Ambrosia is a big name to live up to as its meaning in Greek mythology is ‘food of the Gods.’ We’re sure the breeders had exactly this in mind when giving this cleverly named cross between Mighty Mite Seed Company’s Burmese and Jordan of the Islands’ God Bud its moniker. This perfectly blended bud certainly has a lot to live up to, but we’re sure you’ll agree that it made it to the top of that Mount Olympus task.
THC levels aren’t very high here, running between 14% and 16%, but don’t let that fool you into thinking she has little to offer. The bold flavors and sparkling appearance of this bud definitely live up to the name Ambrosia. Upon first glance, you’ll be hit with aromas of tropical fruit, sweet pine, and earthiness, which is mirrored in her flavors adding only the subtle undertones of flowers into the mix. Her smells and flavors are sure to bring you thoughts of bright and joyful places and will get you in the mood to plan a vacation soon. The appearance of the buds themselves only reinforces the ‘food of the Gods’ idea, as nugs are large, spade-shaped, and dense, with neon green hues and bright yellow undertones, vibrant orange hairs, and powdery white trichomes.
Given the famous parenting, Ambrosia is known to hit hard and stay hard throughout the long-lasting high. First, you’ll feel any pressure you may be holding in your shoulders and head lift away as tingles fill your body and make their way down your spine and into your limbs. With a thoroughly cerebral high, this heavenly bud will have you feeling heavy and yet simultaneously light in the head after just a couple of tokes. It crashes over your body like a brisk wind, causing euphoric waves and body numbing from head to toe without necessarily giving you couch lock.
Ambrosia is great for medical users looking for a break from symptoms of anxiety, stress, and bipolar disorder. It is occasionally used for mild cases of ADHD and PTSD, but most users find it is best suited as a strong sedative, therefore benefiting from its relief of pain, muscle spasms, and cases of chronic migraines. Because it has a tendency to cause the munchies, those with eating disorders and generalized appetite loss can find relief with this strain as well.
If you like to grow your own marijuana, this is a great plant for intermediate users with a green thumb. This strain will flourish indoors or out and has a lovely aroma of fresh tropical fruit that would make a great addition to any indoor system. With a flowering time of 8 to 10 weeks, this plant generally gives cultivators an above average yield.
