Red Velvet strain is created by an unknown breeder. This is a cross between the mystical but flamboyant Orange Velvet and Redrum. Both parental strains were quite potent and the Orange Velvet Sativa inherited their potency. The THC ratio is between 15% and 18%. THC levels are fairly low, ranging from 0.07% to 0.45%.

Type of High

The buzz has a sedative character. However, despite the relaxed body, the brain begins to work at a new speed, increasing sensory perception.

I can sense some simmilarities with a few OG plants i have smoked in the past. I only wish the cross breeding may have left Red Velvet with a little more potency than it already has. I mean it would be great for stoners if they do not over do it but as a seasoned user, i find myself looking for that extra kick you know?
