Our Favourite Flowers and Buds for the Spring

As we fly into spring, we’re excited to see what is blooming on the ground. With our newest store in Ladysmith opening later this month, we’d like to celebrate by sharing some of our staff’s top picks for flowers and buds! Our team has carefully selected these products for their exceptional quality and potency, as well as their unique characteristics that cater to both connoisseurs and newcomers.

Understanding Cannabis Strains

flower and buds

Before we reveal our staff picks, let’s take a moment to understand what differentiates one strain from another. Cannabis strains are essentially different breeds of the cannabis plant, each with its unique profile of effects, flavours, and aromas. These variations are a result of differences in genetics, growing conditions, and processing methods. Strains are generally categorized into three main types: Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid.

  • Indica strains are known for their relaxing and sedating effects, making them ideal for evening use.
  • Sativa strains tend to provide more energizing and uplifting effects, perfect for daytime use.
  • Hybrids are a mix of both, offering a balanced effect that can be tailored to address specific needs.

Staff Picks for the spring

Jameson
Pomelo Skunk Flower
Check out this unique flower from Vancouver Island’s Lantzville Genetics, crossing Rockstar with Citrique for an exotic burst of orange, lemon, and fuel notes. Cultivated with care, it’s hung-dried, hand-trimmed, and undergoes a 40-day cold cure for unmatched smoothness. It’s hand-packaged in Victoria West, ensuring top-notch quality in every bud. Swing by to try this tasty strain – you’re in for a treat!

Chemical Romance Pre Rolls

Our Chemical Romance pre-rolls, born from a Chem Brulee and Love Potion #9 union, are a testament to flavour. There is a really nice sour citrus profile with poetic floral undertones. These pre-rolls promise a great experience. Trust me, one puff and you’ll believe in fairy tales.

Bird
Tribal Triple Burger

The GMO is strong on this one! Triple Burger is bred by back crossing (GMO x GMO) to stabilize the strain, then crossing that lineage with Han-Solo Burger (Larry OG x GMO Cookies). Its intense fuel aroma gives way to an equally strong gas flavour in its smoke.  Dominant terpenes include caryophyllene, farnesene, and linalool. If you are an indica lover like me, you enjoy this one.

Tribal Cuban Linx

Sweet citrus! Cuban Linx is a sativa-dominant strain with refreshing lemon gassy aromas and diverse terpene profile. Typically hitting 23-29% THC levels and commonly hits over 4% terpenes. Top terpenes include Caryophyllene, Ocimene, and Terpinolene. Expect prominent lemon gas pine flavours from inhale to exhale, comparable to the legendary Super Lemon Haze strain.

Educational Corner: The Importance of Terpenes

In addition to understanding the basic types of cannabis strains, it’s also important to learn about terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants, including cannabis, and they contribute to the plant’s scent, flavour, and potentially its effects. Each strain has its own unique terpene profile, which can influence its overall experience. For example, myrcene is known for its relaxing properties, while limonene offers mood elevation and stress relief.


By selecting strains based on their terpene profiles, you can tailor your cannabis experience to better suit your needs and preferences.
