Like the secret government experiments it’s name after, once you know about this indica it will change your life. MK Ultra is a go-to trifecta for many medical patients. It helps with anxiety, appetite, and insomnia. Laugh, eat, and then hit the sheets. It’s a great evening sesh smoke and a must have for any stash.
Sativas are known for motivating and getting you moving around versus vegging out on the couch. The leaves of a sativa are thin and spread apart. They have a higher levels of THC and lower levels of CBD (the chemical that’s believed to aid pain relief and anxiety). Creativity flourishes when smoking a sativa and treating depression is a major reason for its use among medical patients. Sativa strains are likely to get you talking, thinking, and philosophizing. To remember that sativas are typically elevating in their effects keep this phrase in mind, “Sunny Sativa.”
A sativa, Triple D is great for both daytime and ighttime—depending on how much of it you smoke. If you have real responsibilities or need to operate heavy machinery, day tokes should be kept light because it will create a bit of an, erm, hilarious confusion, even for those with a high tolerance. Diesel in the name should tip you off that it smells (and tastes) a little bit like gas.
Famous breeder DJ Short cultivated this indica-dominant strain which tastes great and is excellent for anxiety. Blueberry has superior potency so a little can go a long way. If you overdo it, don’t be surprised if you find yourself passed out before 10 p.m. If you hit some Blueberry and you don’tget the sensation of a mouthful of fruity goodness, you do not have the best version of this strain.
If you’ve got some worthy Golden Goat in your pipe, it is going to hit you hard. Its intoxicating effects are very powerful. Smokers of Golden Goat sometimes report mild paranoia as a side effect, but most experience a fairly optimistic frame of mind with limited negative properties. It will get your heart racing, so take it easy with this sativa if you’re trying it for the first time.
If nutrients haven’t been properly flushed from the plant during cultivation, chances are high that burning it will cause sparks to fly, and not in a good way. Sure it seems like a novel effect—it’s July 4th and 4/20 all mixed into one. Yippee!—but a badly flushed product will taste bad, smell off, and it’s not a good buy. Unfortunately, there is not much of a way to identify this issue until you’re smoking it.
Hybrids are the cherry on top of the cannabis sundae. They can be the perfect combination of energizing and relaxing, depending on the ratio of sativa to indica. Hybrids are created with the intention of maintaining the best qualities from both the sativa and indica parent plant, which often results in super-potent (and super popular) strains.
Linguist Jean-Charles Seigneuret attributed the strain’s literary popularity to its role as a “psychedelic Philosopher’s Stone” which served “to transform the metaphorical lead of the harried, detribalized modern conscience into the ‘gold’ latent in ‘Acapulco gold.'”
Called “connoisseur pot”, in the 1960s Acapulco Gold was “a sought-after marijuana for American smokers, considered better quality than the weed growing in California or Texas.” “Those in the know sought Mexican Acapulco Gold for the highest of highs.” Another report highlighted its “exquisite taste”. Its potency was due to a THC content of 23%, making it one of the strongest strains available at the time. The strain’s association with quality was such that the 1993 texbook Drugs, Alcohol and Mental Health claimed that “Acapulco gold” had become a generic term for high-grade marijuana.
During the first season of Saturday Night Live, Desi Arnaz thanked the crew of the show for presenting him with a box of Acapulco Gold cigars.
However, the strain received its greatest tribute in Norman Spinrad’s 1969 novel Bug Jack Barron. Spinrad’s work described a futuristic United States where marijuana usage was not only legal but commonplace, with its users including senior elected officials and major celebrities, and where the leading brand was Acapulco Golds, which were promoted on national television with Juan Valdez-style advertising:
Mexican peon leading burro up winding trail on jungle-covered volcanic mountain, a fruity-authoritative Encyclopædia Britannica voice over: “In the high country of Mexico evolved a savoury strain of marijuana which came to be known as Acapulco Gold in the days of the contraband trade.” Cut to same peon cutting a stand of marijuana with a sickle and loading it onto burro: “Prized for its superior flavour and properties, Acapulco Gold was available only to the favoured few due to its rarity and. ” Roll to border patrolman frisking unsavoury Pancho Villa type Mexican: “the difficulties involved in importation.” Aerial view of huge field of geometrically-rowed marijuana: “But now the finest strain of Mexican seeds, combined with American agricultural skill and carefully controlled growing conditions, produce a pure strain of marijuana unequalled in flavour, mildness. and relaxing properties. Now available in thirty-seven states: (Cut to close-up of red and gold Acapulco Golds pack.) Acapulco Golds, America’s premium quality marijuana cigarette–and, of course, totally noncarcinogenic.
Acapulco Gold was one of the parents of the hybrid Skunk No. 1, which was called “the backbone of the modern cannabis breeding world.” In 2014, High Times magazine named Acapulco Gold one of the greatest strains of all time.
Reported prices for Acapulco Gold were “the astronomical sum of twenty dollars an ounce” during the 1960s, $500 per kilo in 1967, $30 an ounce in 1972, and $36 per kilo in 1973. For comparison, the legal price in Port Angeles, WA was $12 per gram in November 2016.
This time it’s with seven new strains, chosen by their cannabis community from the 2019 Sensi Seeds Research project.
Satin Black Domina CBD Feminized (Black Domina CBD, Sensi #743)
Satin Black Domina CBD Feminized gives blissfully relaxing effects, with a hint of cerebral uplift. The plants have striking, dark green leaves, and grow to average heights. They produce incredibly large yields, especially with a little extra attention.
AMSTERDAM, NL – Sensi Seeds is known for pioneering the cannabis seed industry, and as Europe’s largest and oldest seed bank celebrates its 35 th year of business, they continue to innovate.
Sensi Seeds Research is a ground-breaking endeavour that brings together the best of new world cannabis genetics with carefully selected cultivars from their extensive seed bank. In 2019, Sensi Seeds released eleven strains and asked their fans to vote on which three would join the permanent catalogue. Not only that, but the community were also asked to suggest, and then choose, the names of the winning varieties. Now the moment has come to properly welcome them into the Sensi Seeds family!
Cobalt Haze Feminized (Blueberry x Afghani x Silver Haze, Sensi #11 FEM)
Cobalt Haze Feminized grows to towering heights and produces large yields. The plants grow well in sunny, warm climates. The Blueberry influence is noticeable in the fruity scent and taste, though it’s also possible to detect a hint of citrus and skunk.
“The response from the community has been incredible! Involving them in launching new cannabis varieties has been a lot fun and I’m proud of the results.”- David Duclos, Sensi Seeds Research Team.
