Heirloom sativa
Dr. Grinspoon is a pure heirloom sativa named after the famous cannabis activist, Dr. Lester Grinspoon. It often features 20-25% THC and produces focused and cerebral effects.

This sativa is an homage to one of the most famous cannabis activists and doctors around, Dr. Lester Grinspoon. Dr. Grinspoon is an Associate Professor Emeritus of psychiatry at Harvard.  Back in the late 1960s, Grinspoon set out to prove that cannabis was a harmful recreational drug. However, when he dove into the research on the subject, he changed his mind. There was not enough scientific evidence to support the idea that cannabis is harmful. So, Grinspoon became an activist. Since the 60s, Grinspoon has gone on to produce a wealth of research papers and has spoken out publicly in support of cannabis on countless occasions. The Dr. Grinspoon strain is just the plant to pay respects to this cannabis legend. Cerebral and clear-headed, this sativa is known to enhance focus and cultivate powerful uplifting sensations. Bred by Barney's Seeds from a pure heirloom strain, Dr. Grinspoon gives users a taste of what an unadulterated sativa is like. This strain produces very little bodily effects and can be as energizing as a strong cup of coffee. Patients with ADD/ADHD, chronic stress, chronic fatigue syndrome, and depression will appreciate the cerebral qualities of this strain. This strain is great for daytime medication and is a happy, sociable addition to a night out with friends. Dr. Grinspoon is best left to experienced growers. This plant has a very late flowering time and can be quite tricky to grow in cooler climates. It features an earthy tropical aroma, with hints of citrus and spice.

Growing Tips

If growing outdoors, this strain needs a hot or temperate climate. You'll need a full 6 months of nice, sunny weather in order to get the most from Dr. Grinspoon. This sativa tends to get nice and tall with red and green popcorn buds. For best terpene expression, opt for organic soil methods. This strain is often grown by those with a little more experience. It's long flowering time and heirloom sativa qualities make it more difficult to cultivate than your average cash crop. Be patient and expect to sink some love and care into this strain. Dr. Grinspoon does well in a greenhouse, and will need plenty of overhead space if grown indoors.
