Cannabis lovers looking for a strong-armed sativa should look no further than Chernobyl. This lemon-lime delight is not only loaded with THC, but it provides a happy, uplifting, and energetic high. A great choice for a wake n’ bake, Chernobyl is thoughtful and euphoric. Most popular among those in need of significant stress relief, the effects of Chernobyl last up to three hours. Pick up this flower when you’re in need of powerful medicine.

Strain details

Chernobyl is a powerhouse hybrid strain that was first brought into the world by TGA Genetics. This buzzy bud is a cross between three contemporary strains, Trainwreck, Trinity, and Jack the Ripper. Trainwreck is a happy hybrid known for its thick trichome crystal coating. Trinity is a rare yet spirited sativa with a positive attitude. Jack the Ripper is another sativa and an offspring of the famous strain, Jack Herer.

With such rock star genetics, it’s no surprise that the Chernobyl strain boasts such high THC levels. In some tests, this flower has produced nearly 30 percent of the psychoactive. Though, you’re more likely to find samples that rest in the low-twenties. Classified as a sativa, this flower provides a zippy and cerebral experience that is best suited for daytime consumption.

The stimulating nature of this strain is noticeable upon the first whiff. Chernobyl features a strong citrus aroma, with plenty of sharp hits of lemon and lime. This citrus quality can give it a bit of a sour fragrance and taste. Though, many may find that a bit of sweetness dances across the tongue when inhaling this strain out of a clean glass piece. TGA describes the flavor of Chernobyl as “lime Slurpee.” Taking a dry pull of this flower prior to lighting up is recommended.

The Chernobyl strain is recommended for those with some cannabis experience. In all seriousness, this flower is strong. Perhaps even considered a one-and-done kind of bud, Chernobyl provides a powerful euphoria without paranoia. Of course, this strain can also leave you coughing and dazed due to its significant lung-expanding capabilities.

If a novice happens to find themselves in front of some Chernobyl, microdosing will be the most enjoyable way to consume this uplifting bud. In high doses, this strain can cause some anxiety and dizziness, which perhaps makes it best suited for an afternoon when you don’t have much on your schedule.

Energizing and high-spirited, this strain has a cerebral quality that makes it a fun choice for creative projects. However, since this strain is so powerful, it’s not uncommon to find yourself happy, lifted, and a little introverted.

While this s a great strain to share with cannabis-savvy friends and loved ones, solo smokers may also enjoy the thoughtful attitude this strain provides. Expect a giant smile on your face after a little of this spunky lemon bud.

Chernobyl would be a great replacement for your morning cup of coffee, so long as this strain is consumed in low doses. In low doses, experienced cannabis consumers may find that this flower promotes focus and happiness, helping you clear any mental cobwebs clinging on after sleep. Yet, those who plan on consuming higher doses of this strain may want to save it for a night out on the town or a silly weekend with friends.

Medical cannabis consumers often pick up this spirited sativa for relief from mental health ailments like anxiety, depression, and chronic stress. Those with ADD/ADHD may find that this flower promotes concentration and helps you get things done. At least, so long as it is dosed appropriately.

Chernobyl is also a popular choice for those seeking relief from headaches and mild to moderate aches and pains. Those hoping to relieve daytime nausea may also enjoy this flower.
