Cannabis in Alberta, (ok, ok, cannabis in Canada) is ever changing. Lots of new products hit our shelves on the regular, but we don’t often have the time to go into is as much as we’d like. So here are some of Mimi’s top picks for new products coming in-store this Weednesday, June 16th 2021.
BC God Bud by Verse
Verse is hitting the market with a new ounce bag. We’re always stoked to see big bags at a small price. But their BC God Bud caught our eye because of the frostiness we saw on candid online reviews.
Here’s what Verse has to say about it:
Meet BC God Bud, hand selected, dried cannabis by Verse Originals. BC God Bud is an indica-dominant strain and has flavour that consists of tropical fruit with undertones of berry, lavender and pine produced by lead terpenes: caryophyllene, bisabolol, and humulene.
Flo by Divvy
Divvy has been making a name for itself with their multipack of 12 Sour Kush Pre-rolls. While we weren’t able to grab any of those this week, we did manage to score some Flo. It’s a high THC cultivar that shows lots of promises when you realize what its lineage is:
Go with the Flo. A cross between Afghani Indica and Purple Thai, this high-THC, sativa-leaning hybrid has some serious bag appeal. And it smells positively bananas, owing its sweet aroma to its unique terpene profile dominated by terpinolene and rounded out by myrcene and beta-caryophyllene. Its large spearhead-shaped buds boast a tight, dense structure flecked with copper calyxes, while its flavour is a blend of sweet citrus with earthy hints of pine.
New Cannabis in Alberta: Gorilla Berry by GreenSeal
Lastly, we’d like you to meet GreenSeal! We always love scouring the internet for the best cannabis in Canada. So when we found out one of their co-founders is their master grower, we couldn’t resist bringing them in. In fact, Chad Morphy got recognized as “Canada’s Top Grower” by Grow Opportunity magazine in 2019.
“…the province of Alberta really loves cannabis, especially high quality flower and pre-rolls from local retailers.”Greenseal News, Alberta Announcement
Their first foray into Alberta includes the Gorilla Berry that we snagged in both the 3.5g and 3-pack pre-rolls.
After testing hundreds of Gorilla Berry seedlings for terpene levels, bud structure, and potency, GreenSeal’s intensive genetic selection program (aka phenotype hunt) discovered this true unicorn – a rare find combining the sweet, fruity flavours of blueberries and citrus notes. Upon opening a container of Gorilla Berry, the immediate sensation is the unforgettable smell of a freshly baked blueberry pie cooling on the windowsill. When consumed, the rich mix of terpenes (headlined by tart pinene and balanced with peppery caryophyllene and musky myrcene) mingle to impart more subtle earthy and spicy flavours beneath the unmistakably sweet berry overtones.
