A cactus is one of the most resilient plants in the world. They thrive in the hottest of weathers and may even withstand a cold day or two. The plant also gained acclaim for the distinct taste of its tangy yet refreshing juice. In fact, to this day, many try to recreate its flavor by creating their own fizz drink.
Information about Cactus Cooler:
The famous Cactus Cooler soda is one such example. Although, a strain by the same name also exists in the cannabis industry. Like its namesake, the Sativa-leaning hybrid boasts tropical flavors that leave a strong note of ripe oranges lingering in the palate even after the last puff. Moreover, it has a cerebral zing that stimulates the mind and keeps users in a temporary state of bliss.
In creating Cactus Cooler, its breeders crossed two famous strains originating from California – Blue Dream and OG Kush. The former enhanced the Sativa effects and lanky structure of its offspring with its hardiness and potency. Meanwhile, the latter provided its citric terpene profile and stress-crushing buzz.
Like the carbonated beverage, Cactus Cooler is enjoyed by all. It has a buildable high suitable for users regardless of experience. Moreover, its therapeutic value provides patients with mental and physical relief from certain health conditions.

Fast-acting and buildable are two words that best describe Cactus Cooler. Like other predominantly Sativa strains, its effects start immediately after the first few puffs. However, because its THC levels range from 14% to 23% THC, users can tailor the intensity of the psychedelic high based on individual tolerance or preference.
During the initial onset, a rush of euphoria swarms the mind. A great party strain, it leaves users feeling happy from within and brings back joyous memories of the past. The upbeat disposition turns many into social butterflies. Because of this, it is best to smoke the strain with friends.
In due course, an uplifting wave ebbs down from the temples. It soothes the body and unties knots in the muscles. In the place of tension is a subtle heaviness in the limbs that is not at all sedating. Instead, it helps users move around with ease and complete tasks without feeling tired.
Due to its strong overtones of lemons and oranges, the tropical Cactus Cooler is incredibly tangy when drawn in. In the palate, it produces a sweet floral undertone that is noticeable only when savored. On the exhale, these flavors are enhanced by a note of earth that lingers even after the last puff.
Cannabinoids in marijuana usually interfere with the production of moisture in the tear ducts and the salivary glands. Thus, it is not uncommon for the eyes and the mouth to dry. Neither are a cause for concern though. Still, it is important to hydrate during and after the high.
When used exorbitantly, Cactus Cooler can cause its users to “green out.” It is characterized by increased levels of anxiety due to a keen awareness of one’s surroundings. Some also experience a headache. Apart from individual tolerance, one’s disposition before the session can be a major factor. In such cases, it is best to pace consumption.
Cactus Cooler is a versatile strain with a wide array of uses. Its happy high, for example, is not only for recreation. It effectively reduces stress levels by enhancing the mood and stabilizing it. In a similar manner, its calming effects on the mind temporarily eases symptoms of depression and other mental illnesses like PTSD.
In high levels, THC turns into a natural analgesic that helps manage various kinds of aches and pain in the body beginning from the temples. The same soothing high also relaxes any contractions in the stomach and, with its antiemetic properties, prevents nausea. For this reason, Cactus Cooler is a great medicinal aid for cancer patients going through the powerful aftereffects of chemotherapy.

Blue Dream’s strong structure is evident in the Sativa-leaning Cactus Cooler. It is sturdy with lateral branches that rarely break off due to strong gusts of wind. However, the plant has a strong preference for Mediterranean climates.
This is not to say Cactus Cooler does not perform well in the short days and summers of northern latitudes. Rather, the lack of sunlight extends the flowering period up early November. For this reason, many growers prefer cultivating their strain in controllable environments where they can mimic the warm, semi-humid weather of equatorial regions by adjusting factors like humidity, temperature, and lighting.
Grown indoors, Cactus Cooler’s necessitates height management techniques like early topping. Hastening the vegetative period will counteract the growth spurt that usually occurs at the start of the flowering phase. Once it fully blossoms, it produces dense, spade-shaped buds coated in a heavy blanket of trichomes.
It typically takes Cactus Cooler anywhere between 8 to 10 weeks to fully bloom. Once mature, growers may harvest at least 12 to 16 ounces per square meter. However, applying the Screen of Green method can vastly increase yields.
In the northern hemisphere, Cactus Cooler flowers between the second or third week of October to the first week of November with each plant yielding at least 16 ounces worth of cured buds.
