THC 19.8 - 21.4% 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 0.38 - 0.63% 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 0.26 - 0.64% 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.

CBG 0.36 - 1.16% 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 0.08 - 0.16% 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 0.3 - 0.95% 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.

I’m a depressed person and anxious all the time. Kryptonite is what I use to calm myself down. It’s so good, people! Makes me wanna get it all the time. I stopped drinking a while ago and this is exactly what i needed. My friend told me, my doctor approved it, it’s all perfect. The hell with real medicine – this is it for me!

I like Killer Queen but I liked this one better. It’s a bit stronger and much better when you smoke it. The effects last a bit shorter, but I don’t mind that. It puts me to sleep after a while, so I take it at night. But it’s a bit hard to find in my area.

Kryptonite pot smells like fruits and is delicious. The smoke is hardly noticeable and it’s even pleasurable. The effects don’t hit too fast or too hard. It’s perfect. I’m calm and peaceful but not high, so I can paint. It brings out my artistic side. This is a smoke I’d recommend for daily use, not for the ones who want to party or stuff.

Kryptonite is nothing like Mendocino. I don’t like this one at all.

It’s the best thing for pain, I recommend it to everyone with headaches.

I disagree with everything. It doesn’t make you focused, it makes you dizzy and hungry and thirsty and all kinds of crap. I didn’t feel any good things when I smoked this dope. It’s not strong at all because I took a lot and nothing – only the bad things. I wouldn’t get it again.

Delicious, but it didn’t really do much for me. I need something stronger, I think.

Askgrowers, you were right about EVERYTHING. This is brilliant! Oh my god I’m so high right now! I feel like I can do anything in the world right now. I’m not in pain anymore and I’m hungry all the time, but what the hell! This is what I was looking for. Whooo!
