Garlic weed strain, which is also known as Garlic Bud or Garlic Kush, is a pure Indica strain. It is a descendant of Afghani genetics that emerged thankfully to Sensi Seeds in the '90s.

The kush contains a pretty high THC level that ranges between 15-21%. Due to its high potency and odd flavors, it might not be the best choice for novice smokers. Smoking Garlic is recommended during nighttime because of its strong sedative properties.

It emits a strong, spicy aroma, resembling garlic with some earthy hints, which is a real explanation for the appearance of this strain's name. When inhaling, the smoke provides a tangy musky taste combined with a slight herbal and woody presence that balances it.

Typical Effects

Despite it's not the most delicious cannabis strain, its properties pay double. Right after the first toke, it shows its properties:

As a beginner i was a bit anxious about trying a strain with over 15% THC buit my worries are gone. It is well balanced in a way that I wasn't drowning in the high. Instead i felt calm and relaxed in a way that had me concentrating on my school work. by the time it was wearing off, I had been immersed in a book for like three hours straight and i can remember eveything I read.

Before i get fully fledged as a pot connosseur all I can say is that this baby is the bomb. i try not giving advice people, but as a stoner that has tried a lot of plants this one is def worth everyone's time. I have been using it for fun and also for my migraines and all i can say is that it delivers like the potent bugger it is.

Some time in the spring my dad started complaining of back aches that just kept accelerating. We did some research and found that cannabis helps and started trying out different strains. We have settled for Garlic for a while. mostly because it has the right CBD and THC to make his pain DISSAPPEAR. I mean, he is back at mowing lawns when the edibvles kick in, something he had absolutely given up on.

Highly intoxicating. Keeled over in laughter right after smoking. A high with a strong excitable start, easing into a mellow giggly calm. Did not have the chance to get a whiff of the aroma (or wasn't paying attention), so cannot comment on the smell. Highly recommend.

I would buy this again. It puts me in a good mood and kills all pain in my body. Thats RELIEF! Also great for insomnia and gives a restful sleep. The only challenge is to find some dispensary near me that sells it.

Burns evenly and gives intense smoke. Its a nice weed for stoners who like having a full body high. U feel the buzz just after a few tokes and then u have a complete relaxation. I plan on getting seeds and growing this on my own - they say it gives a dec

Not actually the flavor and aftertaste that I like. Its extremely pungent and harsh. But veterans and connoisseurs may like it....

Highly sedative. Can’t recommend it for activities. Paul P, I cant tell it smells like garlic to me.

One of popular strains due to its Afghani genetics. As a powerful Indica, it does the job. It has its name for a reason - the smell of the strain is spicy reminding me of garlic with distinct hints of earth and ammonia.
