Nitrous is one of those strains that offer both creativity and relaxation because of their 50:50 ratio of Indica:Sativa. This is a potent cannabis strain with 22% of THC content. It has a very nice flavor profile that is sure to be appreciated by cannabis connoisseurs who favor sweet and earthy notes in their weed.

Main Effects of Nitrous

After taking some Nitrous, you will quickly start to feel a sense of relaxation wash over your body. Negative thoughts will fade away and happiness will take over. This relaxation also comes with a feeling of focus and creativity though, making it possible to get some work done. However, the ultimate outcome of smoking these buds is often couch-lock, so make sure to consume this weed during the afternoon or late evening when you can afford to get knocked down by its effects.

Because of such potent effects and its high THC content, this is not the best marijuana cultivar for beginners. It can sometimes cause side effects like fatigue, thirst, rapid heartbeat, and dryness of the eyes. Medical patients suffering from a lack of appetite, anxiety, Multiple Sclerosis, and migraines may take this strain to alleviate some of their symptoms.

Smell and Taste

If you're a fan of sweet notes in the aroma and taste of your weed, you will appreciate this one. It has very discernable notes of plums, roses, chestnuts, and coffee. These combine to create an overall sweet and yet complex flavor profile that will also work well if you want to bake some weed brownies for yourself.

The following terpenes are behind these flavors:

  • Myrcene – adds the sweetness of plums
  • Caryophyllene – brings the bitterness of coffee
  • Eucalyptol – adds strong notes of chestnuts and coffee
  • Limonene – brings various sweet notes.

Growing Information

Like most cannabis plants, you can grow Nitrous strain inside or outside as long as you have enough space. The plant can grow up to 80 inches in height so a good amount of space is necessary not only to accommodate its height but also to give it proper ventilation. The buds usually get ready to harvest in 53 to 64 days and growers report a yield of around 400 g/m2.
