Fans of Skunk #1 already know it brings the heat when blended with other strains and we’ll tell you now, Americano is no different than what you’d expect from its parentage. By crossing Northern Lights, another fan favorite, and Skunk #1, Enterprise Seeds has given us kin to two strains with extremely in demand characteristics. Luckily, the Americano doesn’t disappoint.
With an above average range of 20% THC, this is a strong, albeit happy, high that will have you buzzing around town with just a couple of hits. These buds come out with deep green hues punctuated by amber hairs and a thick layer of sticky white trichomes and syrupy resin. Users love the refreshing pine flavor and skunky sweet aftertaste, and any fan of the Skunk family knows that the sweet skunk aroma is the best part.
Many describe this high as an arousing experience. So, if you have a to-do list that has been getting left undone, now might not be a good time to try and tackle it. Your mind might be on other things, if you catch our drift. The first wave of energy is accompanied by clear-headed thoughts and truly creative vibes, which over the course of the long-lasting high will change to a slightly more weighted body calm that leaves you totally relaxed and happy. If you are not one of the lucky ones that gets turned on by your bud, you might just have that to-do list to whiz through after all, as this will give you the energy and focus to get through it. Bear in mind this is a heavy comedown and will have you reaching for your pillow in a big way.
For medicinal users, this strain is a great way to get through bouts of depression or stress as it is a great mood booster. Enjoy as your heavy thoughts melt away and your desire to be positive and productive take its place. Americano will give you the hard crash that many insomniacs really need, so enjoy the energy while you can, but be prepared to get a great night of sleep. Additionally, this strain is great for pain relief and lack of appetite. As mentioned above, this is an arousing strain and can be helpful with erectile dysfunction or low libido.
When using aggressive nutrient formulas, growers can enjoy the fruits of their labors in as little as six weeks. For most harvests, however, you’re looking at an indoor grow time of 8 to 10 weeks and for outdoors, late September is a safe bet. These plants will give you a higher than normal yield and are ready when the resin is visible to the naked eye.
This up and down high is perfect for a day off or an evening hangout with that special someone. ‘Netflix and chill’ as they say, or whatever updated term for getting busy is blasting the internet these days. Whatever you call it, this bud is best shared, so grab a friend and enjoy this skunky goodness.
