Bordello is generally more Indica dominant in its genetic makeup, but also can provide a sativa-like cerebral high. This strain is known for being very effective in treating migraines and even glaucoma, making it a useful medical strain that is widely recommended to patients.

Bordello is an indica dominant hybrid that was created by crossing Blueberry Apocalypse with the strain Alexis. This provocatively named strain has a strong body stone, and is said to have been created by a breeder named Lonestar who is associated with the Texas Resin Company.

Although this strain’s exact origins are widely disputed, there is little doubt over its potency and its ability to leave the consumer in a very relaxed state. Bordello contains a THC content that is usually around 18%, although can sometimes end up in the 20%.
