The one terpene I recognize by aroma and flavor with the most ease is terpinolene. Bedford Grow has several strains in which terpinolene is the leading terpene. Bedford Grow’s new strain release Candy Coast, picked up from Maribis Springfield, is one of those terpinolene heavy strains.
Candy Coast is a sativa-leaning hybrid cross of Lollypop and (3rd Coast Panama Chunk and Amnesia Sour Diesel). This eighth tested at 19.29% THCa, 0.57% THC, 0.33% CBGa, and 20.19% total cannabinoids. Candy Coast is part of a batch of new in-house strains from Bedford Grow that are crossed with the 3rd Coast Panama Chunk and Amnesia Sour Diesel, including Wild Berry Breath, Lake Effect, Rainbow Sour, Candy Coast, Mecha Chem Diesel, Galloping Ghost OG, Prism, and Chicago Dawg.
As mentioned, Candy Coast’s primary terpenes included terpinolene (41%), α-pinene, β-pinene, limonene, α-terpineol, and β-caryophyllene. Secondary terpenes included α-humulene, ocimene, endo-fenchyl alcohol, and y-terpinene. This eighth came as several dense thumb-tip sized buds with light and dark green colors mixed with white trichomes and bright orange pistils.
The aroma from the jar hit with that distinct lemon-lime, pine, sour diesel, and sweet hops. The flavor also carried the terpinolene heavy lemon-lime, sweet turpentine, and sour pine, diesel on the front end of the inhale. The back end of the exhale delivered and added creamy pine, citrusy hops, heavier sour diesel, and a touch of sweet earthiness.
Again, this Bedford Grow sativa-leaning effects fit well for our Work Sativa series. The onset for the head high started slowly and then crept in with a heightened cerebral buzz, energy, and relatively clear thought process, which allowed me to medicate with Candy Coast while working morning, day, or afternoon.
Even with higher doses, the mental effects did not add raciness but rather a heavy stoned feeling in the back of the eyes and head that was aware and relaxed at the same time. Late in the buzz and with higher doses, the uplifting and euphoric head high transitioned into a hazier feeling of peace and content that again sat heavy in the eyes and upper crown of the head.
The body buzz also crept in as the head high became stronger. The epicenter of the body buzz started in the back of the head, neck, and upper back and spread down the torso and into the each limb. Though heavy, the body buzz still allowed me to accomplish work at my desk, run physical errands, or relax on the couch.
The overall body buzz took away my muscle cramping but did not saddle me with a body buzz that weighed me down. The cerebral head high and relaxing but active body buzz aligned well with a Work Sativa. I mostly medicated with Candy Coast in the afternoons, so the hazy part of the head high at the end lined up with dinnertime and a boost in appetite.
Strains heavy in terpinolene, depending on the cross, consistently deliver for me a distinct aroma, flavor, and functioning head high and body buzz that allows me to work, binge television, talk to friends, or game for hours. Candy Coast was another one of those strains that have now been added to the Work Sativa list.
