Domino is a potent indica with deeply embodied effects that can last longer than usual, even for smokers with a high THC tolerance. Although its roots are not well documented, this bud may have origins in British Columbia. Although its genetic background and original breeders are obscure, there’s no doubt about this strain’s value for those seeking a mellow and relaxing trip. Its THC content has been measured at moderate levels between 12% and 15%.
Despite the strain’s overwhelming indica effects, its flowers have a characteristically sativa appearance. The buds have an open, fluffy structure with loose and ragged leaves that adhere in spindly, elongated formations. Domino’s leaves are where the strain really shines, showing off shades of mossy green and in some cases purple thanks to high concentrations of anthocyanin pigments. A carpet of cloudy trichomes gives these flowers their potency.
Domino’s flowers may have a dank and earthy scent, similar to damp soil. There may also be some notes of fire or burnt wood. Grinding up these flowers, meanwhile, may release a skunky funk. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Domino can be harsh on the palate, leading to coughing or watery eyes. On the exhale, this acrid smoke can taste sour and earthy.
Domino’s thorough relaxation can have benefits for medical cannabis users as well as recreational ones. Its almost paralyzing effects can take the sting out of the troubling symptoms of stress depression, anxiety, and even PTSD. Physically speaking, it can lessen pain that’s due to temporary inflammation as well as chronic conditions like arthritis. Domino can also stoke the appetite, helping those who have lost their hunger to disease or to chemotherapy treatment. In a properly comfortable set and setting, the strain may even help insomniacs find some sleep. Because it doesn’t come with many strong cerebral effects, Domino is a good option for patients who are prone to panic; however, its strong body high may provide disorienting and those with a low THC tolerance may want to consume the strain with caution.
Those looking to grow this sleepy strain at home should obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants in order to foster genetically identical “clones.” It can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Gardeners looking to bring out the buds’ purple coloring should expose their crops to cold (but not freezing) nighttime temperatures just before flowering begins.
If you’re lucky enough to run across it, Domino is worth snatching up for its luxurious relaxation. It’s a must-try for indica lovers.
