What comes to your mind when you first hear the word snowball? Most people tend to think of a ball made of snow; however, for cannabis and CBD users, the word means something else.

Snowball is also the name of a cannabis plant. It is a potently relaxing hybrid strain that offers a great taste. The unique scent makes it instantly recognizable and the euphoric high makes it one of the most commonly used strains.

How Was Snowball Developed?

Snowball is a rare Indica dominant hybrid strain (with 70% Indica and 30% Sativa). Ethos Genetics created it through crossing the classic White Chem 4 OG to create flowers with big buds with a dense structure with huge resin production.

If you’re familiar with this delicious confection, you will be able to draw the connection between the plant and its name. When cultivated properly, trichomes cover the flowers of Snowball, and its cured buds look like they’ve been iced (hence the term Snowball). THC levels in Snowball are close to 22%, which is obvious from this strain’s appearance.

Effects

Snowball wax is traditionally used at night for relaxation, as it has a calming effect. Several users have described its effects as ‘potently relaxing’. This is probably because this indica-leaning strain has a significant terpene profile that includes caryophyllene, the only terpene known to interact with CB2 receptors.

Medical appointments

Humulene is another dominant terpene found in Snowball. It has been linked to reducing inflammation and some users have also used it for this purpose, while others take advantage of its ability to help sedate.

Unlike other cannabis strains that give users a euphoric high and can induce anxiety or paranoia, it is safe. It helps the user keep calm and reduce pain as well. This makes Snowball an ideal strain to use for medical purposes.

Side effects

Although there are no proven negative side effects of this strain, taking too much strain at one time is not recommended. The low-key and pleasant properties of Snowball may lead to difficulties in maintaining focus if a high dose is taken.

Why Should You Try It?

If you are used to smoking other stains, you might not find this strain fascinating. However, it offers a unique taste and flavor that can tempt you to try it. It never hurts to try something new!

Snowball’s high is potent in its physical appearance, so we recommend that only Indica lovers and seasoned users embark on this journey of ultimate calmness and relaxations.

Odor and flavor

A mix of fuel, citrus and cream coupled with light earthen tones; that is what defines Snowball’s odor and flavor. The pleasant aroma can immediately convince you to try this strain. Once you’ve smoked this strain, you will easily recognize it anywhere.

Physical appearance

This strain can create huge, dense yields of ice buds covered in trichomes. Sometimes, it also has purple flowers that can be eye-catching among white trichomes. These will be mentioned in most of the reviews you read. The physical appearance of this herb can make you fall in love with it more quickly.

Can You Grow Snowball?

This herb is suitable for all levels of growers. It is available in the form of feminized seeds only that can be cultivated both indoors and outdoors. Generally, the seeds yield 50-75 grams of Snowball per square feet.

    As long as you dont take high dose, it works great to improve concentration. I could do a lot of creative work after a joint. Thanks for this.

    A very potent strain that does what it says. I think the rating on wikileaf is unjustified. It deserves more buys and Im going to suggest to many others.
