THE SCIENCE OF STRAINS

Cannabis has two key ingredients: cannabinoids (dose) & terpenes (nose).
This chemical entourage defines the flavor, fragrance & overall effect of cannabis.
When selecting a strain, use this information to understand how it will make you feel.

Check out how our menu looks when we organize strain by their dominant terpene!

VIEW STRAINS BY TERPENE

Strain names don't always help explain what's in the jar.

Our flower labels include cannabinoids in % per gram and the top four terpenes as lettered blocks.
A box with a spike indicates a dominant terpene.

Indica Sativa Dose and Nose

Dominant terpenes have the largest influence over the effect of that strain.
The three (3) MYRCENE (MR) dominant strains listed above may all have MR in the first block,
but the variation in "peak" or dominant terpenes makes them all 'feel' dramatically different.

AK has a single dominant terpene - MYRCENE (MR).
Green Dream has two dominant terpenes - MYRCENE (MR) & PINENE (PN).
Lemonade has three dominant terpenes - MRYCENE (MR), CARYOPHYLLENE (CR) & PINENE (PN).

Indica Sativa Dose and Nose

Another thing to keep in mind is the fact that each terpene has unique therapeutic qualities that contribute to the overall effect of a strain. Make a note of the terpenes that match up with the experience you're seeking - and use this information to select your next strain of cannabis!

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.”
