Flo is a hybrid strain of cannabis with a slightly dominant sativa presence. Bred by Dutch Passion, Flo is a cross-breed of Afghani Indica and Purple Thai. Flo has a sweet citrus taste, with a slight pine like hint, a soothing but subtle delight for the taste buds. The smell is a bit sour, not unlike menthol, but with a delightful whisper of citrus; quite a distinct aroma.
Flo has a broad range of medical applications. Flo can prove as a quick and powerful fix for a migraine. It is also useful in soothing arthritis pain. The strain succeeds in treating anxiety as well as symptoms associated with ADHD and Bipolar Disorder. Flo is also known to aid in alleviating stress. The effects of Flo are described as energetic yet subtle, making it ideal for many as a wake and bake. Flo can provide a perfect boost for creative types, sparking inspiration for artists and musicians alike.
Fortunate for growers, Flo has a unique ability to produce a bountiful flow of buds that last through multiple harvests. The potential for a multi-harvest 'flow' of buds makes Flo a wise choice for greenhouse production. This isn't to say Flo can't flourish outside as well; Flo can continue to thrive well into November under the right circumstances and weather conditions. Flo matures fast, tending to grow tall and branch out. Flower time is generally around 50 to 55 days.
The buds of Flo are large and tight, coated generously with purple-striped calyxes. Flo's buds are shaped like spearheads, which are heavy and sticky, coated in crystals. The leaves carry beautiful green and purple hues, and the hairs of orange and red add even more color diversity to the beautiful plant.
Flo was bred by DJ Short and stand amongst his Delta 9 Blue Collection. It is the #1 rated winner of the 1996 Cannabis Cup, with THC levels measuring up to 14% and a CBD of 0.26%. With the abilities to relax the muscles, provide mental clarity, soothe aches and pains, relieve stress and anxiety, alleviate nausea, and provide creativity and inspiration, it is certainly a great choice and deserving recipient of #1 at the 1996 Cannabis Cup.
