The God Bud strain is generally a small plant, ideal for small spaces. It prefers cooler climates and grows no more than three feet tall, making it great for stealth grows. The taste is mainly a sweet flavor along with pungent and earthy undertones. One described it as having a “great smell and wonderful smoke” (leafly.com review). According to leafly.com, the God Bud strain ranks the highest compared to other strains in many areas. For one, it was ranked very high for euphoria, happiness, relaxation, and sleep.

In fact, a majority of the strains listed on leafly.com don’t even come close to the euphoria levels this strain has. Pain and stress relief were ranked the highest for medical benefits. Dry eyes and dry mouth were the only two common, unpleasant effects from this strain. However, this strain is perfect for the recreational user, as it has intense effects in this area.

Overall, the effects are “. . . clear minded and super relaxed” (leafly.com). However, this clear, relaxing high hits with an intense wave of euphoria, unlike any other strain. One person on a review of the strain said that they “instantly felt euphoria” on the first hit (leafly.com). This person said that the strain worked wonders in fighting his/her severe depression.

The God Bud strain doesn’t have an intense, indica-like body high, which is convenient if things need to get done. However, it does provide a real nice relaxing effect to the user, making it ideal to relieve stress from a long work day. This is the perfect strain for a “rainy day” since it will turn any day into a good one. Also, the strain was ranked fairly high under the sleepiness category, so it would most likely be great before bedtime or insomnia. Another review said it has a nice come-down, meaning no burnt-out, lethargic feelings. Anyone doing a stealth grow or growing in a small place can easily rely on this strain. Those who live in colder climates won’t have a problem with growing this strain. It yields a generous amount of high quality medicine if grown right.

Medical marijuana has long been known to be a safe and effective treatment for the symptoms of cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, pain, glaucoma, epilepsy, and other conditions. However, there are many medical marijuana strains to chose from and the choice can be daunting. Pink Kush is one of the most beloved strains because of its many benefits and long lasting effectiveness.

Pink Kush is a hybrid strain that is known and named after its pink color and its smooth and sweet taste. Its texture is dense and resinous while it looks like it is coated in sugar crystal and reportedly smells like flowers and fresh vanilla. Not surprisingly, Pink Kush also has a very sweet taste that is compared by many to southern sweet tea. It is grown in a dry climate in an average of 60 days. The plant grows to an average height but has a high yield for its kind.

While its looks may make it come across like a dainty strain, Pink Kush is extremely potent, with a high THC level. Most users experience an active stone for the first 15 minutes, which makes them euphoric and happy, and then transition to a more relaxed, sleepy and or hungry state. The only downsides that some users experience from Pink Kush are a dry mouth and dry eyes.

Besides the taste, smell and high, Pink Kush is most beloved for its ability to mend serious medical complaints in patients. In terms of healing, Pink Kush is most effective in treating pain, muscle spasms, insomnia, anxiety, lack of appetite, nausea, depression, low sex drive, and epilepsy. Most users feel effects immediately, especially if they are suffering from mental problems like anxiety, depression and stress. The benefits are also useful for patients who suffer from epilepsy, as Pink Kush can immediately reduce the severity of seizures.

While the effects of Pink Kush are different for everyone, most reviewers agree that it is one of the smoothest and most effective strains on the market. It can treat almost any ailment, tastes good and can even easily be grown. What more could a customer ask for?

Space Bomb is a sativa-dominant (3/5ths) crossbreed of a strain, and is the product of grower TGA Seeds’ intermingling of Tiny Bomb and Space Queen. Part of the reasoning behind such a parentage was so that users could enjoy Tiny Bomb, a clone-only strain, as a seed. This strain is noted for a rich potpourri wood, lemony citrus, earthiness, and even a medicinal odor and its buds are laden with hairs and trichome-rich crystals when fully grown.

Medicinal Uses of Space Bomb

Space Bomb is an excellent means of treating stress levels or depression, although it has a much less potent effect upon individuals suffering from fatigue, lacking hunger, or pain. Space Bomb can be prescribed for patients dealing with anxiety, AD(H)D, cancer, migraine headaches, or premenstrual syndrome.

General Effects of Space Bomb

This strain is a wonderful solution for those looking to attain a sense of blissful tranquility, with only slightly less potent effects upon the user’s sense of joy and left-brain thought. Users of just about any tolerance level should have no problem acquiring the benefits of Space Bomb; benefits that are great for the user interested in taking a break or trying to come up with some esoteric solutions.

Drawbacks and Negatives of Space Bomb

The most likely negatives from partaking of Space Bomb would be dryness of the eyes, mouth, and paranoid delusions, in order of most to least likely to occur. It’s worth noting that some rare instances of dizziness have overtaken users. This strain’s potency renders its consumption a bad idea if taken in a decent capacity prior to driving around, although the quickness that it sets in may take care of that situation for you; while not necessary a “couch-locker,” Space Bombdefinitely induces a state of peaceful indolence.

Other Information Regarding Space Bomb

Although introduced to the market back in 2006, Space Bomb made it into the Top 10 of High Times’ Cannabis Cup for 2009. Interested parties considering the venture of growing some Space Bomb will be pleased to know that this particular strain of cannabis reaches its flowering stage over the relatively quick time period of 49 to 56 days.

Medicine Man is a three-way hybrid between Brazilian Sativa, South Indian, and Afghani, with a high that falls in between a sativa and an indica. The strain is often confused as a close cousin to White Rhino. The very unique flowers of Medicine Man itself have a medium-toned green color with hints of purple. Unique yellow and red hairs protrude from the calyxes of the bud. One review even noted that the strain is one of ” . . . the most visually appealing strains” to look at (leafly.com). The flavors of this flower is described as being mostly “earthy” with a medium, sweet, flowery taste. High levels of both THC and CBD are found in this particular specimen. A very pleasant, mellow aroma is noticed upon smelling this herb.

Medicine Man Effects
Unlike most hybrid strains that provide a couch-lock effect, Medicine Man provides “a very clean, functional high with an [interesting] indica type” high (leafly.com). However, the indica aspect of the high isn’t the typical, narcotic-like high. It’s more of a relaxing type of body-high, if that makes any sense. In other words, this strain is perfect for those who need to get things done yet want a relaxing high. The Medicine Man strain was rated the highest for helping relieve pain and stress. However, it’s also good at reliving headaches, fatigue, and inflammation. The only real downside to this strain is dry mouth, but that can be fixed with plenty of water. Paranoia is not a problem with this strain.
Growing Conditions

Growing this strain is pretty easy but when done right it produces high-quality, potent flower. This specimen performs well both indoors and outdoors. The flowering period is relatively short, ranging from 56 to 65 days, due to its indica genetics. This strain produces a generous yield with high-quality, exotic medicine. The buds this plant creates are solid, resinous, dense buds. Although it performs great indoors and out, the plant will produce more resin and cannabanoids if grown outside, due to the strong, natural sunlight. Overall, Medicine Man is a perfect plant for both beginner and experienced growers and will produce buds with an enjoyable, exotic high.

You may be a medical marijuana participant looking for a good strain to help your current condition. Well, if you have come across Snoop Dream strain and wondering what the story behind this strain and want to have a review on it then you have come to the right place.

How it Came Into Existence

The famous rapper Snoop Dog, who is has a name in the cannabis community, wanted to see if two of his favorite strains could be combined. Snoop Dog’s favorite types of cannabis happened to be Master Kush and Blue Dream. Thus, the name of Snoops Dream was invented after these two strains were mixed to become the strong indica hybrid.

Buds, Taste, Strength

Snoop’s Dream looks a lot like Blue Dream and has an abundance of orange hairs throughout the bud itself. The bud has a sweet fruity pine aroma to it and has a lot of characteristics of the Blue Dream itself. When you pull a hit of the Snoop Dream you instantly taste a sweet taste of blueberry and after exhaling your hit it leaves the aftertaste of pine in the back of your throat. You will be able to pull a decent amount of smoke because of it goes down smooth because of its fruity taste. You can tell that this is an Indica whereas you feel the effects of the cannabis immediately with a heavy high. The Master Kush is felt within this strain of this hybrid version of Snoop Dream, which is a defiantly a plus for Indica lovers. When they developed the Snoop Dream strain, they were concentrating on getting a high concentration of THC, which was successfully achieved at 18 plus percent.

Other Notable Qualities

With other Indica strains, you might occasionally run into the headache effect while the medicine is wearing off. Snoop Dream doesn’t have this effect that was pleasantly wonderful. Snoop Dream also doesn’t have the effect of Master Kush where you feel so tired you can’t even move. The Snoop Dream strain will allow you to function accordingly while feeling good at the same.

Final Thoughts

I would recommend Snoop Dream to anyone who likes the effects of a good indica strain without the mood swing and headache of coming off some other strains of indica. Snoop Dream gives a wonderful taste with easy to take hits for any user.

Tangie is a marijuana strain that was originally developed in Amsterdam. It’s rapidly gaining popularity around the world and for good reason. Tangie produces a clear, euphoric high that can last for several hours.

Notable Features

What people find most notable about Tangie is the citrus flavor and aroma that you experience when you smoke it. Tangie is short for tangerine and the strain is a hybrid of a couple other citrus-derived strains. It has a nice fruity aroma and scent, which I enjoyed it. I have friends that find tangie too sweet for them, but for me it’s perfect. I like the nice, pungent smell that comes from tangie and I feel that it enhances my high.
Effects of Tangie Strain

For me, tangie produced a mild high that did not last too long. It’s mildly euphoric as well but it’s a very relaxing smoke. I think it a good choice for relaxing after a long day at work or while doing chores at home. It definitely gave me a tranquil feeling but it didn’t make me feel numb at all. I was able to remain focused and relaxed at the same time which is a nice feeling. It affects me more mentally that physically. I didn’t have the same lethargic feeling that I sometimes get from intense highs.

Although smoking it just once will only give you a short high, I did experiment and found that smoking it several times will allow the strain to build up and the high will last several hours. Even though the high lasts several hours, it’s still the same relaxing and calming sensation throughout.

I think of tangie as a great strain for the daytime or weekend. I’ve found it tough to find a straint hat allows me to relax but remained focus and accomplish things I need to do during the day. Tangie allows me to do that. I’ve even found it alleviates my headaches. There are some drawbacks to tangie. For instance, I found the smoke from this strain to be really thick and dense which, depending upon where you are smoking, can be really annoying.
