Overall Extract Quality
Previously, I had reviewed the West Coast Cure hash rosin, specifically their Garlic Budder. Their Garlic Badder was just as tasty and potent as their Cookies n Cream, Tropical Storm, and Strawberry Blondie. I also especially enjoyed Strawberry Bananza, their collaboration with Kayla Extracts, which was released earlier this year. They currently offer both hash rosin and fresh press live rosin for their selection of rosins. When the source plant material is put into ice water, it is then squished to make fresh press live rosin. For this review, I will look at West Coast Cure Papaya fresh press live rosin.
- Excellent taste
- Great potency
- Very smooth
- Great entourage effects
Quality is similar to Kalya Extracts
This week, I picked up their new Papaya strain which is an Indica hybrid crossing Citral #13 and Ice #2. By looks, it looks very similar to their Strawberry Bananza, where the consistency of the fresh press is usually very sticky and somewhat trickier to handle than hash rosin and/or cold cure. Its crystal clarity, smoothness, and consistency is similar to some of the live rosin from Kalya Extracts.
Papaya tastes like a tropical mojito
Immediately, it has a sweet, herbal, floral, and minty aroma with tropical hints of mangos, papayas, kiwis, and melons, which smells like a tropical mojito. The taste is even sweeter and smoother than the aroma, like their Strawberry Bananza in collaboration with Kalya Extracts. Both of their fresh press live rosin that has more of a sweet, candied taste than their more floral and earthier hash rosin.
Papaya feels slightly better in taste and smoothness than their hash rosin
In my opinion, I prefer the hash rosin over the fresh press because their hash rosin is easier to handle and less stickier than their fresh press live rosin. Although I prefer the taste of the fresh press live rosin over the hash rosin for West Coast Cure, the West Coast Cure hash rosin felt slightly more potent, euphoric, and relaxing than their fresh press live rosin, which I would still highly recommend. However, Papaya feels slightly better in taste and smoothness than their other hash rosin.
Feeling Frosty still has the best quality, taste, and potency for live rosin
The effects of Papaya fresh press feel calm, relaxing, and drowsy as I felt an immediate rush of cerebral euphoria. However, it knocked me out in a restful sleep as time wore on. Strawberry Bananza felt similarly strong entourage effects as this Papaya fresh press. Although this one was tasty and potent, Feeling Frosty still has the best quality, taste, and potency for live rosin.
West Coast Cure hash rosin feels more potent than their fresh press
Overall, I may slightly prefer West Coast Cure hash rosin over their fresh press live rosin in terms of potency. I particularly enjoyed their Cookies and Cream, Tropical Storm, and Strawberry Blondie from their selection of hash rosin. Cookie And Cream was arguably the most potent one I’ve had from their entire menu of live and hash rosin so far.
West Coast Cure Fresh Press is expensive, but worth the price
West Coast Cure fresh press live rosin is priced slightly higher than their hash rosin, depending on where you look. In my opinion, I would recommend the fresh press live rosin, but I still would recommend their hash rosin, which felt stronger and better in its entourage effects. Overall, I would recommend the fresh press live rosin from West Coast Cure for its taste, quality, and smoothness and their hash rosin for its higher potency and stronger entourage effects.

West Coast Cure hash rosin has the best potency, the fresh press has the best taste
In conclusion, I would recommend both the fresh press live rosin and hash rosin from West Coast Cure. Although I would give the edge towards the hash rosin, the fresh press live rosin is also highly recommended for its taste, quality, and smoothness. Whether you enjoy fresh press or cold cure, this is a highly underrated brand for their selection of live rosin. Most West Coast Cure products are currently available in most dispensaries throughout California.
