The Tropical Blast hemp strain is a hybrid cultivar of unknown genetic origins, though it is suspected to have ACDC genetics in its lineage.
Tropical Blast hemp flower buds have a tight structure and an intense aroma. With a name like Tropical Blast, it is no surprise that the terpene profile consists of citrusy berry notes with undertones of hops.
Primary terpenes include:
Myrcene: This terpene is found in hops & fruits like mangos. If you enjoy the ‘peppery’ finish in craft beers, you can thank Myrcene. Research has shown this terpene may be useful as an anti-inflammatory.
Farnesene: Found in the skin of green apples, sandalwood, cedarwood, hops, turmeric, grapefruit, potatoes, gardenias, myrrh, ginger, and patchouli! Thought to be responsible for the calming & soothing effects of cannabis. Studies have found this terpene to be an effective muscle relaxer, with potential for use as an anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antibacterial. More recent studies have even shown that Farnesene may help in preventing tooth decay.
Limonene: d-Limonene is the main chemical form, found in the rinds of citrus fruits, such as lemons, limes, and oranges. It is most concentrated in oranges and makes up around 97% of the essential oils found in orange peels. Limonene is one of the most common terpenes found in nature and has several potential health benefits. These include anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, and antioxidant properties which may aid in the prevention of disease.
At around 16% CBD and 20% total cannabinoids Tropical Blast CBD flower provides potent effects in addition to robust flavor. This a well-balanced hybrid strain that is uplifting & great for promoting a sense of calm and comfort.
