Sometimes, the “berry” good things in life can be found in the small details. Whether it is having a hot cup of coffee in the morning before kicking off your day, or a soothing song on your way home after a tiring day, we are sure you can find joy by focusing on the simple pleasures of life.
ERB (aka Early Resin Berry) is a quite mysterious hemp strain. It’s lineage is unknown and farmers have reported to have a difficult time getting their hands on its seeds. Thanks to the few information provided by consumers and some manufacturers, we do know that ERB has a CBD:THC content around 20:1, which makes it perfect for those who are fond of the effects provided by CBD. The buds of this strain are large and light green with some purple hues and orange pistils, all covered by a shiny coating of trichomes that enhance the amazing smoking experience of this strain.
ERB Strain Terpenes
The name itself should give you some ideas about what this strain tastes like. ERB has terpenes like myrcene, caryophyllene and limonene, which are common within berry strains. For this reason, ERB has a straight berry flavor that has sweet and citrus undertones, making it an extremely popular strain among consumers thanks to its amazing flavors and aromas.
ERB Strain Effects
Although we don’t know whether Early Resin Berry is a indica or sativa strain, we could say that it combines the best of both worlds for what some users have reported. ERB seems to be perfect for when you have a revolving stomach, since it relieves nausea and stress. After a few drags you will feel satiated and relaxed while your mind stays alert and euphoric. You can even take a drag on ERB if you want to take a good nap.
As for terpenes, these compounds add some of their “berry” good effects to ERB. To begin with, Myrcene is a molecule found in most indica strains, which contributes to their sedative effects and acts as a muscle relaxant and delivers. Caryophyllene is the only terpene to interact with the endocannabinoid system; for instance, it helps regulate mood and has analgesic effects. When it comes to limonene, it provides great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, and it has proven to be a great treatment for anxiety.
ERB Strain Genetics
As we mentioned before, there is not information about the lineage of this strain, but we do know the purpose of its creation; several high-CBD strains are created by crossing a specific strain with Early Resin Berry. There are a few phenotypes that were developed with utmost care in order to create outstanding strains, which are:
- Early flower initiation
- Strong sweet berry flavor notes
- High resin and terpene content
- Robust structure
Considering these great characteristics, ERB could be seen as one of the best male donor strains there are in the market, and buds such as Elektra, Special Sauce, Suver Haze and Sour Space Candy have ERB as their father.
Oregon CBD is the only known breeder to offer ERB seeds. However, getting your hands on them will not be easy, and even consumers have had difficulties finding this strain at dispensaries.
According to Oregon CBD, ERB has an early flowering time, starting in July, and it is ready to harvest between early and late September.
We are sure you are curious about what smoking an ERB strain feels like. However, it is extremely difficult to find it in dispensaries, and just as you, many hemp lovers have given up hopes on trying ERB out. Luckily for you, most of Botany Farms craft cannabis comes from Early Resin Berry. For instance, Special Sauce has a sweet and earthy aroma that matches its berry flavor, which is obviously inherited from ERB. Then, Suver Haze is a sativa-dominant strain with sweet fruit and citrus flavors, perfect to pair with your cup of coffee. On the other hand, Hawaiian Haze has a distinctive pineapple flavor that makes you feel happy with its sativa properties and its 19.7% CBD content.
