Snow Lotus is an Indica hybrid created by prolific breeders Bodhi Seeds. Crossed from the super resinous Afgooey and potent Blockhead, it confers a mobile, mellow high. Cannabis lab Analytical 360 has measured this strain’s THC content at 25%.
Snow Lotus has typically small, clustered buds. The brown-green leaves have an icy coating of trichomes, a product of the strain’s Afghan lineage. Flowers have an earthy funk and an ammonia sting that intensifies when buds are broken up or ground. Not a particularly discreet strain, it emits a fuel odor when burned. Despite these diesel-like qualities, Snow Lotus’ smoke is very smooth. On exhale, the taste is floral and sharp, almost hoppy.
The high from Snow Lotus comes on quickly and users report being surprised by the sudden intoxication. An initial focus in the head blunts anxious or racing minds. A mild body buzz comes in to give the strain a well-rounded high, with little couchlock. Although it’s high in THC, fans of Snow Lotus also say that the high has a lower propensity for paranoia. The overall energizing sensation makes this an attractive option for daytime use.
Snow Lotus has low, branchy, Indica-type plants. With landrace genetics from Hawaii, Afghanistan, and Nepal, it is adapted to outdoor growth in a variety of climates. It grows easily indoors and flowers within nine to ten weeks. Outdoor harvests happen around October. Although limited testimony is available from growers, we know that its parent strains both have typically high yields.
With big, strong scent and flavor and high-quality resin, Snow Lotus has been used to breed other tasty hybrids like Super Snow Lotus and White Lotus. Its heavy trichome production is useful for hash and other concentrates.
