Snowball is a hybrid marijuana strain that was created by Ethos Genetics. The Snowball strain is the child of parent strains The White and Chem 4 OG. It has a THC content ranging from 21% to 24% and offers relaxing effects as well as some creamy flavors.

Effects of Snowball

This cannabis strain has been reported by many users as relaxing. It also imbues users with a sense of euphoria along with creating a tingling feeling. If you want to feel calm and relax after a long day of work, this is the weed for you. The best time to smoke these buds would be later in the evening or at night. However, users also report that consuming this strain in smaller quantities helps them concentrate more.

Its THC ratio makes it a little unsuitable for beginners, especially because it can cause dizziness if not consumed carefully. Medical marijuana users can consume it for alleviating chronic pain or helping dial down their stress or anxiety.

Taste and Aroma

The terpene profile of this cannabis cultivar is quite diverse. It contains Caryophyllene as the dominant terpene. Other terpenes include Bisabolol, Carene, and Phellandrene. The result is mostly a sweet flavor and aroma. Cracking open the buds or smoking them will remind you of citrus and cream right away before some notes of fuel come through. There are flowery tones in the aroma. The presence of woody undertones adds to the sweetness even more.

Growing Information

Growing this plant from its seeds is quite easy. Whether you wish to plant the seeds indoors or outdoors, you will have a decent yield. It can give you 400 g/m2 of the product if grown indoors and around 550 g/m2 if grown outdoors. Snowball is a little vulnerable to mold, so it is important to provide it ventilation and light, especially during the later stages of vegetation. The flowering time for the plant is between 65 and 73 days.

Snowball Strain Cannabinoids

THC 20 - 22% 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 0.52 - 0.94% 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 0.12 - 0.66% 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 0.07 - 1.17% 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 0.27 - 0.32% 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 - 0.73% 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.

Snowball Terpene Profile

Carene 0.3% Carene (also known as Delta-3 carene) is a terpene found in rosemary, lemons, pines, and cedars, offering citrusy and cypress aroma. Studies on mice showed that carene provides anti-inflammatory effects, as well as promotes bone health and chronic pain relief.
Pinene 0.03% Pinene is one of the most widespread terpenes in nature, found in pine trees, basil, nutmeg, parsley, and rosemary. Cannabis containing terpene (alpha-pinene or α-pinene) boasts a strong pine scent. Pinene is responsible for anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and anti-anxiety effects.
Myrcene 0.1% Myrcene (also known as β-myrcene) is one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis, representing more than 20% of the modern marijuana terpene profile. Myrcene has a distinct earthy, musky flavor, resembling cloves. It is responsible for calming and soothing effects of weed. Myrcene is also found in hops, thyme, mango, lemongrass, guava melon.
Ocimene 0.02% Ocimene (derived from the Ancient Greek word Ocimum meaning basil) is a terpene with sweet and herbaceous flavors, also boasting citrusy and woody undertones. Naturally, ocimene occurs in mint, parsley, orchids, hops, kumquats, mangoes, basil, bergamot, lavender, and pepper. Offers antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties.
Humulene 0.05% Humulene (also known as α-humulene) is one of the major terpenes found in cannabis, contributing to woody, earthy, spicy, herbaceous, and, mainly, floral aromas of cannabis. Used in modern medicine, humulene offers anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and appetite suppressant effects, which have been well-researched by pharmaceutical companies.
Limonene 0.11% Limonene (also known as d-limonene) is the second most common terpene in nature and the third most common terpene in cannabis. It has a powerful citrus aroma and can be found in all citruses, including lemons, oranges, grapefruits, limes, juniper, etc. Limonene is known to elevate moods and provide anxiety, depression, and stress relief.

Linalool is known for its spicy and lavender aroma, bringing relaxation and calming effects. It is also said to provide anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that can be useful for athletes.
Bisabolol 0.13% Bisabolol (also known as α-Bisabolol or levomenol) is a lesser-known terpene found in cannabis. It contributes to anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant, antioxidant, anti-microbial, and analgesic properties of weed strains containing bisanol. Attentive smokers would be able to catch a nutty, fruity scent with herbal and floral undertones, with a tender trace of coconut.
Terpinolene 0.05% Terpinolene is one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis; however, It's usually presented in small quantities. Is responsible for piney, floral, herbaceous, and even a little bit citrusy aroma of cannabis. Terpinolene can be found in lilacs, nutmeg, and cumin. In cannabis, terpinolene contributes to the sensation of "freshness." Has the potential to reduce the risk of heart diseases.
Phellandrene 0.03% Phellandrene (also known as alpha- and beta-phellandrene) is one of the rare terpenes found in cannabis with antihyperalgesic and antidepressive properties. Phellandrene contributes to a minty, woody, and mildly citrus aroma in cannabis. Previously confused with limonene and pinene, phellandrene was eventually distinguished as a separate terpene common for eucalyptus. Also, it could be found in mint, dill, black pepper, cinnamon, parsley, pine, and lavender.
Caryophyllene 0.13% Caryophyllene (also known as beta or b caryophyllene) is a terpene found in many herbs and spices, such as black pepper, basil, rosemary, and oregano.

I tried Snowball for the first time a while ago. I thought it's overrated, however, I was wrong. It starts off slow, given its reputation, and then it starts to kick in gradually and takes you to a whole new level. Incredibly fun weed to smoke!

The strain delivers sedating effects making it ideal for unwinding. It has a relaxing lift that hits at the onset which leaves you feeling happy and with a hazy sense of well-being. It gives users a couch-lock once it settles in.
