G Force is an indica-dominant hybrid with deeply relaxing effects. Created by the Netherlands-based breeding operation Flying Dutchmen, this strain crosses mind-bending G13 with an unnamed combination of Northern Lights and Skunk. These potent parents unite to form a deeply fragrant bud. With THC levels measured at between 16% and 26%, G Force is sure to impress even longtime cannabis users.
Flowers of G Force are small to medium in size, clinging together in tapered conical formations. The internal structure of these buds hews more indica, with a dense core composed of tightly-curled leaves. These leaves are a mix of mossy green and yellow and are intertwined with curly orange pistils. Finally, G Force's flowers are coated in a blanket of cloudy, amber-colored trichomes that account for the strain's high psychoactivity.
A first whiff of G Force's solid flowers may pick up on the pleasant scent of orange mixed with pine, giving an overall aromatic impression similar to that of Jack Herer. A closer inspection might detect intensely sweet, almost skunky odors as well. When G Force is ground up or broken apart, meanwhile, it can have more of an earthy character. Burning these flowers in a pipe or a joint gives off a smooth and easily ingested smoke. This smoke mixes flavors of citrus and skunk on the exhale.
As with many other indica-leaning strains, G Force's high can be a creeper, taking several minutes before its effects begin to manifest. Eventually, users will feel a headrush that comes with strange sensations like an increased pulse around the temples or some flushing in the cheeks. Once these facial tics become more familiar, consumers may perceive a change in their mindset. Certain sensory stimuli can seem to take on a new intensity and may be subject to slight visual or auditory distortions. Additionally, smokers may experience an uncanny sense of time moving more slowly. Those who are so inclined can push these trippy phenomena even further with atmospheric enhancements like moody music. Other than these psychedelic properties, though, G Force won't do much in the way of mental stimulation and is not the strain to choose if you're trying to seize on some productivity.
True to its name, G Force begins to exert some heavy gravity on its smokers within an hour or so. Limbs and eyelids might begin to feel progressively weightier, making physical exertion difficult for those who may be out and about. Those who are lucky enough to be lounging at home, meanwhile, may start to sink into the furniture as any earlier preoccupations or stressors begin to fade away. In these later stages, G Force's high is best suited to lazy activities like binge-watching. Because of its mostly sleepy vibes, this strain is recommended for late afternoon or evening consumption.
G Force's sedative properties can have several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its soothing mood can provide some temporary relief from the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. The strain can also soothe physical pain, whether it's temporary and inflammation-related or due to chronic conditions like lupus. G Force's tendency to induce the munchies can even be a way to boost appetite for those suffering from digestive conditions or undergoing chemotherapy. In a totally relaxed set and setting, this strain may even lull insomniacs to sleep. Because it brings relatively little risk or paranoia or disordered thinking, G Force is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Fortunately for home growers, seeds of G Force can be purchased online. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, with outdoor success depending on a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures of between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Plants tend to max out at four feet tall and have a bushy, branchy stature; growers may need to occasionally trim away any broad, obstructive fan leaves. G Force flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors.
A great way to relax after a stressful day, G Force is a must-try for indica fans. If you break it out in public, be prepared for its punchy citrus aroma to attract some attention.
