Mellow in nature and a breeder favorite, this super obscure indica-dominant strain is one that took RedEyed Genetics a lot of elbow grease to get perfect, and boy did they succeed. By crossing two of their first generation strains, Huckleberry Hound and Guard Dawg, RedEyed Genetics created a strain that carries the bright coloring and tart flavors of one parent, while boasting the potent but uplifting personality traits of the other.
The genetic blending of Bloodhound is said to be motivated by the desire to pass on the tartness and rich foliage of Huckleberry Hound and the potency of Guard Dawg. In doing so, they’ve managed a THC level that reaches above 24% on average and a bud that smells so beautifully fruity it would be hard not to love. The flavor palate of this dense and resinous flower is somewhat all over the place, with tart fruit and chocolate overtones and skunky, almost dirt-like undertones.
Bloodhound offers a quick onset with an almost instant buzz that starts in your head with an uptick in joy and euphoria. After just one hit you’ll feel that upbeat, giggly sensation making its way to your limbs, eventually relaxing your body into a super chill state. The tingles that wash over you bring with it a rush of focus and energy that may put you in a productive mood. This strain is not recommended for new or novice users as it has a tendency to get ahead of you fast and can be cough inducing.
Medicinal users love Bloodhound for its ability to soothe aches and pain with the numbing properties it provides. It is also highly beneficial for those who suffer from mood disorders such as depression, chronic stress, or bipolar disorder. Due to the uplifting bursts of energy and happiness, this strain offers relief from even the most trying symptoms of the aforementioned ailments. It is likely to agitate anxiety or PTSD, so it is suggested to sit this strain out if you struggle with either.
This plant is fairly easy to care for if you have some experience under your belt. For growers who are less experienced, this scenario might be overwhelming as the plant has a tendency to stretch early and sprout rather quickly. This self-flowering strain has a grow cycle of 8 to 9 weeks and has an above average yield for both indoor and outdoor systems.
This is a fantastic, easy going high that often leads to fits of giggles and good conversation. It’s a great choice for when you want to let your body fully relax and let a euphoric buzz throttle your mind. Inexperienced users may want to steer clear from this rare bud, but for those that have more than one notch on their belt this is a great strain to take for a spin.
