About Thai Girl
Thai Girl is a sativa-dominant hybrid dating back to the 1970s. It was bred as a cross between Tres Dawg and a variety of landrace Thai Stick selected by a breeder who went by the name Gold King. This bud offers a crowd-pleasing tropical flavor profile and upbeat, stimulating effects. A true daytime smoke. Thai Girl’s THC content has been measured at between 14% and 25%.
Thai Girl is quite a looker, with exceptionally large flowers that hold a tapered, almost pyramid-like form. Despite their descent from Thai Stick, which produces long, spindly flowers with loose leaves, these buds maintain a characteristically indica structure, dense and compact at their core. The leaves are a vivid yellowish-green and are wound through with curly brown and orange hairs (which are actually pistils, botanical structures meant to catch pollen for reproduction). A dusting of cloudy, translucent white trichomes caps off these buds and makes them very sticky to the touch.
When properly cured, Thai Girl’s flowers burst with a mellow, tropical scent that has distinct notes of orange. There’s also a sour-sweet funk underneath, redolent of skunk or of fermented organic matter. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open these buds gives off an earthy musk that’s usually associated with parent strain Thai. Thai Girl burns with a very sweet and smooth smoke when combusted; this pleasant smoke has a citrus and herbal flavor on the exhale.
Like any good sativa, Thai Girl strikes the smoker almost immediately after it has been inhaled. Initial signs of the strain’s action are marked by an increased blood pressure to the face, resulting in some tingle around the temples or along the jaw. Soon after these physical sensations have sunk in, users may notice that their thoughts have a newly focused quality and may seem more intense or dynamic than they ordinarily would. Ideas may flow in free association, making this bud a great way to facilitate open-ended creative brainstorming. This cerebral mindset may also be a good way to accomplish complicated, work-related tasks or to simply get through mundane chores like doing the dishes with a little more excitement. Thai Girl isn’t known to exert powerful physical effects and may only contribute to couchlock for smokers who are already predisposed to drowsiness. At any rate, its mental acuity isn’t likely to fade even as the high wears on or as dosage is increased. With continuous focus and energy, some smokers my enjoy pursuits like exercising or gaming while under Thai Girl’s influence. The strain can also be a good social lubricant in party settings, where it can contribute to chattiness and a giddy camaraderie, even among new acquaintances. Because it is more likely to motivate its consumers than to slow them down, Thai Girl is recommended for enjoyment during the day rather than closer to bedtime; it may even be a good way to start the morning as a wake-and-bake strain.
Thai Girl’s versatile high gives it some application for medical cannabis patients as well. Its clear-eyed, cerebral onset can aid in focus for those with attention deficit disorders. The strain’s mood-lifting properties, meanwhile, can be a good temporary antidote to mild to moderate stress and depression. Anti-inflammatory properties allow the bud to treat common irritations like headaches and cramps, while some appetite stimulation can be good for those struggling to put on weight due to disease or chemotherapy. Because its early effects can lead to a disorienting feeling of “mindrace,” Thai Girl is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of this energetic strain are not available for sale online. Prospective home growers must obtain clippings of mature plants that can be fostered as genetically identical “clones.” Thai Girl can be grown indoors or outdoors in hot, humid climates; however, the hardy landrace genes in this bud’s background may help it resist adverse growing conditions like temperature variation. Thai Girl has short and bushy plants for a sativa, as well as an unusually short flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks.
Thai Girl is a quintessential daytime smoke, especially in pleasant weather. Enjoy it during an outdoor excursion like a camping trip or a day at the beach.
