Crossing their Jock Horror, a combination of Northern Lights, Skunk and Haze, with a landrace Sativa from Oaxaca, Mexico the breeders at Nirvana Seeds created what they call the Nirvana Special. Named for its mouth watering mix of sweet and sour, this Sativa makes users move to a happier beat and think outside the box. Energetic and euphoric, the Nirvana Special may have a THC count as high as 20 percent. A great daytime strain, it may be effective medication for mood disorders, nausea, migraines, anxiety, stress and inflammation.
A great choice for any grower with the space to accommodate it indoors and a couple grows under their belt, the Nirvana Special typically yields at least 300 grams per square meter. This strain can require a lot of support to its side branches during the flowering period, which can last between ten and twelve weeks. Growers recommend taking advantage of its many side branches using multi-branching growing methods. Reaching up to a meter when forced to flower at 20 centimeters, plants may grow male flowers during the final week. Some have had success outdoors, where it is ready in October. The Nirvana Special was awarded first prize in the Bio category of the 2008 High Life Cup.
