White Lightning

Dose: 24% – 32.5% THC 

Highland Grow had a flash of brilliance with their White Lightning by crossing two classic strains in Hindu and Northern Lights. A terpene profile of beta-caryophyllene, humulene, limonene and myrcene gives this strain a heavy gas flavour with some spiced earthy tastes breaking out.

Hit this strain lightly—the high THC content is grown with seasoned smokers in mind.

Craft cannabis offerings are an easy pick and if you like smooth-hitting cookie genetics, Msiku’s Peggy’s Pride is a must-have. The caryophyllene content gives this strain a woody and cinnamon taste while humulene, limonene, linalool and myrcene add hints of sweet fruit.

On top of the great taste and smoke quality, the buds are typically dense, dripping in shiny crystals emitting wildly bright orange and green colours.
