About Randy Savage
It’s the tower of power, too sweet to be sour. Funky like a monkey, where the sky’s the limit and space is the place! Randy Savage, of course, named after the legendary wrestler who gave us the above gem to describe himself and, unbeknownst to him, the strain of his namesake, is a mind-bending, indica-dominant hybrid of unknown origins and unknown breeders. There is some speculation that because of the distinctive flavors that it could possibly be in the skunk family, however, no one knows for sure.
Also known as “Macho Man Randy Savage,” this mysterious strain just keeps stacking up the unknowns. The THC of this strain is not definitive, however, because of its potency it is believed to fall somewhere between 18% and 22%. The buds of this strain are thick and minty green with frosty white trichomes and red and orange intertwining hairs. The aromas are distinctively skunky with hints of astringent lemon and pine. The flavors are pretty similar as well, although the hashiness of the strain comes through on the palate here more so than on the nose.
Users describe the Randy Savage high as almost overwhelming, as its potent effects have the tendency to sweep you off your feet. Plan to be couch locked and unmotivated from the get-go. With a cerebral rush, this high comes in full tingles that start in the back of your head and make their way down your shoulders and into your core with a warming sensation sure to get you fully relaxed. Laziness and low motivation are to be expected as well as an increased sense of euphoria and sleepiness.
The medicinal benefits of this strain cross the entire spectrum, from mood disorders to sleep disorders to pain management. Because of its highly sedative effects, Randy Savage is great for easing the symptoms of chronic pain, insomnia, muscle tension, and in some cases mild inflammation. These properties are also utilized in the treatment of mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, chronic stress, and bipolar. As this is a potent strain, novice users are strongly cautioned before use.
Unfortunately, because of the extreme secrecy of this strain paired with its rarity, grow information is nearly impossible to find. If you find a Randy Savage plant, good luck!
In spite of the minimal information readily available for this strain, it is a stellar ride if you can get your hands on it. Lovers of skunk will enjoy its robust flavors and pungent lemon scent. Like the man himself, this strain packs a heavy wallop and is recommended for night time use. Additionally, novice users may find it too overwhelming and anxiety-inducing, so please proceed with caution.
