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: The Botanist
What they are: A nationwide medical and adult-use cannabis retailer and cultivator, with several locations in Massachusetts.
FIVE STRAINS BY THE BOTANIST TO KNOW:
Uplifting and motivating, this unique blend of Animal Cookies and Candyland won’t get you down. Super sweet, tangy citrus candy aroma and a tangy, citrus, sweet, herbal flavor. Deep purple sugar leaves, pale green bud frosted in heavy trichomes with bright orange hair. Energizing high that’s long-lasting, good for a project.
This is essentially a cross between Northern Lights (a classic if there was one) and the strain Flo. Created by breeder DJ Short in the 1990s, Flo came about by crossing a hybrid of Highland Thai with Purple Thai (itself a cross of Chocolate Thai with Oaxacan Gold,) with an Afghani landrace strain. There are two main Flo phenotypes, one with light-green coloring, and the other selected for its blue pigmentation. Consumers savor Flo for its menthol and hash flavor, that stems from its high levels of linalool and alpha-pinene. Cannabis Canada Magazine named Flo the #1 strain at the 1996 Cannabis Cup. The Botanist offering of Northern Flo is sure to bring a relaxed yet happy, uplifted, and euphoric experience.
This is a cross of Humboldt Frost and Humboldt Gelato BX3 from Humboldt Seed Company. The name is very accurate to the aroma this cultivar provides, although some of the pheno’s The Botanist hunted through carried a very citrus forward profile. The flowers are a nice combination of purple and green and almost have a silvery appearance to them in combination with the resin.
Some Funky Frosty Margy Dog. Chem D brings that diesel funk to this cross. Expect heavy yielding gassy flowers with this one.
Orange Cookies x SinMint Cookies! This terp filled sativa strain is packed with aromas. It provides powerfully euphoric effects that let your mind float blissfully away from the day’s stresses. Its aroma is a subtle mix of earthy sweetness with a trace of sharp mint aroma filled with sweet citrus that closely resembles a fresh tangerine. The combined flavors gives way to deep calming body effects that mingle with a euphoric cerebral buzz to leave you happy and relaxed.
