Space Candy is a spectacular bud that lives up to its name. Its green buds, although already striking in color, are accentuated by flashes of purple and crimson. Lastly, its crystal trichomes sparkle like stars in the sky against a backdrop of deep hues.
It was not difficult to create Space Candy. Its original breeder, Heroes of the Farm, took Space Queen for its dreamy effects as well as its calming cerebral buzz. Next, they took Cotton Candy Kush to enhance its terpene profile.
Crossing the two industry mainstays resulted in one of Colorado’s best-selling strains. A perfectly balanced hybrid, Space Candy caught the eye of many enthusiasts for its candied look and taste. However, its true value lies in its psychedelic mix of Sativa and Indica effects. Moreover, it remains valuable to patients looking to destress.

With THC levels ranging from 18% to 22%, Space Candy is no doubt a totally potent strain. In all likelihood, it can be quite overwhelming when used outside of one’s limits by those with low individual tolerance. However, beginners may still enjoy the strain through pacing or with the help of a seasoned friend.
Immediately noticeable after the first puff is a euphoric rush that clears the mind. It enhances the mood and inspires a sense of happiness from within. However, the upbeat disposition does not hamper productivity. If anything, the mental clarity makes one work better.
In time, the same uplifting sensation trickles down to the rest of the body from the temples. Taking the place of tension is a soothing buzz that relaxes the muscles through and through. And, with the persistent mental effects, it allows casual users to concentrate for longer periods of time without feeling tired.
Space Candy has an equally delicious flavor. Like biting into a freshly baked fruit pie, a mix of apples, berries, cherries, and citrus ooze into the mouth along with a crust made of nuts. On the exhale, an earthy aftertaste lingers.
Moisture-inhibiting cannabinoids usually cause dehydration. As such, it is not uncommon to see eyes redden while mouths dry. Neither is a cause for concern due to their mildness. They tend to go away with time but, if symptoms continue to persist, users may down a few glasses of water to address the dry spell.
Though rare, Space Candy’s psychedelic effects can also heighten anxiety levels and even induce a subtle dizziness or a headache in some. They are often a reaction to using the bud outside of one’s limits. Pacing and moderation, however, will keep the side effects to a minimum.
Space Candy retains its therapeutic value through its chemical profile. Together, its CBD, THC, cannabinoids, and terpenes help people by providing a reprieve against a variety of health conditions. For one, it has a positive impact on mood disorders such as depression or a similar mental illness like PTSD. By reducing anxiety through its clearheaded high, it calms the mind and allows users to manage stress levels before they turn chronic.
In the body, the soothing buzz eases away pain caused by inflammation, headaches, and back issues. It plants a heaviness in the limbs that allow users to slip into a deep-seated relaxation. A natural sleeping aid, Space Candy helps those with insomnia fall into an unencumbered slumber while simultaneously enhancing the quality of rest.
One of Space Candy’s best use is as an antiemetic. It keeps users from vomiting the food by easing any turmoil in the stomach. For this reason, it is perfect for patients diagnosed with anorexia or those undergoing the physical side effects of chemotherapy.

TGA Subcool Seeds sells seeds of Space Candy in regular form. This lengthens the growing process as it is likely that at least half of the batch will be males. To produce more calyx-filled plants, growers must apply pre-germination methods like soaking. Applying Low-Stress Training will keep successful females from turning into hermaphrodites later on.
From then on, Space Candy is quite an easy grow. Its stalks and branches are hardy. Placed in a garden or farm, it can withstand unpredictable environmental factors like strong gusts of wind, high levels of moisture in the air, and even pests.
Its ability to flourish regardless of its conditions makes it a great grow indoors. Moreover, it has a height that fits most growing spaces. Rarely does the vegetative stage need to be cut short to make room for its growth spurt. Meanwhile, Space Candy’s branchy structure and fast expansion necessitate either the Sea or Screen of Green method.
Using an organic medium like soil truly enhances Space Candy’s overall flavors. Discreet growers may need to install odor-control systems ahead of time though. After all, the pungent terpene profile of its resinous buds floods the room during the flowering phase.
