The 6 others I tried, also grown in the same greenhouse, weren't noteworthy other than they were the hottest thing on social media.
A lot of the newer stuff is maxxing out only a few elements of the profile. The higher the THC, the lower the terpene and other cannabinoid content goes. Same goes with maxxing out terpenes.
That being said, what was your source for these greenhouse flowers? I found the majority of the California dispensaries (10 years ago) to be producing early cut. Basically a lot of boring, short lasting highs from dispensary cannabis.
All older strains like Chem-91, Headband, Trainwreck, Sensi Star and more. I was basically sampling all the strains I'd read about for years, while living in a prohibition run "headies or couchlock" state.
So, please take into account poor growing and poor harvesting/handling practices.
