The Mazar strain mixes its psychoactive compounds with Skunk #1’s Indica-style cannabinoids and terpenes, providing the LSD strain with its blatantly psychedelic buzz. Delivering an exceptionally soothing high that’s directly attributable to her complex profile, the LSD strain test results indicate the strain has 17.70% in total THC and 0.10% of CBD. Stoney and flavorful, the dominant terpenes discovered in this batch of LSD were alpha-Pinene (0.67%), Caryophyllene (0.61%), and Humulene (0.52%).
Appearance: While each bud is an individual work of art, the LSD strain tends to grow in a rather distinct pattern. Like Yertle the Turtle and his nine-turtle stack, the LSD flower piles its calyxes and pistils in dense clusters of green, yellow and orange from stem to top. Regardless of your cultivation situation, indoors or out, LSD tends to remain relatively squat throughout its vegetation cycle. Potentially displaying one of six phenotypes during cultivation, this strain hits full maturation when cultivated indoors within 65 days of switching the light cycles from veg to flower.
Consistency: Tacky, thick and intense, its overall composition is nothing less than beautiful. Masked in shimmering trichomes and laced with beneficial cannabinoids, this strain is best broken apart for consumption with a grinder or scissors for hand-rolling a joint. As for bong hits, just a pinch will do.
Scent: Like a pepper-fortified skunk on a spraying rampage, LSD blasts its tropically infused soil-like aroma on any who touch it. For those adventurous souls who insist on traveling with a strain like this, be sure to utilize one of those “no scent,” carbon filter bags. After all, there’s no need to make things weirder than necessary when wandering about the country.
Taste: While the curing process and nutrients used during cultivation will help determine the richness and depth of its flavor profile, LSD’s savory taste tends to gravitate toward an earthly pallet. Providing a combination of sweet peppered musk crossed with a hint of nuttiness, LSD smacks of an earth-centric skunk flavor.
Effect: Well, it’s considerably less than hallucinogenic, but significantly stronger than the average strain, LSD provides a powerful Indica-dominant high. Great for ending the day, this strain pairs well with Italian cuisine and a nice glass of red wine.
Strain Background: A psychedelic crossbreeding of Mazar-I-Sharif and Skunk #1, this vibrant variant of an Indica hybrid was first bred and cultivated by the skill growers at Barney’s Farm. Purportedly given its apropos nomenclature due to her psychotropic effects, LSD has an old school lineage that reaches back to the birthplace of the Silk Road and Afghanistan.
