LSD the hallucinogen is known to induce anxiety-riddled bad trips. Thankfully, LSD the marijuana strain delivers a psychedelic effect without the negative edge. It’s a near-even balance of sativa and indica (55:45 sativa/indica ratio). What sets this strain apart is its astronomically high THC levels, which top out at 24%. There are also high levels of CBD in this strain; CBD is used to treat seizures and other conditions. As its name suggests, LSD spurs a happy, strongly psychedelic experience focused on the head. At the same time, the indica genes provide a calming effect ideal for chronic body aches. LSD leaves quite an impression. Inexperienced users often get stuck in a mental rut, while other users find the strain promotes creativity and social interaction. It has a pungent earthy flavor and smell, with an underlying sweet taste. The high is strongly euphoric and upbeat, ideal for daytime activities as long as the high doesn’t overpower. LSD is great at relieving anxiety and depression, as well as PTSD, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and GI distress. It’s most popular in Colorado and on the West Coast, a bit harder to find elsewhere. It’s one of the most potent strains on the market, and its THC levels have drawn something of a following.
Cheese Quake is an indica-dominant hybrid with a sativa/indica ratio of 40:60. Together with top THC levels of nearly 20%, this makes for a strong body stone with couch-lock effects. Mental euphoria is also powerful, making this a great way to relieve stress and low mood at the end of a busy day. CBD levels are relatively high (1.5%), but not high enough to recommend this as a treatment for seizure disorders or other conditions that respond to CBD treatment. Instead, it’s better used to treat depression, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain. The high is deeply relaxing and best saved for evening use, as it can make it hard to get things done. Cheese Quake is a crossbreed of Cheese, a hybrid, and Querkle, an indica. Not surprisingly, this strain tastes and smells distinctly of cheese, with a sweet aroma and a tea-like flavor. Dry mouth, as usual, is the most likely negative effect, though dry eyes are also common. Headaches, paranoia, and dizziness are possible but rare. Cheese Quake can be found in numerous places, but it’s most popular in the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, and Michigan.
