It’s easy to visualize the pattern by the same name, but Houndstooth by Tweed is a little more difficult to wrap one’s head around. This strain seems to be a variety of things all rolled into one, and since no one but the Tweed team knows which genetics to thank, understanding this sativa-dominant strain has been a bit of a guessing game.
One thing that’s clear is that Houndstooth is ideal for most users with an average of 16% THC. Her nugs tend to be dense and purple in tone with minimal pistils and a very fine coating of sugar-like trichomes. Some might say that this strain brings an acquired taste to the table, and while notes of lemon are present, there’s also a strong chemical vibe that blends with sweet earth. Prepare yourself for a little bit of coughing as you exhale, but then get ready for the ride of your life.
Houndstooth kicks in with a cerebral dose of energy that’s second to none. Acting as a complete stimulant while helping you to feel motivated and inspired, it’s a great wake and bake option when you want to get things done. If you’re not used to getting high regularly, be prepared for a bit of a giggly experience at first, but rest assured you’ll settle into a good groove in no time. Eventually, your comedown will include a bit of relaxation that’s welcome and not at all heavy.
For medical issues that often leave you completely drained of energy even after a good night of sleep, Houndstooth is the ideal choice. Fatigue will leave you quickly and in its place, a positive outlook on life with plenty of get up and go will be left. Equally as effective for mental issues and physical ones, this strain will help to soothe depression and stress while taking the edge off of headaches, cramps, and more. Some users report that Houndstooth is also helpful when trying to overcome a lack of appetite, so make sure to have snacks handy.
Interested in growing your own Houndstooth at home? So is everyone else, yet Tweed keeps their strains under lock and key. It’s understandable too, as the cannabis industry is becoming so competitive that making seeds and clones readily available just doesn’t make much sense anymore.
Keep your eyes out for Houndstooth the next time you visit your local dispensary and experience more energy and motivation than you’ve likely had since your childhood. While her flavors may take some getting used to, this bud is solid enough to deserve a slot in your regular smoking rotation.
