Spliff's Strawberry stands out with medium to large flowers that maintain a distinctly elongated, cylindrical formation. The indica influence in the strain's background seems to have extended to the structure of its buds, which are dense and compact. The tightly-curled leaves are a dark shade of forest green and are twisted through with fiery orange pistils. In some cases, Spliff's Strawberry's leaves also show off subtle hints of dark purple, a color that is produced thanks to high concentrations of anthocyanin pigments. Finally, a high volume of translucent white trichomes finish off these solid flowers.

Thanks to its predominantly sativa character, Spliff's Strawberry's high takes effect soon after consumers have inhaled its rich, flavorful smoke. At first, smokers may feel a concerted pressure around the eyes and temples, as well as some possible flushing in the cheeks. These heady sensations are quickly met with a change in the user's patterns of thinking, with certain ideas occupying more attention than they ordinarily might. Free-association can take hold, with thoughts jumping from one to the next or with the user tempted to group abstract concepts into special categories. This kind of tuned-in, analytical thinking can be a good way to accomplish detail-oriented tasks. It may also help add some amusement to boring chores like doing the dishes or cleaning the house. Besides this elevated feeling of mindrace, Spliff's Strawberry can confer some stimulation on the body as well. Users may detect a buzzy, jittery energy that can be burnt off with anything from some moderate exercise to social interaction.

Even as the high wears on, this strain tends not to come with any lethargic physical effects, keeping consumers mobile and productive. Thanks to its mostly upbeat vibe, Spliff's Strawberry is recommended for consumption during the daytime; in the right set and setting, it can even be a potent wake-and-bake treat.
