Columbian Sativa x Mexican Sativa x Ruderalis, you’re going to be flying very high with Mexican Airlines, a potent, mainly sativa strain from the kings of autoflowering over at FastBuds. With 19% THC and 1% CBD this is a heady high that has some nice stress relieving qualities too.
Heritage / Genetics: A wonderfully potent and flavorsome mixture of original Mexican x Columbian sativa landraces, mixed with Ruderalis to produce a strong and pleasant head-high, that also grows well. Unusual for an autoflower in that she’s a sativa-dominant variety and can produce a high yield. Sativa lovers will be happy indeed – the name speaks very much for itself; you will be up in the clouds with Mexican Airlines.
Flavor and Aroma: There’s a smorgasbord of flavors here, Mexican Airlines, is a delight for those who love a varied taste profile to their cannabis. A spicy strain, with clear sour and ginger tastes to begin with, followed up by a lovely citrus chaser. The aroma is pleasant, light and hazey.
Effect: Hazey and heady, Mexican Airlines is definitely one for creative types, looking to get inspired and focussed, and to get in the zone. The THC level (19%) means this is probably a strain for pretty experienced cannasseurs, the high is intense and euphoric, sometimes bordering on the psychedelic. You will not have a care in the world after having a toke on this, and are likely to find yourself giggling like crazy before drifting off to new and delightful heights: dreamy as lying on the beach at Tijuana.
Medical: Ongoing research has found that in higher doses THC may help with Glaucoma, by reducing pressure in the eye. THC and CBD have also been found to have pain-relieving qualities that are thought to amplify when the cannabinoids work together. Meanwhile, CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Considering this, this high THC, moderate CBD strain may be somewhat useful for relieving pain and inflammation often experienced with joint pain, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
Grow characteristics: These plants grow quick, strong and sturdy. The leaves are long, slim and light green; the tops, dense, sticky and covered with trichomes. When flowering she will have a potent aroma, so make sure you have a good carbon filter. As an autoflowering variety, this is a particularly productive and easy-going one, a great strain for beginner gardeners: just watch out for mildew and too much humidity as flowering ends. She will be done in 8-9 weeks but if you can leave her slightly longer for a more potent result.
