God’s Gift

God’s Gift is a popular indica-dominant hybrid cannabis strain (cultivar), with 90% Cannabis indica and 10% Cannabis sativa genetics. It is made by crossing parent strains Granddaddy Purple and OG Kush, two highly potent and popular strains. Its relaxing and sedative effects suggest God’s Gift helps manage anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.

God’s Gift has dreamy and blissful effects. It has earthy, berry, citrus, chestnut, hash flavors, pine, grape, and spicy scents. These aromas and flavors make God’s Gift attractive and pleasing for users.

The God’s Gift strain is believed to have been created in 1995, but it began gaining popularity in California dispensaries in 2005. BC Bud Depot and Scorpion Crew are the breeders who are commonly associated with God’s Gift.

Today, God’s Gift is a popular strain in Canada and on the West Coast of the United States, especially in Nevada, California, and northwestern states such as Washington and Oregon. It won Best Indica at the 2015 Bio Cannabis Cup in Spain.

God’s Gift marijuana has dense buds with lots of white trichomes due to the high THC content. The flowers are deep purple, the pistils are bright orange, and the sugar leaves that grow around the flowers are violet, green, and/or gray.

Anxiety, Panic Disorders

CBD and low doses of THC can reduce stress and anxiety via interaction with serotonin receptors.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
Depression

THC and CBD can modulate serotonin transmission, leading to cannabis’ anti-depressant properties.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

People with PTSD have more CB1 receptors in areas of the brain associated with fear and anxiety. Targeting CB1 receptors with plant cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) can help relieve some anxiety associated with PTSD. THC may also aid sleep and reduce the occurrence of nightmares.

Organ Systems

  • Mental / Emotional
Bipolar Disorder/Manic Depression

CBD may help with psychosis, but God’s Gift does not contain too much CBD. Low doses of THC may be helpful during more depressive episodes of bipolar disorder but should ideally be avoided during more manic phases. CBD-rich varieties may be better during this phase.

Organ Systems

  • Mental / Emotional
Insomnia

THC can increase the production of the sleep neurotransmitter adenosine.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
  • Mental / Emotional
Headache & Migraine

Cannabis’ ability to modulate serotonin transmission can help relieve the intensity and frequency of headaches in some cases.

Organ Systems

  • Brain & Nervous System
Arthritis

THC, CBD, and beta-caryophyllene have anti-inflammatory effects that can help reduce joint pain and stiffness.

Organ Systems

  • Muscular
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

A combination of THC and CBD can reduce neuropathic pain associated with MS.

The humidity should be kept between 30% and 40%. This is important because God’s Gift can be susceptible to bud rot if there is excessive moisture in the air.
