The more I explore strains rich in terpinolene, the more I appreciate its versatility as the basis for a plethora of fruit flavors. Flanked by subtly varying ratios of limonene, myrcene, and pinene, the sweet and creamy terpene can mimic lemon, orange, melons, stone fruit, and blueberries. In conjunction with caryophyllene, though, we get a cool, juicy lime that tingles the nostrils and awakens the palate. This interaction of aromatic molecules defines Justice Cannabis Co.’s Lime OG, a compelling hybrid from their recently launched Crops brand that reminded me of why I first began to love smoking cannabis.
Originally bred by Exotic Mike, Justice Cannabis Co.’s Lime OG crosses Lime Skunk with Triple OG, letting uncomplicated genetics shine through with loud-and-clear terpene expression. A single gloriously chunky bud dominated the eighth picked up from Greengate Chicago. Its kelly-green tissue sported scales of purple, like an entrancing tropical fish.
Instantly, the smell of tart lime curd shot out of the rather bulky jar and intensified as the golf ball-sized nug was picked apart. The 23.21% THCa flower was sticky with well-cured resin and free of excess humidity.
I smoked Lime OG both in joints and using a glass chillum and was impressed at the snow-white ash and immaculately clean burn from either method. My lungs corroborated the quality of the smoke with expanded breath capacity after deep inhales.
Upon conclusion of my sessions, I found myself in the grips of a classic OG high, a balanced state of serene exhilaration as my neck and shoulder tension evaporated. On two out of three occasions using this strain, I was experiencing gastrointestinal unease, which promptly subsided, allowing the munchies to claim the territory anew.
Medical users hoping to treat acute nausea or anxiety would likely find minimally-impairing relief in this cultivar that they could turn to at any point in the day without sacrificing mental sharpness. Beyond its regulating properties, the strain made the more grueling aspects of daily life a great deal less daunting, earning it a permanent spot on my “Work Sativa” roster whenever it happens to come around.
