For those after evenly hybrid cannabis, the Rainbow strain with its colorful buds is worth trying out. This weed is the result of combining Blueberry and Dancehall strains and has around 18% of THC in it. With its balanced effects and low THC content, this is the kind of marijuana anyone can try out without any reservations.

Terpenes, Smell, and Taste of Rainbow

The dominant terpene in this weed is myrcene. It is accompanied by the following:

  • Carene – adding a berry flavor
  • Caryophyllene – adding some tropical notes
  • Valencene – bringing the kick of citrus
  • Linalool – introducing floral notes
  • Humulene – adding to the sweetness

The result is a pleasant combination of spicy and sweet notes in both the aroma and the flavor. The sweet notes comprise berries, pineapple, and other tropical fruits. There is also a hint of citrus and some flowery undertones. All of these sweet flavors are contrasted by a spicy sensation that adds more depth to the experience whether you smoke this cannabis or bake it in the form of a sweet treat.

Effects and Medical Uses

When you consume this marijuana, you will feel an instant sensation of upliftment and euphoria. It relaxes both the mind and the body without making consumers feel sedated. It creates an overall sense of happiness along with a tingling sensation. Some people also report falling into fits of giggling. Keeping in mind all of these fairly uplifting effects, this weed can be a good daytime option in small doses. It can also be a good one to try for beginners who don’t want to get knocked out. Just remember to keep some snacks near you because it can cause some serious munchies too.

Taking too much of the weed can cause some side effects like nervousness, paranoia, and dizziness. However, it can also be used by patients suffering from issues like chronic pain, stress, and depression to alleviate some of their symptoms.

Information for Growers

Growing your very own plant will require some prior experience as it can be a little challenging to take care of. The seeds can be planted indoors or outdoors, depending on what kind of space you have available. The buds are produced within 54 to 62 days and the plant provides a moderate yield of 400 g/m2 indoors and 550 g/m2 outdoors. Towards the end of the flowering period, you will see why the strain is named Rainbow when different colors start popping up.

Rainbow Strain Cannabinoids

THC 18 - 20.33% 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 0.34 - 0.82% 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 0.22 - 0.56% 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 0.22 - 1.01% 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 - 0.18% 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 - 0.69% 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.
