Sour Grape Marijuana Strain Information

Get ready to pucker up, because this strain truly tastes like sour grapes. A pungent cross between Sour Diesel and Granddaddy Purple, Sour Grape has a very sour, fuel-like scent with fruity aftertones. Introspective and relaxing, this strain is great for winding down with a cup of tea or a low-key evening with friends. Sour Grape walks the fine line between energizing and calming, relaxing the muscles while avoiding strong sedative effects. This strain works well for consumers suffering from stress and muscle tension. It’s different from the craft strain “Sour Grapes,” so remember to ask your budtender which one they carry.

About Sour Grape

sour grapes

Sour Grape is a relatively popular name for cannabis crosses involving Sour Diesel and grape-flavored or purple-colored parents. One of the most widely circulated varieties of Sour Grape, however, is the product of Sour Diesel and the heavily sedative Grandaddy Purple. Well-balanced between mental and physical effects, this Sour Grape is a great way to enhance a variety of activities, both social and intimate. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has measured this strain’s potency at between 14% and a staggering 24%.

Sour Grape has small to medium-sized flowers that appear spherical in shape when fully cured.  The tiny buds adhere in a dense and heavy indica structure, with the leaves tightly coiled around central stems. The leaves themselves are a dull, earthy shade of dark green; although many phenotypes boast vibrant streaks of purple. These purple hues are the result of a process akin to changes in autumn foliage, and are the result of high concentrations of pigments called anthocyanins being excited by colder than average temperatures in the growing process. Trichomes dot the outer and inner surfaces of the leaves and appear more dewy and transparent than white and opaque. Regardless of its color, however, the resin makes these flowers incredibly sticky and difficult to break up without the use of a grinder. Flowers of Sour Grape have a unique aroma that appeals to fans of both dank and more fruity strains. The predominant smell is a chemical, fuel-like funk, clearly passed on from Sour Diesel. Almost as strong in intensity, the  tangy, slightly tropical scent of fruit blooms just underneath. When combusted, Sour Grape has a surprisingly smooth smoke and tastes simultaneously grape-like and skunky on the exhale. It is important to note that this strain’s signature grape flavor is coincidental to its purple coloring — the pigments that produce Sour Grape’s shades of violet jjave no corresponding effect on the strain’s taste.

Sour Grape has a multi-dimensional that begins with a fast-acting headrush. Smokers are hit with a quick pressure around the eyes and temples, and may detect some increased salivation at the back of the palate. Depending on their set and setting, this headrush may also make users feel dizzy or off-balance. Psychedelic effects like visual distortions and a sense of time dilation may also be common. Although Sour Grape may stimulate users’ thoughts, it is unlikely to trigger the kind of intense, free-associative “mindrace” associated with purer sativas. As the high progresses, a feeling of relaxation creeps in and may inspire smokers to seek rest in the most comfortable nearby surroundings available. However relaxed they may be, though, smokers remain more mentally lucid than dreamy or hazy. Sour Grape provides the energy needed to accomplish a day’s tasks. Because it stimulates the body and mind, it can also serve as a great accompaniment for activities that involve both — including, both not limited to, exercise and sex. Because it makes room for a bit of cerebral activity, Sour Grape may not be the best strain to enjoy just before bed.

Just as it is recreationally versatile, this strain has a variety of uses for medical cannabis patients. Its late-blooming indica relaxation can provide relief from troubling aches and pains. More commonly, its uplift in mood may allow temporary relief from acute symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Sour Grape’s long-lasting, clearheaded focus can even help patients with attention deficit disorders to focus on a single task. Because its cerebral effects are limited, Sour Grape comes with a decreased potential for inciting anxiety or paranoia.

sour grapes

There is limited public information available on cultivation of Sour Grape. Seeds do not seem to be commercially available; instead, prospective growers must obtain clippings from healthy plants in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” Because it is a hybrid, Sour Grape can be well-managed and maintained in indoor grow operations, and can grow wild and free outdoors in Mediterranean-like climates with daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Those looking to bring out this strain’s trademark flashes of purple should expose plants to cold (but not freezing) nighttime temperatures late in the vegetative stage. Both the Sour Diesel and Grandaddy Purple parent strains flower within a relatively lengthy 10 to 11 weeks when grown indoors. Finally, this strain remains particularly pungent from seedling to flower, so growers trying to keep their operations discreet should invest in odor-control measures like carbon air filters.

As enjoyable in chatty social settings as it is introspective solo situations, Sour Grape is a potent and well-rounded crossbreed. Its funky-fruity taste and middle-of-the-road effects make it a great option for those seeking bold grape taste without heavy indica sedation.

Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica

THC: 10% – 18%, CBD: 2%

Sour Grape, also known as “Sour Grapes,” is an evenly balanced hybrid (50% indica/50% sativa) strain created through crossing the classic Sour Diesel X Grape Ape strains. Like its name suggests, this bud has a delicious mouth-watering flavor of sweet yet sour grapes. The aroma adds a hint of earth and spicy pungency to the zesty grape flavor, bringing in a rich sense that anchors the heavy sour overtone. Sour Grape buds actually look like grapes, with thick round dark olive green nugs with purple undertones and tiny amber colored crystal trichomes. The Sour Grape high is one that is perfect for kicking back during a lazy afternoon with friends when you don’t need to get a lot done but you still need to be social. The high starts with a euphoric lift that leaves you completely happy although utterly calm in both mind and body. This sense of calm will slowly take a tingly turn, leaving you feeling buzzy and slightly energized. These effects lend themselves to conversation with friends, bringing a talkative sense and a widened perspective. With these effects and its moderate 10-18% THC level and 2% CBD level, Sour Grape is perfect for treating chronic pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, and stress.

Stevie Wonder Marijuana Strain Information

Stevie Wonder is a sativa-dominant hybrid born from the famed foursome of Trainwreck, Sensi Star, Bubba Kush, and Blueberry. These large, frosted buds are a patchwork of sage and dark greens, scented with sweet berry and earthy notes. Stevie Wonder offers a subtle relaxation throughout the body, but even stronger are its uplifted, cerebral-focused effects. Patients have reported this strain’s success in treating migraines, nausea, and pain. Stevie Wonder is available through Bodhi seeds or as a clone in the Colorado area.

About Stevie Wonder

stevie

Stevie Wonder is a sativa-leaning hybrid with an impressive genetic lineage. The brainchild of prolific growers Bodhi Seeds, this bud has Trainwreck, Sensi Star, Bubba Kush, and Blueberry in its background. Besides a thoroughly well-balanced high, Stevie Wonder comes with a musky, complex flavor profile that is somewhat similar to that of perennial favorite Jack Herer. Stevie Wonder’s THC content has been measured at between 16% and 24%.

Despite their excellent aroma and psychoactive properties, Stevie Wonder’s flowers are visually underwhelming. The buds are on the small side and adhere in a tapered, spade-like formation. These flowers have relatively fluffy leaves that tend to twist outward from their central stems. The leaves are a dark shade of forest green and are twisted through with curly orange and brown pistils. Translucent white trichomes cover these nuggets, making them very difficult to break up without the help of a quality grinder.

Stevie Wonder tends to take action right away, hitting smokers with a head rush and a subtle buzz just as they may be marveling at its thick, tasty smoke. Besides odd physical phenomena like an increased blood pressure around the eyes and temples, users may be endowed with a newfound confidence and motivation. This boost may take the form of cerebral focus, in which certain ideas or concepts may take on a new intensity and resonance. Stevie Wonder may also provoke a chain reaction of freely-associative thoughts, making it a good catalyst for open-ended brainstorming. As time passes, Stevie Wonder’s more relaxing vibes tend to kick in. Consumers may feel their limbs and eyelids weighed down as their extremities begin to tingle. Previously active users may want to seek out comfortable surroundings where they can take a load off. While still allowing for mental engagement, Stevie Wonder may strip its smokers of some prior motivation, making it a great way to keep energy high in social situations. This bud’s backend can also be a fun way to enhance your media intake, whether you’re listening to a spacey, atmospheric playlist or watching a trippy movie. As dosage is increased, already-susceptible users may be incapacitated by couchlock and content to let the outside world recede into the background. Because of its slow taper down in energy, Stevie Wonder is recommended for late afternoon to evening use.

Stevie Wonder’s versatile effects give it a whole range of uses for medical cannabis patients. Its early sense of concentration can help those with attention deficit disorders to focus on single tasks. The strain’s generally uplift in mood can also temporarily take the edge off of mild to moderate cases of stress and depression. Physiologically speaking, Stevie Wonder may relieve temporary, injury-related pain as well as chronic aches due to serious diseases. Anti-inflammatory properties can also take care of everyday irritations like headaches. Because it comes with a heady dose of cerebral introspection, Stevie Wonder is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia or who have a low THC tolerance.

Pending stock levels, seeds of Stevie Wonder are available for sale online. Once obtained, the bud can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation requires a semi-humid climate with temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Plants are typically of a medium height and may require gardeners to occasionally trim away their broad fan leaves in order to encourage the flowering of any low-growing nodes. Stevie Wonder flowers within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors.

Although Stevie Wonder himself has professed a distaste for cannabis — the music legend claims to have hated it after trying it once at age 21 — we think this well-balanced strain is definitely worth a try. Now if only we could get a nice indica-dominant hybrid named after rock and roll queen Stevie Nicks!

Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 90% Sativa / 10% Indica

THC: 19% – 24%

Stevie Wonder is a heavily sativa dominant hybrid (90% sativa/10% indica) strain created by breeders at the infamous Bodhi Seeds farms as a potent cross between the insanely popular Sensi Star X Trainwreck X Blueberry X Bubba Kush strains. This dank bud boasts a wide average THC level ranging from 19-24%. Users describe the Stevie Wonder high as an immediate onset of a cerebral head high felt in the eyes and temples, leaving your eyes droopy, red, and very dry. This cerebral head high is very sharp yet somehow relaxing with your energy levels slowly ebbing in and out. Due to these potent effects, Stevie Wonder is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic pain due to injury or illness, stress, muscle spasms, and nerve damage. Stevie Wonder has a delicious aroma of earthy orange pine with a hint of diesel and a taste of orange pine with an earthy diesel exhale. Stevie Wonder buds have oversized dense frosty nugs athat are sage green with patches of dark olive green. These nugs are covered with a spattering of light colored rich amber hairs and a caked-on layer of crystal white trichomes and resin.

sun ra

Sun Ra Strain Information

Sun Ra is a powerful blend of Colorado Seed Inc.’s most potent sativas, Sunburn and Rebel God Smoke. This heady synthesis yields a strain that stimulates the mind and body with upbeat energy. It has a pleasant and spicy aroma, yielding notes of fuel, earth, and a latent fruitiness that fades into the background. Enjoy this sativa-dominant strain in the daytime hours to maximize its motivating qualities.

About Sun Ra

sun ra

Sun Ra is a sativa-dominant hybrid that comes to us from prolific breeders Colorado Seed Inc. It is a cross between two of the company’s own proprietary sativas: Sunburn and Rebel God Smoke. Ostensibly named for the American jazz musician (who, in turn, named himself after the Ancient Egyptian sun god) Sun Ra has well-balanced effects and a complex, fruity flavor profile. This strain’s THC content has been measured at between 17% and 23%.

Sun Ra stands out from the pack right away with medium to large-sized flowers. The buds adhere in a conical formation, tapering down from a broad base into a pointed tip. Despite mostly sativa genetics, they appear to have more of an indica-typical internal structure, composed of a dense core of tightly-curled leaves. These leaves themselves are a muted shade of olive green and are capped off by curly orange pistils and glittering, translucent trichomes.

Flowers of Sun Ra give off a fruity, citrus-tinged aroma once they’re cured. A second inspection may also pick up on some underlying earthiness and musk. Breaking apart or grinding up these thick flowers, meanwhile, gives off more of an acrid, skunky odor. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Sun Ra burns with a light, fruity smoke that’s typically easy on the lungs. On the exhale, this smoke tastes like pure tropical fruit.

Almost immediately after ingestion, Sun Ra hits users with a headrush and a buzzy feeling of stimulation. A tingly feeling around the temples and cheekbones and an increase in salivation may be some initial signs that the strain is doing its job. As smokers become more accustomed to these sensations, they may notice a change in their patterns of thinking. Thoughts or conversations may seem to take on a new complexity or interconnectedness. Similarly, users may find themselves jumping from one idea to the next in a kind of rapid free associations. Sun Ra’s cerebral mood can be a great way to facilitate work on complicated, detail-oriented tasks. It may also open up pathways of creative thinking for those engaged in more freewheeling, artistic projects. When it is shared in social situations, the strain can spark talkativeness and camaraderie, even among relative strangers. For some, Sun Ra may even bring about a surge of physical energy.

After about an hour into the high, some body-focused effects begin to seep in, taking off some of the earlier edge. A feeling of heaviness can creep into the limbs and core and can make any concerted physical activity much more difficult. Those who are consuming at home may find themselves ready to stretch out on the closest couch. Fortunately, though, Sun Ra’s physical properties do not come at the cost of its mental acuity; consumers who are so inclined may be able to achieve some measure of productivity. Because of its slow decrescendo into sleepiness, Sun Ra is recommended for late afternoon or evening use.

Sun Ra’s wide-ranging effects can have several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its initially tuned-in, cerebral mood can those with attention deficit disorders to focus on one task at a time. Its mostly upbeat vibe can also temporarily improve the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. On the physical side of things, the strain can relieve aches and pains, as well as minor inflammations like cramps and headaches. Sun Ra’s tendency to induce the munchies can even improve appetite for those dealing with digestive issues or with harsh treatments like chemotherapy. Because it can trigger some recursive, obsessive bouts of thinking, this strain is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.

sun ra

Colorado Seed Inc has not made seeds of Sun Ra available for sale online. Those looking to grow this hybrid at home should somehow obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants of the strain. These clippings can be grown as genetically identical “clones” and may thrive indoors or outdoors in a hot and humid climate. While little information is available regarding best practices for cultivating this specific strain, its indica-influenced flowers suggest that plants grow short and bushy and that they have a relatively brief flowering time of around 8 weeks.

With a head buzz that melts into a deep body stone, Sun Ra is a must-try for indica and sativa lovers alike. Its pleasant citrus aroma is icing on this very psychoactive cake.

 Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 70% Sativa / 30% Indica

THC: 17% – 18%

Sun Ra is a rare sativa dominant hybrid strain created through crossing the equally as rare Sunburn X Rebel God Smoke strains. It’s pretty hard to find outside of a few select dispensaries, but you’ll find yourself chasing Sun Ra after you experience its bright and heady high. Sun Ra starts with a euphoric lift just a few minutes after toking that infuses you with a sense of happiness and a motivation that leaves you feeling like you can conquer the world! As your mind flows through clear-headed thought, you’ll experience an increase in focus and creativity that’s perfect for tackling any mental task at hand. These effects tend to build and build with no ceiling, which can easily aggravate anxiety. In combination with its high 17-18% average THC level, Sun Ra is said to be perfect for treating chronic fatigue, depression, headaches or migraines, and eye pressure or glaucoma. It has a sweet and spicy diesel citrus flavor with tropical overtones and a delicious lemony scent to match. Sun Ra buds have long bright neon green nugs with vibrant orange hairs and a coating of shimmering golden crystal trichomes.

super glue

Superglue Marijuana Strain Information

Superglue is an indica-leaning hybrid strain that produces a functional and relaxing high to the mind and body. Smelling of pine and a sweet caramel aroma, this strain is bred by Seedism Seeds. Superglue is made by crossing Afghani and Northern Light. Those who enjoy Superglue say it relaxes you while still leaving you functional and energetic enough for social activities or even a productive afternoon.

About Super Glue

super glue

Superglue is an indica-leaning hybrid that has the powerful genetic combination of an Afghani landrace and Northern Lights. True to its name, Super Glue confers deep physical relaxation that can easily trap you on your couch under the right circumstances. It also has serious bag appeal, with a rich, musky aroma and thicky, chunky flowers. The strain’s THC content has been measured at between 18% and 28%.

Superglue impresses with large flowers that maintain a pronounced spade-like formation, tapering down from a broad base into a pointed tip. The buds have a characteristically indica structure, with their small leaves curling tightly inward in a dense, solid cluster. The leaves themselves are a pale sage green and are twisted through with orange and rust-colored pistils. Translucent, sticky white trichomes cap off these flowers, ensuring their potency and making them very difficult to break up without the help of a grinder.

A first whiff of Superglue’s flowers will pick up on a sour-sweet, skunky odor. Hanging out underneath are some sharp, piney accents. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open these dense flowers releases a sandalwood and spice scent that’s unique to parent strain Afghani. When combusted, Super Glue burns with a harsh and acrid smoke. This smoke tastes woodsy and earthy on the exhale. Those looking to keep their smoking discreet should take some olfactory precautions, as this pungent bud can reek from quite a distance away.

Surprisingly, given its mostly indica backbone, Superglue takes hold relatively quickly. Shortly after consuming its thick smoke, consumers may feel a sudden headrush, accompanied by sensations like increased salivation or a slight throbbing around the eyes and forehead. Once adjusted to these symptoms, smokers should be able to pick up on some subtle stimulation of their train of thought. This newly cerebral energy is characterized by a sudden free association between concepts or a fascination with topics that might not otherwise seem interesting. Fortunately, these thoughtful effects are not typically overwhelming and tend not to progress into a sense of “mindrace,” as can happen with more sativa-inflected strains. In fact, within less than an hour or so, Superglue’s initial mental activity begins to progress more toward physical relaxation.

While users may be able to maintain a clear head and can still carry on lucid conversations with others, they may feel stripped of any motivation or leanings toward productivity. Instead, the bud’s indica side is liable to weigh down limbs and eyelids in equal measure, conferring the kind of deep relaxation that can free up muscular tension and enable deep, restorative breathing. True to its name, Superglue (like Gorilla Glue) is even liable to pin smokers down wherever they sit — or if they’re standing, to have them diving for the closest comfortable couch.

In these later stages, Superglue is a great way to take part in an extended binge-watching session, or, if you’re feeling more social, a board game night or a meal with friends. Because of its predominantly lazy vibes, Superglue is recommended for consumption between late afternoon and early evening, when its slow decline into drowsiness can be fully appreciated.

super glue

Superglue’s thorough sedation can be beneficial to medical cannabis patients as well. It can temporarily take the edge off of the harsh symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. It may also dull physical pain, whether it’s due to chronic conditions like lupus or to everyday inflammations like cramps. At the right dosage, Superglue can even counteract insomnia, lulling users into a deep sleep. Because it is not likely to trigger obsessive bouts of manic thinking, Superglue is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.

Seeds of Superglue are not available for sale online; instead, home growers must foster “clones” taken from clippings of mature, healthy plants. Once obtained, plants can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation requires a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Superglue’s plants tend to grow short and bush with strong lateral branches. The strain flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors.

A great all-purpose indica, Superglue isn’t likely to totally knock you out unless you overindulge. It’s as fun and enjoyable alone as it is when shared with friends.

Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica / 30% Sativa

THC: 23%, CBD: 1%

Superglue OG, also known simply as Superglue, an indica-dominant hybrid, a combination of Skunk #1 X Northern Lights. It can be found in several medical marijuana dispensaries in California and Washington State, but not much of anywhere else. If it appears on the black market, consider it a rare find. The frosty white buds of this plant pack a massive THC level, more than 23% in some tests. CBD levels are also higher than average, as high as 1.4% in tests. That makes this a particularly useful medical strain, ideal for treating depression, pain, and anxiety; it may also help with seizures and muscle spasms. Those genes make for a potent, relaxing body high with some limited cerebral effects. It’s a strong choice for physical discomfort and stress. There isn’t much public information on the taste or aroma of this rare strain, but like its popular parents, it likely has an earthy flavor with hints of pine and citrus. Patients can find it in select dispensaries on the West Coast, but it’s scarce off the medical market.

Pestilence Marijuana Strain Information

Pestilence, named for one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, is a rare indica-dominant strain with strong OG undertones. Coffee and caramel fill the air when this strain is combusted, but a touch of pungent earth lingers on the exhale to round out this Abusive OG and West Coast Dawg cross. This strain delivers strong appetite stimulation and traditional semi-sedative OG effects, making it an ideal ‘end of the day’ variety that can help treat eating disorders, stress, and general restlessness.

About Pestilence

pestilence

Although it sounds fairly menacing, Pestilence is actually a deeply soothing indica-dominant hybrid. This strain was created by Illuminati Seeds (purveyors of similarly biblically-named buds like Divine Apocalypse) as a cross between West Coast Dawg and Abusive OG. It has a simultaneously sweet and earthy flavor profile and is saved for evening or weekend relaxation. Pestilence has a THC content measured at between 12% and 22%.

When trimmed, flowers of Pestilence OG are small to medium in size and have a chunky, irregular shape. These buds show their indica roots with a tight and compact internal structure, in which small and wide leaves twist inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a pale sea green and take on a frosty appearance thanks to a high volume of translucent white trichomes.

Although its name doesn’t exactly inspire olfactory confidence, Pestilence has a smooth and pleasant flavor profile. When cured, its buds have a primarily earthy scent, redolent of wet leaves and soil. There’s also a whiff of cocoa that lurking underneath. Grinding up these flowers, meanwhile, gives off some hash and spice that hints at its OG lineage. Although Pestilence gives off a sour and somewhat acrid smoke when burnt, it is easily ingested and leaves behind traces of nutty, coffee-like flavor on the exhale.

Pestilence can come on slowly, sometimes taking as long as 15 minutes before fully revealing its high. Eventually, smokers may feel a headrush that’s accompanied by some flushing in the cheeks or an increased pulse around the eyelids and temples. Once they become accustomed to this sensation, they may notice that they’re subsumed by physical relaxation. A weighty feeling in the limbs can make moving around feel like one is walking through peanut butter. Those who are already kicked back in comfortable surroundings might even find themselves pinned down by the force of the strain’s sedation.

While this strain has some action on the user’s mind, it comes more in the form of sensory distortion than of cerebral activity. Consumers may experience disorienting irregularities in perception, including a flattening of visual depth perspective or an uncanny sense of time dilation. Those who are so inclined can amplify these psychedelic properties by immersing themselves in some spacey, atmospheric music or in a visually engaging movie. Pestilence’s trippy vibes may also be a fun way to pass them time with a small group of like-minded friends. Thanks to its mostly subdued mood, Pestilence is recommended for consumption beginning in the early evening — or at least during daylight hours when the consumer has no other obligations or responsibilities.

Pestilence’s heavy sedation can have a few different applications for medical cannabis patients. The strain’s ability to put a damper on anxieties and tensions can be helpful for those suffering from stress, depression, and anxiety. Additionally, its potent physical effects can relieve aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as due to injury, or chronic and condition-related. Some anti-inflammatory properties may take the sting out of everyday afflictions like nausea or headaches. Ironically enough, given its name, some cases, Pestilence can provoke the appetite, making it a possible diet supplement for those dealing with diminished hunger due to illness or to invasive treatments like chemotherapy. Finally, in a sufficiently relaxed set and setting, Pestilence may counteract insomnia, putting its consumers into a deep and restful sleep. Because it is not often accompanied by recursive, obsessive thinking patterns, this strain is a good option for patients who are prone to paranoia or who have a low THC tolerance.

pestilence

The strain’s breeder Illuminati has not made seeds available for sale online. Those looking to grow Pestilence at home should seek out clippings from mature, healthy plants of the strain. These can be fostered as “clones” and can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation calls for a hot and semi-humid climate. Plants grow short and squat, meaning that growers should occasionally trim away any broad fan leaves in order to encourage any low-growing nodes to flourish. Per Illuminati, Pestilence flowers within about 10 weeks.

Although somewhat difficult to come by, Pestilence is a must-try for indica fans who may run across it. If you’re sharing this bud in social situations, make sure to have enough to go around; its sweet, dessert-like aroma is sure to turn some heads.

Indica Dominant Hybrid – 80% Indica / 20% Sativa

Abusive OG meets West Coast Dawg in this indica-dominant phenotype (sativa/indica ratio of 20:80). Pestilence leans toward its OG heritage, delivering a heavy, relaxing body high that’s ideal for the end of a long, busy day. The effects are physical, calming, and intensely hungry, making this a great choice for treating wasting or eating conditions. It’s also effective as medicine for muscle spasms, nausea, pain, and insomnia. There aren’t many public reports or tests exploring the THC levels in this strain, but it’s said to produce a relatively potent high. But the scarcity of CBD data means Pestilence shouldn’t be used to relieve seizures or other health conditions that require CBD treatments, unless a doctor or knowledgeable budtender recommends it. Notes of vanilla, caramel, and coffee dominate the sweet, smooth flavor and aroma of this strain. The bud has an olive green appearance with brown hairs and a layer of trichomes. Adverse effects probably include dry mouth and dry eyes, but credible reports on the subjects are scarce. Look for Pestilence in Canada and Europe, but don’t look too hard, as it’s rare even there.

Pineapple Express Strain Information

Pineapple Express combines the potent and flavorful forces of parent strains Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The smell is likened to fresh apple and mango, with a taste of pineapple, pine, and cedar. This hard-hitting hybrid provides a long-lasting energetic buzz perfect for productive afternoons and creative escapes.

About Pineapple Express

express

Though this strain has been around for a while, there’s no question why it suddenly became a household name a few years back. We’re all familiar with its soar to popularity because of James Franco and Seth Rogen film by the same name, but did you know that Pineapple Express had been a fan favorite in the Netherlands for half a decade before the movie’s release? If famous pot smokers and the Dutch think it’s a winner, then it’s a winner. A cross between Trainwreck and Hawaiian, this tropical bud is a smooth and sweet smoke that will certainly have you chasing it at least once.

Breeders at Barney’s Farm rarely turn out anything but gold, so it’s no wonder that this potent strain is another hit. The THC on this strain hits above 24% regularly and boasts aromas likened to a fruit stand. With overtones of fresh cut pineapple and mango, and undertones of green apple and pine, this tropical bud will have your senses tantalized upon opening the bag. If the scents weren’t enough, the flavors are similar and super strong. These olive colored, rock-shaped buds taste like a fresh slice of pineapple with a substantial pine aftertaste.

Though not nearly as intense as the movie would have you believe, it won’t turn you into a rambling, beat-boxing Bill Hader, this buzz is powerful in its own right and will have you floating through the air in no time. This mild body numb is accompanied by a heady, happy high that leaves users feeling creative and talkative. As your body relaxes into the high your mind will start to focus and feel productive. The energy this bud provides makes it easy to get through a short to-do list.

Pineapple Express may seem like it’s just for the recreational user, but rest assured it has medical benefits out the wazoo. This calming, yet somehow stimulating, bud has the ability to lift the mood and heighten productivity making it perfect for anyone suffering from depression, chronic stress, anxiety, fatigue, or generalized restlessness. As it has minor sedative properties, Pineapple Express is also good for mild pains and inflammations as well as migraines and muscle tightness.

This tall growing plant is a great indoor/outdoor plant, but typically does better indoors with controlled temperatures. If you are cultivating inside be sure to give Pineapple Express lots of space, as her branches tend to reach far and wide. The yields of this strain are typically high and it is considered an auto-flowering strain. Expect your perfect harvest at around 7 to 8 weeks, or if you are growing outdoors, mid-October.

If you find yourself with the motivation to get up and get moving, this is a great bud to take on an adventure. This hard-hitting hybrid is a long-lasting, energetic strain that meshes perfectly with a busy schedule or creative endeavors. If you are the type who likes to just smoke at home, this is a great dinner and movie pairing.

Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 60% Sativa / 40% Indica

THC: 25%, CBN: 1%

Pineapple Express is a Sativa dominant strain with a 60:40 sativa/indica ratio. The strain is quite popular and has achieved recognition thanks to the stoner film of the same name. However, you have to keep in mind that the strain is not as intense as the movie has made it out to be. But Pineapple Express still manages to offer a mild and nice body-numbing buzz, which is something to look forward to. The strain is offered in the form of well-weighed nuggets that look like Styrofoam popcorn. It does not taste sweet, but it does smell funky with its citrus overtones. The taste is quite extraordinary with a hint of pineapple while you inhale. Pineapple Express is chosen to treat a lot of medical problems including anxiety and stress. However, it is even more effective at curing the symptoms of chronic depression at the same time. If you are suffering from mild pains and aches, you should look no further. After a smoke, you will realize Pineapple Express is calming and stimulating at the same time. Not only will it heighten all your senses but you will feel energized all the while observing an increase in focus, awareness and creativity.

Grow information

Despite the nebulous marketing and inconsistent reported effects, most cuts of Pineapple Express are sought-after cultivars noted for their fluffy, lean flowers that shine with a lime and yellow coloring. Consumers select Pineapple Express for a tropical, citrus aroma that exudes from its typically higher limonene content. Growers will have an easy time growing Pineapple Express indoors, and can expect a high yield between 55-65 days.

Pitbull Strain Weed Information

Pitbull was bred in the early 2000s by U.S. seed company Stoney Girl Gardens as a cross between P-91 and their own award-winning Sugar Plum. This mostly indica strain has an extremely quick flowering time at 6-7 weeks. Just like the dog breed it’s named after, this plant is tenacious, making it a versatile grower indoors or out that produces high yields. Buds will be light green and fragrant, smelling of tropical fruit with earthy, skunky notes. Pitbull’s taste is also fruity and its indica buzz hits fast and hard.

About Pitbull

blue pitbull

The pitbull dog breed has gained an unfair reputations for being dangerous and overly aggressive. The strain of the same name, while very potent, is anything but vicious. It was developed by Stoney Girl Gardens, a group of Portland-based breeders who have created flavorful and locally-themed strains like Marionberry. Pitbull is a cross between P-91 and Stoney Girl’s own sativa Sugar Plum. Though the breeder claims THC levels as high as 36%, independent cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has found the bud to have between 10% and 21% THC.

Pitbull impresses with medium to large-sized nuggets that adhere in a surprisingly loose and fluffy bud structure. The flowers are roughly spade-shaped. Olive green leaves are twisted through with vibrant orange pistils. Occasionally, phenotypes of this strain will show off streaks of purple in their leaves; these hues come about when pigments called anthocyanins in the plant’s genetics are agitated by colder than average weather during the growing process. Finally, translucent white trichomes cover these buds, giving them a slightly dewy sheen.

When properly cured, Pitbull gives off a pleasantly fruity, tropical odor with distinct lemon-lime notes. On closer inspection, there’s also an underlying funk, likely passed on from pungent grandparent strain Northern Lights. Breaking open or grinding the buds yields a floral aroma with some spicy accents. When combusted, this strain burns with a harsh and acrid smoke that may trigger coughing for some. Refreshment returns on the exhale, though, with an herbal-tasting smoke, reminiscent of sage.

Pitbull’s high comes on quickly for an indica. Initial effects manifest as a tingle around the face, particularly the eyes and temples. A heavy, full-body stone arrives soon after, rendering any anxiety or discomfort null. This indica is unique in that its couchlock takes hold relatively early, pinning smokers passively in place. Users may experience weird sensory effects, including distorted depth perception and slight auditory hallucinations. Any other mental side effects have a cloudy, dopey character; this is not a strain for intense cerebral activity or problem-solving. Instead, savor this sleepy strain as you lounge around at home, zoning out to some atmospheric music or trippy movies. Alternatively, use Pitbull to enhance your appreciation of the great outdoors on a camping trip or around a fire pit. This bud’s easygoing vibes are as enjoyable solo as they are with a group of close, like-minded friends. In high enough doses, beware that this strain can lull you into a deep and restful sleep. Pitbull is best enjoyed at nighttime — or at least during a lazy, unproductive day.

Many medical cannabis patients may also find value in Pitbull’s strong, almost narcotic levels of sedation. It can be a great way to soothe pain, whether temporary as due to injury, or chronic and nerve-related as due to conditions like lupus or arthritis. The strain may also relieve more minor irritations like headaches and nausea. As noted, Pitbull can also work against insomnia, granting much-needed rest for the sleep-deprived. Psychologically speaking, this strain’s ability to elevate mood can be a good temporary antidote to mild to moderate stress, depression, and anxiety. Because it is unlikely to bring about intense, paranoid patterns of thinking, this bud is recommended for those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.

Stoney Girl Gardens only sells seeds of Pitbull through licensed brick-and-mortar retailers and has not made them available for sale online. As such, prospective growers must obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants of the strain in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” Fortunately, Pitbull is a hardy grow, resistant to mold, mites, and other adverse conditions, making it a great option for newcomers to cultivation. Plants grow short and bushy with strong lateral branching and are easily accommodated indoors. Those looking to bring out the flowers’ full purple potential should briefly expose their crops to nighttime temperatures between 10 and 15 degrees below average. Pitbull flowers within a brief 6 to 7 weeks when grown indoors.

A great choice for a slow and mellow evening, Pitbull should have a home in any indica lover’s stash box. Although mostly popular in the Pacific Northwest, there’s not much stopping this bud from enjoying international fame like its alternative namesake, Mr. Worldwide.

Indica Dominant Hybrid – 80% Indica / 20% Sativa

THC: 19% – 25%, CBD: 1%

THC levels are relatively high in this indica-dominant hybrid, 25% in some tests, meaning a rapid body high that can be deeply relaxing. CBD content, on the other hand, is very low, much less than 1%. Pitbull has a sativa/indica ratio of 20:80, so there isn’t much in the way of cerebral effect or energy kick. But the physical high is enjoyable and calming, with a tingly sensation and a mood boost. This strain can be used to alleviate anxiety, depression, mood swings, migraines and other headaches, GI distress, nausea, chronic pain, and insomnia, making it an unusually effective choice for medical use. Negative effects may include dry mouth and red eyes, while dizziness and paranoia are possible but less likely. Pitbull is a cross of P-91, a sativa-dominant hybrid out of California, and Sugar Plum, an award-winning U.S. strain. Pitbull smells like lemons and flowers, while it tastes of lavender and lemons. The buds have a light green appearance. This strain can be found on the legal markets in the Pacific Northwest and in Arizona. Elsewhere it’s not as common.

Fruit Punch Marijuana Strain Information

Fruit Punch is a sativa marijuana strain made by crossing Skunk, Haze, and Northern Lights. Named for its swift hit of sweet, fruity, and tropical flavors, this sativa has something to offer in both taste and effect. Fruit Punch charges the mind with creative and social energy, so keep this strain in your stash jar for active days spent with friends or personal hobbies.

About Fruit Punch

punch

Fruit Punch is a predominantly sativa hybrid with a uniquely fruity flavor profile that might remind you of the sugary soft drinks of your youth. It was created by European company Heavyweight Seeds, the same people who have given us taste-focused strains like Lemon Cake and Green Ninja. Genetically, Fruit Punch offers something for everyone — it is a cross between Haze, Skunk #1, and Northern Lights. These three powerhouse strains combine to yield a bold, long-lasting bud with strong cerebral effects. The hybrid’s potency has been measured at between 17% and 25% THC.

Fruit Punch’s bag appeal is clear from the outset: its large flowers have a distinctly bullet-like shape. Despite being mostly sativa, these buds hold the dense, solid structure more commonly associated with indicas. The tightly-curling leaves are a bright shade of spring green and are shot through with brown and orange pistils. In some phenotypes of the strain, leaves and even stems also show faint hints of purple; these surprising hues come about when pigments called anthocyanins in the plants’ genetics are excited by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, a coating of milky-white trichomes gives these already-colorful flowers an icy sheen and accounts for their psychoactivity.

A fruity berry scent wafts up from the cured buds. Although sweet, the impression is more sugary than naturally fruity, somewhat reminiscent of candy or sherbert. Lurking underneath is a slightly piney and dank aroma. When combusted, Fruit Punch burns with a smooth smoke that’s very easy on the lungs; this smoke tastes herbal and floral on the exhale, courtesy of parent strain Haze.

Fruit Punch has a high that hits relatively quickly, bestowing a pressure that can be felt around the cheeks, eyes, and temples. As smokers adjust to this novel physical sensation, they find themselves launched into a buzzy, head-focused high. This fast-paced energy can be a great motivational tool for anything that’s on your agenda, be it complex, analytical work, innovative, creative crafts or projects, or simply mundane tasks like house cleaning. While Fruit Punch allows users to maintain lucidity and concentration, it may also have certain trippy effects — chiefly, a strong sense of time dilation. In social settings, this cerebral energy can also yield a remarkably warm and giddy feeling. After some time, a sense of physical relaxation emerges to even out this stain’s head buzz. Nevertheless, thoughts may continue to flow; although users may be less likely to be out and about as this high wears on, they may remain mentally stimulated. The combination of mental and physical effects makes Fruit Punch a great way to enhance activities that involve both brain and body, like exercise, dancing, and not least of all, sex. Although a great wake-and-bake strain, Fruit Punch is also enjoyable during the afternoon and early evening; at night, it may keep smokers overly alert.

Medical cannabis patients may find derive many psychological benefits from this mentally-focused strain. Its long-lasting focus can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders, helping them to concentrate on a single task. It may also temporarily relieve the difficult symptoms of stress and depression. Physiologically, Fruit Punch may soothe users’ aches and pains as well. Because its onset may come with the kind of “mindrace” that may lead to intense, recursive thinking, this strain is not recommended for those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.

Conveniently, Heavyweight has made seeds of Fruit Punch available for sale online. A sturdy and resilient grow, it is a good choice for newcomers to cultivation. The hybrid can be grown indoors or out, although success outdoors calls for a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Like many sativas, Fruit Punch can grow very tall and may require some early training and trimming when grown indoors. Those looking to bring out the bud’s purple potential should briefly expose their crops to nighttime temperatures at least 10 to 15 degrees below average. Fruit Punch flowers within 8 weeks when grown indoors and is ready for harvest in late September when grown outdoors. It offers a high yield of about 57 grams (or 2 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.

A great party bud, Fruit Punch can bring about a positive, energetic mood when shared with like-minded friends. Just be sure to bring enough to share, as this strain’s fruity aroma is sure to attract some attention.

 Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 70% Sativa / 30% Indica

THC: 18% – 25%, CBD: 1%

Fruit Punch is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through a cross of the classic Skunk X Haze X Northern Lights strains. With a super smooth smoke and an insanely addictive sweet fruity flavor, you’ll be begging for a hit from Fruit Punch! The taste is said to have a sweet yet tangy citrus berry flavor that’s almost sugary and an aroma to match, although with a dank pungent twist The Fruit Punch high is just as intoxicating as its flavor, with lethargic effects that are great for kicking back on a lazy afternoon when you may still need to get something done. The high hits you first with a cerebral boost that leaves you feeling euphoric and completely at ease with the world. As this state builds, so will your motivation, although this will quickly be counted by a sense of laziness. Because of these effects and its insanely powerful 18-25% average THC level, Fruit Punch is the perfect choice for patients suffering from conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, depression, and chronic fatigue. Fruit Punch buds have succulent lumpy little bright green nugs that are dotted with bright oranges, reds, and blues for an effect almost like a bowl of Fruity Pebbles!

Grow information

As easy as it is to enjoy, Fruit Punch is equally easy to grow, according to the breeder, who says it’s appropriate for first time growers and professionals alike.

The sativa-leaning hybrid, which Heavyweight Seeds says is an auto-flowering strain, grows to about 1.3 meters, or 4.3 feet, tall and flowers 70-to-80 days after germination producing very large yields of fat, resin-coated colas that are light green in color and spotted with orange stigma hairs.

Rockstar-1

Rockstar Kush Strain

Rockstar Kush, also known as BC Rockstar, is a popular strain in British Columbia renowned for its excellent medical qualities. This hybrid of Rockstar and Bubba Kush emits a heavy odor of skunk and piney Kush. Rockstar Kush, a heavy indica, helps patients overcome aches, pains, and anxieties with its relaxing effects that also stimulate a reduced appetite.

Rockstar Kush is a popular Indica-dominant hybrid strain that was created in British Columbia. Its Indica dominance means Rockstar Kush has a variety of medicinal uses, but only for very specific things. If you’re looking for an upbeat strain that will give you some energy, then you should try something like Amnesia Haze, which will give you a huge boost of creative energy. Rockstar Kush is a more relaxing strain, though, thanks to the slight Sativa inside, it shouldn’t leave you glued to the couch. It’s about a 75/25 split towards indica, meaning that the cerebral energy isn’t anything to laugh at. 


This strain is sometimes called Purple Rockstar, BC Rockstar, Rock Bubba, or Purple Rockstar strain.

WHAT DOES KUSH SMELL LIKE?

Kush is a well-known brand of cannabis. They almost always come from OG Kush crosses, and they’re known for their unique taste. The closest adjectives to describe Kush’s smells would be that it is flowery, spicy, and earthy all blended together. It’s very hard to explain through a screen, so we simply recommend trying some for yourself! Once you know the smell, it’s not something that you’ll soon forget.

ROCKSTAR STRAIN: INDICA OR SATIVA?

Rockstar is an Indica-dominant hybrid. It’s a famous strain from British Columbia and brings a lot of OG Kush’s effects and well-recognized traits with it. It has hairy nuggets that are lime green and absolutely covered in trichomes. These tasty trichomes make this strain even better, and they also make it a great choice for concentrate makers.


ROCKSTAR KUSH STRAIN GENETICS 

Some unknown British Colombia breeders brought together a Kush relative and a strain known as Rockstar and created Rockstar Kush. These two Indica strains when smushed together to create one very potent, but also very relaxing strain. The two strains that went into Rockstar Kush are:
 

  • Bubba Kush
  • Rockstar


ROCKSTAR KUSH STRAIN THC PERCENTAGE

The average Indica-dominant hybrid has around 12-13% THC content. Rockstar Kush blows this out of the water, which is the main advantage of OG Kush relatives. It’s one of the reasons that so many breeders cross strains with OG Kush. Firstly, there’s the taste. Secondly, there’s the THC percentage. Rockstar Kush has an average of 22% THC. The highest phenotypes have around 25% THC content. This can be a little overwhelming for some people, so just take it easy if you’re a new stoner.

ROCKSTAR KUSH STRAIN PRICE 

The seeds for this strain aren’t available form the original breeder. What does this mean for the price of the strain? Unfortunately, it means that the price is pretty high. In North American dispensaries, it’s only going to cost about $15 a gram. However, in Amsterdam, you’re probably going to spend a little bit more. The average price for a strain like this in a coffee shop is about $20 a gram. This doesn’t necessarily make it top shelf, but it’s relatively expensive by comparison.


ROCKSTAR STRAIN TASTE 

Rockstar Kush inherited the Kush taste from its OG Kush parent. This is a very spicy, earthy taste that should definitely be appreciated inside a flower vaporizer. Vaping inside a flower vaporizing is much healthier, as there’s no combustion of plant matter. This makes the general taste experience much better, as there’s also no paper burning. Although some strains taste perfectly good inside a blunt wrap, nothing can compare to the flavor inside a vaporizer. For the full taste experience, you should definitely grind your weed up first. The full taste of Rockstar Kush is:
 

  • Earthy
  • Skunk
  • Woody

About RockStar

Taking second place in a High Times Cannabis Cup hardly denotes a second rate strain, RockStar took second place in the 2012 hybrid Category. The strain is not to be confused with BC RockStar or Rockstar OG. The maternal strain chosen by the breeders, Bonguru Beans, is Soma A+’s strain Rockbud. Rockbud is a conglomeration of Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, a landrace Indica from Afghanistan and Afghani Hawaii. Bonguru bred the mother with Sensi Star, a mostly Indica hybrid from Paradise Seeds. Easing tension, loosening muscles and causing users to feel happy, RockStar is an Indica that does not strongly act as a sedative.

The earth and citrus flavors of RockStar may be used to deliver potent pain and muscle spasm relief. Its euphoric effects may be used to help deal with anxiety, depression and stress. Some do find that it helps them rest easy. Others use it for migraines and nausea.

When Bonguru Beans set out to create this strain, they had an indoor setup in mind but RockStar can do just as well outside. Plants do well in soil or hydroponics and can be ready in eight to nine weeks. This strain can do well in a Sea of Green or can be grown as a multi-branching plant. Outdoors this strain can reach as tall as two meters and may yield as much as a pound per plant. A good choice for beginners, RockStar tends to produce about a half pound indoors.

 Indica Dominant Hybrid – 75% Indica / 25% Sativa

THC: 22% – 25%

Rockstar Kush, also commonly called “Rockstar OG” by medical patients, is an indica dominant hybrid (75% indica/25% sativa) strain created through a cross of the insanely potent Rockstar X Bubba Kush strains. This powerful bud has a well-balanced but extremely potent high that is powered by an intensely high THC level that typically falls between 22-25% on average. The high starts with a feeling of uplifted euphoria with a hazy introspection that immediately relieves any feelings of anxiety or racing thoughts. This high slowly spreads throughout the body leaving you completely relaxed with a slight sense of sedation. This sedative feeling eventually leads to a pretty heavy couch-lock with an intense case of the munchies. In fact, the couch-lock can be so intense for some users that it can cause feelings of paranoia and fear. Because of these relaxing and heavy effects, Rockstar Kush is a favorite strain for treating chronic pain, chronic stress or anxiety, and inflammation. This bud has a delicious classic aroma of earthy skunky blueberry that becomes spicy and pungent when the nugs are broken apart. The taste is similar, with a flavor of rich spicy blueberry earth that has a pungent skunky aftertaste that intensifies upon exhale. Rockstar Kush buds have medium-sized lime green spade-shaped super airy nugs with rich amber hairs and a fine layer of crystal clear trichomes.

Rockstar Kush cannabis strain is a 75/25 Indica dominant hybrid with a insanely potent THC average of 22-25%, meaning beginners should stay away. It tastes like skunky earth and blueberry with spicy, pungent notes. The flavour is similar with a more decadent, leathery essence and a skunk aftertaste. Airy nugs are moderately sized with lime green spades for bodies, amber hairs and translucent trichomes. This strain can treat inflammation, stress, anxiety and chronic pain. Ideal for evening usage.

Type of High

Rockstar Kush cannabis strain’s high begins with a hazy, introspective sense of euphoria which spreads to a full-body relaxation and just a touch of sedation. This can evolve into a heavy couch-lock with some serious munchies.

Genetics

Aurora Indica

Aurora Indica Cannabis Strain

The Aurora Indica strain is indica-dominant and is the result of a pairing between Afghan landrace and Northern Lights. Cannabis enthusiasts often use this strain to make hash, and it is also popular in dissolving stress, releasing tension and coaxing away insomnia and pain.

The aurora borealis is one of Mother Nature’s most spectacular sights, featuring on many a bucket list. The experience of watching them is said to be memorizing and relaxing. They also provide the name to another marvel, the Aurora Indica strain of weed.

Aurora Indica

Aurora Indica is said to have a similar effect to the strange lights, being both captivating yet relaxing at the same time. The breed is a favorite of many for the pleasant high, which does the job while avoiding being too intense. Users report feeling immense waves of contemplation in a full-body stone.

But what do you need to know about Aurora Indica? Will it leave you seeing lights, or is it tamer than this? We cover everything about the strain throughout this article.

What Is the Aurora Indica Strain?

Aurora Indica strain weed is an indica-dominant plant. Given the name, this shouldn’t come as too much of a revelation. The breed was first created by Nirvana Seeds, who are also the makers of Papaya and Bubblicious. Nirvana Seeds birthed Aurora Indica through the crossing of an Afghan landrace with Northern Lights. Northern Lights also passed on its name to the breed, with aurora borealis being the scientific name of the northern lights phenomenon.

Known for possessing a sizable amount of THC, Aurora Indica gives a creeping high which sets you at ease and eats away at your worries. The body high in this one is strong, and there is often a quick onset of couch lock once you consume Aurora Indica.

Aurora Indica can be tricky to track down in dispensaries, but not impossible. It is especially popular in Arizona and Oregon. The seeds are also readily available worldwide through online purchases, which helps give Aurora Indica a more international presence than other strains.

The plant is known for giving out exceptionally high levels of resin. Because of this, Aurora Indica is a popular strain for creating hash. The hash made from Aurora Indica is almost entirely black and has a pronounced, distinctive taste.

Aurora Indica Strain Aroma

The Aurora Indica marijuana strain gives out a deep and luxurious scent. The initial impression is an earthy scent flaked with a spiciness that excites. Deeper within the aroma are tinges of fruit. There is a sweet combination of mango, berries, and lavender blended within the earthy tone.

Grinding the buds releases further smelling surprises. Woody notes of sap and pine release into the air. The scent is a suitably pleasant starter to the effects provided by consuming.

Aurora Indica Strain Flavor

Your nose isn’t the only thing in for a treat. Aurora Indica provides a marvelous taste, too. The smoke is smooth and goes down easily. The first flavors are distinctly sweet and spicy, with a slightly chemical hint to them.

Upon exhale, the strain hits with a coffee-like, fruity aftertaste. It is truly delicious. It’s a super smoking experience, providing pleasurable tastes.

Aurora Indica Strain Appearance

Aurora Indica has medium to large buds with a conical shape to them. The nugs have a broad base that narrows into an arrow-like tip. The buds are dense and compact, as you would expect from an indica-dominant strain.

The leaves curl tightly and have a delightful sea green color, accented by red and brown pistils. A cloud of white, crystal-like trichomes spreads across the flowers and lightens the overall tone.

If all of this has you tempted to try growing your own Aurora Indica, read on for all the tips and information you need.

Aurora Indica Strain Grow Info

Aurora Indica strain seeds are relatively prevalent across the Internet. You can purchase them from several different specialist websites. As when purchasing any cannabis seeds, you should always check the reputation of the company you are buying from first.

Aurora Indica strain seeds are still regularly available from the original breeder’s website, Nirvana Seeds. If possible, this would be our recommended site to purchase from. By buying the strain direct from the original breeders, you can be confident that what you are purchasing is Aurora Indica.

Another option is to gain a clipping from a healthy Aurora Indica plant. Clippings can be used to create “clones” of the parent plant that are genetically identical.

Suitable for both outdoor and indoor growth, Aurora Indica is a reasonably easy grow and would be a good strain for cultivation newcomers to start. The plant doesn’t become too tall, topping out around 3 feet. It will grow bushy, with large, heavy buds.

In terms of climate, you will need semi-humid with day temperatures of between 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to use a dehumidifier to avoid the climate becoming too moist. With such dense colas, mold can quickly develop, which would ruin your harvest.

The other thing to bear in mind is the herb gives off a particularly pungent aroma. Use an extractor fan to avoid detection if this is a concern.

It is recommended you use the Screen of Green training method early on in the plant’s life. When grown outdoors, the more sunshine, the better.

In terms of flowering, you will be waiting around nine to 11 weeks, slightly longer than other indicas. Indoors, you can expect yields of 10 to 14 ounces per square meter. Outdoor grows will flower around the end of September and beginning of October. Yields of 14 ounces per plant can be expected.

THC Content of the Aurora Indica Strain

Aurora Indica cannabis is known for moderate levels of THC. When tested, the strain delivers a THC concentration in the range of 12-20%. This potency of THC puts Aurora on the low-middle range for THC content.

The level of THC in Aurora Indica is low enough to make it a suitable strain for cannabis beginners. At this concentration, you will feel the psychoactive effects of the THC, but it shouldn’t prove to be too overwhelming as long as you are sensible in the amount you consume.

Equally, its mid-range THC potency may make it appeal to more experienced smokers who are tired of “super skunk” strains. Provided you consume reasonable amounts, veteran smokers can get their stone on without feeling totally bombed beyond belief.

CBD Content of the Aurora Indica Strain

The CBD content of Aurora Indica is practically non-existent. Test results regularly show the CBD concentration to be 0.1%.

With such a minimal amount of CBD contained in the breed, users should not expect to feel any of the health benefits associated with CBD. The level is far below that needed to give effect, and it would be best to view Aurora Indica as basically having no CBD at all.

If you are looking to benefit from some of the many potential uses of CBD, you should look for another breed which is CBD potent. There are plenty available, so conduct a little research to find the right one for you.

Medical Benefits of the Aurora Indica Strain

With Aurora Indica containing next to no CBD and a good amount of THC, any therapeutic benefits are likely to be focused around the strain’s psychoactive effects.

Users report a body high that gives a strong case of couch-lock. This sensation is where your limbs feel heavy and tired, and you are literally “locked to the couch.” The overall relaxation effect is added to by feelings of calm and happiness. All of this combines to give the strain possible benefits for those looking to fight the effects of stress.

The general heaviness and relaxation also helps those suffering from hyperactivity. It has a real calming effect.

The couch-lock gives way to a sleepiness that is hard to resist. Thanks to this, Aurora Indica can help with those suffering from sleep-related issues such as insomnia or pains which keep you awake.

We do have to point out that although Aurora Indica can provide medical benefits, they are not guaranteed. Everyone’s body is slightly different in their makeup. This means they react differently to substances and means you can’t predict with 100% accuracy how Aurora Indica will affect you. This could lead to you not seeing the same medical benefits that others have found for the same issue. All medical treatment has the potential for this.

Possible Side Effects of the Aurora Indica Strain

One of Aurora Indica’s massive selling points is its relative lack of side effects. It does have the side effects which are expected of all marijuana, but to a lesser degree than many other strains.

Aurora Indica

Users should still expect to have dry eyes and mouth from the strain, but not to a ridiculous amount.

When smoking large amounts, feelings of paranoia and anxiety can occur. Again though, this is uncommon and reported to a lesser degree than other breeds of cannabis. It is also easily avoided by just not smoking an excessive amount.

Couch-lock is a commonly reported effect of Aurora Indica, but users say it is an easier one to break out of than other strains. Still, be aware of this and perhaps don’t use Aurora Indica when you have a list of things you need to get done. The couch-lock is supposed to have a more pronounced effect on those with a lower THC tolerance.

Another thing to keep in mind is the delayed onset many have with Aurora Indica. The cannabis is known as a creeper strain, meaning the effects often take a little while to kick in after consuming. Don’t try and compensate for this by using more than you usually would. Let the effects take hold first before deciding on using more.

The relatively low strength of the side effects is because Aurora Indica doesn’t have exceptionally high levels of THC. With less of the psychoactive cannabinoid present, the cerebral effects are weaker. It also means you can most likely smoke more than other strains before you start to feel unwanted side effects. However, do not be caught out by the creeping onset and be fooled into thinking you need to use more as the effects haven’t yet fully set in.

Please remember that Aurora Indica can still cause unpleasant feelings if smoked in excess, so enjoy responsibly. Use a regular dosage to begin with and allow extra time for the effects to set in before deciding to use more.


And so that concludes our investigation into Aurora Indica. We hope you found out what you needed about the strain from our information. Generally, Aurora Indica sounds like the perfect breed for newcomers to the marijuana world. With decent levels of THC, you can enjoy the effects without being overwhelmed, just be wary of the delayed onset of the effects.

It also offers an excellent entry into cannabis cultivation. There are a few simple rules to follow, but if you do, you will be rewarded with a fair crop of bud. From here, you could then venture onto more advanced grows.

Overall then, Aurora Indica proves to be just as beautiful as its namesake, if slightly less spectacular.
