[Haze x White Widow][65% Sativa][18.2% THC & 3.5% CBD]
I’ve been meaning to write this review for awhile now, mostly because this strain is so absolutely wonderful for almost EVERYONE. Not only have boyfriend and I play wrestled for almost an hour like joyous little kids after medicating with this strain, but it can uplift any ornery mood while also giving some pain relief with very little to no lethargic side effects. After running into my favorite lemon faery at the farmer’s market this morning I decided today’s the day to finally review her favorite strain.
Moby Dick first got attention when it won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995 on behalf of creator Dinafem Seeds. It was originally bred specifically for medicinal use and is a fabulous option for anyone undergoing chemotherapy since it has epic appetite stimulation.
How Does It Hit Your Senses?
This cannabis strain can range from a more loose bound bud to an extremely dense one depending on grow cycles. I guarantee that your grow will harvest at least one behemoth show bud. The nuggets are vibrantly light yellow green with deep hints of dark forest green sprinkled delicately throughout. Trichomes glitter all over and nugs are straight up dank. It will always hit your nostrils abruptly with a lemony pine scent that is unmistakable. The aroma finishes with a deep sandalwood for a very rounded smell scape. Your first hit will entirely retain all of the brightness that assaulted your senses when you smelled the strain, inhalation and exhalation are equal in bright lemon piney goodness. The flavor sends a richness throughout your sinus passages that is warm and inviting.
It is an intermediate strain to cultivate that takes about 10 weeks to flower. It grows well both in and outdoors but I’d recommended indoors as it requires specific lighting wattage. Test your pH twice daily if possible to avoid anything too high as it greatly effects these genetics. If you pay attention and treat her right, Moby is an extremely high yielder.
What Is The Effect?
For me Moby Dick takes immediate effect directly to my mind, I can actually feel pressure in my brain release in the first couple of moments after medicating. After the initial mental lift the release moves through the face to release eye and facial muscle tension. Slowly in the next five minutes you will feel the body pain and muscular tension slowly drip out of your system. I want to be clear about the special nature of this strain, it not only tests with the best of them in THC content but it also has an extremely high CBD level in comparison to almost every other sativa dominant strain. This combination of mentally uplifting euphoria (THC) and anxiety & pain relief (CBD) creates the perfect storm of happiness and relaxation. The coming hour after medicating with Moby Dick you will feel, as lemon faery puts it, like a cartoon in the most welcome way. You feel playful, joyful and most of all pain free.
Effects will take hold for about 2-5 hours. You will most certainly feel the hunger, just have some healthy snacks made and a big bottle of water near by. Moby awakens the tummy and can help to relieve any nausea; making it a great choice for anyone in need of help with their appetite. I also recommend this to any patient who has issues with mood imbalance, depression, anxiety or heavy stress. And I especially recommend it to all my ladies out there during their moon. It will make you stop hating everything for no reason, crying when you see things for no reason and basically all those ridiculous signs of PMS.. except the ones that compel you to eat a whole package of oreos.. it just helps that one out. It is possible you could feel drowsy about 4-6 hours after medicating, test for the first time in a safe zone in the afternoon as to not upset your sleeping cycle.
Use to Aide With: Depression, Anxiety, Nausea, Day-Time Pain, Anorexia, secondary effects of Chemotherapy, PMS
