Named for its unique lavender, pine and slight pineapple taste, Ambrosia is the creation of Jordan of the Islands. The word Ambrosia refers to something with an especially delicious taste or smell. It originates from Greek and Roman mythology meaning "food of the gods." The original definition helps us make sense of the name as we look at the heritage of this hybrid. Ambrosia is a cross between a Burmese Sativa mother from the Mighty Mite Seed Company and their own God Bud. Users tend to experience a happy and focused high, accompanied by a pleasant body stone.
Many people use this strain through the day to combat ADD/ADHD, anxiety and migraines. It can also help soothe aches and pains, alleviate nausea and induce appetite. Ambrosia is very effective for stress relief.
A fast flowering strain, Ambrosia can be grown either indoors or out. It grows to heights of four to five feet and does well in a Sea of Green. Growers that use this method are recommended to prune all but the top four or five branches, so that the plant can focus on growing a large central cola. Ambrosia needs only 7 to 8 weeks for harvesting indoors. It is ready by mid-September when grown outside. Yields for this strain range between 4 and 6 ounces per plant.
