With a name that sounds like a fast-paced amusement park ride, Turbo Mind Warp hints at high-octane mental effects. Luckily, this sativa-dominant hybrid doesn't disappoint, offering a cerebral high and a pleasant flavor to boot. Created by California-based breeders MTG Seeds, Turbo Mind Warp is a cross between two of their own proprietary strains, Mendo Mind Warp and Turbo Diesel. Its THC content has been measured at between 18% and 28%.
Turbo Mind Warp impresses right off the bat with medium-sized but very colorful flowers. These buds have a sativa-inflected internal structure, with long, wispy leaves that twist outward at their margins. These fluffy-looking nugs are a pale shade of sage green and are wound through with orange and, occasionally, vivid pink pistils. Finally, a dense blanket of translucent white trichomes covers all visible surfaces of Turbo Mind Warp's chunky flowers.
A first whiff of Turbo Mind Warp's buds will detect a mostly sweet scent with some faint herbal notes. A deeper whiff may pick up on some musky undertones as well. When ground up or pulled apart, these flowers release some pungent fumes of diesel, likely passed on from parent strain Turbo Diesel. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, meanwhile, Turbo Mind Warp burns with a thick, astringent smoke that isn't exactly easy on the palate. As they exhale (or cough), users may detect some lingering earthy and sour flavors.
Turbo Mind Warp doesn't waste any time before unveiling its effects. Soon after toking, smokers may experience some strange facial tics like a twitching around the lower forehead and temples. These physical effects are followed up by mental ones, in which users may find their thoughts moving more quickly than usual. Ideas may seem to take on a new intensity and consumers may be prone to pointing out unexpected or inexplicable connections between seemingly unrelated things. This focused, cerebral mindset can be a great way to harness productivity, whether you're working on detailed, analytical tasks or mundane chores like laundry. Turbo Mind Warp may also encourage nontraditional creative thinking, facilitating artistic projects or brainstorming sessions. Alternatively, smokers can just enjoy the background buzz that this strain provides while going about their daily tasks.
After about an hour (or sooner, if dosage is increased), Turbo Mind Warp exerts some subtle physical effects that can change the consumer's mood somewhat. Eyelids may begin to droop and a tingly, weighty feeling can creep into the limbs, slowing down any previously active users; those who are out and about may suddenly find themselves longing for the comforts of home. While Turbo Mind Warp's mental acuity is still present at this point, smokers may find themselves robbed of some of their earlier motivation or energy. As such, this phase of the high is best spent engaging in passive activities like board games with friends.
Turbo Mind Warp's multidimensional high can have a broad range of uses for medical cannabis patients. Its ability to instill focus can help those with attention deficit disorders to work on one task a time. Additionally, its mood-enhancing vibe may temporarily lift the clouds of mild to moderate stress and depression. On the physical side of the spectrum, Turbo Mind Warp can be an analgesic for deep-seated aches and pains as well as for inflammation-related discomforts like headaches. The strain's tendency to encourage the munchies can also be a great appetite stimulant for those dealing with diminished hunger due to disease or medication. However, because its cerebral effects can be overpowering and may lead to paranoia in the wrong set and setting, Turbo Mind Warp is not recommended for those who have less experience with THC or who are prone to panic.
Seeds of Turbo Mind Warp are available online for those looking to grow the strain at home. It can be successfully cultivated indoors or out, although outdoor growing requires a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. These medium-height plants can be somewhat branchy and may call for regular pruning, especially by indoor growers with limited space. Turbo Mind Warp, which can be resistant to adverse conditions like mold, flowers within about 9 to 10 weeks indoors and is ready for harvest in October when grown outdoors. It offers a high yield of buds at maturity.
An ideal choice for sativa fans who want to achieve some measure of relaxation, Turbo Mind Warp is a potent and well-bred strain.
