Information about Magnum:
Magnum is one herb that truly lives up to its name. It has a towering height while its buds are dense, heavy, and large in size. Trichomes dust each nug with a frosty sugar that can sometimes shock users as it almost looks milky white.
Indeed, Magnum is an intimidating strain. In truth, however, it is actually quite friendly. Apart from being a quick-flowerer due to its auto-flowering nature, it is an easy grow that will yield vigorously.
With THC levels averaging between 10% to 15%, it delivers a psychedelic high that beginners and veterans alike can appreciate. It clears the mind and enhances the mood while simultaneously reinvigorating users.
Hailing from sunny Spain, its effects are only expected. After all, a trip to the wonderful country or seeing its lively culture through photos is enough to bring moods up. Moreover, it is a product by top breeders Buddha Seeds who developed Magnum using a Sativa, Indica, and a Ruderalis strain.

Magnum is a social strain that is best used with others. Its rapid surge of energy gets users pumped up for a fun get-together. At the same time, it invigorates the mind with happy thoughts and memories that leave one wanting to share stories for the rest of the day.
Gradually, an uplifting buzz begins to ebb down from the temples. It swarms the body with a warm, fuzzy sensation that loosens muscles from head to toe. The blanket of relaxation is intense, but keeping it from overcoming users with a couch-lock is the persistent mental effects from the onset.
Because of its great wake-and-bake qualities, Magnum is best used in the morning as a mental pick-me-up instead of coffee. However, one can still smoke it during the late afternoons or early evenings for a boost of energy while doing extra hours at work or simply attending an event.
Magnum fills the air with the spicy smell of fragrant herbs. Adding character are piney overtones that come with sweet floral hints. When the buds are broken apart, the smell of wet soil permeates from them.
Although rare, users sometimes feel slightly paranoid while using Magnum especially in high doses. Most of the time, however, the side effects are limited to the unavoidable dryness in the eyes and the mouth due to cannabinoids interfering with the body’s natural ability to produce moisture. Because it lasts for hours, it is best to stay hydrated throughout the day.
Magnum’s prowess as a recreational strain is undeniable. However, in inducing its effects, it also provide users with a reprieve against various health issues including depression and stress.
Meanwhile, its soothing physical buzz relieves pain form various parts of the body beginning from the temples. It appeases the sharp pressure from behind the eyes, or intraocular pressure, which eventually develop into glaucoma when left unmanaged.
Magnum is one of the easiest strains to grow in the cannabis industry. After germination, it flowers quickly without many qualms. Its hardy structure can handle various problems such as fluctuations in weather, strong gusts of wind, as well as some common pests and diseases. However, aspiring growers must pay heed to various environmental factors as it can determine the amount of yields the plant produces.
The ideal setting to grow this strain is indoors. In such controllable environments, growers can adjust temperature, humidity, and lighting. Installing ventilation systems and fans improves air circulation while drying out excess moisture that can seep into the plant’s crevices before developing into mold or mildew.
Buddha Seeds advises indoor cultivators to avoid placing Magnum in a large pot to control its above-average height. Outdoor growers, on the other hand, may plant it directly unto soil or place it in a big pot so it has ample space to fulfill its potential.
Luckily, its seeds are sold online in both regular and feminized form. The former is great for those that wish to grow males for breeding whereas the latter is ideal for people that are only looking to get females.
A controlled environment is arguably the best place to grow Magnum. It produces a hefty amount of buds that average around 19 to 21 ounces of buds per square meter 11 weeks after germination.
