Short and Sweet
About Short and Sweet
A phrase that many people tend to favor, this strain by Heavyweight Seeds is actually anything but. Short and Sweet, a slightly sativa-dominant bud, can actually be rather powerful thanks to her genetic makeup. By crossing AK-49 with White Widow, the team in Spain developed a strain that’s great for use later in the day, as she typically provides sedation along with a fair amount of psychedelic activity.
Short and Sweet is a little misleading for newer users, as they see her 16% THC and 1% CBD and think that she’s right up their alley. In some cases, she might be, but even more experienced smokers might find themselves slightly immobilized by this bud. Her flower tends to be lime green with brown pistils, and her super hard exterior is completely covered with shiny white trichomes. Both flavors and aromas are incredibly bold with a spicy overtone that could be cough-inducing for some. Make sure to enjoy this strain in a well-ventilated area as she can get rather intense.
Reports of this bud’s effects are far and few between, leading many to believe that she either hasn’t been on the market for long or won’t continue to be - or both. What is known, however, is that Short and Sweet will likely make your high just that, something that’s incredibly enjoyable but also fairly quick as you could end up falling asleep. Her sativa side generally imparts a sensation of extreme euphoria that puts everything right in your world, but along with this happiness can come hallucinations if you aren’t mindful of your tolerance. It’s advised that you proceed with caution and plan for sleep just in case.
Home cultivators tend to rave about the ease in which they can grow Short and Sweet, as it seems as if she was practically designed for novices. While she isn’t sensitive by any stretch of the word, breeders do note that she should be planted in larger pots right off the bat to reduce the stress of transferring her as she grows. After 7 to 9 weeks of indoor growth, you should be able to yield a pretty decently sized harvest. It’s recommended that you have plenty of ventilation as well unless you want to get inundated by her aroma.
Perhaps she was named after her high or instead her availability on the cannabis market, but wherever her moniker stems from, Short and Sweet should most certainly be on your bucket list. Newer users might want to wait until the weekend to take advantage of all this strain has to offer while seasoned smokers could make her a part of their regular late afternoon or early evening routine.
