LSD Cannabis Strain (Everything You Need to Know & More!)

LSD Cannabis Strain (Everything You Need to Know & More!)

Intro:

What is LSD? Fortunately, this hallucinogenic marijuana isn’t acid, man, but LSD indica-dominant hybrid cannabis does give you a very intense, almost psychedelic head high - just like lysergic acid diethylamide, the psychedelic counter culture drug popular back in the 1960s!  Indicas have a reputation for making you couch-locky, and while LSD strain pot does give you some nice body-numbing pain relief within an hour or two of ingestion, you also experience a pretty cerebral mental stimulation almost immediately after toking or dabbing some. The brain boost from LSD ganja may only last for a while, fading as the physical relief and relaxation ramp up, but it is a high that recreational users will find respectably trippy, while medical marijuana patients will appreciate the quieting of their chronic pain and reduction in stress and anxiety! So, hang the blacklights, put up your garishly groovy posters, spark up some LSD psychedelic weed strain and follow the fragrant citrusy sweet smell down the rabbit hole into Wonderland!

Background:

55% Indica-leaning hybrid weed strain LSD was sprung off from 65% indica Skunk #1 hybrid and Mazar I Sharif - a phenotype, or genetic variation, of Afghani landrace pure indica. The potency of powerfully psychotropic indica-heavy LSD marijuana comes from an abundant THC level of up to 24%, with 2%-5% CBD.  LSD cannabis was first cultivated by Barney’s Farm, a world-famous marijuana strain breeder from Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and their LSD indica hybrid placed first in the High Times Indica Cup back in 2008. Like its edgier namesake, LSD marijuana strain gives you a very psychoactive high, sometimes with vivid visual effects, a creativity boost, and euphoric uplifted feeling, then it shifts you into some deep bodily relaxation and sedation; due caution, however, about overindulging because, at higher doses, LSD psychedelic weed strain weed might induce anxiety, paranoia, and nervous restlessness. Beyond its energetic and ecstatic effects, Barney’s Farm LSD herb has been found to be an effective medical remedy for a host of physical and mental complaints such as moderate to severe pain, headache or migraines, insomnia, lack of appetite, stress, anxiety, and depression.

For comparison, some other powerful indica hybrids include Purple Kush, Girl Scout Cookies and Barry White.

Buying:

At this point, if you are intrigued enough that you decide to try yourself some LSD cannabis – the blacklights and trippy posters are optional – then you can pick up an 1/8th ounce at an offline dispensary for around $45-$50; wax or oil concentrates for dabbing and vaping run around $25-$30 for a half gram, and $50-60 for a full gram. LSD hybrid indica herb seems to be a predominantly West Coast strain, right now - but it probably will spread throughout the United States and Canada, and anywhere else it is legally available, because it has such a potently uplifting high. You might be able to score some online as well, but internet base prices for weed tend to be a tad higher, and you have to factor in shipping charges as well. Both online and offline pot proprietors may charge local taxes on your purchases, so keep that in mind. We didn’t find any listings for medibles specifically made with LSD cannabis, but they may be out there, ask the budtender or weedsmith at your local provisioning center if they know of any – or maybe use the LSD leaf you buy to make some of your own hash butter, cannabutter brownies  or weed cookies!

Here is a vid of a couple reviewing some LSD trippy weed they bought at their local provisioning center:

Growing:

If you really enjoy tripping out on LSD ganja – or maybe just like how it takes the edge off your PTSD or chronic pain – and you have any kind of a green thumb, then you can always try your hand at planting and harvesting your own planter full, plot, small garden or field of this freaky flower! Barney’s Farm LSD cannabis grows well indoors or out, as long as it is kept 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit (18-26 degrees Celcius), with plenty of sunlight but limited humidity – because the dense buds are prone to mold and mildew. Apparently, worm castings and bat guano are excellent fertilizers, so if you have a pet bat that’s probably handy – or likely you can buy these things at either a cannabis or traditional nursery!  LSD pot plants grow to between 5-6 feet (or about 2 meters) and flower at 7-8 weeks, budding in dense clusters of greenish yellow and orange, with a nicely high yield of about 600 grams (21.2oz) per square meter or yard outdoors, with the indoor yield being somewhat less.

You can pick up some LSD hybrid strain seeds online at web sites such as the original creator, Barney's Farm  for about $12 USD (10.50 euros) for a single seed pack, up to $92 USD (81 in euros) for 10 seed packs; I Love Growing Marijuana has them for $79 for 5 seed packs up to $179 for 20 seed packs. Of course, you can likely find LSD marijuana cloned plants at your local dispensary or cannabis nursery for around $40-$45 per plant; but call ahead and make sure they have them on hand before you drive or Uber over there.

Summary:

LSD indica-dominant hybrid weed strain may make you temporarily mad as a hatter, sending you on your own trip into Wonderland, but after the initial psychotropic jolt wears off, then you experience a nice, relaxing body buzz. LSD flower, or buds, produce a very piney scent when pinched or sniffed, but are earthier and sweeter in taste and smell when smoked, dabbed or vaped. LSD indica-leaning cannabis seems to be more readily available in western states like Alaska, Washington, Oregon and Colorado; but provisioning centers in other states and countries do import, from time to time, so it’s possible that your favorite ganja supplier may have some on their menu - consult your local listings. If you are at all horticulturally inclined, then you could try to grow some LSD trippy weed in your own ganja garden or some potted pot plants with grow lights in your garage; they’ll grow into some tall bushes with dense nug clusters if you give them the right nutrients, sunlight or the equivalent, and don’t let them get too moist or mildewy. However you get your hands on some, you’re gonna find that after a brief bout of bat guano craziness, you settle into a mellow body feeling, releasing your aches and pains and all your worries are just whisked away. Maybe you’ll feel like having a little stem tea party with your friends and debate nonsensical things like your Facebook feed or why a raven is like a writing desk… or maybe notsomuch! LSD indica-dominant hybrid weed is favored by medical marijuana patients as a good cure-all for stress, depression, pain and bouts of nausea; and just general tokers and dabbers like the sweet, earthy taste and intense head high of LSD space weed, so there’s something for both prescription and casual pot smokers to go mad about and even if the initial psychedelic rush makes you a little kooky , it’s okay - because as the Cheshire Cat told Alice, we’re all a little mad here!
