The Article – Great Basin Brewery “Icky” IPA & “Techtonic” IPA From OMG THC
The Perfect Pairing
Perhaps there is no better product for cannatailing than a vape patterned after an IPA. This is the magical creation of OMG THC and Great Basin Brewery, Nevada’s oldest craft brewery. They teamed up to create cannabis vapes that have the aroma and flavor of hops without the bitterness.
“Hops are a cousin of cannabis,” says OMG THC’s Stephanie Magurno. Hops have antibacterial properties and share some of the same terpenes as cannabis. Additionally, hops have a particular compound in them that increases the activity of a neurotransmitter called GABA, which means that hops have a calming effect.”
As for the taste of the two Great Basin inspired strains, Tectonic is vibrant on the palate with tropical fruits and citrus flavors, while Ichthyosaur (Icky) has earth, pine, grapefruit, and citrus notes. The predominant terpenes in both are myrcene, humulene, and caryophyllene. The cartridges tend to have 85-92% THC in the oil. The vapes use cannabis distillate, which means any unique identifying characteristics or genetics of the cannabis has been removed. Through the extraction process, the plant is turned into an oil that is only composed of cannabinoids.
The Best of Both Worlds
“Consumers get the best of both worlds – the taste of beer with the effects of cannabis. Consumers have universally said the experience is relaxing without being couch-locked and describe the product as ‘very clean’,” Magurno says. Additionally, she noted that hops terpenes are extracted in the same proportions from the same varieties of hops used in Great Basin’s Icky IPA and Tectonic Event Double IPA.
Another reason to turn to cannabis over cocktails might be a question of economics. “In the case of a cannabis vape cartridge, the consumer has anywhere from 50-150 hits – and a hit has the equivalent effect of drinking a beer or glass of wine. In other words, the initial cash outlay can be greater than a six-pack or bottle of wine, it goes much further,” Magurno says.
