Not only is this a very potent strain, with some pheno-types producing an astonishing 30% THC, but it is also a pretty good yield too. Indoors plants will produce between 500 - 550 gr/m2 in a 9-week flowering period if given 600 watts of lighting. Outdoors cultivation is restricted to warm climates meaning that a Mediterranean climate is ideal. In this environment, production will be approximately 550 - 600 gr/plant with northern hemisphere harvests taking place in the middle of October. The leaves of this cannabis strain are attractive lime green and its buds dense and large. Such is the resin production of this plant that even the larger leaves will sparkle with it.
The taste has a foundation of sweet earthiness which is enlivened by notes of pine and lemon from the terpenes pinene and limonene. Although some pheno-types can reach 30% THC the average for the "lesser" phenos is around 26%, still pretty incredible for any other strain. CBD levels are low at less than 1% and this helps to give this weed an immensely potent effect which is deeply relaxing but which also offers an uplifting, cerebral and happy quality that makes it such a special weed strain. This really is something that even the most jaded cannasseur will sit up and take notice of.
