The "Peyton Manning" medical Cannabis strain originated in Denver, Colorado, in September of 2013 and was released exactly one week after the Denver Broncos opening day win against the Baltimore Ravens in which Peyton Manning threw an NFL-tying record of 7 touchdown passes in the contest.
The newly-minted "Peyton Manning" medical marijuana strain promptly made the social media rounds and was the trending topic on twitter the day the strain became available in Denver area dispensaries. The strain was initially released to the public by a picture on twitter showing the cleverly packaged cannabis.
The strain is Sativa-dominant one which offers both a cerebral and body high that is typical of most hybrids. It's Sativa properties lend itself to an uplifting, thought-provoking and euphoric high accompanied with the sedating body high of a strong Indica. The strain's Indica properties also make it an ideal strain for joint pain generally associated with MS. It is also recommended for anxiety and depression based disorders such as PTSD, ADD, ADHD and bi-polar disorder.
It's lineage stems from the Chem 91 strain (a Sativa-Dominant strain with THC percentages in the low 20's and derived from the Chemdawg strain) and SFV OG Kush of San Fernando Valley which is a 70% Indica strain with heavy origins of both Kush and OG Kush.
