Hurricane takes users on a wild ride with its energizing head-to-toe high with a strong onset. It uplifts tired spirits, enhances the mood, and gets one enthusiastic over ideas or light physical activities. As such, it is a great daytime strain.
One thing to remember though is that not all daytime strains have wake-and-bake qualities. In Hurricane’s case, this is true. However, it does make for an impressive conversation starter that can be used right before a social situation.

In creating the strain, Reserva Privada used Panama Punch as a genetic base for Hurricane’s fruity terpene profile. It also influenced its offspring’s high THC levels and intense head high. Meanwhile, the addition of LA Confidential strengthened its ease of growth, high yields, stability, and stress-crushing body buzz.

Hurricane has quick-acting effects that attract any Sativa fans. It delivers a potentially head-slamming high with its 18% to 21% THC within minutes after the first two to three minutes. Hence, users should always the strain in moderation.
At the onset, it delivers an uplifting and invigorating buzz that stimulates the mind. It clears away distracting thoughts and creates a path for free-flowing thoughts that form into ideas. Hence, users also experience a spark in creativity.
Behaviorally, the change is magnified. Users beam a broad smile inspired by a happiness from within. It leaves one feeling cheery and confident too. As such, it should come as no surprise that users end up being more talkative than usual.
The rush of energy continues on for hours. It revitalizes the body and loosens tightness around the muscles. Like a well-oiled machine, users can move freely, perform light physical activities, or pursue passion projects.
Overall, Hurricane is a great strain to use in the morning. However, one should avoid it on a workday. Because, although it can sharpen the senses, it is more distracting than output-oriented.
Hurricane is a true tropical strain. It has fruity overtones of crushed berries accentuated by a spicy undertone. Lining its hems are herbal notes with an earthy quality that intensifies once the buds are either broken apart or combusted.
Like a tropical drink, Hurricane’s fruity flavors of crushed berries burst in the palate. It is sweet and tangy with a hint of spiciness that enhances the overall profile. On the exhale, it leaves an freshly unearthed herbal aftertaste that lingers in the palate for hours after the last puff.
Dryness is an expected reaction to smoking marijuana. After all, cannabinoids do interfere with moisture production and, as a result, users end up with red eyes and a cottonmouth that lasts for a few hours. Although it usually goes away on its own, one can manage the symptoms by downing a few glasses of water throughout the day.
Although rare, it is possible to green out while using Hurricane. The heightened sensibilities can be disorienting and triggering for anxiety-prone users. And, at its worst, it can further develop into a subtle feeling of paranoia. Hence, users should always use the strain with caution.
Stress is a big part of the modern day life. In moderation, it catapults one to excellence. However, if left to accumulate, it can be the cause for multiple health issues such as hypertension, heart attacks, and the early onset of depression along with other mental health issues like anxiety. As such, it is of utmost importance that users release it.
To this end, Hurricane is the perfect choice. It delivers a happy head high that relieves the stress accumulated throughout the week or month. Its calming euphoria soothes worrying thoughts while uplifting the mood. As such, users end up feeling more upbeat throughout the high. This quality also makes it a great anti-depressant that manages symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
Its invigorating effects also extend to the rest of the body. It soothes the muscles, bringing back the initial limberness that users lose once stressed. At the same time, its high levels of THC also reduce aches and pains beginning from the temples.
Hurricane brings out the best qualities in both Sativas and Indicas. It is tall but not at all lanky. Instead, it has a thick frame with sturdy branches and stalks that can withstand a variety of growing factors. Its buds also exhibit the same hybrid traits. It is elongated, dense, and boasts purple hues with streaks of mint green.
The Sativa-leaning strain is a great candidate for outdoor growing. It is a hardy bud that, in spite of its propensity for a Mediterranean climate, can perform well in the colder weather in the northern hemisphere. However, it will need to be protected against the frost which can kill it overnight. A temporary enclosing works well to this end.
Indoors, Hurricane needs to be topped early then pruned. The former will force the plant to flower early while managing its height. Meanwhile, the latter encourages better air circulation in the lower nodes to avoid any moisture buildup that eventually lead to the development of mold or mildew.
Because of its seemingly hybrid structure, Hurricane can be trained using either the Sea or Screen of Green methods. Growers can place a screen above it then weave its branches to distribute light evenly or place at least four of the same plant in a single square meter. Either way, both methods will help significantly and positively impact its yields.
Mediums also have an impact on the turnout. A hydroponics setup, for example, will deliver nutrients directly to the roots. As a result, plants grow healthier and have a shorter flowering period. Soil, on the other hand, improves flavors by doubling terpene production.
Reserva Privada has released the strains in feminized form. Not only will it ensure growers of a full female batch, but also a shorter and relatively easier growing process.
Hurricane has an indoor flowering period of 8 to 10 weeks. Once fully mature and ready for harvest, the high-yielding strain produces between 12 to 14 ounces of buds per square meter.
In the northern hemisphere, Hurricane flowers between the middle to the last week of October. It yields high, with each plant producing at least 14 ounces of buds at harvest.
