It is likely that your doctor will want to know the reason why you are seeking to use medical marijuana; and what, if any, other medications you are currently taking.
What’s the difference between all of these different cannabis strains? Why are there so many different types?
Within the cannabis industry, there are breeders who specialize in creating new strains, usually by first creating a unique male, giving it a unique name, and then taking that male and pollinating females of different strains by different breeders.
Some breeders go for rare and exotic while others follow the popular trends of the day. For example, Runtz is a very popular strain at the moment, and therefore the market is currently seeing many new Runtz crosses. Recently, Wedding Cake was a hit and therefore you saw many different “Cake” crosses hitting the market. Before that, Cookies and Gelato were popular favorites, thus the many cookies and gelato crosses.
Strains can differ in appearance, taste, smell, and even experience (though experience is most subjective). Favored qualities or characteristics of a strain are often sought by breeders looking to introduce those qualities or characteristics into a new strain. For example, a breeder might want to use a certain strain that has a citrus flavor, but then attempt to increase the yield by crossing with a known heavy yielder. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn’t.
The reason there are so many strains is because the creativity of growers, breeders, and consumers is never ending.
Where did the original strains come from?
Being native to so many parts of the world, Cannabis has been cultivated by humans for thousands of years. These indigenous strains of cannabis are known as Landraces.
The early American cannabis strains were created from crossing Mexican and Central American landrace strains. Later, during the 1960s, original growers of the U.S. cannabis movement brought Afghani landraces back to the U.S. and introduced Afghani genetics to those existing strains that were in California at the time. Those breeding adventures in 1960’s northern California formed the genesis of modern cannabis strains in the U.S.
What is a Landrace strain?
Many famous breeders have sought out landrace strains when creating new varieties. They claim that the historical landraces bring a certain strength to newer varieties.
For example, legendary Amsterdam breeder Green House Seeds was famous for traveling the world in search of landraces and then creating some of the most well-known strains of all time, such as White Widow.
How do I decide what strains to smoke?
When you smoke it, take note of the flavor. There is usually a flavor on the inhale, and then a passing flavor on the exhale. Cannabis is complex. Later, take note of how it made you feel. Use these experiences as your guide.
As you become more familiar, you will start to learn the lineage of the strains you enjoy. Your knowledge will grow.
As you begin to collect this library of cannabis information in your brain, you will start to see patterns between tastes, flavors, traits of the different strains and how they carry over into various crosses that share lineage.
You will also become more familiar with the terpene profiles of these strains, which influence the flavor, aroma, and experience of the strain.
Cannabis is used and enjoyed for many reasons. Many find that cannabis is useful for treating physical pain or mental stress, among the many medical uses. Others find that cannabis is useful for generating ideas during creative tasks, such as writing, blogging, or playing musical instruments. Then you have individuals with serious, debilitating conditions for which there is no treatment but for cannabis. For these individuals, cannabis is truly lifesaving. For others, it is a part of high culture and cuisine, to be enjoyed by the modern-day renaissance man or woman.
What cannabis strain will get me the highest?
In Oklahoma, all cannabis flower must be tested by a licensed laboratory before it can be sold, and the lab tests include THC. Therefore, you can ask the retail store for the THC percentage whenever you are shopping. Most retail dispensaries will actually list the THC % on the strain menu.
However, there is a growing consensus in the industry that percentage of THC is not the sole influencer or even the primary influencer of the experience. Many will reference terpenes as having a significant influence on the user experience. Others will cite the importance of the “entourage effect” which is the combination of the specific terpenes with other cannabinoids, including THC, CBD, CBG, and others.
What types of marijuana products do you sell?
Smokey Okies sells premium cannabis flower to marijuana dispensaries around the state of Oklahoma. We also collaborate with well known processors to create concentrate products.
What is flower?
In the cannabis industry, we refer to the final smokeable product as “flower” because the buds you smoke are fruits of the Cannabis flower (as opposed to the stalk, stem, leaves, roots, etc)
What are cannabis concentrates?
Cannabis concentrates are processed goods that are made by taking cannabis flower or trim and then creating a completely different end product through a series of chemical processes. Distillate is a common processed good that is used for vape cartridges.
What are solventless concentrates?

What is coco coir?
Coco coir is a by-product of coconut shells that is discarded. A quick lesson about coco: many different industries in Asia will use the fibers (hairs) from coconut shells to make products, such as textiles. There is a certain amount of discarded product that is considered waste (i.e. parts of the coconut shell fiber that can’t be used in apparel). This “waste” product is then imported to North America where we in the cannabis industry use it as a soil substitute to grow our cannabis in. The great part about using coco coir is that we are using a renewable natural resource that is always being recycled. Growing in coco is good for the environment!
What is hydroponic growing?
In traditional cultivation, plants receive their nutrition from the soil. In hydroponics, the plants can be grown in other mediums but receive their nutrition because nutrients have been added to the water.
All forms of cultivation present their own unique challenge. All cultivation styles face threat from insects, though different types. All forms of cultivation have the potential to yield excellent, clean, beautiful and wonderfully flavorful cannabis.
Do you grow Indoor, Outdoor, or Greenhouse?
How often do you harvest at Smokey Okies?
We harvest every Monday morning. We have worked diligently to set up a perpetual growth cycle, to where we have staggered our plant’s growth to harvest every single week.
What is perpetual harvesting?
Perpetual harvesting refers to a system of indoor cultivation whereby the plants are harvested on a recurring schedule, as opposed to seasonally. Because we are indoors, we can control our environment and schedule to harvest more frequently than is possible outdoors.
Why do you harvest so frequently?

We operate our growing methods under the same mission. We know that it is better (and safer and less risky) for you to be able to order only what you need for this week. You can then manage your inventory better.
Our entire purpose is to serve you, the retail dispensary, so that you can have our product when you want it.
