Overview of Lavender

Lavender is an 80% indica, 20% sativa hybrid. Its somewhat even balance extends to its appearance, with Lavender buds being dense and rounded. Thanks to the Afghani genetics in its background, this strain produces a ton of resin. Even when nugs are quite dry, they still put up a good deal of resistance to being broken up and ground.

The forefront of Lavender‚??s aroma is, of course, lavender. Lavender has a generally sweet scent with floral undertones. Upon breaking open a bud, you‚??ll be greeted by a thick and spicy aroma, reminiscent of hash. The smoke from lavender is smooth and expansive, making for a relaxing smoking experience.

Lavender is one of the most variable strains out there, with some flower testing as low as 15%, and other batches maxing out at around 23% THC. CBD levels reach almost 1%, making Lavender good for therapeutic effects. Lavender is a multiple cannabis cup winner, having won four separate first place titles at the High Times 2005, Spannabis 2007, IC420 2010, and HighLife 2014 cups.

Lavender has barely any psychoactive effects, making it ideal for first-time users or those who tend toward paranoia.

Potential Medical Effects of Lavender
