Bodhi Urban | High Grade Hemp Seed

Chardonnay is one of High Grade’s Top Shelf varietals and has proven to be a top industrial hemp performer since 2016.  This High Grade original varietal is a cross between Black Rose (R4 x OttoBx1) and Cherry Wine. This welcome addition to the High Grade family of hemp varietals brings together the high CBD content of the deep, dark purple “Black Rose” and the palate-pleasing vigorous terpenes of Cherry Wine for a strain that entices and treats the senses. Users downstream value it for the swirling sweet flavors as well as the calming, but not overly couch-slouch inducing Indica effects. It produces euphoric mental relaxation but leaves the body able to perform. 

Terpene Profile:  Strawberry Rhubarb jam and candied raspberries.
