Kris Lamont's Top 5

Kalya - Fresh Press Rosin

“I am just a fan of fresh press rosin,” explained Lamont. “I enjoy the work the cultivators and Kalya have to put in to produce those terps.”

Kalya Extracts rosin emerges as a distinguished, award-winning item, establishing a fresh benchmark within the industry. What distinguishes it is the distinctive extraction technique that employs fresh, uncured cannabis blossoms—departing from the conventional rosin sourced from dried flowers, kief, or hash. This inventive method yields an unparalleled experience, presenting a richer and more intricate flavor spectrum compared to other cannabis concentrates. Through the infusion of monoterpenes exclusively discovered in newly harvested cannabis, users can relish an elevated sensory expedition that is truly unparalleled.

Kalya - Rosin Rosin Sauce All In One Pen

Kalya Rosin Sauce All In One Pens utilize the new Omega XL hardware from Kung Fu Vapes. The latest in all in one vape pen technology, the Omega XL has an added switch on the bottom that provides a five second preheat when it is first turned on.

This action helps the oil soak into the all ceramic bucket with no wick underneath. This delivers fat flavorful rips every time. The new pen also offers improved airflow and a slicker design.

“The second version of these Kalya Rosin Sauce all in one pens that have come out are game changing,” Lamont testified. “In my opinion there isn't anything better. Best hardware, best taste, best high.”
