Beyond the Brain
About Beyond the Brain
Beyond the Brain is a proprietary strain of cannabis from Mandala Seeds. Mandala Seeds is a leading grower in the cannabis field, as many of their growing and seed production methods have been adopted across the globe. It is an incredibly Sativa-dominant hybrid strain, genetically engineered to give users a haze-free mental high. The strain debuted in 2010 to mass appeal, despite being a limited edition grow. Since then, Mandala Seeds has brought the strain out of their seed bank and started selling its seeds to growers.
Expect variations in the bud sizes for Beyond the Brain, as it has a few different phenotypes when it comes to height, which can affect bud size. Most Beyond the Brain buds are small, fluffy, and bright green in color. These colors are accentuated by furry amber pistils and a thick coating of off-white trichomes. Expect this bud to smell of mint, pine, and herbs. It’s not too pungent, but definitely noticeable to non-smokers. When burned, these scents become a vibrant wave of flavor that washes over your palate. Many users report a slight flavor of menthol on exhale.
Beyond the Brain is still hard to come by, as it is a pretty specific strain of cannabis, not nearly as popular as Sour Diesel or Blue Dream. Despite this, it remains an incredibly potent strain (with THC levels reaching as high as 25%) that is great for medicinal use. Its potent high has been used by many for a range of ailments from stress and anxiety to nausea and inflammation.
Immediately upon sparking up, you’ll feel a wave of clear-headedness wash over you, as you quickly become incredibly alert and focused. Your mental capacity seems to expand “beyond the brain” as you examine every little detail of every thought that passes into your mind. Although this strain is great for using to get focused on your work before that deadline, users report that this is a favorite to use when they are out amongst friends, as the high is quite social. Although it is a Sativa-dominant hybrid, Beyond the Brain also has some Indica elements that help relax your body at the same time as the uplifting Sativa elements free your mind from the shackles placed on your body by your physical ailments.
Beyond the Brain is a cross between a female landrace Colombian Sativa, a Haze hybrid, and a Satori male. It can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse, but it requires a good light source. For an indoor grow, Mandala Seeds recommend 400 to 600 watts per square meter. The strain has two very different phenotypes: one is shorter and the other, larger. Depending on the phenotype, the yield ranges between 250 to 600 grams per square meter when grown indoors, and 500 to 1000 grams per plant when grown outdoors. Requiring 70 days to flower, Beyond the Brain carries up to 25% THC.
Very good strain for daytime. Very good strain to study and read on. I do not experience any extreme anxiety with the heavy use of Beyond the Brain. Very good social situation strain for me.
