Blast Off
Blast Off is a high-THC, sativa-dominant cultivar, the potent result of crossing with some classic strains: Afghani, Mexican Acapulco Gold and Columbian Gold. Its robust aromatics are rich, spicy and earthy, an indicator of its reported effects. With its high-THC potential, it’s recommended to start with a small dose before trying more. Blast Off is dominated by terpenes that include myrcene, caryophyllene and pinene. Myrcene, the most abundant terpene in cannabis, provides pungent and skunky aromas mixed with notes of sweet earth and dried mango. Myrcene has been reported to offer sedative effects by many patients. Caryophyllene, a relaxing terpene thought to associate with the endocannabinoid system to provide a sense of balance, also brings flavours of pepper and savoury herbs to the table. Pinene, also present in high quantities, adds refreshing notes of sweet pine and citrus. The Blast Off flowers are long, but dense and solid, with pleasant variations in leaf colour that range from deep emerald green to a dusty sage. Along with pronounced trichome coverage, the appearance is balanced by thick tendrils of brick-red pistils.

What is a Sativa?

Sativa strains of medicinal marijuana are usually uplifting and stimulating. If you’ve ever smoked or ingested cannabis that makes everything funny and puts you in a great mood, it was probably from a Sativa strain. It creates a feeling of comfort, non-drowsy, and usually introspective highs. The effects of smoking or ingesting a Sativa makes them particularly popular among artists and creatives. Sativa has been reported to potentially aid with treating mental and behavioral problems, to treating depression, stress and ADHD. However, more research needs to be done to confirm what effect it actually has.

What is an Indica?

The major difference between Sativa’s and Indica’s is while a Sativa can make you feel alert, active, and aware, an Indica will have a relaxing feel on the body. The physical effects of an Indica strain commonly include a drowsy and mellow mood with stress and pain relief. Indica’s are one of the more suggested strains when using it for medicinal purposes as it has been reported to potentially aid with treating sleeping disorders such as insomnia, fibromyalgia, body aches and pains. Indica’s are also reported to potentially aid with treating Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Fibromyalgia and Lupus. However, more research needs to be done to confirm what effect it actually has.
