Happy New Year, dearest connoisseurs, grassy green horns, and cannabis-curious individuals! We’re barely a week in to 2017 and cannabis flowers are literally and metaphorically taking root all over the country, and likely in a state near you. With eight new states joining the movement and innovative breeder and growers emerging from their respective gray markets, one can only imagine the new genetics sprouting from fertile soil to reach toward the life-giving light of legality.
So, without further adieu, here is a handful of special crosses from Royal Choice Farms out of Arizona, one of the newest states to join the west coast/Best Coast adult-use cannabis enclave, as well as a new Strawberry Cough cross, a new Cookies cross, and a double-deep Hash Plant cut from the Golden State.
Strawberry Frost by MaddFarmer is a three-way cross of fruity trichome producers. The genetic descendant of a Strawberry Cough/Deep Chunk hybrid crossed with Space Queen, Strawberry Frost is a heady indica-dominant strain that is gentle on the body. This dreamy strain calms the body and elevates the mind, placing the consumer in a relaxed, whimsical state. These effects naturally aid with stress, anxiety, and general restlessness.
California Hash Plant is a combination of two sister strains from the same Hash Plant mother. Offering a spicy, floral aroma, this endogamic cross weighs heavily on the limbs and mind, dissolving anxiety and encouraging rest. Known for its mold resistance and indoor or outdoor adaptability, California Hash Plant is a solid choice for experienced growers seeking out a potent cannabis variety. Enjoy California Hash Plant near the end of the day as its sedative effects can give lead boots to the consumer’s motivation.
Captain’s Cake by The Captain’s Connection is a hybrid cross between Girl Scout Cookies and White Fire Alien OG. With bright citrus terpenes on the nose and palate, and a sweet doughy earth aroma, Captain’s Cake is a crowd-pleaser with enjoyable relaxing effects. This strain is euphoric and easy on the limbs in small doses, but can get rather sedating with heavy consumption. Enjoy the laid-back energy of Captain’s Cake into the evening to set you up for a good night’s rest.
Rose Bud by Royal Choice Farms in an indica-dominant cross with an enticing floral aroma. Known for its skunky rose smell and dense node clusters, Rose Bud offers consumers a relaxing buzz with a pleasant mental sizzle. This strain falls under the “beach chair” category, imbuing the consumer with an elevated, laid-back mood.
Chairman Chem Sou is another Chemdawg cross from Royal Choice Farms. This tart combination unites the ever-popular Chemdawg with Sour OG for a sour, spicy aroma and an equal measure of mental and physical effects. It has been known to suppress the appetite, elevate mood, and encourage physical activity. The palate is sweet and tangy, offering notes of citrus and pine with a fuel-like finish.
True X by Royal Choice Farms is an indica-dominant strain built for relaxation. Created by crossing C4 and True OG, True X is a sweet OG cross that offers traditional Kush effects that settle nicely on the body while percolating a warm, welcoming euphoria between the ears. Utilize this strain during the evening to relax the body and prepare for sleep. True X’s sweet and spicy terpenes make for a flavorful nightcap after a long day.
Rolls Choice by Royal Choice Farms is a sativa-dominant hybrid cross. Exhibiting a pungent bouquet of diesel, pine, and sour, skunky earth, Rolls Choice shows off its OG Kush and Chemdawg parentage. The strain’s effects range from cerebral to sedating depending on dosage, and works well for consumers seeking some relief from arthritis, ulcers, gastrointestinal distress, and minor pain due to inflammation. Rolls Choice won 7th place in “Top 10 Flowers” at the 2015 Emerald Cup.
