Our House Strains:
Heirloom Nepali landrace (double hash plant hybrid)
Though the exact genetic roots of this cultivar remain somewhat mysterious, it is clear this violet-colored, heavy-hitting indica is something special. Team Mindful picked up a cutting of our Nepalese Kush almost 10 years ago, and we have been perfecting it further since – backcrossing the strain to improve her best traits. The flowers of this landrace are profoundly frosty, “trichomes growing off of trichomes,” someone once joked, an attribute that makes this strain ideal for hash-making (charas). The effects of Nepalese Kush are indica-influenced but euphoric and not overly sedative, making it a relatively functional smoke, and known for treating chronic pain and depression. The flavor profile is very interesting, with sweet undertones of tea and grape and a lightly-gassed overtone.
Heirloom Indian/Afghani Kush x California OG/Big Bud
With its genesis deeply connected to Afghani genetics on both sides of its parentage, Kashmir Kush is a distinctly exotic strain and is another heirloom that Mindful has been cultivating for a decade. The nose is a knockout with loud pine and fuel – incredibly distinct – and the flavor is equally piney and tart. Kashmir is resinous and rich, never testing out of the 27-30 percentile in THC content. Definitely indica-dominant, this is a smoke best saved for the evening at home. Excellent for insomnia, pain relief, and relaxation.
Sour Diesel x Cinderella 99
Never did a flower smell more like a Jolly Rancher. Even in her beginning vegetative stages, brushing against the leaves of our Sour Apple makes the room alight with her sweet perfume. This brilliant green flower is as aromatic to smoke – with the sweet of the fruit still coming through mixed with the tang of skunk. A strong, well-rounded and long-lasting effect, the Sour Apple tends to be lower on the THC potency side, but with myriad benefits including increase in appetite, relaxation, and a sweet, heady buzz.
OG Girl Scout Cookies
OG Kush x Girl Scout Cookies
The synthesis of two notorious California-bred strains, our OG Girl Scout Cookies brings out the best traits of both. This is a recent Mindful introduction, a genuine GSC-parented cut coming straight from the heart of Cookie (fam) country in the northern Bay area. The dense, fragrant flowers produce a heavy, complex smoke not for the faint of heart. Definitely on the more intense side, OG GSC is excellent for increasing appetite, chronic pain, and sleeplessness. Soon to join the House Strains list, look out for new genetics from Mindful containing this powerhouse of a strain.
Afghani #1 x Maui Haze
An old school favorite, we have seasonal introduced Afgoo at Mindful for the spring. A frosty, intensely fruity phenotype of this Afghani and Hawaiian cross, Afgoo is great for aches and pains, relaxation, and a particularly somatic experience.
Sour Diesel x Montana Silvertip
The perfect marriage of two sativa-dominant strains, Sour Tip is fast becoming one of the most popular flowers produced by Mindful. It is a longer finish, so remains on our “limited-release” menu. A slightly sweet, musty pine flavor profile is explained by high levels of the terpenes alpha-pinene and linalool, while retaining a hint of diesel from the Sour Diesel parentage. Our first round testing at 27% THC potency, Sour Tip is a thunderous strain, but imparts the more uplifting effects of sative-dominant genetics and good for those seeking relief from anxiety, looking for a boost of creativity, energy and focus.
Pineapple Express combines the potent and flavorful forces of parent strains Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The smell is likened to fresh apple and mango, with a taste of pineapple, pine, and cedar. This hard-hitting sativa provides a long-lasting energetic buzz perfect for productive afternoons and creative escapes.
Rattlesnake Diesel is a hybrid strain. Originating from the United States. It has delicious array of tones from fruity, spicy, earthy, sour and piney. Allowing your taste buds to inhale a full bouquet of flavor. When smoked, this strain brings about euphoria, creativity, and calmness to the mind. It can enhance appetite and offer pain relief.
