What Is The Zed Strain?
Strain Description: *can feel like a moderate potency being a pure Indica but it’s super stoney
Zed strain is the silent ninja that has a high that creeps up on you and brings a very calm and relaxed feeling of effects. Great at reducing any kind of pains either physical or mental, long-lasting people have said to feel the effects for up to 3 hours.
Ideally, this strain is used for treating people suffering from Stress, Anxiety, Chronic Pain, or loss of appetite. Tastes within these terpenes are a sweet earthy with a hint of fresh pine. The scent is slightly sweet with a floral spice and on top of that, it’s enhanced by the strong earthy smell.
Zed Strain Genetics
Have you never tried a pure Indica? This one is the epitome of it.
Find out what a pure indica feels like from all the way down the genetic line to land race – they were all indica’s. A fun strain that chills you out, melts stress and is a great way to start or end the day. Perfect for the beach, social gatherings. A pure indica that feels like one. It’s a cross between Northern Lights (pure indica from land race) and hash plant (a mix of itself, Northern Lights and Afghani).
The amount of Indica body in its genetics speaks volumes through its parents being already-indica but the fine-tuning here becomes obvious. Why another backcrossing with Northern Lights, who knows but let’s compare the two Leafly effects graphs:
Northern Lights: relaxed-happy-sleepy-euphoric-hungry
Hash Plant: relaxed-sleepy-happy-uplifted-hungry
… creating something like relaxed-slappy-lifted-hungry. The point is: it was a good idea and they succeeded. Why not blend two things together that are so alike? They complete each other – awww.
It seems like they aimed for an exact cross that touches on everything while maintaining a purity: euphoric-uplifted vs. relaxed-happy/sleepy/hungry – all accounting to a heavier body stone and having euphoria with upliftment as background feels is the bomb. Don’t expect to be uplifted off the couch, it will make you want to stay put. The high has medium weight – a little sleepy but won’t konk you out that soon. Which makes it excellent for putting your feet up. You’ll still be able to watch the whole movie. Buds grow fairly dense but large overall.
Relaxed-happy-focused-sleepy-euphoric-uplifted-hungry is spot on. This strain takes the edge off and replaces it with a back rub and a beer. Being a pure indica, this is completely on the side of relaxation without much of a cerebral to note at all. However, a heaviness is felt after its initial creeping onset of 2+ minutes that feels sedating and because of that a wave of happiness, upliftment and euphoric thinking. All the same as being more towards a sativa lights are brighter, colours more vivid and the pleasantries of a resort are in your palms. Felt heavily in the eyes, head, and body. Slight mood lift from the other effects.
A very clean high removed of ill effects that a cerebral existing at all can have to someone who does not do well with sativa’s. This is non-thought-changing but still gives a burst of flowing ideas. For a lack of a cerebral it becomes rather focusing. Perfect for novice to just-under heavy users, however, heavier users may still want something more cerebrally euphoric like Sweet Tooth (90% indica). To anyone who knows what their pure indica’s feel like this is that slowed-down, lights are brighter, munchies, whole lotta water, bucket of ice cream to yourself… stuff. The smokeability would be better if it weren’t as highly resinous, small to medium sized bowls will be preferable over hero bowls, otherwise it burns and ashes just as a quad does.
Zed Strain Flavors
Pungency is A1, nose stuck to the bag profile grade. The first whiff is like either flowery saw-dust or dried orange peels; citrus that has been aged into barely a cheese scent that buckles deeply into a woodiness, reminiscent of its parents in the background is a hashy earthiness that carries a floral texture with spicey notes. It tastes as good as it looks in its large picture, it may look very foreign compared to the usual, sporting yellow spike-like kief, cherry red hairs, and deep bluey-black bases. It has smaller trichomes but zoomed-in they look like porcupine quills.
Suggested Medical Uses
Insomnia – smoke a bowl and go right to bed. Pain and nausea including headache & migraine. Making tough decisions – seriously, it will focus your thoughts while making everything very clear. Laughing but not by yourself, it’s not inwardly yet nudges you to be more outwardly. I would recommend this for depression and PTSD if you can stay awake and actually enjoy it, there’s not a lot of upliftment/forced happiness; the happiness from this strain is had from how relaxing it is, everything combined it does other things too. For major upliftment, I would be looking hard at Gelato or White Widow.
