Huckleberry Hound boasts a sweet berry scent underlined by floral notes. It has hints of spicy earth to blunt the potential sourness. Broken apart and combusted, its buds exude a refreshing pine.
In the palate, Huckleberry Hound’s spicy flavors of wet soil take center stage before quickly dissolving into a woody pine. Swirling the smoke brings out its blend of sweet berries which, on the exhale, leave a delectable tanginess.
Users can expect Huckleberry Hound to cast the usual dry spell. It affects the eyes and the eyes the most, especially once its cannabinoids begin to interfere with moisture production. Its effects are usually mild, but one may prevent it from exacerbating by downing a few glasses of water throughout the day.
Huckleberry Hound has a myriad of medicinal benefits. One of which is stress relief. In inducing its recreational mood lift, it also soothes tired spirits, calms the nerves, and refreshes the mind. Along with the upbeat disposition, it allows the chronically stressed to withdraw the mind to a state of calm.
Its therapeutic value extends to other aspects as well. For instance, it could also be used to manage symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD. The mood-enhancing onset also brings in a gentle euphoria that temporarily pushes back feelings of hopelessness and despair.
Although subtle, the light mental stimulation could also be of use to patients with a lack of appetite. It encourages users to eat meals heartily. Moreover, because it soothes the stomach, it also appeases gastrointestinal pains reducing the possibility of regurgitation, vomiting, or nausea.
Patients will also find comfort in its painkilling properties. Although moderate, its THC levels are still enough to turn it into a natural analgesic that eliminates a wide variety of pain regardless of the source or intensity. It is particularly effective against common aches and pains such as headaches, joint pains, and arthritis.
Huckleberry Hound exhibits many of the coveted traits of both Indicas and Sativas. For instance, it is not at all lanky despite the fact that it tends to stretch upward. On the contrary, it has rather thick stalks with good resistance to many common pests and diseases. It is also relatively dense, allowing better air flow and light distribution in the lower nodes.
Highly versatile, Huckleberry Hound flourishes both indoors and outdoors. Growers have more control over the latter with regard factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity. Moreover, provisions could easily be made to accommodate any needs that may arise as the plant transitions from one phase to the other.
Controllable environments also make it easier to set up advanced growing techniques like the Sea and Screen of Green method. The former coaxes a single cola while the latter creates multiple budding sites. Both shorten the flowering period and improve yields.
However, the free space and access to sunlight allows Huckleberry Hound to grow vigorously. It is able to develop a more robust root system that is not confined by a pot. Its tendency to stretch also becomes less of a problem since it is not limited by a tent or room. The natural illumination, on the other hand, provides it with additional energy for bud production.
Indoors, Huckleberry Hound has a total flowering period of 8 to 10 weeks. By then, growers can expect between 12 to 14 ounces of buds per square meter.
In the northern hemisphere, Huckleberry Hound takes anywhere between the second to the last week of October to fully mature. Once ready for harvest, it yields high – producing at least 12 ounces of buds per plant.
