Snowcap is an excellent sativa with a pleasant lemony scent.  Smoking provides a good head high without any couch lock.  Plenty of energy makes this strain perfect for going out to a party or staying in to study. Smoking before a movie is nice, but an extreme case of the giggles may ensue. Morning and afternoon tokers should plan to keep some reserve buds on hand, as Snowcap does not produce an unusually long buzz. Buds of Snowcap are light green with plenty of trichomes and peach-colored pistils.

Overview of Snowcap

Snowcap is in the middle to high range of potency, with THC levels starting at 13 percent and reaching as high as 24 percent in some cases. The strain also contains up to 4% CBD, which sets it apart from the typical sativa-dominant hybrid and boosts its reputation among the medical marijuana community. It is not known to cause couchlock or excessive drowsiness for most users. Coupled with the fact that the high is relaxed but not overwhelming, Snowcap makes for a perfect wake-and-bake or daytime strain.

The strain's aroma is fruity, containing hints of lemon and citrus along with mint. Its flavor profile is similar, combining sweet and fruity elements with a bit of menthol and pine. In some instances, tokers report nutmeg and vanilla flavors.

The nugs are dense, and an ounce of Snowcap could look like a lot less because it is so compacted. Smokers will experience a slow burn with Snowcap nugs, which makes it an ideal strain to puff on gradually throughout the day.

Positive Effects of Snowcap

In addition to its uplifting, euphoric effect, Snowcap produces a creative and energetic high. It will cause fits of laughter, but for the most part users will feel a relaxed head high that wears off relatively quickly.

Negative Effects of Snowcap

Fortunately, Snowcap is not known to cause significant adverse side effects. Some smokers report dry eyes and dry mouth, but anxiety and paranoia are rare with this strain.

Lineage of Snowcap

Snowcap has a unique and somewhat unknown lineage. However, the consensus is it is a cross between Humboldt Snow x Unknown Haze.

Growing Snowcap

This strain is not the most difficult to grow. Snowcap plants grow tall, with a flowering time of around nine weeks for indoor cultivation and a mid to late October harvest outdoors. When grown indoors, Snowcap can produce two pounds per 1,000-watt light.

Where to Find Snowcap

Snowcap is popular in several areas of Canada including Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and Toronto. Smokers in Colorado, Oregon, and California also enjoy a taste of Snowcap from time to time.
