After a long and stressful day, nothing quite hits the spot like a nice after dinner dessert. Cannoli by Alphakronik is the cannabis analogue to a delicatessen delight. With a rich and creamy terpene profile that combines earthy skunks with slightly sweet and funky cheese notes, Cannoli delivers a smooth smoke and mellow, relaxing indica-dominant effects.
Seeds of Cannoli are still available via online distributors, in select California dispensaries, and straight from the breeder. A cross of Alphakronik and Exodus Cheese, this strain’s pedigree includes Chem D, Skunk #1 and Cindy 99. This combo results in a plant that grows with more indica dominance. Cannoli grows to a medium height and works great in an indoor grow setting, finishing the flowering period in about 8-9 weeks. Cannoli is known for producing large, tight and densely packed colas. Close to harvest time, buds tend to fade into purple and red hues.
Cannoli buds have the classic plump, christmas tree cone structure when properly cured. The purple coloration tends to cover the outside of the buds, leaving the inside a lighter green with streaks of red. The sweet smell from the cheese genetics instantly tickles the nose followed by a pleasant musky skunk accent.
With such strong and potent parents, Cannoli helps to unwind after a hard day's work. Best enjoyed in the evening, this strain makes sitting back and relaxing an easy thing to do. The potency usually lies in the mid 20% THC range, and possibly higher depending on the grower. The terpene profile creates a rich and creamy flavor experience, mixing a sweet cheese and herbal skunky spice, something like an Italian made Gjetost.
Cooked up by the culinary strain wizards at Alphakronik, that brought us such strains like Raspberry Crisp and Peanut Butter Parfait, Cannoli takes its place as another must try cannabis confectionery strain. Widely available as flower and concentrates in dispensaries all over California, expect to see Cannoli making an appearance in other cannabis legal states as well. If you are looking for a perfect and unexpectedly unique treat, grab some of that Cannoli.
