Unlike the fear that would come from entering a lion's den, the strain Lions Gate takes on a whole new meaning with a plant that's beautiful and tasty. Breeders have intentionally kept themselves a secret here, why we don't know, so the parentage of this strain is also a mystery. However, unlike other indica strains, Lions Gate brings a really nice set of varied effects that you'll want to experience again and again.
A great strain for all users, Lions Gate averages around 14% THC, making it a good option for newbies and beyond. Many are amazed by the appearance of each nug, which comes in a dark green with purple undertones, orange hairs, white trichomes, and a thick, sticky coating of resin. What's more, the flavor profile of this strain is amazing, as citrus and mint dance on your tongue and in your nose.
So many indica strains take you straight to a feeling of complete relaxation with some rendering you completely useless. This is not the case with Lions Gate, as users note a nice feeling of motivated energy that allows them to zero in on their pressing tasks. A buzzing sensation will accompany this mental state as it starts in the neck and shoulders and gradually moves throughout your entire being. While your focus is short-lived, it's replaced by a welcome relaxation that will leave you completely at ease for hours.
Great for a host of medical conditions, this strain works wonders for those who struggle with both fatigue or insomnia, depending on which set of effects you're after. General pain, stress, and even issues with appetite or nausea can all be helped by Lions Gate. While its lineage has been said time and time again to be solely indica, it's a strain that offers a little bit of everything for patients seeking relief.
Not much is known about how to harvest Lions Gate on your own, but it probably has something to do with why genetic information is completely non-existent. What has been reported is that indoor growth is preferred, with an 8 week flowering time needed to produce optimal yields. If you find yourself with some seeds or clones, experiment with different growing techniques to see what works the best.
Lovely flavors, balanced effects, and the ability to combat pain and stress - what more could you ask for? Sure, maybe we'd like to know who to thank for creating this amazing strain, but at the end of the day that's neither here nor there. Keep some Lions Gate in your stash at all times and don't be afraid to share it with a friend. It's a great option for an at home chill session or for times when you want to cross off some looming domestic tasks.
