Lucy is an excellent hybrid. Apart from having potent THC levels that regularly test around 15% to 18%, it also has a CBD content of 8% to 12% which is higher compared to other strains. This makes it both an impressive recreational, casual, and therapeutic smoke.

Users could consume it as a recreational strain and enjoy it with friends. After all, it induces an uplifting buzz that enhances the mood; making it fit for a brunch out with friends. One could also use it alone for its wake and bake qualities, inducing a productive high that not only enhances creativity but also improves productivity. Simultaneously, it is also helping patients dealing with certain mental and physical health issues.

Its sought-after abilities can be traced back to its lineage. From Luca Brasi, it gained its analgesic properties as well as medicinal qualities that help manage symptoms of mental health issues. Meanwhile, LA Confidential contributed to the mix by adding a calming effect.

Compared to its cerebral onset, Lucy’s bodily effects take a while to start. However, once it catches up, it immediately relaxes the body. It kneads the muscles free of tension and tightness, bringing back the initial limberness.

With that said, the versatile hybrid is best used in the morning or early afternoon. It enhances the mood, raises motivation, and allows users to stay productive throughout the day.

The plant will sprout and flourish virtually anywhere, but growers will have the most advantage indoors where it is quicker to adjust factors like temperature, lighting, and humidity. Provisions could easily be made to accommodate its different needs too.

Small fans could be situated so that it reduces the heat between the light and the top. A proficient ventilation system that will help circulate the air into the lower nodes. Meanwhile, switching to high-intensity lights during the flowering period will greatly improve bud production.

The Sea of Green setup works best with Lucy. It takes advantage of its short height and maximizes the space of a growing room. Gently coaxing the colas and bringing it toward the light. This helps develop its budding sites and shorten the vegetative phase without sacrificing yields.

Outdoor growers need not do much to get Lucy to flourish in gardens or farms. Due to its hardy structure, it adjusts well to the lower temperatures of the northern hemisphere. Cultivate it in a strategic area where it receives the most sunlight while also being kept away from intruders, nosy neighbors, and pests.
