About Mandarin Dreams
Mandarin Dreams is an evenly balanced hybrid strain of cannabis first grown in the United States. Attributed to the Colorado-based cannabis company Ethos Genetics, Mandarin Dreams is a cross between Mandarin Sunset and Stormtrooper OG. This uplifting and flavorful strain has become quite popular in the markets where it is sold and in places where personal grows are legal, as it is quite the producer. Mandarin Dreams, as an evenly-balanced strain, can be enjoyed during the daytime or the evening as the effects are largely subjective and experienced by each consumer differently. The strain contains an average THC concentration of 20%, though some batches have been tested in excess of 25%.
Mandarin Dreams takes on the physical aspects that are typically attributed to Sativa-dominant strains. The buds present as elongated, pepper-shaped buds with winding orange hairs. These buds are bright green, often described as neon-green, with a coat of amber-colored trichomes which add a ton of bag appeal to the strain.
These buds produce an incredibly pleasant aroma that’s often described as incense-like. You should expect the aroma to explode from these buds when you break them down by hand or by grinder, producing smells of sour citrus, earth, fruit, and a bit of pungent diesel fuel. Most consumers who have written about the strain rave about its wonderful aroma in addition to its flavor which is a delight to experience. Some have written that the strain tastes like sour citrus, with a creamy exhale that resembles a bit of sharp herbs.
Although the effects of this strain are largely balanced, many of the reviews of this strain rave about its wonderfully relaxing effects that are perfect for a lazy afternoon smoke session. The effects of this strain hit both the mind and body with wave after wave of calming relaxation that ease the mind and any physical woes you might be experiencing.
At the onset of the high, you might experience a rush of creative focus that will have you accomplishing all of your chores and to-do’s before the sun sets. Mandarin Dreams’ effects are also a bit cerebral, ushering in mental clarity that will have you on-task and focused for hours on end before subsiding into a state of deep relaxation. Some find that this strain also works as an excellent tool for winding down in the evening before a long rest after a stressful day at work.
