Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Created by Greenhouse Strain Hunters, White Lemon crosses Super Lemon Haze with El Niño. Lemon aromas are accompanied by wood and spicy incense notes, making this a treat for your nose. Effects tend to reflect a heightened mental clarity followed by a comforting and relaxing body high. White Lemon is great for anyone looking to feel crisp and clear while exploring a quiet and relaxed activity.

From the OCS website, ” Thumbs Up Brand Strain Hunters® White Lemon™ is an indoor-grown, balanced sativa-indica hybrid with high THC content. The strain is a cross of El Nino and Super Lemon Haze. The flower exhibits intense aromas of lemon and spice. Dominant terpenes include caryophyllene, terpinolene, and humulene.

Hello Sunshine

White Lemon is the creation of Franco Lajo, Strain Hunter, who also created the iconic Super Lemon Haze.  Franco Loja died on January 2, 2017,  within 72 hours of contracting an aggressive form of fulminant cerebral malaria in the Congo while working on a CBD treatment for malaria.   For us, this was a high anticipated review.

Our 0.26 grams gave us a strong jolt into the day.  For the first half hour after inhalation, we were caught in time dilation and neuronic fireworks.   With a cup of coffee in one hand, our consciousness elevated and the World becomes much more inviting.  The White Lemon World is where the Sun beams with bright optimism as the future unfolds in a kaleidoscope of possibilities.   There is a tremendous sense of positive anticipation and purpose creating happiness.  At only 16.18%, the entourage force is strong in this one … a powerful weapon against the dark forces in our lives.  Yea, we like strains like this.

The “high” last a solid two hours with the last hour in slightly hazier mental state marking a pleasant soft landing.  We ended feeling very chill and relax after two hours.

Activity pairing for a vibrant lively sativa is anything you wish.  We found it perfect with coffee at start the day?   As part of our review protocol, every strain is tested with coffee first thing in the morning once … even the Indicas.  White Lemon is made for that first puff with coffee where our day just lights up with great anticipation and unbounded joy.

The legal cannabis industry is a tough industry to date.  TREC Brands with Wink, Blissed and Thumbs Up is based on a business model of brand building.  Clearly, picking the right strain is a critical part of a successful cannabis venture.   The other part of the execution is picking a partner who can grow.  And finally,  the product needs to be profitable for all parties involved and priced competitively.  There is a lot of moving parts outside of each players’ control.  We have to say this White Lemon by Thumbs Up is well executed.

On an investment note, Thumbs Up contract growers to produce their products.   From a value add perspective, the strains selected is the value add.  Packaged on March 17, 2020 a month before our purchase, the flower is fresh and spicy lemon scented.  We give Thumbs Up! to the grower on a job well done.  The TREC team looks like an interesting group of young talents with Trang Trinh, Basem Hanna, Charles Kabouth and Matt Shalhoub.  They have chosen the right strains and grower to make their mark. And, they are approachable for private investors ….
