The Snowball strain has fluffy, over-large popcorn puffs for nugs and a flavor profile that exudes pungency. With a taste of fuel and creamy earth, and citrus on the exhale, Snowball is not for the faint of heart (or mind). Its THC levels soar into the low 30s, making it a surefire way to get a brain freeze for any but the most experienced users.
Ethos Genetics created Snowball from The White and Chem 4 OG S1, creating something that screams OG phenotypes, both in its distinctive, pungent smells and Indica-dominance (70/30). With Chemdawg and San Francisco Valley OG Kush in its lineage (just on the Chem side), Snowball is sure to be one heck of a hybrid. Its buds grow in dense configurations under thick cloaks of snowy trichomes. Its flowers show as a mellow, light lavender under the snow.
Growers of all skill levels love Snowball, which can handle outside and inside growing conditions. Indoor growers especially enjoy the dense growing configuration and high yield, as the Snowball strain grows up to three feet in size and becomes thick and dense, almost like Amnesia Haze plants. Prepare for an early September harvest if you plan to grow Snowballs indoors.
GROWERS TIP: Snowball has trouble resisting plant diseases and growths of mold. In the last phases of its vegetation, growers need to pay extra attention to its condition. This includes providing ample ventilation and light to ensure that their yield is as large and healthy as it should be.
The Snowball strain has a uniquely potent flavor that can knock even the savviest users back into their couch. It smells and tastes of potent chemical fumes, with a creamy texture, an overtone of fuel, and an aftertaste of sour citrus. If a creamy exhale of diesel and fruit sounds off-putting, you may need to let someone else take Snowball for a spin.
However, if you can hack it, this strain, which has an average THC level of a whopping 28%, has many potential medicinal effects. Your mind launches into a state of blissful peace on this strain, mellowing out into a feeling of unmoving calm. You may even fall asleep. This makes Snowball a great remedy for depression and insomnia, chronic fatigue, and more. A stubborn muscle cramp or spasm can be released using a strategic Snowball strike, so long as you can handle the flavor. And remember to only throw Snowballs when they’re most useful – at night, after a long week of stressful work.
