Lavender Strain Genetics
Soma Seeds developed Lavender back in 2005. It’s a mix of some legendary strains from all around the world. These include Super Skunk and Big Skunk Korean. Add to this some landrace strains such as Afghani, and Hawaiian Sativa and the results are amazing – a reliable indica with therapeutic sedative effects.
Lavender Strain Terpene Profile
If you are into spicy and exotic strains, then Lavender truly if for you. This strain brings the best of cannabis scents and tastes together. The spicy Afghan traits of Lavender mix perfectly with the Skunk brought by its Korean sister. Add to this the sweet taste of Hawaiian, and you’ve got a truly tasty transnational cannabis experience.
The peppery scent is a clear indication of the presence of caryophyllene while that sweet Hawaiian taste is generated by the presence of limonene, a terpene most commonly found in the sweeter, sativa-domina hybrids available today.
Lavender Strain Effects
With moderate to high THC levels (approaching 18%), Lavender can produce a heavy-hitting body-stoned effect. It has sedative properties, so beware of the time of day you to consume it. It’s easy to underestimate this strain and ending up couch-locked. But, if you’re looking for an after-work joint to help you eat and call it an early night, then one joint should do the trick.
Lavender Strain Medical Benefits
As a heavy indica strain, Lavender can be used to help reduce muscle tension and may also relieve arthritic stiffness. Patients have reported utilizing its anti-inflammation properties to help with back pain as well as swelling. Meanwhile, anyone having difficulty sleeping will be surprised at how useful Lavender‘s sedative effects can be.
How to Grow Lavender Strain
Available as both regular and feminised seeds, Lavender grows to a tall height, despite its predominantly indica heritage. If you are an indoor cultivator and this turns out to be a problem, don’t worry; with slight alterations to the vegetation cycle, you will be able to have more control over the height.
Experienced growers shouldn’t have much trouble if they decide to multi-branch this strain. It has a short grow-cycle of about 63-70 days, so you won’t have to wait long before tasting the flower. Its strong Afghani traits scream out to make some Hash or extracts out of this.
