When cannabis strains have names that truly describe them, it’s a sign that breeders have taken immense amounts of time and care in crafting that particular plant. Ethos, based in Denver, Colorado, did just that with Crescendo, an indica-dominant bud that will truly be the highlight of your life. They crossed I-95, Chemdawg, and Mandarin Cookies to develop a strain that’s incredibly powerful with complex flavors.
If you’re newer to smoking cannabis, we’d strongly suggest you steer clear of this gal, as she consistently measures in with 30% THC. Her nugs are quite large and while they are a vibrant green, hints of purple often peek through her dense layer of white trichomes. Both her aromas and flavors are unique and diverse, with notes of sweet cookies, earth, gas, fruit, and kush all blending together to create something that’s tasty and often leaves you wanting more.
Just as potent as her flavors, Crescendo has been known to infuse users with an incredibly intense high right from the start. A true nighttime strain, you’ll likely feel her hit hard with a euphoric lift that makes your brain happy while leaving your body feeling heavy and relaxed. Head to toe tingles aren’t out of the question, and for some, arousal might even be in the cards. Keep in mind that this strain often imparts a serious case of the munchies, so it’s recommended that you not only go grocery shopping beforehand, but you should literally complete all prep work needed and put the food within arms reach before you toke - you’ll thank us later!
Crescendo brings the peak of intensity that her name entails, and her amazing high is likely the reason that seeds of this bud are sold out on the Ethos website. Assuming you are able to place an order at some point in time, you’ll want to consult with an experienced grower before you plant. Described as a strain that reaches a medium-tall height, she often produces a very large yield. It’s unclear just how resilient she can be in outdoor environments, so it might be best to start off with an indoor crop and take it from there.
Imagine the build up of a song and how awesome it feels when you get to hear the crescendo - this strain is like that in a way, but instead of having to wait, you get to experience the best part right from the start. Crescendo might be a bit difficult to find in some parts of the country, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled every time you visit your local dispensary. Head to the grocery store, clear your calendar, and prepare to indulge in a potent bud that just might have you eating right up until you fall asleep.
This strain was okay for me. I had it from thc design and it was advertised as a sativa. I usually go for more clear headed sativas like jack herer, grapefruit and some sativa dominant hybrids similar to OG Kush, wedding crashers, etc if I want a sativa feeling. But, I thought I would give this one a try because of the interesting lineage. It ended up being too much of hazy heavy hybrid feeling that I wasn’t looking for. It was a fine strain for sitting around the house chilling or starring at the clouds in the park. It just wasn’t the focused, clear headed motivating feeling I wanted from a sativa strain. I can say that it was smooth and had a nice flavor to it.
LEIDIS A MCINTOSH
It a great body numb and head high without being sleepy.
Very good, I use it for pain.
Fantastic you just feel relaxed but alert
Crescendo by THC Design is a Sativa containing 32% THC!! Lineage is Chem Dawg x I95 & Mandarin Cookies & it gave me a great heavy smoke!! Hard, jungle green buds with apricot orange pistils & crystal trichomes I could see before I ever touched a bud. Earthy diesel & sweet citrus are the scents & flavors. This hazy trip made me uplifted & energized with a cheery outlook. One of the nicest Sativa’s I have ever had!! Stay Elevated.....
