What Is Pennywise Strain?
If you’re a Stephen King fan, the name “Pennywise” will probably generate fear and excitement. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Stephen King’s “It” (a book and then a movie,) Pennywise is the main character who is basically a terrifying clown that keeps on killing people.
Surprisingly, the first impression is often incorrect because this strain is everything but scary. Unlike the terrifying clown, who will often induce fear and stress, this particular cannabis strain will help you eliminate stress, anxiety, and worries.
The creator of the Pennywise cannabis is Subscool’s The Dank, a popular cannabis seeds company that constantly invents new weed seeds, oil, wax, and kush ”hits”. We have a cross between Jack the Ripper and Harlequin, a beautiful combination that lends the “killer” name. The only difference is that Pennywise hits the fears, worries, and all the stress that you’re confronting and allows you to be at peace.
Due to the high concentration of CBD content, this is one of the strains that is mostly recommended to medical patients rather than recreational users. However, free will is our right folks, so let us manifest it properly.
Nevertheless, since the balance between THC content and the CBD content is a bit “unfair”, you should not expect incredible psychoactive effects. They’ll be milder, though your body will be way more relaxed compared to body highs produced by other strains.
Pennywise Weed – The Regular Effects
As you can see in the above picture, the typically reported effects are a sense of focus, creativity, energy, and euphoria.
After testing it myself a couple of times and checking other sources that presented both the effects and the, I compiled the four most commonly met effects produced by the Pennywise strain.
Clear-headed and lucid
The first effect that you’ll experience is a clear-headed and lucid mind. Your thoughts will suddenly stop rushing (in case they do), the self-criticism begins to become milder, and you simply feel relaxed and clear.
Your creativity immediately is immediately growing as you feel a rush of happiness/euphoria through the body. In case you’re dealing with creative work, this is a great strain that can help you come up with brilliant ideas. Make sure you’re in a relaxed setting and mood before you give it a go.
What is total relaxation? As the high kicks in even further, you’ll feel a strong body relaxation. If you keep your mind relaxed and your body relaxes too, you’ll experience what I call “total relaxation”.
The Pennywise strain is the perfect choice if you want to relax after a hard day at work, and a perfect choice whenever you feel artistic, creative, or in the learning mode. As a quick tip that comes from personal experience, combine the high with a cup of coffee and you’ll be able to enter “study mode” in a matter of a few minutes!
Couch-locked or sleepy
Sometimes, if you’re relatively tired and mentally exhausted, Pennywise will put you to sleep immediately. When your thoughts stop running around, you’ll be able to enter the REM sleep and then go further on your sleep journey until you have to wake up again and start again.
Couch-locked is another reported effect, which means that you won’t have the mood or the energy to do physical things. You’ll rather sit, relax, meditate, watch TV, read a book, or do anything that doesn’t require physical stimulation.
The Medical Effects Of Pennywise Cannabis
Since the Pennywise cannabis strain is relatively 1:1 on the CBD/THC ratio but a bit more CBD dominant, it is a perfect choice for medical patients who are looking for the perfect relaxation, both mentally and physically.
Alleviates serious medical conditions like PTSD, arthritis, and epilepsy.
One of the most important things to note about the Pennywise weed is that its complex types and combinations of cannabinoids are incredibly useful for today’s modern medical problems.
Serious conditions like PTSD, epilepsy, and arthritis can be countered with natural tools like Pennywise cannabis, a popular medical strain that alleviates and often eliminates the manifestation of these medical conditions.
Pennywise has a truly intriguing terpene profile. Interesting fact, this strain has in its composition more than 0,5% of the most well-known terpenes in the world.
I’ve compiled a list with the five primary terpenes that also presents the most common and the most useful benefits:
Alpha-Pinene is a well-known terpene that is known to be growing in pine trees. Its primary purpose and responsibility is the pine flavor and the smell of various strains. Studies suggest that it combats inflammation, so it can be used as an anti-inflammatory natural ingredient.
If you ever tasted hops, you’ll know exactly the taste of this terpene. The hop is a relation to the cannabis/marijuana plant and it is a well-known relaxation stimulant that reduces anxiety and stress. It is often used by psychiatrists to treat depression.
A hint of spice combined with a floral scent – that is the quick definition of Linalool. It primarily modulates the gross motor movement; thus, it increases the neural functions. Moreover, it also produces anti-inflammatory effects.
One of the most popular terpenes, found in a thousand types of strains, Beta-Myrcene relaxes your muscles and acts as a sedative.
If you’re wondering where the lemon scent and taste of Pennywise comes from, the answer is Limonene. This terpene is responsible for these particular effects, and it is also the most abundant terpene in a Pennywise bud. It is said that it has weight-loss proprieties and can treat bronchial infections.
Pennywise Strain – General Characteristics
Here are a few more general characteristics about the Pennywise weed:
Pennywise strain appearance
The Pennywise flower is relatively small to medium in terms of size. Chunky and thick formations and they give the impression of an indica-type of weed that is tense and very well compacted.
The fragrance is extremely interesting, a combination of lemon, hints of pepper, bubblegum, and coffee-like notes. When the bud is completely cured and then finally dried, they have an earthy odor that makes you think of soil and nature.
Most people would say that Pennywise tastes as it smells. However, most people omit the amazing fruity lemon flavor that is both delicious and citrusy-like. That is the taste that you experience at every puff. When you exhale, you’ll feel the pepper notes and the sour sensation that’s accompanied by a cloud of harsh and thick smoke.
- Harlequin. More uplifting.
- Lemon Garlic OG. More caryophyllene.
- OG Kush.
- LA Confidential.
- NYC Diesel.
- Blackberry Kush
Pennywise is an excellent strain that managed to capture a lot of attention throughout the last years and even months. Its popularity grows both among recreational users and medical patients, mostly because it provides super-useful proprieties that many people can benefit from in many types of different situations.
Overall, opt for this excellent choice once and you’ll definitely know if you’ll come back for more later. As I say to most people – every strain “strikes” uniquely depending on the uniqueness of the person’s mind. Therefore, you’ve got to try first before developing an opinion. Deep, but think about it!
