Chernobyl strain flowering time is somewhere around 7 to 9 weeks.
This is a hybrid that is inclined towards Sativa – it is hard to give you a precise proportion, but let’s say it’s 80% Sativa and 20% Indica.
Can you cook with the Chernobyl strain weed? Yes, you can. Should you cook with the Chernobyl strain? Yes, and a hundred times more yes, you should! This weed is perfect for making edibles, cookies, brownies, and all that good stuff you know and love. Chernobyl strain and edibles are a match made in heaven, so it is totally recommended that you use this cannabis strain for cooking. Be cautious though, it is a rather potent weed, so you don’t want to overdo it with the buds, go for roughly 4 to 6 grams per one kilo of product, that would be enough to give you a positive experience.
Talking of similar strains, I can think of such classic breeds as Jack Herer, Durban Poison, and the Ghost Train Haze. These strains do not only produce a similar effect on the smoker, but they also smell and taste kinda similar. For the unprepared smoker, these weeds might even feel like the same thing, but if you are an experienced smoker, you’ll clearly see, feel, and smell the differences between those different strains of weed.
