Understanding the Nature and Essence of The Somari Weed Strain
I am a strong supporter of individual smoking sessions. I enjoy smoking with other people but I also love smoking alone. There’s something special about experiencing different types of marijuana on your own. This way, in my opinion, you can get the most accurate impression of what you’re smoking. And boy, oh boy, did I have a good time with the Soma Labs’ top tier product! They managed to pack together NYCD, Buddha’s Sister and Kushadelic, obtaining one amazing hybrid.
What is the history of Somari?
2013, Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam (the Oscars of weed). Soma’s Sacred Seeds wins the 1st place in the hybrid category with the SomaRi hybrid. The company was already famous after winning prizes from 1999 to 2004 every year. They combined their NYC Diesel, their Buddha’s Sister (both award-winning strains) with the popular Kushadelic. The result was a bud with 70% Indica and 30% Sativa, with a potent THC level of 20% above the average, but a low CBD level. Ever since then, this powerhouse of THC remained rare and elusive, is pretty hard to find.
The best part of this hybrid is the high (isn’t it always?). The feeling you get after smoking the weed is exactly what I’m looking for as an experienced smoker. The high creeps on you pretty fast. At first, you’ll feel a cerebral rush. Everything comes alive in your mind: happiness and focus in particular. You’ll become active and even talkative if you’re not alone. After the initial rush, your focus will slowly fade away. The Somari high is long-lasting and lazy. The high percentage of THC will make you feel like you become one with the couch. After that, you’ll be inclined towards reflection and introspection. Some users report vivid psychedelic experiences, even visions.
Is it good for medical use?
In terms of medical effects, for experienced users, it is a great stress and pain reliever. Somari is good for chronic pain, appetite loss, and inflammation. In the middle of the high, you’ll feel like there’s no worry in the entire world. When I was experimenting with the full effect of the weed, I honestly felt like I was floating.
What are the negative effects?
I would not recommend this particular strain to inexperienced users. The high THC content and the psychedelic tendencies of Somari strain makes it less suitable for inexperienced users. Casual smokers might experiment side effects like anxiety when trying this hybrid. The problem with really strong cannabis is that the sensation it offers might be overwhelming for people who are not used to the high. And once you’re overwhelmed it’s very easy for anxiety to creep in. So, the safe bet is to smoke Somari when you’re familiar with weed.
What are the reasons for choosing this kush?
To be honest, at first, I tried this strain because I’ve heard so much about it. It’s pedigree alone made me buy an ounce. But for me, someone who smokes daily for some years now, it’s the best possible choice. First and foremost, the THC level makes it suitable for regular smokers. Having 20% more THC than the average weed strain makes it a sure bet for everyone looking to get high. Another attractive part of the Somari is the high. I’m always looking for introspection when smoking, and this bud seriously delivered that.
What is the aspect of the bud?
If you’re a cannabis enthusiast, looking at a Somari bud will tell you what is going on with its lineage. It looks a lot like one of its parents: Buddha’s Sister. The deep green and the red hairs make the rock-hard nuggets look gorgeous. The trichomes create a beautiful contrast with the green of the plant.
How are the Taste & the Flavor?
If Somari pot looks like Buddha’s Sister, it tastes and smells like the New York Diesel and gets you high like the Kushadelic. The dominant smell is that of citrus with a dash of diesel. After you lit the joint on fire, a strong scent of grapefruit will fill the room. The taste is the same: grapefruit. The whole smoking experience is consistent in taste and flavor, making it highly enjoyable.
What are the overall qualities?
There’s a lot of praise to be given to Soma Seeds. They made a bud with amazing taste and flavor, packed with a strong high. All the qualities of this hybrid blend, creating a symphony of high. It’s a pleasure to smoke the Somari and to enjoy its effects. I would choose this particular strain for late evening smoking sessions because the length of the high is around 3 hours.
Who is it suited for?
I’ll say this again because it’s important. This bud is suited for experienced smokers who are used to getting high. Even for medicinal purposes, I would not recommend Somari to inexperienced smokers. The potency of the high might be too much to handle for some people. If you’re looking for a strong high, sedative effects and psychedelic tendencies, this hybrid should be your choice.
What do the growers think?
Growers get excited about Somari, because of the many branches it grows. This mildew-resistant hybrid flowers in 10 weeks. The minimum yield is around 40 grams. Every grower will be more than pleased to cultivate this award-winning strain, describing the plants as wonderful: oil, smell, flower and with a milky texture of the leaves.
How popular is it?
If you’re an experienced smoker, the Somari marijuana might sound perfect! There’s only one catch: this Indica and Sativa hybrid is pretty rare and elusive, so if you get the chance to buy it, don’t hesitate.

What are some good alternatives?
If you want to try something similar to Somari marijuana, you should check out it’s “parents”. New York City Diesel shares its smell, Buddha’s Sister shares its aspect and Kushadelic shares its amazing high. NYCD and B’s S were created by the same Soma Sacred Seed Company, both winning multiple prizes.
Because it’s a rare gem, I couldn’t find edibles anywhere to buy. The grapefruit smell and taste of the bud must make for a great option when cooking brownies. Reviews of the Somari wax say it’s out of this world. The taste of diesel is more pregnant here.

This one is a good weed for medicinal use if you’re familiar with the effects of cannabinoids. The buds look beautiful when growing and once they’re dried, they are rock solid. The taste and the flavor are citrusy, with a few notes of diesel. Growers are always excited to get their hands on Somari cannabis seeds because it is a beautiful plant to grow. Although it is hard to find seeds and buds, reviewers speak highly of it.
I expected a great strain when I bought the Somari weed. A strain with such a pedigree should live up to its name. But it exceeded my expectations. The smoking experience was a pleasure. And it only created higher expectations regarding the high. Those were again exceeded. I became one with the couch and I started to meditate and reflect upon myself. This is everything I’m looking for in cannabis, being an enthusiast of weed.
