Has it been a while since you’ve had a completely restful night of sleep? If you’re looking for a strain that will give you a nice tingle and a bit of a happy buzz before putting you to bed, Hawaiian Skunk is it. Take a puff and let the Sandman do the rest.
Hawaiian Skunk is an indica-dominant plant that offers users low to moderate THC content ranging from 11% to 17%. Its lineage comes from Hawaiian Indica and Skunk #1, giving this bud a perfect blend of uplifting and mellowing highs. Small to medium light green buds give off a fruity aroma that is a bit musky, a bit citrusy, and nicely balanced with a sweet lemony flavor. Skunk and earth round out the bud’s essence while yellow and brown hairs give it a sunny glow.
The clear cerebral rush hits you right away, followed closely by a burst of energy and euphoria. This uplifted feeling can last for hours in some cases and is known to give users a glimpse into their more talkative side. While you dig into this part of the high your body will start to feel the tingle and possible dizziness this strain is known for. Users love its complex flavor, but be aware that too much of a good thing is often a bad thing. This strain has been known to cause paranoia if smoked to excess.
If you suffer from insomnia this bud is the relief you’ve been looking for. Because of its intensely sedative properties, users need only a few hits to get them to a deep sleep. The high may seem deceiving at first as it gives you a bit of an initial head rush, for a short time making users more social, however that is shortly replaced by an extremely heavy body and a foggy mind perfect for bedtime. This strain can be beneficial for users who suffer from nausea and headaches as well as some other mental health issues such as depression and stress, but it is not recommended for primary treatment.
This outdoor thriving plant is not a particularly difficult one to grow, though it is highly favorable to natural conditions and may cause you a little bit of a headache inside. You’ll have to watch for sudden growth spurts as this plant is notorious for non-movement periods with sudden jumps in height, making indoor growing tricky. Novice growers would be fine to follow standard techniques and will have no problem gleaning an average yield.
Uplifting, dizzying, complex, and sleep-inducing? Sign me up. Users love this strain for a multitude of reasons, but the consensus is the same: the flavors are great, the high is joyful, and it ends in a great night of deep unencumbered rest. Whether you use it medically or recreationally, Hawaiian Skunk provides a pretty solid combo.
