Created by breeder Mark with Greenshock Farms this pressure has an ideal 1 to 1 ratio testing at 10% CBD and 10% THC. Dr Greenshock was made with a feminine Lavender plant crossed to a male Bubba Kush with Recon making it a novel indica dominant CBD pressure. What makes this pressure so particular is the excessive terpene stage.
Testing at 3.8% myrcene dominant the Dr Greenshock is likely one of the tastiest CBD strains I’ve ever had the pleasure of having fun with. With all the totally different cannabinoids and terpenes working collectively this pressure provides you a mellow comfy excessive and carries many medical advantages. Dr Greenshock is ideal for first time customers and for individuals who need the therapeutic energy of hashish with out the robust excessive.
Dr Greenshock is a uncommon CBD pressure due to its unusually excessive terpene ranges and indica-dominant traits. For years we now have been studying extra concerning the therapeutic properties of hashish and the wonderful advantages of CBD (Cannabidiol). New research are beginning to present that for the utmost advantages of CBD it’s best to mix it with THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). This is what’s known as the “Entourage Effect”. By combining totally different cannabinoids and terpenes the impact is way stronger versus simply one among these compounds working in isolation. This is what makes the Dr Greenshock so particular and medically benefi cial.
The first time I smoked the Dr Greenshock I used to be very impressed by the style. I’ve tried many CBD strains and usually they don’t look the most effective or have a lot of a taste profile. This not solely tasted nice however it had a improbable look to the completed flower.
The scent was like an earthy, Kush-mint-eucalyptus tree dipped in honey. Sparkling within the solar gentle these flowers didn’t appear to be any strange CBD plant, they had been extraordinary. When Mark first created this pressure, he didn’t know what the end result could be, however he knew it was going to be value it. Creating this pressure was step one however what did this cross actually have to supply? This is when pheno looking is critical and an important step if you find yourself looking for one thing unique. After rising and testing about 100 totally different phenotypes there was just one that had any CBD. This was how Dr Greenshock was born. It had an ideal 1 to 1 ratio with excessive ranges of myrcene which could be very uncommon in CBD strains.
This was not your regular hemp derived CBD plant. Pure hemp derived CBD doesn’t carry the identical results because it does whenever you add THC or different cannabinoids. Have you ever puzzled how one can get greater smoking one thing that has a decrease THC share than one other? That is as a result of sure terpenes and cannabinoids impact you in another way it’s not simply tetrahydrocannabinol by itself that creates that psychoactive magic. When you mix cannabinoids like CBG (Cannabigerol) and terpenes like Ocimene that each have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties you create synergy between them that’s stronger collectively.
Growing on the farm with Mark I used to be in a position to rise up shut and private with this magnificent pressure and get a greater thought of how she grew. We are all very captivated with hashish and whenever you fi nd one thing particular like this that may actually heal the world you wish to develop it with love. Dr Greenshock grows wonderful open air, producing medium to giant flowers which can be very dense.
Traits from the Bubba Kush carry over to the gorgeous bud construction of this plant with thick calyxs and a stable formation. Through the season as they start to flower fan leaves start to darken to an virtually purple tint whereas the frosty buds mature to perfection. As they attain their remaining days of flowering resin heads flip an virtually golden crimson and smells of lemon and menthol fill the environment. This was one thing I might take pleasure in smoking each night time, it was an uplifting excessive that relaxed my physique and took away my ache. It is actually wonderful whenever you hear tales like Charlotte’s Web which have actually saved a toddler’s life.
Not solely is CBD one thing that may assist with ache aid however it has been confirmed to cease epileptic seizures and helps cease the metastasizing of most cancers. This is true pure drugs that the world ought to be capable to use. Now that hashish is changing into authorized in increasingly states there are extra individuals making an attempt it for the primary time. Dr Greenshock is a superb pressure for brand spanking new customers who don’t need an uncomfortable excessive that’s too robust. The excessive could be very mellow with a balanced ratio of THC to CBD and it carries many medical benefi ts. This pressure is nice for anxiousness, despair, ache aid and muscle rest.
The human physique comprises a specialised system known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The physique produces these endocannabinoids, that are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. Studies have proven that by impacting endocannabinoid receptor exercise CBD can assist with persistent ache by decreasing irritation and interacting with these neurotransmitters. To make it brief: we’re made to make use of hashish. With the recognition of CBD rising and the research of how useful cannabidiol actually is Mark wished to make use of the Dr Greenshock and attempt to create some totally different varieties. About half of the vegetation that begin from seed after breeding with the Dr Greenshock have CBD ratios. An incredible instance is the Blues Chaser. Testing at 6% THC and 12% CBD this pressure was created by crossing Marks Dr Greenshock with an Agent Orange x Blue Moonshine male. Blues Chaser went on to position 1st in CBD flowers on the 2019 Weed Con West and it was all made doable due to the unique Dr Greenshock in its lineage.
This pressure is a superb outside plant, even with its indica dominant traits it handles the autumn rain with no issues and fights off any mould. Harvesting this plant begins round October eighth making it a reasonably fast producing plant. Easy to develop, appears to be like and smells nice plus has robust medicinal properties, Dr Greenshock is in my books an all-spherical winner. Over the previous few years I’ve been stepping into CBD strains extra and studying concerning the many optimistic results they’ve on sufferers.
Getting to develop and check the Dr Greenshock myself I noticed how particular this pressure actually was and why it stood out amongst different CBD strains. Terpenes play an enormous position within the total impact of hashish. With the excessive stage of myrcene within the Dr Greenshock this makes it not solely a ache-relieving pressure however it has the flexibility to chill out muscle groups and induce sleep.
I agree that pure CBD strains are nice for younger youngsters that don’t essentially want the consequences of THC however for older sufferers the Entourage Effect I really feel is the most effective reply. Cannabinoids work as a workforce and have a stronger impact once they work collectively due to this fact can alleviate ache extra effectively or battle towards different illnesses with a better likelihood of success. I’m a powerful believer that hashish is the most effective pure healer on the planet and Dr Greenshock is one thing I might advocate for everybody.
