There are countless strains of CBD, but we're going to focus on the five specific types you can get from South Point Hemp. We'll also touch a bit on what they could possibly do for you, as well as some of what you'll find in that strain.
First up, we have Cherry Wine.
Cherry Wine has a complex cherry floral frame, layered with musky pine skunk overtones, and hints of sharp cheddar cheese and black pepper undertones. It can be described as "earthy and flowery."
Dominant terpenes in Cherry Wine are: Caryophyllene, Nerolidol, Myrcene, and Limonene.
Our Cherry Wine Strain is known for the terpene Caryophyllene. Caryophyllene has been said to have analgesic (pain relieving) properties, along with the ability to amplify the potential to decrease inflammation. Caryophyllene is one of the first terpenes known to attach to CB2 receptors, and because of that unique ability, it potentially has potent anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-oxidant properties.
Next we have Mountain Blizzard.
Mountain Blizzard can be described as a powerful, sweet-spicy mixture of clove, red wine, and lemon.
Dominant terpenes in Mountain Blizzard are: Myrcene, Humulene, Caryophyllene, and Bisabolol.
Our Mountain Blizzard strain is known for the cannabinoid CBG. CBG has been scientifically recognized as a safe and effective appetite stimulant, according to research conducted at Berkshire's University of Reading. CBG has exhibited strong anti-bacterial and mild anti-fungal properties in cell cultures, leading researchers to believe it could possibly target infectious diseases. It also has neuroprotective and neurofinlammatory properties, and can possibly support treatments for degenerative conditions like Huntington's Disease, and conditions like Multiple Sclerosis.
Moving on to Mountain Mango.
Mountain Mango is sweet and smooth, and is said to come together like a fresh tropical smoothie, with mango, lychee, passion fruit, and guava, topped off with a hint of limey, citrusy goodness and subtle pine and cinnamon undertones.
Dominant terpenes in Mountain Mango are: Pinene, Caryophyllene, Humulene, and Myrcene.
Our Mountain Mango strain is known for the terpene Pinene. Pinene is being studied for its positive effects on memory, by inhibiting the degradation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is critical for short term memory. Pinenene's neuroprotective properties may also offer protection against degenerative disorders like Alzheimer's disease, general dementia, amnesia, and overall memory loss.
Now we have Pineapple Destress.
Pineapple Destress is sweeter and slightly citrusy, with musky, earthy aromas, cloves, and a hint of fruit.
Dominant terpenes in Pineapple Destress are: Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Pinene.
Our Pineapple Destress strain is known for the cannabinoid CBD-A. CBD-A has shown significant COX-2 enzyme blockage when compared to placebo, two NSAIDs, and other cannabinoids. NSAIDs work by inhibiting COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes. The bad part about inhibiting COX-1 enzymes, is that they play a big role in protecting the lining of your stomach and intestines, and if they're blocked, that leaves you open to major gastrointestinal issues. With CBG-A, you're selectively inhibiting COX-2 enzymes to a much larger extent than COX-1 enzymes, potentially ruling out the gastrointestinal issues that everyday NSAIDs can promote.
Along with CBD-A, Pineapple Destress has Beta-Caryophyllene, and that was recently identified as a natural selective agonist against the CB2 receptor. A number of studies have shown that CB2 is critically involved in modulating inflammatory and neuropathic pain responses. So in our Pineapple Destress strain, we have CBD-A and Beta-Caryophyllene working together harmoniously to fight inflammation.
Last but not least, we have Quick Kush.
Quick Kush has an earthy, oily, lemon blend, highlighted with spicy pine and diesel undertones.
Dominant terpenes in Quick Kush: Limonene, Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Valencene, and Ocimene.
Our Quick Kush strain is known for its Myrcene and Limonene terpenes. Myrcene has been known to act as a muscle relaxer/sedative, while Limonene is being studied for its positive effects on mood disorders. These two together have the potential to aid sleep, relieve stress, increase serotonin and dopamine levels, and elevate your overall mood.
