Although the exact combination of terpenes is not available for Avalon, it is available for the parent strains. Afghani has myrcene, limonene, and pinene terpenes.

DJ Short Blueberry, the other Avalon parent strain, also has limonene and caryophyllene. Caryophyllene is the only terpene that can act directly on the endocannabinoid system as a cannabinoid, although other terpenes can have cannabinoid-like (cannabimimetic) effects.

  • Euphoria
  • Focus
  • Relaxing
  • Sedating
  • Sleepiness

The following adverse effects have also been reported:

  • Dry Eyes
  • Dry Mouth

Avalon has been shown to cause arousal and focus in users. It also causes euphoria, with around half of users feeling uplifted and relaxed. It’s known for having a hefty sedative effect on the mind and the body, often leading to sleep. It has a strong body buzz as well. However, as with any variety of cannabis, the effects can differ from person to person.

Medical Applications

Avalon has a high THC percentage, making it useful from a therapeutic perspective. These applications come from the high level of THC and terpene and flavonoid interactions. In particular, the terpenes have some potential therapeutic uses, as outlined above. In particular, the terpenes caryophyllene and limonene have the most therapeutic benefit, specifically in treating chronic pain and inflammation. In addition, Avalon is a very hypnotic strain, which often leads to the user becoming sleepy. This is an excellent medical use, as people managing pain often struggle to fall asleep, and a lack of sleep has an extensive range of adverse effects.

growing strains

Avalon is not a difficult strain to grow; it can be grown indoors and outdoors. It can also be grown without fertilizer, requiring few to no added nutrients to flourish. However, getting a high yield from this plant, at 13.3 ounces per square yard (450 grams per square meter), requires a lot of close attention.


This strain grows between 90-150 cm. Outside, it can grow up to 6 feet tall. As an indica strain, it’s typically a short and stout plant, growing wider than taller.

Humidity and Temperature

Avalon was explicitly bred to be resistant to mold and mildew, and this often plagues home grows because of the inability to control humidity. Although it’s still best to control humidity, Avalon can be grown in various conditions even without humidity control.


Avalon takes around 45 days to flower fully. This helps make it a great commercial strain due to quick turnover, and the high yield and ease of growth add to commercial viability. Unfortunately, the strain is unavailable in seed form, as Next Generation Seed Company has discontinued it.
