Nug Report: The Cannabis Version of Sizzurp is the Perfect Strain to Start 2019

9:23 AM PST on January 7, 2019

    [dropcap size=big]S[/dropcap]izzurp is the perfect strain to help you start the new year if you’re dealing with a long-term hangover or are anxious about 2019.

    The beautiful, purple hybrid is a carefully tailored cross between a Spirit In The Sky (mother) and Cookies and Cream (father).  The name appears to come from the strain's sweet, cough-syrup-like taste, appearance, and aroma.

    At first glance, you’ll notice Sizzurp’s prominent purple and gold hues (go Lakers!) are covered in trichomes. The strain comes from a long lineage of award-winning seeds bred by Tacoma, Washington based Exotic Genetix. One of the company’s early goals was to create strains that glisten when under light.

    The company has developed several lines of branded seeds through years of selective breeding. Most of Exotic’s signature strains feature colorful names like Purple Lamborghini, Kimbo Kush, and KoKo Puffs.

    The main philosophy behind Exotic's breeding harkens back to a tried-and-true theory of agriculture – if you start with a quality product, you’ll most likely end with a quality product. One of the benefits of growing from seed as opposed to cloning means that growers start with a more sterile and stabilized base.

    “If you’re specifically going for a medicinal use and want something tailored to your needs, I definitely recommend growing from seed because at that point you’re going to be able to identify what suits you the best and pick the phenotype that you like,” explains Exotic Genetix founder Mike in a video by

    Mike thinks of breeding as an art form but Sizzurp looks and smokes more like it was manufactured in a lab. The strain gets its OG Kush genetics from its father's side, which makes it a good choice for helping users relax. I found that first toke instantly forced a smile on my face.

    At low doses Sizzurp is a somewhat mild-high but in larger doses it’s known for creating a long-lasting buzz that will eventually put you to sleep – which is typical of most OG phenotypes.

    The idea of living up to your goals for the new year can be daunting – especially if you feel like you’re coming out of a black hole from all the partying you did NYE – grab some Sizzurp to take the pressure off.
