A.O.T.A. Stands For ‘All Of The Above’

The dispensary states that this batch of AOTA is straight from Humboldt. In fact, AOTA seems to be a California-only strain at the moment (please correct me if I’m wrong). To be honest though, by the looks of it, we would be happy regardless of where it came from. A full eighth was delivered in one large, dense bud that was tightly packed and well-trimmed. It certainly is a relief (and extremely rare) when you can order from a new dispensary for the first time and they blow past your expectations.

A Mix of the Growers’ Favorite Strains

AOTA(or A.O.T.A.) stands for ‘All Of The Above.’ However, it also is named after the four unique strains that comprise this Sativa-dominant Hybrid: Afghani, Orange Crush, Trainwreck, and AK-47.

You see, there is barely any documented history on AOTA, leading us to believe the grower was not apart of any company or large-scale grow op looking to brand itself. The rumor is that the A.O.T.A. strain was formed when a Humboldt grower mixed 7 of his favorite strains together. Over time, he eventually bread AOTA to consist predominantly of the 4 strains listed above.

A.O.T.A. is a Sativa-Dominant Hybrid

The smoke from AOTA is spicy, presumably from the Trainwreck in its genetics. At the same time though, you are hit with citrus undertones; each bud tasting like sour grapefruit topped with pepper. With genetics leaning more towards the Sativa side, patients can expect AOTA to leave them feeling significantly “high”, with a soaring-head rush. Similarly, patients tend to feel a significant body buzz that gets stronger and stronger as the medicine begins to creep. This makes AOTA especially appetizing for patients looking for full-body pain relief that is full of energy and good vibes.

Abstract

The etiological roles of diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (DEC), including enteroaggregative E. coli (EAggEC), diffusely adherent E. coli (DAEC) and EAST1EC–a strain of E. coli that possesses no diarrheagenic characteristics other than the EAggEC heat-stable toxin 1 (EAST1) gene–remain controversial. To clarify the prevalence of DEC among healthy individuals in Osaka City, Japan, and to compare the virulence properties of strains previously isolated from diarrheal patients, fecal specimens were examined for DEC. Isolation rates of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli, enterotoxigenic E. coli, and EAggEC were significantly lower among healthy adults than sporadic adult patients. There were no differences in enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC), DAEC and EAST1EC between patients and healthy carriers. Subtyping of the intimin gene (eae) of EPEC, and measuring the IL-8 inductivity of DAEC on epithelial cells could provide criteria to distinguish strains in diarrheal patients from those in healthy carriers. Proper criteria should be established in order to diagnose subtypes of DEC as causative agents.
