Have you noticed a Grower’s Select label on your latest prime purchase? This label indicates our premium product offerings that have been handcrafted and curated for Pennsylvania patients with care, through years of cultivation experience and selective breeding. 

This week we’re launching a new duo of custom illustrations for the two patient-preferred phenos of a Grower’s Select strain that launched our in-house breeding program in August of 2020: Cthulhu #43 and #56. These Grower’s Select cultivars, our Sour Garlic and Sour Grape phenos, are hybrids crossed from our iconic prime strains, Sour Blueberry x Marie Laveau. Working with a local artist, we have created exclusive artwork that imaginatively plays off this strain’s mythical name and speaks to flavor notes unique to each pheno. Read on for an in-depth look at the hand-selected genetics and unmatched flavors in our Grower’s Select phenos Cthulhu #43 and #56

Cthulhu #43 (Sour Garlic)

Lineage: Sour Blueberry x Marie Laveau

Terpene Content: B-Myrcene, B-Caryophyllene, Linalool

Description: The #43 cultivar is our ‘Sour Garlic’ pheno and features dense green buds with speckles of purple and a fragrance that combines the unique qualities of both parent strains.

From Our Grower: According to Brandon Miller, our Senior Director, Production and Facilities, the Cthulhu strain was bred with the intention of capturing the potential effects and medical benefits of the Marie Laveau parent . The #43 Sour Garlic pheno features the indica-leaning profile of its Marie Laveau parent, with the potential to provide a unique psychoactive effect that could be both sedative and anxiety-reducing. 

Cthulhu #56 (Sour Grape)

Lineage: Sour Blueberry x Marie Laveau 

Terpene Content: B-Myrcene, B-Caryophyllene, Humulene

Description: Our #56 ‘Sour Grape’ pheno displays very strong trichome coverage and clear, sweet hints of citrus with pale notes of fermented grapes.

From Our Grower: Miller describes the #56 Sour Grape pheno as an “homage to the sweeter and fruity expressions” of its Sour Blueberry heritage. By contrast, its #43 pheno counterpart inherited the spicier flavor notes of its Poppa OG lineage, earning it the sour garlic pheno name.
