About Oregon Pinot Noir
Wine lovers will rejoice when they hear about this strain that was born and bred in a vineyard in Oregon, thus earning herself the name Oregon Pinot Noir. By crossing Pit Bull with Hawaiian Purple Kush, unnamed breeders have created a potent strain that gets you drunkenly high in the best way possible.
Oregon Pinot Noir is a fantastically strong strain that tops out at 28% THC, making it suitable only for those who can handle their weed. Nugs are gorgeous with a deep green tone, hints of purple, amber pistils, and extremely chunky trichomes. Both flavors and aromas here are complex and flavorful, with a nutty grape taste that’s accented by a sweet fruit note. In some instances, a bit of skunk also adds to the complexity of this powerful bud.
Despite her sativa-dominant nature, Oregon Pinot Noir tends to provide mostly indica effects that leave you happy and relaxed. While your mood will initially be boosted to a euphoric place that often encourages creativity, the bulk of your high will be hazy and mellow. Depending on your tolerance, you might find yourself slightly glued to the couch, or at the very least moving as if you’re underwater. A pleasant body buzz also imparts a case of the tingles that are incredibly complimentary to the overall experience.
Strains that measure heavy on the THC are often ideal choices for medical patients, and Oregon Pinot Noir is no exception. Sedative effects aside, one of the main uses for this strain is to aid in combating nausea and pain, but the mental benefits of this bud shouldn’t be overlooked either. Stress and depression fall by the wayside as your mood is lifted to a place of pure joy, and if you smoke enough of it, this strain will help with insomnia in nearly no time at all.
As is common within the cannabis industry, strains from unknown breeders are often difficult to bring into your home garden, and Oregon Pinot Noir is no exception to that rule. Some reports note that she has a pretty short flowering time of only 6 to 7 weeks and that either indoor or outdoor cultivation will be just fine. However, these same sources note that there aren’t any seeds on the market either.
Popular in Canada and the Pacific Northwest, keep your eyes out for this delicious and powerful strain. While it’s certainly not a bud for everyone, those who have a higher tolerance will enjoy the relaxing effects and balanced flavors that she brings. Save some of Oregon Pinot Noir for the next time you need to get away from the world for a few hours. Whether you replace your nightly glass of wine with this strain or it becomes your ideal way to unwind after work, it’s a strain that’s definitely worth trying.
