Now that Canna Provisions Director of Cultivation, Greg “Chemdog” Krzanowski is releasing his first legal crop of top shelf craft cannabis flower line – Smash Hits – there’s only one thing left to do – learn about the strains.
And then buy those strains. Oh, and then sign up for our email list because it’s the only way to get first notification of new strain drops before supplies run out.
Okay that’s three things. Or you can just keep reading. Actually yes keep doing that. First, check out the incredible strain art by artist Nate Duval:
IRENE KUSH X MEGA CHEM
This is a jewel of the Smash Hits line for those looking for classic OG head heavy relaxed nature high with an uplifted and jovial mood. The Irene Kush lineage fueled by the special Mega Chem line – basically Chem D and Chem 4 crossed onto themselves – brings you energized pep-in-your-step front effects closed out by a long body melt that’s just relaxing enough yet leaves you ready for task completion and motivation when called for. Tasty, gorgeous, and fast onset means this lady is a real real connoisseur’s delight.
FAMILY HISTORY: Irene Kush x “Mega Chem” (Chem D x Chem 4 x Chem selfed)
PALATE: Earth musk funk with twinge of spice, berry, pine, and diesel gas.
EFFECT: Hits first with a sativa blast of euphoric uplift followed quickly by classic indica body heavy and supreme chill vibes.
TERPENES: 0.74%. TOP: b-Caryophyllene, d-Limonene, linalool, a-Humulene
“I would say probably 85% of the stuff out there [called Chemdog] isn’t really what it’s labeled. They’re just throwing a label on it to sell it. A lot of the strains, I can take one smell and know this isn’t it. They just use the name.
I don’t want to mention names, but there are a few well-known celebrity brands out there right now claiming to sell Chemdog, and it’s just not Chemdog.” – Chemdog speaking to Cannabis & Tech Today’s Spring 2021 issue available here.
Digging Deeper into The Irene Strain
AKA Irene Kush, Irene OG, and Irene OG Kush. Looking for a fast-hitter with famous genetics and a perfect balance of energetic pop followed by relaxation? The Irene strain may be your new go-to. A well-balanced hybrid with a complex collection of aromatics and effects, Irene plays no games.
Strain type: Is Irene Indica or Sativa?
Irene is a hybrid strain with a bit of a Sativa lean. Therefore, you get a nice toss-up between the head and body high with a burst of energy followed by a leveled state of relaxation.
More Irene Strain Characteristics
Irene is a cross between Irene Kush and Mega Chem. Mega Chem has an impressive genetic makeup, including Chem D and Chem 4. However, Irene Kush has also garnered a lot of attention from cannabis aficionados because of its high-energy effects, potentially due to its rumored lineage from OG Kush. Of course, specific genetics can vary from grower to grower.
Irene serves up this fascinating set of aromatics that’s just as complex as the strain itself. You get a nice musky funk right off, but a nice spicy, piney aroma soon follows. The base notes are sweeter with hints of berry and gas.
To say that the Irene strain is flavorful is an understatement. This girl is enough to make your mouth water with such an interesting collaboration of flavors. The first impression is herbal spice, but a mellow sweetness lands on the back of your tongue for the finish.
Irene has an impressive terpene profile. The top terpenes include beta-caryophyllene, limonene, linalool, and humulene, which explains the telltale spicy/sweetness and finish of diesel.
Effects: How will Irene make me feel?
Initially, Irene brings in this power punch of euphoric uplift with a bit of a head buzz that happens almost right away. So, you get this added pep at the start that can get you up and moving. However, those front-loaded effects soon settle into this body-melting effect that leaves you giddy and totally relaxed.
