LSD is a hybrid cannabis strain.
LSD is a hallucinogenic drug that is commonly used to deliver the body into a psychedelic state or what other people call as nirvana. However, as most people would know, this type of drug is highly illegal. Moreover, it is believed to have long-term side effects to users. In the cannabis world, one strain has a near similar effect because of its potency.

As expected, LSD has flavors and aroma that is quite reminiscent of its Skunk heritage. At first, it emits an earthy flavor that typical of classic marijuana. As the buds are broken, a sweet skunk aroma quickly fills the room. As pleasant as it smells, so is its flavor with most of its scent carrying over. Upon smoking, the sweet skunk taste is distinct and accompanied by a hint of citrus.
LSD comes with up to 24% THC, an insanely high amount. Without a doubt, this is a trait inherited from its predecessors. Bred by Barney’s Farm, they used premium quality legends Mazar I Sharif and Skunk #1. These two are among the best ever in the world and has been used to develop countless other prominent hybrids.
Experienced users and those with high tolerance levels, though, should remain productive. That is until the Indica traits kick in. Once it does, it delivers a numbing body buzz that melts away tension and stress. It is also quite possible that users find themselves lost in their thoughts or may even have a hazy mind even as they drown in utter bliss.
LSD, on its name alone, sparks the curiosity of people who have never used it before. While all sorts of names were given to marijuana, picking a particularly notorious one makes one wonder just how close it is to the real thing. As alluded to earlier, it comes with an insanely high THC. Beginners will want to start off with gentler strains first before even trying this one out.
Possessing up to 1.3% CBD, it certainly can bring comfort to patients. LSD has anti-inflammatory and pain-killing properties that are effective in helping relieve physical pain. Those who are suffering from chronic pain, muscle spasms, and other physical discomfort should find relief with its use.
LSD is not just a gift for users, it is a gift for growers as well. Aside from being able to grow the plant in both indoor and outdoor environments, it is also resistant to molds and pests as well. This high yielding cannabis may also be cultivated by beginners since it is not highly sensitive and isn’t high maintenance.
