Information about Lavender:
This indica dominant strain is a favorite on the Californian coast for a reason. Lavender comes on slowly and gently induces a tingly full-body sensation. Its diverse lineage serves as a guarantee of what’s to come – this strain is great for unwinding after a long and stressful day at work, as it is calming and invigorating.
Lavender is a sweet smelling indica variant, but don’t let its name fool you – this one packs a punch. It was bred by Soma Seeds, and stems from an especially diverse parentage, namely that of legendary super-strain Super Skunk, Big Korean Skunk, Afghani and Hawaiian, creating a powerful indica dominant hybrid.
This strain is famous for its high THC levels, and its undeniable sedative effects. Lavender not only smells pleasant, but also is a very enjoyable cerebral smoke. It has gained popularity all over the West Coast, and has maintained this due to its many medicinal effects, coupled with a supremely pleasurable overall high.
