Green Ribbon is a balanced hybrid and an upscale crossbreed native to California. The genetics indicate Green Crack, Trainwreck, and some kind of Afghani parent. The THC level in this strain is above average at 20 percent and the CBD content is negligible. This strain is somewhat illusive but most common on the West Coast.
The flavor profile is sweet and sour, musky, and fruity. You may detect pine trees, and some grape and spice in the background. The buds are medium-sized and dense with plenty of trichromes that almost makes the nugs look white. The smoke is smooth and won’t make you cough too much.
While Green Ribbon is a balanced hybrid, 50 percent Sativa and 50 percent Indica, the main effects are on the Sativa side. The herb delivers a rush to the head at first that may feel like euphoria, happiness, creativity, and/or sociability. It might induce a couch-lock coupled with an uplifting high. Either way, the effects are powerful.
Green Ribbon’s genetics are top-notch and help medical users to lose their worries. Despite the low CBD, Green Ribbon is becoming known as extremely helpful to medical patients due to its well-rounded terpene profile.
Medical patients will appreciate the sedative effects of this strain as it helps alleviate symptoms such as pain and headache. Green Ribbon is also suitable for people with the more psychological type of disorders such anxiety, depression, ADHD, and PTSD. With low CBD, this strain is not noted for its abilities to alleviate major disorders such as seizures or Parkinson’s.
Green Ribbon is known as more of an outdoor variety but people do grow it inside as well. As a local California breed, people in other areas had some trouble finding bud, seeds, and clones. That situation is slowly changing. However, people seeking seeds or clones may find that supply and demand is not on their side, and they have to pay a premium price for Green Ribbon. In the cost-benefit analysis, this strains balanced and potent profile is probably worth the extra money.
Some growers have shared their tips for growing this herb. You can follow in their path and use the Lollipop method or the Scrog method to grow this weed. Remove the lower leaves from the canopy to allow the colas on top to get the most nutrition. Leave the fan leaves alone as they are beneficial to the plant, but pick off the yellow leaves as the form.
