Supernatural may not allude to the hit American TV show of the same name. But, like it, the plant is an award-winner. Not too long ago, it took home the 2nd place award for Best Sativa during the 2012 High Times Medical Cannabis Cup held in Seattle. Since then, its out-of-ordinary Sativa-dominant traits have paved the way for other mind-bending strains like it.
Information about Supernatural:
Developed by Exotic Genetix, it is only natural that Supernatural boasts excellent genes. One of which is the Indica leaning Grape God, a strain with a strong fruity profile. It was later paired with The Flav, a cannabis variety highly acclaimed for its Sativa high. It even garnered a spot in the Top 10 Strains of 2008, a list created by the High Times.
Both produced a Sativa-leaning hybrid that boasts potent levels of THC and a great reputation for boosting moods. Not only that, Supernatural is an easy grow thanks to its sturdy Indica structure.

With THC levels that range from 17% to 22%, Supernatural is undoubtedly a powerful strain. And, backed by its impressive predominantly Sativa genes, it delivers a fast-acting high that begins almost immediately after the first puff.
The initial onset is marked largely by a euphoric rush that intensifies with each puff. As it spreads to the deepest recesses of the mind, it enhances the mood and leaves users feeling happier. The upbeat disposition can also sometimes be a source of personal confidence for some, especially those with work ahead of them. It ignites one’s innate sense of creativity. And, rather than ruminating over a single idea, the mental clarity paves the way for profound thoughts.
Gradually, what seemingly is like a shot of espresso turns into a soothing cup of tea. From the temples, a soothing sensation trickles down. It loosens tightness in the muscles and invigorates the body through and through. Freed of tension, users move around with ease and a fluidity akin to waves.
Supernatural appeals to lovers of tropical flavors. In the palate, it bursts with the taste of grapes with hints of citrus just like its Grape God parent. On the exhale, it leaves an earthy yet floral aftertaste.
Supernatural leaves the eyes and the mouth dry. Both are fairly common reactions to marijuana since certain cannabinoids do interfere with moisture production. Still, many prefer downing a few drinks to keep rehydrated. Downing alcohol or caffeine may exacerbate the negative effects though.
Presumably, Supernatural was created with a recreational end in mind. After all, it does deliver a happy high that undeniably takes users to new heights. Yet, the same effect provides a reprieve against chronic levels of stress. In turn, it helps many manage mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and PTSD through its calming buzz.
Stress also manifests in the body through various cramps and pains. Most of the time, it takes on the form of fatigue. Through its soothing body buzz, Supernatural appeases tightness, tension, and sudden contractions in the muscles. For this reason, it is a perfect companion for a day of relaxation.

Supernatural is a tall plant that stretches up to three times its original size during the vegetative period. For this reason, the early topping is necessary. Not only does it keep the plant short, it encourages better yields. But, apart from its height and preference for warm climates, the Sativa-leaning plant is dominated by Indica traits.
Its stalk, for example, is sturdy and can withstand various problems caused by changes in weather or bursts of wind. Moreover, its naturally branchy structure produces more budding sites that naturally increase the possibility of yields.
But, as a medical marijuana strain, Supernatural thrives best indoors where it is kept away from unpredictable factors like pests and lack of sunlight. In this way, growers assure their patrons of a stabilized strain that boasts the same chemical profile regardless of when it was harvested. Breeders may want to install carbon filters or other odor control systems though as the potent Sativa-leaning hybrid tends to get very pungent once it hits the flowering stage.
Mature Supernatural plants produce dense buds with a distinct combination of purple and green. The same colors carry over to its hairs. A good layer of fine crystal trichomes coats the nugs along with with a sticky blanket of resin.
Supernatural has an indoor flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks. Once mature, it produces 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.
Garden-grown Supernatural blossoms from the last week of September to the second or third week of October. It yields at least 16 ounces of buds per plant.
