Papaya Strain Growing Review

This Indica hybrid is one of those weed variants that are difficult to grow. Veteran and professional growers use the Sea of Green method for growing.

When using the Sea of Green method to grow this bud, it develops around 350 g – 450 g per square meters. Once the buds are ripe, they become sticky and filled with crystalline lights. If you want to get the best aroma and flavor, you should grow your Papaya outdoors. The normal flowering period for Papaya is short. It would typically end within eight weeks and can produce medium yield up to 150 g when you grow indoors and up to 800 g from outdoor harvests.

You should harvest around October if you are growing outdoors.

The Papaya grows short with a beautiful bush and potent buds that do not get too wide or too tall. Lightning makes the most significant difference in yield if you are growing indoors.

Papaya Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19 - 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 0.56 - 0.84% 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 0.21 - 0.6% 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 0.12 - 1.2% 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 0.03 - 0.2% 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 0.2 - 0.92% 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 grew a clone of Papaya in late season. This plant grew like single. Big Cola (Bud) made me wow happy. It had 7 branches from stem. At one point it had snowy white buds and hot Pink hairs. I had a great experience growing this maryjane. I started to grow June 29th in the Western Hemisphere/Northern thank the Virgin Mary for a great 1 pound harvest.

This MJ is more medicinal than recreation. If you have chronic pains, severe anxiety and depression this strain is the best. Its highly recommended as its effects have healing benefits. Have known of this powerful strain for over 3 years now.

Has great body and head relaxation. But you have to watch the amount as overdosing will certainly give you unwanted results. It causes heavy head and sedating effects, that’s why I prefer using it in the evening after doing all my work.

I make papaya cookies and I have to admit, this is my best snack! I didn’t like the smoke and thought of trying baking it. They are relaxing and great for evening use. They have a sedating effect that helps me with insomnia. I highly recommend this strain for sleep.

I am somewhat of cannabis connoiseur and believe me when I say this kush is one of the very best strains. The 25% THC contributes to a great high accompanies by an excellent taste. I first smoked this kush with a bong and the aroma just filled the whole room.

Papaya is by far the greatest strain I have smoked in my life personally. The reason being that all of its aspects are favorable towards me. Including the smoking experience, the smoke did not choke me but it was easygoing.

This kush is one of the best tasting and smelling marijuana strains in the market. The aroma is quite distinct and can be smelled right away when unpacking it. A great taste is unlocked once you have sparked it.

Papaya thrives best in a controlled environment. You can also grow it outdoors even though the yield will not be as high as that of indoor cultivation. As long as you have the seeds with you, cultivation is easy regardless of whether you are a novice or experienced grower. It has a flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks.
