shineapple strain


Seed Hunted

Genetics: Strawberry Banana x Kosher Kush

Breeder: Crockett

Bud Structure: Frosty, swollen, dense nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: This phenotype takes after its grandparent Banana OG in flavor and is very similar to its parent Strawberry Banana in looks. An extremely resinous plant that grows beautiful trichomes when treated right. A light, stoney hybrid high.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Mint Chocolate Chip x The Cube (Starfighter F2, cubed)

Breeder: Exotic Genetix

Bud Structure: Tight, dense, round golf-ball size buds. Lots of hairs.

Skelly’s Notes: Black Mamba #6 takes after her mother Mint Chocolate Chip in flavor and her father The Cube in resin production. This phenotype is a winner with a strong effect. Even some of our head extractors have been put to sleep by the Black Mamba #6.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Blue Magoo x Ms Universe

Breeder: Dynasty

Bud Structure: Small dense nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: This cross takes after its mother Blue Magoo in flavor, a very floral hybrid with hints of potpourri and mojitos, and its father Ms. Universe in structure and resin production. A super terpy and uplifting high can be found in both the flower and hydrocarbon extract forms of this strain.

Genetics: Constantine (Orange Valley OG x The Cube) x Cookies & Cream

Breeder: Exotic

Bud Structure: Chunky and dense nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: This strain has a refreshing high supported by the aroma of sweet sugary frosting and some chocolate funk. Constantine x Cookies & Cream will have large purple buds that are covered in resin when done right.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Mint Chocolate Chip x Orange Valley OG

Breeder: Exotic Genetics. Orange Valley OG father and Mint Chocolate Chip mother

Bud Structure: Small popcorn buds.

Skelly’s Notes: Chocolate Oranges #25 is a very resinous purple strain that features small budding areas and glistens when its crystals are fully formed. An extremely unique terpene profile that many users either love or hate, sometimes tasting like cherry cough syrup. An uplifting and energetic high that you can take on the go with you.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Dosidos x Gelato

Breeder: In House Seedbank. Both parent strains come from the infamous Cookies family mom Jigga and Berner

Bud Structure: Likes to stretch a little bit with bud size that resembles Girl Scout Cookies.

Skelly’s Notes: This phenotype leans heavily towards the flavor of a hearty chocolate funk gelato with just a hint of the cookie gas we get from Dosido. She does best as Water Hash, which is fortunate being that gelato leaning genetics are a bit hard to make work for solventless extraction.

Genetics: Dosidos x Velvet Pie F2

Breeder: In House

Bud Structure: Frosty long stretchy nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: This cross of Dosidos x Velvet Pie F2 comes together to make a brilliantly colorful, mellow highed flower that gives off notes of floral perfume, sandalwood and fresh baked cookies. Great for that morning wake up dab.

Genetics: Ghost OG x Bruce Banner #3 (OG Kush x Strawberry Diesel)

Breeder: Dark Horse

Bud Structure: Large and chunky like Bruce Banner.

Skelly’s Notes: A special phenotype in all its forms and an in-house favorite for consumption in hash and flower. We found a winner here that we love both for the resin production and aromatic terpenes that uniquely taste like strawberries dipped in gasoline. This strain packs a punch with a nice stoney high.

Genetics: GG4 x Dosido

Breeder: In House

Bud Structure: Extremely resinous dense nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: A strain covered in beautifully clean resin with a sweet earthy and cookie flavor. Gorilla Dosha #3 has a strong hitting high that can induce couchlock.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: GG4 x Cookies & Cream

Breeder: Exotic

Bud Structure: Colorful, dense and solid medium sized buds.

Skelly’s Notes: The perfect combination of GG4 x Cookies & Cream. A strong and couch-locking high with the rich taste of cookies, glue and spice.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Oregon Afghani x Oregon Huckleberry 2014

Breeder: Dynasty

Bud Structure: Chunky nugs full of resin and orange in color.

Skelly’s Notes: An uplifting and flavorful smoke that comes with a hazey tone of floral house cleaner. Tasting of blueberries and raspberries that are starting to rot.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Alien OG x Alien Kush x Tahoe OG (A special clone-only genetic that comes from the SFV OG)

Breeder: Pacific NW Roots

Bud Structure: Golf-ball sized nug.

Skelly’s Notes: Kaya’s Koffee F2 is a great genetic for hydrocarbon extraction featuring a greasy resin that grows all over the budding areas of the plant. The flavor profile is an earthy gasoline taste that can leave you glued to the couch after tasting it.

Genetics: Cindy 99 x Local H (Cuddlefish Hashplant x Diesel x ECSD IBL)

Breeder: Dominion Seeds/Duke Diamond

Bud Structure: Diesel traits with a nice transparent yellow color and larger airier bud structure.

Skelly’s Notes: Layla #6 is a promising and versatile new strain from a recent pheno hunt. Bred by an OG, Dominion Seeds/Duke Diamond, this pheno has a front end flavor of the Cindy 99 with grapefruit and strawberry hints. The nug structure has more Diesel traits as does the exhale.

Genetics: Lemon G x Face Off OG BX (Backcross)

Breeder: Archive

Bud Structure: Tight dense nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: Lemon Heads #4 is great as a solventless extract and allows us to bring one of our favorite flavor profiles of the Lemon G plant with a hint of gas to new solventless dabbers.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Athens x Lemon G13 x Dough Dawg (Animal Cookies + Stardawg)

Breeder: Cannarado Genetics

Bud Structure: Dense.

Skelly’s Notes: Lemon Tart Pucker #1 has a straight Lemon G13 flavor profile but luckily enough does not take after the Lemon G13 strain on bud structure. A nice dense lemon bud that we all love to smoke with an uplifting, on the go high. This 710 Labs classic is back as a lip smacking, lemon concentrated hydrocarbon extract, and for the first time is also available in flower form.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: NL5 x Dominion Skunk

Breeder: Dominon Seed Company

Skelly’s Notes: This genetic is a combination of two old school strains from the 90s bred by an OG from Virginia Beach. He has held down the east coast genetic game for quite some time. The Skunk and Northern Lights both come out strong. Skunk dominant with hints of Northern lights fruit and finishes with a creamy essence and true funk.

Genetics: OG Kush Breath x Dosidos (NorCal Cut)

Breeder: In House

Bud Structure: Large and well formed nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: This OG backcross of OG Kush Breath and the NorCal cut of Dosidos is a hash powerhouse. OGKB 2.1 #7 yields over 30% by dry weight in water hash and expresses tones of spice and cream.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Orange Valley OG x Cookies & Cream

Breeder: Exotic Genetics

Bud Structure: Small, dense and beautifully structured popcorn nugs caked in bright white trichomes and deep hues of orange.

Skelly’s Notes: This pheno of Orange Cream leans much heavier into the sweet orange and tangerine flavor profile with a hint of cookie on the backend. Sweet, uplifting and perfect for focusing and enjoying your day.

Genetics: Orange Valley OG x Cookies & Cream

Breeder: Exotic Genetics

Bud Structure: Small pearl size buds stacked on each other. Lots of character with orange and lime green color.

Skelly’s Notes: A pheno of Orange Cream that has much heavier, funky and cheesy notes. Orange Cream #27 is covered in sticky resin that reeks like oranges but still retains hints of the classic solventless staple Cookies & Cream. The flavors blend together nicely for a true to name experience. Uplifting and perfect for focusing and enjoying your day.

Genetics: Platinum Girl Scout Cookies x Oregon Huckleberry

Breeder: Dynasty Genetics

Bud Structure: Uniquely large for a Cookie strain.

Skelly’s Notes: A very resinous plant like most Cookie genetics that consistently tests around 30% THC. Platinum Huckleberry Cookies #22 is potent with a couchlock effect. A bit more fruity than most cookie strains and features a wonderful glisten to its resin. We love offering this genetic in the form of hash and resin.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Stardawg x Grape Pie

Breeder: In House

Bud Structure: Large dense, colorful nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: Visually Stardawg Pie is beautiful, showing purple and green hues simultaneously in flower form. The combination of Stardawg and Grape Pie creates that perfect morning high you’ve been craving with notes of earthy oolong tea and back notes of stardawg terps.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Alien OG x Blueberry F4

Breeder: In House

Bud Structure: Grape Pie leaning with dense colas covered in hairs.

Skelly’s Notes: Tester 51 is becoming one of our favorite genetics because of the rare combination of high levels of both CBD and THC. A great full-bodied high supported by the robust taste of cherries.

Genetics: White Tahoe Cookies x Faceoff OG

Breeder: Archive Seedbank. The White Tahoe Cookies was bred by Kush4Breakfast and it was used for this amazing cross

Bud Structure: Extremely resinous with longer stretchy nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: Another in house favorite, this strain has accents of its mother, White Tahoe Cookies, but goes even deeper into the sweet OG gas terpene profile it gives out. A gem in flower or concentrate, this strain creates nice sized resinous buds with deep effect. Our favorite way to consume it is as isolated trichomes in our water hash.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Virginia Beach Afghani x (Airborne G13 x “Hashplant x Afghani”)

Breeder: Dominon Seed Company

Skelly’s Notes: When hunting Shineapple we chose our keeper phenos based on the most dominant traits resembling the Virgina Beach Afghani. A genetic very similar to our chocolate oranges in flavor profile that is heavy fruit forward with hazy Jack Herer terpenes. A solid staple for hydrocarbon extracts and our live resin pods specifically. We will also be releasing some pheno’s of this for flower.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Girl Scout Cookies x Pink Panties

Breeder: Jigga & Sherbinski

Skelly’s Notes: A genetic staple we are glad to finally have our hands on. Depending on the batch of this strain it can lean either fruity or more cookies and gas. Anything the cookies crew touches always has a unique terp profile the industry is craving. Stacks super resinous calyxes on each big shaped round to oval. Dark hues of purple and even black tints in some batches. Will be released as flower mostly with some live resin pods as well.

Genetics: Motor Breath 15 x 92’ OG

Breeder: Cult Classic Seeds

Bud Structure: Chunky Buds.

Skelly’s Notes: A new school concoction of old school strains from the Chemdawg and OG family. Our phenotype leans more towards the Chemdawg family than the OG, but still carries nice hints of the OG gasoline.

Genetics: Watermelon Zkittles x Cookies

Breeder: Dying Breed Seeds

Skelly’s Notes: A short and squatty plant that puts out golf ball sized nuggests providing a new flavor to our library. We believe this strain tastes more like actual watermelon than our Watermelon Zkittlez #11 or #5. Great for flower, hash and truly the perfect noodle doink. This strain is great for a day time smoke.

Genetics: Watermelon Zum Zum #3 x OZ Kush

Breeder: Dying Breed

Bud Structure: Dense, resinous and chunky nugs.

Skelly’s Notes: This cross of Watermelon Zum Zum #3 x OZ Kush is one of our in house staples for Water Hash and Rosin. A genetic caked in clear glistening resin that tastes of fruitful sugar and comes together perfectly in both solventless and hydrocarbon concentrates.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Zkittlez and OZ Kush

Breeder: Dying Breed Seeds

Bud Structure: Christmas tree shaped nugs with a lime green hue.

Skelly’s Notes: A small variation on one of our classics, Z Cubed #5 is a newly released phenotype from our original genetic hunt. Bred by Dying Breed Seeds with two of their best strains Zkittlez x OZ Kush. This phenotype is true to the original Zkittlez genetic with an artificial fruit sweetness and a little lemon pledge, but this time paired with a tiny OG kick. We like to call this strain the lime pheno because it’s almost like a lime skittles flavor with fresh and bright fruits.

Predominant Terpenes (Top 5 from greatest to least presence):

Genetics: Zkittlez x OZ Kush (Eddy Lepp OG x Zkittlez)

Breeder: Zkittlez Family and 3rd Generation Family Farms

Bud Structure: Chunky with orange and lime green hues.

Skelly’s Notes: This phenotype features a very exotic terpene profile, tasting of candy skittles split with robust lemon lime and maybe even a fabric softener sheet. This strain does not do well in hash, but makes delicious flower and hydrocarbon extract like our badders and sauces. The high is more stoney and couchlock than uplifting, which resembles the OZ Kush.

10 Most Popular Indica Strains of All Time

No one’s really been counting. Backlot dealers haven’t been keeping statistics. And, even where sales have been legalized, no one has collected enough data to list the most popular Indica strains. Still, there wouldn’t be much of surprise that the most popular are still popular.

Given the medical potential in Indica strains, there won’t be many surprises. And, with seed-to-sale data collection, we’ll also have sophisticated information-bearing data before long.

10 popular Indica strains then and now!

1. Chenmdawg ranks high on everyone’s list. It’s a favorite of breeders and users. Attributed to Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead, it has a strong and pungent diesel smell with effects often considered a “gold standard.” The strain is a slightly Indica dominant hybrid with a 55: 45 ratio. Its 19% THC delivers a clear brain preceding a sleepy heavy stone.

The woodsy, earthy taste may have a hint of berries. But customers don’t buy it for flavor and aroma. It hasn’t slowed its use or availability, but medicinal marijuana dispensaries will be pitching it for ADHA, anxiety, arthritis, chronic pain, depression, insomnia, migraines, and PMS. If you’re into growing, it is a durable plant for inside or out, but the smell will give you away.

2. True OG (Kobe OG) has no reason to be ashamed of the word “true.” A multi-award-winning hybrid, its genetics are a closely guarded secret at Elemental Seeds. You will smell the kerosene, skunk, and Pine-Sol before you taste the forest pine. It might not bother those interested in 15% to 24% THC. (Some report 30%.) It will hit high and hard leaving you couch-locked, droopy, and exhausted. It’s powerful and euphoric and too much for first-time users.

It does treat chronic pain, headaches, insomnia, and nausea related to chemotherapy. But even veterans will find risk in higher doses and its concentrates. For those with a lot of experience, True OG makes a good smoke-alone experience, partly, because the aromas will keep others away.

3. Wedding Cake (Pink Cookies) was born of Cherry Pie and Girl Scout Cookies. It’s a little sensitive for home cultivation by new weed farmers. On the other hand, the aroma won’t give your grow room away. You’ll smell cherry, cinnamon, and sage and taste them plus lavender, musk, and sandalwood.

A 70% Indica, it boasts 18% THC. (Some tested at 27%.). That means an intense hit with sedating after effects for anxiety and stress. Still, others treat chronic pain, fibromyalgia, insomnia, Multiple Sclerosis, and sore muscles. Virgin smokers should think twice before starting with Wedding Cake. It could ruin a honeymoon.

4. Salmon River OG is an Oregon favorite with complex ancestry. It’s a good option for new farmers because it grows easily with little maintenance. Fragrances blend touches of blueberry, cocoa, coffee, and lemon zest.

The 20% to 29% takes a bit to show up as a gauzy euphoria, but once it does, it will last up to six hours settling into sleepy relaxing sedation. That sedation promises therapy for cramps, insomnia, spasms, and stress.

5. Pliny Purple comes from Grand Daddy Purple backcrossed with Grand Daddy Purple to produce a Merlot grape fragrance. Currently unavailable from the archives of Dusted Bud Genetics, Pliny Purple a 60: 40 Indica-dominant hybrid. That musky merlot aroma covers a diesel taster with hints of lavender and whiskey coming from its parents: Cherry Pine (California Cherries X Pliny Purple) and Santa Cruz OG (Sour Diesel X OG Kush).

This Purple offers a long-lasting high shared between brain and body before delivering a deeply narcotic relaxation. It will ease anxiety, depression, and pain —or make you forget them. And, it grows well at home with enough yield to attract commercial farmers.

6. Barbara Bud crosses Shishkaberry and an Afghani Indica hybrid father for medicinal benefits. Resilient to cold, drought, heat, and pests, it’s a good option for new growers. Floral, lemony, and herbal, Barbara Bud has THC hovering above 14%.

Users report a quick-hitting and long-lasting high with a creative and social spin. A big hit in Canada’s medical marijuana history, Barbara Bud is recommended for treating acid reflux, anxiety, depression, inflammation, and pain. Some researchers credit it with stimulating the immune system to reduce tumor growth.

7. Big Bang 2 comes from a gorgeous plant rich with Mardi Gras colors of gold, purple, orange, and green. It’s confirmed 22.5% THC will leave you locked and sedated. A product of feminized seeds, it doubles the quality and potency of the original Big Bang.

Heir to the benefits of Northern Lights and Jack Herer, it grows easily and yields heavily. Big Bang 2 smokes rich and smooth for chilling alone or with friends. And the heavy long-lasting relaxation may be good for bedtime but not for work. There’s no uplift or clear thinking, here.

8. Cheesy Dick, another beautiful plant with long richly purple leaves, holds a moderate 16% THC. It’s a 96% Indica out of Big Buddha Cheese and Moby Dick with a rotting cheese smell as ugly as the plant is pretty. But it is dessert-tasty.

The taste starts with cream cheese and spice turning to dried fruits and spice. Chances are you won’t remember the start of the experience because it moves steadily into a helpless couch-locked stone. Medicinal dispensaries recommend Cheesy Dick for appetite loss, chronic pain, inflammation, and insomnia. Try to raise this one at home, and the odor will betray you.

9. Purple Caper balances 60% Indica with 40% Sativa. Its unforgettable sweet aroma comes from a GDP X Sour D cross with White Widow X Unknown Pure Indica. It grows well indoors with brilliantly-green leaves to produces large flowers.

The buzz creeps up on you with a dreamy bliss that evolves into a deep and relaxing sedation, a full couch-lock before bed to manage appetite loss, chronic pain, depression, insomnia, muscle spasms, nausea, and more.

10. Peppermint Kush is not a spearmint taste. It brings its pepper from Stella Blue and mint from Nepali Kush and a 90% pure Indica dominance. It will flower in 55 days inside or outside for a bigger than usual yield.

The 22% THC excites and energizes your brain before it slams your body to the couch. Its strong relaxing effects help sleeping disorders, stress, and depression. Used with an inhaler, it treats asthma and bronchial congestion.

There are more, of course

All sorts of Kush, most of the Cookies, Northern Lights, Blue Mystic, Brainwreck, Trainwreck, and more offer high moderate to high THC experiences. Most are too heady for new users, but all deliver significant medicinal benefits.
