Overview of King Louis XIII

King Louis XIII is an indica dominant hybrid that first sprouted up in Southern California. As soon as it is exposed to the air, its pungent aroma can be smelled from across the room. The fragrance is piney and earthy, with a hint of spice, skunk, and diesel. Due to this stickiness and the tell-tale pungent aroma, it is highly recommended that users wash their hands very well after handling this fragrant flower.

Along with a tasty, woody smoke that reflects its aroma and features a crisp echo of citrus, this strain comes with a powerful relaxation and body high.

Similar to the way that the name King Louis XIII rings a bell in the back of your mind, but you canĂ¢??t really place why he was important in world history, many marijuana dispensaries may know the strain but donĂ¢??t often stock it.
