Las Vegas Cannabis Strains You Need to Try This Month (June 2018)

(All cannabinoid percentages/terpene servings are estimates that may vary from batch to batch.)

1. Cookie Face

Parent Strains: Girl Scout Cookies + Do-Si-Dos

THC: 20%

Limonene: 6 mg/g

b-Caryophyllene: 5 mg/g

b-Myrcene: 2.5 mg/g

Cookie Face is, without a doubt, one of the breakout hit strains of the season.

While technically an indica, this sticky, purple-budded flower functions more like an indica-dominant hybrid.

So you don’t have to worry about an intense cerebral effect or a body sedation that sends you straight into the floor.

Instead, you’ll feel a cool, calm, relaxing sensation in both your head and body.

It almost like the strain is saying to you, “Hey there, friend. How’s it going? Let’s see if we can turn the dial down on those racing thoughts and take you on a nice little mellow ride.”

And then Cookie Face takes you right up to the edge of full sedation…and then it does an about-face. You feel an uplifting, boost of energy that can make things like focusing on social interactions a breeze.

Good for treating: anxiety, depression, stress, headaches

2. Adonis #6

Parent Strains: White Ribbon and Green Ribbon

THC: 26.5%

CBN: 0.65%

Limonene: 7 mg/g

b-Myrcene: 5.5 mg/g

b-Caryophyllene: 3.3 mg/g

Are you familiar with Adonis, the figure from Greek mythology?

He was a hunter. And he was fine.

So fine, in fact, that the goddess of love herself, Aphrodite, was head-over-heels smitten by him.

That’s the key word here for Adonis #6: L-O-V-E.

Visually, it’s love at first sight: light green flower with bright orange hairs, covered with tiny crystals that offer the promise of something truly exceptional.

The smell and taste is a lemony skunk, and the effect is felt primarily in the body, especially in your chest region. Like someone’s put a warm hand over your heart, and that warmth is spreading from your heart into your limbs.

Next comes the cerebral euphoria which, after a while, decreases in intensity just enough to allow you to focus.

No room for negative thoughts or anger while under this strain’s influence. After all, Adonis #6 is a lover, not a fighter.

Good for treating: stress, anxiety, depression, pain, insomnia

3. Poison Ivy

THC: 18%

CBD: 0.5%

b-Myrcene: 3.6 mg/g

Limonene: 3 mg/g

b-Caryophyllene: 1.3 mg/g

Whether it’s the plant you try to avoid on camping trips or the Batman villainess who terrorizes Gotham City, “poison ivy” is a name that usually fills us with dread…

…but not today.

There’s a new Poison Ivy in town. And for folks suffering from insomnia, she’s practically a superhero.

If you’re new to cannabis, brace yourself when taking that first dose. The strain’s lemon-and-diesel flavor combination might throw you off a bit.

But you won’t have much time to think about the taste because Poison Ivy’s sedative effects will hit you like a thunderclap.

Before long, you won’t feel like you’re in this world anymore. You’ve punched a ticket to Couch-Lock-Ville, and there’s nothing to do now except…well…nothing!

Maybe you can watch a little TV. Or you can just close your eyelids, let your mind drift, and enjoy the out-of-this-world experience that Poison Ivy is giving you.

Good for treating: stress, anxiety, severe pain, insomnia, nausea, appetite loss
