Four Way Strain Genetics
Four-Way was created in the 1980’s as a stepping stone for further cannabis cross-breeding. Selected for its stable genetics and best traits, Four-Way promises large amounts of trichomes, massive and dense buds, fast and resilient growing characteristics, and great flavour and effects. Combining three Middle Eastern landrace strains (Afghani, Indian, and Pakistani) and the classic Skunk #1, Sensi Seeds created a template that would be the starting point of numerous new and exciting hybrid strains.
Four Way Strain Terpene Profile
One of Four-Way’s unique combination of terpenes makes up for an overpowering earthy, spicy, peppery and hash-like aroma, lifted by the sweet smell of Skunk #1.
Four Way Strain Effects
Skunk #1 gives Four-Way its fast-acting and potent kick, while the three landrace indicas produce a warm body buzz and the sensation of being wrapped in a heavy blanket, relaxing your body and quieting your mind.
Medical Benefits Four Way Strain
Four-Way in itself wasn’t created specifically as a medicinal strain, but its characteristics were partly selected with medicinal use in mind. Seeing as its lineage includes three indicas it has a fairly high CBD level of 2%. Four-Way can be used to alleviate symptoms stemming from mood disorders like depression or PTSD, and with physical or inflammatory ailments like Crohn’s Disease, glaucoma, arthritis, asthma, along with general pains and aches.
How to Grow Four Way Strain
Four-Way has all the best traits you would want as a grower. The strain grows quickly, is very resilient, adapts well to any cultivation method or plant training and produces large quantities of sticky, dense buds. All in all Four-Way is an excellent strain for beginners.
However, to make the best of its original purpose, as a template for crossbreeding, you have to know what you’re doing. This gives credence to the saying: “Easy to learn, hard to master”.
