About Aloha Berry
Aloha Berry (sometimes spelled Alohaberry) is a fruity hybrid that hails from Hawaii. This strain, the genetics and original breeder of which are undocumented, offers consumers a well-balanced high alongside a rich tropical aroma. The effects of Aloha Berry are also said to last longer than average. Its THC content has been measured at between 16% and 28%.
Aloha Berry stands out with stunning, well-formed flowers. The buds, which are medium to large in size, have a tapered, almost bullet-like formation. They also have a characteristically indica bud structure, tight and compact, with tightly-curled, forest green leaves. Some phenotypes also show off some hints of deep purple, the result of cold weather stimulating anthocyanin pigments during the growing process. Vibrant orange hairs and sparkly white trichomes add more color to these already-colorful flowers.
When properly cured, Aloha Berry emits a strong, fruity tang with unmistakable notes of blueberry. There may be some toasty, nutty scents lurking underneath as well. Grinding or cracking open the buds gives off a rich, skunky pungency. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Aloha Berry gives of a smooth and easily palatable smoke. This smoke tastes fruity with a bit of a sour funk on the exhale.
Aloha Berry doesn’t take much time before revealing its brainy, buzzy high. Very shortly after consumers exhale this strain’s flavorful smoke, they tend to be hit with a headrush and some possible flushing in the cheeks. These tics may be followed up by a change in cognitive function, with some ideas seeming more dynamic or interesting than they otherwise might. The smoker’s thought may jump from one to the next in free association; some consumers may also find themselves grouping things into general categories. This kind of tuned-in thinking makes Aloha Berry a good way to stay focused on complicated, detail-oriented projects. Alternatively, the strain’s mental chatter can add some much-needed fascination to boring chores like doing the laundry. After an hour or so (or even sooner, if dosage is increased), Alpha Berry’s indica side may begin to show itself. Waves of relaxation roll down from the neck through the spine and core, inspiring the urge to stretch out the closest comfortable couch. Although Alpha Berry affects the mind for the duration of its high, its early cerebral mindset may begin to fade to fade into a dreamy, hazy mood. At this point, the strain is better suited to binge-watching sessions or playing board games than for getting work done. Aloha Berry’s eventual combination of physical and mental stimulation makes it a good way to spice up activities that involve both body and mind: including gaming, light exercise, and even sex. The kicked-back vibe that comes through on Aloha Berry’s backend can also simply be a great way to pass a few hours with likeminded friends. Because of its step down from stimulation into soothing relaxation, Aloha Berry is recommended for consumption between late afternoon and evening.
Aloha Berry can have a few different applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its initial sense of focus may allow those with attention deficit disorders to concentrate on a single task. Its uplifted feelings can also temporarily distract from the symptoms of stress and depression. The strain can also dull physical pain, whether it’s serious, as due to a chronic condition, or minor, like a headache or muscle cramp. Aloha Berry’s ability to induce hunger makes it a good appetite stimulant for those who are struggling with hunger due to disease or to harsh treatments like chemotherapy. Because it can bring about an obsessive, recursive kind of thinking, Aloha Berry is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Seeds of Aloha Berry are not available for sale online. Prospective growers should seek out clippings of the strain from a reputable source; these clippings can be grown as genetically identical “clones.” Once obtained, Aloha Berry can be cultivated indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a hot and semi-humid climate. Gardeners looking to bring out the buds’ purple potential should also expose their crops to nighttime temperatures that are 10 to 15 degrees below average. This strain flowers within 7 to 8 weeks when grown indoors.
Aloha Berry is a good option for indica and sativa lovers alike. Its Hawaiian origin makes it a compelling choice for landrace connoisseurs.
