Many people opt for a nice glass of wine at the end of a long day to help them unwind and take their mind off of things. However, day drinking isn’t exactly condoned across America, and people have been forced to find another way to help them relax even if it’s 11 in the morning. Welcome Chardonnay, a CBD strain that’s here to help. This cross between Black Rose and Cherry Wine is said to come from HGH Seed Inc, although others point to a history that stems from Coast to Coast Collection and a mix between Berry Noir and Kraken.
Designed with more therapeutic intentions in mind, Chardonnay carries no traceable THC and instead boasts roughly 15% CBD. Her flower grows in a spade shape and takes on a bit of a yellow tinge to it along with pistils that are golden in color. We wouldn’t say that trichome coverage is super plentiful, but nugs do look slightly fuzzy at first glance. A delicious mixture of fruits awaits your smoke session as strawberries and rhubarb blend together with a hint of sugary raspberry. The air around you will smell as if you opened a bag of fruit snacks and adds to the overall experience.
Before we go any further, it should be noted for those who are new to cannabis that Chardonnay likely will not give users any type of psychoactive effects. Given that she’s a CBD strain and contains less than 1% THC, she’s designed to provide help with both mind and body rather than giving you a strong case of the munchies or causing you to have conversations with your cat. This strain is often used to help aid in relaxation and sleep, and while some might find that she only offers a mellow feeling of sedation, others could potentially fall asleep far sooner than they’d imagine.
However, beyond just sleeping like a baby, Chardonnay has been reported to infuse smokers with a positive mindset as well, allowing your bad mood to melt away in favor of happier thoughts. Many like to indulge in this strain toward the end of their day while others are able to smoke in the morning and not have it affect their productivity levels.
HGH Seed Inc doesn’t give fans too much information when it comes to growing this plant at home, although she does seem to be fine with either indoor or outdoor growth. Indoor maturation takes between 7 to 8 weeks, while plants outside are ready to harvest in the first week of October. The breeder allows home cultivators to request seeds directly on their site, but just how long it takes to actually receive them remains a mystery.
If you’re new to CBD strains, Chardonnay is a great option to start with. Her flavors are robust and her flexibility in use allows most individuals to enjoy her any time they need a slight pick me up.
