cruffin diamonds, Wonderbrett OZK x Papaya live diamond sauce, and Cali Stripe Tutti Frutti diamond sauce. However, it was somewhat tastier than the Lemonnade Lions Mane diamonds.

The effects of Tropical Sleigh Ride felt physically calming and mentally uplifting 

The effects of Tropical Sleigh Ride felt physically calming and mentally uplifting after some initial cerebral euphoria. This strain was perfect as a wake and bake as well as creatively stimulating during the afternoon. Its effects help with symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety, fatigue, and chronic pain. The THC-A % is 50.42%, THC % is 12.41% and the CBD % is 6.23%.

The effects of Purple Punch felt uplifting, relaxing, and euphoric

This week, I also picked up Guild Extracts Purple Punch diamond sauce. Purple Punch is an Indica dominant hybrid cross between Larry OG and Granddaddy Purple. The aroma of Purple Punch is sweet, fruity, and floral with hints of grape candy, blueberries, and tropical punch. The aroma of this Purple Punch diamond sauce is more pungent and saucier than the Tropical Sleigh Ride diamond sauce. The taste is also sweet and fruity with hints of blueberries, grapes, and vanilla. The effects of Purple Punch felt uplifting, relaxing, and euphoric. This strain was perfect for nighttime while Tropical Sleigh Ride was great for daytime. The THC-A % is 30.82%, THC % is 40.47% and the CBD % is 0.00%.

The potency of the Purple Punch diamond sauce felt stronger than Tropical Sleigh Ride

These live resin diamonds have a moderately high level of potency with a somewhat high level of CBD. However, its entourage effects felt somewhat weaker than Cannatique Blueberry Cruffin diamonds, Wonderbrett live diamond sauce, Cali Stripe diamond sauce, and Lemonnade Lions Mane diamonds. Overall, I also preferred the potency of the Purple Punch diamond sauce over the Tropical Sleigh Ride, although both diamond sauces are very tasty and smooth.

Far less pricey, yet not quite as potent as Cali Stripe, Wonderbrett, and Lemonnade

Guild Extracts diamond sauce is usually priced around $35-40, pre-tax. In my opinion, this diamond sauce is highly recommended for its taste, quality, and value. This diamond sauce is far less pricey, yet not quite as potent as the other live diamonds/diamond sauces from Cali Stripe, Wonderbrett, and Lemonnade. While the potency of this diamond sauce is somewhat lacking, the flavor is tasty and potent enough at a more reasonable price.
