Permafrost is an excellent strain to smoke when it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The sativa-hybrid gets its name for its noticeable frosty appearance that is palpable enough to make Frosty the Snowman jealous. Additionally, the strain's pine-fresh scent is reminiscent of snow-covered trees - and the bud's trichome-covered crystals.

Permafrost stands out on its own with its earthy and spicy flavor profile. Regular users commonly note hints of pine. On average, Permafrost varieties possess THC content of around 15 percent.

Negative Effects of Permafrost
Permafrost's adverse effects include the routine list of mildly cumbersome consequences akin to most marijuana strains. Users regularly report dry mouth and, less occasionally, dry eyes. There are rare incidents of headaches, dizziness, and paranoia.
Lineage of Permafrost
Cannabis-focused websites and industry experts attribute Rogue Buds to the strain's initial creation and cultivation. Permafrost's genetics are also up for debate. Many attribute the strain's lineage to White Widow and Trainwreck. Noting White Widow's crystallized coverage and signature energetic buzz, it makes sense for theorists to connect the two strains.
Trainwreck's powerful cerebral stone and a thin coating of resin is also a logical deduction for the strain's father. Others involved in the cannabis industry consider Kali Mist and Trinity Snow as viable potential parents. Whatever Permafrost's true genetic origins are, the strain likely descended from similarly coated and energizing buds.
Permafrost is an easier strain to grow than most. However, it does have a relatively long flowering time. This strain is suited for both indoor and outdoor environments. Permafrost is a useful strain for beginning growers to try out. Its yield is not the most impressive, but its buds smell phenomenal and glisten in the light. Permafrost is a fun strain to show off in the grow!
