Seeking a calming strain for a rainy day? The sweet-scented Lavender is known for its mood boosting and relaxing qualities. This purple strain provides a happy head high and substantial relief from body pain and muscle tension. Those seeking relief from chronic stress may enjoy micro-dosing this potent and flavorful flower.

Strain details

Like the more common flower, the Lavender cannabis strain offers consumers a calming and sedative experience. Bred by Soma Seeds, this strain’s lineage spans the globe. Genetics from Afghani, Hawaiian, South Asian, and Skunk cultivars all contribute to the complex chemical nature of this bud.

While the name may sound innocent, Lavender can pack a psychoactive punch. Classified as an indica, this flower features between 20 and 27 percent THC when grown with expert care. While novice consumers may be able to get away with micro-dosing this strain, Lavender is recommended for those with some cannabis experience.

True to the name, the Lavender strain features a delightful floral aroma. It’s not uncommon for this strain to feature a dusky sweet lavender scent with herbal undertones and slight hints of spice. This strain would be great to pair with flavors like vanilla, Earl Gray tea, citrus, and chai. The Lavender strain produces beautiful purple coloration that can seem almost black at times.

The Lavender strain is perfect for times when you’re hoping to lie low and chill out. This flower can produce a fairly powerful sedation, making it easy to unwind, relax, and catch up on some sleep. Lavender loosens up tense muscles and provides a very calming and comfortable heavy body experience.

Relaxation is one of the most commonly reported effects of this strain. This fact is not surprising, considering that it can produce high levels of a particular terpene called linalool. Terpenes are the aroma molecules that give plants their unique scents. Linalool is most abundant in lavender and it is thought to have anti-anxiety and anticonvulsant properties. Topical lotions and balms made from Lavender may also be useful for burns.

Considered an evening time bud, the Lavender strain is a solid choice to use before a dessert or a late dinner. The high levels of THC in this flower can stimulate appetite, so be prepared for some growing in your stomach. In high doses, consumers report dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety with this bud.

This stress-busting flower can lift mood and promote feelings of happiness and euphoria, which can be particularly helpful when the going gets tough.

Medical cannabis patients often pick up Lavender for chronic pain management. The body-numbing effects of this herb are thought to be helpful for those with extreme muscle tension and fatigue from physical stress.

Those who struggle with insomnia may also appreciate this deep purple flower. The sedative effects of lavender make it easy to fall into a deep and perhaps dreamless sleep.
