About Grand Hustle
Grand Hustle is a well-balanced hybrid that’s descended from two powerhouse strains: Afgoo and the notorious Green Crack. The resulting bud has a strong, multi-layered flavor and effects that lean slightly sativa. Grand Hustle’s THC content has been measured at between 16% and 23%.
Grand Hustle is marked by solid flowers that range in size from medium to quite large. They stick together in long, column-like formations and have a decidedly indica structure, with small leaves that twist tightly inward toward their central stems. These compacted leaves are a medium, mossy green and are twisted through with curly brown and orange hairs (which are actually pistils, meant to catch pollen from male plants). Finally, Grand Hustle’s buds are coated in sticky white trichomes.
Flowers of Grand Hustle carry a pronounced earthy scent, redolent of damp soil and dried leaves. There is also a sweet, herbal aroma at play. Grinding up the buds for consumption in a pipe or a joint, meanwhile, may result in a rich, hashy odor, reminiscent of grandparent strain Afghani. When it is burnt, Grand Hustle gives off a thick and harsh smoke that may trigger some coughing or watery eyes. This smoke has a woodsy and somewhat sour taste on the exhale.
Like many other sativa-dominant strains, Grand Hustle begins to trot out its effects soon after it is consumed. Initially, the strain exerts a palpable headrush, resulting in tics like an increased pulse in the temples or some flushing in the cheeks. As these sensations become more familiar, they give way to an uptick in cerebral activity. Smokers may find their thoughts moving more quickly than usual or taking on a significance that they might not otherwise have. This stimulated, freely-associative state of mind can help motivate users to work on detailed, problem-oriented tasks. It may also allow for productivity on freewheeling creative projects. Additionally, Grand Hustle can provide some mellow mental white noise for consumers working on boring chores or errands.
As time passes -- or as dosage is stepped up -- Grand Hustle begins to unfurl its soothing indica side as well. A distinct feeling of relaxation may sweep over the core while limbs and eyelids might begin to feel weighed down. While this phase of the high may not necessarily pin consumers down with couchlock, it can strip away some earlier motivation and can render productivity somewhat unappealing. In some cases, Grand Hustle’s eventual combination of mental and physical effects can make it a great way to enhance activities that involve complex, full-body coordination, like dancing, exercising, and even sex. Otherwise, Grand Hustle’s mellow mood can be enjoyable for those looking to wind down at the end of the day, either alone or with others.
Grand Hustle’s versatile effects can have many applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its tuend-in sativa influence can drive focus and concentration for those struggling with attention deficit disorders. The bud’s uplifted mood can also temporarily improve the symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. On the physical end of the spectrum, this strain may relieve aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to diseases like arthritis or lupus. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, can soothe minor discomforts like headaches or cramps. Because it can bring about strong, recursive modes of thinking, Grand Hustle is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
Seeds of Grand Hustle have not been made available for sale online. Instead, prospective home growers should find a trusted source from which to obtain clippings from mature plants. These clippings can be fostered as “clones” and can be cultivated indoors or out -- although success outdoors requires a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Although there is little information available on specific best practices for growing this strain, its indica-inflected flowers suggest that plants of Grand Hustle grow short and squat and flower within 8 to 9 weeks.
With a dynamic and long-lasting high, Grand Hustle is a must-try for both indica and sativa lovers. It complex blend of flavors provides added appeal.
