Snow Leopard, from the mysterious breeder Bodhi Seeds, is one of the more unique seed strains out there, crossing the dual multinational genetics of Tigermelon and Snow Lotus, both of which have strong Haze and Afghani influences as well as Thai and Mexican elements. The majority of observed phenotypes are indica-dominant plants that produce numerous sticky colas and a rich tropical smell with woody undertones. Known for its “creeper” effect, Snow Leopard will eventually leave the user in a tranquil cloud, lost in deep thought and glued to their seat.
About Snow Leopard
As majestic as the animal itself, the Snow Leopard strain offers users a beautiful experience if they’re lucky enough to find it.

Who do you trust when it comes to Snow Leopard info? We’re not sure ourselves, as this rare strain makes it hard to know what’s what.

Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 55% Sativa / 45% Indica
THC: 17% – 21%
Snow Leopard is a slightly indica dominant hybrid (55% indica/45% sativa) strain created through a cross of the delicious Tigermelon X Snow Lotus strains. This extremely rare strain is difficult to find on the market although definitely has a gorgeous experience that is a wonder to behold. Snow Leopard buds have lumpy and super dense pepper-shaped light minty green nugs with dark amber hairs and a frosty thick coating of tiny milky white trichomes and visible droplets of sweet syrupy resin. The Snow Leopard flavor is much like its Tigermelon parent, with hints of sweet tropical fruit accented by woody pine and earthy hash. The aroma is very kushy with an almost harsh hash smell with a touch of tropical fruit that’s released as the nugs are burned. The high of Snow Leopard is just as amazing as its appearance, bringing about happy uplifted feelings that creep up on you and take hold without any mercy. It hits you first with a euphoric lift that leaves you in a state of pure bliss with tendencies to become spacey and introspective, falling victim to your own thoughts. As time goes by, you’ll slowly fade more and more before falling victim to a relaxing body buzz that locks you to your seat as your mind soars away. Because of these effects, Snow Leopard is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic pain, stress, depression, inflammation, and insomnia.

Snow Leopard is one of the most famous ‘creepers’ in the industry. Its effects do not begin until 15 to 20 minutes have passed after the first few puffs of its delicious smoke. Because of this, users should be cautious while using the Indica-leaning strain especially as it can be quite intense with its 21% to 30% THC.
In moderation, however, its effects are quite pleasant. It clears the mind with a rush of euphoria that leaves users feeling happy. Smiles return to one’s face while giggles escape the mouth over the most minute reasons. The uplifting buzz lasts for hours and readies users for the upcoming body buzz. After about an hour or two, a light pressure trickles down from the temples. It crashes into the muscles like waves tranquilizing the shore. Soothing and calming, it gently cradles users and blankets one in deep relaxation. Keeping it from overwhelming the body and causing a couch lock is the initial head high that continues to persist.
Snow Leopard has a delicious tropical fragrance that entices the nasal senses with the sweet aroma of ripe fruit. Accentuating it are notes of damp soilwith hints of refreshing but woody pine.
Snow Leopard’s smoke washes over the palate with the taste of earth and wood. It has refreshing overtones of pine with a tropical twist of berries and fruit. On the exhale, it leaves a sweet aftertaste that lingers in the mouth for hours.
Red eyes are a common side effect of smoking cannabis along with a cottonmouth as cannabinoids begin to interfere with saliva production. It is usually mild and barely noticeable but, if symptoms persist, users may down a few glasses of water to manage the dry spell.
Although rare, users may also experience dizziness and anxiety. It can sometimes develop into a subtle feeling of paranoia if left unattended. Apart from one’s disposition before the high, another factor that can green users out is the dosage. As such, one should pace the consumption of the bud.
