New Strains Alert: Cali Jack, Ultra Banana, Blue Wonder, and More
This week’s New Strains Alert is stacked high with fruity genetics. Grape Calyx by Calyx Garden is a nuanced complex of strains that has been in development since 2012 and offers deep Kush and Cookies elements for the refined cannabis connoisseur. Ninja Fruit from our pals at Ocean Grown Seeds reeks of a phenomenal Haze and delivers sweet flavors of grape and grapefruit. Ultra Banana synthesizes the best of MK Ultra’s heady, psychedelic effects and effortlessly blends them with Banana Kush’s fruity relaxation. Grab a bud (or buddies), pinch off a stinky snapper, and indulge in the fantastic foliage of your favorite strain alongside fall’s changing colors.
Cali Jack by Medicanna Seeds is a potent union of polar opposites. Jack Herer, the sativa-dominant king of clear-minded motivation, comes together with Pre-98 Bubba Kush, a classic West Coast indica dynamo with a heavy body and laidback demeanor, to form a strain with powerful and unique properties. Exhibiting stimulating cerebral effects coupled with a body-heavy indica punch, Cali Jack can help relieve migraines, nausea, anxiety, and fibromyalgia symptoms.
Grape Calyx by Calyx Garden is a strain with deep roots in a half-dozen genetic parents. Calyx Garden has been breeding this strain since 2012 and began by crossing Durban Poison and Master Kush. The cross was then combined with SFV OG, which was then bred with Platinum GSC (f.k.a Girl Scout Cookies). This “Suicide Girl” strain was then crossed with the rare Purple Pineapple to create a strain bursting with purple calyxes, appearing similar to a bunch of grapes dusted with trichomes. Grape Calyx is ideal for consumers seeking to relieve general physical discomfort, stimulate appetite, and enhance their mood.
Ninja Fruit by Ocean Grown Seeds is a hybrid strain with a potent Haze aroma and unique purple foliage. By crossing Grapefruit Haze with Grape Ape (by Stoned Ninja), Ocean Grown Seeds created a cerebral, uplifting strain that stimulates creativity, good conversation, and appetite. The high quantities of terpenes myrcene and pinene in this strain help enhance the mood and ensure a sense of wellbeing.
Ultra Banana is a delicious, sleep-inducing cross of MK Ultra and Banana Kush. MK Ultra possesses strong indica-dominant genetics, including OG Kush and G-13, which are amplified by the sweet and floral elements of Banana Kush. This sedating combination lays into the body, weighing the consumer down with potent relaxation ideal for late evenings. Enjoy Ultra Banana to help relieve restlessness, anxiety, and general pain while stimulating introspective thought.
Blue Wonder is a sativa-dominant hybrid originating from California as a distinct descendant of Blue Dream. Originally bred from Blueberry and Super Silver Haze, Blue Wonder exhibits a profound level of cerebral invigoration while maintaining a classic Blue Dream body buzz. With a traditional Blueberry aroma, Blue Wonder delivers gentle euphoria and swift relief for patients treating pain, depression, and nausea.
Jahwaiian by Pua Mana 1st Hawaiian Pakalōlō Seed Bank is a tropical mashup of two legendary strains. By combining Lamb’s Bread genetics sourced directly from Nine Mile, St. Anne’s, Jamaica, and the “Sweet Lady of Waiāhole” (AKA Hawai’i ‘78), Pua Mana crafted an uplifting strain that harnesses the tropical vibes and aromas distinct to the Hawaiian and Caribbean coastlines. Jahwaiian’s effects are stimulating, delivering plenty of energy to the body. Also anticipate a manageable headiness that encourages self-reflection. This strain may help curb depression and fatigue while encouraging physical activity.
WMD by Vancouver Island Seed Company is a high-yielding indica with potent Canadian roots. It exhibits a unique aroma of sweet berry, musk, and hashy spice that remains earthy on the palate after exhaling. The effects are initially cerebral, but they later settle down into the body to relax and soothe limbs. This cross of Big Bud and Fucking Incredible may offer relief from depression, minor physical pain, and migraines
