What’s in a Strain?
For those of us who grew up in the 60’s and 70’s our memories of smoking cannabis consisted of our passing joints around a circle of friends with a bonfire and keg of beer often in the picture.
We bought ounce bags and rolled fat joints that often tasted bad and had exploding seeds if we weren’t careful. That was then.
Today we have a new reality in the cannabis flower being grown and offered. This is a highly refined product with differing balances of THC and CBD (Cannabinoids) that you the consumer can choose based on your needs and desires.
CBD is most often connected to healing as it acts on specific areas of our bodies. CBD is considered a “couch-lock high,” making you mellow and chill. THC is more of a “head high” — the active, laughing “get high and clean your house” high.
The flower that gets to the retail stores has been tested so you can view the actual percentages of CBD and THC that are in the product you are buying. With this information, you can better choose and purchase the strains that will provide you the experience you are looking for. Often it will be a product that brings you relief from various ailments and you will be able to identify which strains work best for you.
Gibby’s Garden has grown a variety of plants with a range from high CBD to high THC to see what effect different soils and nutrients have on the final product. We have found varieties in both types that tested very well, both in the lab and with our friends and family who have become our test subjects!
If you are a consumer, you will find that the opening of retail stores and the high level of cultivators in the industry will provide an exciting assortment to help you find what really speaks to you — as opposed to the one or two offerings that your current provider supplies you.
Along with the options, you can be comforted in the knowledge that all of our flower and related products have passed rigorous testing to ensure that there are no pesticides, heavy metals or molds that not only affect the taste of the flower, but can potentially be harmful.
Try a few different strains and let Gibby’s know what you like, so we can grow the strains that best meet your needs and enjoyment.
