A beloved strain by smokers across the United States, Megatron has a bit of a confusing past. No one has pinpointed her original breeders and even genetic reports vary with some saying that she’s a descendent of OG Kush crossed with a mystery plant. Others believe Megatron was birthed after crossing Northern Lights Haze and Chemdawg #4. Either way, she’s a strain you have to try.
Ideal for experienced cannabis lovers, this gal hits a high of 25% THC. Her fluffy nugs almost look as if they’re on fire with red undertones, bright pistils, and amber trichomes that glitter. Most agree that no matter who her parents are, her flavors and aromas remain much the same. A blend of spice, pine, earth, and sour citrus is bold enough to put a slight pep in your step, but won’t provide any energy that’s lasting. If anything, you might cough a few times after your first inhale.
Most report that Megatron is potent when it comes to her effects, helping to bring the ultimate relaxation in both physical and cerebral form. Initially, it’s possible to notice a burst of creativity that’s coupled with joy, however, most users don’t necessarily get to accomplish much of anything during this time as energy tends to be lacking. That’s not Megatron’s goal anyway, as this strain is intended to help you unwind after a long day or take advantage of a lazy weekend. If feeling completely mellow is on your agenda, this bud won’t let you down.
As great as she is for recreational use, Megatron is equally loved for therapeutic applications. As is nearly every other aspect of her makeup, this strain’s CBD potency is questionable with some claiming that they’ve found her with up to 10% CBD. Whether she’s that strong or not, it’s likely that you’ll be able to find some relief from anxiety and depression as well as physical pain. Anyone dealing with nausea or a loss of appetite may be surprised to find that the munchies sometimes kick in fairly strongly with this strain.
It’s hard enough to find seeds or clones of some of your favorite bud even when her breeders are well-known, so imagine just how under the radar Megatron is when it comes to cultivation. Whoever developed her doesn’t seem to want to share, so your best bet is to search for a stray seed during your next flower purchase. Ultimately, this strain could be a limited release or may not even be in production any longer.
Megatron can be tough to find at local dispensaries so it’s advised that you keep her name in the back of your mind every time you make a purchase. With flavors that are tantalizing and effects that work to soothe just about everyone, she makes for an ideal bedtime toke or a great way to check out from the world for a few hours on a weekend.
