Apollo 13 is an acclaimed Hybrid from legendary breeders Brothers Grimm. This strain is coveted by its fans thanks to its rarity — with only 500 seeds produced by the original stock, marijuana enthusiasts are left to hunt down cuttings. This Sativa-dominant strain is worth the effort, however, with its near euphoric effects and sweet, peppery flavors.
Apollo 13 is more than just an arbitrary space reference — this strain offers cannabis enthusiasts a potent, almost psychedelic head high. That spacey feeling won’t cause consumers to lose focus, however, instead offering a burst of energy and creativity.
Thanks to these energizing effects, this is a perfect daytime strain, while marijuana consumers can also expect to feel a sense of euphoria, making this a great strain for those dealing with depression.
This strain has a distinctly herbal, almost tea-like flavor that can be slightly rough on the inhale. Exhaling brings out Apollo 13’s skunky aftertaste that, while not unpleasant, can be a little harsh for cannabis newbies. The aroma is particularly pungent, with some marijuana connoisseurs noting sour and citrus tones amongst the earthy and peppery smells.
While this strain is incredibly rare, those lucky enough to get their hands on these large, sticky buds will be thrilled. Deep orange pistils and a heavy coating of crystals give Apollo 13 some serious bag appeal.
Medical marijuana patients covet this strain for more than just its rarity, however, as it also has a range of medicinal applications.
