Biskante

With a 70% sativa and 30% indica profile, the Biskante strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid grown by crossing the Melonade and Biscotti strains. Developed by Alien Labs, Biskante has a high THC content of 27%-29% and low CBD levels hovering around 1%.

Paired with its cannabinoid profile, Biskante’s limonene and beta-caryophyllene terpenes produce a biscotti sweetness with a lemony, creamy, gas aroma. Biskante’s chemical compounds synergize to deliver an intense cerebral high, euphoria, and occasional lightheadedness. Some users also report harnessing this potent strain for medical purposes, like pain relief, depression, and anxiety.

Depression

Most people describe the Biskante strain as an uplifting variety that spurs energetic euphoria and giggles. As a result, this strain may be used to treat symptoms of depression, such as sadness, fatigue, and lack of appetite. However, it is best to use low doses of Biskante if using it to manage depression.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
Loss of Appetite

THC promotes the release of the hunger-stimulating hormone ghrelin. Because Biskante has such a high THC percentage, this strain could help with lack of appetite, a symptom of conditions like depression, anxiety, and cancer treatment, like chemotherapy. Biskante’s high THC content might also help relieve nausea.

Growing

growing strains

Alien Labs reportedly grows its designer cultivars indoors but has not published specific cultivation instructions for the Biskante strain. That said, sativa-dominant hybrid cultivars like Biskante grow healthy inside or outside under the proper conditions.

Height

Unlike indica-dominant, sativa-dominant hybrid strains typically take on sativa properties, making them taller and lankier varieties with thin leaves. At full height, sativas can grow five to eighteen feet or more.

Humidity and Temperature

Each stage of a plant’s lifecycle requires different humidity and temperature conditions. For indoor setups, some experts report that seedlings and clones prefer moderate temperatures of 68-77 degrees Fahrenheit with the lights on at high humidity levels of 65-70%.

During vegetation, growers typically start to reduce humidity levels by 5% weekly while they raise temperatures to 71-82 degrees. During the flowering stage, cannabis requires about 40% air humidity in mild, temperate conditions, no higher than 75 degrees. One to two weeks before harvest, ideal humidity levels are reportedly 30-40% at temperatures of 64-75 degrees with lights on.

Flowering

The flowering stage occurs when the plant develops flowers that eventually become cannabinoid-rich buds. This stage occurs after the grower reduces the plants’ light exposure to 12 hours daily. Under these conditions, sativa-like strains produce flowers around week ten to twelve while simultaneously doubling or tripling in height. Their complete growth cycle from seed to harvest lasts about six months.
