Snowland (sometimes spelled SnowLAnd) is an indica-leaning hybrid that delivers large flowers and, for growers, very high yields. Created by well-known breeders DNA Genetics and descended from Snowcap and indica favorite LA Confidential, this bud has a potent high composed of well-balanced effects. Snowland’s THC content has been measured at levels from 15% to 27%.
Flowers of Snowland are typically medium in size and have an elongated, roughly cylindrical shape. Their internal structure hews more indica, with small leaves that curl tightly inward to comprise a solidly-packed core. These leaves themselves are a vivid shade of lime green and are dotted with translucent white trichomes and curly orange pistils, making them even more colorful and eye-catching.
An initial whiff of Snowland’s flowers may detect nothing more than the fresh scent of pine. A closer inspection, however, might pick up on some fruity, lemon-tinged accents lurking underneath as well. Grinding up Snowland’s impressive flowers gives off more of a deep, hashy odor with overtones of musk incense -- this aromatic profile may be passed on from the Afghani in the strain’s genetics. When burnt, Snowland gives off a thick and sour smoke that can cause some watery eyes. On the exhale, this heavy smoke has a marked citrus flavor.
The high from Snowland tends to hit users slowly, such that those who don’t feel any effects after about 10 minutes are advised to keep waiting. Eventually, this strain exerts a palpable headrush that comes with physical effects like twitching temples and cognitive ones like a sudden feeling of mindrace. Smokers’ thoughts may seem to move more quickly or might have a new intensity, bouncing around in free association and bringing to light unanticipated connections between topics. Some users may also undergo changes in their sensory perception, with certain sights and sounds being subject to slight distortions; skewed depth perspective is one such commonly reported result. Consumers can alternately put this mental state towards productivity on demanding tasks or may choose to simply enjoy Snowland’s reality-altering buzz.
After an hour or so, Snowland’s comedown hits, revealing physical effects that are more relaxing than stimulating. Newly subdued smokers may feel tense limbs and chests unwind as trickles of sedation spread from the neck throughout the entire body. Those who are active or away from home may find themselves wanting to take shelter, while those who are already in comfortable surroundings may make a rush for the couch. At this point, Snowland is a great way to kick back with passive pursuits like snacking or watching TV. If dosage is increased, Snowland’s soothing vibes can progress into immobilization, making users feel as if they’re melting into the furniture. Because of its slow descent into drowsiness, Snowland is recommended for nighttime use.
Snowland’s diverse recreational effects have similarly broad medical applications. For one, the cerebral mood that comes with the strain’s onset can be a good way for those with attention deficit disorders to maintain focus. Additionally, its steady glow of euphoria can dull some of the symptoms associated with stress and depression. Physical benefits range from relief from aches and pains to a marked enhancement of appetite (otherwise known as the munchies). Because it comes with some possibility of disorienting and obsessive thinking, Snowland should be consumed with caution by patients who are new to THC or who are prone to paranoia or panic.
Although DNA Genetics has made seeds of Snowland available for sale online, supplies of the strain do not appear to be regularly stocked. Those intent on growing the strain at home have the option of obtain clones, or clippings from mature, healthy plants. These can be cultivated indoors or out, with outdoor success hinging on a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Plants follow an indica template, with a short, bushy stature and a leafy composition that may call for regular pruning. Snowland flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and is ready for harvest in late September when grown outdoors. Patients gardeners can expect substantial yields of between 46 to 60 grams (1.6 to 2.1 ounces) of flower per square foot of greenery.
A visually and aromatically impressive strain, Snowland has the hardy breeding stock to back up its consumer appeal. With high THC levels, this bud is sure to impressive long-time cannabis consumers and newbies alike.
This has become one of my favorite strains. It’s potent & flavorful & has a relaxing feeling in the throat & lungs when smoked. I smoke regularly so I usually need to smoke 2-3 bowls to get exceptionally stoned, but 1-2 bowls of this seems to do the trick.
