Select options Merlot Merlot is an indica dominant hybrid strain created through a four-way cross of (Larry OG X Grape Ape) X (Blackberry Rhino X SFV OG). This bud has a flavor that’s exactly like the name – rich musky merlot! The smell is rather skunky and pungent with a rich berry to it that’s both spicy and sweet at the same time. As each oversized dense olive green purplish nug is broken apart, these scents become infused with an almost buttery effect that quickly becomes sour and woody. The Merlot high starts almost immediately with your first exhale with a happy tingly euphoria that boosts your mood and your spirits without causing an increase in energy or anxiety. This effect quickly becomes relaxing, mellowing out into a slight haze that leaves you happy and completely at ease. The tingly effect first felt in your head will slowly transform into a warming body high that’s not too heavy but still will leave you slightly sedated at times. In combination with its moderate 11% average CBD level, Merlot is often chosen to treat conditions such as chronic pain, muscle spasm, insomnia, and headaches or migraines.
