Peaches and Cream sounds like a delicious dessert. And, indeed it is. In the palate, it is sweet and creamy accented by various fruity flavors. Even its appearance of light pink buds with flashes of orange is similar to a sweet dish served in a bowl.
Information about Peaches and Cream:
Like many great strains, Peaches and Cream’s true power lies in the intensity of its psychedelic high. A potent strain, it delivers an energizing buzz that quickly boosts moods almost immediately after the first puff. Not only that, it is a versatile strain that provides a reprieve against a variety of mental and physical health issues.
While most agree it is a phenotype of Skunk #1, some believe it to be cross of Grape Kush, Maui, Super Silver Haze, and ChemDawg. It is not surprising for people to come to this conclusion though as a cross of all four would most likely yield a strain as wonderful as Peaches and Cream.

At up to 21% THC, Peaches and Cream is definitely every thrill seeker’s dream. It delivers an intense stimulating buzz that reinvigorates the body through and through. Beginners may still enjoy the strain with the help of a seasoned friend though.
With that said, Peaches and Cream’s initial onset is quick. It begins with a euphoric rush to the mind that leaves users feeling happy and easily amused. In some instances, they may even burst into laughter or giggle at the slightest reason. As such, it is best used right before a social gathering.
In time, the Indica effects of the bud begin to manifest. They are heavily influenced by the strain’s strong Sativa genes and are not at all sedating in any way. Rather, an uplifting sensation surges through the muscles and envelops the body in complete relaxation.
Peaches and Cream has a sweet fragrance that is underscored by layers of peaches, apricots, and vanilla. A subtle citrus, reminiscent of oranges, permeates throughout the room once the bud is broken apart or combusted.
Like its smell, Peaches and Cream has a sweet fruity flavor similar to peaches. Enhancing it are notes of ripe oranges and apricots. On the exhale, it leaves a lingering vanilla aftertaste with a slight spicy kick.
Dehydration is a common reaction to using marijuana. It is attributed to moisture-inhibiting cannabinoids that usually affect the mouth and the eyes most. As such, it is best to have a few drinks before, during, and after a session. So long, of course, as the beverage is water since alcohol and caffeine tend to exacerbate the problem.
When used excessively, Peaches and Cream can lead to a condition called ‘greening out.’ It is characterized by either temporary dizziness or headache accompanied by a keen awareness of one’s surroundings that can lead to anxiety. Pacing and moderation, however, will keep such adverse effects at bay.
It would not be surprising for Peaches and Cream to be a recreational strain. After all, that has been the perception of marijuana for the longest time regardless of whether it is right or wrong. Still, the strain remains valuable to the medical community for the natural healing properties of its chemical compounds.
Its happy high, for example, reduces stress effectively. By calming the mind of overwhelming dread, it instills a sense of hope and positively affects outlooks. In the same way, it manages the crippling effects of mental illnesses so people with depression, anxiety, and PTSD can live their lives temporarily.
In high levels, THC turns into a natural painkiller that soothes away cramps and aches all over the body. Its best effect, however, is in the gastrointestinal tract. In relaxing the stomach, it encourages a hearty appetite even in people with cachexia, anorexia, and other eating disorders. Meanwhile, its anti-emetic properties keep users from vomiting the food they have eaten. This is perfect for addressing the nausea that cancer patients experience while undergoing chemotherapy.

Like other Sativa-leaning plants, Peaches and Creams grows lanky. It is tall, thin, and quite sensitive. Factors like strong gusts of wind, high levels of moisture in the air, or pests easily affect the plant. Thus, even while it yields higher and produces more flavorful buds in the outdoors, many growers prefer cultivating their strain in controlled environments.
Grown indoors, Peaches and Cream necessitates an early topping to subdue its height. Otherwise, it may grow too high once the flowering stage hits. Meanwhile, applying methods like the Screen of Green will maximize each square meter while training the branches and extending the space between nodes. Low Stress Training, on the other hand, will encourage better yields.
Peaches and Cream has an indoor flowering period of 10 to 12 weeks. While the skill of the grower is tantamount to its success, its yields usually average around 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.
Outdoors, Peaches and Cream begins to bloom around the second or third week of October to the first week of November depending on the climate. Once mature, it produces at least 12 ounces of buds per plant.
