Big lemons strain

“When you go into a grocery store and there’s a big pile of apples labelled as Honeycrisp, you expect that they’re actually Honeycrisp apples.” Myles said. “You can’t just throw McIntosh apples in there and sell them for $4.99 a bag.”

“It’s crazy, it’s absolutely nuts,” he continued. “I mean, you couldn’t run an industry like this anywhere else, except for cannabis.”

We may loosely call things “indica” or “sativa,” Myles continued, and that’s a fair rule of thumb for describing their physical traits and psychoactive effects. But since nobody was keeping track of marijuana with the methods of a modern agriculturist some 5,000 years ago, we don’t know what a “pure” sativa or indica really is, DNA-wise, he said. Who’s to say what the defining characteristics of a pure sativa or indica really are?
After sampling the bud (this actually happened), the hybrid Banana Clip felt suspiciously similar to a strain I’d previously tried, which was supposedly an “almost pure” strain of another variety. I also couldn’t find any trace of a strain called Banana Clip on the web, and I suspect I was smoking AK Banana. Just what the hell was going on inside this disorienting kaleidoscope of primo greens, I wondered? Is any of this even, well, real?
What Is a weed strain?
Dispensary lady: My guy, today we’ve got some Jack Herer, which is sativa-dominant and has a cerebral and talkative high, or Banana Clip, which is close to a 50/50 hybrid and will give you the body buzz of an indica with some of the effects of a sativa. We’ve also got God’s Green Crack and Mango Dream.
Unfortunately, scientifically speaking, weed strains are mostly bullshit.

Cannabis strains labelled "sativa" and "indica" promise different physical effects but scientifically speaking, even the “best” weed strains are probably bullshit—names like "Purple Kush" don't mean anything.
