The Real McCoy
About The Real McCoy
If you’ve never tried strains from the Netherlands, you’re sure in for a treat, and The Real McCoy would be a great bud to start with. Bred by The Flying Dutchmen, this beauty is a cross between Hawaiian and Skunk #1. While her flavors may be an acquired taste, her effects are well worth it, offering relaxation without any sense of heaviness.
THC levels here may seem rather low with an average of 13%, but it’s this bud’s 1% CBD that often takes the cake. Her nugs are very compact and dense with a minty green color that’s contrasted by amber pistils and white trichomes that resemble fine grains of sugar. Hints of skunk are obviously apparent throughout both her flavors and aromas, however this strong note is accompanied by tart citrus and a sweet candy-like appeal that works to balance things out.
Some might question their ability to enjoy The Real McCoy all day long, as her effects can be somewhat sedative, but it ultimately depends on your tolerance and the activities you have planned. Your high will begin with a huge cerebral boost that lifts your mood and infuses you with just a touch of energy. Creativity shines here, and before long your mental state will be matched with a set of bodily tingles that soothe you to the core. Some may simply feel relaxed without being locked to the couch while others could still hold onto a bit of pep in their step.
It’s a given that any strain with measurable CBD will be great for medical use, and The Real McCoy certainly doesn’t disappoint. Her strong bodily effects tend to help more with physical ailments rather than mental woes, making it an ideal bud for the treatment of headaches, eye pressure, cramps, and more. Although it’s not highly advertised as such, we’d bet that this strain would also be just fine for stress and depression, as relaxation is one of her top priorities.
Individuals who are interested in starting their own home garden should certainly consider The Real McCoy as one of their first plants, as it’s easy to grow and requires minimal effort in order to result in a high yield. Highly resistant to molds and mildews, this beauty will thrive in warm and sunny climates, making her a great option for outdoor growth. After 8 to 9 weeks, you’ll be rewarded with a decently large yield.
Whether relaxing on the couch is your go-to or socialization is important, The Real McCoy can sort of morph into whatever is most important to you. Take a few tokes before a night out for a stress-free time with friends or stay in and let the day fade away while you eat snacks and binge some Netflix. Assuming you can get over her pungent attributes, this bud will be a great daily smoke for just about anyone.
