Pomelo is one of the many creations of Cookies. It is an Indica-leaning marijuana strain that is created as a result of crossing Mandarin Sunset and GSC. The Pomelo strain comes with a THC content of around 22% and a CBD content of around 0.1%. With Linalool as the dominant terpene, this cannabis has a citrusy taste.

This weed is reported to cause energizing effects. When you smoke these buds, you will feel a sense of euphoria at first. The cerebral high will help you get ready for any social event or to get some work done. These effects last for quite some time before fading into physical relaxation. Since it doesn't cause the body to shut down completely, this may be a good option for an afternoon or evening smoke, especially for those smokers with a good THC tolerance. For beginners, though, it may prove to be a little too much to handle.

Because of its combination of energizing and calming effects, this cannabis can be useful for patients suffering from mood swings, muscular tension, chronic pain, and inflammation.

Aroma, Taste, and Appearance of Pomelo Strain

The three main terpenes found in this weed are:

  • Linalool
  • Limonene
  • Caryophyllene

What this combination translates to is an aroma that is citrusy as well as earthy. The buds will also remind you of the Pomelo fruit when you smell them. The sweet and sour notes of the aroma find their way into the taste as well. However, the taste has stronger notes of fresh soil with musky tones.

A well-cultivated batch of this cannabis plant will give you buds that are airy with a mint green color. Crystal-like trichomes cover the buds almost completely, almost giving them a glow. To contrast these light colors, orange pistils are also present on the buds.

Pomelo Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19.5 - 20.5% 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 0.76 - 1.02% 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 0.34 - 0.4% 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 0.08 - 0.15% 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 0.1 - 0.1% 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 0.02 - 0.15% 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.
