Mandarin Sunset Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19.75 - 21.75% 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 0.56 - 0.89% 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 - 0.84% 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 0.1 - 1.18% 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 0.21 - 0.32% 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 0.32 - 1.03% 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.

The market is flooded with citrusy weed so I thought this is just another one lemony, spicy kind . Luckily I was intrigued enough to try it. The best way I could describe it is charming and mystical. Also, I can understand why people praise the buzz. I enjoyed every session and hope to have more in the future.

If I have to recommend one strain, suitable for mornings, afternoons, or evenings. Potent, but not too strong. With both energizing and calming effect. Good for your body and mind, a long-lasting quick hitter with great aroma and taste… then I would most certainly recommend Mandarin Sunset. You’re welcome!

Indeed… the growers outdid themselves with this one! This strain is very close to perfection. Everything about it is so profound and elegant. I like to roll the joint, pour some wine and relax with happy thoughts. Always a very positive effect and slow calm down.

They mixed it soooo bloody well! Perfect Indica dominant mixture, with a fruity flavor and just the right amount of THC to give you that special feeling of calmness and serenity. You can use it solo or with someone, the effect is a bomb evey time!

Checked the THC on wikileaf… THC 23% and its perfect concentration for me. But in this review THC is 14 - 16%, why could there be such a difference?
