Indica Dominant Hybrid Marijuana Ozark Mountain candy

Ozark Mountain Candy

I never read it in a book
I never saw it on a show
But I bought Ozark Mountain Candy
And now I’m gonna smoke
If you fill a bong with water
I’ll grind the flower well
If you toke it up with me man
There’s gonna be a funky smell

 

As soon as I heard the name Ozark Mountain Candy I was interested in picking up this strain. Right away the name got my brain thinking of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. My excitement only grew when I learned this strain is a Cobalt Fire phenotype! I am a big fan of Cobalt Fire, an indica hybrid that hits me similarly to Citral Glue, and had to pick up this strain with the local moniker. Ozark Mountain Candy is the beautiful baby of Blueberry Haze and Gift Fire and has a skunky-sweet scent. Researching this strain online was difficult as I had limited resources to pull from, but I was pot going to let that stop me and did some thorough investigating of my own.

I brought an eighth of Ozark Mountain Candy from Flora Farms home with me for the weekend and my sweet tooth could not have been happier. The first thing I do when I open a bag is take a big whiff of the goodness that’s been trapped inside. I lifted the bag to my nose and this strain hit me with an earthy, piney scent with a hint of sweetness lingering in my nose. The buds were a light green color with a light trichome frosting and a few amber pistils waving at me. I selected two of the chunkiest buds to be canna-sumed and looked them over more closely. If you throw a light on a piece of this candy you’ll see “It’ll Shine When it Shines.” I love taking a peek at things under a spotlight to T-H-See the trichomes glisten, and Ozark Mountain Candy doesn’t disappoint. If you’ve never looked at cannabis under a spotlight do yourself a favor and prepare to be amazed.

The smoke itself was smooth and delicious with sweet piney notes and an immediately noticeable head change. I found myself smiling and enjoying the euphoric feeling that washed over me. While my body felt relaxed my head seemed to carry most of the weight of the smoke, but I didn’t feel tired or couch locked. The relaxed and uplifting feeling I got was perfect for walking with my dog in the fall weather. “If you wanna know a secret, you’ve got to promise not to tell,” but I love crunching leaves under my feet and I was looking for the biggest, cronchiest ones to smoosh.  This was the perfect strain for a stroll through the thick blanket of leaves covering the ground. Overall I think this is a wonderful strain for those looking for relief from anxiety or stress, and the uplifting effects make it good for combating depression. I was still capable of accomplishing a lot over the weekend so don’t worry about this strain forcing you to “live your life from inside of a room” as this indica leaning hybrid isn’t one to leave you in-da-couch.

 

From the online resources I was able to find I discovered the terpene profile of Ozark Mountain Candy to be myrcene, pinene, humulene, caryophyllene, and limonene. I could not find which of these are the dominant three, but since we’ve talked about all these already I thought now would be a great time to talk about the Entourage Effect and why all these different terpenes and cannabinoids matter in the end result of a strain. Let’s get ready for some science. The Entourage Effect is what we refer to as the effect a particular blend of cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBC, etc.) and terpenes have on an individual. Which is just a fancy way of saying, the Entourage Effect is what we refer to as the overall feeling the strain produces. You may notice that some strains high in THC hit you in a way that seems to produce less of the desired feeling than a different strain you’ve had that was lower in THC, sometimes by a significant amount. You can even notice this when smoking one harvest and then another (that’s phenotype coming into play) as there are varying levels of each cannabinoid and terpene in every plant. When you consume cannabis you are not only consuming THC but everything else in the plant or product. Our bodies contain receptors for cannabinoids and our bodies absorb terpenes as well. When our body starts receiving multiple cannabinoids and terpenes at once all of their effects combine to make us feel a specific way. When we find a strain that has the perfect mixture for the desired effect it becomes a favorite strain. Keep track of which strains you enjoy and start looking at their terpene and cannabinoid profiles. Once you discover which terpene profiles line up with the effects you enjoy most you’ll be able to identify strains that will work for you at a glance! Isn’t science cool! Now go have a medication break, you’ve earned it after making it through this last paragraph!

Joking and Toking:

My elbow was bending in a funny way so I went to the doctor. She told me it was nothing to worry about because I was double jointed. I told her I knew that already and pulled out the two spliffs I had rolled that morning, and I still don’t know what that has to do with my arm.
