OrganiGram Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:OGI) introduced two new Edison dried flower strains – MAC-1 and GMO cookies to strengthen its Edison Cannabis Co portfolio.
Each strain boasts a unique flavor, phenotypic profile, and aroma. Both strains are cultivated in one of the strain-specific micro-climates of OrganiGram. CEO of OrganiGram, Greg Engel, said every year OrganiGram cultivates more than fifty varieties of new plant genetics and catalogs them.
Greg said both citrus diesel Mac-1 and high potent GMO Cookies are examples of its high quality and diverse genetics that will be added to the product line of Edison. Its main target at OrganiGram is to add high-quality strains that provide a nice aroma, value, and flavor for adult consumers of Edison.
MAC-1, a legendry hybrid strain, features a citrus flavor and a mid-range diesel smell. The flowers are visually striking and dense and comprise light purple punch, dark and light greens, a thick layer of frosty trichomes, and fiery copper pistils. It offers a THC in the range of 20% to 26% besides terpenes (Linalool, β-Pinene, Caryophyllene, α-Pinene, and Limonene).
It is available in a pack of three 0.5 pre-rolls or 3.5-gram format and retains consistent potency and terpene aroma profile.
GMO Cookies are Indica strains that comprise high potency THC (20 to 26%). They boast dark green flecks and crown-shaped flowers, heavy trichomes, and bright orange pistils. Its strain dominant terpenes are Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Humulene.
