Our Strains Explained
On all of South Point Hemp’s product labels, you will see a strain name. This name is not to be confused with flavor as Cherry Wine, for instance, will not taste like Cherry Wine. That is the strain of hemp plant that product is derived from. Outside of some subtle flavor and smell differences, all of our products essentially taste the same. Obviously, this discussion does not pertain to the chocolates nor the fruit chews.
Cherry Wine - The Cherry Wine strain is said to have a complex cherry floral frame, layered with musky pine skunk overtones, and hints of sharp cheddar cheese and black pepper undertones. Cherry Wine has been described as "earthy and flowery."
Dominant terpenes include Farnesene, Limonene, Myrcene, Linalool, and Caryophyllene.
Of our strains, Cherry Wine has the highest CBD content, but it is going to be best known for the terpene Caryophyllene. Caryophyllene has been known to have analgesic properties, along with amplifying the potential to decrease inflammation.
Mountain Blizzard - The Mountain Blizzard strain can be described as a powerful, sweet-spicy mixture of clove, red wine, and lemon.
Dominant terpenes include Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Linalool, and Pinene.
Mountain Blizzard has the strongest CBG content. CBG is associated with being an appetite stimulant, neuroprotectant, and anti-microbial.
Mountain Mango - The Mountain Mango strain is sweet and smooth, and is said to come together like a delicious 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 include Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Humulene, and Pinene. Of those terpenes, Pinene is most prevalent. It is being studied for its effects on memory, by inhibiting the degradation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is critical for short term memory.
Pineapple Destress - The Pineapple Destress strain has a strong fruity smell that meshes well with the earthy and pine hints in its aroma.
Pineapple Destress is most known for the cannabinoid CBD-A. CBD-A is being studied as a COX-2 enzyme inhibitor, doing similar to what NSAIDs do, but without causing the GI complications that common NSAIDs can cause. It is the second strongest in terms of CBD content.
Quick Kush– The Quick Kush strain is an earthy, oily, lemon blend, highlighted with spicy pine and diesel undertones.
Dominant terpenes include Myrcene, Caryophyllene, and Limonene.
Our Quick Kush strain focuses on the top two, Myrcene and Limonene. Myrcene has been known to act as a muscle relaxer as well as a sedative, while Limonene is being studied for its positive effects on mood and mood disorders.
