With all of the fire flower coming out of Sacramento, the whole city seems to have its head in the clouds.
That goes doubly for Nimbus Cannabis. The up-and-coming indoor cultivator is the brainchild of Josh King, Ari Castro and Joe Cavalerro, a trio of technology-minded growers with more than 20 years of combined cultivation experience who conceived of the project in 2019.
Focusing on sustainability, consistency and quality, Nimbus cultivates under LED lights with 100% tissue-culture plant stock. The grow also works with Sacramento Municipal Utility District as a Greenergy partner, so all of their power comes from wind, solar and hydro sources.
We had the chance to sample an array of new flavors from the grow – but it was the Root Beer Float that stole the show and fit perfectly for our annual Edibles Issue.
A cross between Grapefruit Soda (Romulan cross) and Sherbert, the RBF displays green, frosty nugs with vibrant amber hairs. Cracking open a jar releases pungent aromas of zesty citrus, clove and pine, mingling with slight notes of Sarsaparilla.
The limonene and b-caryophyllene terps shine through on the pleasant, easy smoke – leading to a balanced, fairly intense effect that starts off with a mood-boosting wave and then settles into a body-relaxing, myrcene mellow.
We’re excited to see what Nimbus puts out in the future as the crew continues to bring in new genetics. If it’s anything like the Root Beer Float and the other flower we’ve seen so far, we’ll gladly get lost in the euphoric clouds again.
