Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: King Congo has an effect that is rarely seen in other strains. It provides a totally cerebral high that causes many users to be creative, due to its psychedelic tendencies. The effect can be overpowering for inexperienced users, but for most people it is a great daytime smoke with almost no body high.These buds are medium size to large size and have incredibly long, pink pistils and a moderate layering of trichomes. They smell of a mix of carrots, earth, citrus and spice with flavors of carrots and citrus, making for quite a unique mix up. The breeder took a Ciskei male and back crossed it to a Ciskei x Congo Pointe Noire female to create a 100% sativa strain that has become renowned in most areas of Africa, Asia and even Europe. It's not likely you'll find it in an American dispensary, but stranger things have been known to happen. If you wish to have this strain in your garden it would be best to order some seeds from the breeder, which are only available in non-feminized form. Since these ladies don't tend to get monstrously tall, it's okay to allow them to vegetate around a month. This will also help improve the yield from moderate to heavy, in some cases. They will flower for 10 to 11 weeks and are a very versatile strain, being able to be cultivated in either a greenhouse, indoors or outdoors. They also will thrive in soil but will do well in hydro or aeroponics. They tend to grow with a single, large cola, making them a good Sea of Green candidate.
