For decades, master growers have crossbred marijuana plants into hundreds of new and exciting strains. While this created more options for users, it’s made it much more difficult to predict a strain’s effects based on its lineage or genetics. This forced users to spend much more time and money researching and experimenting to find strains that would produce the results they wanted. However, thanks to the legalization in many states and subsequent research of marijuana, there is mounting support to look at a strain’s cannabinoid and terpene profiles to best determine what effects it may have on a user – which is exactly what we have done at Calypso.
As we mentioned in our last Product Launch blog post, our products come in three unique varieties: Chill, Cruise, and Charge – which we determine by rigorous in-house and third-party testing. Through these tests, our team of experts identify which cannabinoids and terpenes are present and at what quantities to accurately predict the effects of each strain before carefully categorizing them. By doing the leg work, we help to remove much of the guesswork for our customers, making their medical marijuana experience simpler, cheaper, and more effective.
Keep in mind, plants (like humans) are always evolving and even in a controlled environment some variation between crops can occur. This means the number of cannabinoids or terpenes a strain has can vary each harvest. As quality growers we monitor our plants, testing and re-testing each harvest to ensure we provide accurate, up-to-date information to our dispensaries and patients.
Now, let’s explore Chill, Cruise, and Charge to learn the effects of each and how they can be used to provide relief for your symptoms.
Calm, relaxed, and sleepy.
Our line of Chill products includes strains with sedative effects and properties. This often involves terpenes such as linalool, myrcene, and pinene, which are known to promote relaxation or drowsiness. With sleepy euphoria and a heavy body buzz, you’re sure to unwind and drifted into a deep state of relief with this variety.
Blissful, poised, and sociable.
Our line of Cruise products includes strains with a balance of sedative and energizing characteristics. Here, you might see a wide variety of terpenes like pinene, humulene, caryophyllene, and limonene, but none is completely dominant – each concentration level is relatively even. Our cruise products offer both mind and body highs that remain mild enough to keep you comfortable and alert. It’s the versatile choice.
Euphoric, uplifted, and active.
Our line of Charge products includes strains with energizing effects and properties. When you think of Charge, think of bright citrus and fresh peppermint. Terpenes like limonene, ocimene, and terpinolene can elevate your mood and energy level. For a stimulating experience, choose Charge, and feel your mind and body elevate to new heights.
One last thing that’s important to remember is that each user is unique. In addition to a strain’s chemical profile, your unique biochemistry, tolerance, and other factors can influence your experience with medical marijuana. As you begin treatment, we recommend you record your experiences with any medical marijuana product you use, along with its effects and particular elements – such as % of THC or specific terpenes. By logging your experiences, you’ll be better equipped to determine what products or compound profiles work best for you.
