One of the most successful and prominent Cannabis Strains of all time, the Chronic Strain is known to its unique taste and satisfying effects. It is highly regarded due to its genetic structure and benefits.
Apart from that, this Cannabis Strain has one of the highest THC Content among all Marijuana Strains that ever existed in our world. Some people are so surprised that this sweet and almost candy-like strain may give them one of the strongest kicks that they experienced in their entire Marijuana consumption. Even you may underestimate this strain due to its taste, but the best is yet to come, right after its effects kick in.
The Chronic One
When we hear the word chronic, it makes us think something complicated, a fatal, terminal or even worst among everything. However, the people behind naming this strain does not convey a message of fear when they chose the word chronic.
For these people, the term chronic is a catchy word that will immediately earn anyone’s attention who will hear this mere word. Even I got curious about how this strain works for the users since the parent strains of this hybrid plant are all strong.
Apart from it, the veteran smokers do their early pot sessions with some songs suitable for Marijuana consumption, such as the rapper Dr. Dre’s albums in the 90s. With this, the term has been long associated with the weeds that contain an excellent quality of chemicals.
Because of this, the Chronic Strain is highly considered as one of the legendary weeds that exist until the present times.
The Chronic Strain came from cross-breeding of Northern Lights, AK-47 and Skunk #1. These plants are known to have a relatively high THC volume so you may expect that their offspring will contain the same or higher THC volume than them.
Its genetic composition is a perfect balance of Indica and Sativa strains with a 1:1 ratio (50%/50%). This chronic plant has a musty shade of olive-green leaves highlighted with vibrant red pistils while its buds contain a typical Indica-structure of enclosed leaves.
The small to medium flowers are carefully set in popcorn-like formations and are visibly coated with translucent amber trichomes, a proof of high THC concentration deep-seated inside this plant.
This hybrid plant can grow up to 6 feet tall with a flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks or 56 to 63 days. Apart from it, the plant is perfect for semi-humid climates.
As the genetic history would interpret, its THC content ranges from a whopping 13% to 23% while its CBD content may go lesser than a single percent.
When burned, its smoke is a sure cough-inducing and harsh one must be cautious with it. Also, this strain is not for discreet smoking due to the exploding pungent and skunky smell it has. Because of this, smoking a Chronic one is not advisable to the people who practice discreet smoking.
Now, as you check on the aroma of the Chronic Strain, one will notice that it smells like a skunk- pungent and skunky with notes of herbal mint. However, the twist happens when the honey and flowery fragrances pop in the air. And when you taste it? The strain tastes earthy to pungent one and transforms into a flowery and sweet honey one.
As you exhale the smoke of a strain, you may notice its flowery taste with kicks of pepper, making this taste look a classical one and became a standard in producing quality strains of all times.
Its much-awaited effects
As the strong volume of pungent to earthy and skunky smoke takes in and turns into a sweet and honey-filled one, this strain transforms a simple user from being too stressed into a remarkably relaxed but not couch-locked human. The high THC Content it has effectively helped the patients and recreational users to relax well in any time of the day.
The strain acts as a supplement for them to meditate with life’s situations and think properly for their future. Some said that they feel euphoric and uplifted, to the point that they felt inspired to keep on going, especially those who suffer extensive emotional problems. It seems that they are happy in doing anything after consuming the Chronic Strain.
With this chemical reaction to our body, this strain is good for people with the following Medical Conditions:
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Body Pains
- Women’s Health
Usually, people working with high-pressured Industries and people suffering from severe seizure-related medical conditions are the avid fans of this strain. With the new strain’s production, people may not need strong medicine to sedate and relax their systems which can harm their body in the long run.
On the other hand, the much THC volume it has can give the users a lot of side effects, such as the following:
- Drying Eyes and Mouth
How the World Reacts
The Chronic Strain is widely regarded by world groups due to its amazing benefits and effects. This strain came from a breeding Company in the Netherlands and won different awards of excellence for being one of the Best Strain of High Times Cannabis in 1994 and earned other recognitions in the succeeding years.
With the recognition that this strain and the maker of it has earned, the global Cannabis users became more eager to know and use this plant and consume this in the long-time. Most of its users are from the Netherlands, in Amsterdam, where it exactly came from.
Though it earned a warm and wide appreciation, this plant struggles to find a stable part in the global competition due to the laws that hinder every Cannabis user to spread and share the practice of Marijuana usage in the rest of the regions of our modern world.
In the end, the Chronic Strain hails as one of the greatest, if not the best alone, among the strains all over the globe and across the decades.
