Bud of the Week - True Blueberry (DJ Short) x OG Kush

     Ask any given number of people what the main chemical component of cannabis is, and the overwhelming majority will say "THC". For years, delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol has been given the majority of attention due to its psychoactive effects. Many do not realize that there are over 80 discovered "cannabinoids" within the makeup of the cannabis plant - only THC having the mind-altering impact.  As scientists have begun to experiment with the different chemicals within this plant and horticulturists have bred and crossbred cannabis to create different strains, the cannabis community has been able to discover the varied benefits of the plant other than the "high".
     One example of these new developments is a strain called "True Blueberry (DJ Short) x OG Kush". As the name suggests, this strain is a cross between True Blueberry (50/50 strain) and OG Kush (Indica). With the goal of increasing the cannabidiol (CBD) content (over 12%) of the plant while reducing the THC (under 5%), this strain leaves a person's head clear while providing the pain relief sought after by many patients. A true "medical" strain, TB x OG also gives its users a wonderful palate, with a strong blueberry flavor and tones of cinnamon and vanilla.

Medicinal Uses: Chronic Pain, Body relief without mental intoxication, Insomnia, Muscle Spasms, Nausea, MS, Gastrointestinal Issues, Arthritis, Anorexia
