About Stinky Pete
Stinky Pete is an unusually hard strain to track down information on. Some suggest that Otis Gardens created the strain when they crossbred OG Kush, Snowtracks, and Vortex. Others have found Stinky Pete to be the offspring of an ambitious crossbreeding of the ever-popular White Widow with Original Jamaican. Regardless of which set of parents are noted, the two Stinky Petes are likely the same bud and someone is confusing some parent strains somewhere in the lineage. They are likely the same bud because they are described the same by those who smoke it, despite claiming it has vastly different parents.
Although its name would suggest a pungent strain of cannabis, Stinky Pete is actually one of the sweetest-smelling strains on the market today. Users have noted that its smell is actually pleasant, unlike most strains which end up making the room smell of diesel and terps. The terpene profile in Stinky Pete has been noted as being incredibly tasty when vaped and smoked.
Stinky Pete plants typically grow short, a nod to its Indica lineage, only growing up to 5 feet tall. An easy strain to grow, most users choose this strain because its smell is discrete and not likely to rouse unwanted suspicion and attention from neighbors. Stinky Pete nuggets are often dense, tightly packed dark green/purple buds encompassed by thick, hairy orange pistils and an even thicker layer of trichomes. One of the most notable aspects of Stinky Pete is that the nugs tend to emit a smell of mint that becomes much more vibrant and overpowering as the nugs are broken apart or ground up.
Because there is so much confusion on the internet about which strain of cannabis is the true Stinky Pete, there are few to no lab tests available for the strain. Some report THC counts as high as 23%, and others as low as 10%. Regardless, Stinky Pete is popular among those who are looking to relax.
Stinky Pete is best used in the early mornings when waking up or right before bed. This is because users often feel their stress and anxiety melt away with the first hit. A relaxing, tingling sensation washes over your body and mind with every pull from your bong or hit off a joint. It is likely to make you feel not only energetic and creative, but ready to tackle your day’s worth of plans. Stinky Pete is used by many to treat anxiety/depression in addition to chronic pain and stress. Stinky Pete is also noted by some to cause the munchies, which makes it great for those that suffer from nausea and appetite loss.
