About Dance World
Contrary to what you might expect from its name, Dance World is a very laid back strain. This mostly sativa bud is high in the therapeutic cannabinoid CBD. With roots in Spain, it is the creation of well-known growing operation Royal Queen Seeds, who have also given us strains like Critical Kush and Royal Cheese. Dance World is a cross between Reggae Seeds’ Dancehall and the Mexican and Afghani-descended Juanita La Lagrimosa; it offers soothing effects and a fruity aroma.
Flowers of Dance World are marked by a typically medium to large size. These showy flowers have the loose, open structure that is usually associated with other predominantly sativa strains. The ragged buds are a bright spring green and are wound through with curly brown pistils. A crown of resinous white trichomes coats the inner and outer nooks and crannies of Dance World’s flowers.
On a first whiff, Dance World’s cured flowers may give off a familiar earthy smell like damp soil. There are also some fruity, citrus-like accents that brighten up this aroma. When the flowers are picked apart or ground, a hashy, spicy scent predominates, possibly passed on from its Afghani lineage. When it is combusted in a pipe or a joint, Dance World gives off a fragrant and herbal-tinged smoke that’s easily ingested. On the exhale, this smoke tastes somewhat fruity.
Due to its high levels of CBD, Dance World may not immediately seem to be psychoactive. Instead, 10 to 15 minutes after they’ve pulled on its flavorful smoke, some consumers may feel a progressive relief from any long-standing physical tension in the body. At a high enough dosage may and in properly relaxed circumstances, this body high may even progress into full-on numbness and couchlock. In addition to banishing pain, these soothing properties can push any anxieties or preoccupations into the background. Because of these heavy lethargic qualities, Dance World may render physically demanding activities difficult if not outright impossible.
Those who do pick up on any trippy or “high” effects from Dance World tend to do so once they’ve adjusted to the influence of CBD. After an hour or so, the strain’s sativa properties may manifest as a steady mental buzz. Thoughts may jump from one to the next in a freely-associative pattern and can take on a new resonance or intensity. This sort of plugged-in, sped-up thinking may be helpful for those working on detailed, problem-solving tasks as well as on freewheeling creative projects. Moreover, it can help provide some background mental illumination for those performing more menial tasks like cleaning the house or grocery shopping. Because of its physically slowed-down effects, Dance World is best enjoyed starting in late afternoon when its relaxing vibe can be fully savored.
Dance World’s high CBD content makes it of great value to medical cannabis patients. Its kicked-back and calm physical feeling can take the sting out of physical pain, whether it’s due to chronic conditions like fibromyalgia or lupus or to injury. Additionally, anti-inflammatory properties can help Dance World take the sting out of everyday discomforts like headaches and cramps. Those who find themselves able to discern and appreciate the strain’s cerebral stimulation may find that it counteracts the troubling symptoms of stress or depression. Additionally, Dance World can help those with attention deficit disorders stay focused on single tasks. Because its bodily effects can be so strong as to bring about feelings of dissociation, this strain is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Seeds of Dance World can be bought directly through Royal Queen Seeds’ website. The plant can be successfully grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation requires a semi-humid climate with consistent daytime sunlight and temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees. The plants are short and bushy, maxing out at about three feet tall; gardeners may occasionally need to trim away any broad fan leaves that can prevent light and air from reaching any low-growing flowering nodes. Dance World’s plants flower within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors. At maturity, it can offer as much as 450 grams (or about 16 ounces) of flower per plant.
Useful for medical and recreational users alike, Dance World is a uniquely versatile strain. Its complex, fruity aroma is an extra point in its favor.
