Different strains are good for different things. Learn more about popular strains, and my personal favorites.
Indica’s vs Sativa’s- Red vs White
Traditionally, Sativa’s are known for being “heady” highs, active, creative, get out and go for a hike, weed the garden or tackle that toy room, without wanting to throw them all away.
Indica’s are known as “in the couch”, sedative, relaxing, done with the day kind of feeling.
That being said, it’s more like a red vs. white wine. You may like one over the other, then discover a really great indica that is uplifting and just what you wanted. It is a bit subjective, each person reacts a little bit differently. For instance, I have a girlfriend who smokes indicas all day only, and one strong sativa like Blue Dream will knock her out and she worthless for the rest of the day, just relaxing on the couch.
So, I like to say, “The Nose Knows!” Just like wine (beginning to follow the theme) smell testing is one of the best ways to discover what you are drawn to. It can be very beneficial to keep a journal of the strains you smoke. Especially, for beginners. It helps you remember what strains you’ve tried, the smell, flavor and how they made you feel. This makes is easy to keep track of your favorites, figure out which ones you prefer during the day, evening or going out for Ladies night. It’s also helpful since they are allows coming up with new strains or changing the names of them for marketing purposes. But they can’t change the genetics. When you know the dominant strains in a hybrid you will know what type of high to expect.
What’s a Hybrid? –
Hybrid simply means a blend on two or more strains. It can be an Indica and Sativa blended together like White Widow (my personal favorite) or it can be two Indicas blended together like OG Kush. Hybrids are day-time highs, they can be calming or uplifting without being to sedative.
CBD Only and CBD Rich- Charlotte’s Web.
There are strains that have such low THC content (less then 1%) that all you feel is relaxed and calm. This is great for treating seizures. Charlotte’s Web is a hemp derived product with little to no psychoactive effects. Sunshine Diesel is another low THC, high CBD strain.
God’s Gift ✝️is an Indica dominant strain run high in THC 18-25%.
The buds are covered with gleaming white crystals✨ and quite dense. Talk about yummy, it contains flavors of grape🍇, citrus,🍊 and hash.
Its parents are Granddaddy Purple and OG Kush.
The high was a a dreamy and peaceful daze.
Which would be perfect for individuals looking for a pain reliever. It is highly effective as a stress reliever and at naturally boosting your appetite.
Forbidden Fruit is an indica dominant hybrid that comes from Cherry Pie🍒and Tangie 🍊parents. This strain has a very distant aroma. The terpene profile is a perfect mixture of Cherry Pie’s musky, sweet cherry undertones and Tangie’s loud tropical flavors. There are also notes of pine, mango, and passionfruit candy.
Forbidden Fruit is good for depression, pain and stress. All the things also known as Life!
Today’s Featured Flower: Golden Lemon
Golden Lemon is a cross between Kosher Kush and Lemon Skunk. It is an indica dominant hybrid, although the high was more like a Sativa for me.
Golden Lemon has me rising and shining with the Sun. Perfect, morning high. It has a citrus scent with a potent punch. This strain gives me a bright eyed and bushy tail feel. The high was happy, creative, euphoric and focused.
After a few Bong Snaps, my response to “What are you planned for today?” was “Building my Empire”. I was ready to run the world. I will definitely keep some of this on hand at all times.
Golden Lemon is good for treating conditions such as depression, chronic stress, muscle spasms, migraines or headaches, and chronic pain.
Happy Flower Friday💚
