Apollo 13 provides a rare opportunity for users. Bred by Brothers Grimm, this sativa-dominant strain will leave you wondering if gravity still exists. It is said that only 500 seeds were created from the original plant, so if you get your hands on the original seeds, don't let them go. This strain, a cross between Genius and Princess 75, lends itself to creativity while providing an uplifting feeling and the sense of energy and euphoria.

The herbal flavor leaves a tea and skunk aftertaste followed by a pungent earthy, spicy scent with a citrus fruity undertone.

Little is known about Princess 75, but it's said to have been the result of combining Princess and Princess 50. Although this strain's information is scare, if it helped create Apollo 13, it did a good job.
Growing Apollo 13
Apollo 13 produces a heavy yield and flowers after 7 to 8 weeks. It's best grown indoors, providing 12 to 16 ounces per square meter with a Sea of Green setup. It can be grown outdoors, providing 16 ounces or more per plant. But climate needs to be near perfect. Breeders have since created their own versions of the plant. It's recommended for new growers and yields large, sticky buds.
