About Medicine Woman
When chronic pain or the blues have you feeling down, this lady knows how to medicate you in just the right way. Medicine Woman is the brainchild of Oregon medicinal grower David Verstoppen, who created this hybrid from Hast Plant, G13, and Dynamite. Aiming to ease his wife’s fibromyalgia, Verstoppen ended up creating a strain that won second place in the 2011 Oregon Medical Cannabis Awards and packs a serious punch of relief.
This 60/40 sativa-dominant hybrid brings users a ton of THC, often averaging around 23%, but won’t get you quite as stoned as you’d think. Pain relief is it’s number one claim to fame and will have you feeling creative and happy in no time. Nugs have a distinctive earthy aroma to them, mixing with notes of sweet citrus and a bit of spice. Smokers will note that the flavor profile closely mirrors its aroma, yet a bit of diesel also shows up as well, causing many to cough upon exhale.
Medicine Woman is a beautiful strain, with long and vibrant nugs that have almost a purple cast to them. Trichomes are abundant as well as strikingly orange pistils. Just a few hits will instantly put you into a state of intense relaxation, as you’ll feel rather sedated from the get-go. Rather than feeling unable to complete the most mundane task, this strain brings a high that infuses a bit of energy into your body and gives you enough mental clarity to explore your creative side.
Individuals who are plagued by chronic pain, fatigue, stress, or depression often lean on Medicine Woman to get through the day. Since it works quickly to relax body and mind, many find it works great as a bedtime smoke or a way to get through a particularly painful afternoon. Those who struggle with their appetite will also find Medicine Woman gives them the munchies, helping them to fuel their body with food. However, those prone to anxiety may want to take it easy with this lady, as it can heighten some worrisome feelings.
Fairly easy to cultivate at home, Medicine Woman yields an average amount of buds with plants that flower anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. It can be grown both inside and outdoors, but some note a problem with rot when it’s exposed to the elements. Overall, this strain is great for beginners and will add a nice supply to your stash.
When you need pain relief or just want a mellow day to get your creative juices flowing, Medicine Woman is for you. Prepare yourself for a strong smoke and you’ll be well on your way to a relaxing and euphoric day that keeps you clear-headed and pain-free.
