The Alki Sunset by Sky High Gardens
Alki Sunset! The hybrid that tastes and feels like summer! Citrus sweet and earthy, it the newest strain by Sky High Gardens! In partnership with Canna West, this hybrid is a thoughtfully curated blend of Sky High’s flagship strain Pineapple Chunk and the award-winning Apple Slapz.
It’s the perfect strain for a stroll on the beach, a gathering around the campfire or for any creative project or adventure. The Alki Sunset has quickly become a local favorite!
The two most dominant terpenes in the Alki Sunset definitely influence its taste, effects and wellness benefits.
The first is terpinolene, also known as alpha-terpinolene. This terpene is can be found in sage, rosemary, lilacs, cumin and nutmeg. It adds those herbaceous, woodsy and floral notes that makes this strain so tasty!
Research has shown that terpinolene as an essential oil, may have antibacterial and antifungal qualities. More recent studies suggest it may also have the potential to reduce the risk of heart disease when combined with other nutrients and may possibly inhibit the growth in cancer cells.
Even though terpinolene is most often found in sativa strains that are higher in THC content, it’s still considered lightly to moderately sedative. When combined with THC, it delivers an energetic effect that’s focused, creative and exciting, while it may also ease anxiety and reduce stress. It’s also a powerful antioxidant!
The second notable terpene in the Alki Sunset is limonene, a delicious terpene found in citrus fruits rinds and juniper. It may elevate the mood, provide stress relief and like terpinolene, carries antifungal and antibacterial properties. Some studies suggest that limonene also increases serotonin and dopamine levels in key areas of the brain that influence anxiety, depression and OCD.
There’s no doubt about it, the Alki Sunset is the perfect blend of fun, flavor and full body relief.
