Cereal Milk strain genetics and appearance

Originally bred by Powerzzzup of the Cookie Family, Cereal Milk is a cross of Y Life, which is Girl Scout Cookies crossed with Cherry Pie, and Snowman, a sativa-dominant phenotype of Cookies. Cereal Milk comes from the same family as strains like Gary Payton and Y Snowman. Like the rest of its relatives, this cultivar is high in THC .   
Cereal Milk’s buds are a blend of green shades with purple accents, orange hairs, and when grown properly, a thick creamy coat of frosty trichomes. One interesting perk is that while the buds are densely packed, they’re amazingly easy to break down.

How does Cereal Milk smell and taste?

Cereal Milk weaves together a silky medley of sweet vanilla and a spark of spice, but it’s the sugary note that ultimately gives the strain its name. Yet, Cereal Milk also has a fruity citrus touch to it. When you smoke its flower or dab its extracts, you’ll find a surprising mix of sweet and sour along with a minty trace of herbs and piney undertones. 

This delicious medley of flavors is owed to the strain’s terpene profile, with caryophyllene lending a spicy kick that evocative of cloves and cinnamon. This terpene is known to contribute to the strain's calming effects.  

But then there’s limonene, the citrus terpene found in fruits like lemons, limes and grapefruits. It’s said to give rise to the Cereal Milk’s euphoric vibe as it does in popular strains like Wedding Cake and Zkittlez.  

Linalool, with its relaxing attributes, is a staple in strains like Do-Si-Dos and Lavender. This terpene is partly responsible for the fragrance in flowers like lavender and rose.

Finally, one of the most common cannabis terpenes, myrcene is the driving force behind the infamous "couch-lock" effect. This sedative terpene can be found in hops, lemongrass, bay leaves, and strains like Blue Dream and Mango Kush.
