Longbottom Leaf is a slightly sativa-leaning hybrid strain of cannabis that is named after a plant from Tolkein's works. In his books, Longbottom Leaf (also Old Toby, Southern Star, and Southlinch) is the name of a pipe-weed that hobbits enjoy smoking. In the movie adaptation of his works, it was implied that Longbottom Leaf was akin to cannabis, as Sauramon at one point criticizes Gandalf for smoking it. However the appendices of the novels show the weed to be nothing more than the equivalent of tobacco. Cannabis growers, however, have adapted these names to cannabis and named strains after them. This one in particular is quite popular amongst those who get the reference and even those who just enjoy good weed.
Longbottom Leaf buds often look like they were taken straight out of a fantasy novel. These often heart-shaped buds are mint green in color, and often covered in winding bright orange hairs. Users will be pleased to find a hearty helping of off-white trichomes suffocating the bud. The smell produced by this bud is a mix between classic pungent weed and strong lemony citrus. The exhale is a slightly harsh mix between lemon and a slightly chemical flavor.
Longbottom Leaf, as described by those who have reviewed the strain, is quite popular because of its incredibly powerful effects that spread throughout your entire body. No sooner than you take a puff of this plant, expect the cerebral high to immediately take hold of your brain. This effect is quite unique, as most often describe being able to feel their mood improve almost instantly after taking a hit of this strain. This euphoric happiness does not fade or falter during your high, sure to leave you elated and talkative for hours on end. As the high continues, the body high begins to settle in without you realizing it. The body buzz slowly and subtly seizes control of your muscles, quickly relaxing any tensions or pains you are experiencing. Without weighing you down or making you feel couch locked, Longbottom Leaf provides ample amounts of physical relief and relaxation. Medical cannabis patients and recreational consumers alike recommend Longbottom Leaf for those suffering from chronic depression, stress, pain, and GI issues like nausea and lack of appetite. We don't recommend a trek across Middle Earth on this bud though, as you'll get a bit sleepy towards the end of your experience and we wouldn't want you stopping for a nap on the path to the Shire and getting lost.
