Lineage and general info

Harmony Rose was first bred by Emerald Spirit Botanicals of Mendocino County, California and everything about how they present this strain speaks of wellness, love, and getting close to nature — and not so much getting extremely zonked out of your brain and getting close to some cheetos. 

Emerald Spring Botanicals describes the strain as being “from the cherished genetics at Hope Springs Farm,” and while the exact lineage is unclear, the breeders “expect this strain to be a Cannabis ruderalis varietal with an Afghan cross sometime in the past.”

The strain name comes from the plant’s strong rose aroma, which drifts off the thick buds the plant produces, and is likely the result of the healthy amount of the terpene Ocimene in the chemovar. Combine that aroma with the harmonious 1:1 THC to CBD ratio and you have “Harmony Rose.”

As a low-THC, high-CBD strain it can be effective for people looking for medicinal benefits without too strong a high, and according to Emerald Spirit Botanicals, “The smoke is smooth and clean tasting of rosewood and leaves you feeling relaxed yet uplifted to carry out your tasks in harmony.”

Cannabinoids and terpenes in Harmony Rose

Usually when buying a product, you expect its name would represent consistency. For instance if you get a bottle of Jack Daniel’s, it doesn’t matter where or when you buy it, you can expect that it would produce the same effects, and have the same taste. But unlike whiskey, the name of the type of weed you get means very little. Unlike Jack Daniel’s, no one ever defined the chemical profile of Harmony Rose marijuana strain, it has no trademark, anyone can grow weed and call it Harmony Rose.    

More often than not people tend to use the sativa/indica origins of a cannabis plant in order to determine its effects and therapeutic potential. But truth be told, this usage is outdated, as it actually describes botanical traits such as leaf structure, size etc. We now know that from a scientific perspective neither the strain name, nor its sativa/indica properties can predict its chemical structure.

In order to get a clearer view of what you can expect when looking for Harmony Rose, we gathered information from cannabis testing labs, and from websites such as Leafy and Wikileaf, and came up with the averages of the most prevalent cannabinoids and terpenes in this chemovar.

How Harmony Rose affects you

Though Harmony Rose is considered a high-CBD chemovar, it is infact a 1:1 THC-CBD variety. This means you can indeed expect a decent high, depending on the chemical profile of your product and your own biology and tolerance. Interestingly, there’s some preliminary evidence that CBD and THC can interact in a dose dependent manner. When the ratio is 8:1 (CBD-THC) CBD could alleviate some of the cognitive effects of THC, but when the ratio is 2:1 (CBD-THC), which is closer to the ratio in the above chemical profile, CBD can actually enhance the effects of THC. However, like with a lot of other unresolved questions in cannabis, the scientific jury is still out to decide on how exactly these two interact with you (and your high). 

From a therapeutic standpoint, this chemovar is very interesting. The above chemical profile could synergize (a phenomena known as “the entourage effect”) and potentially treat conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, stress, inflammation and seizures. It should be noted that most of the information we have about cannabinoids and terpenes is from preliminary research. And though they are all usually considered safe to use, you should consult with a health practitioner before you start a new treatment.

Growing

Described by Emerald Spirit Botanicals as most likely a Cannabis Ruderalis varietal hybrid, Harmony Rose shouldn’t give most growers much trouble, though it does tend to grow relatively short with a not especially large yield. Because it’s a unique and less known strain, there is less of a body of knowledge regarding cultivation.

Related Strains

Harmony Rose should be a familiar strain for consumers who like to kick back with 1:1 ratio herb. It’s similar in that regard to Harlequin or Pennywise, two 1:1 ratio strains with equal levels of THC and CBD of around 10-15%. The flowery flavor of this strain brings to mind chemovars like Lavender or Rose Bud, and like Rose Bud, this is a strain for people who aren’t looking for extremely potent weed to help them melt into the couch or astral project into the night sky. Instead, this is a strain for those who prefer a more mellow chemovar, with which you can still function after smoking.
