Crescendo is a hybrid strain that is created by Ethos Genetics. The Crescendo strain is the child of three parents. These are Chemdog, Mandarin Cookies, and I-95. The resulting hybrid has a high THC content of 28% to 31%. Despite such a high THC content, the effects of this weed are pretty moderate and not overwhelming. This makes it a good weed to smoke pretty much whenever you want if you have a higher THC tolerance.

Taste and Aroma of Crescendo Strain

When you break apart these buds, you will sense an aroma of wood. This woody smell also has some pungent and skunky notes in it, along with the sweetness of berries. The taste is similar, with an overall sweet and earthy profile with some fruity notes. The following terpenes are responsible for this aroma and flavor profile:

  • Pinene
  • Phellandrene
  • Carene
  • Ocimene

Effects and Medical Uses

The main effects of this strain are:

  • Happiness
  • Energy Boost
  • Tingling

The effects take hold slowly and build up over time. The mind becomes very happy while the body gets a tingly sensation and starts to feel light. The body also relaxes physically while you become giddy and talkative.

Because of these effects, this cannabis is useful for medical patients suffering from issues like depression, chronic pain, stress, lack of sleep, or mood swings. Using too much of it can lead to a feeling of unnecessary concern and hunger.

Growing Information

Crescendo Strain Cannabinoids

THC 28.24 - 31.04% 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 0.22 - 7.04% 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 0.38 - 0.68% 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 0.09 - 0.58% 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 0.48 - 0.4% 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 0.26 - 1.04% 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.

Myrcene 0.21% Myrcene (also known as β-myrcene) is one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis, representing more than 20% of the modern marijuana terpene profile.

Ocimene 0.25% Ocimene (derived from the Ancient Greek word Ocimum meaning basil) is a terpene with sweet and herbaceous flavors, also boasting citrusy and woody undertones. Naturally, ocimene occurs in mint, parsley, orchids, hops, kumquats, mangoes, basil, bergamot, lavender, and pepper. Offers antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties.

Linalool is known for its spicy and lavender aroma, bringing relaxation and calming effects. It is also said to provide anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that can be useful for athletes.
Phellandrene 0.18% Phellandrene (also known as alpha- and beta-phellandrene) is one of the rare terpenes found in cannabis with antihyperalgesic and antidepressive properties. Phellandrene contributes to a minty, woody, and mildly citrus aroma in cannabis. Previously confused with limonene and pinene, phellandrene was eventually distinguished as a separate terpene common for eucalyptus. Also, it could be found in mint, dill, black pepper, cinnamon, parsley, pine, and lavender.
Caryophyllene 0.13% Caryophyllene (also known as beta or b caryophyllene) is a terpene found in many herbs and spices, such as black pepper, basil, rosemary, and oregano.
