ABOUT KOOTENAYZ EXOTICZ
At Kootenayz Exoticz, our number one objective is to cultivate the highest quality of rare exotic cannabis strains for our consumers. Every strain is done in limited small batches to provide the utmost care and attention to every plant. Quality is defined in many different and subjective ways, and our team of cultivators rely on their experience and knowledge of the plants to carefully select and grow the strains that we would define as top quality craft cannabis. Aromatics, terpenes, texture, bud density, taste, growing environment, and feed. These are only some of the factors that go into our thought process as to what strains we offer.
AK-47 and a phenotype of Skunk #1 known as The Pure were crossed to form Elvis, a potent sativa-dominant hybrid with a sativa/indica ratio of 75:25. THC levels can top 22%, making this a powerful medical choice for people who need mood or stress relief. CBD levels, meanwhile, are typically much lower, so this isn’t recommended as a strain for patients who require that cannabinoid. The THC in this strain makes for a strong, psychedelic high with occasional mild hallucination an accompanying body high. Elvis is idea for treating depression, anxiety, nausea, poor appetite, and, for some people, chronic pain. The cerebral high is intensely euphoric and packs a strong dose of energy and creativity. Tracing the origins of this effective medical strain can be tricky; though some sources indicate a cross between Citral and Skunk #1, in fact it’s probably a mix of AK-47 and The Pure. Elvis still carries aspects of its Skunk heritage, with a strong, pungent skunk aroma and a sweet flavor. Elvis is most commonly found in Oregon, but it’s scarce pretty much everywhere else in North America.
