NAME OUR strain


Not all strains are created equal! The effects of soil, nutrients, climate, and about a billion other cultivation choices can—in terms of taste and high—seemingly turn that "Fatso" you just smoked into something that seems more like an "Ice Cream Cake" to your mouth and your head, depending completely on where it was grown in the world, by whom, and how!

Elyon New Jersey is in the process of "Pheno Hunting"—growing new strains directly from seeds, rather than from clones, and we're excited and fascinated to see just how those strains you THINK you know all about will actually turn out when exposed to the South Jersey climate and our specific growing practices.


With that is mind, we'd love to know what YOU think our Pheno Hunt Series strains taste and feel words! Give the nugs in that bag a try, think about how they taste and make you feel, and jot down your thoughts in the form below...we might just LOVE your name, and then you win some cool stuff!

Subject to our contest terms-and-conditions*, our winner will receive a one-eighth-ounce (3.5 gram) pouch of cannabis per month for a single dollar*, to be picked up at a pre-arranged-upon dispensary near you, for one full calendar year! Better yet, that name you came up with will appear on the actual printed pouch the next time we choose to release that particular pheno from cloned plants in New Jersey—how's THAT for braggin' rights?

Pro Tip: The state of New Jersey does not allow names that may appear attractive to children (such as toy-like or candy-like names), nor do they allow any kind of inferences to other ingestible items or flavors (food and drink, basically), or copyright-protected names of other products of any kind. So your best bet is to Name That Strain in a way that will suggest how it makes you FEEL, or maybe even say something specific about the Garden State!

Let's hear those names!

Thank you! Your submission has been received!
