Cannabis Strains For CHBP
Make sure and grab some cannabis online before you head down to the festival to avoid the long lines of the downtown cannabis retailers.
Orange Poison makes a great daytime sativa strain and Catholic School Girl is a crazy powerful hybrid that is best left for people who aren’t driving or when you’re safely back home for the evening.
Lemon Meringue is a sativa-hybrid strain. Cookies and Cream and Lemon Skunk were bred together to create it. Shatter isn’t the best way to experience this strains terpene profile, but it usually has creamy citrus, skunk, and pine aromas.
True OG is A List Cannabis Club’s cut of OG Kush, a strain that is the genetic backbone of Washington’s recreational cannabis industry. OG Kush’s dominate traits shine through with any strain its bred with adding a special potent kushy pop.
Glueberry #1 creates large fluffy triangular flowers that have equal parts purple, green and orange coloring. The colors blend into a truly unique looking bud. There are plenty of trichomes covering the surface, but cracking open the bud reveals a shimmering undercoat sticky resin. Glueberry #1 has aromas akin to spicy berries and wood. Glueberry is a good strain to smoke when you head back to the car for a much needed smoke break. Ease your sore muscles before you head back in for the night and watch the headliners throw it down.
Sweetwater Farms is one of the most popular cannabis producers out of Eastern Washington. Their Key Lime Cupcake strain is a creative sativa-hybrid. The Key Lime Cupcake strain is a cross between Sweet Island Skunk and Lime Skunk. Smoke some of this to help recover and get your day started after a couple rough nights of partying.
