Because of this, it makes for an impressive introductory strain that beginners can cultivate without much problems.
Outdoors, it will need protection against extreme weather such as snow or heavy rains. Both will not only stunt its growth, but it may also kill the plant overnight. A temporary enclosing is enough to protect it against harsh weather conditions, but one may also opt to plant it indoors.
Controllable environments allow aspiring growers to adjust factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity. For instance, during the flowering period, switching the lights out for higher-intensity models will encourage bud production. On the other hand, installing a proficient ventilation system will enhance air flow.
Medicinally, this strain is great for muscle spasms, chronic pain, headaches, and muscle tension. This is due in part to the sedative properties as well as its speculated CBD content.
