It is now high summer and the time of Lammas. This marks the time of the first harvest and signals the coming of autumn. Active growth is slowing down and reflection is beckoning. It is a time to put in some work, change and shift as the power of the Sun begins to wane. 

You might be looking towards autumn projects, making a change in wardrobe, stocking your magickal cabinets with herbs before the onset of fall, or starting a new class. Sliding into your fall work mode is a little hard when the hot weather is still around but this is the perfect time to set and work towards your goals.

With a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD, Argyle is the perfect strain for your Lammas celebrations and future goal planning. It is an indica-heavy hybrid strain made from a cross of Afghani and Sensi Star genetics, giving you a mellow buzz and a comfortable high due to its low to medium THC potency. The closing end to summer can be tough, so adding a little Argyle to your cannabis experience could be exactly what the weed witch ordered. Its happiness inducing high can reinvigorate low spirits and even help you positively alter your perspectives as you reflect on your summer achievements and explore new upcoming possibilities.

Physically, if you’re like me, you did a lot of running around this summer and may need some time to heal those sore “I had too much fun this summer” body pains and muscle spasms. Argyle is a great, natural answer to these issues. As someone who also suffers from headaches from the seasonal barometric pressure changes, I recommend Argyle as it can also assist with migraines and cramps.

Lammas’s magick centres around the early harvest aspect. It is the season when the first grains are amassed, fruits are ripe for the picking and feasting with family and friends is a must. Argyle encourages the appetite so have a toke with those you love, then break bread and scarf down a festive meal together! Take this opportunity to celebrate everyone's unique skills and abilities as well as honour your ancestors and the hard work they had to do in order to survive. Give thanks for the abundance that you have in your life and be joyful for the food on your table. Reflect on all that you achieved this summer, release any negativity that you may have and announce your future goal to the group (if you are comfortable doing so).

Major Terpenes:

  • MYRCENE: The most abundant terpene in cannabis, which is where it’s mostly found in nature. Anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relief), Antibiotic, Sedative, Antimutagenic. Also found in Mango, Thyme, Citrus, Lemongrass, Hops.
  • LINALOOL: A characteristic lavender scent with a hint of spiciness. Linalool is used in traditional medicine practices for its sedative and anti-epileptic properties. Also found in lavender, mint and cinnamon 
  • CARYOPHYLLENE: The terpene caryophyllene is present in many herbs and spices, including black pepper, basil, and oregano. The amazing molecular structure of caryophyllene allows it to easily bind to CB2 receptors primarily located within our peripheral endocannabinoid system. This means that it will not cause any of the euphoric feelings of cannabis,but will provide many benefits associated with activating the CB2 receptors, like reducing inflammation and body pains.
  • LIMONENE: Also found in the peels of citrus fruit, this very aromatic terpene is abundantly produced in the trichomes of many cannabis strains. Also found in lemons, limes, oranges and other citrus fruits.

Scent: Earthy, citrus, and sweet with a smell of garlic and herbs. Like fresh cut chives, but with a fruity aftertaste.
