The THC content falls somewhere around 20% making it higher than average and leaning towards a long-lasting potency. It is believed to be 50-50, but most consider it an indica-dominant strain because of the heavy body buzz and cerebral stoney combo. These super-dense medicinal buds are extremely leafy and lime green in color. They are covered in red hairs and tiny white trichomes, giving a nice contrast from the dark green leaves. The flavors and aromas are not anything to write home about but are pleasant enough: earthy and woody with a nice aftertaste.
