About Ingrid

Ingrid is a potent indica-dominant hybrid that’s slowly picking up traction as a potent way to treat pain and insomnia. This heavy bud is a cross between the notoriously pungent UK Cheese and classic indica Hash Plant. It offers mostly physically-focused effects, with the fringe benefit of quieting stress and loud mental chatter. The squeamish should beware, as Ingrid has inherited all the stinkiness of both her parent strains. In any case, this bud’s THC content can’t be denied, clocking in at between 19% and 25%.

Ingrid is marked by thick, spade-shaped nuggets that range in size from small to medium. These buds have the tight bud structure typically associated with indicas. The densely-packed leaves are a bright shade of lime green. Curly orange and brown pistils twist their way through this vivid greenery. Finally, a heavy coating of translucent white trichomes gives these flowers a dewy, wet appearance and a silvery sheen.

Upon initial inspection of Ingrid’s flowers, the influence of UK Cheese is clear -- the buds give off an almost fermented, cheesy odor. This acrid scent is undercut by the mellow scent of damp earth and wood. Meanwhile, grinding up the dense buds yields some skunky, tangy notes. Perhaps unsurprisingly, when combusted, Ingrid burns with a harsh, acrid smoke that that’s liable to make smokers’ eyes water. This funky smoke leaves behind a lingering taste of cheese and soil on the exhale. Ingrid’s dank odor can carry quite a distance -- smokers looking to maintain discretion should take any necessary precauations.

Ingrid hits very quickly for an indica. Within short order, a throbbing of blood vessels in the face -- particularly around the eyes and temples -- will manifest as a sign of this strain’s potency. Soon thereafter, a psychedelic mindset may take over, with smokers’ sensory perception becoming gradually distorted. External stimuli like certain sounds or bright lights can seem more intense or interesting than they otherwise might; a sense of time dilation is also commonly reported. Users shouldn’t plan on getting a mountain of work accomplished after consuming this pungent bud. Instead, a dreamy, easily distractible mindset is likely to persist for hours. As such, Ingrid is great for spacing out with some atmospheric music or a mellow movie. The bud can also be a great way to end a long day or week of work, either alone or with some like-minded friends. It should come as no shock that couch lock is a frequent side effect, as is dry mouth. Because of its sleepy, low-energy vibes, Ingrid is best enjoyed after dark or just before bed.

Ingrid’s relaxing properties can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. The bud may dull pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to minor injury, or chronic, as due to nerve damage or conditions like lupus or arthritis. It can also provide temporary relief from the harsh symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, and even PTSD. Finally, Ingrid can act as a cure for insomnia -- in fact, budtenders at Colorado-based dispensary chain Good Chemistry recently touted the bud with cheeky t-shirts reading “Everyone sleeps with Ingrid.” Because it doesn’t often lead to the kind of intense, recursive thinking patterns that lead to paranoia, Ingrid is a good choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.

Seeds of Ingrid do not appear to be available for sale online. As such, prospective home growers must obtain clippings from a trusted source in order to grow genetically identical clones of the plant. Ingrid can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The strain flowers within a brief 5 to 7 weeks when grown indoors and offers a high yield of flowers. Finally, for those looking to keep their indoor growing operations under wraps, this can be a uniquely pungent crop that may call for odor-control measures like exhaust fans or carbon air filters.

Although popular in West Coast markets, this bud’s strong sedative effects have it primed for a nationwide debut. Ingrid’s strong flavor profile and knockout effects insure that she’s a strain users won’t forget quickly.

Ingrid is an amazing indica strain!! I first stumbled across this strain about 2 years ago. After maybe 6 months it suddenly vanished from every dispensary in San Diego. I’ve spent countless hours scouring menus all across town ever since then without any luck. Until about 2 weeks ago a friend tohld me he found a place with Ingrid!! So happy! No other strain comes close to treating my anxiety, insomnia and other pain problems so well. Ingrid has an amazing calming effect. I don’t understand why there isn’t more demand for this strain. Such a unique smelling/tasting bud with amazing medicinal value.
