The Wife, also known as The Trophy Wife, is the offspring of Wife S1 and Cherry Wine. It’s a beauty inside and out and eases you into a calm, focused state. The aroma and flavor of The Wife is eclectic, offering a sweet mix of berry and cherry that tapers off with a hint of skunk at the tail end of your drag. Additional subtle flavors include cheese and earthiness, which balance out the fruity overtones.
Buds are dense and small yet vibrant with near-gold pistils and trichomes that match the bright green of overall nugs. The resin is thick and syrupy.
In addition to its good looks and wondrous terpene profile, The Wife has a 20:1 CBD to THC ratio. This hemp strain can hit up to 15-19% CBD.
Wife S1 is a premium hemp strain originally hailing from The Wife itself. It’s the reversed phenotype coming in at 20% CBD at its highest testing. The reverse-engineering means more CBD in The Wife, and it passes on its skunky, cheesy terpene profile. Cherry undertones are also a staple for this strain, and is stronger in its progeny.
Taking the best out of the original The Wife and passing it on once crossbred, it also offers a quick 8-week flowering time to its offspring. Wife S1 is a supreme giver: expect it to manifest high yields.
Cherry Wine is the offspring of The Wife and Charlotte’s Cherries, thus its intense cherry aroma, sprinkled with undertones of pine, skunk and black pepper. Clearly, this parent brings out the spectrum of fruitiness that delights many with The Wife. Clearly, the terpenes are especially potent.
And since it has a 50:1 CBD to THC ratio, you can expect high CBD in its offspring depending on climate and harvesting. Cherry Wine overall has a balanced cannabinoid profile, which is apparent in its outstanding looks that The Wife inherited. Specifically, it’s coated in tiny, sticky, diamond-like trichomes amidst its green, gold, and peach foliage.
Buds grow dense and vary from small to medium. When grown from female hemp seeds, plants should produce little to no seeds.
