Sleeping is like meditation – it’s good to rest the body but also to shut the mind down for a bit. As the name would suggest, Anesthesia is a highly sedative strain aimed at alleviating pain and sending its user off to dreamland. By crossing Afghan Skunk with Herojuana, breeder Whazzup created the Anesthesia, a Breeder’s Choice award-winning strain, as a way of keeping the Afghani Skunk genetics going for as long as possible. And aren’t you glad they did?
This indica-dominant hybrid is designed entirely to override the moderate THC levels, typically around 19%, and give you a high that is sure to knock you off your feet with very little effort on your part. The buds are dense and leafy with musky earth tones and flavors indicative of its Afghan heritage. The crystals of this flower give it a glossy shine, complimenting its intense effects and flavors.
The high, as you might expect, is fast acting and booming with sedative-like properties. As a recreational bud, you might use this at the end of a long day to ease up your woes and get you ready for bed. Anesthesia is hunger-inducing, so be sure to get creative in the kitchen while you’re still able to stand and utilize the euphoria and bliss the strain offers. The Sandman awaits and after a short run, your achy feet will relax and your body will melt into your bed or couch.
Calling a strain Anesthesia might be a dead giveaway as to what effects you can expect, but in case anyone is unsure, this bud is perfect for pain. Let it relax your muscles and ease up your cramps, chronic pain, muscle tension, and headaches. If you suffer from insomnia, this is a great plant to try out. For a lack of appetite and relief from chronic nausea, try this strain in smaller doses. Some negative side effects do include dizziness, paranoia, and cottonmouth, so novice users are recommended to proceed with caution.
Thanks to Whazzup, the seeds of this plant have boomed in popularity and can be found outside of their hometown of Boulder, CO at long last. As a result of that, growing this strain has become more accessible and therefore it’s easier to find tips and tricks. The plants grow short and wide, so if you are an indoor cultivator, pruning is a must. Because of their strong aromas, smell proof systems may be needed if discretion is necessary. Flowering time is around 9 to 10 weeks indoors with a late October harvest if grown outside. The yield is high if in the right conditions.
Lose yourself in this hard-hitting high and have one of the best night’s sleep of your life. The smooth pain relief and muscle relaxing qualities of this strain make it ideal for both recreational and medicinal users as it has a little something for everyone. So whether you are just winding down after a long day at work or are in dire need of some anesthetic, this bud might be just what you are looking for.
