The legendary seed bank Sensi Seeds is known for producing quality flower with hard-hitting highs. Mr. Nice, named for the infamous marijuana smuggler Howard Marks, references Mark's' post-penitentiary memoir, Mr. Nice. Like the mellow man himself, the Mr. Nice strain is an indica-dominant hybrid cultivated from two classic Sensi Seeds varieties. The strain's genial name foreshadows its pleasantly sweet smell and powerful yet mellow high.
Overview of Mr. Nice
This indica dominant plant has exceptionally dense buds with a sweet smell. Mr. Nice will creep up and provide you with a strong, mellow high. Sensi Seeds claims that Mr. Nice's "double Afghani" scent is enticing enough to make your mouth water. The strain's dense bud clusters should produce sticky nuggets with a rich yet spicy tang of resin.
Mr. Nice buds should have a darker coloring and underlying muskiness, typical of indica varieties. This strain is known for packing a punch and has a high THC content of around 17 percent to 20 percent THC. Mr. Nice is an excellent nighttime strain and is an ideal way to end a day.
Potential Positive Effects of Mr. Nice
When smoking Mr. Nice, smokers report a powerful sense of euphoria, enough of this strain uplifts their high into new levels. The high can end with a deep sense of relaxation and fatigue.

Commonly, Mr. Nice users report dry eyes and dry mouth. Less frequently reported adverse effects can include dizziness, headaches, and paranoia.
The Lineage of Mr. Nice
Mr. Nice was limitedly released in the 1980's but has since returned to the revitalized cannabis market. Inspired by the throwback love of the 2010s, Sensi Seeds has brought the strain back. Mr. Nice is a combination of the G-13 strain and the popular Hash Plant. G-13 is another potent indica strain with high resin quality and THC production.
G-13 quickly achieved the status of a living cannabis legend and breeders jumped on the chance to capture G-13's spirit. The Dutch seed bank created the Hash Plant breeding program to capture the magic of original G-13 strains. A perfect match between a G-13 and Hash Plant strain was found and relaunched in 1999 under the Mr. Nice moniker.
Growing Mr. Nice
Mr. Nice is a suitable seed for growers experienced with harvesting larger yields and more pungent crops. Many have tried and failed to cultivate this unique strain. Those with the grower's "green thumb" can nurture Mr. Nice seeds to yield two to four ounces per plant. Plants, however, do require more intense care and consideration.
