New Strains Alert: Chocolate Tonic, Blackberry Fire, Commerce City Kush, and More
Hello! Happy Friday and welcome back to another New Strains Alert!
This week we have four indicas from Rare Dankness and three hybrid strains from Purple Caper Seeds. While these cultivators are representing two of the three convenient categories of cannabis available to consumers, the strains within each category are quite eclectic. For example, the hybrid Chocolate Tonic is a potent 1:1 CBD strain that combines the flavorful terpenes and Kush attributes with the medicinal benefits of Cannatonic, while the indica CBD OX takes a more weighted, sedative approach while also remaining primarily medicinal.
