THE SCIENCE OF STRAINS

Cannabis is powered by distinct combinations of cannabinoids (dose) & terpenes (nose).
This chemical entourage defines each strain’s unique flavor, fragrance & overall effect.
When selecting a strain, use this information to understand how it will make you feel.

Our flower labels display cannabinoids in % per gram and the top four terpenes as lettered blocks.

For simplicity, we list every strain on a range of energizing to calming (aka Sativa to Indica).

Indica Sativa Dose and Nose

Chemistry vs. Strain Names

“Strains labeled as indica were compared with those labeled as sativa and no evidence was found that these two cultivars are distinctly different chemotypes. PCA of “OG” and “Kush” type strains found that “OG” strains have relatively higher levels of α-terpineol, fenchol, limonene, camphene, terpinolene and linalool where “Kush” samples are characterized mainly by the compounds trans-ocimene, guaiol, β-eudesmol, myrcene and α-pinene.”
