The Garden Glance: Compound Genetics

Legendary Orange Apricot F2 is another absolute stunner. The intense citrus loaded terpene profile doesn’t just come across in the flower as some absolutely breathtaking concentrates are now on the market. LOA’s genetics featured in the L.A. Weekly’s Coachella Desert Smoke-Off 2019 in Glazed Apricot Gelato.

The pairing of Mochi Gelato and Jet Fuel Gelato jumps out of the jar with creamy hints of spice and pine when you smell it and smokes equally enjoyable. Expect to see a wave of people attempting to get this one into the lineup. (Photo by Chewberto420))(Erik Christiansen)Among Compound Genetics' hits is the Menthol. It brings together the always popular Gelato #45 with a White Diesel x (High Octane x Jet Fuel) blend. You can expect this one to live up to its name as the best versions have a terpene profile with hints of mint and menthol.

Bringing together a gassy OG phenotype with the second generation of cookies hype was a no brainer, and the results are just as enjoyable as you’d expect.

Finding a vibrant male like the Jet Fuel Gelato featured here can be a gamechanger. This proven dad proved to be a key ingredient in some Compounds Genetics current lineup.

Best case scenario, that winner is a representation of all the best things about the strains flavor profile with a potent kick. If they are really lucky it will yield well, but that’s certainly not always the case with elite cannabis.
