If you know what LSD is, you can probably make a pretty good guess what this LSD strain is all about. As a hybrid that’s slightly more on the Indica side, this cannabis strain produces incredible head highs that can quickly slide into psychedelic experiences. All this is complemented by a delayed, although equally strong, body buzz.
LSD can be pretty potent. On average, buds of this strain have right around 16% THC. But they’ve been known to climb as high as 24%. That’s enough THC to send you tripping—and that’s exactly what this strain delivers.
We’ve already been talking about the main effects of this strain, and for a good reason. This is where LSD stands out.
A few puffs in and you’ll quickly start noticing a powerful head high. Some people find themselves feeling mentally cloudy. Others end up feeling invigorated, creative, giggly, and social. Still, others discover new realms while floating somewhere around the stratosphere.
While the incredible cerebral highs are the real prize here, don’t forget that LSD has slightly more Indica genetics than anything else. And that’ll produce a noticeable body buzz. For most users, this will set in a little later in your sesh, maybe even as your head high starts to dissipate.
Scent & Flavor
LSD has an excellent, well-rounded scent and flavor profile. When you handle a nug of LSD, expect odors of earthiness mixed with a pleasant, sweet-smelling citrus scent. As you start smoking, you’ll taste smoke that is predominantly earthy in flavor, but those same citrusy undertones give it the right balance.
Some people experience dizziness or anxiety when smoking the LSD strain. And some people end up feeling a little bit paranoid as well.
Depending on how the cerebral aspects of this strain affect you, it could be a decent daytime option. But if you find yourself feeling too spacey or cloudy, it might be best to save it for evening use.
In any case, this can be a super fun strain to use in social settings. The trippy, psychedelic high can lead to some especially hilarious and unexpected conversations. And if you need a spark of creative inspiration, this might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Many medical marijuana patients have success using LSD to treat stress, depression, and certain mood disorders. Others find it useful for treating pain and insomnia.
LSD is an almost perfect 50/50 hybrid. It was created by breeders at Barneys Farm and brings together the best of Mazar-I-Sharif, an Indica originating in Afghanistan, and the classic hybrid Skunk #1.
LSD isn’t necessarily the easiest strain to grow. But with that said, it was bred to be disease resistant, which means that it usually does pretty well in a variety of settings.
You can grow this strain either indoors or outdoors. Expect flowers to start showing up somewhere around 9 to 10 weeks. Buds will be triangular and will often have a nice frosty coating of milky white trichomes.
