It’s a busy time of year between gatherings with loved ones, preparing large meals to share, and shopping for the holidays. You may have missed some of the great strains available now from Flora Farms. But fear not, we’re going to tell you all about them!
Critical Plus 2.0
Critical Plus 2.0 is a double-deep cross of Critical Plus. This Indica strain is known to buzz the body with tingles, and then it uplifts the mind to a state of bliss. Great for evening use. Expect a pungent aroma of lemon, incense, and exotic wood thanks to terpenes like myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene. Smoke tastes like citrus pine with herbal notes. A patient-favorite, this strain is a Flora Farms staple available statewide in Missouri.
Terpene highlight: Limonene is a zesty superstar, and one of the most abundant terpenes to occur in cannabis, produced in the flower’s resin glands. It uplifts and boosts moods, improves mental health by reducing stress and anxiety, and has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and even anti-cancer properties. The fragrance of citrus fruit peels is comprised mostly of limonene, so you’d be correct to assume that this terpene takes its name from the lemon.
Durban Thai is a cross of Durban Poison x Thai landrace. This Sativa strain delivers a heavy hit of creative energy and mental lift. It can help clear the mind of negative thoughts and open the mind to greater possibilities. It’s a great strain for daytime use and focusing on creative projects. The aroma will let you know if this is the strain for you with notes of sour fruit, earth, and mint. Smoke tastes of berries with a hint of mint thanks to terpenes like pinene, myrcene, and nerolidol.
Terpene highlight: Myrcene has a long and storied history as a useful folk medicine that aids with sleep and relaxation. From Mexico to Brazil to Germany, teas and supplements containing myrcene have been used to help reduce pain, relax muscles and calm anxieties. Myrcene is found in hops, lemongrass, basil, and mangoes, and has a delightful earthy and fruity aroma. In addition to its usefulness as a sedative, myrcene has shown powerful anti-inflammatory and anticatabolic effects in humans. Although myrcene is common and abundant in many cannabis strains, its medicinal value to the patient cannot be overlooked.
Gelato is a cross of Sunset Sherbet x Thin Mint GSC. While often cited as a balanced hybrid, we find the effects start to lean Indica at higher doses. After consumption, Gelato creates a sense of balance between body and mind, slowing racing thoughts and calming the body. We love this strain for relaxing afternoons or weekends. The aroma, which combines ripe berries, citrus, and earth, is a fan-favorite thanks to terpenes like nerolidol, myrcene, and limonene. Smoke tastes of lavender and sweet fruit.
Terpene highlight: Nerolidol packs a powerful aromatic and floral punch of rose and citrus and is so abundant in aroma it is used as a food flavoring agent and fragrance in perfumes. It is prevalent in neroli, jasmine, lavender, and tea tree. Beyond its aromatic appeal, the therapeutic and medicinal benefits of nerolidol are plentiful.
Nerolidol is a natural sedative, anti-anxiety, antimicrobial, anti-parasitic, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal, and anti-cancer compound full of pain-relieving properties. Studies have shown it to also be an insect repellent when applied topically. Seek out this terpene for its overall calming effects and enjoy all the added benefits this powerful terpene provides.
