This week’s Hemp Day Strain Review is Cherry Diesel, a Sativa strain grown by Clear River Farm of Laughlin and sold at Nevada Medical Marijuana in Henderson.
Cherry Diesel is a mix between Cherry OG and Turbo Diesel. A Sativa dominant strain, it produces a very uplifting and energizing effect.
Clear River Farm has done an excellent job of producing this quality strain. Lab tested; the THC content stands at 26.82%. A very high level that ensures the effects of the medicine will last for a few hours.
Terpenes and Cannabinoids in Cherry Diesel
One special note about Cherry Diesel is the wide range of terpenes and cannabinoids that combine to make an excellent entourage effect. A few of these in particular stand out.
The first being a 1.2 mg level of Myrcene. For a Sativa dominant strain this is an impressive level. Myrcene is a very important terpene. It’s found in many places in nature besides cannabis. Some examples include hops, mango fruit, eucalyptus and lemongrass. The effects of this terpene help with insomnia and can be a very effective anti-inflammatory and sleep aid. Myrcene’s most impressive effect is its ability to help break down the blood brain barrier. This allows the patient to feel the effects of the medicine very quickly and can produce a longer lasting high.
The Cherry Diesel from Clear River also came in with a Limonene count of .7 mg. A terpene that produces a citrus smell, giving the flower a rich, fragrant aroma.
One other important terpene found in this Cherry Diesel is 3.3mg of terpinolene. Known for producing a smoky odor, it also helps to produce a unique smell. Terpinolene is found in many places in nature; apples, lilac, cumin, and conifers to name just a few. It has proven anti-fungal and anti-bacterial traits.
The combined effects of these terpenes produce a very rich tasting and aromatic flower. Clear River Farm has produced a quality bud that does its original forbearers justice. If you prefer to have the high energy levels of a Sativa but the calming effect of an Indica, give this Cherry Diesel a shot. You won’t be disappointed.
