Strain Integrity

From the OCS website, “ This wild mash-up proves that opposites do attract, the citrusy Grapefruit lures the pungent GG for a balanced fruity and earthy dance.Grapefruit GG1 is a cross between Grapefruit, a Sativa, and GG, a potent hybrid. The cone-shaped buds are green and gold with amber pistils and crystal trichomes. This wild mash-up proves that opposites do attract, the citrusy Grapefruit lures the pungent GG for a balanced fruity and earthy dance.

On Grapefruit, according to Leafly, ” This potent sativa was developed by crossing Cinderella 99 with a fast-flowering sativa selected for its rich grapefruit flavor. The tropical, citrus smell of Grapefruit mixes with energetic effects to give you a happy stress-reliever that also works well for battling migraines.

According to Leafly, ” Original Glue (GG4), developed by GG Strains, is a potent hybrid strain that delivers heavy-handed euphoria and relaxation, leaving you feeling “glued” to the couch. Its chunky, resin-covered buds fill the room with pungent earthy and sour aromas inherited from its parent strains, Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. Taking first place in both the Michigan and Los Angeles 2014 Cannabis Cups as well as the High Times Jamaican World Cup, this multiple award-winning hybrid’s supremacy is no longer a secret, and consumers will search far and wide to get their hands sticky with Original Glue (GG4).

Finally A Grapefruit

After our review of Hash Plant, we thought we would never go near another Emerald product.  Here we are reviewing Grapefruit GG1 by Emerald health Therapeutics.  Packaged on June 3, 2020, with 21.2% THC smelling lemony with a hint of spice, this Grapefruit cost $29.95 for 3.5 grams.  This strain was grown by Verdélite, a recently acquired Quebec based Craft Grower by Emerald.  We are excited.

The “high” starts to ramp after the inhalation session ends.  It takes about 5 minutes before we felt the real lift marked by light euphoria increasing at a very noticeable pace.  At the 8 minute mark, our consciousness opened the creative flood gates drowning us with optimism.  Time dilation is very strong.  By the 15 minute mark, we were fully immersed in an uplifting vibrantly colourful world.  Intensity continues to increase towards the 20 minute mark.  This is a premium effect “high.”

Our test amount was 0.26 grams.  After 40 minutes, the intensity begins to ebb to a functional state, which was welcomed after an intense reality disorientation.  The cruising part of the “high” was a smooth energy flow with a happy and creative disposition.  We became a lot more productive.

Activity pairing for this energetic strain is limited only by our imagination.  Lower dosing is advisable for productive applications.

On an investment note, it is interesting to see economists rethinking the globalization mantra after a pandemic.  We are in the midst of shifting global supply chain to regional supply chain.  Apparently, getting “China” to build everything for everyone is a really bad idea.  Is it better to have smaller supply chains that can be more sustainable and responsive even if it cost a bit more?   Is it better to have 88,000 sq. ft production instead of 1.1 million sq. ft. X 2?  Just wondering ….
