Lavender, also known as Soma #10, is an Indica-dominant hybrid that has placed first in many competitions and carries a THC count as high as 19%.
Its spicy Afghani hash-like taste is smooth and comes with a powerful euphoria. Its cerebral high is followed by a swirling body stone that calms and relaxes, causing most to feel lazy. Inexperienced users may quickly fall asleep. Negative effects may include the familiar cotton mouth, dry eyes, dizziness, and paranoia.
Lavender may be used at any time of the day, but some prefer it in the evening or at night to help with insomnia. The strain is often used for pain relief due to its powerful Indica effects. It is an effective medication for stress, anxiety, and depression and is prescribed for PTSD, adult ADD/ADHD as well as obsessive compulsive behavior. Patients also use it to fight nausea and eating disorders such as anorexia. The high CBD content, reaching as much as 1%, may also help combat seizures.
Lavender has rich and diverse genetics. Created by Soma Seeds, the strain is a cross between Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, and Afghani Hawaiian. Growing well both indoors and out, this strain does best when grown using the Sea of Green technique. A shorter vegetation cycle, however, is recommended for that particular method to control height. Flowering for eight to ten weeks, Lavender produces a lower yield: between 150 and 200 grams per square meter.
Great for evening use, relaxing and aromatic.
Overrated in my opinion...at least the crop that I smoked. Nice, mellow buzz, but it just couldn't get me to that upper level high I experience smoking in a legal state (Colorado). It left me expecting more and waiting for that "melt into the couch" feeling, but it never arrived.
I have cultivated this wonderful plant for over two seasons and has always given me great satisfaction both for its healing properties and for the good amount of harvest. Excellent.
I picked up a gram of Lavender from the grower Green Life Productions. I found this strain to be too light. It was relaxing but I did not acheive the pain relief I was hoping for. The effects from Lavender were mild and short lived. I would, however, suggest this strain for nervous first time users.
