He’s the one who keeps everything steady, or at least that’s what he’s meant to do. The C3PO strain is unique for its ultra-low THC and ultra high CBD levels, making it perfect for those who want to just be even like the droid himself. This medical strain is the brainchild of Petrolia Farms and the expert breeding results that Humboldt County is known for.
Though there are strong hints of citrus on the nose, the flavors of C3PO tend to lean more toward a brisk walk through the forest. Pine and earth are strongest on the palate, while fruitiness tends to come in as the flower burns. With THC levels coming in at just 1% and CBD at a whopping 15%, these crystallized, light green buds offer a body high that will have you floating through a galaxy far far away. The yellow hairs that envelope each nug give it that gold C3PO flair.
The high begins squarely between the eyes, relieving pressure and soothing your stress. As it makes its way to your limbs and core, down the neck and into the spine, you start to feel an intense relaxation that overtakes any aches or pains you may be feeling. A slight kick in energy sets in but only momentarily, and is quickly replaced with a feeling of euphoric relaxation. Because of the high CBD content in this strain, you can almost guarantee a completely chill high and still be able to carry on with your day.
As mentioned, the C3PO high is utterly relaxing, though this particular strain can be slightly energetic at times. That energy gives way to the full body calm the CBD provides, making it best for the treatment of pain, muscle spasms, inflammation, joint aches, and cramps. Additionally, it is helpful with mood disorders such as stress, depression, bipolar, and some cases of anxiety (particularly PTSD and social anxiety).
C3PO doesn’t have any specific growing information from the breeders at this time, but users have described some loose instructions that tend to vary from person to person. On average, it’s decided that this strain has a flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks indoors or a late September to early October harvest for outdoor growth. The yields are average to above average in temperate climates.
It’s an appropriately named strain, paying homage to the sassy, yet eloquent Star Wars character. The only thing missing from the cannabis version of C3PO is the frantic nature the character brings to the screen. You’ll find that this is a super chill, super happy strain and surely it will become a favorite in no time.
