  • May 8, 2020
  • Strain Review

The Abacus hemp strain is an Indica dominant strain. Breeders crossed Alien Sour Apple and Pebble OG to achieve a literal masterpiece that looks striking and also tastes with considerable jazz.

In the Beginning and History

First harvested in 2017, makes Abacus a new kid on the block in hemp world. The history and lineage of the Abacus strain is rich in potency and flower yield because of the rich lineage from Alien Sour Apple and Pebble OG.

Abacus hemp strain hit the fast track running because of its popularity with the hemp product users for pleasure and for medicinal benefits. This was and continues to be fortunate for the breeders and cultivators. Most samples of the Abacus strains are measured between 0.2% – 0.3% THC and 14 – 20% CBD.

Experience the Experience

Dark green nugs scream sexy as the Abacus CBD hemp flower announces itself with a lasting perfume impression. Abacus is a real firecracker as it stands tall with terpene rich-CBD. It is a hemp product that puts smiles on faces and razor-sharp focus.

Abacus is engineered for the experienced smoker who wants more. Reports from smoking users of Abacus CBD nugs report a balanced combination of heightened endurance and a relaxing agent.

Purple-tinged buds and strong aroma hit the nose sharply with a pungent finish. A terpene strain which is high in many cannabinoids, Abacus has a complex profile that provides a full-bodied smoking experience.

Abacus Genetics

Abacus passes tests for purity and is certified at 14% to 20% CBD and 0.3% THC. This Abacus cultivar results in bold strong CBD dense hemp buds which crawl with crystallization.

Abacus was first bred in an engineered process over a complete growing season. Because of this long breeding period, this hemp strain is an extremely stable one. The Abacus hemp flower is also tolerant to both heat and cold and resistant to mildew and mold. These traits lend well to an East Coast growing environment as well. Abacus hemp plant flowers for around 7 – 8 weeks and grows into a medium-tall height plant.

The Abacus hemp strain has a 99% germination rate which results in high levels of CBD resin with qualities for ample CBD oil extraction.

Color, Taste, Aroma

A terpene-rich high CBD hemp plant gleams with purplish buds and an outstanding smell. On the outside, it sports a dark floral green color that makes for a beautiful flower. The smell can be unexpected if you have not long been a flower smoker. Floral with a hint of musk leaves a strong impression.

Flavors of the Abacus hemp strain are rich in earthy smokey savor with contributing tastes from the terpene-rich profile.

Abacus Therapeutic Benefits

Due to its high-CBD content, Abacus is great for helping with stress, anxiety, nausea, migraines, and other chronic pain from arthritis.

The CBD health benefits of the Abacus hemp strain come in a variety of methods to apply. There are oils, creams and sub-lingual drops. One method may work better for one individual and another for the other person. Another variable is the type of pain, for example, that one has. If trying to alleviate pain from osteoarthritis, sub-lingual drops may not be the best application. However, a roll-on or cream applied directly to the pain location will be more effective.

In Conclusion

The Abacus strain is an impressive hemp strain that appeals to the eye, pleases the taste buds and soothes the nasal smell of it all. High CBD content provides relief for many who live with chronic pain.

Abacus hemp strain hit the fast track running because of its popularity with the hemp product users for pleasure and for medicinal benefits.

Cherry Abacus Hemp Flower

Our only strain from Colorado CBD Seed, Cherry Abacus isn’t a strain to sleep on… though it may help put you to sleep. At 16.2% total potential CBD, Cherry Abacus still packs a helluva punch both in terms of taste and effect.

A cross between Abacus and Original Cherry, Cherry Abacus is the only Indica-dominant hemp strain of Sunset Lake’s 2019 cultivar. While they didn’t grow as big or as tall as our other strains, Cherry Abacus presented with fabulous shades of purple and red in our fields.

Growing Info

Our Cherry Abacus buds were grown with no cover cropping this year. There were no pesticides used at all in the production of any of Sunset Lake’s hemp. Instead, Sunset Lake used Trichogramma Parasitic Wasps to control the unwanted pest population and keep our hemp happy.

Aroma and Taste

Cherry Abacus’s dense little buds come in all shades of red, orange, and purple (so much so you can hardly pick out the underlying green).

Compared to Sunset Lake’s other strains, Cherry Abacus’s smell is subdued, but the taste is dynamite— like cherries and cola. The effects are just as nice. Users tell us about the fruity relief that washes over them.

Why Cherry Abacus?

These dense little nugs taste and smell amazing. Cherry Abacus hemp flower leans more towards indica than any of our other strains and makes it best for those looking to unwind after a long day and get to bed.

Buds or smalls?

There isn’t much of a difference between our smalls and our jarred flower. The small buds, bagged, tagged, and ready to grind are sorted, machine-trimmed small buds. The buds that we put into our jars are hand-trimmed and more often than not bigger buds from higher up on the plant.

The Terpenes

The top three terpenes tested in our Cherry Abacus are:

𝛃-Myrcene – Also found in mango and hops, Myrcene has long been used in some cultures as a sedative and muscle relaxant. Myrcene is also responsible for beer’s peppery and balsam aroma.

𝛃-Caryophyllene – Commonly found in cloves, hops, and rosemary, beta-caryophyllene has the distinctive spiciness of black pepper.

ɑ-Pinene – Especially aromatic, Pinene is a terpene that smells a lot like pine trees. It can be found in a few of our favorites— pine needles, rosemary, basil, and orange peels.
