Some breeders came up with the idea to cross the powerful Romulan and Afghani Bullrider weed, and they ended up with an Indica strain. Its name is closely related to the name of the famous American singer Ray Charles, whose songs are as high quality and amazing as the characteristics of this strain.

Ray Charles strain has an attractive sweet smell. Its buds produce a sour-sweet, skunky smell. However, the earthy wood flavors are more present on the exhale. The taste is not inferior to the smell, it feels like a sweet wine with a sharp aftertaste.

Ray Charles Main Effects

Pretty potent with up to 21% THC content, Ray Charles quickly, but gently put smokers into a sedative state, so it is best enjoyed as a soothing evening treat. The high starts with a creeping head buzz, the body gets tingly, and intense euphoria ensues with each puff. Users feel stoned and comfortably numb. Ray Charles strain has a long-lasting experience, around 2-3 hours of euphoric bliss. We wouldn't recommend it for being active, but it's a great kush to unwind after a busy day. Its sedative effect with a sleepy, relaxing effect makes people sleep like a rock.

Ray Charles Medical Effects

Ray Charles would be helpful in treating such conditions as insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain, and stress.

With each puff, it puts you gently in a sedative state. Also, it gives you a quick mood boost. Cool stuff!

The smell of RC is out of this world - you can discern apple, berry, skunk, cheese, spices, and a bunch of other flavors. Its a potent Indica strain with a pretty high thc level (about 20%). So, expect to get hyper relaxation and sedation. It can be help
