B - Myrcene 10.46 mg, Limonene 1.84 mg
Tasty Tropic Lightning hits hard despite the THC testing at only 11.84%. The fire must come from the help of 10.46 mg of Myrcene that works to make you feel relaxed and sleepy. Myrcene with its pain-relieving attributes, does the trick for me at that content level. Myrcene mixed with its cousin Limonene, which combats insomnia and anxiety, work together like magic. Tropic Lightning is a hybrid that hits hard on the indica side. Since Tropic Lightning eighths were on sale for $15, it made this batch a special treat.
Tropic Lightning nugs are grape-sized and with variations of mid to dark green.
This is a pungent strain, spicy in fact. Peppery and spicy nuts come to mind. The flavor is spicy too.
Eat something prior to consumption. It will help squash the munchies that come with Tropic Lightning. On that note, I was still contemplating snacks after smoking. For that reason, I have made a concerted effort to have healthier options on hand. I go for nuts, fruit, and if I must have something sweet, graham crackers or ginger snaps. I still crave chocolate, but I really try and not fill up on empty calories. Within 30 minutes my body started to relax, with the tightness in my back disappearing into the background. Soon after, a sleepy feeling blankets the user, so I would recommend using this strain in the evening and after a hot bath. This product should help get users to a nice relaxing state.
Tropic Lightning helps with fatigue, body pain, muscle spasms, insomnia and depression. This strain may Cause side effects such as: anxiety, dry mouth, dry eyes, and dizziness.

A new Las Vegas Strip dispensary option is just a two-minute walk from the Stratosphere and ten minutes from the Sahara. Open daily from 9AM-3AM, Blackjack Collective is here to serve the community. They carry a wide range of products. I am interested in checking out quite a few of their strains. I experienced a short five-minute wait in their comfortable waiting room after gaining entry through the vestibule where I showed identification and received a number.
Once inside the store area, I was immediately greeted by a friendly budtender who asked what I was interested in. I have been craving cherry sativas, they were out. My budtender was up on the daily deals. Apparently, I had just missed an $11/gram cherry strain special. I learned that a $15 ⅛ special was currently running on Tropic Lightning. Well, yay! I purchased an ⅛.
The layout in Blackjack is clean and crisp. With lots of lighting to spotlight flowers. They also carry a nice selection of carts and edibles. Blackjack has a professional and knowledge staff, short wait time, and good deals. I live for great deals, and this was one of those times. I hadn’t seen an eighth for $15 since April 20th.
Guests will find plenty of parking in the lot, but it’s easy to pass right by due to the mid-block strip location. Look for the Denny’s and Taco signs. Blackjack’s signage could be bigger. If you are coming through at night, they do have a huge multi-colored neon statue that blinks. That’s a better landmark.
Blackjack sends out text deals. In addition, Sundays are industry day and cannabis industry members get 10% off. Same for locals on Tuesdays. Sign up for the text deals, so that you save more often. You can always earn points towards future discounts on purchases.
