With a taste like it came right out of Willy Wonka’s candy factory, Nerds is a hybrid-strain designed by the breeders of the Oregon Microgrowers Guild. Specifically it was the brainchild of Adam Jacques, who is also the owner and head grower of the guild. He started by choosing Grape Ape from Barney’s Farm and crossed it with a Strawberry Cough from the BC Bud Depot. The resulting plant from that was then back-crossed with another plant of the same phenotype. Finally, that plant was self pollinated to make Nerds an S1 hybrid. About half Indica and half Sativa, the strain’s effects are relaxing and almost meditative.
Tasting of hash and grapes, with a bit of strawberry, Nerds may be a good choice for patients with anxiety, stress and mood disorders. It’s light bodily effects may ease some aches and pains as well as nausea. The strain may also help fight the symptoms of PTSD.
This strain grows short and can do well inside, outside or even a greenhouse. Nerds should be given at least four weeks, if not five, to finish vegetating. The strain flowers for eight to nine weeks and will produce a gram per watt indoors. Outside growers may have harvests up to a pound per plant.
Nerds, also known as “Nerdz,” is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through crossing the delicious Grape Ape X Strawberry Cough strains. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect fruity flavor, look no further – Nerds totally has everything that you need and more. This baby packs a mouthwatering sweet grape taste with hints of rich strawberries and tree fruits upon exhale. The aroma is very much the same with a slightly spicier turn, amped up with rich earth and fresh herbs. The Nerds high comes roaring in almost as soon as you exhale, hitting the mind and staying there for hours on end. You’ll feel totally euphoric with an overarching sense of introspection that has you laser focused on things around you but not really able to carry on conversations with anyone around you or do anything physical in nature. With these effects and its moderately high 14-17% average THC level, Nerds is often chosen to treat those suffering from conditions such as chronic stress or anxiety, PTSD, nausea or appetite loss and depression or mood swings. This bud has oversized heavy bright neon green nugs with vivid purple undertones, rich amber hairs and a coating of purple-tinted crystal trichomes.
This strain is currently OUT OF STOCK at the moment, but you may want to try the following strains similar to it: Zkittlez and Lemon Skunk.

Cultivators, Meet NERDS Genetics
In 2010, two cannabis nerds, Professor Harvey and Cowboy Bob, came together to establish their Colorado-based cannabis seed company, NERDS Genetics. NERDS Genetics has one mission – to develop and stabilize the most potent and flavorful hash-making cannabis strains on the planet. NERDS stands for “Never Ending Research & Development of our Strains” because it represents how they have always approached learning about the cannabis plant; constantly researching, hypothesizing and testing different techniques for breeding and plant care. Cowboy Bob shared with us that, “The tools we have developed along this journey are helping us to better understand the mysteries of this miraculous plant, but we know (and are excited by the fact) that there are lifetimes of further exploration into the parallel evolution of humans and cannabis. I like to think of NERDS as an acronym for our commitment to this exploration.”
Dark Heart & NERDS Partnership
Eight years later, Dark Heart Nursery is excited to be partnered with these nerds to bring you two of their favorite strains thus far, WhoOody (pronounced “whoa-dy”) and Mirage. “Dark Heart Nursery is focused on partnering with breeders who bring something unique to the cannabis industry, but also who produce what our customers are asking for, and that is strains that grow well, with big yields, made from premium, stable genetics. Nerds Genetics’s core focus is producing strains well suited for extractions and with vape pens and concentrates representing a large portion of the cannabis market, we feel that Nerds meets all of this criteria,” said Daniel Grace, Founder of Dark Heart Nursery.
As Daniel Grace touched on, what Dark Heart finds most attractive about NERDS is their focus on breeding strains that produce a heavy yield and a ton of terpenes. Cowboy Bob shared with us that he compares all of his prospects against Blue Dream. If the new strain doesn’t yield like Blue Dream and isn’t as easy to grow as Blue Dream, she doesn’t make the cut. NERDS works closely with extractors in the Colorado cannabis market to ensure that their genetics are fully loaded with unique terpene profiles that will make exceptional concentrates. But cultivators of all kinds should be excited about these two strains as well since they are easy to grow, high yielding, and will cultivate well in all environments. Consumers are going to love the unique and delicious flowers and concentrates produced from these genetics!
Tastes like it came from a candy factory, strawberry on one side of the box, and Grape on the other. A great all around hybrid with a medium head and body high.
