In recent years, the day of July 10th has become an illustrious stoner holiday where the focus is solely on cannabis concentrates. When looking at the date upside-down, 7/10 spells out OIL. With the onset of legalization down the West Coast, there has been the advent of both exotic cannabis strains and exotic cannabis concentrates.
There are so many different types of cannabis concentrates out there that reflect the extraction method used. To name a few: shatter, live resin, badder, rosin, sugar, wax, hash, and diamonds and sauce are all different types of concentrates you’ll find in legal states. What concentrates offer is a smoother cannabis consuming experience. There are also significantly fewer carcinogens than smoking flower with a lighter.
If you’re looking to indulge in some of the festivities of 7/10 on Friday, consider treating yourself, and don’t settle for mids. There are a bevy of exotic strains that you can get in cannabis concentrate form up and down the West Coast. We’ve put together a list of our ten favorite exotic cannabis concentrates spanning Washington, Oregon, and California.
The Strawberry Shortcake strain is a hitter from Jungle Boys that came from Cannarado. It’s the result of crossing White Wookies with The White. This fruity dessert strain has the potential to bring about crazy relaxing and euphorically uplifting effects. You can probably still find some of it in shatter form from Jungle Boys around California. If you’re in Oregon, Happy Cabbage Farms has a solventless Strawberry Shortcake rosin cart that sounds potent.
In the realm of finding a true sativa high, the Gelonade strain from Connected Cannabis Co. might be it. Tropical notes come rushing out from this strain that also has a sour lemon and orange zest. Connected is currently extracting a live resin sugar of this strain that looks absolutely delightful.
The Sunset Sherbet strain has come into immense popularity for its berry, citrus, and musky terps that might be utterly sedative. GSC and Pink Panties accidentally propagated to make this winner for Sherbinskis. Buddies Brand produces this strain in their Liquid Diamonds Live Resin cartridges, as well as their live resin dabs. Check their product locator to see where the nearest shop is that carries it because they produce this strain in multiple states! Buddies Brand is available in Washington, Oregon, and California.
The White Runtz strain is an official collaboration between Runtz and Cookies. It has all of your favorite Runtz characteristics, but with a much more insane trichome density. By crossing Runtz with The White, you end up with this potent offering that rappers absolutely love. Oleum in Washington got their hands on these genetics and made a very, very potent live resin with it. You can expect potentially enlivening highs from this strain that get you high as hell in a way that doesn’t sacrifice flavor.
Jet Fuel Gelato
Jet Fuel Gelato is a strain that’s been making low-key waves on the West Coast. By bringing together two legends, Gelato and Jet Fuel, you get a potently gassy and sweet earthy strain. Finding its way into the hands of many extractors up and down the West Coast, brands such as Echo Electuary, Buddies Brand, and Oleum are producing this strain outside of California.

The Chocolatina strain is one of the Exotic Genetix creations we reviewed for our West Coast Weed Tour. Skord did a phenomenal job at cultivating a cut of this flower, but Constellation Cannabis has taken it a step further with their extract. Earthy, sour, and rich, the Chocolatina strain is known for its immense flavor and potentially easy-going effects.
The Lava Cake strain has been gaining noticeable traction as cultivators are starting to put in on line-ups outside of California. Coming from Cookies genetics, the Lava Cake strain is incredibly smooth and showcases doughy, piney, and sour-sweet terps. STIIIZY, California’s flashiest weed brand, took to extracting it into their Curated Live Resin. This strain stacks up in flavor and effects to some of the most popular strains dominating the West Coast.
Look no further for one of the most decadent exotic cannabis concentrates you could pick up for 7/10. The Gelatti strain comes from crossing Biscotti with Gelato to great avail. Both bring palpable terpene profiles into this fruity, gassy, and pastry-like strain. Cookies is currently extracting solventless rosin of this strain that’s available for $120 a gram! Find out if it’s worth it this Friday by stopping by Dr. Greenthumb’s in Downtown LA.
One of the most talked-about strains by RMR staff in Washington, the Candy Rain strain looks and smells exotic. Brilliant purple, orange, and green coloration proliferate its surface with a liberal dousing of trichomes. Secret Gardens of Washington were responsible for the original drop of this strain in the state. Unsurprisingly, it’s gained enough popularity for them to extract it into live resin for our immense enjoyment.
The Ice Cream Cake strain is one of the more fire Gelato crosses out there. By combining Gelato with Wedding Cake you end up with this rich and gassy vanilla-smelling indica dominant hybrid. Sweet, creamy, and earthy flavors remain firmly intact with the exactions of it from Washington’s Cold Smoke and Dabstract. If you’re looking for the most luxurious experience, the Cold Smoke is a little pricier, but will definitely do the trick.
