Hot Tropic Strain Genetics
Hot Tropic seeds are the lovechild of one cult classic, in the shape of the sativa-dominant Tropicanna Cookies F1 (TCF1), a Girl Scout Cookies relative, and the much-loved Fire OG, one of OG Kush’s most popular offspring at our vast seeds bank.
Not only does this genetic profile ensure an intriguing flavour, but this cannabis strain also enjoys the traits of the indica and sativa seed genetics in its herbal blood, with large plants, a fast flowering time, and a high yield of THC heavy (a little under 20%) potent flowers.
Hot Tropic Strain Terpene Profile
We are still collating the full terpene profile of Hot Tropic, but there are some things that we know as a result of both the genetics and the notable aromas and tastes of this Oni Seeds company strain.
The tropical citrus zestiness and fruity aroma that gives Hot Tropic seeds its name surely comes from the terpene limonene, which is dominant in both TCF1 and Fire OG. This terpene ensures an almost lemon pledge like scent and a tantalising tingle on the tongue on exhale.
Another terpene present in this cannabis strain is caryophyllene, a spicy terpene that creates a slightly peppery addition to this Oni Seed Co strain, especially to the flavour, providing a little extra tasty kick on the inhale.
Hot Tropic Strain Effects
