This strain has one energetic pedigree. Cove’s Rise owes its genetics to Sonoma Coma and Green Crack, two award-winning sativas known for being powerfully happy and uplifting. In 2012, Sonoma Coma picked up first prize in the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in the Sativa category. And for all the super-fans out there, Green Crack’s star-studded reputation speaks for itself. Originally called Green Cush, its popular new name is the invention of none other than Snoop Dogg, who dubbed the strain “Crack” for its intensely uplifting high and social smoke.
Upon opening the jar, Cove’s Rise greets us with frosty, vibrant orange and green flowers and a delightfully fruity aroma. When smoked, we get notes of spice, sugar, clove, and if we hold it long enough, just a bit of rosemary. Fun tip: after inhaling, press your tongue to the top of your mouth to better taste the terpenes. Do you get a little hint of citrus, too? Or is that just us?
Rise is a part of Cove’s specialty Reserve line. Their bud is small-batch grown, hand-trimmed, and pampered in strain-specific grow rooms designed to cater to each plant’s unique needs. Cove carefully selects the bud you get: with Reserve, you’re only smoking the cream of the crop.
