Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: This bud smells like medicated coffee with different spices added to it and the aroma carries over to the flavor. This bud has minimal smoke expansion and produces a mellow yet cerebral high that slowly changes into a modest body high. Not an overly potent strain but it has high medicinal value.
A landrace strain, Snowcap comes in two phenotypes. The first is a mostly sativa strain that grows much more like a sativa, producing similar effects. The second, as you might have guessed, is a mostly indica strain that grows short and bushy with broad, dark-green leaves that almost look black during maturity. Breeding of this strain became popular in British Columbia as well as the Netherlands. Producing huge light-green buds, both phenotypes flower between 8 and 10 weeks, with the sativa-dominant one preferring to wait until the 65 to 70 day mark to harvest. She’s not particularly sensitive to outdoor weather, and has shown a natural resistance to pests and diseases. Most growers will be pleased with the above average yields both phenotypes produce.
A highly medicinal strain with a THC content ranging from 10% to 14% and a CBD content between 1.5% and just over 3% many patients like this strain not for the high, but rather the relief it provides. This pheno is ideal for treating insomnia, eating disorders, nausea and pain relief. The sativa phenotype is not recommended for treatment of these symptoms. Flavors of decadent spices, cocoa, coffee, mint and danky butterscotch make Snowcap arguably one of the tastiest strains available. Patients concerned about finances will be pleased to see that this strain usually goes for around $40 per eighth and rarely more than $45.
The smoke is very smooth and is mostly bland but has kind of a butterscotch/coffee/vanilla taste. In a sun bowl I have tasted fruit-loops very strongly but that was the only time. Another time, I was walking in the rain with my hood on with a partially lit joint behind my ear and with every step my hood will expand and a tiny bit of fresh smoke would fill my hood and it smelled like Ice-Cream cone.
Great sativa high, makes you feel creative and ads a shine to everything you do.
seemed a little more harsher than
others such as GDP. But its buzz last awhile.
