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 Strain

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. Nitrous strain 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.

Nitrous Strain Cannabinoids

THC 15 - 16% 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 0.99 - 1.12% 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 0.18 - 0.3% 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 0.02 - 0.12% 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.

CBN 0.14 - 0.24% 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 0.23 - 0.29% 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.
