Crème Brûlée Strain Review

Reading time: 8 minutes

The Crème Brûlée marijuana strain is an 80/20 indica dominant hybrid. With parent strains that include OG Kush, Girl Scout Cookies (GSC), and Platinum Kush, Crème Brûlée is quite literally the stuff of legends.

Conflicting data surrounds its origins, with more than a few breeders claiming ownership, but most agree it’s Emerald Family Farms that hold bragging rights.

Since first appearing on the scene, several versions of the Crème Brûlée marijuana strain have emerged, though none quite like the original. 

This indica leaning strain has a THC level of 15% to 20% and a higher than most CBD level of more than 1%.

Myrcene is the dominant terpene in both OG Kush and Platinum Kush, so it comes as no surprise that myrcene is at the forefront of the Crème Brûlée terpene profile. 

Other terpenes include beta-caryophyllene (inherited from Girl Scout Cookies), D-limonene, and a touch of linalool.

In addition to giving this strain its unique ambrosia flavors, this mighty terpene cocktail blends flawlessly with THC and CBD to deliver salubrious effects.

Crème Brûlée presents as a dense and bushy plant with stout, Sacramento green nugs.

These deep green nugs contrast with subtle, lighter green hues, spots of burnt orange from the pistils nestled beneath, and a generous coating of sticky frosted trichomes.

    Crème Brûlée Strain Effects

    The Crème Brûlée cannabis strain delivers a satisfying and compelling high. It’s one of the better strains for newbies as the effects are evident without being overwhelming.

    Some experienced users may find the high a little too mild compared to other strains, but that’s part of the appeal for most.

    You’ll feel it primarily in your body as more numbness than an intense tingling—the high hits with a sudden rush of euphoric energy before settling into a light, clear-headed calm.

    Overall you’ll feel both mentally and physically at peace, with very little desire (or energy) to do much.

    Crème Brûlée Strain Fragrance

    Imagine it’s Christmas evening. You’re sitting beside a wood-burning fireplace, sipping on a vanilla latte. The smell of freshly baked biscuits wafts through the kitchen door.

    As you reach for the presents nestled under the tree, you notice the scent of crisp pine. 

    You feel cozy and warm, and a flutter of excitement fills your tummy as you begin to open your first gift. Crème Brûlée brings this cozy winter scene to mind.

    Disclaimer: Crème Brûlée lacks quintessential holiday scents such as slow-burning wood, baked biscuits, or crisp pine.

    Crème Brûlée strain flavors

    If you’re craving something utterly decadent, Crème Brûlée is the ultimate indulgence. With swirls of vanilla bean, roasted chestnut, and hints of hazel, it’s just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy the palate.

    The terpene profile offers notes of musk, spice, and ground earth, with a subtle piquancy of fresh citrus. These flavors combine to bring you a treat that oozes luxury. 

    Crème Brûlée cannabis strain adverse reactions

    The onset of this strain is instant yet creeping, so go slow, especially if it’s your first time. The effects are long-lasting and will intensify the more you consume, so moderation is key.

    It only takes one toke and will continue to grow as the high settles in. 

    It’s easy to overconsume and find yourself unwittingly couch-locked or completely zonked out. That’s why this strain is best reserved for evening use or on days where your schedule is open.

    Personal tolerance comes into play, and you may need to practice a little trial and error before finding the amount that works for you. 

    Some people feel paranoid after using this strain, which seems more likely in greater amounts. You may also experience dizziness, so try this from the comfort of your home if it’s your first time. The most commonly reported side effects were dry eyes and dry mouth.

    Growing Crème Brûlée weed strain

    The Crème Brûlée cannabis strain is available as feminized seeds. Cultivators have praised its hardiness, noting the plant as resistant to harmful pests like mold and mites. This resilience makes the plant suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation. Note, though, that Crème Brûlée is a difficult strain to grow.

    The plant responds best to a 12/12 photoperiod, meaning 12 hours of light on, 12 hours of light off, best achieved with an indoor setup.

    Especially when using a grow light in conjunction with a timer. You can control your growth more easily indoors and avoid pesky weather conditions. Systems such as SOG and hydroponics can yield great results. 

    Although growing Crème Brûlée strain is difficult for new growers, it is moderately straightforward to grow indoors or outdoors for those with more experience as long as the correct techniques are applied.

    As an indica dominant strain, the plants grow thick and dense. Groom and defoliate regularly and trim or remove leaves to expose the buds to more light and ventilation.

    This method increases the plant’s photosynthesis and accelerates growth. 

    Many cultivators recommend using no-till soil lavished in natural nutrients. When working with nutrients, start slowly and increase the nutrient amounts in moderation only when the plant’s growth calls for it. Incorporating posts can also increase production.

    The plants will have more space to grow.
