Cherry Kola (AA)
Cherry Kola comes straight out of Sonoma County, Cal., giving that region something to be proud of that isn’t fine wine. With a sativa/indica ratio of roughly 30:70, this indica-dominant hybrid has a distinct cherry flavor and aroma, with sweet notes of berry and a chemical taste. The buds are a light green color with occasional splotches of purple and a thick frosting of resinous trichomes. THC concentration is high in the strain, coming in at more than 21% in some tests. CBD concentration, meanwhile, is very low, much less than 1%. In other words, Cherry Kola isn’t a great choice for alleviating the symptoms of epilepsy or other conditions that respond to CBD. But it is good for treating other medical conditions, including anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, and stress. The high is body-centered, promoting deep relaxation and peaceful sleep. It’s best used at night, given its powerful sedative qualities and couch-lock effects. There are few reports of negative effects, but bloodshot eyes and dry mouth are probably most common. Paranoia may also be possible. Look for this strain in the Pacific Northwest; you’re unlikely to find it elsewhere.
