Saluations and welcome back! This week we are sharing a few flavorful cuts from Insanity Strains as well as a some user-submitted strains from cannabis consumers just like you.

Brain Candy, Hannibal Nectar, and The Loops take up the Insanity Strains roster for this week. These strains lean predominantly on indica genetics to create luscious physical effects and pungent terpene profiles that linger in the air long after the flower is torched. These strains are juxtaposed against flavorful OG cuts like Banana Cream OG and Blood Orange Kush, which also emit pungent aromas that stimulate the senses. For those looking for a more fuel-forward experience, look no further than BCN Diesel and the powerful Chemdawg cross, Cackleberry.

Read up on these strains below and see if any pique your interest!

These uplifting effects settle down into the body over time and eventually lead to couch-lock with continued consumption.

Blood Orange Kush

Blood Orange Kush is an indica-dominant cross of, as of now, the unknown or unnamed genetics Aota x Pinecracker and an unnamed OG. This plant has a bushy structure that doesn’t yield much, but the dense, trichome-covered nugs are prized for their bright terpene profile and heavy effects. Blood Orange Kush emits a bouquet of gas and tart citrus that fills the room and coats the palate. Its uplifting mental buzz and relaxing physical effects make Blood Orange Kush a solid option for consumers looking to abate minor pain and elevate mood.

BCN Diesel Leafly cannabis strain tile
BCN Diesel

BCN Diesel by Kannabia Seed Company is a pungent hybrid cross of familiar and potent genetics. Created by crossing NYC Diesel and Black Domina, this strain produces dense, bullet-shaped buds that stink of citrus and fuel. It achieves this bud structure and density through the addition of Black Domina while the NYC Diesel contributes to the strain’s heady, energetic buzz. BCN Diesel has a snappy 8 week flower time, but has been known to benefit from an extra week for maximum yield and potency.

Cackleberry Leafly cannabis strain tile

Cackleberry by Greenpoint Seeds is a fuel-driven, fruit-forward hybrid that offers consumers potency in both aroma and effect. It was created by crossing Cherry Diesel and Stardawg. This combination compounds the cherry cough syrup, ammonia, and fuel aromas of Cherry Diesel against the deep chemical and fuel aromas of Stardawg. Greenpoint Seeds set out to improve upon the base genetics of this strain, and Cackleberry hits the mark. Its fruity terpenes and powerful euphoric buzz make it a worthwhile addition to any smoke circle.
