Like many other high CBD hemp strains, Lifter owes part of its genes to Early Resin Berry. The other half of Lifter’s genetics, however, is supplied by the super famous CBD strain Suver Haze.

Don’t be surprised if you see a bit of brown mixed in with dark green when you lift your Lifter buds towards the light. Flavour-wise, you’ll notice high traces of fruits like berries when taking a smoke of Lifter. Like the name suggests, Lifter is designed to add a boost to your daily routine, so it’s best used earlier in the day.
