Biscotti. No, this review is not for the hard breakfast treat that is meant to accompany your morning coffee or tea. Instead, we're about to tell you the many reasons why you're going to need a very tall ladder to reach the shelf that the Biscotti strain sits atop. It's truly one of the best! We shouldn't get your hopes up though. The odds of finding the Biscotti strain are exceedingly slim. It’s an exceptionally rare strain. If you do find this strain, hold onto it. Don’t waste it. You probably won’t find it again for a long time.Biscotti is what is known as a ‘dankenstein’ strain, which is basically any strain that is a cross of two or more exceptionally dank strains. The end result is usually what some people call ‘next-gen,’ meaning it is part of the ever-growing cannabis revolution. Dankenstein strains are bred for two reasons: potency and flavour. Many landrace crossed strains have either potency or flavour. Strains like Biscotti, on the other hand, have both. This makes them exceptionally popular, but, unfortunately, they are often very very rare, and, if you do find them, very very expensive. Picture the top shelf, and then picture a shelf above the top shelf. That is what these strains, like Biscotti, are. There is another Biscotti strain, called Tangie Biscotti, or Tangie Leafly. This is most likely a cross of Biscotti and Tangie.

Biscotti weed Strain: indica or sativa?Most dankenstein strains are hybrids. Biscotti is also an indica-dominant hybrid. It has a leaning of 80:20, meaning you can expect both a cerebral buzz, but you'll most likely experience an overwhelming body high. However, the main thing that stands out about Biscotti is its flavour. If you’re looking for an exceptional indica-dominant hybrid with one of the best tastes you’ve ever tasted, then you’ve found it.
Biscotti Strain geneticsThis strain was created by Cookies Fam. They claim to be the pioneers of a lot of these exceptionally dank strains, and it’s hard to disagree with them. Biscotti is a cross between:
- Gelato #25
- Girl Scout Cookies
Gorilla Glue #4
The average indica-dominant hybrid has around 12-13% THC inside it. Biscotti, having been bred for taste and potency purposes, averages in with a THC level of 25%. Some Biscotti phenotypes test at around 30%. This is massive, and is almost guaranteed to knock your socks off. You may also experience some couch lock, which shouldn't come as a huge surprise, as that's what its parent, Gorilla Glue #4, is famous for.
Biscotti weed Strain THC percentage
This is the real kicker. Unfortunately, as the seeds aren’t available online, and in general the strain is exceptionally rare, the price is very high. In Amsterdam, you’re probably looking at about $40 a gram at least. In North America, it’s going to be slightly cheaper, but still not cheap by any means. A gram will cost at least $25 in a dispensary in California. However, because of its strength, it’s probably worth it.

Biscotti weed Strain taste
Biscotti is definitely a strain you’re going to want to experience inside a flower vaporiser. Although it’s also one of those strains that tastes good no matter how you smoke it, it’s definitely worth cracking out your trusty flower vape for this one. It’s simply one of the best-tasting strains available on the market right now, and to combust it ruins the flavour ever so slightly. By using a vaporiser there is no combustion, keeping Biscotti's elegant flavor profile in tact. Furthermore, if you grind the weed first, it will taste even better inside your vaporiser.
Any strain can be made into wax or oil. It’s not an easy process, but you can technically make Butane Hash Oil from any strain at home. It’s considered to be dangerous, so please exercise extreme caution when attempting it. If you do manage to find enough of this strain to make into a concentrate, then you will understand why people pick strains like this. Basically, strains are picked for having flavour and potency. Biscotti, as we’ve already seen, has both. This makes it a great choice for making into concentrates.
Biscotti Strain oil, wax, shatter, edibles etc.
Edibles can also be made from any strain you like. There are two methods for making edibles; both include decarboxylation of your weed. Decarboxylation is the process of turning THCA (raw THC) into THC. Without this process, your weed edibles will only have a little bit of potency. To decarb your weed normally, simply stick it in the oven. After an hour or so, take it out, mix it with a fat or an oil, and you’re good to go. The other method is using Already Vaped Bud, which is the leftover flower from your vaporiser. This is actually perfectly decarboxylated weed, so you simply need to mix it with a fat or an oil and again you’re good to go.

This tasty indica-dominant hybrid also has pretty potent effects. A relaxing strain, Biscotti could easily leave you feeling completely glued to your couch, so watch out! If you do feel glued to your couch, you can simply take a cold shower and drink a coffee, and you should feel better afterwards. If you’re looking for an indica that will chill you out, but also give you a slight cerebral buzz, then Biscotti is definitely one to try. Its indica/sativa balance makes it a good strain for treating depression, although this by no means it will cure everyone's depression. All we have to say is there's only one way to find out if it will work for you or not...
Biscotti Strain flowering timeIt is very hard to find information about the growth of this strain because it’s such a rare strain. However, some people say that the flowering time of Biscotti is 8-9 weeks.
As this strain is a bushy indica-dominant hybrid, it’s recommended that you trim the top leaves of the plant. This allows the bushiness of the plant to stop growing as much, allowing light and air to get to the bottom of the plant. This strain is also a good example of a strain that reacts well to Sea of Green or Screen of Green techniques.
