from Ritual

A true standout in the world of Cannabis … it’s a journey, an experience, and a celebration of the craft.

When it comes to the world of craft Cannabis in Utah, Chimera by Ritual, a new brand from WholesomeCo Cannabis, is a strain that demands your endocannabinoid system’s attention. Crafted through a genetic cross between White Truffle and The Creature, this hybrid is known for its unique flavor and effects, with high THC levels and a complex terpene profile.

Gazing at Chimera through the clear packaging is a feast for the eyes. The buds are absolutely stunning, with a frosty exterior that gleams under the light. The flowers boast a beautiful purple hue and their dark-red hairs create an alluring contrast. This is not your run-of-the-mill Cannabis; it’s a visual spectacle that leaves a lasting impression.

Ritual’s packaging, with its olive green backdrop and turquoise lettering, is a reflection of the product inside – bold, unique and eye-catching. It’s a perfect complement to the extraordinary flower it contains.

A powerhouse cultivar designed for experienced consumers, Chimera is akin to the Black Diamond of Cannabis strains – perfect for those Utah powder hounds who seek an intense and memorable “safety meeting” on the chairlift. If you’re new to Cannabis or have a low tolerance, you might want to consider something more in the Blue Square/Green Circle arena. 

WholesomeCo Cannabis, the parent company behind Ritual, offers a wide range of Cannabis flower brands including the classic, OG, WholesomeCo and the lighter Hilight brand. While Hilight is known for quality, it often features lower THC percentages and caters to a broader spectrum of consumers. WholesomeCo truly has something for everyone, from beginners to seasoned tokers.

The true magic of Chimera lies in its genetic lineage, a fusion of two remarkable strains – White Truffle and The Creature. White Truffle, known for its enchanting aromas reminiscent of its namesake, delivers a rich, earthy base that forms the backbone of Chimera’s flavor profile. This earthiness is layered with subtle pine notes, creating a deep and complex experience that engages the senses like a fine wine.

On the other side of the genetic equation, The Creature adds its unique contribution. This mysterious strain introduces citrus undertones that provide a refreshing contrast to the earthy and piney notes. The result is a delightful interplay of flavors that make Chimera a true standout in the world of Cannabis. It’s not just a product – it’s a journey, an experience, and a celebration of the craft.

Ritual plans to drop new strains throughout the winter, so if you’re already a fan or eager to become one, keep an eye on their website or sign up for early access. By enrolling, you’ll receive emails notifying you when the latest Ritual strains hit the dispensary shelves.
