Tiramisu is a dessert that evokes every layer of Italy, from the layer of sweet tartness in the mascarpone cheese and the acidic bite of the cocoa powder and espresso to the full-bodied breathy flavor of the ladyfingers soaked in delicious liquors. The Tiramisu strain evokes this multi-layered masterpiece of the dessert in its own flavor, which is sweet, skunky, pungent, and creamy like a vanilla ladyfinger or a fresh cookie. The THC levels soar and the harsh Indica dominance (90/10) makes it a strain that requires passion to grow or use. But it rewards you with flavor!
The cannabis maestros at The Rare in California created Tiramisu from Animal Cookies and an unnamed parent made from OG Kush Breath and Bay Exclusive OG. The result is a strain of fluffy, mint-green nugs that are super big and covered in unique, deep yellow pistils. The trichomes are cloudy and white and shimmer in a layer of sticky resin. The plant has a good yield and an Indica-heavy growing structure, tall and lean, due to its lineage.
GROWING TIPS: The plant is hardy, strong, and perfect for those who top their strains to promote more lateral growth. The strain is easy to clone and fills your whole growing space with harvestable plants, ready in about 9 or 10 weeks.
The strain’s flavor mimics the dessert in a burst of creamy nuttiness, with hints of vanilla and chocolate (though without the tinge of coffee flavor present in the dessert). This version of tiramisu is great for getting to sleep at night (though a case could be made for the dessert too!). It provides a mood-lifting feeling of happy mental energy, destroying your focus and stress, and promoting euphoric feelings. Tiramisu gives you a classic stoner’s high, complete with intense sedation. If you can get the strain around its high THC average of 27%, you can expect to be lulled by a creamy vanilla temptress called Tiramisu to deep and peaceful sleep.
This makes the strain great for those who suffer from muscle spasms, high spasticity, and cramps. Related issues caused by this muscle tightness, from stress to body aches and pains, can be treated with a little bit of dessert-flavored smoke. Pain, depression, and insomnia are also no match for the strain.
Some people wish they could focus more – the ideal Tiramisu users are the opposite. They want to cloud over their focus with a pungent skunk and a sweet flavor. The result is euphoric, antispasmodic, and confectionery.
