All About Chernobyl Cannabis Strain


Chernobyl is not only the place of the most terrifying nuclear disaster in the history of mankind but also the name of a truly crazy weed. This strain is an awesome weed that produces an extraordinary effect on your cerebral activity and makes you feel really good for a couple of hours. Chernobyl strain is a potent but really soft strain that does not make you go full insane and just gently sets you in a mood for some good time and some fun party.

Subcool’s the Dank first hosted The Chernobyl Strain in Seattle. They crossed Trainwreck, Trinity, and Jack the Ripper to create a 100% Sativa.

The Chernobyl’s Main Taste

This cannabis is dominated by limonene, terpinolene, and myrcene. Most often, smokers talked about the smell of citrus and herbs, but the taste is slightly different. There are such flavors:

The taste depends on the smoking method you prefer to use. That’s totally normal that a pipe produces an unpleasant burned taste that irritates the back of throat. A good old bong filled with cold water and some ice would produce a much softer and much more pleasant smoke you’ll be able to taste and actually enjoy.

How Does It Affect the Body

The high has a cerebral character. The THC level is 22-26% of the content, therefore this strain is not suitable for beginners. Moreover, it is not recommended for users with paranoia or obsessive disorder. This cannabis is a powerful stimulant that energizes and lifts your mood. However, there are side effects, such as paranoia and insomnia. Despite this, medicine often uses The Chernobyl bud to relieve:

  • Chronic Pain
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Migraines
  • Stress

Growing Tips

The plant requires some care and attention, so before growing, it is better to consult with professionals. The Chernobyl is very vulnerable. It is best to use a hydroponic station and apply the correct fertilizers. Flowering time takes 7-9 weeks. The leaves are this acid-green color, and the buds are just crazy large with all those little orange hairs and strings all around. The plant itself is not too high nor is it too wide – just regular size. It looks good and smells even better.


How do I know when my Chernobyl strain is ready to harvest?

Chernobyl strain flowering time is somewhere around 7 to 9 weeks.

Chernobyl strain how much Sativa and Indica

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.

Is It useful for cooking?

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.

What are the similar strains?

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.
