Cannabis oils are gaining popularity as more and more people are introduced to the great wide world of concentrates, and manufacturers are keeping up with new and creative ways to package them to consumers.
One such example of this is the the popular Oil Stix brand. Only available in Colorado to licensed medical marijuana red card holders, Oil Stix are made by the same company that produces the widely popular cannabis infused sodas – Keef Cola.
Oil Stix come in brightly colored, well-branded, sealed packages small enough to fit in your front pocket, and they are available in a variety of strains from Bubba Kush to Strawberry Cough.
The particular Oil Stix that I tried was a hybrid strain that came in a medical-like plastic syringe, which seemed odd at first but actually made for the perfect no-mess dabbing application. Most cannabis oils sold in syringes are used to refill vapor cartridges, but Oil Stix and the budtender at MMJ America’s downtown location made the great recommendation that these be dabbed.
Oil Stix are produced through ‘Supercritical CO2 extraction’ that uses low heat and pressure, allowing the integrity of the cannabinoids and flavor to remain intact through processing. Printed very clearly on the front of the package, the total THC content in the syringe was 765mg or 76.5%.
The viscosity of the oil when placed on a steel dabbing tool is similar to honey. When dabbed, the Oil Stix give off that signature sizzling sound that CO2 extracted oil does when it hits the nail. The hit was smooth and produced flavor notes reminiscent of a doughnut bakery.
Dabbing-perfection aside, Oil Stix also acts as the best application tool for twaxing joints.
