LSD by Barney’s Farm
Named for its amazing hallucinogenic effects and extremely uplifting, cerebral and psychedelic high, this marijuana strain allows for cannabis users to experience the best of psychedelia without any risks of a negative or anxiety inducing trip that can often occur with true LSD! This phenotype is brought to you by renowned breeders at Barney’s Farm based out of the weed capital of the world, Amsterdam, who have also introduced hits like Alaskan Thunder Fuck, Acapulco Gold and Grape Ape! The strain is a balanced sativa leaning hybrid with a THC count that reaches as high as 24% in addition to 5% CBD! With such a CBD count paired with an above average THC potency, the strain is not only ideal for well rounded effects and an enjoyable, happy high, but it’s also great for medical users of cannabis seeking an effective sativa!
Because of its high potency, this strain is not necessarily recommended for novice users as it can be overwhelming. LSD allows users to experience a strongly psychedelic high that is mostly cerebral with a bit of a head focused buzz. You will feel euphoric and upbeat, and some users note it also offers spurs of creativity and sociability, which can make it great for group settings. Despite its strong mental stimulation, a couple hours into the high, users will also feel a sense of calmness and ease settle throughout their limbs and body. It can be quite relaxing and even couchlocking. Its uplifting nature makes it ideal for medical users seeking to alleviate symptoms of stress, PTSD, depression and anxiety, while its indica leaning relaxing effects paired with its CBD content can help with managing physical ailments, including chronic pains, arthritis, headaches, migraines, nausea and seizures. The sense of relaxation felt with LSD can also benefit users struggling with insomnia.
While the LSD strain can be found as an indica dominant hybrid, this phenotype as well as many other variants of LSD are sativa leaning. This one in particular by Barney’s Farms is 55% sativa dominant to 45% indica, and has THC count that averages between 20% to 24%. Its CBD content is up to 5% on average, making it more rich in CBD than most strains on the market, and it also tends to carry 1% CBN. The strain was created by crossing Mazar-I-Sharif (sometimes referred to simply as Mazar for short), and Skunk #1. The former, Mazar, is actually a child of Skunk #1, and is an indica dominant hybrid with a ratio of 80% to 20% sativa, and 20% THC as well as 1% CBN. Skunk #1, a super famous and one of the most popular strains in cannabis, has a lesser indica dominance with 65% indica to 35% sativa. Its THC potency averages between 15% to 19%, also containing 1% CBD and 1% CBN.
Appearance & Aroma
LSD nugs are spade shaped and medium to large in size. In colour, they are light to medium green with rusty orange pistils throughout, and some batches may contain patches of purple or blue hues, and all finished off with a coating of tiny crystal trichomes. It is quite pungent with its Skunk #1 genetics, though it is also quite refreshingly earthy and herbal with undertones of sweetness. When smoked, the flavours contain overtones of sweet citrus lemons that are complemented by further notes of herbs, creating a great taste that can be otherwise surprising when considering its more pungent aromas!
