Gemstone is a strain that’s so rare and highly sought after, you’d think it was made from precious materials itself. Unknown breeders have created a complex bud that offers a beautiful exterior and effects that are just as lovely. This four-way cross between Lavender, Northern Lights, Sour Diesel, and Skunk #1 has become a fan favorite and for good reason.
Both medicinal and recreational users will appreciate this strain’s power, as an average THC level of 20% aims to please. Nugs are super gorgeous, with hints of purple and deep green shining through a truly glittering coat of trichomes. As you break up the buds, you’ll be treated to a scent that’s akin to lavender with a hint of skunk that’s earthy yet not off-putting. Flavors abound with a mix of tea, tree fruit, and citrus for a refreshing and sweet taste.
When you’re in need of a boost of happiness, Gemstone is your gal. Your high will begin with a cerebral rush that lifts your spirits and induces a hazy, yet creative, state of mind. Artists particularly love this strain for its ability to help overcome creative blocks, and anyone who has had a rough day could benefit from its effects. As the indica side of the strain kicks in, you’ll melt into a total body relaxation that’s comfortable yet sedative. Be sure to get your daily tasks done before the second half of your high hits.
Like many other strains with decent THC levels, Gemstone is a winner for a variety of medical conditions. Many note its ability to help with a lack of appetite, and sufferers of mood disorders including depression, stress, and anxiety can finally take off the heavy burden of negative thoughts they carry around on a day to day basis. General instances of pain, as well as insomnia, are no match for Gemstone’s balanced offerings.
New growers will delight in knowing that this strain is a great one to start out with. Requiring only basic care and growing to an average and manageable size, Gemstone will thrive inside or outdoors. After 8 to 9 weeks of flowering, you’ll be able to harvest a yield that’s decent but perhaps isn’t worth writing home about.
An all-around great strain for those who want something tasty and relaxing, Gemstone will do you right no matter what time of day you choose to indulge. Early afternoon is perhaps the more popular option, as you’ll get the focus you need to finish up your tasks and then will be rewarded with a relaxing comedown that leaves you wanting more. This strain is incredibly rare, so if you happen to find some, be sure to stock up.
