About Strawberry Milkshake
Although it’s the least desirable milkshake flavor behind chocolate and vanilla, Strawberry Milkshake is one tasty variety of cannabis. This strain inherits its bold flavor from Strawberry Soda and its one-two punch of sativa and indica effects from White Fire Alien OG. What results is a pungent bud with a little something for everyone. Its THC content ranges from 15% to 20%.
Strawberry Milkshake’s flowers are on the smaller side, adhering in tight, pebbly clusters. The structure of these buds leans more sativa than indica, with piecey leaves that twist loosely away from one another, rather than curling densely inward. The leaves themselves are a pale sage green and are offset by several curly orange pistils. Finally, a high volume of dewy, translucent trichomes dot all visible surfaces of Strawberry Milkshake’s buds, making them hard to break up by hand.
When properly cured, these flowers give off a distinctly fruity tang. Specific strawberry notes become more apparent on a second inspection. Grinding up the buds, meanwhile, gives off a sweet and sour funk. When it is combusted, Strawberry Milkshake burns with a smooth and very palatable smoke. This smoke has a delicious sweet berry flavor on the exhale.

The user may feel their eyelids and limbs weighed down; attempting any kind of physical exertion may make them feel as if they’re wading through peanut butter. As such, Strawberry Milkshake at this stage is more likely to have its consumers plopped down on the couch than taking on a long to-do list. While mental faculties still persist during this body high, they may be somewhat less sharp and take on more of a rambling, daydreaming quality.
