For those who enjoy the mysteries in life, we present to you Madagascar, an indica strain full of wonder. Some say that it’s a landrace that hails straight from the country it’s named for, while others don’t really know what it is or where it came from. What is known is that when counting sheep just won’t cut it, this will.
THC levels for Madagascar are unpublished, and while the strain is great for being rather hard-hitting, it’s anyone’s guess exactly where the percentages lie. Nugs tend to be varying shades of green and feature bright orange hairs that can sometimes take on a golden tone. What most people talk about when discussing this strain is the off-putting taste, as flowers and skunk just don’t really make for a nice flavor. However, the aroma of the strain is quite floral on its own and tends to offset any odd flavors.
Madagascar seems to have been introduced to the cannabis industry for one reason alone - to help you fall asleep fast. Given that it only takes a hit or two before you’re completely knocked out, many guess that it has a super high THC level. After all, what else would be able to swoop in and leave you completely non-functional like Madagascar? While those with insomnia will no doubt turn to this strain for relief, it should be noted that the indica effects are rather short-lived.
Users who want to find an effective and quick way to fall asleep will love Madagascar, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it for other medical concerns as well. Given that it puts many into a knocked out type of state, one can assume that stress and depression will go right out the window. This strong sedative is also great for general pain including headaches, cramps, and muscle spasms.
Given that Madagascar doesn’t offer a plethora of well-rounded effects like so many other strains tend to, it may be for the better that home cultivation seems to be an impossibility. With unknown breeders, nowhere to find seeds or clones, and little other information available about this indica strain, you may have to rely on your local dispensary instead of growing your own.
Like many unknowns, this strain could be the answer to your prayers or might make you feel like your time and money could have been better spent somewhere else. Ultimately it depends on your perspective and own personal experience with it. If you see Madagascar at a local shop, why not buy a small amount and see what you think?
