Kryptonite is an Indica strain that is widely described as incredibly potent. Some reports show a THC range between 25% and 30%. To put this in perspective, an average Indica strain of medicinal quality features THC counts of roughly 12%-15%. Note that this strain differs from the strain known as Kryptonite OG.
The effects of this strain hit hard and last long, providing a powerful body buzz that often makes users of all experience levels feel sedated and lethargic. A body high, coupled with a strong sense of euphoria, may produce a feeling of floating. Regular use often stimulates creative inspiration and an inclination to write, paint, meditate, and do yoga. Low doses may not completely drain regular users, but negative effects may include dry mouth and eyes, paranoia, anxiety, and dizziness.
This strain is very effective for treating aches and pains of any severity, all day long. The uplifting effects of Kryptonite are also used to treat stress, anxiety, and depression. People suffering from insomnia have highlighted Kryptonite as their favorite strain for evening medication, specifically due to its sedating attributes. Others find that the strain stimulates appetite and calms nausea.
Kryptonite is reportedly a cross between Killer Queen and The Purps, produced by the infamous breeders at Oaksterdam University. The strain can be successfully cultivated both indoors and out, and plants flower for eight to ten weeks to produce a moderate yield. Although it is considered relatively easy to cultivate, this strain is not recommended for novice growers. True Kryptonite is clone only.
