FLOWER

THE STRAIN IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE GROWER

Flower has traditionally been broken down into two major groups, indica and sativa. The mixing of these two types of cannabis has created many other hybrid strains combining the effects, tastes and aromas to create unique strains never seen before. All these strains or cultivars contain an array of naturally occurring terpenes that work in conjunction with the cannabinoids giving us all the wonderful effects cannabis is known for.

Oregon’s Finest works with the best cannabis cultivators in the state to bring the absolute best representation of a cultivar to our shelves. We seek partnerships with growers who are committed to the plant, their community, the environment and the quality of their product.

INDICA

The classic Indica cannabis plant was originally bred for hashish production.

INDICA

The classic Indica cannabis plant was originally bred for hashish production.

Indica plants were harvested and the trichomes were separated out and pressed into bricks. Other techniques harvested the resin live, by walking through the fields and rubbing the plants with their hands. The resin was then rolled into finger hash or temple balls. The cannabis plants were selectively bred for the sole purpose of producing the maximum amount of trichomes.  During the 70’s, many of the early cannabis pioneers ventured into the valleys of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to bring back some of the genetics we all know so well today. The classic, wide-leaf, dense, purple Indicas are still some of the most popular strains today.

Many people prefer Indicas because of the traditional “stoned” effect it produces. Most Indica Strains have myrcene as the dominant terpene giving us that laid-back, mellow feeling. You may also recognize the earthy, musky notes with mild fruity, grape like aromas. If you’re seeing purple, most likely you’re holding an Indica dominant strain. Some plants can become so dark they almost look black!

If you’re looking for a great choice for movie night, a mellow walk through the forest or maybe a little quality time with the one you love, you really can’t beat a classic Indica strain.

SATIVA

The traditional Sativa strains originate near the equator.

SATIVA

The traditional Sativa strains originate near the equator.

These are the classic Mexican strains like Acapulco Gold and Mohican. South America has given us Columbian Gold, Panama Red and many others. There are Asian strains like Chocolate Thai and African strains like Durban Poison. All these Sativas are quite different in both looks and effects. Some Sativas will give quite the opposite effects most Indicas are known for. Durban Poison contains a unique cannabinoid called THCv. This rare substance has been shown to reduce one’s appetite vs the classic, “munchies”.

Sativas are the first choice for those looking for the traditional cannabis “high”. Maybe you’re looking to skate, snowboard/ski or just contemplate when time began, a nice Sativa is always welcome.

Sativas also have many unique terpene profiles. Some may be terpinolene dominant while others may be packed with limonene. All these terpenes give us the classic citrus, fuel, spicy smells we all love so much.

HYBRID

By far the most popular varieties we see today are hybrid strains.

HYBRID

By far the most popular varieties we see today are hybrid strains.

By mixing genetics and selective breeding, farmers have been able to create strains we only dreamed about years ago. Whether it’s a high THC% or the latest orange flavor, there’s a hybrid out there with your name on it. Most of the famous strains have all been a mix of Indica and Sativa.

Phylos

A new generation of plant scientists, transforming the way we think about cannabis genetics. Phylos has mapped and created a virtual “galaxy” of the most popular strains. It’s easy to do a search for a specific strain and find it’s exact genetic information.
