Chernobyl Strain Information

Main Effects of Chernobyl

Consuming Chernobyl will give you a cerebral high, whether you prefer to smoke it or use its oil in an edible. The weed will put you in a positive and uplifted mood and can also make you more focused for some time. Throughout the experience, you will feel sedated and relaxed, which is why evening might be the best time to use it.

This marijuana can cause users to feel paranoid and overly thirsty.

This cannabis is commonly used to treat the following medical conditions:

Taste and Aroma

The following terpenes can be found in this marijuana:

  • Myrcene
  • Limonene
  • Linalool
  • Camphene
  • Phellandrene

The resulting flavor is that of citrus and lime with a sweet earthiness to complement it. The aroma is similar to the taste, making it a very pleasant strain to smoke.

Growing Tips

The seeds of this cannabis are easy to grow, but they do require some attention throughout their growing period. While the plant can be grown indoors as well, it might be a better idea to grow it outdoors because of its tall height. It takes around 50-65 days to mature and give you some more buds to smoke.


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.
