Welcome back to Leafly’s New Strains Alert and the weird temporal phenomenon called “daylight savings time.”
Regardless of whether you lost an hour or live in the world where time is a human construct, new strains continue to sprout around the globe.
This week we’ve added a whole grip of cuts out of Oregon, as well as two new Diesel crosses and two new Grape Ape hybrids.
Gassy terpenes are widely sought after, and for good reason! Champagne Diesel and Buddha’s Tooth both bring a piece of the Diesel lineage to the party, enhancing the aroma and effects of Champagne and Blue Dream, respectively.
Grape flavor or “purple” flavor is another popular quality in fine cannabis, and Grape Ape has it in abundance. This aromatic attribute adds depth and dimension to Dark Shadow Haze and Mountain Girl in Mountain Girl x Grape Ape.
As always, if you’ve had the pleasure of trying any of these unique genetics, leave a review and help inform the community!
Buddha’s Tooth is an uplifting, social strain created by Phantom Farms. It’s a cross of the ever-popular Blue Dream and the hippie-dippy Diesel strain, Dharma Diesel. This sativa-dominant cross offers invigorating physical and mental effects as well as an enticing floral aroma, making Buddha’s Tooth an excellent option for social gatherings. These stimulating effects also imbue the consumer with cerebral energy that keeps the mind more or less clear while playfully prodding creativity.
Mighty Quin from Phantom Farms is an uplifting cross of CBD-dominant and THC-dominant strains. Bred from Harlequin and City of God, this strain is a mixture of old world cannabis genetics and physically stimulating attributes. Mighty Quin’s cerebral energy puts a luster on even mundane tasks, making them a little more interesting and engaging. It has a sweet, forest flavor that opens with notes of fruit and sage on the palate. Enjoy Mighty Quin for its pleasant euphoria and complex herbaceous flavors.
Created by Rare Dankness, Dark Shadow Haze is an introspective strain that combines the fruity, sedative attributes of Grape Ape with Nevil’s Wreck (Arcata Trainwreck x Neville’s Haze). This strain’s thought-provoking cerebral high and calming physical sensations cement the consumer in place, creating a deeply contemplative mental state. Dark Shadow Haze also offers the tasty flavors and aromas of sugar-coated grapes and berries with an earthy undertone.
Gorilla Snacks by Heroes of The Farm is an odoriferous passion project that combines two extremely resinous strains. Its lineage is a mixture of GG4 and Guinness, a Scooby Snacks F3 backcross that took well over a year to develop. This strain naturally creates an abundance of trichomes, giving the plant a stunning appearance. Gorilla Snacks has a strong aroma with pungent notes of pine, herbs, and sweetness. Enjoy Gorilla Snacks when you have some free time, as this strain’s powerful buzz may steer you away from strenuous mental or physical activity.
Champagne Diesel is a tasty combination of Sour Diesel and Champagne. Both strains are well-known for their effects and aromas. Sour Diesel mixes its pungent chemical fragrance and heady stimulation with Champagne’s relaxing physical high and enjoyable sweet flavor to create a winning combination that is greater than the sum of its parts. This bud’s frosty appearance and bright orange stigma contrast against its light green foliage, giving the plant an alluring appearance alongside a sweet and pungent smell.
Mountain Girl x Grape Ape by Pilot Farm is a heavy hybrid cross that combines the herbal, earthy aroma of Mountain Girl with the grape flavor of Grape Ape. The effects are a mixture of heavy physical relaxation, stress relief, and appetite stimulation, making Mountain Girl x Grape Ape a fantastic strain for the end of the day. Its sedative effects compound with continued consumption, offering a steady descent into restfulness.
Candyland x Chernobyl is a flavorful combination of potent opposites. Candyland’s happy, uplifting buzz and sweet, floral aroma blends with Chernobyl’s citrus-forward flavor and pleasant physical effects. All together, this strain pulls from a massive range of complementary genetics including Trainwreck, Jack the Ripper, Trinity, Granddaddy Purple, and Platinum Cookies. Candyland x Chernobyl is a solid option for consumers looking to improve their mood while muting stress and pain.
