Medellin strain is a hybrid cannabis, which originates from the breeders at Lemonnade. Although it’s difficult to specify its lineage with confidence, Medellin is believed to be a descendant of two legendary strains – Wedding Cake and ChemDog. The primary cannabinoids are THC with an average level of 22% and CBD with nearly 0.27-0.54%. This weed is not only quite heavy-hitting but also rather smelly, so smoking it may be a better option for more experienced tokers than novices. By the way, this strain’s robust odor and the whole variety of flavors is the direct responsibility of the following terpenes:

  • Caryophyllene
  • Humulene
  • Myrcene
  • Limonene
  • Pinene
  • Linalool
  • Terpinolene
  • Ocimene

Medellin Strain Flavor Profile

When facing Medellin, prepare to be overwhelmed by the intense fragrance of dank earthiness and fuel with some minor lemony hints. The taste combines muskiness and earthiness, disclosing it with subtle fruity notes and a slight flowery flavor on the exhale. In this palette of flavors, humulene provides that subtle fruitiness, which resembles the tastes of pears and peaches. The flowery, violet-like presence is the fruit of cooperation between caryophyllene and myrcene. At the same time, caryophyllene is also the one that creates an almost indistinguishable hint of ammonia.

There are no seeds for this strain, but you can purchase seeds from the parent strain:

Most Common Effects and Medical Benefits

Medellin strain represents a perfect hybrid, which induces a mild physical relaxation with a noticeable energizing burst. The high is euphoric and pretty clear-headed, allowing the consumer to concentrate on necessary things and slightly enhancing creativity. Besides that, many reviewers admit that this weed quickly delivers a happy mood and significantly improves one’s talkativeness, sometimes even inducing giggles.

This cannabis ensures a pleasant experience that combines relaxation and uplift, making it a perfect choice for both doing necessary tasks as well as simply hanging out in the company of friends. Due to its effects, the most suitable time to enjoy Medellin is during the daytime or in the early afternoon. Worth mentioning that the smoke is quite harsh and may invoke coughing while the smell is easily distinguishable. These facts can become a matter of concern, so it’s better to pay attention to these peculiarities in advance.

At the same time, it would be unforgivable not to inform about Medellin’s medicinal properties. This strain can be a good choice for alleviating:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Slight pain-numbing effects

On the other hand, the smoker might encounter the following side-effects:

  • Dry eyes
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Dizziness

Info for Growers

The Medellin weed strain can be grown indoors and outdoors with an average height ranging within 30-60 inches. The flowering cycle takes about 52-64 days when the most suitable time for harvest is 59 days. Afterward, it rewards the yield of approximately 1-2 Oz/Ft² (~400 g/m²) indoors and 10-15 Oz/plant (~400 g/plant) outdoors. If you like Medellin but want to try a hybrid with a sleepy effect, you can try garlic budder grow. It has a fruit flavor too.

One thing I hate is having to wait for close to three months to have a smoke of my grown cannabis. Not with this one though, Two minths were barely up when I noticed them flowering. That caught my sight and within weeks they were ready for processing. The high was worth all the pruning and watering.

True to the word Vivian Powell is right. Everytime I eat my brownies made with Medellin I feel this general uplifting mood that lasts for long. My colleagues think I am chipper and happier on days that I take these brownies. I even end up chatting them up in the break room.

The most appealing thing about Medellin is how much it acts like a typical Indica. The high is something but the relief you get from pain and any worries is even BETTER. i half expected to feel drowsy but instead, it was this unbelievable calm and relaxation. Of course it impressed me.

Compared to Garlic Budder, I feel that this one leads to a more upbeat and euphoric high. This is comthing that I appreciate especially when I am dancing on fridays. I take a few hits from a joint and when I am up on stage there is nothing else going on apart from me moving my body this way and that way.

I mean I get why people love these strains but I need some more CBD for me to try a bud. I bake them into cookies or gummies and use this whenever i feel stressed or anxious. CBD levels were unsatisfactory for me if I am being honest.
