Let’s be honest – it’s hard to find cannabis that’s flavored in such a way to truly blow your mind. Like a fine wine, it’s really in the subtleties, and even then you’d have to be a connoisseur to fully grasp each individual flavor note independently of another. We say all of this to tell you that there is such a thing as a knock your socks off, sativa-dominant hybrid that doesn’t require you to be a full-fledged expert to taste all the wonders this strain has to offer. Red Dragon, a truly exotic experience by Barney’s Farm in Holland, is a cross between a landrace Kush from the Himalayan mountain range of Afghanistan and Utopia Haze from Brazil.
Though the THC generally falls around 20%, this strain has recorded lows of 15% and extreme peaks at 22%. This makes Red Dragon a consistently strong and energetic bud with a powerful palate that’s sure to intrigue. The nugs of this plant are reflective of the name: forest green and bright red with rich red hairs covered in visible resin. This sweet coating gives off a delicious fruity scent accented by earthiness and salty notes. The flavors are an uncanny blend of guava and tree fruit with an incomparable, robust sweetness.
This particular high is truly a feeling to be experienced at least once. It starts in your head and neck with tingles rushing from the top of your head down to your toes. These pleasing sensations are accompanied by a full body relaxation and a surprisingly upbeat and energetic vibe. You’ll definitely feel that giggly ‘stoned’ feeling, but find that your mind is in full work mode. Because of this, it may get overwhelming for some users and isn’t recommended for novice or new users in high doses. Though most describe this strain as near heavenly, some find that it causes dizziness and paranoia. One of the more prominent side effects is the munchies, so be sure to have your favorite snacks on hand.
