Behind the Strain: I-95 from Top Dawg Seeds

"I-95 features bright green nuggets glistening with many swollen glandular trichomes filled with essential oils."

This tantalizing combination of Chem and Kush genetics blends together gassy and earthy scents and flavors for a pungent and potent pedigree – particularly popular in Colorado dispensaries.

JJNYC and Money Mike of Top Dawg Seeds crossed their female Triangle Kush x Legend OG with a particular male phenotype of Stardawg IX2 to create this masterpiece variety. The limited-edition strain release is named for the notorious interstate highway between Florida and Maine upon which plenty of contraband and money have traveled.

The I-95 strain features bright green nuggets glistening like diamonds with many swollen glandular trichomes filled with essential oils saturated in cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. A light squeeze reveals robust aromas of gasoline fuel, skunk spray and Pine-Sol wood floor cleaner.

The effects come on strong and fast, with an almost psychedelic rush followed by a long-lasting inspirational feeling perfect for artistic pursuits or a nice hike. Stress and anxiety melt away and the buzz lingers for hours.

Concentrate makers will appreciate the unique qualities of the I-95 strain. The extracts produced from this variety, both solventless and those using hydrocarbons, maintain the flavor profile and strength of the original flower. Those wishing to create new strains can choose select males that they grow out as “keepers” to use as breeding stock.
