Giggles escape the mouth as an innate sense of happiness warms the insides. On the other hand, there is a noticeable mood lift as a gentle rush of euphoria eases users into a state free from stress.
Its heavy-limbed buzz shows up after two to three hours from the first puff. It clears the mind before eventually making its way down the lower extremities, leaving a trace of tingles.

Apart from the usual red eyes and cottonmouth, it is possible for Kaptn’s Grand Dream to go a little bit overboard with its effects. It can leave users feel anxious or slightly paranoia. Most of the time, however, the effects are limited to a headache that disappears on its own after a few hours. Moderating use is still the best recourse to avoid the negative side effects.

Thus, patients with cancer may find it to be an effective antiemetic that fights against the nauseating effects of chemotherapy.
It could also be of use as an analgesic. It has potent painkilling properties that ease a wide variety of aches and pains regardless of intensity, frequency, and source.

Leaning toward the Indica side of the spectrum, Kaptn’s Garden Dream exhibits many of its typical traits. For instance, it has a short stature and a sturdy frame with thick branches that can carry the weight of its heavy buds. It also has above-average resistance to low temperatures, making it an exemplary strain to grow in the northern hemisphere where it is colder.
Trimming is necessary due to its dense foliage. Manicuring the plant, as well as removing dead branches and some broad leaves, will improve the air circulation in the lower nodes. In this way, it does not harbor moisture in between its crevices which could develop into mold or mildew. Installing a proficient ventilation system and supplementing it with a fan will also help reduce humidity from the air.
There is usually no need to deviate from the usual gardening practices, feeding, and nutrition. Still, it would be good to add boosters to supplement the growth of Kaptn’s Garden Dream. Green thumbs with knowledge on advanced growing techniques could also apply the Sea of Green method for higher yields and a shorter flowering time.
Outdoors, Kaptn’s Garden Dream performs best when it can absorb plenty of sunshine. Provisions should be made in case of extreme weather. For instance, one should have a temporary enclosing prepared in case of heavy rains or an early frost. Alternatively, growers can sow the seeds in a pot of organic soil so it is easier to move indoors for protection.
Kaptn’s Grand Dream has a short flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks. It yields between 10 to 12 ounces of buds per square meter once ready for harvest.
Growers from the northern hemisphere will find that flowers mature from the last few days of September to the second or third week of October. One can expect at least 10 ounces of dried buds per plant at chop down.
