Capital Cannabis is a vertically integrated grow and extraction lab in Springfield, Ore. The family-operated facility is behind this particular rendition of Bloom Seed Co.’s Strawberry Pie and Strawberry Guava cross, and this fabulously fruity extract feature. Join us as we dive into December’s saucy selection…
Some cultivars offer elusive names, unattached to their consumption characteristics. Others proudly wear their terpenes in the title. Guava Pie leans to the latter, with a fruity profile present from the moment you lift the lid. Peeking in, you’ll notice a bright honey yellow appearance and applesauce-like consistency. The texture makes scooping simple while maintaining a balanced terpene-to-THC ratio (without much stirring).
This extract produces a pure, fruit candy nose with an unmistakable strawberry-guava kick. Upon the second sniff, those with only the most refined of palates will perceive the nostalgic notes of Trolli gummies. The tantalizing tingle of tangy goodness sparks swift salivation. But don’t be deceived: This is a sweet profile – one for those that enjoy a dessert-like dab with just a little extra zing.
In taste, any tartness gets tamed by a full-bodied fruit flavor. It presents more strawberry than guava and is accompanied by a delicate, doughy essence that lingers lightly on the back of the tongue. The exhale is easy and flavor-focused.
Guava Pie’s effects lean on the relaxed side. But you may find some extra energy for snacking and certainly shouldn’t count out all activity, as a serotonin boost moves the experience away from sufficient sleepiness.
We enjoy this strain for cozy evenings on the couch, relief from daytime tensions, and whenever the craving for something fruity finds us.
