With a taste like it came right out of Willy Wonka's candy factory, Nerds is a hybrid-strain designed by the breeders of the Oregon Microgrowers Guild. Specifically it was the brainchild of Adam Jacques, who is also the owner and head grower of the guild. He started by choosing Grape Ape from Barney's Farm and crossed it with a Strawberry Cough from the BC Bud Depot. The resulting plant from that was then back-crossed with another plant of the same phenotype. Finally, that plant was self pollinated to make Nerds an S1 hybrid. About half Indica and half Sativa, the strain's effects are relaxing andÂ almost meditative.
Tasting of hash and grapes, with a bit of strawberry, Nerds may be a good choice for patients with anxiety, stress and mood disorders. It's light bodily effects may ease some aches and pains as well as nausea. The strain may also help fight the symptoms of PTSD.
This strain grows short and can do well inside, outside or even a greenhouse. Nerds should be given at least four weeks, if not five, to finish vegetating. The strain flowers for eight to nine weeks and will produce a gram per watt indoors. Outside growers may have harvests up to a pound per plant.
