Cannabis usage has now been legalized in many different states. This move has seen an increase in the number of Cannabis strains as many growers and dispensaries seek to achieve a high potency. It’s very challenging to explore all the Cannabis strains out there but, we aim to always help our customers learn and explore the wide world of strain profiles offered at Everest. Therefore, we’d love to share some strain profile information with you as we are very excited about these two!
Part of our excitement comes from the high THC percentage we were able to achieve. Both Pineapple Express and Super Lemon OG(or SLOG), have been available at Everest for a while, but until now we have never offered at 30% THC.
So what’s so good about high THC percentages?
Before answering the question, let us first talk about what determines the strength of a cannabis strain. Different strains have different THC and CBD levels. THC is the compound found in the marijuana bud responsible for the highness when you take a puff. It will stimulate your brain and bring in euphoria, among other effects.
When it comes to the question of why we aim to grow higher THC percentages, we would say it is because it assists our goals to grow better cannabis for the state of New Mexico. The highest THC strain depends on many growth factors. Every cultivator wants to grow the most aromatic and flavorful plants that they can. Naturally, growers want to optimize their plants to reach their maximum genetic potential, boosting terpene production of each unique strain so its aromas, flavors and medicinal properties can shine. We take this very seriously at Everest and our “Living Soil” cultivation facilities, and carefully thought out beneficials, ensure that we are able to learn from each strain as we grow more and more and improve our cultivation processes. This formula is what allowed us to reach the 30% mark in both of these popular strains. Please enjoy and ask our guest advisors about available high THC strains.
