We’re all for some surprises in life, but Highlands from Tweed is definitely one of those strains that brings some mystery to your stash. An indica-dominant bud that has roots within the Afghan family, this strain comes with a relaxing set of effects that are ideal for more experienced users.
THC levels often reach as high as 27% here, with buds that are large but not super dense. Trichomes are plentiful, letting users know that they’re in for one powerful treat. As far as flavors and aromas are concerned, it seems that this varies a bit depending on your batch. Some experience a more earthy and woody mixture while others note sweeter hints of honey on the palate.
Highlands will bring a solid high into your life with effects that kick in pretty quickly. Relaxation is priority number one with this bud, so make sure your calendar is cleared before you toke. Given that this strain is in fact a hybrid, you’ll certainly experience a mixture of cerebral and physical effects, making this a great option for relaxing at home and delving deep into any creative thoughts you might have. Trying to actually act on those ideas is another matter entirely, and depending on your tolerance, you may end up feeling completely sedated for the remainder of the night.
As with many of the strains from Tweed, Highlands brings an equally robust set of medical applications to one’s life alongside recreational fun. Individuals who struggle with stress or mild depression will find that the cheery disposition of this bud will help them to see things in a brighter light, and issues of bodily pain are also handled quite easily. Munchies can tend to kick in rather strong for some, so make sure to have some snacks available. It should be noted that Highlands can induce paranoia in some, so if you have a tendency to feel that way while high, you may want to choose another strain.
Strains with secretive genetics aren’t often made available for people to grow at home, and Highlands is no exception. Tweed has kept this bud a carefully guarded secret, and not even the slightest hint of how to take care of her has been disseminated. Thankfully, this strain seems to be fairly popular, so finding her at your local dispensary should be easy.
Above all else, we’d make one blanket recommendation when it comes to Highlands - tread carefully. Her flavors are great and the level of relaxation she brings is outstanding, but the last thing you want is to feel extreme paranoia during your experience. Know your limits and Highlands just might be your new favorite bud.
