About Brazil Amazonia
Brazil Amazonia is a predominantly strain native to South America. Selected and cultivated by international breeder World of Seeds, Brazil Amazonia is a distinct phenotype of a Brazilian sativa landrace. With some traces of indica genetics, this strain offers a surprising balance of mental and physical effects as well as a deeply complex flavor profile. Brazil Amazonia’s THC content has been measured at moderate levels of between 16% and 19%.
Flowers of Brazil Amazonia are of average size and adhere in tight, elongated columns. These buds have a surprisingly dense core, although their leaves look fluffy and loose at their fringes, lending the flowers a hybridized appearance. The leaves themselves are a mossy yellowish-green and are shot through with brown and rust-colored pistils. Finally, Brazil Amazonia’s cylindrical flowers are coated in a layer of crystalline white trichomes, lending them a potent psychoactivity.
On initial inspection, Brazil Amazonia’s buds give off an herbal, medicinal aroma, with notes of eucalyptus. A closer whiff, however, may pick up on some fruity citrus accents as well. When Brazil Amazonia is ground up or broken apart by hand, it has more of a peppery zing that may tickle the palate. Burning these flowers gives off a thick and rich smoke that may trigger coughing thanks to its confluence of bold flavors. On the exhale, this smoke tastes spicy and earthy.
The high from Brazil Amazonia tends to take effect quickly, hitting unexpecting users with a sudden headrush. At first, this can manifest in strange sensations like deep flushing in the cheeks or an increased pulse around the temples and cheekbones. Once these facial tics subside, though, smokers are rocketed into a new plane of thinking. Ideas may occur with greater frequency and may seem to assume a new intensity. In social situations, this kind of mindrace can lead to lively conversation and camaraderie -- even when shared with relative strangers. For consumers in more solo settings, Brazil Amazonia can enable focus on all kinds of tasks, whether rigid and analytical or artistic and creative. Alternatively, the strain’s steady mental amusement can simply make everyday chores like laundry or errands more enjoyable.
As time passes (or as intake is increased), Brazil Amazonia starts to exercise increasingly physical properties. A wave of relaxation that spreads through the body can lead to deep, easy breathing as well as a relief from any long-standing muscular tension. For some, this sinking feeling may undo some of the high’s earlier mental acuity and motivation. As such, Brazil Amazonia’s later stages may be better spent in the comforts of home, pursuing passive activities like board games or binge-watching. Because of its two-phase effects, Brazil Amazonia is recommended for use beginning later in the day or during early evening.
While enjoyable for recreational consumers Brazil Amazonia’s dynamic high can have benefits for medical cannabis patients as well. Its cerebral stimulation can be a great concentration aid for those with attention deficit disorders. Additionally, its ability to enhance mood may temporarily improve the difficult symptoms of stress and depression. On the physical side of things, Brazil Amazonia can provide relief from chronic, disease-related aches and pains; its anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, may treat discomforts like headaches and cramps. Because its thoughtful mood can take a wrong turn into paranoia under the wrong circumstances, Brazil Amazonia may not be the best option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Fortunately for those looking to grow this storied landrace, World of Seeds has made seeds of Brazil Amazonia available online. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, with outdoor success requiring a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Surprisingly, this strain’s plants betray more of a sativa influence, with a short, squat stature that can easily be accommodated both indoors and out. From time to time, gardeners may need to trim back any broad fan leaves, which can prevent light and air from circulating among the plants’ lower branches. Brazil Amazonia reaches its mature flowering stage within about 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors. Per World of Seeds, it has a moderate yield of buds.
An excellent choice for sativa lovers looking to achieve some physical relaxation, Brazil Amazonia has something for everyone. It may especially appeal to connoisseurs of rare landrace strains.
