Cotton Candy Romulan

Sativa Dominant
Lineage: Facewreck x Headbanger

Bred by Pink House


Sativa Dominant
Lineage: Highland Thai x Purple Thai x Afghani

It was the #1-rated strain at the 1996 Cannabis Cup. A very distinctive blend of sweet hash, menthol, expensive soil, anise, and some slight fruitiness — Flo’s aroma is almost completely distinct and could easily be picked out of a lineup. Users note it for its taste and clear-headed mental high that allows the user to focus on the task at hand. It’s never a super-potent strain to the point of being overwhelming — it’s a very even and smooth experience overall that is highly recommended for all levels of patient, primarily as a daytime med.



Ghost Stomper OG

Indica Dominant
Lineage: Ghost OG x Lemon Stomper

Bred by Pink House, the Ghost OG and Lemon Stomper create a citrus flavored OG. The larger bud structure of the Lemon Stomper mother increases the yield of the plant while retaining the OG flavor and high.

Named for its distinct grape-like smell, this indica is known for providing carefree relaxation that can help soothe pain, stress, and anxiety. The high is profoundly relaxing, a full-body experience that can lead to strong couch-lock and deep sleep. This is definitely a nighttime strain, as it can have a near-comatose effect. But the high can also be euphoric and focused, with a clear mind.


Herijuana OG

Indica Dominant
Lineage: Killer New Haven x Petrolia Headstash

This combo was worked by breeders for 15 generations to create an inbred line (IBL), meaning that most of the seeds will grow into plants that are nearly identical. Herijuana aromas and flavors range from spicy earth and sandalwood to hashy fruit, it is sometimes thought to have a cleaner and more robust smell of OG. The high provides a heavy, almost numbing feeling.


Sativa Dominant

This strain features a pungent fuel smell and overpowering taste. Jupiter OG provides a very heavy and long-lasting body high, making it great for people looking for relief from insomnia or pain.

JR Mints

Indica Dominant
Lineage: “Thin Mint” Cookies x Face Off BX1

The infamous “Animal Cookies” aka 09 Cookies was one of the original cookie clones to hit the scene. A bit of a better yielder than the Forum cut with a spear shaped bud rather than more club shape. When dialed in, she can be an decent yielder of extremely dense purple spears and clumps that ring true to the now-classic doughy OG mint funk cookies are known for. Expect an increased yield from the face off side while taming some of the Cookies lankiness with a little more lateral branching. Flavors are just like the name puts off, minty chocolate doughy funky goodness, all the time.


KarmaRado OG

Indica Dominant
Lineage: Triangle Kush x SFV OG Kush x White OG

This great Co Op was done together with Cannarado Genetics and Pinkhouse CO. A combination of Triangle Kush, SFV OG Kush, And White OG Selected and Line bred to a very high standard, a true queen in the garden.

LA Kush

Indica Dominant
Lineage: OG Kush x Mystery

LA Kush is an indica dominant hybrid strain with widely debated genetics. Although it is well known that it is an OG Kush descendant, its other parent is a mystery – many believe that it is a backcross of OG Kush and others believe that it is Abusive OG. Whatever its true parentage, LA Kush boasts a moderately high THC level between 19-21% and surprisingly cerebral effects. The onset has a uplifting cerebral effect that builds quickly, leaving you energized and motivated with a sense of focus and purpose.

Lemon G

Sativa Dominant
Lineage: G13

Potent, well-focused and even, this sativa hybrid is a daughter of Original G13. As this is not a pure sativa, relaxing indica effects tend to show up first after consuming Lemon G. Over time, however, the upbeat, euphoric, and giggly sativa effects begin to emerge. Lemon G is a sociable strain and, as the name suggests, has a strong lemon fragrance. Taste-wise, this strain is fairly mellow and does not necessarily exhibit the strong citrus properties found in its scent.



Mars OG

Indica Dominant
Lineage: OG Kush

A spacey indica coming out of the California Bay Area, Mars OG has been given its planetary name in reference to its growing conditions.

Sativa Dominant
Lineage: Mexican Sativa x Afghani

Bred by Soma Sacred Seeds, this strain provides strong cerebral effects that ease into a deep, full-body relaxation over time.

The high starts with a euphoric happiness that spreads throughout your mind, immediately erasing any mental pain you may be experiencing.

OverFlo OG

Hybrid Dominant
Lineage: Flo x Face Off OG BX1

A little more on the indica side, her tantalizing looks are paired with a rather complex terpene palette that combines the Flo’s blueberry, menthol kush and musky incense tones with the lemon lime and OG Kush funk of the Face Off OG. Following her rather complex flavor and aroma is a perfectly balanced hybrid high that hits both the body and the mind with a fast-acting and long-lasting body buzz that will skyrocket you through your day.
