Unlike their herb or concentrate counterparts, it’s still quite rare for THC based edibles to list the specific strain they contain. But that’s changing, and PLUS, a hemp and cannabis food company, is at the forefront of this new trend. Announced last December, PLUS Strains are strain-specific gummies created to pay homage to three classic varieties of the cannabis plant: Pineapple Express, Grandaddy Purple, and Lemon Jack.
Made by blending pure, full-spectrum oil with real fruit ingredients and cannabis-derived terpenes, PLUS Strains deliver the familiar flavors and unique effects longtime cannabis connoisseurs have come to expect from the three original cannabis strains.
Each gummy contains 5mg of THC, and since PLUS Strains come in tins of 20 gummies, one tin has a total of 100mg of THC.
Below are the three initial offerings under the PLUS Strains line-up:
#1 Pineapple Express (Hybrid)
Featuring a combination of b-caryophyllene, myrcene, and limonene terpenes, these gummies deliver a smooth yet hard-hitting hybrid effect that will awaken your creative mind, elevate your mood, and bring you euphoric feelings. These edibles are ripe pineapple-flavored with subtle hints of orange and lemon.
#2 Grandaddy Purple (Indica)
These indica gummies contain a prominent amount of pinene, myrcene, and b-caryophyllene, making them perfect to relieve stress, soothe pain, and end sleepless nights. Nicknamed GDP, these edibles have an earthy marionberry and concord grape flavor notes with a rich, sweet finish.
#3 Lemon Jack (Sativa)
Boasting a balanced blend of sweet and sour, these gummies tease the tongue with a squeeze of Eureka and Meyer lemon. With a potent blend of nearly a dozen terpenes, including an abundance of terpinolene, b-caryophyllene and limonene, these sativa edibles is a great antidote to fatigue and fog, while keeping you focused and feeling euphoric.
How do these edibles taste?
We tried the new PLUS Strains ourselves. In particular, the Pineapple Express and Lemon Jacks are very flavorful, while the Granddaddy Purple has more of a heavier cannabis taste going for it. The gummies each create a light and pleasant calming effect that doesn’t feel overpowering or too hard-hitting.
