Watermelon Strain Cannabinoids

THC 22.75 - 25% 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 0.38 - 0.69% 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 0.38 - 0.83% 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 0.38 - 0.78% 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 - 0.36% 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 0.2 - 0.72% 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.

The head buzz is slow but you will be relieved of any anxiety within minutes of use. I choose to disagree with Bryan78 who says that it makes you sleepy; despite being an indica dominant, the body high is not cumbersome and you will not fall into sleep. I often feel relaxed both in body and mind.

First heard about this kush at the 2010 Emerald Cup and never really got to smoke until a couple of months ago. The aroma and effects of this dope are something to die for, they make the Kush really distinct from its contemporaries.

Watermelon boasts with very large buds, in fact they are the largest I have ever seen. Those large buds possess high THC content that are highly effective and bake smokers really good. I like it especially for my smoking sessions with my friends. It puts us in the zone all the way to cloud 9, run to your merchant to get this stuff, it stones you out pretty good.

Growing Watermelon cannabis is easy and anyone including first-time growers can grow it. You only need to have quality seeds and the right growing environment. The bud thrives well both indoors and outdoors and has a short flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks. It produces short plants bursting with a fruity smell. 
Watermelon has a high that is flavorful as its taste. It has calming and peaceful effects that will help you deal with stressful days when you want to kick back and relax. The high kicks leaving you lifted and euphoric and calms both the body and mind, leaving you fully relaxed.
