Flo Strain

This distinct sativa-dominant strain is an award-winning variant, having been rated the #1 strain in the 1996 Cannabis Cup. Flo is known for many other exceptional features, and despite its lower than average THC percentage, it has proven itself to be a powerful ally in the fight to manage and soothe a number of chronic pains disorders.

Flo is a beautiful and fragrant sativa-dominant hybrid that was created in the Netherlands. It is a mix of an Afghani and Purple Thai, creating the perfect blend between a powerful indica painkiller and an uplifting and happy-go-lucky sativa. Thus was created what now is known as an enjoyable but also practical hybrid strain.

This power-hybrid was initially created by Dutch Passion but then continued on under the wing of DJ Short. Its exceptional aroma makes it even more of a stand-out, as Flo contains hints of spice but also shocks of menthol and florals, making it an indescribable smoking experience in many ways.
