A Soma Seeds creation, Lavender — sometimes called Lavender Kush — is an indica-dominant hybrid strain (cultivar) bred from four parents: Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, Afghani, and Hawaiian. Lavender produces dense buds with a moderate THC content, typically between 14% and 20%. It may not be the most potent strain, but it’s nonetheless reported to alleviate chronic pain while providing strong cerebral effects.
On the nose, Lavender flower aptly smells like lavender flowers, and some describe its aroma as a sensually spicy smell. The strain’s most ardent fans claim Lavender’s leaves sport one of the darkest purple colorations among cannabis plants (a byproduct of the presence of a group of flavonoids called anthocyanins). However, several strains exhibit similar purple hues.
Celebrated for a relatively short flowering cycle of eight to 10 weeks, Lavender is an easy strain (cultivar) for beginners to grow due to its resistance to various environmental conditions. But because it can grow up to 8 feet tall, cultivators must be prepared to accommodate the plant with the space it needs to thrive.
