Sweet Dreams Strain

Sweet Dreams lives up to its moniker. It delivers a deeply tranquilizing physical buzz that tucks users to bed within hours after the first puff. Before anything else, however, it first takes away worries through an uplifting head high that readies one for the night.

Its heavy-hitting effects can be attributed to K.C. 606 and the Californian Big Bud. The former is an elusive Indica-leaning strain with impressive trichome production. However, it has a rather sour terpene profile. To manage the tanginess, the breeders added in Californian Big Bud for its fruity but earthy flavors. Not to mention, it produces huge nugs and high yields but little leaves.
