Get your mind out of the gutter. In this case, Double D stands for Danky Doodle, a sativa-dominant hybrid cultivated by Netherlands-based growers KC Brains. It is a cross between this breeder's own KC 639 and an unnamed combination of Dutch strain Viking and high-yielding Big Bud. Double D provides users with a cerebral but relaxing high and a classically dank flavor. Its THC content has been measured at between 13% and 21%.
Double D is marked by small, rounded flowers that cling together in popcorn-like clusters; they have a more indica-inflected structure, compact at their core. While underwhelming in size, these buds stand out thanks to their multicolored leaves, while are a dappled mix of mossy green with shades of purple; the latter hues are the result of pigments in the strain's genetics called anthocyanins. Finally, curly orange pistils and resinous trichomes can be found on the inner and outer surfaces of these densely-packed buds.
Double D's flowers give off a sweet and slightly sour aroma, somewhat like rotting fruit or vegetables. There's a mellow earthy scent lurking underneath as well. Grinding up these flowers, meanwhile, gives off some strong skunky fumes. When combusted, the strain can be harsh on the palate and sinuses. An acquired taste for sure, Double D's smoke tends to taste sour on the exhale.
Double D's high is apt to set in rather quickly, with consumers feeling buzzy mental effects soon after toking its heavy smoke. At first, this head-focused action can include odd side effects like a flushing in the cheeks or some increase in salivation. More experienced cannabis consumers, however, are likely to speed right past these physical tics and shoot straight towards an activation of their cerebral powers. Ideas may occur to smokers more frequently or may seem to take on a new intensity; additionally, ideas or spontaneous memories may spring up as a result of freely-associative thinking. As such, Double D is a good choice for those who want to achieve some kind of productivity, whether it's on demanding and complicated tasks or simply boring chores like running errands. Alternatively, the more artistically-inclined may find that Double D sparks inspiration or changes their way of looking at things.
After some time passes, Double D begins to work its magic on the body as well as the mind. Twinges of physical relaxation may work their way down from the neck and through the core and limbs, relaxing those who may have been tense or agitated. It can also work in tandem with Double D's heightened mental state to serve as a potent aphrodisiac, given the right circumstances (or company). Its tuned-in brainy vibes can also encourage talkativeness, whether you're with close friends or a group of new acquaintances. Because of its balanced effects and reserves of energy, Double D is appropriate for daytime or early evening use; if consumed at bedtime, though, it's liable to keep users wide awake.
Double D can have considerable benefits for medical cannabis patients as well. Its alert, focused onset can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders. Its upbeat, euphoric vibes may also help to dull the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. On the physical end of the spectrum, the strain may dull serious, chronic pain conditions as well as incidental, inflammation-related discomforts like cramps and headaches. While any potential feelings of mind race are somewhat tempered by the bud's physical relaxation, patients who are prone to panic or paranoia should consume Double D with some caution.
Seeds of Double D are available directly through KC Brains. Once obtained it can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. According to KC Brains, Double D's tall, slender plants can reach heights of 12 feet when grown outdoors; those growing indoors may want to tame their plants somewhat with some early pruning. Growers looking to bring out their crops' purple potential should briefly expose the plants to nighttime temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below average just before 9 to 11 weeks when flowering beings.
A great all-purpose strain, Double D is a good option for indica and sativa lovers alike. It can be an especially fun way to enhance a camping trip or a day at the museum.
