Thunderstruck is a powerful rock ‘n’ roll themed CBD strain without the big hair.

The aroma and flavors of Thunderstruck are grassy and subtle. Enjoy this sativa-dominant cross if you are looking for a quality medicinal strain with little to no psychoactive effects.
Big Mac by Federation Seeds is an indica-dominant strain with unique sativa fan leaves and an accelerated grow cycle. This generous cut of Mikado and BC Big Bud develops quickly indoors, growing upwards of six feet tall over its speedy seven week maturation. The large plant produces a healthy yield of fruity mid-sized buds that reek of berry and citrus peel. Big Mac’s effects elevate the mind and relax the body, offering a creative bent to a satisfying sedation. Enjoy Big Mac to stimulate the mind and the appetite while infusing the limbs with a relaxing weighted warmth.
Magic Beans OG is a sticky indica strain with heavy, relaxing effects.

Enjoy this indica to combat insomnia, stimulate appetite, and to help manage pain. Magic Beans OG’s sedative qualities make it a perfect nightcap and a must-have for indica enthusiasts.
GTO is a well-balanced hybrid that crosses parent strains Golden Goat and Triangle OG.

Its effects are heady and talkative while exhibiting soothing warmth in the extremities. Enjoy GTO throughout the day to elevate mood, stimulate creativity and conversation, and curb depression.
Versace is a clear-headed sativa-dominant hybrid created by crossing Sour Diesel, OG Kush, and Granddaddy Purple. This trio of trichome-rich strains is combined to offer an array of effects that work off each other. Sour Diesel’s heady buzz acts a catalyst, adding a stimulating alertness to the luscious body effects and pleasant euphoria native to Granddaddy Purple and OG Kush, respectively. Enjoy this pungent flower to help curb depression and fatigue while elevating mood and muting mild physical pain.
