Those of you reading this article obviously like to indulge in a good strain of marijuana, at least from time to time. You also know how complicated it may be to find the one you’ll like the most. No wonder, because today, there are over 100 of the most popular types of it in the world. They differ by type (sativa, indica, or hybrid), by the base species from which they were created, and by the geographical area from which they came.
The names of different types often include a section explaining their original strain, flavor, or effect. For example, there are Afghani, Afgoo, Kosher Kush, Hindu Kush, Bubba Kush, and Obama Kush as well as Lemon Haze, Purple Haze, and Strawberry Haze…
Some types have retained a large part of the original plant and are called heirloom strains, but today they are produced in small quantities and most often do not contain all the chemical compositions of the original. What is actually sold today are different types or strains that have sativa, indica, or hybrids as a base.
Although on the Internet and on the market you can find numerous so-called “types of marijuana” most of them actually refer to strains. Indica, sativa, and hybrid species are the three primary types of marijuana that differ in the appearance of the plant and the composition and amount of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
But today, we’re going to mention a special one called pluto strain. Here’s everything you should know about it.
1. Truly, an Impressive Strain
Here’s a highly potent, super skunky strain, a lot of connoisseurs find to be very impressive and satisfying. Well, no wonder, since it has been combined with some of the top exotic strains. Another factor that contributes to its impressiveness is the fact it was grown by a legend with experience growing in the undergrounds of Atlanta, Oregon, and California. The nugs are also impressive, rich with colors like orange, green, and white.
2. Rapper Weed
Being so impressive, it was first adopted by the hip-hop community, which made it known as a rapper weed. But it takes a true rapper to be able to find it, as the wider California recreational community doesn’t have access. If, however, you’re lucky enough to find some on the streets, you’re most likely to pay as much as $ 8,000 a piece! A good experience obviously costs.
3. The Smell is Wonderful
One thing everybody knows about marijuana is its rich smell, which varies from one strain to another. In the case of pluto, it will dominate the room as soon as you open the package. It will be very pleasant, though, reminding me of skunky berries, filling every inch of the room. And it’s a lasting scent. But if you want to keep it, you’ll need to make sure the package is closed properly.
4. High in THC
By now you must be wondering why is it so popular amongst rappers, why is it so hard to find, and how come it’s so expensive. The answer is in its extremely high levels of THC. A compound that gets you high, and that puts it on the higher end of the potency scale. Because of this feature, it is highly recommended that less-experienced consumers avoid it, or take certain measures of precaution.
5. It’s Great for Sleep
Marijuana is generally known for its calming effects, some strains provide better than others. Pluto, however, has the power to literally knock you off your feet, which makes it a perfect strain to go for, if you need a good night’s sleep. Some say that it even relieves depression and anxiety effects.
On the other hand, some people have experienced an entirely different effect that includes euphoria and being energized for hours. So, it is safe to conclude that effects are rather individual.
After stating all the above, a lot of you are probably wondering if it can be easily cultivated…
At one point in the text, we mentioned how this train can be a challenge for those who do not have experience in cultivating their own weed.
But, there is no greater pleasure than consuming a home-grown one. Today, there are species that are extremely demanding to grow, but fortunately, the difficulty of growing is not related to quality. There are several varieties that are easy to grow, and the quality of the flower itself is very high.
The species vary in terms of taste, potency, and color. If you are one of those who are planning to breed, it is very important to find out what growing conditions need to be ensured for a certain species. These include ambient humidity, flowering time, and whether to grow outdoors or indoors.
It is important to pay attention to other factors, such as how resistant the strain is too cold, drought, mold, or insects.
There are types that are more suitable for beginners. Auto-flowering species grow faster, from seed to flower in eight weeks. The growing time combined with ruderalis genetics is the perfect form for first-time growers.
Ruderalis, i.e. auto flowering species, begin the flowering phase independently of the light cycle – they mature over time. This is another thing that beginners should not worry about if they choose auto-flowering strains.
Whether you’re looking for something to unwind with after a long, busy day at work, something to get your sleep going, or to give your creative energy a boost, pluto is the strain for you. It also is recommended to people suffering from chronic pain and stress. Based on the growth, its THC percentage can go up to 23%, making it, as we mentioned earlier, one of the strains with the highest levels.
