Horchata is a hybrid creation by Meraki Gardens, named after the Greek word that signifies an action performed with soul and spirit. They are female-owned, family-operated, and have been growing cannabis out of Oregon since 2013. Horchata is a baby they made from crossing Jet Fuel Gelato and Mochi Gelato, which explodes in a unique flavor of sweetness, creaminess, and spice. It’s named for a sweet drink that originated in Mexico, made from soaked cinnamon sticks blended into water and thickened with milk, rice, and almonds. The Horchata strain takes that profile and extends it with notes of berries and spice. If you’re looking for something unique, you might want to partake of Horchata. Do it with a little meraki.
Horchata grows in incredibly dense lumps of nugs, colored like mint, peppered with wispy orange hairs and opaque amber crystals, milky and almost orange. The strain smells like pine and mint as you break the nugs apart; users report a sense of the outdoors and refreshing energy. As you grind the buds, you’ll be able to smell the vanilla coming through with a hint of gas. Your fingers will be coated in a sweet wax, though not as resiny as some strains.
