Hibiscus Sunrise is a slightly Indica dominant hybrid that is only suitable for seasoned smokers in terms of its potency. Colorado Seed Inc created this cross between Hawaiian Sunrise and Gupta Kush. Consumers often refer to this cannabis as "Beach Chair Weed" because it can make you relaxed yet energetic. Thanks to the terpenes, cannabis has an unrivaled mix of smells and tastes. 

For example, the grapefruit and cheese aromas are due to the terpenes Myrcene and Caryophyllene. Humulene is responsible for the taste of tobacco and lemon. And the mix of all three terpenes creates the perfect strawberry flavor. The buds of the Hibiscus Sunrise strain are grape-shaped. These are green pieces with bright orange hairs that are covered with snow-white trichomes.

i agree with other reviewers that hibiscus sunrise gives energy but there was one downside. I got drowsy and my migraine got worse after smoking. Is this a common negative reaction?
