Sunshine #4 Strain Information

Sunshine #4 cannabis was created by Bodhi Seeds. It is a cross of Chemdawg 4 and Sunshine Daydream.

The average THC level is about 21%, making it much more potent than most commercially available kinds of cannabis. Therefore, it is not the best choice for novice users. The Sunshine 4 strain tastes awesome. It smells like fuel and lemon with chemicals, and its water-mouthing flavor is sweet and a little bit harsh.

In fact, the taste is determined by the list of terpenes contained in the plant. The dominant ones: 

  • Phellandrene
  • Limonene
  • Myrcene
  • Carene

Sunshine #4 Strain Effects

Due to its effectiveness, it's better to use it in the afternoon or evening. By the way, it is possible to work or interact with other people while under the effects of Sunshine 4 weed. Some of the users say that this cannabis helps them feel happy and relaxed. 

Smokers say when using this special marijuana, your body becomes relaxed and calm. You get some sense of euphoria; even dreams may come to the mind. On the other hand, they reported feeling energized and uplifted. Because Sunshine #4 strain leans to the Sativa end of things, some smokers find that it causes anxiety, or even headaches, especially in very high doses.

Sunshine #4 is an award-winning strain that took the prize for Best Hybrid Flower at the 2015 High Times Medical Cup in Michigan. For breeders, the news is unpleasant because finding the seeds at the shops is a tricky task.

Very uplifting and laid back beachy vibes, fresh breeze, palm trees… that kind of things. Goes well with the bong or pipe. The flavor is sweet but also almost brassy. Extreemly efficient when Im dealing with daily tension. It’s mostly an evening pot, but I use it whenever I’m in the mood for it.

Im impressed with the way they balanced physical and mental effects. Very powerful little flowers, with an aroma that reminds me of summer and fruits. I really love the way it calms me down. In the beginning the effects are more noticeable on the body. Worth to try!

Probably one of the most beautiful cannabis plants Ive ever seen in my entire life and… Im not young or new to this. I am simply mesmerized by its look. Despite the very cute name, because of the decent level of THC, it’s actually one sneaky little thing.
