The flavor is a combination of sweet cookies, citrus, and earthy-sweet resembling ice cream. The effects can be devastatingly potent leaving you firmly locked to the couch, with enough of a cerebral edge to keep you in a creative mindset.

A Cali strain bred to perfection and now in auto version for those who love potent effects and unique terpene profiles, a must-try for all cannabis consumers.

Grow Tips 

  • Due to her extremely loud terpene profile, it is well recommended to use carbon filters up to the job. Especially when drying the buds, the aroma can become seriously overwhelming. 
  • Defoliating certain Indica shaped fan leaves will help light penetrate into the canopy. This will allow the lowest parts of the plant to grow large-sized buds. 
  • Get those trim bags or sifting screens ready, as she is unbelievably resinous. A wise choice for the connoisseur hash maker or extract artist.

4. Wedding Glue Auto - 26% THC

Remember that Cannabis plants produce trichomes that contain terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids that work like aromatherapy and result in Indica, Sativa-like effects, or a mix of both of them. Even though the cannabinoids are important, it is not all that matters. So if you're looking for a specific effect, either medicinal or recreational, it's a good idea to look for that specific terpene mix instead of looking for THC or CBD-rich strains.

Good luck working your way through this list of the strongest strains in 2021.
