Classic horror movies go great with Halloween like dairy-free whipped cream on a vegan sundae. And cannabis adds to it like drizzling GMO-free chocolate on top. If you’re looking for premium medicine this spooky season, check out our breakdowns. And you’ll grab a good deal with these two cultivars (commonly known as strains).
We’re featuring Curio’s own Blue Dream CBD and Northern Lights. And on top of our quippy paired descriptions with movies thanks to our Director of Creative Marketing Kevin, we’ll cover the dominant cannabinoids and terpenes and how they may help with your qualifying condition.
Breakdowns of our horror-inspired cannabis strains
Maryland offers lab results beyond THC and CBD, which isn’t common in legal cannabis states in 2019. With sativa and indica meaning a little less these days, understanding the medicinal effects of terpenes may give you a better idea of what to expect when you’re exploring for desired effects.
And other than exploring the top 3 dominant terpenes for each of the 2 cultivars, we’ll also cover the cannabinoids—other than just THC and CBD! We’ll cover others like CBG, CBGa, THCa, and CBDa.
Nightmare on Elm Street vs Blue Dream CBD
Your qualifying condition can feel like its very own Freddy. Yank that sucker out of the dream world and subject it to the warming, loving reality of helpful cannabinoids and terpenes found in Blue Dream CBD.
CBDa: anti-inflammatory agent, powerful anti convulsive, raw cannabidiol: converts to CBD when cannabis is exposed to heat or sunlight
Myrcene: found in hops, lemongrass, mangoes; aroma is peppery, spicy, balsam; tends to be most dominant terpene in flower; may help as sleep aid, sedative, muscle relaxant, anti-inflammatory, pain relief
Trans-nerolidol: found in lemongrass, citronella, ginger, jasmine, tea tree oil; aroma is woody or fruity (resembles apple, citrus or rose); possible health benefits include anti-cancer, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, sedative
Alpha-pinene: found in rosemary, pine trees; aroma is piney; may help as anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory; also could help with short-term memory loss caused by THC
Show your personal Freddy that you mean business and wipe him out with Curio’s Blue Dream CBD.
30 Days of Night vs Northern Lights
30 Days of Night is probably what your life felt like before cannabis. Your condition feels like a horrifying bloodsucker… until you weaponize your body with these key cannabinoids and terpenes found in Northern Lights.
CBGa: cannabigerol, the mother of THC, CBD and many other cannabinoids; lost when exposed to heat and more prevalent in hemp; possibly provides relief for inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, neuroinflammation and metabolic disorders
Myrcene is clearly dominant, but you already know about that one from above!
Limonene: found in lemon rind, orange rind and juniper; aroma is lemon, citrus or fruity; may help with stress relief, elevating your mood, relieving heartburn and gastric reflux; may improve absorption of other terpenes
Ocimene: found in mint, parsley, orchids; aroma is citrusy and woody; possible benefits include anti-inflammation, anti-oxidation, and may treat symptoms of diabetes
I bet it feels great to survive and thrive after a new dawn. Expect these to incinerate your inner vampires.
Have a Happy cannabis-filled Halloween!
We hope you were able to grab these cultivars to enjoy your Halloween night! If not, they’ll be waiting for you when you come back.
