Strain Predictions for 2017

from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2iJWEiv Here’s my best guess for popular strains and crosses in the coming months. for 2017. As we all know, Cannabis projects are a test of patience but this is what I see on the horizon. Very interested to hear what you all see catching on in the next year. Let me know…

Can’t stop admiring the packaging of @strikeyourfortune pre-rolls. From the foil stamped box to the gold wrapped joint in a corked travel tube. The hidden sticker to the all black pack of included matches. This pack turns heads! It wouldn’t hurt to add a box or two to your NYE spread this year. Fortune’s a conversation piece in your pocket and luckily there’s plenty to share. Grab a pack and exit 2016 with grace and a bit of style. ๐Ÿ“ธ: Brenda Rose @stumptowngreen

I got my first taste of Blueberry Cookies sharing a joint with @brookimats and I was instantly on the look out. Few flowers can carry that berry fruit flavor all the way through combustion and into the exhale. Luckily, I found this beautiful 3 gram bud in the jars @farma_pdx and had the chance to take proper notes. I’ve looked at a lot of Cookie crosses and most winners lean heavily toward the cookie end of the spectrum. This is the best of both worlds with dense, colorful buds and a pungent berry nose. First impression is super sweet. Some naturally flavored grape fruit snacks, juicy tart cherry. A whiff of bread that lends to a scent that reminds me of those gigantic blueberry muffins you get at Costco. Just a hint of that new car, oiled leather note typically found in Cookie strains. I was really surprised by the mouth coating flavor of this flower. Excellent in a joint, this flower really excels in a bong where you can get a nice lungful of flavorful flower and then pack another fresh one. @yerba.buena.farms seems to be focusing on flavorful strains and this one does not disappoint. ๐Ÿ“:@farma_pdx ๐ŸŒฑ: @yerba.buena.farms ๐Ÿ“ธ: @stumptowngreen

Oh my! This Sour Star cultivated by @jay_plantspeaker_ is an absolute cacophony of subtle scents and aggressive funk. If burning sage is cleansing I feel like torching a little Sour Star must be downright purifying. That dichotomy of typically ‘good’ scents standing out against the backbone of ‘bad’. At first, you catch the funk. Wild onion, garlic scape, chem fuel funk, burning rubber. Oiled machinery and dank diesel fuel. Then dive deeper and those sweet diesel fumes break into lovely characteristics of lilac, honeyed cake donut, raw ginger and toasted marshmallow. The slightly caramelized sugars of Cotton Candy and a hint of lime zest. Stacks and stacks of unreal scents leave my fingers sticky with notes of fermenting fruit. The King Kong version of Gorilla Glue, this Sour Star excites the palate and shows how multi-layered the aroma of cannabis can be. I can only imagine the varied collection of terpenes, esters, and cannabinoids present. The effect is mood lifting, possibly confidence building. After each exhale the word ‘fantastic’ comes to mind. Chef David Chang insists that something is perfectly salted when your brain can’t decide if it has too much or too little salt. That’s how I feel about the Sour Star, it’s so complex that my mind wants to keep working on it. According to Chang, that’s what makes excellent food so compelling, it keeps you thinking after each bite. The Sour Star is a perfect example of a strain you just can’t stop dreaming about. Best yet, this is grown entirely of our Terroir. A shining example of Oregon’s craft ethos, ready to fill the air with a pleasantly purifying funk. ๐Ÿ“ธ๐ŸŒฑ@jay_plantspeaker_

Here, smell this. The animalistic musk funk of this Sour Monkey by @jay_plantspeaker_ is unreal. In perfume, musky earth smells are added as fixatives and base notes. There’s something about that primal body odor that tickles our reptile brain. It’s body and it’s sweat and it’s sex. The Musk ox was nearly hunted to extinction because of it’s attractive, rank scent that it produces during mating season. Jay’s Sour Monkey from @goldencoastgenetics stands out as one of the most aromatic, funky strains I’ve come across. Digging in I find a relative sweetness to this funk. A bit of over sweetened coffee, caramel and waffle cone notes rise from the grinder as a few buds take a whirl and grind down into sticky bits that make rolling a joint easier than it should be. Tart note of hibiscus tea, sour and mellow but rounder than any citrus. Dried apricot and cherry flavors play off the tea notes and reinforce the caramel base. Base amber wood scent that evokes cologne or an earthy unburned Palo Santo. A forest floor funk that’s both rot and clean new growth. The scent is attractive and off-putting and mysterious. It demands closer inspection. I could wax poetic over the candied dirt smell and the whiff of industrial cleaner or I could just call you over to experience it for yourself. Come here, smell this. ๐Ÿ“ธ๐ŸŒฑ:@jay_plantspeaker_ #greengoddessgardens
