It's All in The Name

Ever wonder where your favorite cannabis strain went? If you were a fan of Green Crack, you may have noticed, it's nowhere to be found. The legal cannabis market changed the way we buy our cannabis and it shouldn't be surprising, it changed the way we market it too. Regulations have made it difficult for Licensed producers to use the original strain names and with the industry becoming more competitive they've had to get creative. Strains like Gorilla Glue and Skittles can no longer hold their name and who wants to look at a menu that seems to have nothing buy Girl Scout Cookies on it? Many consumers associate strains with activities like, the strain that I love smoking when I go for a walk. Or the strain I use to smoke when I was studying. How does a person know what they're really getting when the actual ingredient isn't always on the package?

Here is our list of strains we recommend for certain activities and a few products that contain them.

  • Green Crush (AKA Green Crack)
  • Durban Poison
  • Harlequin
  • Jack Herer

No matter how you value traditions you can't deny that the legal cannabis industry has made it a lot easier for the average person to consume and regulate their own personal cannabis consumption. Exploring terpenes, thc levels, and an ever-changing book of processing adds to the education process no matter how experienced you are. It's interesting to say the least and who knows, maybe one day, knowing the strains and their affects will just be common knowledge.
