Perhaps it’s because of how ferocious it seems on the outside, or it’s the strength in which her effects set in, but Hammerhead is a strain that was very appropriately named. This cross between White Rhino and Medicine Man was developed by mystery breeders, however we certainly aren’t complaining. A strongly indica-dominant bud, Hammerhead will be key in ending your day on the right foot.
THC levels aren’t incredibly high here, with an average of 20% that might sometimes feel more like 30% if you aren’t careful. Buds are compact and dark green with very noticeable blue undertones. Light colored hairs and tiny trichomes await you with a sparkling sheen that practically lures you in. Overall, this strain has a very fruity and sweet flavor and aroma, although during your exhale you may detect a hint of earth and spice.
Like all good things in life, there are ups and downs with Hammerhead, and your high will begin with a boost to your mental state that’s second to none. Euphoric won’t even begin to describe how you feel, as all worries and cares simply wash away like the ocean tide. However, this happy and sometimes giggly state won’t infuse you with any sort of energy, and as time goes on, your desire to remain still will increase. Soon enough, you might find yourself sleeping on the couch, or wherever you happened to be when you took your last toke.
Based upon her effects, what sorts of issues could this strain possibly be helpful for? You guessed it, mental concerns and insomnia definitely top the list. Any instances of stress or depression can be hard to shake, especially if they’re related to certain events in your life that you can’t control, but Hammerhead allows you to release yourself from their grip for one night. Also highly effective on bodily pain, this strain is a great choice for treating headaches, cramps, and can even help overcome a lack of appetite. Oh, did we mention there’s also about 2% CBD in this bud? She just keeps getting better and better, right?
Wrong, because although growing this strain at home sounds like it’s a fairly routine adventure, it appears that seeds have been sold out online for a handful of years. If you do come across the chance to cultivate your own Hammerhead, an indoor or outdoor setup will be just fine. After about 8 weeks, you’ll be ready to harvest and enjoy a large personal stash.
It seems as if this bud is becoming more and more rare by the day, so if you do find some locally, stock up before she’s gone forever. Make sure to clear your calendar, get your bed all ready to go, and indulge in one of the most relaxing nights of your life.
