The scent, flavor and high of some of the Purest Indica plants was incredibly close to the OG Kush cutting and although the plants grew entirely differently, as the Purest Indica is extremely leafy and high-yielding compared to low leaf to high bract (not calyx) ratio and low yield of the OG Kush.

Last week I had both the OG Kush and Purest Indica tested for their cannabinoids and terpenes and one of the Purest Indica plants had an almost identical terpene profile of OG Kush.

Thiols, also known as mercaptans, are found in a wide range of natural products, including fruits, vegetables, and herbs. In cannabis, thiols are produced by the plant in response to their environment and are believed to have a protective role in the plant's defense against pathogens and other stressors.

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam was a world-renowned Israeli scientist who made significant contributions to the field of cannabis research. He passed away on March 9th, 2023, at the age of 92. His groundbreaking discoveries and advocacy for the legalization of medical marijuana have left an indelible mark on the scientific community and society as a whole.

A common classification of two types of cannabis in which we call plants that produce narrow or broad leaves and assign effects based on it.

Of all the varieties that I have grown, "Skunk" has to be the most requested and also the least understood. Many people think it is a variety, when in reality, it is more of a description of one of the many distinctive scents of cannabis found in Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Hindu Kush mountains. 

Original Haze was first bred in 1969 in the Santa Cruz Mountains by a gentleman named "G," He exchanged seeds with Skunkman Sam who then saved the variety and turned the world onto Haze.
