Red Dragon Strain Cannabinoids

THC 17.8 - 21.6% 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 0.75 - 1.07% 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 0.23 - 0.64% 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 0.28 - 0.62% 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 0.17 - 0.26% 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 - 0.62% 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.

Very powerful buzz creeps up on you and lasts long, typical of indica. Too much indica/CBD for me, gives me an indica hangover. If you like the indica effects this is a real seriously good strain. Pure sativa guys, like me, may not like it. Would love to try the Brazilian sativa parent! Lol, those days are long gone.

You cannot grasp the flavors correctly and yet it tastes good and shows very good energising effect that I came to slowly get used to and adore. I kind of prefer to have this kind of soft strains to take a few puffs during the day.

You take the weed and you become extremely sensitive to anything happening around you and thats no good thing!! That kind of sensory perception will create unwanted paranoia in me.

Im thinking that red dragon is actually the real deal. This weed has proven to be a good medicine for my muscle spasms and its simultaneously erratic and potent. It however makes my eyes dry and irritable.

Write your reply

the flower gave me a lift of sativa and kept me coasting for a while and when I finally came down, I had a relaxed night of sleep. I always find myself stressed and as a result lack sleep and this strain did what it is supposed to.

Here and also allbud says that this strain is supposed to relieve nausea but I had a different experience using it. It hit me hard and gave me overwhelming nausea even sounds made me nauseous. I didn’t like this strain, it was too intense and might be better for connoisseurs with high tolerance but it took me two bongs to get fucked!

Ironically, I went through chemo and the drug they used on me was called red dragon and afterwards to treat my pain after being discharged I used this marijuana. What a great coincidence, Red Dragons follow me everywhere.
