Desfrán was originally a three-way cross of Mexican Oaxaca x Columbian Punto Rojo x Meao Thai. Brought to Europe a few years back by Dutch Passion’s Argentinian Master Grower, Alberto, this South American beauty was refined to become the multi-award winning strain she is today. Now a cross of Destroyer with Destroyer, the quality of her pure sativa genetics is immediately obvious thanks to her wide range of flavors and her potency.
When harvested early, the high from Desfrán is very cerebral, as you would expect from any strong sativa. Taken in larger doses, she will be dreamy and psychedelic, great if you and your friends are feeling sociable and philosophical; possibly not so great if you’re of a nervous disposition.
Desfrán Terpene Profile
A very sweet and fruity aroma will greet you the moment you meet Desfrán. Fruits like apple and pear come through strongest and are perceptible in the taste too. You may also get hints of grape or melon, with a caramel-like aftertaste that is soft on the palette. After a late harvest, Desfrán’s fruity taste will be even sweeter.
Medical Benefits Desfrán
Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite, reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
How to Grow Desfrán
Desfrán, from Dutch Passion, is a relatively easy going strain to grow. She won’t need much nutrition during vegetation and will grow strongly both indoor, outdoor and in a greenhouse. She’ll also take to most mediums but does particularly well in soil where her roots can spread out. As a pure sativa, she can grow very tall with long branches that are widely spaced boasting long, elegant colas. She can stretch out during flowering to great heights. She’s quite pungent and will smell sweet and aromatic indoors. Full of resin, she works well in a SOG or SCROG grow and will produce dense, compact and frosty flowers.
