Euforia Terpene Profile
Although Euforia has Skunk genetics, it has less of a funk than one would expect. It has a musky and particularly fresh fruity aroma, with slight hints of sour undertones accompanied by a woodsy and fruity taste that continues on the exhale. Some cannaisseurs have even reported getting a whiff of cinnamon on the exhale.
Medical Benefits Euforia
Both THC and CBD have been found to have pain-relieving qualities that are thought to amplify when the cannabinoids work together. CBD is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties. These effects combined may be useful for arthritis, joint pain, fibromyalgia, and headaches and migraines.
How to Grow Euforia
This strain is surprisingly easy to cultivate. With such strong sativa genetics, it thrives in dry and sunny outdoor climates and produces especially hardy plants resistant to standard diseases and mildews and adverse conditions like temperature variations. Plants can have a very long flowering time of about 9 weeks, however, Euforia offers beautifully sea green leaves that shoot through its elongated flower bundles. It also has a good calyx to leaf ratio, which makes trimming a simple task for growers during the cultivation process. With a trichome coating so thick, this strain gives buds a silvery-white sheen which may require a quality grinder, so don’t cheat yourself out of a good grind and time.
