New Strains Alert: American Beauty, River Song, Lucifer OG, and More
Leafly’s New Strains Alert is an ongoing series that announces cannabis strains recently added to our database. Leave a rating and review for any you’ve tried, or find out if a strain is available in your area, by clicking through to the strain page.
This week’s New Strains Alert is comprised of an herbaceous troupe of funky flowers. Many of these strains come along with strong appetite ignition, like Blue J and NukeHeads.
Cannabis-induced appetite stimulation is both a gift and a curse. Here are a few hints to enjoy your cannabis-inspired snack consumption without overdoing it:
- Set out designated portions of different foods. This provides the appearance of abundance and a diversity of flavors while limiting you to a reasonable amount of popcorn, candy, instant-waffles with peanut butter and syrup, etc.
- Drink lots of water. Sometimes our appetites are aroused because we’re dehydrated. Guzzle a cup of water before taking your next hit or next round of snacks, and your stomach will thank you.
- Brush your teeth! Even if it’s the middle of the day, the clean sensation of freshly brushed teeth will stop or slow your unending snack binge.
As always, if you’ve had a chance to try any of these strains, share your experience in a review. Sharing knowledge is what Leafly is all about!
Blue J is a cross of TGA Subcool’s Jillybean and Oregon Blue by Heroes of The Farm. Raised by Geek Farms, this potent cross combines exceptionally flavorful West Coast genetics to create a unique strain with robust and stable attributes. It boasts a freshly baked blueberry muffin aroma that fills the room with sweet, herbaceous smoke. Blue J is a solid option for cannabis consumers looking to stimulate their appetite and invigorate their mind.
River Song by Geek Farms is a fruit-forward mashup of Blue J and Dr. Who. Geek Farm’s proprietary Blue J strain contributes sweet, fruity flavors to Dr. Who’s earthy, berry overtones, creating a sugary bouquet of dark fruit and berries. River Song lulls the consumer’s mind into a calm, hazy state that mutes stress and anxiety. But beware, this strain can dismantle motivation, making it a carefree treat to be strategically savored near the end of the day.
Wabanaki is a clear-headed, creative flower created by Organigram of Canada. Offering high levels of the terpenes pinene, caryophyllene and myrcene, Wabanaki is often an excellent strain for boosting energy. Its aroma is a dense mixture of earthy, woody odors while the flavor is smooth and herbal. Wabanaki, which loosely translates to “People of the First Light,” represents a First Nations confederation of five Algonquian-speaking nations near the Eastern seaboard of Canada.
American Beauty is a Plushberry x Plushberry cross created by Mr. Underground as an ode to TGA Subcool’s famous and flavorful flower. This strain emits fruity, tropical aromas that translate nicely to the palate, lingering long after the exhale. It finishes flowering in 8 to 9 weeks, and has been known to yield over a pound per plant when produced in optimal growing conditions. American Beauty’s effects vacillate between happy and sleepy, giving the consumer a lucid, giggly mindset and a warm, weighted sensation in the body.
NukeHeads is a bold and varied hybrid created by NukeHeads’ owner and breeder, Cody Oebel. Known to produce massive plants, NukeHeads emits a primarily citrus and herbal aroma, giving off notes of lemon and hops. The strain’s flavor is tart and pungent, exhibiting skunky flavors with herbal undertones. Its effects tend to stimulate appetite and imbue consumers with a giggly aura.
Lucifer OG by Karma Genetics is the devilish offspring of a Hell’s OG mother and a backcrossed SFV OG Kush male. Emitting the classic kush aroma of pine and forest floor, this strain tends to grow larger than its parents and offers an ample, resinous harvest after its 9 to 11 week flowering time. Lucifer OG’s mid-level euphoria helps dissolve stress while its compounding physical relaxation helps mitigate minor aches and pains.
Biker Kush by Karma Genetics is a blend that combines potent and flavorful elements from famously potent parents. Created by crossing Hell’s OG and Lucifer OG (Hell’s OG x SFV OG Kush), Biker Kush pays homage to California cannabis propagators and their intermingling genetics. This stretchy plant produces dense, deep green buds that reek of lemon Pine-Sol and lush, floral earth. Biker Kush has a 9 to 11 week flowering time and a high THC content.
