The thing to keep in mind is that resin is just tar, ash and burnt carbon that just so happens to have some THC trapped inside.
For those who were stoned over the weekend and may have missed the big, albeit not surprising, news: President Trump has decided to extend the social distancing guidelines until the end of April. It means we can expect another month of shutdowns, lockdowns and other semi-apocalyptic gobbledygook intended to prevent the spread of the nasty disease known as the coronavirus.
