Brazilian, which is also known as Brazilian Green, represents a powerful Sativa strain of mysterious origins. The only fact that can be stated with confidence is that it appeared in Brazil and is native to the region. At the same time, there is no appropriate information about its original breeders and lineage. This weed can impress both average smokers and connoisseurs with pretty decent THC levels ranging between 22-23%.

On the other hand, CBD content of approximately 0.28-0.39% surprises much less. As well as it can impress consumers, Brazilian strain can easily knock them up due to its extreme potency and powerful effects. That’s why this cannabis is mostly suitable only for veteran smokers when novices are recommended to find another strain or be particularly careful with this one. The complex terpene profile only complements the uniqueness of this weed, providing a complex connection of the following terpenes: linalool, pinene, geranial, myrcene, humulene, terpineol, and bisabolol.

Brazilian Strain Flavor Profile

Corresponding to the complexity of its terpene profile, the flavor profile produces a remarkable palette enriched in floweriness and earthiness, complemented by spicy-herbal and piney presence. With every toke, it’s easy to savor the taste that combines earthy and spicy-herbal flavors with noticeable notes of pine, sage, and lavender. The robust flavor of pine is produced with the cooperative efforts of linalool and geraniol. At the same time, geraniol also takes part in the appearance of spicy-herbal presence with the help of pinene. In turn, pinene is the one responsible for earthy and flowery notes.

Common Effects

Brazillian is a true Sativa, providing all expected effects and sometimes even more than that. The high doesn’t make the smoker wait for long and comes almost immediately, delivering a full package of wild euphoria and energy rush. That immense flow quickly raises the spirits and ensures a feeling of happiness. Afterward, all of that perfectly combines with a creativity boost, which gives lots of motivation and inspiration, increases talkativeness, and induces giggles. Regarding the influence on the body, Brazilian weed strain often gives tingles, and some reviewers even admit arousal properties.

This strain is commonly used for relieving the following disorders:

  • Lack of appetite
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Fatigue

Unfortunately, the side effects are also present, and they are especially dangerous for people suffering from anxiety and paranoia. While smoking Brazilian strain, one may face such effects as:

  • Thirst and dry mouth

  • Paranoia
  • Hunger

  • Rapid heartbeat

Brazilian Strain Cannabinoids

THC 22 - 23% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.28 - 0.39% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.15 - 0.16% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.06 - 0.13% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.02 - 0.17% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.15 - 0.41% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.
