Information

Crater Lake is an evenly balanced hybrid (50% sativa/50% indica) strain created through a dank cross of the powerful Super Silver Haze X (Oregon Huckleberry X Blueberry X Oregon Huckleberry) strains. This bud is infamous for its potent stench that can be too much for some. It has a skunky pungent overtone with a tinge of earthy rotting fruit that is slightly peppery. The taste is slightly mellower, with a harsh spicy coffee flavor that has a slight pungency to it upon exhale. Crater Lake buds have lumpy medium-sized spade-shaped nugs with dark amber hairs and a thick covering of long twisty dark leaves. Each nug is completely coated in a frosty thick layer of tiny white crystal trichomes and visible droplets of sweet sticky resin. The Crater Lake high is just as infamous as its flavor – it has a relaxing and euphoric effect that is very well balanced among head and body highs. It starts with an uplifting blissful head high that leaves you clear-headed and focused with a sense of motivation and a slight increase in energy. This is eventually accompanied by a relaxing body buzz that builds slowly, spreading from the neck and back of the head in mellow waves, leaving you completely at ease with a slight sense of laziness. This body buzz will make you incredibly hungry, too, so be sure to have snacks on hand! These effects and its moderately high 15-17% THC level make Crater Lake perfect for treating conditions such as appetite loss, asthma, nausea, and mild to moderate cases of depression.

About Lake

If you’ve ever been to Crater Lake in Oregon then you understand just how beautiful and serene this part of the country can be. Taking attributes from the landmark itself, this strain of the same name brings you as much joy and relaxation as you’d get from a Pacific NW vacation. Bred by Dynasty Seeds, this bud is an interesting cross between Super Silver Haze and Oregon Huckleberry that’s first been crossed with a Blueberry and Oregon Huckleberry pairing.

Certainly on the more mild side of modern day cannabis, Crater Lake tops out at 17% THC. These nugs are quite lumpy and feature very dark hairs and leaves, but these attributes are contrasted by a bright coating of small crystals and drops of super sticky resin. While newer smokers may be inclined to try this strain, its smells and flavors take a bit of a more seasoned palate. Aromas include skunk and a note of pepper that’s accented by rotting fruit. Her flavor is a bit more subdued but features spicy coffee that may cause you to cough upon exhaling.

Some hybrid strains won’t really exhibit much of a variety in effects, but Crater Lake takes you on a true roller-coaster of a high. Users will start with a burst of energy that fuels their creative juices, and along with the tendency to chat it up with anyone nearby, can make for a great way to get out of your shell. The final hours at work could benefit from this bud as well as an evening party, but be aware of what comes next. As your high continues, you’ll be taken to the depths of relaxation, and as tingles envelop your body, you may become so couch-locked that you fall asleep.

As long as you know what to expect, you can use this strain to its full advantage when dealing with medical conditions. Both depression and stress will be soothed during the beginning stages, allowing joy to shine through and brighten up any dark mood. Pain and inflammation also tend to be served quite well by Crater Lake, and since the strain often imparts a pretty strong case of the munchies, those with appetite problems will reach for her time and time again.

Growing Crater Lake can be a bit of a complicated endeavor, as only clones are available at this time. You may end up with one of three phenotypes, resulting in varying scents and growing patterns. In general, she’s a fairly easy plant to take care of and does well inside or outdoors. Only 8 to 9 weeks of flowering will result in a decently sized harvest.

Residents of Oregon have no doubt fallen in love with Crater Lake, but if you live anywhere else, you may never get a chance to sample this bud. Those who do try it should be mindful of their own tolerance and time their dose accordingly.

Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream is a sativa-leaning strain with effects that may reduce pain and increase energy. Tangerine Dream (from the illustrious Barney’s Farm) is a cross of G13, Afghani, and Neville’s A5 Haze. Consuming too much Tangerine Dream may leave you stuck in the couch, as this strain was crafted to meet the demands of medical patients. Uplifting and euphoric, it provides consumers with mental clarity while deeply relaxing muscles. Tangerine Dream typically flowers in 8 to 10 weeks and features a citrusy aroma.

You have hits and misses when buying new weed. Lately, I’ve had a lot of misses. The weed itself has been fine, but my reaction to it — slow, groggy and despondent — has not been. Maybe this is a by-product of limiting myself to pre-orders out of ’rona fear and not engaging with budtenders before making my purchase (not that we’re allowed to smell before we buy now anyway), or maybe my body is just changing; lord knows the shape of it has.

Being the cheapskate that I am, though, an in-store-only sale was the only thing that was going to drag me inside a dispensary. And that’s when I thought I’d found my dream strain for curing my weed woes.

Initially presented with a lineup of potent OGs and Cookies varieties, I asked the budtender for something that was more on the straight-and-narrow path for daytime use but still flush in the flavor department. She pulled out something from the corner with the name Tangerine Dream. Although she wasn’t very enthusiastic while describing it as a “light high,” the mild potency was exactly what I was looking for. But as the world always proves, few of us ever get to live out our dreams.

About Tangerine

Are you a citrus lover that appreciates good cannabis when you see it? If so, Tangerine will be right up your alley. This strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid that’s a four-time backcross of Ch9 Aroma. Creators at Ch9 Female Seeds have done a fine job of keeping this strain’s data a mystery, as not much is known about its exact ratio or common THC levels. Taking a chance on Tangerine, however, will probably pay off handsomely regardless of its numbers.

What has been determined is that Tangerine’s THC level can rise as high as 18%, although an average testing range is not publicized. Users instead focus on this strain’s insane smell and flavor profile, that will make you think you’ve been transported to the citrus groves of Florida. Orange, mango, and pineapple fragrances all blend together for a scent that will make your mouth water, and these same tastes will stick around long after you exhale. Nugs of Tangerine are bright green and boast an intensely thick layer of sandy trichomes.

Tangerine is a great daytime choice for new or experienced users, as you’ll enjoy a plethora of effects that all leave you fully functional. Initially a head high will result in strong feelings of happiness and incredible amounts of energy. While this can sometimes make people feel jittery or experience anxiety, your high will be smooth and enjoyable. As you shift into the indica effects, your body will become more relaxed without any sense of sleepiness.

Boasting a rather high CBD amount of 2%, Tangerine is a medical patient’s dream come true. Since it’s great for any time of day, try using it to relieve stress at the office or as a daily smoke to get through a depressing stretch of life – we all have them. Those with chronic body pain, inflammation, or migraines will appreciate the way that this strain takes the edge off and can make you more functional. Some patients find that the relaxing benefits of its indica side can help them achieve a great night of sleep as well.

Again, limited data makes it tough to give exact recommendations if you’re trying to grow Tangerine at home. What is known, however, is that she will do well either indoors or outside, and with a 7 to 8 week flowering time, there probably isn’t anything overly nuanced to worry about.

Keep some Tangerine handy the next time you want to taste the best bud of your life. It could become your new daily favorite, or you may reserve it for special occasions where you want to have a carefree and energetic day.

Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica

THC: 22%, CBD: 2%

Tangerine is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through a four times backcross of the infamous CR9 strain. This tasty bud is infamous for its aroma, which is said to be identical to a walk through an orange grove just after it’s rained. The taste is just as sweet, with a zesty citrus flavor that has a sweet surprisingly tropical aftertaste upon exhale that lingers long after you finish smoking. Tangerine buds have long leafy and airy pepper-shaped bright lime green nugs with fiery orange hairs and a frosty thick coating of sandy fine crystal white trichomes. The Tangerine high is just as pleasant as the taste and is perfect for a daytime smoke when you need energy without the anxiety that sometimes comes. You’ll be hit with a strong euphoric onset that leaves you giggly and insanely energized almost immediately after smoking. This is followed by a deep happy relaxation felt in the mind and body that aren’t sedative in the least bit, but rather rids both of any pain or tension. Due to these powerful effects and its high average CBD level of 2% and THC level of up to 18%, Tangerine is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic pain, inflammation, mild to moderate cases of depression, muscle spasms or tremors, and chronic anxiety or stress

Tangerine dream: High times cannabis cup winnerz

To say Tangerine Dream is a well known strain would be an understatement, it is probably fair to say that the strain is worthy of legendary status within the cannabis world. Tangerine Dream is easy to grow and features large amounts of THC complemented by a minor CBD percentage. The strain is indica dominant and features 70 percent indica genetics alongside 30 percent sativa genetics.

The parent strains that were crossbred to create Tangerine Dream were G13, Neville’s A-5 Haze and Afghan. The strain has proved its worth in the past and won a first place award in the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2010.

The massive THC content within the flowers of Tangerine Dream provides a fast acting and potent high, featuring the best aspects of the indica and sativa merging. Taking a hit of this strain will initiate a flurry of positive and comforting sensations that will uplift and energise the smoker resulting in a euphoric head space.

tangerine dream weed pics

The high derived from Tangerine Dream is defined largely by sativa qualities that generate a cerebral bake, resulting in exhilaration and bordering on the psychedelic. The indica elements of this high target the body and result in a calming and pain numbing couch lock that might leave you feeling a lot more hungry than you usually do when sober.

Tangerine Dream features complex layers of flavours that stimulate the taste buds and pleasure the smoker. Tangerine, orange, sour, spicy, fruity, sweet and apple flavours really stand out. When it comes to scent, Tangerine does not disappoint with citrus, spicy, and fruit smells.

Tangerine Dream maintains a regular height and will grow up to around 120 cm whether grown indoors or outdoors. If growing the strain outdoors in a garden bed or potting set up, expect to harvest around the end of October. The flowering times of Tangerine Dream is usually spread over 70 to 80 days. The THC content of these flowers is pretty massive at around 25 percent. The CBD content isn’t massive, but still complements to the cannabinoid content of the strain at 1.8 percent.

Tangerine Dream Experience

Perhaps slightly Sativa-dominant, this marijuana strain cultivates a calm mental uplift. You’ll be happy, smiling, and feeling a little silly. The euphoric head high is coupled with a deep body relaxation. Pain melts away and is replaced by a pleasurable slow, heavy sensation.

This flower is perfect for a lazy afternoon or a pre-dinner treat. It’s likely to stimulate your appetite and inspire some interesting dinner table conversations. Mid-way through the experience, you might find yourself ready to chill out and watch a movie.

Marijuana fans can enjoy this strain in a number of different ways, including;

  • Tangerine Dream Oil Pens are available from brands such as K.I.N.D. Concentrates, Canna Hemp, and Craft Cannabis.
  • Tangerine Dream shatter, Tangerine Dream wax, and other Tangerine Dream concentrates are also available from a number of retailers.

Type of High

Tangerine Dream marijuana induces uplifting cerebral euphoria, energizes body and mind, prompts laughter. Followed by deep body relaxation and couchlock. Controls pain, promotes sleep, stimulates appetite. May cause paranoia.

How to smoke Thai Stick

A Thai stick is an ancient form of a cannabis “cigar” deriving from Thailand, most popular in the United States in the 1970s. A Thai stick typically consists of cured flower skewered on a bamboo stick, wrapped in fan leaves and tied together with hemp string. 

how to smoke thai stick

In the modern age of cannabis legalization and product innovation, the luxury blunt or cannabis cigar has become a more prominent dispensary item in legal regions. But the modern canna-cigar’s precursor, the Thai stick, is of ancient origin, and its basic form has barely changed since the days of its inception. 

The construction of a Thai stick is, at its core, fairly simple and straightforward, though the smoking experience it provides may contrast significantly with that of a traditional joint or blunt. 

Most cannabis users will be familiar with the essential elements — long stocks of cured cannabis colas skewered or pressed around a bamboo stick, then wrapped in fan leaves. The Thai stick may also possibly be dipped in concentrate and/or sprinkled with kief. When the bamboo stick at the center is removed for smoking, the remaining hole in the center allows for sufficient airflow to properly burn the pressed flower, oil, and leaf wrap. 

Cannabis and its consumption is a pretty simple industry. It hasn’t lost or gained much since its use was first mentioned in writing by Chinese emperor Shen Nung in 2753 B.C.E. That’s because all you really need is the weed itself and a flame with which to burn it. Easy, right? Of course, cannabis consumption can also be as elaborate as the legendary thai sticks on which this article is based. The nice thing about marijuana is that the process is pretty much entirely up to you. Simple or complicated—the choice is yours.

Down through the years, new methods for consuming cannabis have been added to the standard repertoire. As the use of cannabis spread, the bong and the joint became the go-to ways to unleash the high that cannabis contains. More recently, dabbing  and vaping have grown in popularity. But between the bong and dabbing, there really isn’t that much to talk about.

History of Thai sticks

Thai Sticks are an ancient creation of the hill tribes from northeast Thailand, though the exact timeframe of its origin remains unknown. It wasn’t until the 1960s and ’70s that the Thai stick made its way to the U.S. when American surfers and Vietnam War veterans started taking trips to Thailand and smuggling Thai sticks (possibly dipped in opium at times) into to the country. 

The supply chain through which Thai sticks were smuggled to the U.S. fizzled out in the 1980s, and it wasn’t until the current boom of the legalization market that these ancient canna-cigars made a comeback. Most online sources trace the modern Thai stick movement back to a mysterious cannabis connoisseur known as afgoohead on Instagram. 

Afgoo head was reportedly the first to bring the Thai stick method into the modern age by crafting a variety of cannabis cigars that followed the same pattern. His modern Thai sticks eventually caught the attention of other aspiring cannabis cigar makers such as Roger Hinkley and Nathan Zeeb, co-founders of Artisan Kanna Cigars, who would then take the Thai stick concept and recraft it to make modern canna-cigars for the modern cannabis connoisseur.

How Do You Make a Thai Stick?

First, take your bud and skewer it with a bamboo stick, kebab-style. Long before Americans got their hands on Thai Sticks, it’s believed that the bamboo skewers were dipped in opium, which obviously launched smokers into a wild high. Today, however, hash oil or sugar water is used to coat the skewer, helping the seedless nugs mold around the stick. The choice between using hash oil or sugar water depends on how high the smoker wants to get.

Once the cannabis secures tightly around the stick, the buds are then wrapped in plant material, tied with hemp wick, and vacuum-sealed to cure. Most smokers choose to wrap their Thai Sticks in leaves from the marijuana plant, similar to the way Southeast Asian cuisine uses banana leaves to wrap certain dishes. In other words, you can tailor your Thai Stick to your preferred method of smoking.

What You’ll Need

  1. Nugs of your favorite strain.
  2. Small bamboo stick or plant stem (chopsticks work great too).
  3. Hemp string
  4. Hash oil (can substitute with sugar water)
  5. Washed leaves from a growing MJ plant (picked after step 2)
  6. Parchment paper

Step 1

First, separate the fluffiest buds from the rest of your stash. The fluffier the nugs the better because they are easier to pack and compress in the next step.

You might think you should go for the densest buds you can find in order to make things more intense. Wrong! Really dense buds can make the smoke too harsh. No one wants that.

Step 2

Coat the stick of your choice with hash oil or sugar water to make it slightly sticky.  We like bamboo skewers because they come in various sizes, have a point (which can be useful at various stages), and don’t change widths from end to end. You could also use metal skewers in a pinch.

Chopsticks work well, but they often get bigger toward the top which can make your Thai Stick look weird. I know, “Who cares how it looks,” right? But presentation is an important part of every smoking experience.

Once you’ve chosen your stick and coated it with hash oil or sugar water, bind the buds to the stick using the hemp string. At the end of this step, your Thai Stick should look something like this.

Step 3

When you’ve completed step 2, you’ve ready for the most difficult part of this whole process:  waiting. Thai Sticks take a long time to produce and you’ll be waiting at least a day at various points during production so get used to it now.

Before you start twiddling your thumbs, wrap the “cigar”–stick, bud, and hemp string–in parchment paper and store in the refrigerator for a few days or until the nugs solidify into one piece.

Step 4

When a few days have passed, or when you just can’t stand it any longer, carefully unwrap the hemp string from the stick. This is where the coating of hash oil or sugar water comes in handy. If you didn’t use enough, the buds will fall off the stick when you unwrap the string. That’s why it’s better to err on the side of caution and use just a bit more.

Step 5

After you’ve removed the hemp string, coat the bud stick with a light layer of hash oil or sugar water and then wrap the whole thing in the washed leaves from a growing MJ plant.

how to smoke thai stick

At this point, some Thai Stick producers suggest that you re-wrap the string and replace the whole thing in the refrigerator for twenty-four hours. That’s certainly an option, but, ultimately, you’re going to need to wrap the Thai Stick in three layers of washed leaves. That means an extra three days of waiting.

To speed things up, after you’ve applied the first layer of leaves, add another coating of hash oil or sugar water. Then, apply a second layer of leaves. Repeat this process one more time for a total of three layers of cannabis leaves.

Step 6

Regardless of how many leaf layers you apply, rewrap the stick in parchment paper and warm it on a hot plate or in a pan for a few seconds. This step warms the oil and allows it to spread under the leaves and permeate the bud. It also helps make a perfect seal between the layers of leaves.

Step 7

When you’ve finished heating the stick, rewrap the cigar in the hemp string and parchment paper, place it in the refrigerator, and let it cure in the low temperatures.

How to smoke a Thai stick

Thai sticks and canna-cigars may burn as slow as a quarter-inch per hour. They should be smoked in a similar fashion to a cigar, only with more inhale once the end is sufficiently lit. Using a torch may provide the optimal lighting, though Thai sticks can also be lit with a lighter or hempwick. Once the entire end is glowing red, you can start to inhale. Don’t inhale while lighting because you’ll essentially be inhaling the flame through the hole in the middle. 

Modern Thai sticks

What’s the difference between the traditional Thai stick and a modern-day canna-cigar? In short, not much. Whether you’ve seen them in a dispensary and seen them labeled as cannabis cigars, canna-cigars, or cannabis caviar, you’re likely looking at some variation of the Thai stick. Rather than coat the Thai stick in opium, as the original creators might have done, most modern Thai stick makers opt for coating the cigar in high-quality concentrates and/or kief.

Thai Strain

Thai Strain

Thai refers to a cannabis variety that grows natively in Thailand and was brought to the U.S. in the 70s and 80s. This pure sativa landrace is sometimes called “Thai Sticks” because of the way its buds are traditionally dried and tied into long sticks. This original Thai variety has given rise to many strains we commonly see on the market today, including Voodoo, Juicy Fruit, and the classic Haze. Thai induces powerful but comfortable effects and has a distinct fruity, citrus aroma. This strain is a challenge for growers outside tropical climates, but greenhouse gardens make this grow possible for experts patient enough for Thai’s long growth cycle and slow flowering.

An iconic landrace strain

Thai, also referred to as ‘Thai Sticks’, is an example of a landrace strain, meaning she has evolved in her natural environment away from the hands of man. Nature has cultivated this strain within Thailand for a long time, and the result is a 100% pure sativa variety.

Pioneers within the cannabis industry discovered this variety and brought it over to the US in the 1970s. These pristine landrace genetics were used to set the foundations for many iconic strains such as Northern Lights, AK-47, original Haze, Grapefruit, Chocolope and many more.

The buds of Thai weed are fluffy and contain a THC % of around 20%. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on Thai, she offers a clear headed high defined by cerebral, uplifting and euphoric sensations. Thai flowers give off pleasant smells and flavors of earthiness, woody and chocolate with a citrus/fuel aftertaste.

thai

Growing Thai weed is not an easy thing to do. Thai is best suited to outdoor growth within tropical climates, although expert growers may be able to obtain good results in greenhouses. As often with pure sativas the flowering period of Thai can take forever. 14-16 weeks is quite common for these tropical gifts of nature, but even flowering times up to 20 weeks have been reported.

You also have to take her size in consideration; a fully mature Thai landrace strain is more a tree than a plant.

Thai Experience

Thai is a landrace Sativa that has contributed to the creation of many contemporary marijuana strains. This strain is to Sativas what Afghani is to Indicas. Go back far enough in any strain’s history, like Haze or AK-47, and you’re likely to see this legendary marijuana in there somewhere.

“Thai” lineage may actually refer to a collection of cannabis strains native to Thailand and the surrounding region, rather than just one strain alone. Yet, finding a flower labeled “Thai” is still quite common.

About Thai

Thai is a pure sativa landrace native to the tropical jungles of Thailand. With a potency earned through centuries of isolated breeding, this strain has a famous pungency and an intense cerebral high. Also called Thai stick for its traditional preparation of leaves twisted around the plant’s spindly branches, Thai is said to have been brought to the U.S. from Southeast Asia following the Vietnam War. THC content varies but can be as high as 22%.

Cured Thai flowers look less like buds or nugs, instead forming wispy, fluffy clusters of leaves. They are pale green to brown and very resinous. The smell is primarily fruit and citrus with a distinct diesel undertone. Broken open or burned, the buds have a more bitter odor. The smoke has an acrid taste and is harsher than most sativas – coughing and lung expansion are common. When exhaled, smoke has light herbal and floral notes.

thai

As with potent Jamaican landraces across the Pacific, Thai has a speedy head high. Users describe a euphoria that comes on quickly and lasts longer than average. Physical effects tend to manifest more as an increase in energy that can border on a jumpy caffeine buzz for some. The clearheaded and motivating high from this strain is well-suited to daytime productivity. However, because of its high THC content, the cerebral effects may make less experienced users edgy or paranoid.

Because it is endemic to a tropical climate, Thai is difficult to cultivate outdoors in more temperate environments. Indoor growing can also be a challenge, as plants can reach almost 15 feet at maturity. Commercial growers have had success with large-scale indoor greenhouse operations. Thai has an extremely long flowering time – buds are ready for harvest in December if grown outdoors and after four and half months indoors.

Thai Strain: Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance

Aroma: The aroma of raw Thai marijuana strains has been described by many as being herbaceous, earthy, spicy, and woody. Sometimes, you can get undertones of pine and a sweet candy smell as well.

Flavor: When smoking Thai strains, you may notice a pungent, diesel-like flavor as well as a woody and earthy taste. Since it is a landrace there will be significant differences in flavor and aroma between plants.

Appearance: Thai strains don’t look like your typical cannabis plants; they have a lot longer, wispy sort of leaves and they don’t really form buds or nugs on their branches as well. They are often light green in color with streaks of brown popping up in between the leaves.

Traits of Thai and Thai Seeds

Some critics argue that the original strain is long gone. While the strain is still spotted in dispensaries and coffee shops, many feel that this is a contemporary version that has been influenced by hybridized genetics.

Regardless, the Thai commonly found is an earthy bud. Hints of citrus and a spicy sweetness hit your tongue on first taste, followed by something more akin to a musky forest. Marijuana connoisseurs will enjoy the spicy aroma that they doubtless experienced in some of this strain’s many offspring. With a smoke harsher than many other Sativa’s, new and experienced cannabis consumers can expect to cough a little when smoking this strain.

As a pure Sativa, this strain represents the essence of stimulating, head-centered cannabis. This strain is energizing, with plenty of psychoactivity to boot. For a landrace, the THC levels of Thai can get quite high. Levels range from 14 to 24% depending on growth conditions.

A racy strain, this strain can be a little too active for those who struggle with cannabis-induced anxiety. Some consumers find that this strain is nearly psychedelic, as it produces a strong sensation of blissful euphoria.

Medical Benefits of Thai

The clear-headed effects of this strain make it a nice option for medical marijuana patients to use during the day to control a number of symptoms.

  • Medical consumers tend to like this strain when treating depression, fatigue, and chronic stress
  • Those with headaches or migraines might appreciate the heady high this strain provides
  • Inflammatory conditions and eye pressure may also benefit from this strain.
Jerry OG Strain

Jerry OG Strain Review

Jerry OG is a sativa-dominant hybrid cross between Jack Herer, a cerebral sativa, and Larry OG, a relaxing indica-dominant hybrid. Like Larry OG, Jerry OG was first propagated in Orange County, California, where it quickly gained recognition for its energizing and focusing high and powerful pain-relieving body effects.

This combination of uplifting mental effects and physical relaxation makes excellent medicine for the treatment of many chronic conditions, including chronic pain, PMS, muscle cramps and asthma. The cerebral effect is energetic, creative and focusing, making it an ideal strain for managing symptoms of depression or anxiety while at work or on the go. Ultimately, Jerry OG is top-tier for its powerful physical relief that won’t cause you to crash around midday, as you would with other strains with indica-dominant pain-relieving effects.

jerry app review

Jerry OG tends to grow tall and gangly like an average sativa. Her water leaves are a dark shade of forest green while her stalks are often lighter. She tends to grow a decent yield of dense, spongy popcorn flowers that stand out among the foliage in shades of lime and dark green. Jerry OG flowers are covered in silvery-white trichomes that give the buds a bit of an alien appearance. Her pistils are sandy brown or orange in color and curl out from the calyxes in all directions.

On the plant, Jerry OG flowers smell sweet and floral. When dried, they take on a sweet and earthy aroma of pine needles and spice. The smell is loud enough to envelop a room when the jar is cracked open. On a deep inhale, Jerry OG opens up into sweet, citrusy fruit flavors. The smoke is a little peppery, so it’s likely to make you cough a bit before the exhale. On the exhale, Jerry OG leaves you with a lasting hoppy herbal flavor and piney aftertaste. All in all, Jerry OG is a sweet and sour masterpiece that offers a great mix of effects that can help you keep your pain manageable without sacrificing your energy or creativity. If you see it at your favorite dispensary, it’s definitely worth a try. 

Jerry OG Lineage 

Jerry OG is an Orange County classic best known for its energy-inducing, clear mental high and deep rooted physical relief. It’s a sativa-dominant cross between two west-coast classics: Jack Herer, a potent sativa, and Larry OG, which is a hybrid cross between OG Kush and SFV OG. In the years since it was first propagated, the strain has made its way into dispensaries all over the country, boasting potencies upwards of 20% to 25% THC.

Jerry OG Appearance

Jerry OG is a beautiful, classic cannabis strain. She grows tall and stalky in standard sativa-dominant fashion, displaying skinny dark green water leaves and lighter-colored stalks. She offers a medium-sized yield of broad, spongy flowers that take on an alien appearance thanks to the presence of THC-laden trichomes that coat the flowers in a light silvery blanket. When the flowers dry and break away from the main colas, they take on a sagey lime green appearance with dark green sugar leaves. Each one is covered in sandy brown and amber orange pistils that curl out from the calyxes in all directions.

Jerry OG Aromas 

On the living plant, Jerry OG flowers are floral and sweet with distinct notes of OG Kush family funk and a warm spicy herbaceousness. When the flowers are cured and dried, they take hold on to that spicy kush scent. However when they’re ground up or broken apart, they open up into a sweet, citrusy and herbal scent reminiscent of pine needles.

Jerry OG Flavors

The smells translate well into the flavor profile of Jerry OG. Once ground, packed into a bowl, and lit, the initial impression is that of sweet citrus and spice. The smoke itself is quite peppery and spicy, similar to the flavors of many other kush-family strains. However, the strains true colors come out upon the exhale. Once the strain exits the body, it leaves a uniquely sweet and herbal flavor on the tongue with distinct notes of sweet citrus, sour lemon and earth, and and herbal pine flavor. The flavor can be described as a sweet and sour tango for the tongue.

Jerry OG Effects 

The unique scents and flavors of Jerry OG translate well into its effects thanks to the presence of Myrcene, Limonene and Pinene terpenes which help boost some of the effects of THC. With an herbal and citrusy flavor profile, Jerry OG promotes a great mix of mental cerebral effects and deeply relaxing physical effects. Many users describe the first impression of Jerry OG to be bright and uplifting, chasing away feelings of stress and fatigue with ease and leaving behind a clear-headed, energetic mental effect. After the effects take hold, it tends to creep into the body where it soothes sore muscles, eases the symptoms of chronic pain or arthritis, stops cramps and spasms, and helps with nausea. However, even with such powerful physical effects, Jerry OG is still considered a sativa-leaning strain. It works well in both the mind and body without the couch-lock or slowed down sluggish feeling that some THC-heavy indica strains offer.

Jerry OG Medical Uses 

The beautiful marriage between physical and mental effects promoted by the Jerry OG cannabis strain make it a great choice for daytime medicine. The strain helps without hindering and offers powerful relief without having to worry about the midday crash as you would with many other physically relieving strains. The balance of effects makes Jerry OG a good choice for soothing mental symptoms like chronic stress, anxiety, or depression as well as fatigue thanks to its clear, uplifting, energetic sensation. However, it’s also a top-tier choice for treating chronic conditions, like pain, PMS, muscle cramps and spasms, asthma, and nausea. Ultimately, it’s a great choice for daytime use and medicating on the go.

Jerry OG Grow Guide

Jerry OG grows in typical sativa fashion: tall and larfy with skinny water leaves and cola-bearing stalks. She’s rated moderate when it comes to cultivation since she likes to grow, but it takes some practice to get her to grow to her full potential. She needs a lot of bending, topping, and training early on to encourage manageable growth and stalks that can support big flowers. We recommend setting up trellis netting for the tops to grow through to keep her manageable. The strain isn’t any more susceptible to pests and disease than most, but always be sure to monitor your humidity levels with Jerry OG to avoid moldy flowers.

Kush Bomb Strain review

The parents of Kush Bomb are Southern Cali Kush and Big Bomb. Kush Bomb explodes with citrus and fuel aromas, entangling one’s soul with mighty vibes. The THC levels hit that “today’s weed is too strong” levels. Kush Bomb comprises 20-25% THC, and together with other cannabinoids induces versatile energetic and physical sensations.

Kush Bomb is a high-yielder; growers can expect around 600-700g/m² of dank. This strain can be found in both indoor and outdoor weed operations. Kush Bomb can reach up to 2.5 meters in height, which is definitely a sativa trait. The flowering period lasts around 7-9 weeks. The plants are cropped between the end of September and early October.

Outdoors it can easily reach 2.5 metres with significantly increased yields and will be ready by late September, early October. The inclusion of Big Bomb genetics has helped increase overall production levels, making this a viable commercial strain.

kush bomb strain review

Kush Bomb has very high THC production and when grown in optimal conditions can reach 20-25%. Buds visibly glisten with crystals, making this an excellent choice for resin lovers. The strength and potency also offer first rate medicinal qualities. Kush Bomb epitomises Bomb Seeds characteristics: Power, strength and yield!

Strain Characteristics

Kush Bomb weed grows to a medium height indoors, staying between 90 and 130 centimetres, but outdoors can reach a whopping 2.5 metres. The plants grow with a large and long branching structure and a high bud to leaf ratio, with buds needing support towards the latter stages of flowering. The buds are thick, dense, and visibly glisten with sticky resin. THC levels are extremely high at around 25%.

Indoors, its branching growth structure makes it ideal for SCROG setups. Kush Bomb weed is easy to grow and will thrive in a simple soil set up, but absolutely explodes in hydroponics, where you can expect incredible yields of up to 700 grams per square meter. It is a surprisingly fast finisher with a flowering time of only 7-9 weeks.

Outdoors, you can grow it in a cooler northern climate, but it really needs somewhere with a climate akin to the Mediterranean to reach its full potential. Yields can significantly increase outside and harvests come towards the end of September, beginning of October.

With the Kush Bomb strain, the breeders at Bomb Seeds have created something that epitomises its goals; Power, strength, and yield. This weed really achieves those aims; it’s a huge yielding, easy to grow weed strain that will knock out even the hardest of smokers. Although it’s easy to grow, beginners should approach with caution.

Type of High

Kush Bomb cannabis strain’s high comes on quickly and engulfs your mind and body in an all-around buzz. It starts with an inspiring headiness and is followed up by a deep, resounding body stone. THC Bomb is a potent hybrid marijuana strain. This strain produces energizing and happy effects. THC Bomb tastes like citrus with woody undertones. Growers say this strain comes in large buds that have a covering of bright orange hairs.

Berry bomb: brace yourselves, the dank has been dropped

Once the Berry Bomb drops on the ground, it explodes with berry fairies and rainbow-ish buds. It’s fair to say that Berry Bomb generates dope colors during the flowering period, and delivers higher yields than her Blueberry mother. The father of this indica dominant strain is Bomb #1. This strain is one of these connoisseur indica strains, it’s not the most popular, but it’s quite impressive. Let’s immerse ourselves into the Berry Bomb explosion.

Upon hitting that toke, one’s consciousness transports itself into wonderland, where berries of all shapes and sizes paint the horizon, as far as the eye can see. This indica dominant strain has some solid sativa influence, together inducing colorful all-around highs, leaning more to the relaxing indica side. The THC-levels hover between 15-20%, which can be quite potent for novice tokers. If one enjoys baking some dope space cakes, or ganja-infused berry pies, the terpenes inherent in Berry Bomb will enhance the culinary outcome. Hands down.

Blueberry strains usually grow quite short and compact, although Berry Bomb has adopted the stretchy growth of its Bomb #1 father. The internodal space is quite wide, making this strain perfect for SCROG’ing. Both indoor and outdoor growers will receive about 500-600g/m² of dry Berry Bomb nugs. Outdoors, this plant can grow freely, although string support could be required to carry the nugs.

If the temperatures can be controlled during the late flowering stage, the night cycle temps should drop a bit. This will create some magnificently purple and red colors on the buds and leaves. This cultivar reaches around 90-120cm in height and should be harvested during September-October in outdoor settings. Also, many claim that Berry Bomb is very resistant to mold, due to the structure of the buds.

About Berry Bomb

Berry Bomb is a balanced hybrid with indica leanings and a bag appeal that consistently blows users away. Developed by Bomb Seeds, a Netherlands-based producer, this flavor-focused strain delivers mental stimulation and a strong body high that’s great for mellow unwinding. Berry Bomb is a cross between fruity staple Blueberry and Bomb Seeds’ own flagship strain Bomb #1. This strain’s THC content has been measured at between a modest 10% and a solid 23%.

Berry Bomb is marked by small to medium-sized buds that cling together in dense, pebbly clusters. Broad at their bases, the flowers taper down into a spade-like shape. The tightly-curled leaves are a mossy shade of green and are threaded through with orange to rust-colored pistils. Many phenotypes of Berry Bomb also show off muted shades of blue and purple in their leaves; these surprising hues come about when pigments called anthocyanins are agitated by colder than average temperatures during the growing process. A dusting of translucent white trichomes gives the colorful buds a dewy appearance and a sticky texture.

The influence of parent strain Blueberry on Berry Bomb’s aroma is clear, as the unmistakable scent of blueberries wafts up from the cured buds. There are also some woodsy notes of cedar and pine that ground out this fruity character and keep it from smelling overly sweet. Breaking open the flowers may yield some peppery odors as well. When combusted, Berry Bomb gives off a smoke that is smooth but thick and lung-expanding. This smoke carries a sweet and tart blueberry tang when exhaled. Notably, this strain’s blueberry flavor and aroma are entirely incidental to the blue coloring of its leaves – this is because, while the plant’s hues are determined by pigmentations, its flavor profile is dictated by separate chemical compounds called terpenes.

white kush

White OG Kush

The White is a potent hybrid marijuana strain known for having a distinct lack of odor or flavor. The White gives off a high that is usually described as providing equal body and head sensations. This mysterious strain—originally called “Triangle” and supposedly from somewhere in Florida—is aptly named. The White is covered with so many white trichomes that buds look like they were rolled in confectioner’s sugar. While it looks much like an OG in structure and certainly has the potency associated with the best OG Kush cuts, it has little of the smell or flavor found in those West Coast favorites. Those who do not enjoy the flavor and aroma of cannabis opt for this strain over more pungent varieties. Medical marijuana patients choose this strain to help relieve symptoms associated with insomnia.

Strain Information

White Kush is a 100% pure indica strain that is a potent cross of the infamous and hugely popular Afgahn Kush X White Widow strains. This dank bud boasts a THC level that ranges from 18-22%, depending on the breeder, and a myriad of indica effects. White Kush has a pungent floral earth taste and an aroma akin to planting flowers in a garden the day after it rains. White Kush buds have long neon green pepper-shaped nugs with patches of light minty green and a spattering of long thin almost translucent amber hairs. These nugs are dusted with a fine layer of sand-like trichomes and are sticky with a light layer of resin. Users describe the White Kush high as one that creeps up on you and suddenly hits you with an uncontrollable fit of the giggles. This is followed by a fall into complete relaxation with an overwhelming sense of pain relief in both mind and body. Upon the come down from this high you’ll start to feel sleep and sedated, easing you off into a wonderful night’s sleep. Due to these potent effects, White Kush is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as insomnia, pain, and chronic stress or anxiety.

looks like white

White Kush is a powerful indica cannabis strain born from Afghan Kush and White Widow. The dreamy qualities of White Kush do not disappoint, bringing on deep relaxation and stress relief perfect for the latter half of the day. The initial powerful cerebral euphoria eventually gives way to deep body and mind relaxation that helps bring on sleep.

Many consumers report buying White Kush to treat depression, insomnia, stress, lack of appetite, pain.

What is the White Strain?

The White plant is very similar in structure to OG Kush, which leads some to speculate that it is likely to have been crossed with OG and another unknown strain. While The White’s appearance is similar to OG and its potency is right up there with it, its distinct lack of flavor and aroma contrasts starkly with OG’s strong, earthy fragrance and taste.

Make no mistake about it, The White is a very potent strain with a high THC level which is offset by a much more modest CBD level, ranging between 0.15-0.25%. Cannabis analysis laboratory Analytical 360 have recorded samples of The White with staggering THC levels of between 25-30%. This is definitely not a strain for a novice smoker to try out – this is one for a more experienced cannabis user to enjoy in moderation.

Due to its potency, The White’s high comes on fast, with smokers benefiting from the effects of both its sativa and indica genetics. Once the initial feeling of euphoria dissipates, the uplifting effects leave you feeling happy and deeply relaxed.

The White Strain Flavor, Aroma and Appearance

As mentioned already, The White is known for its distinct lack of odor, which leads some cannabis connoisseurs to overlook it for other more fragrant strains. However, this is a mistake, because what The White lacks in aroma it more than makes up for in its positive effects. The White is not completely without a fragrance; the buds do produce a slightly earthy scent when ground up and burned. Also, while The White’s flavors are mild in comparison to other strains, you can still pick up a dank piney flavor on the exhale.

Apart from its potency, The White is probably best known for its heavily frosted appearance. The White’s dense, medium-sized buds are so coated in trichomes that it will have you dreaming of a “White” Christmas. Structure-wise, the plant resembles an OG Kush plant, and also produces a similar yield.

The White Strain Grow Info

The White is a clone-only strain, which means that in order to grow this plant you will need to use clippings from a mature plant of this variety. The White plant is a pretty high maintenance one to grow. It needs to be fed quite heavily and also requires a significant amount of pruning to maximize air circulation and energy distribution to the upper buds.

It is recommended that you top this plant early to encourage lateral growth. As the plant’s top and “neckbone” sites produce the densest and highest quality buds, it is highly recommended that you heavily prune the lower branches to maximize bud production in these key sites.

Try to withstand the temptation to harvest this plant early. Just because The White plant becomes heavily coated in silvery-white trichomes early in the flowering period doesn’t mean it’s the right time to harvest. Patience is definitely a virtue when growing this plant, as it becomes even more heavily frosted in the later stages of growth.

looks like white

The flowering period for The White plants is between 8-10 weeks, with the end of September being the ideal time of the year for harvesting outdoors. Indoor growers of this plant can expect an average yield of around 12-16 ounces per square meter. Those growing outdoors will get a more generous return for their time and effort, with the average outdoor yield being around 20 ounces per plant.

Medical Benefits of The White Strain

The White strain offers many benefits to the medicinal cannabis smoker due to the relaxing nature of its indica genetics. This strain is great for people who need to unwind and de-stress while the deep body and mind relaxation effect also make this strain a great choice for people suffering from insomnia. This strain produces such a “body-melt” effect that later in the evening will make your eyes start to feel heavy, and before long you will be drifting off to a peaceful and restful night’s sleep.

The White is also an effective pain reliever too and is useful for treating a number of painful conditions such as arthritis, muscular pain, and lower-back pain. The positive and uplifting effect The White has on one’s mood also makes this strain useful for treating mood disorders such as depression.

Possible Side Effects of The White Strain

Due to its potency, smokers of The White have reported experiencing some negative side effects beyond the usual more common ones like dry mouth or dry eyes. Some have said that The White gave them a mild headache, while others have reported feeling dizzy with heightened anxiety and even paranoia. The best way to prevent these negative side effects is by consuming The White weed responsibly. If you have little or no experience smoking cannabis either recreationally or medicinally, then this is not the strain for you.

Final Thoughts on The White Strain

If you are looking for a cannabis strain bursting with taste and flavor, then you will definitely find more fragrant and pleasing to the palate strains out there than The White. However, if you are seasoned cannabis smoker with plenty of experience smoking more potent strains and are looking for a heavy-hitting strain to counteract the negative effects of stress and depression, then you will be amazed by the White’s effects.

Flower Hammer

Flower Hammer

9 Pound Hammer is a heavy-hitting indica with a patchwork genetic background. It is a three-way cross between Jack the Ripper, Hell’s Angel OG and fruity Gooberry. This relaxing bud was created by prolific breeders TGA Subcool Seeds, the same producers responsible for Deep Purple and Jesus OG. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has measured 9 Pound Hammer’s potency at between 14% and 23% THC.

9 Pound Hammer is visually impressive, with large, chunky, multi-colored flowers. The buds adhere in a dense, solid formation, with short leaves coiled tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a mossy green and are threaded through with yellow and orange pistils. Flowers also commonly have flashes of purple due to high concentrations of anthocyanin pigments in their leaves; the shades of purple emerge when these pigments are agitated by cold weather during the growing process. A blanket of frosty trichomes covers the buds and makes them particularly sticky.

flower hammer

The first batch of 9lb Hammer flower I got (in December 2018) were a vibrant, almost bright shade of green. This batch is actually a few shades darker than the first batch I got, and though it has less total cannabinoid percentages, it is much more covered in trichomes than the first batch I received.

The eighth I got was made up of over a dozen small, dense buds. There was no shake, no seeds, and no small stems other than the thicker stems inside the buds themselves.

This batch of 9b Hammer was a bit dry, similar to the batch I got in late 2018. Again, it wasn’t dried to the point that it crumbled when handled, but it was extremely easy to break down. I believe Trulieve will continue to refine their curing process, and the quality will continue to improve as we move forward.

About 9 Pound Hammer

When properly cured, 9 Pound Hammer has a strong fruity aroma with a tropical inflection. Like parent strain Jack the Ripper, it is redolent of citrus and grape. Meanwhile, breaking the buds apart gives off a strong incense-like odor courtesy of this strain’s Afghani landrace lineage. When combusted in a bowl or a joint, 9 Pound Hammer burns with a remarkably smooth smoke that tastes woodsy and piney with a hint of lime on the exhale. Notably, this strain’s pronounced grape flavor is entirely incidental to its purple hues — as with any other variety, its flavor is determined by terpene compounds while its appearance is dictated by its unique pigmentation.

This strain is named 9 Pound Hammer for a reason: almost immediately, it hits users over the head with its heavy-duty sedation. Deep breathing may come more easily and muscular tension may dissipate. This sensation soon progresses into a full-body high that may leave smokers feeling floaty and disoriented. In addition to these somatic effects, 9 Pound Hammer imparts some subtle mental stimulation — while it may not trigger intense, cerebral thinking, it can alter perception, making sounds or colors take on a new intensity. If dosage is increased, this strain is liable to cause couch-lock, sapping energy and motivation along with any lingering pain and stress. As a result, 9 Pound Hammer is best enjoyed at night, when its strong sedative effects can easily transition into sleep.

9 Pound Hammer can be of great value to medical cannabis patients as well. It can provide temporary relief from the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Its sedative, almost narcotic properties can relieve aches and pains of all kinds. Meanwhile, its ability to provoke hunger can help those who have lost their appetites due to medications or treatments like chemotherapy. As noted, 9 Pound Hammer is of particular interest to people who summer from insomnia; it can lull smokers into a deep and refreshing sleep. Because it rarely brings about the kind of recursive thinking that leads to paranoia, this strain is a good option for people who suffer from frequent panic or anxiety.

Fortunately for growers, TGA has made seeds of 9 Pound Hammer available for sale online. It can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It is easily accommodated indoors, where its plants grow short and bushy with strong lateral branching. Growers should be sure to trim away any broad, light-blocking fan leaves in order to encourage the growth of flowering nodes on lower branches. Thanks to some very stable genes, it is also resistant to mildew. Finally, growers looking to bring out this strain’s full bag appeal should bring out its shades of purple by exposing the plants to cold (but not freezing) nighttime temperatures. 9 Pound Hammer flowers within a brief 7 to 8 weeks when grown indoors and offers growers a high yield of flowers for their efforts.

flower hammer

Not a strain to be underestimated, 9 Pound Hammer is an ideal choice for weekend or evening relaxation. Although its mellow vibes can be very social, it may be better suited to use with good friends rather than new acquaintances because of its tendency to inhibit conversation.

Ready to smack you with bliss

9 Pound Hammer came into existence after a threesome occurred between Gooberry, Jack The Ripper, and Hell’s OG. This strain definitely hammers you down. 9 Pound Hammer is an indica-dominant hybrid that induces potent couch-locking sensations with its 18–23% THC levels. The pungent berry and lime flavors go hand-in-hand with the cool high.

With its short flowering time of 50–60 days, 9 Pound Hammer is very time efficient. This strain develops a regular green color; however, in some spots on the leaves and buds, purplish hues can be discovered. This strain is considered very resistant to powdery mildew. It can be grown both indoors and outdoors. If the grower is struggling with limited space, it’s best to top the plants during the early veg days.

Effects/Medical Use

I always enjoy the effects of 9lb Hammer. It’s definitely a heavier indica, and there’s almost no notable cerebral stimulation with this strain. The first effects have an onset almost immediately after smoking or vaporizing the flower; a warm sensation blankets the body and helps ease away any aches or pains. 9lb Hammer also does a solid job of alleviating my anxiety, and helping me to relax and enjoy whatever activity I’m doing at the time. This is a great strain for relief of insomnia, particularly in high doses.

I wouldn’t recommend this strain for daytime medication, at least not if you plan on getting anything done. 9lb Hammer will most likely result in the patient having to take a nap if used in high doses during the day. My favorite way to use this strain is to wind down during the later evening hours. I find it enjoyable for watching TV and playing video games during the final few hours of the day. After smoking a few bowls, it almost always leads to getting the munchies; after I’ve finished eating, my eyes and head are usually getting too heavy to be able to stay awake.

Continuing the theme of variance between this batch and the last one I got, the effects of this batch seem to be a little heavier and more indica-leaning. If I had to put a number to it, I would say this is an 85/15% indica-dominant strain. It’s a staple in my nighttime medication regimen, and I’ll definitely buy it again in the future.

Possibly good for treating:

  • Good for relaxation
  • Relief of moderate skeletal/muscular aches and pains
  • Relief of minor to moderate nausea and gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of appetite
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches

Trainwreck

Trainwreck is a mind-bending, potent sativa with effects that hit like a freight train. Mexican and Thai sativas were bred with Afghani indicas to produce this Northern California staple, passing on a sweet lemon and spicy pine aroma. Trainwreck begins its speedy hurtle through the mind with a surge of euphoria, awakening creativity and happiness. Migraines, pain, and arthritis are mowed down by Trainwreck’s high-THC content, and many patients also use it for relief of anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and PTSD. Trainwreck flowers tend to finish early when growing outdoors, while indoor gardens are ready for harvest after 8 weeks.

Strain Information

According to the breeder, Purple Trainwreck has a mostly indica lineage, producing violet and purple-hued buds in a 58-to-63-day flowering period. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation, though particularly responsive to warm, Mediterranean climates, this strain is resistant to both pests and moisture.

Trainwreck didn’t get its name or claim to fame in the marijuana community for no reason at all. This exhilarating hybrid strain has mind blowing components that will hit you like a train after just a couple of hits. A combination of 2 sativas (Mexican and Thai) and one indica (Afghani), this strain is nothing short of a mental roller coaster ride. Although Trainwreck is mainly sativa dominant (80:20 sativa/indica ratio), you can expect a mellowing body high in addition to a cognitive high that administers imaginative and inventive thoughts. Patients commonly use Trainwreck to relieve pain, PTSD and stress. You can smoke this strain comfortably throughout the day even with its super high potency. It’s long green leaves are accompanied by a pine/citrus aroma that can’t be mistaken. You can expect a noticeable after taste of lemon with a slight cough when inhaling this strain.. There’s definitely a heavy amount of trichomes (hairs) on this strain which gives it a light green color and sometimes a subtle hint of gray.

treck wreck

No matter where the crop is grown, trim these girls regularly so that their leaves don’t spread out too much and overwhelm each other, in addition to consuming the space that they are located in.

Thankfully, Trainwreck has high resistance towards everyday pests, mold, powdery mildew, and diseases. Outdoors and indoors grows are both suitable for this hefty strain, but Trainwreck weed typically takes longer to mature and then harvest when kept outside. If you do choose to go the all-natural route, be sure to only cultivate Trainwreck weed in a climate that is dry, yet kept away from frost.

The flowering period for this ganja is 8-10 weeks, with outdoor harvest falling around early to late October. Outdoor yields typically range around 25 ounces per plant, which is quite generous compared to the indoor harvest, which is around 18 ounces per square meter.

OG Wreck is a strain that produces long deep green buds, occasionally tinged with hues of blues. Their pistils are a brilliant orange, and its cured nuggets are coated in a light shimmering layer of trichomes. Its scent and flavor are reminiscent of sweet and sour fruit, being skunky with peppery undertones.

THC levels vary, so be sure to check your batch’s potency. Reviewers have noted that this strain mostly has an effect on mindset. As mood improves and it becomes easier to spot the good in what surrounds you, the body is released from tension, some have explained. Some say they have used OG Wreck to help reduce the symptoms of migraines while others have experienced an increase in hunger.

Aroma, Flavor & Appearance

As mentioned above, one of the characteristics that have caused Trainwreck to become such a world-famous strain is its distinctive and immediately identifiable aroma and flavor. The minute you crack open your storage jar, the scent of lemon-lime will overwhelm you and the room you’re in, but this version is unlike most other citrus aroma strains.

treck wreck

Topped with notes of menthol and acidic sourness, nothing about the Trainwreck name or appearance would lead you to believe that this is actually how it smells, but the result is pleasant and unexpected, acting somewhat as a surprise for first-time triers of Trainwreck weed. The flavor is likewise satisfying, giving off a semi-spicy or even peppery tang that zings and zaps the taste buds, waking you up with its charming, pungent taste that hits with earthy and woodsy notes after the initial impact.

Appearance-wise, you can tell Trainwreck produces a strong high just by looking at a single bud. The buds are often covered in a thick layer of frosty THC-packed trichomes, with little bits of resin that glimmer and sparkle each time the light hits it. The buds are beautiful with all their glam, but additionally, they are healthy and potent neon green in color. Sultry, brassy orange, and sometimes slightly red pistils curl and twist amongst the sticky frost and bright sugar leaves.

Trainwreck Negative Effects

Many reviews of the Trainwreck strain do claim that this marijuana has the ability to assist those who deal with anxiety and panic attacks. However, after reading many of the reviews from those who have directly tried this slightly psychoactive and hefty strain, it is obvious that many claim to not have enjoyed Trainwreck. This is often because they are prone to panic attacks and had an episode after consuming this cannabis.

It seems that overall, it is best for patients and consumers with a tendency to react negatively to THC heavy weed to stay away from Trainwreck.  It can increase anxiety, paranoia, and other uncomfortable experiences.

The Trainwreck strain overall produces a pleasant high with minimal side effects, but if you get anxious easily beware.

The other reported negative side effects are rather minimal and easily manageable, with dry mouth (cottonmouth) and dry eyes sometimes occurring after intake. Dry mouth is preventable by drinking plenty of hydrating fluids before, during, and after your high, which will also keep you hydrated making developing a headache less likely.

Keeping a bottle of moisturizing eye drops nearby when consuming cannabis is a wise idea, because then if your eyes become dry or itchy, these drops will take care of the problem with instant relief. Eye drops can be purchased inexpensively at most drug stores. As long as precautions are taken, the Trainwreck strain overall produces a pleasant high with minimal side effects, but if you get anxious easily beware, this strain is not for you.

Tutti Frutti

Tutti Frutti

As the name suggests, Tutti Frutti provides a blast of fruit flavor that sativa lovers will flock to.

tutti frutti edmonton

Tutti Frutti has a smell that’s said to be like a bowl of Fruity Pebbles or Fruit Loops, with a sweet citrus berry and candy bouquet. The taste is just as delicious, with a sweet berry candy taste that has an even sweeter sugary citrus aftertaste that lingers long after you toke. The Tutti Frutti high has a slowly creeping euphoric effect that builds often without you taking notice. When you finally do, it’s too late – you’ll be hit with a huge upward mood swing that launches your head into the clouds and your spirit even higher! This powerful effect lasts for hours on end and provides a great sense of energy that’s not too overwhelming. 

Like the candy, Tutti Frutti marijuana seeds get their name from their plant’s coloration. The nugs of these plants have rainbow colors scattered throughout, plus a heavy coat of white trichomes. The aroma is sweet and fruity, as well, almost to the point of being addictive. Stop and smell the flower whenever you can!

Overview

Plums, cherries and even orange. The smell (and taste) of Tutti Frutti is explosively sweet. And the effects of this species are at least as versatile.

Tutti Frutti is a sativa-dominant and hybrid strain. The high has a slow sneaking and euphoric effect. Often this builds up without you even noticing. Tutti Frutti gives a strong head high that stimulates the senses and stimulates the problem-solving capacity.

At the end of the high you feel calm and clear. Relaxing your muscles and stress disappear like snow in the sun. A place on the couch is therefore extra attractive. However, a couch-lock hardly ever occurs.

Tutti Frutti Total Score: 94

Tutti Frutti is one of the seemingly infinite number of strains in the legal cannabis market. Most strains have either an upper or downer effect. Typically the effects are not that different from strain to stain. There usually isn’t a necessary connection. This is not the case with Tutti Frutti. These specific buds were obtained from an Ann Arbor, MI medical dispensary.

Tutti Frutti – Appearance

The buds were small and highly compact with lots of little orange stigma all over them. It’s a cute bud, in a way. There were visible frosty trichomes all over the flower and there wasn’t much leaf left. Mostly there were just potential seed sacs and their attached hairy stigmas. Small is sometimes beautiful and in this case it is. I deducted points for the size of the buds because I knew them to be from the bottom of the plant. The only other down side was the buds being a little dry. A day or two with a humidifier packet to 62% should solve that issue.

WOW! After grinding, the flower the scents were amazingly clear and strong. Highly scented with aromas of plum, cherry, and even orange. Not a lot of lemon (limonene) in the aroma, but super fruity and complex.

Aroma Score: 19/20

Tutti Frutti – Taste

The fruit aromas were strongly reflected in the taste. This isn’t typically the case with other strains, but the taste in my pipe before lighting up was kind of surprisingly close to the aroma. It tasted so good, I didn’t want to light it up. It was just that good.

Taste Score: 19/20

Tutti Frutti – Effect

This is a case of – ‘wait for it’ – as the high took a little bit to come on. And then bam, you’re very high. At first I waited a few minutes and nothing happened. I decided to take another puff. Then at about the 15 minute mark, it came in a heady rush that went to a certain level, and hung on for the first hour. And that was only two puffs, about 15 minutes apart. It was potent cannabis. I never looked at the THC content percent because I don’t believe it’s relevant. but going back to the Liv site, I noted it was listed as a hybrid, but there was no THC content on the page.

After about 2 hours, came the surprise; For the first 1 1/2 to 2 hours of the effect was very sativa like. I got a lot of work done, like cleaning the kitchen. After about 2 hours, I got very sleepy. This must have been the ‘indica’ part of the ride. I was already in the sack and planning on consuming a little indica to sleep. But, I didn’t need it. Tutti frutti put me in a very somnolent state and I slept like a baby all night. Sweet. The sativa buzz wasn’t my favorite…I only come across that about once a year, but it was really nice and creative and the latter part of the buzz was really nice and sleepy. Because of the sativa/indica effects, this was a 2 for 1 deal.

Effect Score: 18/20

Tutti Frutti Summary

Tutti Frutti is a strain well worth seeking out if you want something that can propel you through an evening into the sleepy zone of relaxation and rest. I don’t believe I’ve ever had any bud before that had this many strong effects. I liked it a lot. A whole lot. Given this strain’s immense complexities and strong effects, this flower is easily worth a pretty high score.
