There are reasons for this though, especially its genetic lineage.
It’s nice to try cannabis in each state you visit if you get to travel as much as I do for your work. My boss has me flying out to company locations all over the country and encourages me to sample the cannabis as long as I wait until I’m back at my hotel room for the evening and I don’t let it negatively affect my work. You’d think that most cannabis markets would tend to offer a lot of the same stains, but I haven’t experienced that in my experience. Depending on the companies that start out in a nascent legal marijuana market, you will either see a trend towards classic strains like Sour Diesel, Blue Dream, and Lemon Haze, or a focus on newer strains like MAC1, Runtz, and Ice Cream Cake. Thus far, one of the most enduring strains in my state’s medical marijuana program has been Space Age Cake. I see the jars of flower buds at multiple dispensaries, as well as concentrates like shatter, crumble, wax, rosin, and live resin. When I tried Space Age Cake for the first time, I couldn’t figure out why it has its legendary status. There are reasons for this though, especially its genetic lineage. Space Age Cake is made by crossing Forum Cut Cookies and Snow Lotus. Forum Cut Cookies is a coveted phenotype of the original Girl Scout Cookies strain, which itself is a cross between OG Kush and Durban Poison. I wish I could find a classic landrace cannabis strain like Durban Poison, but you’re much more likely to find something like Space Age Cake if you visit a random marijuana dispensary in my state.
