Micro Strains: Jasmine & Mr. Nice

December 01, 2015 | BobMontoya

Every issue, we explore how growers are crafting strains with the goal of helping specific needs, not necessarily obtaining the highest yields.




December is here. The cold is a cue to stock up on what is commonly called “sunshine in a bag.” This month’s strains come from Sonshine Organics in Lacey, Wash. Owners Sarena and Kris have a dedicated crew who maintain a standard consistency in the medical Cannabis market. Always considered top shelf, Kris’ expertise yields some of the best bud in the state. I chose the mainstays that are rock solid for keeping you up and smiling or relaxed and sleeping. It pains me to think we will have to go without safe access to these great meds as soon as this summer. 

Growing your own at home sounds sexy, but the truth is, it is difficult. Crop failure can be costly and heartbreaking and in the end can be more costly than just buying your meds. Education is the key and Sonshine shares their knowledge and genetics. The most wholesome collective in our area has what you need for mind, body and spirit. 


JASMINE is a hybrid of Super Silver Haze and Trainwreck, a 60/40 sativa-dominant strain. She is a good euphoric motivator with strong appetite suppression properties. Jasmine is sweet-smelling to the nose and, when vaporized, the palette as well. The effects come on slow, but last long. It is uplifting and has just enough indica to send you to the kitchen for goodies.


MR. NICE is a combination of Blueberry Kush and G13. Kris is an expert with this strain. It is sweet like candy to the nose; a dry pull on the doobie releases yet more grapey goodness. Smoking or vaping brings on a feeling of wellness and relaxation. Best for aches and pains, it can be used to aid in sleeping soundly.
