“When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.” Cliche as it may seem, this Marley quote couldn’t be more perfect for this strain. Originally known as, and likely still mostly called, Chronic, Supernova is a highly potent, indica-dominant strain out of Amsterdam. This high flows from an intense body experience to an elevated clarity that will have you pondering the bigger picture.
THC values in this strain are astronomically high with consistent measurements hitting 25%. For indica lovers, you’ve hit the jackpot. These sweet, earthy nugs give off an aroma of musk and sugar and taste of sweet and savory caramel. The leaves are bright green and accompany the minty buds with accents of orange hairs and a thick layering of resinous crystals.
Aching for a classic munchie high that has you introspective and relaxed while still completely engaged and happy? Sounds like a lot, but Supernova delivers. First, it hits you with a body high, soothing your muscles and sinking you into a meditative state. As the high progresses you’ll get a sense of euphoria that is accompanied by an open and creative mind. This sometimes leads to deep thinking and can have you feeling introspective yet alert.
This strain is great for the treatment of eating disorders or a general lack of appetite as it is a strong stimulant and gives users a sudden increase in hunger. If you suffer from stress, depression, or other mood disorders, this strain is great as it elevates one’s disposition while fully relaxing your body. Insomnia, chronic pain, and headaches benefit greatly from the sedative properties in this strain as well. Because CBD levels are unmeasured, it is not recommended for seizures, spasms, or any other ailments that are reliant on that compound for treatment. The only widely reported negative side effects are dry mouth and eyes.
Supernova is an easy to grow, quick flowering plant that has very little, if any, inherent weaknesses in itself or its parentage. This makes it an ideal plant for beginners and growers of any level. Though it is not immune to mold or pests, it is unlikely that you will find your plants affected by those issues. Flowering in 7 to 8 weeks, this strain gives an above average yield that keeps it a fan favorite.
Something classic like the Chronic needs no introduction in spite of the name change. It’s been rapped about, sang about, written about, fawned over - it’s a long-running favorite for a reason. Get nostalgic with your favorite snacks and a good flick and dig into Supernova.
