Strawberry Guava

from High North

The scents emanating from the perfectly cured buds were a strong indicator of the euphoria to come.

High North’s flower is regularly found atop my must-smoke list. Considering I’m a soil enthusiast, this is a high compliment to the company’s coco-grown Cannabis. And believe me, from the first whiff of their new strain Strawberry Guava, my commitment to consuming as much of their Cannabis as possible has only been amplified.

Located in the Matanuska Valley and well-known for pheno hunting select cultivars, High North produces some of the most consistent Cannabis on the Alaskan market. Jason, one of the company’s owners, expressed that the team is always aiming to provide customers with euphoric highs and cannabinoid profiles they can count on – alongside a thoughtfully curated variety of strains (currently over 108) that bring innovation and fresh genetics to store shelves. It’s a balancing act that the close-knit group of friends who started High North execute extremely well, where living the dream of cultivating legal weed in the Last Frontier continues to fuel their fire for producing fire.

With winter officially setting its hooks into Alaska, sitting down to enjoy the Strawberry Guava with a friend by a warm fire was a lovely way to spend a snowy afternoon. Bringing a classic aromatic combo of humulene and caryophyllene with light touches of limonene and bisabolol, the scents emanating from the perfectly cured buds were a strong indicator of the euphoria to come. A few hits from my Jane West bong and we were riding waves of smooth inhales and exhales that splashed warm and energetic vibes throughout the room, without a care to the blustery reality outside.   

Regardless of your holiday plans for this oh-so-snowy season, consider warming your bones with a strain from High North next time you’re at your local dispensary. From a stocking stuffer to a personal puffer, they have your weed needs covered.
