Hercules 2.0 is an upgrade of our already outstanding original “Hercules” which is a cross of Hawaiian Urkle x Rugburn OG.
Here’s the back-story.
Hawaiian Urkle, which is Hawaiian x Urkle, was called “Hippie Ritalin” by our customers for its amazing ability to help ease anxiety and increase focus so one could keep a nice clear focus on cerebral tasks like studying and work. But it wasn’t the best producer in the garden and was available only intermittently, which was disappointing for all our college student customers who relied on it for their study sessions or our patients with ADD/ADHD who found it to be good medicine.
That’s why we decided to cross it with Rugburn which we’ve turned to on several occasions to stabilize wily genetics and increase their predictability. It’s allowed us to provide previously troublesome strains to our customers on a regular basis.
Crossing with Rugburn resulted in Hercules, a strain with the perfect blend of potency and effect born of the Hawaiian Urkle’s ability to ease pain but provide a clear head for daytime use. It continued to be an ideal strain for those who medicate and work or manage daily tasks, but now had an increased strength and a slightly energizing body buzz.
But while we loved Hercules, we found genetic variations that were problematic. So we utilized our inbred line and crossed with Gupta Kush which has greatly reduced the number of phenotypes present and introduced new elements that make this a much more well-rounded high. This became our very beautiful Hercules 2.0.
H 2.0 is very strong sativa-leaning cannabis that’s energetic and stimulating and has buds of a lime green, almost bluish hue. Adding Gupta to the mix increased potency and added a body buzz that makes this a heavy hitter – you’ll be able to concentrate in low doses, but at higher you won’t even want to. It’s potent, invigorating, but without raciness.
The smell and taste is unlike anything else in your garden, perhaps most similar to a Durban Poison/Kush blend. Delicious, but very different. It’s stinky – and you’ll never have to guess what strain you have in your pocket.
