White Buffalo Strain - An Amazing Sativa-Dominant Weed
The White Buffalo is a rare and important spiritual symbol in the cultures of the Great Plains region. Inspired by such a rarity, breeders decided to call an incredible marijuana weed with a similar rarity – the White Buffalo strain (also known as Tatanka strain). White Bufallo marijuana is a sativa-dominant hybrid with powerful effects. Even though it has some Indica features, this is Sativa leaning strain, which makes for stimulating and energetic cerebral effects in all its users.
Created as a cross of the Indica dominant Romulan marijuana and an unnamed cross between Bay 11 and Blackberry Kush, this strain has an extraordinary heritage. With parents like these, it’s no wonder how this strain reached such popularity and obtained 3rd place as best Sativa at Hempcon Cup San Francisco (2015). It has a high THC level that often goes up to 23%, and a low CBD level. This makes it a highly potent, fast-acting strain with effects that will hold on to you for at least a couple of hours.
White Buffalo Strain Effects
The effects vary from one consumer to the next. Naturally, this is determined by many factors such as the frequency of use, the dose, the experience of the smoker, as well as the form of the strain they are consuming. But, regardless of if you’ll smoke White Buffalo strain or take it in the form of wax, you can expect at least some of the following effects: sleepy, giggly, uplifted, and arosed.
When you smoke the White Buffalo weed, you can expect an increased circulation around your eyes, temples, and the entire face. In some cases, consumers detect a bit of dizziness before they acclimate to the strong high. When this passes and you get adjusted to the high (which happens faster to experienced marijuana users), you’ll notice that your perception is getting sharper and sharper. The ordinary thoughts that have been rushing around your mind may take on new significance, not to mention ordinary stimuli that you’ll start seeing as less ordinary. When you consume it, prepare yourself to get into a freely-associative, cerebral mind race. This isn’t the type of weed that will immobilize you and take you to your couch.
Even those with high tolerance enjoy the White Buffalo cannabis because of its high potency and long-lasting effects. But, unless you want to spend the night awake and active, you definitely want to stay away from this one since it will keep you wired for hours to come. You should also be aware that there’s no playing around with White Buffalo cultivar. Highly potent strains such as this one hit really quickly and start elevating the mood right away. The euphoric cerebral high will come fast so, if you are an inexperienced marijuana user or haven’t tried strains of such potent caliber, you definitely want to pace yourself. Don’t despair if you haven’t tried such strains before. Beginners often enjoy this strain as long as they use it with caution. You can even bake it as edibles or consume it in different available forms.
Let’s go step by step:
- After the first toke, expect a stimulating euphoric high. This will promote your positive outlook and enhance your mood. Expect to sense some happiness from within.
- Next, you’ll experience a tingling buzz from your temples, going down in waves. The sensation is invigorating and uplifting.
- With each toke, you can intensify the energizing effects. At some point, you’ll rid all your muscles of tension.
- When the effects start dozing away, you’ll feel calmness overtaking your body.
The White Buffalo strain might be rare and hard to find, but if you can get your hands on it, it’s definitely something you must try at least once in your life. This relatively expensive, highly potent strain is providing its users with an immediate lift, euphoria, as well as relaxation. When you consume the strain, you can expect a fast-rising high and a boost in energy, which makes it a perfect daily strain.
Possible Side Effects of Tatanka Strain
White Buffalo marijuana is high in THC, up to 23% So, you can expect some side effects the same as with other marijuana strains. But, you’d be happy to hear that the adverse effects of this strain are easily manageable. In most cases, the reported adverse effects of White Bufallo cannabis are cottonmouth, headaches, and dizziness. It suffices to say that the first effect is often the cause of the other too, which is why continuous hydration could possibly resolve any of these issues for you.
White Buffalo Strain Look, Smell and Taste
Visually, the White Buffalo cannabis strain isn’t something we’d call remarkable. The flowers are tiny and clustered together in nuggets that look like popcorn. You’ll instantly recognize the solid and dense buds structure, as well as the tightly coiled leaves that go around the central stem. The leaves of this strain have various dark green shades and the recognizable orange pistils of Indica strains. Thanks to the high resin production, the flowers stand out. The White Buffalo plant is coated in white trichomes layers which give it a pale, soft sheen.
To be more, this resin makes the flowers coated with a sticky texture. For growers, this is bad news since it is difficult to break up the strain by hand when the time comes. When cured, the buds of the White Bufallo marijuana get a sour and musty smell with traces of berry aroma. Since the strain comes from the lineage of the Blackberry Kush as its grandparent, these traces are yet another proof of its quality heritage.
If you break open the buds of the strain, you’ll feel a woodsy, piney scent. When you combust the White Buffalo weed, expect it to give off a harsh smoke. For inexperienced smokers or those who aren’t used to such harsh smokes, this may induce coughing.
With its taste of plums and apples and amazing aromas, this strain is definitely not something you want to miss out on.
How to Grow this Strain?
It might be hard for growers to find the seeds of the White Bufallo strain nowadays but those who can get their hands on it definitely love growing it. The strain requires some work, but not much, and thanks to the big interest, it’s definitely gotten the attention of growers worldwide. Most growers nowadays rely on mature plant clippings to grow identical clones. The plant can be grown outdoors or indoors but, if the grower decides for the first option, they need to do this in a Mediterranean-like climate.
Any indoor grower must keep an eye on the growth of its White Bufallo cannabis plant. The plants can stretch as high as 6 feet, which is why growers need to prune and trim the branches to fit within smaller spaces, preferably at the early, vegetative stages. The White Buffalo strain is ready for harvest within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors. When grown outdoors, the plant is ready for harvest in October. If you choose to grow it indoors, make sure that the plant has a hydroponics system.
