MK Ultra is a famously potent indica strain which was created by crossing two heavyweight strains: OG Kush and G-13. It was first bred by Amsterdam seed bank THSeeds, and named after CIA experiments that were conducted during the 1950’s. During these experiments, humans were used as lab subjects to develop drugs to aid with interrogation.
The terpene profile is characteristic of strong indica strains: earthy, piney, and full of gassy fuel, with a sweet vanilla finish.

What is Live Resin?
Live resin is one of the highest quality cannabis extracts you can buy. It is one of of the most flavourful and potent extracts available to us. Is it created using BHO or PHO methods, which means the high pressures of the solvents are what separates the plant material from the good stuff: trichomes and terpenes.
How is it different than shatter?
But what makes it different than shatter, wax, budder, saps, and all the other BHO and PHO extracts? The biggest difference is the timing of the extraction. Shatter and other solvent extracts are done from dried and cured flower, and the timing of the crop is not taken into account at all.
Timing is everything.
With live resin, speed and timing are everything. Once the cultivator decides to cut down the crop, the extractor works quickly, performing the extraction techniques within minutes of the plant being cut down. The result is a massive difference in terpene content.
Terpenes are precious
Some terpenes are more volatile and unstable than others. The moment the plant is cut down, terpenes begin to evaporate off the plant, some more quickly than others. Some terpenes, like Caryophyllene, which smells of rosemary, cloves and hops, evaporates extremely quickly. Others like myrcene (earthy, piney kush flavours) stick around for long time. By performing the extraction technique quickly, the extractor is able to hold onto these terpenes before they are lost. The result is a magnificently tasty extract.
