Don’t let the name put you off – the Duct Tape weed strain is high-quality cannabis. Its smell, taste, look, and effects all contribute to its appeal, with a strength of presence worthy of its namesake. Crossing Do-si-dos and Original Glue (formerly Gorilla Glue #4), the folks at Archive Seed Bank in Portland, OR, created a well-balanced hybrid that packs a reliable punch with a whopping 23% to 25% THC. Its CBD levels range from 0.47% to 0.65%.
|Sativa/Indica %||Indoor Yield||Outdoor Yield||Flowering Period|
|50%/50%||around an ounce per square foot||around an ounce per square foot||around 10 weeks indoors, harvest around fall outdoors|
The smell of Duct Tape isn’t for the faint of heart. It inherited an earthy, fuel aroma from Original Glue and strong hash notes from Do-si-dos. Consequently, newbies might find the harshness of the gasoline smell a bit much. This is good since Duct Tape is better for more advanced smokers or those willing to go low and slow.
As far as effects, you couldn’t ask for a better strain than this 50/50 hybrid of indica and sativa. Highly potent, Duct Tape hits headfirst with a euphoric feeling that quickly makes its way through the body and delivers a nice boost of energy and creativity. However, don’t call it a daytime smoke. Duct Tape leads to a deep, full-body relaxation that leaves some users feeling sleepy. Give it a test before using it at the start of a busy day.

Duct Tape Effects
Users report various effects from Duct Tape. Some say it has euphoric, creative energy, while, on the other hand, others find it deeply relaxing — so much that it can lead to couch lock or the need for a long nap. Therefore, start slow to find your perfect mellow. This is the most important advice, especially since everyone seems to agree on one thing: this is potent weed!
Newbies, or those particularly sensitive to THC, should take caution with this strain as it consistently tests at a 23-25% potency. Firstly, have some snacks on hand. The munchies are popular with this strain. Secondly, you’ll likely feel pretty sedated and want to bask in the sedated bliss provided by this relaxing strain.
Want to feel something other than sleepy? Duct Tape does not disappoint. Some say it helps with insomnia and other sleep disorders (due to its sedating effects) and nausea or lack of appetite (as it stimulates hunger). There are also stories of depression, anxiety, chronic stress, and PMS succumbing to its power.
Duct Tape Fragrance
There is nothing quite like the aroma of Duct Tape, although it may take some getting used to. Its smoke starts with a strong gasoline smell, following up with some earthy notes, as well as hints of pine. After that, you’ll notice subtle hints of incense and hash reminiscent of its parent, Do-si-dos. Keep in mind, this is a powerful smelling strain; so, it’s not good at staying discreet.
Duct Tape Flavors
The flavor of the Duct Tape strain isn’t too far off from its fragrance. From the first toke, you’ll notice those same notes of fuel, earth, and pine, as well as a gassy flavor. One pleasant surprise is the aftertaste of chocolate that comes from this delectable strain and lasts for quite a while.

Duct Tape is a beautiful plant as well. Light in color and covered in trichomes, this strain has even more frost than its parents. This strain can be grown indoors and out, but it prefers a somewhat tropical climate. That is to say, give it plenty of water and keep humidity levels around 55%. Meanwhile, keep average daytime temps near 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Duct Tape plants thrive with nighttime temperatures around 69 degrees.
You can expect these plants to grow an average of 48 inches in height, so be sure to make plenty of space and plan to train, trim, or top. You may think a bigger weed plant is best. However, that is not always the case. To maximize the yield, light must reach as much of the plant as possible. The problem is, bigger buds at the top can block light from the buds at the bottom. Outdoors, bigger plants can cause problems because they tend to attract attention, but indoors, you’ll want to prevent your plants from taking up too much space.
Duct Tape strain seeds can be grown both indoors and outdoors. The flowering time indoors is generally around ten weeks. However, you can coax this plant to flower in as little as five weeks if grown in the right conditions. Outdoors expect a typical fall harvest.
