Strains Of The Rainbow: Cannabis In Living Color
Cannabis has a rich, colorful history – and in 2016, the actual plant, as well, has a wider color palette than ever before. Forget Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain, Roy G. Biv or whatever other acronym you learned as a kid to help you remember the colors of the rainbow. Now, there’s a strain in every hue: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Here’s our rundown of the spectrum.
Red Haze is a powerful sativa with a very cerebral, light-headed, long-lasting high. Use strictly as a daytime strain: effects can be similar to drinking a cup of coffee.
Agent Orange is a balanced hybrid combining smooth Orange Velvet with killer-strength Jack the Ripper: buds flecked with purple and deep maroon visually offset with olfactory notes of fresh-cut orange. Uplifting and motivating effects make Agent Orange a superlative mood enhancer.
Lemon Haze is redolent of fresh-peeled lemon slices, with a sharp taste of citrus. The buds are greenish-yellow with amber hairs on the trichomes: THC content has been measured at 15-20% with a CBD of 0.38%.
