Apollo 13 marijuana strain
Apollo 13 consistently receives quite a bit of praise that has come to be expected with strains created by breeders Brothers Grimm. A cross between two of their other successful strains, P75 and Genius (a Jack Herer phenotype), this strain has a decorated lineage. Apollo 13 has the distinction of being especially rare as it is said that only 500 seeds came from the original stock and the few cuttings are the stuff of legend.
This plant is less finicky than most and is often recommended for new grower. It also flowers very quickly at 7-8 weeks, producing large sticky buds. Apollo 13’s aroma is unique and very pungent. Its scent has been described as peppery and earthy with a punch of both sour fruit and citrus, while the taste takes on the herbal notes of tea with a skunky aftertaste. As its name suggests, this strain will have your head in the clouds as its effects are cerebral and energizing. While the more popular version of this hybrid is the sativa-dominant plant, be aware that an indica-dominant version is also out there.
Apollo thirteen features a pungent peppery and earthy smell on the first inspection. What makes it incredibly fascinating is the bitter tone of citrus mixed in. Admittedly, Apollo 13 could be deemed too strong for some users, and it certainly doesn’t fall into the category of discreet – but again, each to their own.
Despite its pungent and robust aroma, upon lighting, there are more alluring notes of wood and even a little sweetness coming through which helps to balance things out a little.
Although Apollo 13’s aroma doesn’t precisely meet everyone’s preferences, it will do the job with its flavors. We must mention from the start though that this bud gives off a pretty harsh smoke on the throat, so bear that in mind when deciding if this is one for you!
Apollo 13 Medicinal Benefits
The medicinal benefits of this bud certainly vary from one user to the next. For example, for many medical cannabis users, Apollo 13 is beneficial in the relief of headaches. A strain which can manage headaches is also coincidentally known to bring on headaches in some… confusing? Remarkably so – but we do know that for many it is a potent pain reliever.
Thanks to its uplifting and energetic high it makes for a great combat to stress, low mood, anxiety, and depression. Not to mention its ability to retain your focus, making it ideal for getting things done particularly if you have a piece of work coming up that you have been putting off for some time.
Some users can find this strain leaves their head in the clouds, but it shouldn’t cause sleepiness unless you overindulge. You can remain alert, focused and creative for hours throughout the day.
Oh – and if you’re partial to a late afternoon feast, you will love the munchie effects of this bud, perfect for binging or relieving symptoms of anorexia.
