When it comes to creating a guide to cannabis strains, there are a number of different ways to go. You can search for “dispensary near me” or “best cannabis flower selection Canna Provisions” to get right to the heart of things, or you can do a little advance research.
In order to keep you up on the latest strains and flower supply at Canna Provisions Lee, Canna Provisions Holyoke, and our Easthampton store, we offer this, our “Flower Power” series looking at five marijuana strains we carry from our partners and cultivators.
And for today’s installment….
Who: Nature’s Heritage Cannabis Co.
What they are: Purveyors of the “best cannabis Mother Earth has to offer” as per their tagline. And if you have purchased their energetic, balanced, relaxing and terpene packed marijuana flower you’ll probably agree with them.
FIVE STRAINS BY NATURE’S HERITAGE TO KNOW:
Bred by Ethos Genetics, Lilac Diesel crosses numerous genetics to bring an entirely new strain to the market. Silver Lemon Haze x Forbidden Fruit is crossed with NYC Cherry Pie and Citral Glue to bring out this flavorful Chemdog-ish strain. Talk to anyone who has become a fan of this strain for its floral bouquet that’s touched by citrus, sweetness, and gas, the smoke is smooth and clean and the high is joyful, energetic, and focused while lacking the jitters and espresso-like intensity its lineage would suggest. Cultivated by Panacea Wellness here in Massachusetts, this one is to be coveted and then brought out for the connoisseurs in your life.
Horace by Swamp Boys Seeds is a mixture of the renowned Banana OG crossed with SBS’s prized Nigerian proprietary Nigerian sativa landrace. So this strain offers dynamic, long-lasting effects for those seeking uplifting, creative, social flower. Medium to large size shaped buds with long, feathery leaves hued forest green, with some phenotypes mixing in shades of dark blue or purple as well. And check out those white trichomes to finish off these vivid buds. The good news: Horace tastes as good as it smells. Expect fruity notes and thanks to a Banana OG lineage, lots of banana and even tropical citrus. Grind up a fresh bud and you’ll get a touch of skunky, almost fermented odor, but the exhale and squeezed citrus and velvet cake. Get some.
Mandarin Zkittlez is a rare slightly indica dominant hybrid strain (60% indica/40% sativa) created through crossing the delicious California Black Rosé X Mandarin Sunset strains. Known for its super tasty flavor, Mandarin Zkittlez is perfect for any hybrid lover who appreciates well-balanced effects and a mouthwatering taste. Mandarin Zkittlez packs a sweet citrusy and fruity grape flavor from the beautiful purple, black, and red buds. Its dense, resinous buds flowers are flavor-packed with grape, grapefruit, spice, and orange notes that makes instant fans of any cannabis consumer from novice to the well experienced.
Bred by Ethos Genetics, Crescendo crosses Chemdog, I-95, and Mandarin Cookies to create this indica -dominant hybrid. Its terpene profile produces sweet, earthy, and citrus aromas with gassy, kushy, and sweet cookie dough flavors. Buds are large in size and mostly green with purple color tones. Relaxed, hungry, happy, uplifted are effects one can expect from the complex flavor profile. Are you new to cannabis? This one will be a strong experience with a solid THC profile, so go low and slow with Crescendo. Those buds have a dense layer of white trichomes that pack a solid high, with flavors ranging from sweet cookies, earth, gas, fruit, and kush all blending together to create something that’s tasty and often leaves you wanting more. Note: this one is known to stimulate the appetite and be a real nighttime treat, so snack happy or snack healthy but don’t say we didn’t say expect snacking! A staff favorite.
EBONY + IVORY
Ebony + Ivory strain is a cross of a world famous clone for spearmint kush flavors that abound with this one, so get ready. It’s a sativa dominant hybrid strain (75% sativa/25% indica) created through crossing the classic The White X Nigerian strains. High flying and energizing effects that soon fade into a sense of calm and ease after the fast onset brings you effects ranging from uplifted racy euphoria to frenzied energy. With that kind of power, you’ll be up and moving so we suggest using this one for physical activities or anything requiring energetic efforts. There’s an ebb and flow, though, and once the turbo winds down, you’ll find it’s a great spicy and hash-y woody earth flavor with a kick of diesel gas. The nose picks up light flowers and herbs, and the dense grape-shaped emerald green buds with tons of thin orange hairs and a coating of tiny frosty white crystal trichomes makes this as beautiful to look at as it is to consume.
