Trulieve’s Sunshine Cannabis Gainesville Green (Yes, that Gainesville Green) is a sativa-dominant hybrid reminiscent of the “piney legend” with a pure retro pine flavor.
This strain was sought after enough that Trulieve sold out of Gainesville Green during opening week.
Sunshine Cannabis has committed to donating 10% of all proceeds of Sunshine Kush (Sek) and Gainesville Green (Ggr) to Regulate Florida, Florida’s campaign to allow legalized adult-use of cannabis.
Ggr is typically recommended for daytime use as it creates a euphoric feeling.
As a medical marijuana patient living with chronic nerve pain and disc deterioration, pain management is an on-going challenge. A side effect of chronic pain is fatigue, headaches or migraines, depression and more.
After ceasing prescribed pharmaceutical use, I introduced Ggr into my wellness routine in addition to incorporating a CBD product and other Trulieve THC products (indica for nighttime use; sativa to add variety).
While pharmaceuticals help patients to endure pain, those medications do not work holistically to treat conditions and, in fact, can exacerbate mood disorders and create emotional imbalance. The physical side effects from pharmaceuticals can include nausea, headache, heartburn, diarrhea and constipation. My prescribed medications carry a warning which states: accidental ingestion can be fatal.
The effects of this hybrid strain are uplifting, leading patients to feel more relaxed and less consumed with the pain, anxiety, depression and inflammation that are often associated with chronic pain and illness.
Ggr enabled me to meet deadlines and be productive during the earlier parts of the day when I needed more energy. The energizing effect brought me comfort and encouraged a cerebral outcome which piqued my creativity.
Flavors: Sweet overtones, dank top-shelf body taste
