At Ontogen, we strive to provide a consistent product by using a mix of stains in each batch we produce, to obtain an end product that has relative consistency from batch to batch. Wine makers would call this a “meritage,” a mix of grape, or in this case hemp varieties. As with all natural products, there will be some variability from crop to crop.
People sometimes name a variety that consistently has a similar profile of phytocannabinoids and/or its effects on the user, known as a strain name or also called strands. These phytocannabinoids, such as terpenes, essential oils, and flavonoids in addition to the other cannabinoids present such as CBN, CBG, CBC account for the way the strain makes a person feel.
Be aware, however, that strain names have no clear definition, scientific nomenclature, structural consistency, or oversight. For these reasons, strain names are not a very accurate connotation of expected effect.
