Royal Highness strain is fancy beyond its name. Its big, lime-green buds are beautiful, powerful, and attractive for both consumers and growers. As a 60% Sativa hybrid with an average THC level of 7.5%, it's great for novice recreational users. However, the CBD content of 10% also makes it great for medicinal use.

Royal Highness weed was developed by crossing Dance Hall and Respect. It delivers a euphoric cerebral rush, followed by a relaxed feeling of happiness. It's recommended for alleviating spasms, convulsions, and seizures, as well as chronic pain and anxiety.

The flavor is not too pleasant. It's similar to pungent cheese mixed with woody aroma notes. The scent is strong as well; the weed's skunky character hits you right away. The good news is that consumers can enjoy it in oil and wax forms, so they won't feel its pungent taste.

As a plant, it's moderately difficult to grow (requires a greenhouse environment), but it delivers a generous yield. It requires 8-9 weeks to flower.

Royal Highness cannabis strain won the third place at the 2016 Colorado Cannabis Cup in the Best CBD Flower category.

Royal Highness Strain Cannabinoids

THC 12.2 - 14.4% 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 2.24 - 2.4% 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 0.24 - 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 0.48 - 1.36% 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 0.29 - 0.22% 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 0.46 - 1.18% 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.

This mj is potent and has a strong smell. I prefer to use the oil and wax form of it to bypass the annoying odor. I only have to rub the oil on the part that hurts and I get instant relief. I like to use the oil or was than smoking the leaves.
