Marijuana Strain Name: Bettie Page
Review by: Mat Lee
Content: THC 12.92% | CBD .04% | CBG .37%From what I’ve read some Bettie Page phenotypes have a lot more CBD in it coming from the Ruderalis side, but this one did not.
Genetics: Some Cannabis Ruderalis X Some Cannabis Indica
Appearance and Feel: Bettie sure does look like she has a lot more THC in her than just a hair under 13%. This is definitely some of the nicest looking bud I’ve seen lately. It’s a bit more on the fluffy side, with the trichome coverage looking quite impressive. Just let the pictures speak for themselves. This Bettie is some fire for sure.
Smell: Right out of the jar there’s a musky sweet smell. When you crack the Bettie open, you get blasted with a stream of berry and pine scented sweetness. I had a chance to get the Bettie Page analyzed by our friends at the Werc Shop. Click here to see the actual PDF.
As you can see from the terpene profile, there’s a nice amount of β-Myrcene at 6.54 mg / g followed by α-Pinene at 4.92 mg / g. There’s also β-Caryophyllene, D-Limonene, and β-Pinene rounding out the rest of the terpenes over 1 mg / g. There’s a total of 17.77 mg / g of terpenes in this variant of Bettie Page.
Flavor: There’s a subtle sweet and berry flavor on the inhale with a spicy background and notes of pine on the exhale. The smoke from freshly loaded bong rips has a full body with a titillating creamy smoke. Joints are quite tasty, as are bonghits. I can only imagine how nice Bettie Page is out of a vaporizer.
High: For having only a few points above ten percent in the THC realm, this Bettie Page bud sure does pack a punch. I smoked a whole joint to my head, and I have to say, it hit me a lot harder than I was expecting. Then again, we should all know by now that you can’t base the potency or headiness of weed solely on the THC content.
There’s so much more that goes into good weed getting you high than just the THC. The terpenes, and other cannabinoids have a lot to do with creating the overall experience the cannabis produces. The more we can study receptors, terpenes, and these other cannabinoids, the more we’ll be able to figure out about how it works. If you like this weed nerd stuff, make sure to check out episode 165 of the Hot Box.
Overall: The Bettie Page is as sexy as the name denotes. I mean do you have eyes? Can you even see these pictures? So frosty, covered in trichome love with a great terpene profile that gives the Bettie a taste and smell that will leave you with a cloudy head full of longing thoughts about how you want Bettie all over you.
She’s that dreamy. She’s got a kiss that will make you forget about any problems you might be having. She’s stuff stoners like for sure, and if you have a chance to sample her goods, I highly recommend it.
