There’s a mountain range that spans between Oregon and Northern California that produces a variety of wine from its sun-kissed fields, but grapes aren’t the only crop that’s been planted. Lovers of balanced hybrids just might become obsessed with Ol’ Betsy, a strain by Liontree Farms with an undisclosed genetic background. Said to be great for various times of the day depending on what’s on your calendar, it’s a bud that could find a permanent place in your lineup.
Ol’ Betsy clocks in with a very consistent THC percentage, making her 20% mark appropriate for most types of users. Small buds are dense and feature shades of dull green and brown with minimal pistils but a rather thick coating of trichomes. Although we don’t know who her parents are, one can guess based upon her flavors and aromas, as they feature notes that are both sweet and skunky. If you’re an experienced smoker and have a particular love of pungent bud, Ol’ Betsy will be right up your alley.
Dosage has a lot to do with one’s high, and when it comes to Ol’ Betsy, even seasoned smokers might want to tread lightly. This strain has been reported to infuse a massive burst of euphoria instantly after toking, making you happier than you ever thought possible. Along with this joy often comes the ability to focus, helping people to zero in on tasks that have been on their to-do list for a while. Some find themselves to be a bit more chatty, but nearly everyone reports the same thing after a while - Ol’ Betsy makes you feel relaxed from head to toe, and if you aren’t careful, she could lead to sleep.
Unfortunately, home growers who have their sights set on this gal are in for a bit of a disappointment as seeds of Ol’ Betsy are very difficult to find. Liontree Farms themselves don’t even have a very strong online presence, leading many to believe that they’re quite happy keeping their unique strains to themselves. Rumor has it that cultivating Ol’ Betsy at home is moderately difficult and requires you to wait anywhere from 7 to 10 weeks before she’s ready, but no one really knows how accurate that information is.
It’s no surprise that this strain is so well-rounded when it comes to her flavors and effects, as the head proprietor has a long-standing history with cultivation. For those who want to enjoy relaxing effects without feeling too terribly out of it, consider Ol’ Betsy. If you’re lucky, she might even help you to cross some things off of your task list before whisking you away to dreamland.
