CRO Blog: Southern Toad

THC is by far the most popular cannabinoid, known for its psychoactive effects. Time and time again, people ask for the strongest strains possible–– pot so strong it’s almost psychedelic in nature. And the Truth Shall Be Toad. This pack of pheno’s packs a punch. The newest to the Tyson family is The Southern Toad which dropped at 38% THC. But THC is only one side of the story. The Southern Toad was selected for its overall cannabinoid and terpene profile: 3% terpenes and 45% total cannabinoids. If you’re unfamiliar with terpenes, three percent may not seem like a lot, but they play a big role in the smell of the plant and have complementary medicinal effects known as the entourage effect. The Southern Toad is rich in δ-Limonene &  β-Caryophyllene terpenes. Limonene is associated with fruity, citrus aromas and is said to elevate mood and relieve stress. Caryophyllene is the only known terpene that also acts as a cannabinoid; because of this, it provides a wealth of potential medical benefits. The taste, smell, and how the plant smokes are why the Southern Toad is a beauty. Spectrum, our cultivation partner, believes they can break 40% THC and 50% total cannabinoids which means it’s on its way to becoming the strongest cannabis on earth. What’s the highest testing strain you’ve smoked?
