Mt. Rainier Strain

Mt. Rainier is a volcano in the Pacific Northwest that dominates the landscape. Catching the eye of almost everyone in contact with it is its snow-capped summit that blends with the whiteness of the clouds behind it. In awe of its beauty, RedEyed Genetics named one of its stunning buds after it.

Like the mountain, the bud is completely dusted with white trichomes that make it seem as though fresh snow had fallen on it. A deep, forest green lies beneath the blanket of frost, alluding to its potency. Smelling refreshing like pine sap spread all over a garnish of citrus, its scent alone is enough to take on a trip to the alps.

Grabbing the attention of almost every user that smokes it, however, is the well-balanced high induced by its perfectly split Sativa/Indica genetics. It lifts the mind up to the sky while gently cradling it back to the ground as the effects wane. Moreover, it is completely buildable as its THC levels go between 16% and 21% depending on the dosage or batch.

It was not difficult for RedEyed Genetics to develop the strain. From a wide catalog, they selected White Lotus and Northern Lights #5 as genetic bases. Both of which bring to life a sturdy plant that withstood the harshness of cold weather while maintain the delicious flavor of pine.

    Mt. Rainier inherits the fast-acting magic of its Sativa side. A few minutes after the first two to three puffs, it delivers an uplifting buzz that energizes the mind and the body. Eradicating negativity in a near instant is an innate sense of happiness. It leaves users feeling content, calm, and carefree.

    As the initial mental high persists, a tingly sensation erupts from the temples. It creeps its way throughout the body until, not long after, a soothing wave releases tension until users are enveloped in a sea of relaxation. In all likelihood, users will head on to kick back and recline.

    For some, the freedom from mental and physical inhibition can be a totally arousing experience. A great bedtime companion, Mt. Rainier can turn a night with a loved one into a few hours of passion. Although, if one were to smoke the strain beyond individual tolerance, it can quickly ruin plans. As such, it is important to use the bud within limits to enjoy the full depth of its effects.


    The sweet smell of pine sap and wood emanate strongly from Mt. Rainier’s buds. It is accentuated by the rich scent of damp earth as a skunk permeates the room once the strain is broken apart or combusted.


    A blend of sweet, zesty citrus and refreshing pine rush into the palate as Mt. Rainier’s smoke is drawn in. Further enhancing it are notes of wood that blend perfectly well with the strain’s skunky undertones. On the exhale, it leaves an aftertaste of wet soil.

    Adverse Reactions

    Paranoia is by far the worst side effect that Mt. Rainier induces. It happens to a handful of consumers who smoke the bud beyond tolerance as well as those prone to the unsettling feeling brought about by heightened sensations. Pacing consumption, however, will keep such effects at bay.

    A more unavoidable reaction to Mt. Rainier is dryness especially in areas like the eyes and the mouth. Though mild, the moisture-inhibiting properties of Mt. Rainier can be quite irritating. In such cases, it is best to stay hydrated throughout the day to relieve the ache.


    Mt. Rainier’s parents have immense therapeutic value. As such, it comes as no surprise that it too provides patients with a reprieve against a myriad of mental and physical illnesses. In enhancing the mood, for example, it reduces stress and reinvigorates the body from fatigue.

    In a similar manner, the high-spirited buzz also temporarily relieves symptoms of depression, PTSD, and other mental health issues. It calms the mind of dreadful thoughts as well as anxiety. At the same time, it instill a sense of peace and happiness.

    A natural analgesic, Mt. Rainier appeases pain beginning from the temples. It relaxes the muscles until users eventually doze off. The herb provides patients with sleep issues such as insomnia with a better quality and quantity of rest.

      The Indica genes of Mt. Rainier are well-represented in its structure and growth cycle. The plant is an early bloomer that measures between 3 to 7 feet at maturity. It fits in most growing spaces and highly adaptable to any changes in environment. As such, swings in temperature and strong gusts of wind are not much of a problem for the sturdy plant either.

      Its ability to withstand multiple changes in weather allows it to flourish in the cooler weather of the northern hemisphere. Still, there are many who prefer cultivating the strain indoors where deciding factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity are accessible and adjustable.

      Utilizing hydroponics will help produce “cleaner” buds that are also stronger against pests. But, a soil-based medium will bring out its full flavors. In addition, growing techniques like the Sea of Green will increase yields.

      Aspiring growers will have to apply pre-germination techniques like soaking though. RedEyed Genetics only released the strain in regular form. As such, it should also be kept away from high levels of stress. Otherwise, females will turn into calyx-less males that do not produce the highly-coveted forest-green buds of Mt. Rainier.

      Flowering Time


      Mt. Rainier takes 8 to 9 weeks to flower when it’s grown in controlled settings. Normally, it produces between 12 to14 ounces of buds per square meter. However, under the expert care of a seasoned grower, it can blossom as early as 7 weeks while producing higher yields.


      Flowers often finish blooming from the last week of September to the second or third week of October. Each snow-capped Mt. Rainier produces at least 14 ounces of buds per plant
