The best of Ethos Genetics
All the strains sold by Ethos Genetics are of the highest standard, but here is a closer look at some of my personal favorites that I have had the privilege of trying.
Mandarin Cookies R2
I’d read and heard about Mandarin Cookies more than a year before a couple of nugs of the strain ended up in my pipe. It’s a killer strain that will knock even the most experienced smokers on their ass, with THC levels often measuring over 30%. It’s a hybrid strain, a cross between the indica heavy Girl Scout Cookies, Forum Cut Cookies and the sativa dominant Mandarin Sunset.
What might seem like a strange combination of some, turns out to be a terpene match made in heaven. The Mandarin sunset can be thanked for the citrus dominant smells and flavors that sativas are known for, while there are certainly grape and earthy tones. It’s a great strain for helping with appetite, stress, sleeplessness, and anxiety. It’s a high yielding strain that can offer 80g – 100g per square foot.
Ethos Glue RBx3
When Ethos Kush IBL and Gorilla Glue 44 is combined you are left with Ethos Glue RBx3. The plants grow like crazy and can become very tall if not trained or topped. The intense hybrid effect hit you fast and lasts a long time. Ethos Glue RBx3 brings the funk. She has a sour cheese smell that will surely be familiar to anyone who is familiar with Cape Town cheese.
Ethos Glue RBx3 has tested THC levels of over 30% and it’s rated as a high yield plant. If grown under the right conditions, you can yield between 60g – 80g per square foot.
Yes, I’m a sucker for the citrus flavors that come with sativas, and that would explain why I like Mandarin Sunset too. This insane grower is a cross between Mandarin Sunset and Storm Trooper OG. The end result is a Diesel-esque sweet citrus plant that yields the same flavors in the smoke and taste.
Used by many as a nighttime toke to help with sleep, I found it a great companion for a hike in the African bush. Mandarin Sunset has been tested to show THC levels of 25% and even CBD of 0.5%. A well-rounded strain that is of medium difficulty to grow. Perfect for South African growers.
