Verde Electric is a well-balanced hybrid with a uniquely complex flavor profile. Although its original breeders are not well documented, this bud is known to be a cross between landrace sativa Durban Poison, resinous Platinum OG, and tasty Sherbert. These very different strains combine to yield eye-catching flowers with a relaxing, multi-faceted high. Verde Electric's THC levels has been measured at between 15% and 24%.
Verde Electric is distinguished by its medium to large flowers which adhere in rounded, pellet-like formations. These buds have a tight, characteristically indica structure, with a dense core and small leaves that curl tightly inward. The leaves themselves are more of a mossy green than the electric green that the strain's name would imply. Finally, translucent amber-colored trichomes cover these leaves, making them very difficult to break up by hand.
When properly cured, Verde Electric's flowers give off some woodsy notes of cedar. On closer inspection, there's also a bright scent of cherry peeking through. Meanwhile grinding up the buds releases a dank and skunky odor. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Verde Electric burns with an acrid smoke that may trigger a coughing fit. This harsh smoke tastes sweet and fruity on the exhale, though.
Verde Electric tends to strike smokers quickly, increasing blood pressure to the face. This can result in a flushing in the cheeks as well as a feeling of pressure around the temples. Soon after, smokers may notice some distortion in their sensory perception. Sounds and colors can take on a new dimension and intensity; trippy phenomena like a sense of time dilation and a flattening of visual perspective are also commonly reported. These psychedelic effects can be pushed even further by turning on some spacey music or a visually-engaging movie. Meanwhile, consumers who are feeling more productive can tune into Verde Electric's feeling of mental stimulation, characterized by deep, analytical thinking and a tendency toward free association. This state of mind may be a good way to plow through complicated, work-related tasks. It can also add some background color to otherwise boring activities like running errands or doing the dishes. Within some time, Verde Electric's physical relaxation begins to kick in, with a suddenly weighty feeling in the eyelids and limbs. While it may not immobilize the user, this palpable body stone will at least make them somewhat more aware of their bodies and movements. This one-two punch of physical and mental stimulation can lend itself to activities that require full coordination, including gaming, exercise, and sex. As the high wears on or as dosage is boosted, Verde Electric's slow, melting effects may progress into full-on couchlock, rendering the user unable (and unwilling) to do much more than kick back and do some binge-watching. Because of its gradual decline in stimulation, Verde Electric is best enjoyed between afternoon and evening.
Verde Electric can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its clear-eyed concentration can help those with attention deficit disorders to focus on a single task. The strain's warm euphoria can also temporarily abate the symptoms of mild to moderate stress or depression. Physiologically speaking, it can dull chronic, disease-related pain as well as less serious afflictions like headaches or nausea. Because its early cerebral energy can prove overwhelming in the wrong set and setting, Verde Electric is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of Verde Electric are not available for sale online. Prospective home growers should obtain clippings of mature plants from a trusted source in order to foster $$clones.$$ The strain can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Plants tend to be short and bushy and gardeners may need to occasionally trim away any broad, light-blocking fan leaves that can inhibit the flowering of low-growing nodes. Verde Electric flowers within about 9 weeks when grown indoors.
Verde Electric makes a good option for sativa and indica lovers alike. Its heady aroma also makes it worth pursuing by connoisseurs of cannabis terpenes.
