About Pirate Radio
Named for the trend phenomenon of rogue radio stations that broadcast without a license, or possibly for the film, Pirate Radio is a sativa-dominant hybrid with powerful mental effects. A genetic combination of Sour Bubble and Somali Taxi Ride that was created by Colorado-based breeders The Farm and levels of THC have been measured between 23% and 28%.
Pirate Radio’s flowers have an elongated shape and a relatively solid internal composition. These long, leafy columns are a dappled mix of dark green and dark purple, the latter hues are caused by the high concentrations of the pigment anthocyanin. Curly red pistils and very sticky translucent trichomes finish off these eye-catching flowers. Aromatically, these buds give off rich notes of pine, alongside some fruity accents and burns with a light, fruity smoke.
As with many other sativa strains, her high hits hard and fast, activating a new plane of cerebral activity. This mental stimulation can help when working on detail-oriented tasks or with creative solutions. She can inspire free-flowing conversation, when shared with good friends or new acquaintances. Even after an hour or so, her mental energy isn’t disturbed by any burdensome physical effects, so while one may feel relief from aches and pains, it’s unlikely to result in total couch lock. Take advantage of her dual stimulation to enjoy some activities that require mental and physical coordination. Her mostly upbeat and buzzy vibe makes a good choice for daytime consumption. Depending on your level of experience she also makes for a nice wake-and-bake treat.
Pirate Radio’s versatile high can also be of use to some medical patients. The onset of mental stimulation can help those who struggle with ADD and her steady euphoria may temporarily improve some symptoms of mild to moderate stress and depression. Pirate Radio’s anti-inflammatory properties may reduce the severity of everyday discomforts like cramps or headaches. As she is dominated by her sativa side, consumers who are prone to panic or newer users so toke with caution.
The Farm has kept their seeds and secrets for themselves, so be on the lookout for a plant to get clones from or a random seed mixed in with the buds. Based off of her indica-leaning flowers, plants should grow short and bushy, and flower within some 8 to 10 weeks. Want to make the purple hue pop? Just before flowering begins, carefully expose crops to cold - but not freezing - temperatures between 55 and 65 degrees.
A must-try for sativa fans, Pirate Radio offers some mild physical relaxation to balance out its soaring head high.
