About Power Africa
Power Africa is a Sativa-heavy favorite (70/30) by the breeder, Seedsman, a company that has been growing cannabis out of Spain for 20 years. The strain is reported to have South African genetics, including Durban Poison, as well as a hybrid between Haze and Skunk #1. If you love dense yields and reliable Sativa genetics, Power Africa is an international treat.
Growing Power Africa should be attempted outdoors only at higher latitudes due to the strain’s resistances (and vulnerabilities). When it’s done growing, the strain has dense, flat buds that are like big lumpy hearts, light mint green in color, and covered in thin orange pistils. The nugs are spattered with small crystals, enough to sparkle but not a huge amount.
GROWING TIPS: To protect the strain from temperature drops in the Fall, many breeders recommend a greenhouse setup for Power Africa so you can carefully replicate its native growing conditions. This will increase the strain’s yields too, which should be ready for harvesting in around 56-63 days. Thankfully, this mid-sized bud is mold-resistant, though you may want to watch out for its pungent odor and invest in a filtration system to properly vent the smell.
The effects of Power Africa come on with creeping, happiness-inducing sneakiness. The strain takes up shop behind your forehead and gets to work kicking out negative thoughts and producing feelings of high-minded clarity, creativity, and euphoria. It will be hard to be sad on Power Africa but easy to meditate and work. If you hope to relax with some heady friends and have creative, deep conversations for hours, this strain will zap the doubt and inhibitions right out of you. You’ll be talking and racing yet tranquil and happy.
The strain’s flavor comes packed with fruit, like a sweet atmosphere of apple, and gives way to spicy herbs and earthiness with a touch of sour on the aftertaste. We recommend partaking of this strain for its ability to relieve negative thoughts and depression, mellow out a mood swing, and boost you up with creative energy out of the doldrums of fatigue.
The strain pairs great with hanging out with friends due to how it loosens your tongue and boosts your mood. It’s a great afternoon and early evening strain. Provided you’re not ready to be done with the day yet, Power Africa could be your source of power when fatigue and depression threaten to set in.
