Lavender is an all-around excellent indica dominant strain offering a great experience to the novice smoker as well as the medicinal user! It also makes for great hash.
Heritage & Genetics: Soma Seeds developed Lavender back in 2005. It’s a mix of some legendary strains from all around the world. These include Super Skunk and Big Skunk Korean. Add to this some landrace strains such as Afghani, and Hawaiian Sativa and the results are amazing – a reliable indica with therapeutic sedative effects.
Flavor & Aroma: If you are into spicy and exotic strains, then Lavender truly if for you. This strain brings the best of cannabis scents and tastes together. The spicy Afghan traits of Lavender mix perfectly with the Skunk brought by its Korean sister. Add to this the sweet taste of Hawaiian, and you’ve got tasty transnational cannabis experience in your joint.
Effect: Lavender produces a heavy-hitting body-stoned effect. It has sedative properties, so beware of the time of day you to consume it. It’s easy to underestimate this strain and ending up couch-locked. But, if you’re looking for an after-work joint to help you eat and call it an early night, then one joint should do the trick.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite 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.
Grow characteristics: Lavender grows to a tall height, despite its predominantly indica heritage. If you are an indoor cultivator and this turns out to be a problem, don’t worry; with slight alterations to the vegetation cycle, you will be able to have more control over the height. Experienced growers shouldn’t have much trouble if they decide to multi-branch this strain. It has a short grow-cycle of about 63-70 days, so you won’t have to wait long before tasting the flower. Its strong Afghani traits scream out to make some Hash or extracts out of this.
