The flower has notes of berry, citrus, earth and pine flavoring. The high that users can enjoy is euphoric, energetic and uplifting. Your body is physically relaxed, while the brain remains active.

Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie was created when growers merged Strawberry Fritter with Georgia Pie. Caryophyllene is the dominant terpene found in Strawberry Pie, making it a great choice for patients struggling with inflammation. It is also used for anxiety and depression. The berry and earthy aroma is quite pleasant and while the THC levels are in the 26% range, the head high is pleasurable and easy to navigate. The flowering time ranges from 8 to 10 weeks, with a 400 to 550 gram per square foot/plant yield, making it a perfect choice for indoor and outdoor growers.

Quarter Pounder

This citrus-scented strain can be planted all year round if the region you reside in does not have any frost seasons to be concerned about. The cultivation period will range between 11 and 13 weeks, with generous yields for both indoor and outdoor growers. Harvesters can expect 3 to 5 ounces per plant outdoors and over 1 ounce per square foot indoors. It can endure a fair amount of stress and is a very tough plant, making it a great choice for novice growers. Its high THC content and heavyweight effects may not be the best selection for a novice smoker, though.

The THC content is not too high, making it a great choice for the average consumer. The flower has a fruity, sweet scent, much like its namesake. The high is mentally exhilarating, with a physical heaviness that is considered to be quite pleasant.

Chocolate Thai

Novice growers also benefit immensely from the shortened cultivation periods, as these plants are ready to harvest within 7 to 9 weeks. The THC content will range from 15% to 25%, making it a great choice for smokers who are looking for a more mellow and relaxed high. It has notes of sweetness, earthiness and pine, with a chocolate aftertaste. The resulting high is a happy and energetic one, often recommended to those who experience fatigue, anxiety or stress.
