Breeders at Branden Waite crossed Cinderella's Dream with staple hybrid Headband and got Princess's Tiara. But she's not just a headpiece, she's a dynamic, long-lasting high with deep earthy flavors and a large ranging THC content, which has been measured between 12% and 22%.
Princess's Tiara has smaller flowers that cling together in tight, pebbly formations. These popcorn-like nugs have a decidedly indica structure with mossy green leaves that are thrown into contrast by bright orange hairs. Her sparkle comes from the resinous, translucent trichomes that cover her flowers craggy surface, and makes her tough to break up without a grinder.
Like the many jewels that make up a tiara, she has a variety of scents. Initially there's an earthy funk, redolent of wet soil and leaves, but get closer and you could detect some underlying sweetness. Grind them up and you'll reveal more of an intense, almost fermented odor, that when combusted, burns with a harsh, sour smoke which could trigger a coughing fit for sensitive palates. On the exhale, this smoke tastes fruity and sour.
It may be a while before Princess's Tiara reveals her high, some only noticed effects about ten minutes later. They say $$Heavy is the head that wears the crown$$ and she has that sensation, along with a constricted feeling around the temples and lower forehead - which is how her parent strain Headband got its name. Don't worry, when that sensation dissolves, you may ease into an elevated mindset where concepts that might not have been interesting, suddenly become fascinating, and depending on your personality, may lead to bouts of chattiness or introspection. For those who want to get some work done, let her inspire productivity on anything from complex tasks to creative pursuits.
After about an hour, depending on your dosage, her initial energy may start to dissolve into a deep body stone. You may start to sense a weighty feeling creeping into your limbs and rippling inward, relaxing the core and eventually your mind. While you may still be able to think clearly and carry on lucid conversations, this newfound sedation is likely to outstrip any earlier motivation. At this point, it's time to kick back and get comfortable with a TV show or a good book. Because of its slow decrescendo into sleepiness, Princess's Tiara is recommended for afternoon or early evening use.
Princess's Tiara has some beneficial properties for those using the strain medically. Her onset of cerebral rush may help those with ADD to stay focused on the task at hand, and her ability to elevate mood may temporarily counteract some symptoms of stress and depression. For the body, she can be an analgesic for acute as well as chronic pain and her anti-inflammatory properties may also help take the edge off of minor discomforts. Put yourself in a relaxed space and she may even be a remedy for those struggling with insomnia. She's a good option for those who are prone to panic or sensitive to THC because she carries a lower than average risk of obsessive, paranoid thinking.
Branden Waite does what all Royalty do, keeps their crown jewels close! Princess's Tiara seeds have not been cultivated for commercial sale, but if you find yourself with a clone or a spare seed keep it in a controlled indoor setting or outdoors in a humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Plants follow an indica growth template and tend to be smaller with strong, sideways-growing branches that when grown indoors, flowers within 8 to 9 weeks.
A great all-purpose smoke, Princess's Tiara is as enjoyable to toke alone as it is to share with friends.
