50 Kush | Up Cannabis
THC: 12-18% CBD: 0-1%
50’s large, dense buds are coated in silvery-white trichomes. Grown in Great Emerald Hall, hand-sorted, hand finished, and generally very pampered by our grow team, this strain matches it’s roots well with emerald green and purple hues. Terpenes like Myrcene, Beta Pinene and Alpha Pinene give 50 an earthy wood taste and a sour lemon scent with pine undertones.
Myrcene is a mellowing terpene found in high quantities in mangoes, eating it before consuming cannabis may strengthen the effects of THC and increase its absorption rate. With an earthy and musky scent, myrcene is also the most common terpene in cannabis, and is often found in larger quantities in indica-dominant strains. Strains that contain 0.5% of this terpene are usually indicas with sedative effects. It has also been reported that myrcene is useful in reducing inflammation and chronic pain and is known for being recommended as a supplement during cancer treatments.
Healers have used a-pinene for centuries. They’d scrape bark from coniferous trees, make a resin, and use this to treat people with congestion or parasitic infections. The Dutch would also use alpha pinene-containing juniper berries to make healing tonics.
Feelings of alertness and focus are common in strains containing high levels of pinene. Short term memory retention may also be improved, and creative inspiration may be stimulated. Pinene is also known to counteract some of the adverse effects of THC, such as paranoia.
