A strain that’s rich with history, Highwayman is bred in Colorado by Tierra Rojo Seeds. They crossed William’s Wonder with Tang Tang and supposedly named the bud after a supergroup of musicians that included Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and others. Very difficult to find on dispensary shelves, this evenly balanced hybrid brings the ultimate in therapeutic relief.
Easy-going effects along with an average of 20% THC make Highwayman approachable for all. Her buds are a bit deceiving as they appear to be very light but actually form a rather dense structure. Streaks of gold are splattered across a bright green base with tons of frosty trichomes to boot. Ideal for a morning wake and bake session, this strain brings strong flavors of coffee and chocolate to your palate and fills the air with a delicious aroma of a similar nature.
Think for a moment about the type of weed that Mr. Nelson himself would likely use, and then take a puff of Highwayman and experience it for yourself. A happy and clear-headed surge of energy will immediately fill you from head to toe without being overwhelming and creative thoughts flow like never before. Levels of focus may vary here, and before long, tingles will begin at your temples and make their way to your toes. Relaxation will play a role in your high but won’t leave you sedated in the slightest.
Some may describe Highwayman as the ultimate “feel good” strain, making it a top pick for those who need medical relief from the moment they wake up. Users are so happy during this high that stress and depression become a thing of the past, allowing for only positive thoughts to make their way to your consciousness. If you struggle with fatigue, a few tokes will put some pep in your step, and bodily pain including headaches or even inflammation are also soothed fairly quickly.
Breeders note that Highwayman is a great strain for first-time home cultivators, and while plants can end up being rather tall, they are sturdy and require minimal care aside from their basic needs. Indoor growth may need some slight pruning from time to time with outdoor cultivation resulting in a relatively easy process. Allow this plant between 8 and 10 weeks to fully mature and you’ll be gifted with a medium sized yield.
Highwayman is practically a legend already in the cannabis world, allowing users to tap into their creative side and enjoy exciting effects along with delicious flavors. As is recommended with any strain, try a bit at home first before heading into the office just to see how you react. While she’s not overly sedating, this bud may send you into vacation mode a little more heavily than you’d like.
