Flo marijuana strain or as it is also commonly referred to, DJ Flo, is a potent hybrid strain that possesses defined domination of Sativa weed. This stuff has been popular in Colorado since the late 90s, and now it is one of the most renowned strains of weed across the US. The main feature of the Colorado Flo is its strong onset. It kicks in really hard and keeps you energized for at least two hours making it a perfect party weed and a good remedy for mid-day fatigue. The strain contains 17-19% THC.

The history of the DJ Flo strain began in Colorado back in 1996 by Dutch Passion. This weed has become an instant hit among the young people in the area, and since then, it has grown even more popular across the US and in Canada. This is a hybrid breed whose parent strains are Purple Thai and Afghani Indica. This amazing combination of two potent strains has given the world this crazy hybrid with predominant Sativa strain and this typical Indica offset that makes you feel relaxed and calm.

FLO Most Common Properties

As said, this weed produces an energizing effect, but it is not overwhelming, so you can keep the clarity of thought throughout your trip. This flow strain kicks in real fast, you might even feel the effect in less than a minute after hitting on that blunt but it does not knock you off your feet; it just keeps you boosted up for action. If you feel fatigued in the middle of the day, just smoke on that Flo flower and keep up with your daily activities. Here are the most common effects of that weed:

The only downside is mouth dryness, so have a bottle of juice around or any other drink of your choice to keep yourself hydrated. You might also want to pack on some snacks because that weed is going to make you hungry, that’s for sure.

Medical Applications

Flo is one of the weeds that are great for medical use. Of course, you need to first consult with your doctor, and only then should you use marijuana of any strain as a remedy. In case your doctor approves that, you can use Flo weed strain for such conditions as:

  • Fatigue
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • PTSD
  • Inflammation

Taste and Smell

The smell of the weed is quite peculiar. It smells of citrus and herbs with a light touch of peppery notes. This is a strong smell, a smell you can sense from far away, and it is awesome. If you want to smoke this weed outdoors, just know that everyone around is going to know you are smoking weed.

The flavor of the smoke, as always, depends on the smoking device you choose. There’s a difference between how the weed tastes when smoked from the pipe and when smoked from the bong. If you use a pipe, prepare for the bitter and unpleasant flavor that makes you cough. The bong will produce a much softer smoke that will grant you with those citrusy flavors.

Grow Review

The FLO strain is not very demanding in growing. It requires some space or a hydroponics station to grow your stuff indoors. The Flo flower time is about 8.5 weeks, which is not too long compared to other strains.

Flo Strain Cannabinoids

THC 15.8 - 18% 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 0.3 - 0.6% 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 0.29 - 0.65% 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 0.14 - 0.92% 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 0.06 - 0.21% 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 0.17 - 0.84% 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.
