Rockstar Kush | Spinach
THC: 16-24% CBD: 0-1%
Rockstar Kush is a frosty hand-trimmed indica-dominant strain from Spinach in Stayner, Ont. It has a very strong THC potency potential and is known for its peppery, piney and sour aromas, which come from a terpene profile that includes myrcene (found in mango, lemon grass, hops and thyme), caryophyllene (also in black pepper, cloves and balsam) and limonene (in citrus fruits and juniper).
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.
Humulene is a motivating terpene found in hops, coriander, cloves, and basil, among other plants. Its aroma presents as woodsy and earthy with citrus overtones. Early research has shown humulene to be anti-proliferative, meaning it may prevents cancer cells from growing. It is known to be effective in suppressing appetite, making it a potential weight loss tool. It is also associated with reducing inflammation, relieving pain and fighting bacterial infections.
Myrcene is a mellowing terpene found in high quantities in mangoes so eating it before consuming cannabis will 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.
Linalool is a calming terpene present in lavender, laurel, mint, birch trees, and rosewood. It is often present in high concentrations in sativa plants. Contemporary studies have shown that linalool is a powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic. Inflammation is a major component in the pain profile of cancers, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and arthritis.
Limonene is an uplifting terpene found in citrus rinds, juniper, peppermint, cannabis and rosemary, and its aroma boasts notes of lemon and orange. Limonene is the second-most common terpene in nature.
