Taiga is an evenly balanced hybrid (50% indica/50% ruderalis) strain created through a cross of the powerful Power Plant X Ruderalis strains.

The Taiga high has a flawless blend of powerful physical relaxation and uplifted cerebral effects.
Chrystal is an indica dominant hybrid (60% indica/40% sativa) strain created through crossing the infamous White Widow X Northern Lights strains.

Chrystal buds have arrowhead-shaped bright neon green nugs with beautiful delicate golden undertones and thin twisty amber hairs. Each nug is completely frosted with thick chunky white trichomes and is practically dripping with sweet sticky resin. Chrystal buds have an aroma of clean freshly cut grass and a taste of pine with a hint of grassy earth. The high is characterized by a strongly social buzz accompanied by an immediate onset of a powerful energetic cerebral high. You’ll be incredibly talkative and outgoing with waves of energy that ebb throughout your entire body. This is accompanied by a relaxing body high that zaps any pain from your body and leaves you completely at ease. Due to these potent sativa and mild indica effects, Chrystal is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, depression, appetite loss, and social anxiety.
OG, also commonly known as “OG Kush” to most members of the cannabis community, is a 100% pure indica hybrid strain with unknown genetics, although it is commonly thought to be a cross of LA Kush X SFV OG. This dank bud boasts an insanely high THC level that ranges from 19-26% on average. OG has a memorable aroma of earthy woody pine with a hint of sour spice and a taste of pungent woody pine with a hint of spicy earth upon exhale. These buds have small to medium-sized dense dark forest green spade-shaped nugs with neon green undertones and a spattering of furry fiery orange hairs. These nugs are dusted with a fine layer of chunky white crystal trichomes and sweet sticky resin. Users describe the OG high as having a slowly creeping head buzz that’s uplifting and felt primarily in the eyes and forehead, leaving your eyes dry, red, and droopy. This is accompanied by a mellow body high that spreads in warming numbing waves from your head throughout the rest of your body, leaving you completely-pain free and with surprising waves of cerebral energy. Due to these effects, OG is ideal for treating chronic pain and stress as well as mild to moderate cases of depression.
Cinderella 99, otherwise known as C99, or simply “Cindy,” is a sativa-dominant hybrid bred by Mr. Soul of Brothers Grimm. She’s best known for her potent cerebral high, sweet fruity flavors, and epic yields. According to Mr. Soul, C99 was created using seeds of Jack Herer
. Cinderella 99 is very popular with indoor growers because of its short, bushy stature, high yields, short flowering time, and high THC content (up to 23%). Cindy’s effects are usually described as dreamy, euphoric, and uplifting.
Sativa-dominant 3 Kings (sativa/indica ratio of about 70:30) gets its name not from the 1999 movie or even the three wise men of the Bible but from its parentage: a combination of Headband, Sour Diesel, and OG Kush, each among the most popular marijuana strains in the world. The effects, mostly cerebral, reflect this strain’s sativa genes, inducing a focused, energetic feeling perfect for daytime activities together with a relaxed, happy sensation. This is ideal for treating a wide range of conditions, including cramps, depression, migraines and other headaches, inflammation, chronic pain, and insomnia. THC levels are relatively strong, topping 14% in some tests, but CBD levels are much lower, less than 1%, so 3 Kings isn’t the best choice for treating seizures or other medical problems that can be alleviated by CBD. This unique strain has an earthy, hashy flavor and a pungent smell with notes of pine and soil. The bud is bright green with brown hairs and visible trichomes.
