New Strains Alert: Gummo, Gas Mask, Nuclear Cookies, and MoreJeremiah WilhelmNovember 10, 2017
This week we are sharing some local genetics, including a double-dose of Sherbet with two distinct lineages, a Chernobyl x GSC (f.k.a Girl Scout Cookies) cross (for all the Cookies fans), and much more.
I had the pleasure of sampling Gummo, another new addition, and I cannot recommend it enough. The well-rounded strain has perfect hybrid effects, while the terpene profile was pleasurable and nuanced. The Orange Kush Breath was also a strain I tried firsthand, and woah! This strain’s terpene profile was unusual, but was true to its name. And yes, I mean it smelled like old man breath intermixed with funky citrus notes. This made the strain’s aroma challenging, but also made it stand out.

Gas Mask by Pacific NW Roots is a funky strain with an aroma so pungent, you might need a gas mask. Created by backcrossing a Cherry Pie and Alien Kush F2 hybrid, Gas Mask reeks of fuel with a distant note of overripe citrus. This strain was created through a collaboration with Exotic Genetix, a Pacific Northwest mainstay. Gas Mask has an 8 to 9 week flowering period and a medium-sized yield for attentive growers.

Northwest Pineapple is an indica-dominant hybrid created by crossing the timeless classic Northern Lights and the fruit-forward Oregon Pineapple. It has an enticing aroma of sweet, earthy pineapple with a Haze-like undertone. The taste is delicious, offering consumers a hint of citrus that intensifies upon exhaling. This strain expresses large, fluffy spade-shaped buds with mint green foliage and a thick layer of amber hairs. Northwest Pineapple has a happy and uplifting high that easily improves mood while going easy on the body.
