Trainwreck Strain

Trainwreck Strain

The strain “Super Red Espresso Snowflake” always stood out because it’s the perfect skewering of drug dealers who tried tell you what kind of strain you were buying: they were really just making shit up. However, now that legal marijuana and dispensaries exist, actual marijuana strains are more prevalent than ever, so we figured it’s time we start learning them all, one by one.

Trainwreck didn’t get its name or claim to fame in the marijuana community for no reason at all. This exhilarating hybrid strain has mind blowing components that will hit you like a train after just a couple of hits. A combination of 2 sativas (Mexican and Thai) and one indica (Afghani), this strain is nothing short of a mental roller coaster ride. Although Trainwreck is mainly sativa dominant (80:20 sativa/indica ratio), you can expect a mellowing body high in addition to a cognitive high that administers imaginative and inventive thoughts. Patients commonly use Trainwreck to relieve pain, PTSD and stress. You can smoke this strain comfortably throughout the day even with its super high potency. It’s long green leaves are accompanied by a pine/citrus aroma that can’t be mistaken. You can expect a noticeable after taste of lemon with a slight cough when inhaling this strain.. There’s definitely a heavy amount of trichomes (hairs) on this strain which gives it a light green color and sometimes a subtle hint of gray.

About Trainwreck Strain

Trainwreck is a mind-bending hybrid with potent sativa effects that hit like a freight train. Mexican and Thai sativas were bred with Afghani indicas to produce this Northern California staple, passing on a sweet lemon and spicy pine aroma. Trainwreck begins its speedy hurtle through the mind with a surge of euphoria, awakening creativity and happiness. Migraines, pain, and arthritis are mowed down by Trainwreck’s high THC content, and many patients also use it for relief of anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and PTSD. Trainwreck flowers finish up in early October outdoors, while indoor gardens are ready for harvest 8 weeks into flowering.

This strain was supposedly the creation of two Californian brothers back in the late 1970s. It is a mix of three other strains of Thai (Sativa), Mexican (Sativa) and Afghani (Indica). In its true form, Trainwreck is ninety percent Sativa and only ten percent Indica. As the story goes the two brothers had to pull their crop early because there was a nasty train wreck that happened near their grow site and they didn’t want it discovered, thus the name.

Trainwreck can grow well both indoors and outdoors. Plants of this strain grow fairly tall but the Indica in them causes them to fill out well. Inside grown in hydro a single plant can yield up to 500 grams in a square meter. When grown in soil outside Trainwreck plants are ready for harvesting in early October and can yield up to 700 grams. This strain flowers somewhere between eight and ten weeks.

Aroma, Flavor & Appearance

As mentioned above, one of the characteristics that have caused Trainwreck to become such a world-famous strain is its distinctive and immediately identifiable aroma and flavor. The minute you crack open your storage jar, the scent of lemon-lime will overwhelm you and the room you’re in, but this version is unlike most other citrus aroma strains.

Topped with notes of menthol and acidic sourness, nothing about the Trainwreck name or appearance would lead you to believe that this is actually how it smells, but the result is pleasant and unexpected, acting somewhat as a surprise for first-time triers of Trainwreck weed. The flavor is likewise satisfying, giving off a semi-spicy or even peppery tang that zings and zaps the taste buds, waking you up with its charming, pungent taste that hits with earthy and woodsy notes after the initial impact.

Appearance-wise, you can tell Trainwreck produces a strong high just by looking at a single bud. The buds are often covered in a thick layer of frosty THC-packed trichomes, with little bits of resin that glimmer and sparkle each time the light hits it. The buds are beautiful with all their glam, but additionally, they are healthy and potent neon green in color. Sultry, brassy orange, and sometimes slightly red pistils curl and twist amongst the sticky frost and bright sugar leaves.

Trainwreck Growing Info

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation, though particularly responsive to warm, Mediterranean climates, this strain is resistant to both pests and moisture.

 No matter where the crop is grown, trim these girls regularly so that their leaves don’t spread out too much and overwhelm each other, in addition to consuming the space that they are located in.

Thankfully, Trainwreck has high resistance towards everyday pests, mold, powdery mildew, and diseases. Outdoors and indoors grows are both suitable for this hefty strain, but Trainwreck weed typically takes longer to mature and then harvest when kept outside. If you do choose to go the all-natural route, be sure to only cultivate Trainwreck weed in a climate that is dry, yet kept away from frost.

The flowering period for this ganja is 8-10 weeks, with outdoor harvest falling around early to late October. Outdoor yields typically range around 25 ounces per plant, which is quite generous compared to the indoor harvest, which is around 18 ounces per square meter.

THC Content – Highest Test

The average THC content of Trainwreck is 18%, but some samples have reached as high as 22%.

CBD Content – Highest Test

Trainwreck has little CBD to speak of, usually less than 1%.

Trainwreck Medical Benefits

It is debatable whether or not Trainwreck is capable of assisting individuals suffering from mental conditions such as anxiety. Overall, it seems that possibly depression, stress, and PTSD respond to this reefer, but those who have anxiety may want to choose a different strain for their medical needs. Many patient reports claim that this strain increased or even induced paranoia and panic attacks.

Trainwreck is a relaxant and can induce a jelly-like sensation over the whole body. This is something many prescription medications fail to do for individuals who manage massive amounts of pain and stress in their joints, muscles, tendons, bones, and more.

Trainwreck Negative Effects

Many reviews of the Trainwreck strain do claim that this marijuana has the ability to assist those who deal with anxiety and panic attacks. However, after reading many of the reviews from those who have directly tried this slightly psychoactive and hefty strain, it is obvious that many claim to not have enjoyed Trainwreck. This is often because they are prone to panic attacks and had an episode after consuming this cannabis.

It seems that overall, it is best for patients and consumers with a tendency to react negatively to THC heavy weed to stay away from Trainwreck.  It can increase anxiety, paranoia, and other uncomfortable experiences.

The Trainwreck strain overall produces a pleasant high with minimal side effects, but if you get anxious easily beware.

The other reported negative side effects are rather minimal and easily manageable, with dry mouth (cottonmouth) and dry eyes sometimes occurring after intake. Dry mouth is preventable by drinking plenty of hydrating fluids before, during, and after your high, which will also keep you hydrated making developing a headache less likely.

Keeping a bottle of moisturizing eye drops nearby when consuming cannabis is a wise idea, because then if your eyes become dry or itchy, these drops will take care of the problem with instant relief. Eye drops can be purchased inexpensively at most drug stores. As long as precautions are taken, the Trainwreck strain overall produces a pleasant high with minimal side effects, but if you get anxious easily beware, this strain is not for you.

For the longest time Trainwreck was only available in clone form but more recently a few places have been able to recreate seeds of the strain. There are several others that have tried to imitate the strain under the same name, some with great success. Real Trainwreck will have thin leaves and dense buds full of resin. The buds give off a strong citrus smell as they ripen..

Super Skunk

Super Skunk Strain

The Super Skunk Strain is known globally for its unique “hybrid” qualities. It is loved for its distinct and famously fragrant “skunky” scent and for producing the perfect high that allows you to loosen up. Super Skunk sinks you into a deep state of relaxation, while still being in a clear state of concentration and clarity.

Super Skunk

A much-appreciated strain among amateur hobby-smokers and professional cannabis judges, the Skunk line of cannabis has a unique story of origin. Super Skunk is a popular and largely indica strain.

It was created by crossing Skunk 1 with an original Afghani strain. With this cross, the breeder, Sensei Seeds, refers to the strain as the “first hybrid breeding project” with Afghani roots – an upgraded “super” version of its original Skunk #1.

  • Effects: Giggly, Energetic, Hungry, Happy, Talkative
  • Side Effects: Paranoia, Concern, Dry eyes, Heightened sensory perception
  • Common Usage: Anorexia, Arthritis, Bipolar disorder, Muscular dystrophy, Phantom limb pain, Migraines

Super Skunk Effects

Normally, the strength of its effects varies depending on individuals. Super Skunk cannabis strain is famous for its powerful stress-relieving qualities. It induces deep relaxation and a calm, euphoric high offering you with a good way to ease your daily insomnia and anxiety.

Super Skunk

It offers a strong high, as you would expect of an Indica dominant strain, but it keeps you focused and aware of your surroundings. The Sativa components offer a clear-headed high which allows you to focus and be creative with a heavy sense of unwinding.

Super Skunk delivers a bold body-high due to the strain being indica-dominant, but keeps you focused and in tune with your surroundings. The underlying prominent sativa presence creates a clear-headed high. This allows you to focus and think straight while feeling a heavy sense of unwinding.

Super Skunk is also in demand for causing a profound state of elation, often causing the smoker to laugh uncontrollably – but also while enjoying an increased sociability and light-hearted talkativeness.

Super Skunk Aroma and Flavors

Super Skunk has a pungent aroma. Some people say that the smell reminds them of pungent cheese that has been left in the sun. However, when you get past the initial harsh taste, you are treated to a hidden sweetness. When you grind the buds apart, they emit a smell reminiscent of fresh honey.

On first inhale, you are hit with a save of flavors that somehow overwhelming but settle on your tongue offering a complex yet enjoyable flavor. But you will mainly feel the sweetness. As the flavor develops, you can now distinguish between the sweet citrus and the earthy undertones. The smoke is smooth making it easy to inhale

Super Skunk Adverse reactions

Super Skunk cannabis has a body-heavy effect which can lead to side effects like blood-shot eyes and dry mouth. In more extreme cases users experience temporary deliria and mild paranoia.

Nervousness and anxiety has also been observed in some cases, due to its “clear head” effects, patients may become confused by the slowing down effect Super Skunk may have on their bodies, while their minds and thoughts stay switched on.

Another unpopular side effect is that Super Skunk can cause the “munchies”, leading to a strong surge in appetite and the absence of the feeling of fullness. This, however,  is purely a matter of perspective, given that Super Skunk is also used to treat patients who suffer from a lack of appetite.

Super Skunk Medical Benefits

  • THC: 19 – 21%
  • CBD: 0.84 – 1.42%
  • CBC: 0.25 – 0.99%
  • CBG: 0.28 – 2%
  • CBN: 0.08 – 0.25%
  • THCV: 0.41 – 1.37%

Because of its strong relaxing characteristics, Super Skunk has proven to medically benefit patients who suffer from high levels of stress and body pain caused by the inability to physically unwind.

Patients who suffer from insomnia, depression and anxiety are known to benefit from the use of Super Skunk. This makes itself the perfect alternative to synthetic prescription medication, which can cause an array of side effects.

Cancer patients, especially those who are being treated with chemotherapy, often suffer from a lack of appetite, causing extreme and often dangerous weight-loss in many cases. These patients have been successfully treated with Super Skunk to reverse their weight-loss by eliminating the nausea caused by the radiation and encouraging them to consume their meals as normal.

For those who have to endure painful headaches, migraines and cramps, Super Skunk has helped eliminate symptoms and aches.

It has also been credited for its ability to lessen their feelings of stress – which can often be the underlying cause of these issues to begin with. Another breakthrough in the use of medical marijuana, which is especially poignant with the use of Super Skunk, is that it is known to aid in the treatment of seizures, for which we have to thank its above average THC levels, which is at a whopping 20%, with its complementing CBD levels at 2.4%.

Afghan Kush Strain

Afghan Kush Strain

aka Afghani Kush

is a powerful and one of the purest Indica plants available. Hypnotic and heavy-hitting, the plant is often used to make hashish.

It’s is a landrace strain that originated in the Amu Darya River Valley, nestled on the border of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The cultivar grew in the wild for centuries and stabilized its genetic profile through continual natural selection.

Afghan Kush Strain

This pure indica is one of the best and purest choices you can make when looking to be the most relaxed you can possibly be. This bud originated in the Hindu Kush mountain range and has been developed and perfected over the years, creating the perfect Afghan indica experience.

Afghan Kush seeds were created by a Sensi Seeds partner from the Netherlands, who engineered the perfect strain and make it easy for everyone to grow. This 100% indica is loved for its no-fuss strong body-high that can relax even the most stressed out human being out there.

What is the Afghan Kush Strain?

The Afghan Kush strain is an incredibly well known, potent indica strain that comes from the Hindu Kush mountain range. Afghan Kush is an excellent example of a landrace strain. This means that it originally grew all on its own in the wild without any human interference. Local people in Uzbekistan and Afghanistan would simply harvest it as they found it.

This means that, instead of endless decades of cultivation and crossbreeding, the Afghan Kush strain developed based on evolution. This results in a really interesting blend of unique characteristics and is one of the reasons why so many people prefer it. It not only produces a specific type of high – usually a super clean one – but also an exciting blend of cannabinoids.

You get plenty of both THC and CBD, resulting in a balanced experience with plenty of medical benefits. The high itself is exceptionally well known and appreciated. It has perhaps one of the most typical indica highs among all strains of weed available.

History Of The Afghan Kush Marijuana Strain

This is one of the oldest strains that was perfected over time. The Afghan Kush plant originates in the Hindu Kush Mountain near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Also known as the Afghan OG, Afghan Kush is a naturally grown plant that has existed for a few centuries. It’s a 100% Indica with a very high CBD level of 6%. The Afghan Kush THC level is around 21% and it also has a CBN level of 1%.

It is among the most popular strains on the market and it’s available in many dispensaries throughout the US where recreational marijuana is legal. The relaxing and happy high it gives to consumers allows them to forget about the daily stress and enjoy a nice time in the comfort of their homes.

Afghan Kush Effects

From the moment you first inhale it, the high will seep into your body exceptionally quickly. It feels like a significant rush of sensations, pouring through your very bones and instantly calming and soothing you.

Instead of the mental rush that most hybrid or sativa strains offer up, Afghan Kush is felt almost entirely within the body. You will feel like you need to find a comfortable, convenient surface to collapse onto immediately.

Afghan Kush Strain

It isn’t so much as to feel overpowering, but after a while, it can feel rather too tiring to blink, and you might go a bit delirious.

As happens a lot with potent indicas, towards the end of the high, you will notice an intense lethargy. Your eyes will be weighty, your bones slightly tired, and you will feel like you desperately need to lie down.

The best thing to do is not to fight it and head to bed. Simply get to bed, wrap yourself up warm, and enjoy the high. As long as you don’t mind falling asleep a bit earlier than intended, this is an excellent strain for any occasion.


This strain has a very rich and fragrant earthiness to it, that makes it instantly appealing, as soon as it enters the room. Afghan Kush is very pungent, and boasts of a special sweet and floral note that will hang in the air and accentuate your high. Often, its smell is cut with a bit of spice, making the whole experience even more exotic and interesting.


Afghan Kush is easy on the lungs, and goes down smooth, with not much of a chance at a cough. Its woody-pine taste is lined by a bit of a creamy inhale, and you can instantly taste the herbal notes it is infused with. On the exhale it will leave a bit of a spiciness, making its earthy and pungent flavor even more noticeable.


When trying to describe the qualities of something, calling something “typical” can feel like a bit of an insult. However, when it comes to the Afghan Kush strain, that is simply the best word for it. Afghan Kush is an incredibly typical, ordinary-looking strain.

It has a decently attractive coloration, but one that makes you think of almost every other marijuana strain in existence.

It also possesses a unique blend of potent pistils and pleasantly strong resin, giving the whole thing a bit of a shiny appearance. However, that isn’t really enough to make it something special based on appearance alone.

The Afghan Kush growing is considered to be of easy difficulty if you’re living in an area that has a Mediterranean climate. It’s not complicated at all and quite easy to cultivate and maintain. The Afghan Kush grow is relatively tall for an Indica plant, so if you decide to grow it indoors, you should really find a space with a high ceiling so that it has enough room to thrive. Even for beginners, it wouldn’t be a hard challenge.

The Afghan Kush flowering time is around 7-8 weeks, which is considered to be quite short, which makes it even better for growers. The yield is quite generous as well as it usually gives around 16 ounces per square meter indoors and about 21 ounces per plant when grown outside.

If you’re living in the proper climate where this plant can thrive, it’s best grown outside as the yield is much higher, which will increase your profits.

Medical Benefits of the Afghan Kush Strain

Strain Cannabinoids

  • THC: 17 – 20%
  • CBD: 4.94 – 7.28%
  • CBC: 0.1 – 1.36%
  • CBG: 0.44 – 2.4%
  • CBN: 0.07 – 0.28%
  • THCV: 0.47 – 1.75%

Afghan Kush acts as a pretty typical example of an indica strain. This means that it has what could be described as characteristic effects on the body, and thus the usual medical benefits.

For starters, the most obvious and well used medical benefit of the Afghan Kush strain is in treating insomnia. There are few strains that produce such a potent sleep effect as the Afghan Kush strain.

Though it doesn’t instantly cause you to pass out, it is perfect for taking a couple of hours before bedtime, as it will gradually lull you into a gentle sleep.

Beyond getting to sleep, Afghan Kush is excellent for helping to relieve stress and other negative consequences of mental disorders. Though most people tend to prefer sativas for treating psychological issues, the value of this potent indica cannot be overstated.

It is difficult to feel stressed or depressed when enjoying these effects, so take Afghan Kush when feeling intense anxiety or other unwanted emotions.

Some people also enjoy using Afghan Kush to treat painful conditions, as it can be great to relieve the feeling of pain no matter what you are dealing with.

Just keep in mind that, whatever reason or condition you are using Afghan Kush to treat, it is going to induce that sleepiness regardless. The intoxicating drowsiness that this strain creates is inescapable. No matter what dosage you choose to use, you are going to feel incredibly tired.

THC Content – Highest Test

Like most strains that can be described as a landrace, Afghan Kush has a typically high THC concentration. This makes sense, considering it possesses a pretty potent sensation. After all, you can’t really get powerful effects without a powerfully high level of THC.

Most samples of Afghan Kush cannabis have about 20% to 21% of THC, which is among the highest levels of THC found in most marijuana.

CBD Content – Highest Test

The CBD content of the Afghan Kush strain is actually quite surprising. Most of the time, when you get a powerful strain with lots of THC, there isn’t really any CBD to speak of. This happens because most strains are slowly and carefully bred through generations to contain the right level of THC. To get this, most of the time, the CBD content is almost completely bred out.

However, Afghan Kush comes from a landrace strain, which means that it originally developed without human intervention. The CBD was not bred out, giving it plenty of cannabidiol and other cannabinoids.

With about 5% to 6% CBD content in any particular sample of Afghan Kush, you have plenty of the necessary CBD to give you pleasant medical benefits.

Possible Side Effects of the Afghan Kush Strain

  • dry mouth – 46%
  • dry eyes – 30%
  • dizziness – 12%
  • paranoia – 9%
  • headache – 6%.

The significant thing about the side effects of the Afghan Kush strain is that, while it does have a high dose of THC, it also possesses the right balance of other cannabinoids.

Though not always the case, many marijuana side effects come about due to a lack of balancing cannabinoids. The 6% CBD and not insignificant amounts of CBN and other cannabinoids mean that you won’t notice anywhere near the level of adverse effects.

However, there are still always going to a few things to note. To begin with, you can expect both dry eyes and dry mouth to a decent extent, so make sure you keep a glass of water on hand to quickly deal with this.

Furthermore, the higher level of THC when compared to other strains, can tend to invoke dizziness. This only really happens in those without a great deal of marijuana experience, though. It can also happen if you try and smoke too much at once, so make sure you pace yourself so you can really enjoy it.

A small percentage of people report headaches as a result of smoking Afghan Kush, but once again, this only really happens after smoking too much of it.

As long as you pace yourself, you are likely going to be okay. Just maybe avoid this strain if you tend to get feelings of paranoia; the higher levels of THC don’t react well with that, inducing further paranoia.

Reasons For Choosing The Afghan Kush

The Afghan Kush is great if you’re looking for highly potent weed that will make you feel relaxed, happy and hungry all at the same time while making you sleepy afterward. It’s a great strain if you’re looking to deal with chronic stress, pain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia or if you have a lack of appetite and need to deal with that issue. It’s also great for people who are restless as it has a very good calming effect on the body and mind letting you forget about all your worries. It’s an extremely potent strain and you should approach it with caution if you’re a novice, making sure you don’t use too much because it might make you couch-locked.

Who Should Choose The Afghan Kush?

A lot of users reported back that this plant is able to improve a lot of states and chronic conditions so it would mostly benefit those that are having issues with chronic pain, depression, anxiety, PMS, PTSD, lack of appetite, insomnia, headaches, migraines, but it’s also popular among users that want to use it recreationally and enjoy a relaxing afternoon or night in front of their couch with positive and happy thoughts.


When it comes to historic, culturally significant strains, Afghan Kush is up there with some of the best. Just like with other strains of this caliber, if you pass up the chance to try it out when offered, you are missing out on one of the great experiences of the culture.

Marijuana has a history, an origin, and a specific timeline; this strain exists on that timeline as a precursor to thousands of other strains. Not just that, but it is a testament to what nature can create when left to its own devices.

Without the endless growing and cross breeding, nature managed to make this potent, enjoyable indica all on its own. Just because of that, it is worthwhile to give it a try.

Ace of Spades Strain

Ace of Spades grows to medium height and has a sturdy structure, reportedly responding well to the Sea of Green (SOG) method. The strain is said to deliver a large yield of heavy, highly resinous colas in an eight-week flowering cycle.

Ace of Spades can grow both indoors and out, forming a tall, bushing-out plant. For growing this plant indoors, it’s recommended to top it for height control.

Inside, it needs eight to nine weeks to finish flowering. Ace of Spades will provide a large yield with up to 20% of THC.

Experienced Ace of Spades growers recommend commencing Low-Stress Training (LST) early in the vegetative stage. LST involves gently manipulating and bending the plant’s stem to one side to encourage new node growth. A careful way of carrying out LST is to use the three-finger technique. With your thumb behind the stem, gently bend the plant’s stem over your thumb using your index and middle finger. It is essential to give the plant at least 24 hours to recover and respond after each LST bout.

In 2014, at the High Times Seattle U.S. Cannabis Cup, an Ace of Spades shatter contained a whopping 2.4% THCV. For the record, shatter is a form of cannabis concentrate, so-called because it tends to shatter like glass when cold.

Some of THCV’s purported medicinal properties include:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Neuroprotective

  • Flavors: Berry, Dank, Lemon, Sage
  • Aromas: Citrus, Earthy, Harsh, Herbal, Kush, Sage


5 th Element was bred by Elemental Seeds by crossing All Spark OG with Blackberry. Blackberry is well-known for its delicate balancing act between the headier aspects of a sativa and the sedative properties of an indica. The All Spark OG parent likely lent to the 5 th Element’s couch-lock qualities.

5th Element Effects

The Fifth Element, compared to other Indicas, has a relatively quick onset that starts within minutes after the first two to three puffs. It starts off with an uplifting buzz that spreads all over the mind. Almost instantaneously, there is a noticeable change in behavior. It leaves users feeling happy throughout the day.

One of the best ways to enjoy the Indica-leaning strain is during brunch or an early dinner with friends. Preferably, at a restaurant near home or in one’s kitchen since it is likely that its Indica effects start crashing by the end of the second or third hour.

Soothing the body is what is left of the initial rush of euphoria. A light pressure builds around the temples. It smooths creases in the forehead, like ironing a freshly laundered piece of cloth, before making its way down to the toes through the muscles. Ebbing and flowing all over the body is a wave of relaxation that lulls users to tranquility.


Due to its high levels of THC, Fifth Element is extremely pungent. Its earthy aroma fills the room almost instantly after opening a bag of its buds. Breaking it apart, on the other hand, introduces the sharp scent of hash along with the aroma of sour lemon. Upon combustion, a woody pine takes over.


Fifth Element’s smoke is harsh. Drawing it in can lead to coughing especially as its sharp hash coats the tongue. However, it is later replaced by the citric taste of lemon blended with a refreshing pine and a hint of cedar. On the exhale, it leaves an earthy aftertaste.

Adverse reactions

Red eyes and a cottonmouth are two common reactions to Fifth Element’s moisture-inhibiting cannabinoids. Along with it is the slight possibility of a disorienting dizziness as a result of the long-lasting dry spell. The effects are usually mild, but users may still ease the discomfort by downing a few glasses of water.

Although rare, it is possible for users to experience a subtle feeling of paranoia followed by a headache a few hours after. Its main cause is overconsumption but one’s disposition before the high can also be a contributing factor. It is better to avoid the strain when the latter is the case.

Medical Benefits of the 5th Element

Fifth Element can have many uses for medical cannabis patients as well. Its deep, therapeutic relaxation can temporarily improve the harsh symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, and even PTSD. It can also dull physical pain, taking the sting out of temporary injuries and chronic discomfort due to conditions like lupus or arthritis. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, can treat minor annoyances like headaches. Under the right circumstances. Fifth Element may even lull insomniacs to sleep. Because it is more likely to soothe than to mentally agitate, this strain is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.

Although subtle, its invigorating head high stimulates the appetite. It encourages users to eat heartily while simultaneously soothing the stomach so food travels down faster and smoother. In this way, patients need not regurgitate any of the meals taken before or during the session. For this reason, Fifth Element is not only a source of reprieve for patients with eating disorders like anorexia, but also for long-sufferers of chemotherapy’s nauseating effects.

Eventually, the sense of tranquility turns into a heavy-lidded buzz. This is not a setback. After all, adequate rest hastens the healing process. With its sedating properties, Fifth Element takes users to bed early while also enhancing the quality and quantity of sleep.
