1. Super Cheese

Characteristics of Super Cheese
:

Super Cheese, bred by Positronics, is a throwback to the old school strains that filled the coffee shops of Amsterdam in the late 1980s. Super Cheese was created through inbreeding, crossing Cheese
genetics with another select phenotype
believed to be Exodus Cheese
. The aroma of this indica
-dominant hybrid
is a mix of skunky

musk and a pungent
blue cheese
funk that has become synonymous with Cheese varieties. The flavor is a strong, smooth blend of bittersweet herbs
and cream, like an earthy
buttermilk.


2. 1024

Characteristics of 1024
:

1024 is a sativa
-dominant hybrid
bred in Spain by Medical Seeds Co. The breeders claim to guard the secret genetics due to security reasons, but regardless of its genetic heritage, 1024 is a THC
powerhouse with a sweet
and spicy
bouquet. Subtle fruit
flavors mix with an herbal
musk to produce uplifting
sativa effects. One specific phenotype
is noted for having a pungent
odor that fills a room, similar to burning incense.


3. 501st OG

Characteristics of 501st OG
:

501st OG, bred by Rare Dankness, is an indica
-dominant hybrid
that crosses Skywalker OG
with Rare Dankness #1. The colorful flowers are tinged with a wide spectrum of green, blue, red, and purple hues that give off a deep piney
Kush
aroma that mixes with the sweetness
of grape
flavors. The potent indica effects make 501st OG a great nighttime strain to help with pain
relief and trouble sleeping
.


4. Blueberry Essence

Characteristics of Blueberry Essence
:

Blueberry Essence is a high-CBD
cannabis strain bred by Life Gardens in Washington. The undisclosed genetics produce purple buds that come with a mellow, fruity
aroma and an earthy
aftertaste that entices medical marijuana patients with its ability to combat an array of symptoms and conditions. Blueberry Essence relaxes
away pain
with a tingly
sensation that reverberates throughout your extremities, providing a calming sense of bliss that eventually levels off to help induce sleep
.


5. Burkle

Characteristics of Burkle
:

Burkle is an indica
-dominant hybrid
that crosses Pre-98 Bubba Kush
with Granddaddy Purple
(though some claim it to be Purple Urkle
based on the name). The result is a powerfully relaxing
indica that consumes the body with calming effects that ease away pain
and induce sleep
. Burkle is great for a lazy evening at home, but not so great for being productive. Its sweet
flavor profile is a blend of spiced
licorice aromas and an earthy
peppermint aftertaste. This strain is known to produce a case of the munchies which makes it a good choice for those suffering from a lack of an appetite
.
