Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: UBC Chemo offers rich flavors of coffee and freshly upturned earth and provides and intense yet deeply relaxing effect. Beware of severe and sometimes insatiable munchies.
As you might guess, UBC Chemo is a highly medicinal strain that is ideal for increasing the appetite patients undergoing chemotherapy tend to experience. While the exact genetics are not specified, this indica-dominant variety can and will knock you down and keep you there for an hour or two. These buds tend to be some of the more colorful ones around, with a deep-green, almost blue color with pistils on each bud ranging from light pink, to fire orange with a grayish-white layering of trichromes.
Unlike most indicas, you’ll only want to vegetate these ladies for no more than 2 weeks, due to the fact that they’re going to stretch more than double their height upon flowering, which should be around 8 - 9 weeks long, with most of the stretching occurring during the initial 3 weeks of budding. The original Chemo variety was government developed in the 1980’s and this is a revamped version of that, with a modern era potency. Don’t be fooled into thinking that this strain is all body high however, as an equally powerful head high will occur when you medicate with UBC Chemo.
For obvious reasons, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding this weed in a dispensary, especially in California and Colorado, where it is most common and tends to range in price from $45 to $55 for eighths.
