Red Headed Stranger weed or, as it is also known, Red Hair weed, is a potent Sativa strain that has been and still remains incredibly popular among smokers around the world. This is a perfect weed for a loud party or a music festival – it makes your headlight, your body stimulated, and your senses sharpened. Red Headed Stranger strain is pure Sativa with THC levels ranging from 22 - 24% and CBD levels of 0.8 - 1.45%.

The weed we now know as the Red-Headed Stranger Sativa strain has been developed back in the 70s and named after the album by legendary Willie Nelson. This marijuana is a child strain to Willy’s Wonder and Haze cannabis – some of the best breeds ever known to smokers around the world. Redhead OG strain is one of the best choices for the morning or a mid-day sash with friends.

Taste and smell

This weed smells great, it’s spicy, fruity, and earthy at the same time. The first thing you smell is something that loosely reminds incense, then you might distinguish peppery and fruity notes. The flavor is a variable thing depending on many factors. The main factor here is a smoking device you use.

Possible effects

Redhead OG strain of weed gives you a strong punch, in the beginning, keeps you up and running throughout the trip, does not make you go nuts, and gives you the offset you’ll barely notice. This is a perfect combination of qualities for a Sativa weed with such dominant properties:

  • Focus
  • Creativity
  • Euphoria
  • Energy Boost
  • Uplift

It is appropriate for medical use by people who suffer from such conditions as:

  • stress disorder
  • PTSD

As said, Red Hair strain is an energizing weed that keeps you focused and fresh, so if you have any issues getting out of bed in the morning, just hit on that pot and you’ll be up in no time. It also improves your general mood, so if you have a depression or anxiety disorder, this weed might also be a good remedy, so hitting on that Red Hair bud is always a good idea.

Side effects may include dry eyes and mouth.

Grow info

First thing’s first, you need some Red Headed Stranger strain seeds. Secondly, you need a decent hydroponics station or a small garden. This plant is resilient to pests and diseases, so you don’t need to put too much care into it. This plant loves the hot and moist environment, so you might also want to have a greenhouse. If you know anything about Red Headed Stranger strain and Indica and % percentage of THC in the weed, you know it depends on the environment too, so grab some fertilizers and make sure your baby plant is comfortable in your little garden.

Red Headed Stranger Strain Cannabinoids

THC 20.5 - 23.25% 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 0.39 - 0.74% 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 0.29 - 0.84% 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 0.21 - 1.04% 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 0.26 - 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 0.26 - 1.01% 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.

Good to be used at daytime. It starts with uplifting my mood and giving me strength to do some work or to study. I become pretty focused and can concentrate on what Im doing. At the same time, its quite relaxing but without making me sleepy.

I tried several new sativas. Red Headed Stranger was quite a good choice. I didnt want to go overboard on a new weed (22%thc), so I took several hits and stopped. It improved my mood significantly and the high was very motivational. Cant review anything

It's not that easy on the lungs when you put it in a pipe, however if you drag slowly there's no problem. Also, the high takes just a few minutes to kick in, so you'll feel it after the first hit.
