Halloween is one of the definitive harvest holidays. As outdoor crops are pulled, trimmed and cured, the state comes alive in autumn hues of green, red, and purple, with new strains and the results of this year’s careful cultivation.
Halloween draws many of its traditions from the Celtic festival of Samhain, marking the end of summer, the end of harvest season, and the end of the Celtic calendar year. As a harvest celebration it is not surprising that Halloween has become one of the most popular holidays for Cannabis consumption. (Let alone all the fun costume opportunities). That said, we have seen the benefits of this amazing harvest with a HUGE flush of new and amazing flower. Here’s a peak at just a bit of the goodness going out in our cases over the next two weeks. (Please note, not all drivers carry all strains. Please check availability with your patient care advocate)
Grand Daddy Diamond
A masterful crossing of Grand Daddy Purps and Diamond OG, this near perfect Indica is exploding with the best traits of its lineage. A rapid onset of effects begin in the head and rapidly spreads into a full body relaxation, making this strain well suited for insomnia, stress, and pain. Even in microdoses, the effects can cause an overall chilled out lethargy, so be cautious if using this for daytime relief.
Yoda OG is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic stress or anxiety, chronic pain due to injury or illness, mild to moderate cases of depression, and insomnia.This Indica strain has a slowly building body high that peaks and leaves you completely lethargic and utterly couch-locked.
This hard hitting OG Kush variant is proof, yet again, that there is nothing that amazing mother plant can’t produce. With a candied-earth aroma with the slightest trace of citrus and pine, Phantom OG is obviously kushy. Upon the first measured hit, you are greeted with an almost sativa-esque burst of uplift and cerebral effect. As if it was created to just get that out of the system, soon after you are comforted by the strong, full-body relaxation that is marked by sleepiness and a pleasant lack of focus. Perfect for insomnia, stress, and pain, this is absolutely not a day-time strain.
Named by Snoop Dogg for it’s uplifting, energetic high. The Green Crack effect is decidedly cerebral, with a big mood boost and a jolt of energy. This strain spurs creativity and helps patients get things done. It’s most effective in treating anxiety and depression, along with ADHD, PTSD, and migraines. Green Crack has a sweet flavor with tropical and citrus notes. The buds are dense and tight. Enjoy!
Durban Poison is legendary for its energetic, almost effervescent Sativa effects; turning wallflowers into chatterboxes and boasting some of the highest THC levels of any of the frequent Cannabis Cup Winners. Throw in the complexity and aromas of Cherry AK-47 and you have a sweet, strong sativa that is subtly balanced by the Indica phenotypes of it’s AK lineage. A happy daytime strain, this is ideal for stress, depression, pain, and fatigue.
The result of crossing AK-47 with Blue Satellite, Hippy Crippler earns it name easily. This hybrid strain is well balanced, with an Indica relaxation combined with a spacey sativa uplift. Good for daytime enjoyment with measured consumption, over indulgence can lead to an enjoyably unfocused spaciness, so it is not the best work-day strain. Hippie Crippler’s aroma belies the berry profile of Blue Satellite with an earthy, sweet pungency.
From the geniuses at Ocean Grown Seeds, Slymer is a complex hybrid, brought forth from a pairing of Ghost OG and White Fire Alien OG. With a typically relaxed, yet euphoric kushiness, Slymer leaves you feeling a bit like it’s Ghostbusters namesake, floating around and wanting to stuff food into your face. The gastronomic effects are amazing and the appetite drive on this strain is through the roof. It is also good for cramps and alleviating nausea. The Kush lineage also makes this a great strain for reducing stress and depression.
If you are lucky enough to have this one show up at your door, smell it. You’ll want it. With a deep berry sweetness of the kindest of purples combined with an earthy citrus crispness. This is one of those strains I might keep a small flower of just to occasionally pull out and smell. (Yeah right!) This cross of Face Off and Purple Indica is a well balanced and perfectly grown hybrid with strong aroma, dense nug structure, and a long-lasting, creative, and relaxing uplift.
Saying your family tree goes in circles is an insult anywhere except in Cannabis genetics. Crossing Blue Dream with Dream Star (itself a cross of Blue Dream and Star Dawg) doubles down on the dreamy Sativa uplift of Blue Dream while empowering it with the full body relaxation of Dream Star. The aroma is peppery and sweet with a hint of ripe fruit and earthen undertones.
