We are excited to announce that we have some new strains coming your way that we specifically handpicked from our 2021 winter pheno hunt and will be available at participating dispensaries soon.
Our Pheno Hunt of Seed Junky’s EmergenC
When two strains produce “children”, we know that those child strains will never be exactly the same. We call each of those “children” phenotypes. The goal of pheno hunting is to sort through the resulting plants produced by the seeds to seek out the particular phenotype that you desire. Seeds of the same strain can produce many different phenotypes, with the flavor and smoking experience varying as well. Therefore, when planting seeds, you must conduct a thorough pheno hunt before arriving at any final conclusions about that strain.
For our latest pheno hunt project, we chose a promising new strain from Seed Junky Genetics, a renowned California breeder and creator of Wedding Cake, which was the 2019 Leafly Strain of the Year.
Their latest creation, Emergen-C, proved to be a worthy gene pool to sift through. That is one of the things that made this pheno hunt so special. Out of the dozens of seeds we planted, they all had good traits. Emergen-C may be a new strain on the market, but it was very stable genetically, with little variation from pheno to pheno.
This strain packs an orange punch and a great high. It’s name is a nod to the Vitamin C supplement that many take to help prevent colds. Let’s dive deeper into the details of Emergen-C.
Emergen-C is a cross between Seed Junky’s Orange Push Pop and Sherbinski’s Sunset Sherbet. Orange Push Pop is a sweet and uplifting strain that tastes like a creamy orange dreamsicle bar. It leaves you happy and is not overly sedative, so it’s a great strain for new smokers. Sunset Sherbet is on the other end of the spectrum, with a high THC content and a high that is more sedative and will be strong and last longer. It has a fruity sherbet taste, with a bit of berries and bubblegum, as well. Together, Emergen-C was born.
Who loves orange soda? We love orange soda! And that tangerine fizzy flavor is packed into Emergen-C. The orange citrus flavor is so strong with this strain that it lasts through the entire smoke, from first inhale to final exhale. It’s definitely one of the most flavorful strains we have ever released, and that is saying something when you have some strong tasty strains like Big Drip.
One of the most unique aspects of Emergen-C is the fizzy effect that some get from it. The flavor lingers in your mouth and leaves a fizzy, tingling sensation on your tongue, similar to soda pop. The intense flavor and fun fizzing experience will have you hitting this strain over and over.
This is a fun and really well-balanced strain. Combining an uplifting strain with a more sedative strain, Emergen-C brings you a happy feeling of wellness and positive vibes. Because of this, we suggest using it for therapeutic benefits for depression, fatigue or anxiety.
