The Dank has a tendency to turn out heavy hitters with an appearance so engaging it’s hard to look away, and this creation is no different. Named for the city in Ukraine, Chernobyl is a wild three-way cross between Trainwreck, Trinity, and Jack the Ripper, and is sure to lure you in with its aromas and then keep you hooked with its mood-melting effects.
This sativa-dominant bud offers up wide-ranging THC levels swinging anywhere from 16% to 22% on average. As a result of this, the effects on your mind and body are quite substantial and could leave you with racing thoughts if taken in excess. Much like the little green mutants said to inhabit the abandoned city, Chernobyl buds are rich in color and texture with olive green tones and electric orange hairs that are bathed in powdery white trichomes. Much like its parentage, the aromas are floral and citrus, though when smoked a deep dankness overwhelms your taste buds.
Not for the faint of heart, this bud bursts on the scene like Reactor No. 4 and rips through your mind, evacuating it of any stresses you may have. For recreational use, this is a fun high to take with you on the town as it lasts for well over three hours. It's incredibly euphoric right from the start and has you feeling full body tingles in mere moments. You’ll notice after the initial wave that your focus begins to sharpen and your desire to be social skyrockets. Typically, this strain is saved for those with a little more experience under their belt as it can sometimes get ahead of you and induce minor bouts of anxiety.
Medical users love Chernobyl for its ability to uplift and invigorate the body. If you suffer from chronic fatigue, the energetic nature of this bud will awaken even the sleepiest of people. Mental illness and mood or attention disorders stand little chance against this strain too, as it is recommended for anyone suffering from depression, stress, bipolar, or ADHD. Her all-over tingles and moderate relaxation makes this strain idyllic for treating muscle tension and cramps as well as mild aches and pains.
Chernobyl is a moderately easy to grow plant if you know what you are doing, so intermediates and above are highly recommended. If you can get your hands on seeds and want to take a stab at her, expect your baby to reach heights between 2 and 6 feet after only 7 to 9 weeks. If you watch it closely and prune regularly, you can expect Chernobyl to deliver a very high yield.
This sativa-rich bud gives you bursts of energy and thoughtful waves of introspection. When you couple that with the mildly sedative elements of her high, Chernobyl will soon become a pretty positive moniker in your book.

Definitely gave me a boost of energy that made it impossible to sit still and allowed me to multitask like no other. Cleaned the whole apartment on a whim while also cooking dinner while also watching a movie while also playing with the dog while also hanging out with friends while also finishing up some home projects. The downside and reason for 2 stars was the come-down. I ended up with a piercing migraine, dizziness, and exhaustion so bad, about three hours after smoking I crashed for about 5 hours. The high is fun and lasts for hours, but the comedown was just bad enough that I think I’ll be staying clear for a while.
This strain is painful to smoke. Extremely harsh on the throat. A lot of coughing with this one. Could it be all the pesticide or fungi causing all this coughing? I’ll never smoke this strain again. Terrible
This strain is ideal for PTSD and anxiety. It promotes relaxation and eases stress. Love it!
I love this strain so fucking much, if you ever get a little too buzzed in a way that you weren't expecting from a new Sativa and you happen to have some Chernobyl around take a hit of it!! It will literally bring you back to a nice, stoney neutral state ~ it will be like a time warp dude! As if you never even had the anxiety in the first place. That's what happened to me the first time I ever smoked this bud, it is seriously my favorite strain. :-) It blew away all my anxiety that I had gotten from smoking new cannabis from Humboldt, California for the first time when I first moved here like four years ago. I was honestly surprised when I came onto this app and saw that Chernobyl was a Sativa because I honestly thought it was an Indica this entire time. Or at least a hybrid, but but mostly Indica. It makes you feel so good you literally have no anxiety when you're smoking it. I definitely recommend. Five stars. Thumbs. Up.
