About DJ Andy Williams
DJ Andy Williams is a sativa-dominant strain with a distinctively tangy flavor. Apparently named for a popular New England DJ rather than for the famous variety show host of the 1960s, this strain is a combination of Super Lemon Haze and Blue Dream. These sought-after hybrids impart a stimulating mental high and a well-rounded flavor. DJ Andy Williams’ THC content has been measured at between 15% and 20%.
Flowers of DJ Andy Williams are smaller than average and adhere in tight, spherical clusters. These popcorn-like buds have a dense internal structure influenced by their indica roots; the small, wide leaves curl tightly inward on themselves. These leaves are a vivid shade of yellowish green and are twisted through with hairy-looking brown pistils. Finally, DJ Andy Williams’ buds are coated in a thin layer of glittering, translucent trichomes that make them difficult to break up without a grinder.
What this sativa may lack in visual appeal, it makes up for in aroma -- Andy Williams’ flowers give off a pungent lemon kick, tinged by some sweet notes of berry as well. Grinding up these nuggets, meanwhile, yields more of a medicinal, herbal character, possibly passed on from grandparent strain Haze. When it’s burnt in a pipe or a joint, this strain gives off a smooth, easily ingested smoke. On the exhale, this smoke has a creamy and slightly fruity flavor.
As is often the case with mostly sativa strains, DJ Andy Williams has a high that takes effect fairly quickly. Shortly after ingesting its smoke (and possibly before they’ve even had a chance to exhale) consumers may feel a mounting tingle around the temples and lower forehead. This sped-up pulse may be accompanied by sensations like flushing in the cheeks and and an increase in salivation. As they get used to these odd tics, smokers will feel a distinct change in their perception -- certain sights and sounds may seem to take on a new intensity and may even be prone to slight distortion. Similarly, users’ thoughts may adopt more of a cerebral angle, leading them to focus on everything from complex theoretical topics to tangible, logistical tasks. All this mental stimulation can also serve as a social lubricant, facilitating easy conversation among friends and new acquaintances alike.
After about an hour or so, some of DJ Andy Williams’ physical properties become more and more obvious. Consumers may be able to breathe more deeply and fully at the same time that they experience a release from any longstanding muscular tension. Those who may have been buoyed along by the strain’s initial energy, though, may find themselves starting to slow down. Fortunately, DJ Andy Williams’ acute cerebral mood persists even as these feelings of relaxation take over, leaving consumers free to be productive if they so desire. Because of its gradual increase in drowsiness, this strain is recommended for consumption beginning in the afternoon.
DJ Andy Williams’ far-ranging effects can also have some applications for medical cannabis patients. Its ability to aid concentration can be a boon for those with attention deficit disorders. Its mood-boosting properties, meanwhile, may serve as a temporarily relief from the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Physically speaking, DJ Andy Williams can soothe temporary, injury-related aches as well as pain that’s due to chronic conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. This strain’s tendency to bring about the munchies can even make it a viable appetite supplement for those undergoing harsh treatments like chemotherapy. However, because it brings some risk of paranoia and mindrace, DJ Andy Williams is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of this small-batch strain have not been cultivated for commercial sale. Those looking to grow DJ Andy Williams at home should obtain clippings from mature samples of the strain; these clippings can be propagated as “clones” and can be grown indoors or out. While recommendations specific to growing this strain are hard to come by, its indica-influenced flowers imply that plants grow short and bushy and that they have a brief flowering time of between 8 and 9 weeks.
A buzzy, social strain that provides some moderate relaxation, DJ Andy Williams is worth sampling by indica and sativa fans alike.
