This is classified as easy-to-grow marijuana strain and is known for its stereotypical body effects that are typical to indica strains. These effects will last up to 2 to 3 hours. Traditionally, this particular strain will be harvested for giving out higher counts of hashish. The plant will be sturdy with light colored nugs and resinous trichomes. The buds are covered with numerous red or dark orange colored hairs.

It’s a good nighttime strain with strong indica genetics (sativa/indica ratio of 20:80). THC levels are strong, passing 28% in some tests. There isn’t much CBD in this strain, though, less than 1%, so it should be used to treat conditions that respond to CBD, such as epilepsy. Instead, it’s an effective treatment for depression, chronic pain, nausea, insomnia, and anxiety. The high is centered almost entirely on the body, with a calming euphoric sensation and a happy mood. The effect can be sleep-inducing and often comes with strong hunger.
