Apollo 11 is a Sativa dominant hybrid strain with a THC content of 18 percent and a high calyx- to leaf-ratio that matures in seven weeks. Originating in the Netherlands, Apollo 11 is a cross of Cinderella 99, Jack Herer, Shiva Skunk and Jack Herer F2, with a typical female plant producing one to two pounds of buds.

Apollo 11 Growth

Apollo 11 is easy to grow and has an abnormally short flowering phase for a Sativa plant. Apollo 11 is very forgiving of growing errors that can doom many strains and is an excellent Sativa for patients who do not have the time to grow plants requiring longer growth cycles. The strain is high-yielding, with the highest-producing females being short with heavy branches. The plants produce dense, bright green, resinous, lemon-scent buds with long pale hairs that feel sticky to the touch.

Apollo 11 Smoke

The smoke from Apollo 11 has a sweet citrusy flavor and produces a clear, thought-provoking, energetic and upbeat feeling, although there is typically some variation between individual plants. The taste from Apollo 11 is often described as sweet, suggestive mixture of lemon candy and cinnamon.

Apollo 11 Effects

Apollo 11 is a powerful medicine that creates a sense of uplifting euphoria. Unlike most of the sativa dominant strains, Apollo 11 has an intense effect on the body, producing a deep relaxation along with an overall gratified feeling.

Apollo 11 Side Effects 

Apollo 11 tends to produce mild to sometimes severe dry mouth. The strong relaxation effect does not make it a good choice for daytime use when it is important to be awake and attentive.

Apollo 11 Medical Uses

Apollo 11 is highly effective for anxiety, insomnia, tension, stress-related illnesses and upset stomach. A suitable choice for minor to moderate discomfort, including headaches, Apollo 11 is not strong enough for acute pain. Those with appetite problems do very well with Apollo 11 as it produces an increase in appetite for almost all patients. Patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and other seizure-related diseases may also benefit from Apollo 11.

Apollo 11 Conclusion

Overall, Apollo 11 is a potent strain ideal for reducing anxiety and dealing with mild pain, but should not be used for more severe conditions. Apollo 11 should only be used during the daytime when mental focus in not a priority as it tends to make the patient lethargic and dull mentally awareness.
