“Purple Garlic Mushroom Onion” (PGMO) is the name that The Cure Company has given to our breed of GMO. The name is attributed to the deep purple center flowers of the bud, wrapped in olive-colored leaves, covered in a bed of fiery orange hairs and glowing white crystal resin.
GMO is a unique strain with a refreshingly different terpene profile. Its primary terpene is caryophyllene, giving it spicy, peppery tastes, and pungent, diesel aromas. Secondary terpenes include limonene (lemon/citrus) and myrcene (herbal).
The strain looks deceiving, as well. GMO takes the shape and appearance of a sativa, with thin, long, and pepper-shaped buds, rather than a rounder, shorter indica heavy hybrid shape.
GMO has a remarkably clean and potentially relaxing body high and may have a stimulating, very mindful, meditative effect. Of the reviewers on Leafly, 76% reported feeling relaxed after consuming the strain. 53% of those same people reported feeling happy, and another 53% reported feeling euphoric.
Users report a variety of examples in which the GMO strain is potentially useful in treating ailments. Of the reviewers on Leafly, 22% said the strain helped with their anxiety, 19% with their stress, and 17% reported it was helpful for treating their pain.
A few big inhales of PGMO right from the jar bring in the aroma of earthy, fruity, pungent, and diesel-like. Grinding the buds of this beautiful strain releases another aroma profile, and the garlic in the name becomes recognizable. When ground, PGMO gives off a whiff similar to garlic mixed with the earthiness of mushrooms and fruit. A strange, but rewarding, mix of what are essentially pizza toppings.
PGMO’s Girl Scout Cookies parentage gives the initial inhale of our weed a peppery, diesel-like, and earthy flavor. The garlic moniker becomes more evident in the exhale along with a hint of citrus and pepper.
As an indica-dominant hybrid, our PGMO can potentially produce a mild to medium head high, with possibly relaxing properties. Consumers may use this strain to potentially curb anxiety, and provide pain relief.
A strain reviewer for Respect My Region wrote of our PGMO, “I don’t exactly see myself reaching for this before an early morning fitness routine. I wouldn’t mind having a bowl or two after a workout though. This strain definitely brought on the munchies and some seriously sedative relaxation.”
The Cure Company is known for high-profile hip-hop artist strain collaborations. Perhaps the most popular is the Marathon OG strain with Nipsey Hussle. Our award-winning cultivator made it to LA Weekly’s “Best of LA Cannabis 2020” list, where it was noted, “[Marathon OG] wasn’t just another celebrity jar, it was truly some reputable Kush in the most discerning Kush market on the planet attached to a man who loved his community.”
Our Curelato strain took the third-place People’s Choice Award for indica flower at the 2020 High Times SoCal Cannabis Cup.
