Mandala of Mandala Seeds designed the 8 Miles High strain with two goals in mind. The first goal was to make the strain very low maintenance. The second was to have it finish flowering in a northern climate by mid-October. In order to achieve these goals, Mandala bred two landraces, an African Sativa and a North Indian Indica, together. This strain is named after a song written by The Byrds after they flew to London while stoned. 8 Miles High has a lemony-lime taste with undertones of strawberry and mint. A strongly cerebral strain, it most often activates the minds of patients, lifting their moods, filling them with energy, and leaving them clear-headed and functional.
While the strain was designed to grow outside, those with the space to grow 8 Miles High indoors or in a greenhouse, will find they can do so problem-free. It needs between 60 and 65 days to finish creating a large harvest of up to 450 grams per square meter. Outside plants can yield up to 1,000 grams per plant. If growing the strain indoors, Mandala recommends using 400 to 600 watt high pressure sodium grow lamps. 8 Miles High can carry up to 23% THC.
