The term “zeitgeist” refers to something that’s a spirit of the time, and if you’re talking about the cannabis industry, this ultra-mysterious strain with the same name certainly fits the bill. Zeitgeist is crafted by I&I Genetics in Colorado and is a cross between Purple Pantera and Sour Amnesia. If you find her at a local dispensary, why not live a little and take a chance on this unknown bud?
Many facets of Zeitgeist are shrouded in secrecy, and while her THC potency has never fully been released, it seems as if she’s rather strong. Nugs are equally kept under the radar with zero images found online and very few dispensaries across the nation even carrying her. If you enjoy bold strains, her mixture of flavors and aromas will certainly appeal to you, as lemon, grape, gas, and pine create something that’s savory and strong.
While she may not have much data on paper, Zeitgeist has been rumored to be a strain that will completely knock you out if you aren’t careful. Initially, her high can be quite cerebral and bring on feelings of euphoria and a bit of a “spaced out” mentality, but that’s just the beginning. Once her physical effects kick in, you may as well cancel the rest of your plans for the night. Most note that this strain is sedating in the best way possible, allowing you to forget about the day you just had, and maybe even forgetting your name if you smoke enough.
It’s no surprise that a strain this powerful can be just as great for medical use as it is for recreational purposes. Zeitgeist tends to help those who struggle with getting a good night of sleep, as her relaxing qualities can affect even the most seasoned user with ease. Mental woes including depression and anxiety also tend to fall by the wayside, offering you a bit of a reprieve from your typical concerns.
As you’ve probably guessed, growing Zeitgeist yourself likely isn’t an option. I&I Genetics maintains an incredibly low profile, and it’s difficult enough finding this strain at your local dispensary compared to locating seeds or clones. Should the cannabis gods shine upon you and allow you to encounter a home cultivation opportunity, consult with an experienced grower first.
If you have a list of strains that you’d like to try but probably never will, Zeitgeist should be included. No one wants to ever give up hope, but as she’s so incredibly mysterious, it would take a bit of luck to be able to find and purchase her. If you do, save this powerful strain for the days when you need her help the most.
