About Ghetto Bird
Ghetto Bird is a balanced hybrid created by Pacific Northwest breeders Dynasty Genetics. It is a cross between Ice Queen and Dynasty’s own proprietary strain Blue Heron. The result offers a rich, herbal aroma to complement its slow-moving but thoughtful high.
Flowers of Ghetto Bird are of average size and maintain a tapered formation, somewhat like miniature pinecones. The internal structure of these buds leans more indica, with a dense center made up of tightly-coiled leaves. The leaves themselves are a bright yellowish-green and are punctuated by curly orange pistils. Finally, translucent white trichomes finish off these solid flowers, making them very sticky to the touch.
An olfactory inspection of Ghetto Bird’s flowers is likely to pick up on an herbal, Haze-like aroma at first, with some notes of lavender. A closer whiff may detect some bright berry scents as well. Grinding up or breaking apart the buds may yield a rich, piney odor that intensifies when the strain is combusted in a pipe or a joint. Ghetto Bird’s thick, rich smoke can be somewhat harsh to ingest but tastes fruity and refreshing on the exhale.
Ghetto Bird’s high doesn’t take long to arrive, sometimes asserting itself before users have even finished coughing on its heavy smoke. At first, consumers may experience head-focused sensations like pressure around the temples or an increase in salivation. Once these dissolves, though, consumers are given access to a new plane of thinking in which ideas may occur to them with a greater frequency or intensity. In buzzy social settings, this surge in cerebral activity can lead to chattiness and camaraderie, even when shared among new acquaintances. For those who have work to do, meanwhile, Ghetto Bird can help facilitate concentration on all kinds of tasks and projects.
After a little over an hour, some physical effects creep in to balance out Ghetto Bird’s head high. A progressively weighty feeling may settle into the limbs and core, facilitating deep, easy breathing and helping to relax any tense muscles. If the dosage is increased, this relaxed sensation has the ability to morph into full-on couchlock, pleasantly immobilizing smokers. Fortunately, though, the strain’s mental clarity persists for the duration of the high, allowing users to maintain productivity if they so desire. Because of its slow decline in energy levels, Ghetto Bird is recommended for the afternoon through nighttime consumption, when it can be properly savored.
Ghetto Bird’s balance of mental and physical stimulation can yield several benefits for medical cannabis patients. For one, its cerebral mood may aid focus for those with attention deficit disorders. It can also lift the clouds of mild to moderate stress and depression, albeit only temporarily. Physically speaking, the strain’s body high can numb aches and pains, whether they're temporary and injury-related or due to chronic conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. The strain’s tendency to induce the munchies can even make it a potent appetite stimulant for those suffering from diminished hunger. Because it can result in some recursive, obsessive patterns of thinking, Ghetto Bird is not recommended for patients who are prone to paranoia or panic.
Fortunately for home growers, Dynasty Genetics has made seeds of Ghetto Bird available for purchase online. Once obtained, it can be grown in controlled indoor conditions or in humid outdoor climates with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Judging by their characteristically indica flowers, plants grow short and bushy with strong patterns of lateral branching. Ghetto Bird flowers within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors.
A compelling option for indica and sativa fans alike, Ghetto Bird’s well-rounded high is a great way to unwind. It’s as enjoyable to savor alone as it is to share with friends.
I was in an automobile accident last year around October. I broke my back, ribs, lacerations to my liver, brain injury and multiple other injuries. I was in ICU for about a month. Had back surgery and started recovery. I was sent home on a cocktail of oxycodone, muscle relaxers, and ibuprofen 800. I winded up in the hospital a few times after having to be given morphine and some other high pain relievers. I was on those for a while and weaned myself off because I didn’t want to get addicted to the pain pills. I was introduced to smoking cannabis and some cbd as pain relief so decided to try. For a few weeks I tried strain after strain with really no luck until I just came across Ghetto Bird at a dispensary in Salem, OR. When I tell you this helped not only my pain level but my energy and mood, I just couldn’t believe I actually found something that worked for me. I faithfully bought it when needed and unfortunately it is not sold anywhere in Oregon or even surrounding states anymore ( I looked it up) my opinion is it’s a great pain reliever, a good high in the sense of my having energy and strength to get around and it’s well worth trying. If by chance they have this strain available I would be the first to buy it. Nothing today that I have found comes close to the effects I have had with Ghetto Bird. I go weekly to different dispensaries trying different strains with no luck. If it comes out again to market, please let me know. -David
