“Cherry Lopez is a supposed indica-dominant cross with a 60 to 65-day flowering period.”
The effects from Cherry Lopez were extremely soothing after an initial warm sativa head-rush fades out. Although we wouldn’t say the Cherry Lopez was uplifting, it did make us completely care free. The head-rush from the sativa genetics really stood out when vaporizing and effects lasted for about two hours. It is safe to say this one is potent.
Jurassic Haze is another Kushman classic that was dubbed one of the “highest yielding sativas on the planet” by Danny Danko in the March 2013 issue of the High Times magazine. It was created by crossing an Adonai Kush male with Kushman’s Strawberry Cough.
Cherry Lopez is a supposed indica-dominant cross (we think it may be more sativa-dominant) with a 60 to 65-day flowering period, and was bred by backcrossing Jurassic Haze with it’s Adonai Kush father.
Not to worry, these kushy undertones were not enough to completely silence the fruity flavors of the Strawberry Cough. It still had a very fruity flavor despite the lingering aftertaste of kush and other earthy tones; we agreed that it tasted like what fruity sunflower seeds might taste like.
After Kushman had his Jurassic Haze stabilized, he backcrossed it with its original mother, Strawberry Cough, to produce what we know as Cherry Lopez. It’s father, Adonai Kush, is a cross of Silvertooth (Super Silver Haze x Sweet Tooth #3) and a rare Russian Kush, which gives the Cherry Lopez its earthy tones.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with Kyle Kushman, get familiar. He and his team at Buds & Roses Collective are quickly establishing themselves as a dominant force in the industry and have changed the definition of organic growing.
Cherry Lopez has been lab tested by an independent facility at around 21% THCa and close to 2% CBDa. Consider this strain to help relive stress, anxiety, and depression. Further, the Kush in its genetics could help provide slight pain relief as well.
After reviewing the Cherry Lopez, we think that the sativa genetics may be stronger than we were led to believe. After analyzing the genetics, it would appear that this strain is actually a sativa-dominant hybrid; but we could always be wrong in assuming that (Correct us if we’re wrong Kyle!).

This 50/50 hybrid comes from interesting genetics. It was bred by Emerald Triangle Seeds – they’re responsible for Lemon Diesel too. This time they started by crossing Cherry Thai with some Afghani (Indica). They did this to increase the density/yield of the Cherry Thai, since it is a Sativa.
The Cherry OG strain gave me a euphoric feeling and reduced my anxiety dramatically. The pain relief from the Lost Coast OG truly stood out this strain. It eventually made me tired, so I probably wouldn’t medicate with this early in the day.
The genetics boast two strains that are incredibly flavorful. Emerald Triangle Seeds says the strain will have 3 major variations; I could identify two predominant aromas in this specific cut. The cherry was the most noticeable at first, but I soon recognized a strong diesel scent. This was likely due to the Chemdawg in the genetics of Lost Coast OG.
“Due to its pain-relieving qualities and reputation for potency, Lost Coast OG is one of the most sought after medicinal strains in California.”
Once successful, they backcrossed it with the original Cherry Thai mother to bring out the heady, uplifting high. Finally, Emerald Triangle crossed it with their Lost Coast OG in order to increase potency.
This isn’t the first time I’ve come across a top-notch strain with Lost Coast OG in its genetics: Emerald Triangle Seeds used it when breeding their Lemon Diesel strain, which placed in the top ten at the 2010 Emerald Cup. It’s considered to be a 60/40 Indica-dominant strain. To get Lost Coast OG they crossed the offspring of (Pakistani Kush x Lemon Thai) with Chemdawg #4.
When I examined this strain, the thing that caught my attention at first was the smell. Its diesel scent with cherry overtones was something unlike anything I’ve come across before. The cherry taste really stood out when I rolled it in a joint.
The flowers were a dark, lush green and covered in orange hairs. They had a tight and compact bud structure that made it look like the typical OG flower. This definitely carried over in terms of its effects.
