Like a fine wine, it owes its unique characteristics to its parent strains. 

Think of it as a lovechild of cannabis genetics that inherited the best traits of each parent. 


Unraveling the tapestry of weed can be like tracing the bloodline of royalty, and this one is no exception.

 It has become especially popular on the West Coast, Colorado, and Michigan

This weed was a hit, winning accolades at Green Cups and the High Times Medical Cup

That’s this weed for you.
