This week we are dropping a couple Cookies and Cream crosses from the good folks over at Exotic Genetix: Sizzurp (Spirit in The Sky x Cookies and Cream) and Bootylicious (Constantine x Cookies and Cream). Both combine complementary physical and mental effects that are enhanced by their Cookies and Cream father.

We’re also showcasing a few up-and-coming cuts from Oregon Cannabis Authority. OCA shares a few choice flowers that utilize tried-and-true cannabis genetics like OG KushChemdawg, and GG4. Keep an eye out for Magellan, Sidetracked, and Heatwave in the Oregon cannabis market.

Sizzurp Leafly cannabis strain tile   Sizzurp

Sizzurp by Exotic Genetix is a 60/40 indica-dominant hybrid created by crossing a Spirit in The Sky mother with a Cookies and Cream father. According to Excotic, Sizzurp benefits from a sea of green (SOG) setup as a multi-topped bush, and has a 63-day flowering time. Its name is derived from its aroma, which the breeder likens to a mixture of grape cough syrup, fruity hard candy, and lemon-lime soda.

Bootylicious by Exotic Genetix is another exciting Cookies and Cream cross from the crew out of Washington State. This strain is a cross of Constantine (Orange Valley OG x The Cube) and Cookies and Cream. Bootylicious has a tantalizing aroma of frosted cupcakes and freshly pumped gas which fills the room upon combustion. It produces an above average yield over its 9-week flowering cycle.

Confidential Cookies Leafly cannabis strain tile   Confidential Cookies

Confidential Cookies by Mad Scientist Genetics is a sedative strain with a one-two punch. This combination of Confidential Cheese and Dream Cookie creates a fascinating terpene profile that blends sourness and sweetness. Its effects hit the head with a rush of THC, but inevitably settle into a deep, soothing body high that allays pain and stress. Confidential Cookies has an average 63-day flowering cycle.

Boss OG Leafly cannabis strain tile   Boss OG

Boss OG by Dark Heart Nursery is a fragrant OG Kush phenotype with similar qualities to Fire OG. This strain emits telltale OG aromas of lemon, lime, and fuel, and offers consumers happy, relaxing effects that can trim away stress and pain. Boss OG produces an abundance of cannabis buds over its 9 to 10 week flowering cycle, so DHN recommends that growers double trellising for added stability. Its generous yield and excellent flavor make Boss OG a rewarding grow for intermediate cultivators.

Heatwave Leafly cannabis strain tile   Heatwave

Created by Oregon Cannabis Authority, Heatwave is a cross between an original THC Bomb cut and an old school Chemdawg. Heatwave’s rich terpene profile reeks of spicy, musky earth with just a hint of diesel, and the stout plants offer up decent yields for their squat morphology. This hybrid’s effects tend to be relaxing without being overly sedating, making it a solid choice for consumers seeking relief from insomnia, restlessness, and anxiety.

Sidetracked Leafly cannabis strain tile   Sidetracked

Sidetracked by Oregon Cannabis Authority was created from popular and potent genetics. This strain combines Silver Train (a cross of Super Silver Haze x Trainwreck) and GG4 to amplify trichome production and overall headiness. Sidetracked emits a musky, skunky aroma with herbal undertones that preface the strain’s relaxed body buzz and mental aloofness. Anticipate happy and relaxing effects that linger in the mind and encourage sporadic bouts of engagement and creativity.

Magellan Leafly cannabis strain tile   Magellan

Magellan by Oregon Cannabis Authority is a stimulating hybrid created for cannabis-forward creatives and explorers. This invigorating cross of OCA’s Cloud 9 and GG4 hits like a ton of bricks, putting a euphoric sizzle in the mind and a heavy-hitting buzz in the body. As the initial effects temper, the high becomes headier and uplifting, making this strain an excellent choice for social gatherings, brainstorming, and outdoor activity. When combined with these activities, Magellan can help alleviate depression and stress. Magellan also offers a unique aroma of fresh strawberries with a bright, piney undertone.
