New and Noteworthy Cannabis Products: September 8th, 2021

The best part about long weekends is that people who come and visit us on holidays like Labour Day are pretty relaxed and chill. We’re able to take a bit more time to chat, and customers feel more at ease to ask questions. I then get to geek out on my favourite topic: cannabis products. We also got to deep dive into a couple of terpene profiles with some regulars, which helped them get a better experience – and gave me insight as to what products they might like.

It’s super easy to shop by indica and sativa. Further, we curate our menu such that if a product reads as indica, you can expect that it’ll be couch friendly, whereas the sativa products we carry are generally good for daytime use. Want to enjoy your experience across the cannabis spectrum? Keep track of what you consume! Then, we can help match up which terpenes seem to feature the most in your rotation.

A Few Fave Cannabis Products

The Ultimate by Smoker Farms, sold via Joint Ventures

As discussed in last week’s blog, Joint Ventures sells cannabis from micro-growers from around Canada. As they’re making room for new cannabis products, they’re discounting their existing premium inventory at prices that are, quite frankly, a steal.

Smoker Farms grows cannabis products in the naturally unparalleled Kootenay Boundary country of British Columbia

The Ultimate is a prime example: Kept fresh in a tuna-can container, I was amazed at the size of a nug in the container. It clocked in at a whopping 2.86g and looks absolutely gorgeous in the display. The cannabis feels and sounds a touch on the dry side before manipulation. Once you have it in hand, it squishes well, making me think that it’d be quite nice rolled up. Nugs are dense and tightly packed, with decent trichome coverage.

“Growing in rock wool on flood tables within their 200m2 of cultivation space, Jeff has focussed on two strains early on, The Ultimate, and a Master Kush Ultra he says he’s been growing for 15 years.“

Smoker Farms brings legacy experience to the micro market, StratCann

Fans of old school MK Ultra will be pleased as punch to go on a trip with this lovely lady: its genetics are very similar, but it boasts a terpene profile very different from the MK Ultra cannabis products that we’ve seen on the regulated market: leading out with spicy caryophyllene, it tapers off with fruity farnesene and citrusy limonene for a smiley evening in front of the TV or board games.

Our harvest process includes hanging the product to dry and all our product is meticulously finished by hand to create our beautiful product!

The Vault (34th Street Cookies) by 34th Street, sold via Viridis

One of the first local growers to hit our shelves, Edmonton-based Viridis has been wowing us with fresh cannabis products and incredible attention to detail since the get go. Viridis is a microgrower who hyper-specializes in what they do best. Every once in a while, they help some friends out (like Alberta Bud, who have their Uppercut Punch and their Slurface sold via Viridis). 34th Street currently sells seeds in Alberta under their own brand. However, to get their cannabis flower products to retailers, they work with Viridis.

All that to say that the newest batch of product we got in includes The Vault. It’s 34th Street’s phenotype of Cookies. It’s an Indica-dominant cross between OG Kush x Pink Kush x Forum Cut Cookies. This Cookies’ genetics produce a smaller apical (read: small nugs, high THC) resulting in dense, deep green buds flecked with amber trichomes & crystals. 

Most impressively? These beautiful ladies hit a total of 4.20% terpenes, with a super interesting mix of caryophyllene, humulene and farnesene.

Fun Farnesene Fact!

A lot of people say that farnesene smells like a somewhat familiar fruit. I associate the smell with quince. In Mexico, we call the fruit membrillo. It’s a sweetish smell with a touch of astringency, reminiscent of it’s pome kin, like apples and pears. If you want to try some, you can pick up some fresh quince at your local Italian Centre Shop since they’re in season. Cook the quince, either by poaching it or baking it in a pie. Alternatively, quince paste is delicious: serve it with charcuteries. Oh, and you can also find Farnesene in quince, apple and pear peels. Which is why we use a green apple as the farnesene icon.

Other Cannabis we’re excited about:

  • Strawberry Banana multipack of prerolls by Poolboy; special shout out to Brooklyn who’s been showing us how to build up cultivar-inspired outfits
  • BC God Bud by verse is back in stock (and always makes me think of Oh my Love by The Score)
