Taking its name from the palace belonging to Kublai Khan, the fifth Great Kahn of the Mongol Empire and grandson of Genghis Kahn, Xanadu is a mostly Sativa strain from Dutchgrown Seeds. Starting with X18, an Indica that hails from Pakistan but made its way to California and breeder Tom Hill, the breeders crossed that female with a male DTC99. DTC99 is a mostly Sativa strain from the Brothers Grimm that is derived from mixing Durban Thai Highflyer and Cinderella 99.
The frosted green buds of this strain are infused with explosive energy that can send the spirit and the mind soaring. Xanadu's fruity flavors may help ease chronic stress and anxiety, as well as depression. It may also help regulate other mood disorders, headaches and migraines.
Inheriting many traits from its parents, this strain can grow tall and produce an average sized yield. The strain prefers to be grown indoors and needs between eight and nine weeks to finish flowering. Some have reportedly had success growing this strain outdoors. Growers recommend topping these plants multiple times, beginning with the sixth internode. It can do well in a Sea of Green. Unfortunately, Xanadu was a limited release and not many seeds were available.
