Mt. Hood Magic is a famed strain with eye-catching flashes of orange and sparkling golden trichomes against a backdrop oft5dgxdgd0067s jgegd deep greens. When its buds are combusted and inhaled, it delivers a unique head-to-toe high that is similar to that of a hybrid. It may have to do with its existence as both a potent Sativa and Indica leaning variety. Between the two, the most common is the latter.

Its history can be traced back to a breeder crossing Northern Lights # 5 and Durban Poison. The former is a formidable Indica that won multiple awards during the 90s. In fact, it is considered as one of the most famous and influential strains throughout the history of cannabis. Meanwhile, the latter is a potent Sativa with a worldwide following for its ability to induce a cerebrally stimulating head high for a productive day ahead.

The natural light from the sun provides Mt. Hood Magic with enough energy to produce an even higher yield. However, the lack of predictability or control over growing factors often entice growers to cultivate it indoors. A controllable environment allows one to adjust temperature, lighting, and humidity.

Although grow lights cannot supplant the sun, but growers can use high intensity lights for higher yields. For better aeration, one can install an efficient ventilation system that will wick off moisture in a batch so it is not ravaged by humidity-related problems like mold or mildew. Supplementing it with a fan will ensure that the plants do not suffer from the heat.
