About Powder Keg
Powder Keg is rare and exploded onto the scene without making its origins too well-known. Its THC levels are surprisingly moderate for a strain named after its ability to detonate, but that doesn’t mean its effects are underachievers. They creep like a lit fuse before lighting up your brain with an intense, cerebral stoniness. You’ll feel Powder Keg throughout your whole body eventually, though we haven’t experienced too much sleepiness on this strain. It’s better for people that want to feel the effects pop and enjoy their day with a little more calm and a little less pain, not so much those who want to sleep.
The buds are noticeably quite small. Like the effects, the plant is reminiscent of Haze strains. Its exact origins and breeder are not well-known, however, though some sources report that Northern Lights, Schrom, and Haze all play a part in its lineage. The plant is dusty green; the buds are shaped like little grapes.
The taste of Powder Keg favors Sativa spiciness (70/30) with a blast of herbal undertones, again like Haze strains. More specific elements of the taste such as terpene profiles and subtler flavors are not well-known, with many users reporting different experiences but most citing an overwhelming mix of herbs and a slight citrus scent. This is likely due to how rare Powder Keg is. If you get your hands on it, you’ll be a bit of an explorer. Striking out into new flavored lands.
Powder Keg is not the strain for insomniacs – its stony effects actually lead to more alertness and energy, starting with a sense of uplifting euphoria. As the effects creep deeper, they spread to your arms and legs and hit especially hard behind your eyes. Your brain will start to fog up in the aftermath of the explosion, relaxing you but maintaining the uplifting feelings. Stick to daytime use only for your Powder Keg explosions.
As for its uses, users report relief from chronic conditions related to pain, depression, fatigue, and stress. Nausea, headaches, and migraines can also be relieved with a Powder Keg. The relaxation promotes a sense of calm as well as a reduction in stress and fatigue, which may be causing your headaches to begin with.
You may find yourself wanting to sleep after the Powder Keg calms down, but that’s just because you’ll be relaxed. More likely, you’ll be uplifted to keep having a good day and energized to help yourself to a calm afternoon. You practically have to be a real-life pirate to get your hands on this strain, but you’ll reap the rewards if you do.
