      • Offers a smooth smoke
      • Berry, citrus flavor notes with a nice skunk finish
      • Uplifting blend; great for morning use

Strain Description

Berry Blossom is one of our most popular strains at Hemp Barn for its high CBD yield and smooth, terpene-rich toke. The strain can be found in both indoor-grown and sun-grown varieties. The myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene terpene profile really lend a nice, citrus/berry flavor profile and a slight skunk. The uplifting effects of the strain are more noteworthy than with some other high-CBD strains.

      • Woodsy flavor with a hint of lemon

Strain Description

The original high-THC OG Kush is one of the most recognizable names in cannabis. Through careful selective breeding using Sativa-dominant cannabis and high-CBD hemp, the hemp-based, high-CBD, low-THC version of OG Kush was born. This strain has a noteworthy aroma thanks to its zesty terpene profile that boasts a citrusy, woodsy fragrance. And, the relaxing effects of OG Kush are just as noteworthy as the name itself.
