Aeronaut (Royal Purple Kush) is an indica cultivar with medium to high levels of THC. It’s dense, sticky flowers are deep green with hints of purple (as the name would suggest), covered in orange pistils and a healthy coating of trichomes. Aeronaut has a floral scent, with grape and herbal accents.
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.
Caryophyllene is a balancing terpene common in basil, oregano, hops, and rosemary, and in spices such as cloves, caraway, black pepper, and cinnamon. It commonly presents notes of spice and pepper and has been associated with anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. The terpene beta-caryophyllene (BCP) shows promise for potentially helping treat anxiety and depression.
