With a high that’s as provocative as its name, Sexxpot is an indica strain specifically developed to help boost female libido. Created by innovator and marketed Karyn Wagner, who sought to create an aphrodisiac strain after smoking the arousing Mr. Nice, this is a fragrant variety that provides a mild but stimulating body and head buzz. This sex-positive bud is a cross between fabled mind control experiment drug G-13 and heavy indica Hash Plant. Don’t expect to be knocked out, though -- with only about 15% THC, this strain isn’t liable to interfere with your daily agenda.
Flowers of Sexxpot aren’t particularly eye-catching, with small buds clinging together in dense, popcorn-like form. The mossy green leaves are coiled tightly around their central stems and are twisted through with pale yellow and orange pistils. Frequently, phenotypes of the strain also display flashes of purple in their leaves; these hues are the result of a process in which pigments called anthocyanins are stimulated by colder than average weather during the growing process. Only a light dusting of white trichomes covers the outer surfaces of these flowers, accounting for their relatively low THC content.
When properly cured, Sexxpot carries a tropical, fruity aroma. There are also some bright floral accents hanging out underneath. Some users pick on a sour, skunky character as well. When burnt in a pipe or a joint, Sexxpot gives off a harsh, acrid smoke that may sting the sinuses and palate. This smoke has a fruity taste on exhale, along with a skunk, slightly fermented aftertaste.
Sexxpot has a high that takes hold quickly, first exerting pressure around the eyes and temples and then conferring a slight dizzy feeling. Though it’s a mostly indica strain, some initial sativa effects can be detected; external stimuli like bright lights or loud sounds make seem more interesting than they otherwise might. There’s also an uptick in freely-associative thinking and a definite lowering of inhibitions that lends itself to creative thinking. At this point, a subtle body buzz may set in as well, relieving tension and allowing for slow, deep breathing. Sexxpot’s easygoing vibes work particularly well in social situations. The combination of mental and physical effects also lends itself to activities that involve both body and mind, like exercise, playing video games, and, as this strain makes clear, sex -- indeed, the same unfettered mental energy that allows creative users to brainstorm also frees them up to have exciting, stimulating sex. Because it is neither overly buzz nor overly sedative, Sexxpot is appropriate for use at any time of day.
Besides the obvious stated goals of increasing sexual desire and potency, Sexxpot may have several other uses for medical cannabis patients. It can soothe acute aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. The bud’s anti-inflammatory effects can also take care of annoyances like headaches and nausea. On the psychological side of the spectrum, Sexxpot can temporarily take the edge off of mild to moderate cases of stress, depression, and anxiety. Finally, because this strain is not likely to bring about the kind of intense, recursive thinking that can lead to paranoia, it is a good choice for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of Sexxpot are not available for sale online. As such, those looking to grow this therapeutic strain at home must obtain clipigns from mature plants in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” Although there’s little information available regarding specific best practices for growing Sexxpot, we know that, like many indicas, it may fare best indoors where its bushy, laterally-spreading plants are easily accommodated. Additionally, those looking to bring out the flowers’ blue and purple bag appeal should briefly expose their crops to nighttime temperatures between 10 and 15 degrees colder than average.
