Sweet Tooth Strain Review - Everything You Need to Know & More!

Thanks to Sweet Tooth's potent, trichome-covered buds, this strain is a High Times Cannabis Cup winner from 2001. It also has a sweet taste, which should fully be appreciated inside a flower vape. It is a potent strain known as a landrace cross, which means it is two or more landrace strains crossed together. Sweet Tooth and other such landrace crosses are forerunners of what are known as ‘dankenstein’ strains, which are landrace crosses crossed together to make a seriously freaky and potent marijuana strain.

Sweet Tooth indica-dominant hybrid

Sweet Tooth is definitely worthy of being called a vape strain. This is because the flavour is so absolutely delicious that you don’t want to ruin it by burning it up. Of course, smoking it in a blunt will also taste pretty good, but it won’t taste anywhere near as good as inside a flower vape. Sweet Tooth is an indica-dominant hybrid, which has a decent dash of sativa inside it, keeping the mind pumping, whilst the body dissolves into a relaxing indica high. However, this strain probably isn’t what some would call a social strain, so if you’re looking to go out for the night, you should probably try a different strain. If you’re looking for something to introspect with, and you’re down for a nice chill night, Sweet Tooth could be just your ticket.

Skunk Teeth, Purple Tooth, and Sweet Tooth OG are also different names from this strain. There is always a lot of confusion with names of strains, simply because there are so many, and because people wrongly call different strains the same name. Stick to the correct name, Sweet Tooth, and you’ll be fine.

Sweet Tooth strain genetics

As mentioned previously, this strain is what is known as a landrace cross. This means it’s a cross between two or more landrace strains. Sweet Tooth is a cross between:
  • Afghanistan
  • Hawaii
  • Nepal

It was created by Barney’s Farm, who are one of the most famous seed and coffeeshop companies in Amsterdam. This is good for a number of reasons, but mainly because it means that you can go and experience this strain at their coffeeshop in Amsterdam. It also means you can buy their seeds directly online from the original breeder, ensuring the authenticity of what you're smoking.

Sweet Tooth THC percentage

The average indica-dominant hybrid has around 12.5% THC. Sweet Tooth is a bit more potent than that, with an average of around 14%. Sweet Tooth’s strongest phenotype, however, has up to 19% THC. That is pretty high for a strain that was concocted in the late 1990s, early 2000s. Compared to today, weed was a lot less strong back then.

Sweet Tooth pricing

As discussed before this strain is available in Amsterdam, and the seeds can be bought online. This means that, in general, the price of Sweet Tooth is much lower than a rarer strain. A true dankenstein strain in a coffeeshop in Amsterdam can cost up to $45 a gram. Sweet Tooth is likely to cost $10-15 a gram. The difference is pretty huge and makes it a great choice for those who want to try a delicious strain without paying out of your ears.

Sweet Tooth taste

Sweet Tooth has a predictably sweet taste with undertones of both pine and wood. Please try this strain inside a flower vape, because you’ll truly appreciate the taste if you do. The best thing about using a vaporiser is that you can eat the already vaped bud, to get high all over again!

Sweet Tooth oil, wax, shatter, edibles etc.

Marijuana is a wonderful thing, and you can make oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc. out of any strain. It doesn’t matter what the strain is. The only difference is the number of crystals that cover the strain. In general, the more crystals the better the strain is for making waxes and oils.

If you’re making edibles, please ensure that you decarboxylate your weed first. This is an incredibly important part of the process, and without it you’re effectively wasting at least 80% of the potency. As mentioned before, you can take the already vaped bud from your flower vape, and eat it again. This is because vaping perfectly (at lower temperatures) decarboxylates your weed for you. Simply mix your decarbed weed with a fat or an oil and you’re good to go.

Sweet Tooth is a fantastic, indica-dominant strain, which will bring about relaxation and a little bit of a cerebral buzz. It’s a very chill strain, and probably shouldn’t be smoked before parties. It’s great for getting in some quality you-time, so put some music on, lie down and let Sweet Tooth sooth you into a euphoric state.

Sweet Tooth flowering time

Sweet Tooth is a very quick flowering strain. It grows in around 40-55 days, which is very fast, and is therefore very favourable for growers.

Sweet Tooth Growing tips

Thankfully this strain is mould resistant, making it an east first grow for the inexperienced. It can also adapt to extreme conditions, meaning if you mess something up it won’t necessarily die straight away. The enormous resin content makes it a very favourable strain for those who want to make concentrates. It is highly recommended that you support the branches during the final weeks of flowering because Sweet Tooth has large, resin-covered buds, which may droop if you don’t support them.

Sweet Tooth seeds

The best thing about Dutch strains is that you don’t have to worry about snake oil salesmen. The Dutch are very intelligent, and they realised that if they made a strain that everyone loves, they could make absolute bank from selling the seeds online. That is what most of them do. Barney’s Farm, Sensi Seeds, Royal Queen Seeds, and much more. This is a Barney’s Farm strain, and the seeds are available from their website.

Sweet Tooth yield

Sweet Tooth will offer a huge yield of highly potent buds. It also yields purple tinges, which cause some people to call this strain Purple Tooth.
