Exploring the Cannabis Multiverse During Comic Con
Like superheroes in different dimensions, each cannabis phenotype possesses its own unique characteristics, encompassing a mesmerizing spectrum of flavors, aromas, and effects. - Written by Randy Villarba
San Diego Comic Con International comes to the San Diego Convention Center every summer. Within the vast and intricate realm of comic book universes, the concept of the multiverse reigns supreme. It encompasses a mind-boggling array of parallel realities and alternate dimensions that exist concurrently, each with its own distinct set of laws, characters, and histories. These multiverses represent an expansive tapestry of possibilities, where countless variations of familiar superheroes, villains, and worlds coexist and interact.
A perfect example would be Peter Parker as Spider Man in one universe yet in another universe Miles Morales is your friendly neighborhood spider. In cinematic storylines this would be equal to having Christian Bale as Dark Knight in Christopher Nolan’s universe and Michael Keaton reprising his role as Tim Burton’s Batman in the latest Flash movie two decades later.
In the vast and intricate world of cannabis, a fascinating parallel emerges between cannabis’ diverse phenotypes and the multiverse found within comic books. Just as comic book writers explore the infinite possibilities of alternate realities, cannabis cultivators delve into an ever-expanding array of genetic variations.
Like superheroes in different dimensions, each cannabis phenotype possesses its own unique characteristics, encompassing a mesmerizing spectrum of flavors, aromas, and effects. As we embark on this exploration, we uncover a captivating connection between the realm of cannabis and the boundless creativity of the multiverse, where the imagination and diversity intertwine in remarkable ways.
OG Kush is the perfect introduction to the concept of the cannabis multiverse. OG Kush is in a steady rotation in multiple cultivations like Blem’s Unruly OG, Connected’s St. Lucia OG, Nameless Genetics’ Mega Wellness OG, Northern Emeralds’ Formula OG and True Classic’s OG. Each of these cultivations bring out the best expressions of their individual OG phenotypes.
OG Kush, an iconic strain originating in Florida during the 1990s, has traversed the globe, captivating cannabis enthusiasts everywhere. This timeless cultivar emerged from the genetic fusion of two beloved and long-standing strains, Chemdawg and Hindu Kush. It is purported to be initially invigorating and euphoric, before settling on a calming and relaxing feeling.
With a skunk-like and pungent flavor, accompanied by an earthy undertone, OG Kush leaves a lasting impression. OG Kush’s dominant terpenes are typically caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene, all of which contribute to its distinctive aromatic profile.
Due to OG Kush’s popularity, many production labs also process OG Kush flower to make some of the most popular vapes on the shelves. Stiiizy’s OG Kush Pod is a steady go-to for those looking for a vape cart with an OG profile, along with Alpine’s OG Kush Cartridge, and Kurvana’s Earth OG ASCND Cartridge.
Multiple cultivations and production labs have added the popular Runtz cultivar, each flexing their unique phenotypes in different flavors and profiles. The Runtz strain is the result of crossing the potent and tasty Zkittlez with Gelato genetics. Its distinct aroma and flavor, reminiscent of various fruits, have become its signature and namesake. Runtz is purported to deliver a harmonious experience, striking a balance between euphoria and upliftment, gradually transitioning into a serene state of tranquility.
Drawing from its Gelato lineage, Runtz inherits a creamy and gassy flavor profile, while the Zkittlez influence contributes to its fruity and sweet undertones. Runtz showcases dominant terpenes, including caryophyllene, terpinolene, and myrcene, adding to its captivating essence.
With its complex profile, the varying phenotypes of Runtz offer different flavors and effects. Similar to the comic realm of overlapping universes, no two Runtz are alike. This is evident by the three different expressions of Runtz grown by Laughing Gas, Nameless Genetics, Traditional cultivations.
Some good offerings for Runtz in pre-roll form include The Cure Company’s Curelato Runtz Pre-Roll, Suprize Suprize x Panacea’s Runtz Hash Infused Pre-Roll Pack and True Classic’s Pink RNTZ Blunt.
Production labs have also processed this popular cultivar to make their cannabis vape oils. Flav’s Pink Runtz DVP and Stiiizy’s Pineapple Runtz Pod are all unique blends of the Runtz profile in vape form.
Lemon Cherry Gelato
Lemon Cherry Gelato entices with its captivating fusion of Sunset Sherbet and GSC strains. The fragrance intertwines zesty lemon notes with subtle undertones of berries and pine. Renowned for its soothing properties, this delectable gelato cultivar offers a serene flavor experience. Its effects are purported to be relaxing, coupled with its euphoric and calming nature.
In the cannabis universe the strain Lemon Cherry Gelato has found its way into the grow rotation at a few cultivations like CAM and Skypack. Farmer and the Felon and THC Design also have a couple offerings of Lemon Cherry Gelato in pre-roll form. Production labs like Connected and Cold Fire Extracts have also blasted a fire Live Resin vape from this popular cultivar.
The Multiverse Within Cannabis
The fascinating world of cultivation unveils a captivating phenomenon where different cultivators can yield diverse phenotypes from the same popular genetics. While the genetic makeup of a particular strain sets the foundation for its characteristics, external variables such as growing conditions, climate, nutrients, and cultivation techniques influence the expression of those genes.
If we had the perspective of the superhero Ant Man played onscreen by Paul Rudd, we could see how in the quantum realm how cultivators’ unique approaches and cultivation environments can coax out distinct phenotypes, including variations in growth patterns, flavor profiles, aromas, and even cannabinoid or terpene compositions.
This rich diversity not only reflects the adaptability of plants but also highlights the artistry and skill of cultivators who nurture and coax out the hidden potential within the genetics, offering enthusiasts an ever-evolving tapestry of flavors and experiences to explore.
