Information about Bedica:
What makes Bedica stand out is its high concentrations of the terpene, myrcene. This compound is responsible for a strain’s fragrance and, to some degree, its flavor. According to research by the Canadian LP Bedrocan, this type of terpene contributes to a strain’s calming and sedating effects. It is also what gives Bedica its therapeutic benefits.
In creating this hybrid, licensed producer Bedrocan took two potent strains treasured by the marijuana community. One is the indigenous Afghani, a plant that passes on its earthy aroma as well as its excellent resin production to its descendants. And the other is Herijuana, an inbred Indica with a strong spicy hash scent and THC levels that go beyond 25%.
Although Bedica did not inherit its parents’ THC values, it does have enough potency to induce a soothing, relaxing high that is perfect for kicking back on a lazy afternoon.

It takes a while for Bedica’s high to set in. But, when it does, it usually frees the mind of negativity. With a clear mind and a heightened sense of focus, users are able to spend more time on crafting new ways to finish their tasks. This mental clarity is also conducive to happiness.
Slowly, the Indica traits of Bedica begin to manifest. A gradual uplifting buzz ebbs down from the temples and envelops the body in total relaxation. Often, this complements the mental high until it lasts. From then on, the soothing effects cradle the user to sleep.
Once awake, users of Bedica are likely to feel the urge to eat. For this reason, it is best to prepare some food nearby. This is for convenience, especially as those who accidentally use a bit too much may find it difficult to move around.
Bedica has a calming aromatic smell due to its high amount of terpenes, or the odorous compounds in marijuana. Usually, this is marked by the unmistakable scent of damp earth matched with a strong pungent scent. When cut up and grinded, the buds release a spicy note.
Bedica has a very complex flavor profile. Though it is mainly herbal in taste, a savory chemical seems to overpower it once the strain is drawn in. When savored, the smoke reveals nutty undertones that are not at all evident in its fragrance. On the exhale, the bud is peppery and spicy although this usually turns skunky as soon as it washes the mouth.
Like all strains, Bedica has its own share of adverse reactions. Two of which are the usual cottonmouth and dry eyes, that are often ignored for their mildness. Besides these, the medical hybrid may also cause headaches and slight dizziness. However, these are usually either the result of overindulging in the strain or low tolerance to THC. Regardless, it is best to pace consumption of the strain.
The therapeutic benefits of a plant are not solely based on its CBD levels and psychoactive compounds. According to research gathered by Bedrocan, something as simple as the fragrance and flavor of a bud (in the form of terpenes) can have a significant impact on a person’s nerves.
While Bedica may not be high in CBD, its myrcene terpene levels are high enough to have a calming effect on users. Together, the three compounds - terpenes, THC, and CBD - are able to provide a reprieve for a myriad of mental and physical health issues.
Great at relaxing people, Bedica can be used to soothe body pain, muscle tension, and contraction in order to avoid spasms from occurring. The same soothing properties can also reduce inflammation, redness, and swelling in almost any part of the body. The medical hybrid can also be of help to those with difficulty sleeping. A natural sleeping aid, Bedica can get users to bed in no time at all.
Bedica is not only a gift to users but also to growers. Blessed by excellent Indica lineage, Bedica has branches and a stem that is very sturdy. With such strong, healthy parts, it can withstand sudden changes in temperature, humidity, and lighting. It can also adapt to various types of growing methods such as the Screen of Green (SRoG), the Sea of Green (SOG), and even hydroponic systems. Regardless of the technique, Bedica will produce dense, resinous dark green buds once it flowers.
It should be noted that since Bedica is a commercial strain, it may be best suited for indoor settings.
Bedica likely flowers from 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors, with yields of up to 12 ounces of such trichome frosted buds per square meter.
The strain is expected to bloom by October with each plant yielding 12 ounces or more.
