Red Congolese Strain

Let some people in the cannabis community debate on the origin of Red Congolese strain. As it is, nothing good can come out of it but a waste of time. Instead, let us focus on what this pure Sativa can do.

A lot of strains in the market can help users relax, with some even inducing drowsiness. If this is the kind of effects users want, then Red Congolese is not the right strain. Instead, what it can do is to provide an energy boost with a clarity of mind. Not only do users feel more social, but they are also able to finish tasks. All that and it does not cause one to feel lazy afterward.

It is not hard to imagine that most people would argue that the Red Congolese hails from Africa. After all, its name is suggestive. But most others also take a look at how the plant looks like and decide otherwise. Its Indica-like appearance, they say, suggests it comes from Mexican and Afghani roots.

While its roots remain vague, its effects and benefits make it popular among users.

    Being a pure Sativa, one thing it can do is to deliver a cerebral high. And with up to 20% THC, we know it packs a punch. But unlike many Sativa strains out there, this one is not likely to cause a buzzing mental high.

    At its onset, users soon feel an overwhelming sensation that clears the mind. Not only do they also feel uplifted but also energized. As such, Red Congolese is a great strain to use when there are tasks. Be careful, though. This strain is potent and overusing can induce psychoactive properties. But used in moderation, users feel good and happy, and they are able to complete tasks with better focus.

    For the next couple of hours, users can also expect to have a tingling sensation even as the creative juices in their minds continue flowing.


    Red Congolese is not among the best smelling strains in the world. It comes with a pungent and earthy smell that some users also describe as cheesy as well. While its fragrance may not score a point, think about the effects it gives.

    As for how it tastes, it is a good thing that Red Congolese scores a higher mark in this department. Some of its fragrance does carry over but in a subtle way, and this is further drowned by a sweet and spicy hint blended with a distinct tone of grapefruit. For sure, it tastes better than it smells.

    Adverse Reaction

    Before continuing on to the other positive benefits of Red Congolese, it is time to take a look at some of its nuisances. One, in particular, is something that is common with the use of weeds – dry mouth. So, that is to be expected but it also has other negative reactions that are good to know.

    Among the other rare instances would be dry eyes, dizziness, and feeling more anxious or paranoid. No one wants to experience these conditions, but they can happen to anyone. As such, the best thing one can do is to make sure not to overindulge.


    All the positive benefits of Red Congolese for recreational users become a source of comfort for medical marijuana users. One thing that we are sure of is that anyone who is sick cannot feel good. In fact, such negative feelings tend to worsen stress levels. For that reason, the use of Red Congolese for uplifting the mood becomes essential.

    It should also be noted that most strains, Red Congolese included, which can reduce stress are likely to be beneficial to mental health disorders. These include depression, PTSD, and others. Again, because there are instances when it also elevates anxiousness, always use a small amount, in the beginning, to test it first.

    Because users tend to feel positive and happy, in some ways, it also takes their minds away from any pain they suffering from. Finally, the energy boost it delivers also helps deal with fatigue, and to a certain degree, cramps.

      We do not have much information on the specifics of growing Red Congolese. But we do know it thrives in both outdoor and indoor environment. As an option to growing indoor, using hydroponics could help cut down the flowering time. Because it is a pure Sativa strain, it does take a little longer for flowering compared to Indica strains.

      Flowering Time


      It would take around 10 to 11 weeks before Red Congolese is ready. According to one source, it has a yield of 12 to 16 ounces per square meter.


      Red Congolese strain has an outdoor yield per plant of 16 ounces, and this could be a little more. It should be ready for harvest during the last days of October.
