G-13 is a strain with a story. Perhaps bred by government workers at the University of Mississippi in the 1960s, this indica-dominant hybrid has been couch-locking cannabis lovers ever since.

There's some lore around this strain. Rumor has it that G-13 is a product of a super plant produced by the U.S. government. Back in the early 1960s, government scientists supposedly bred some of the strongest cannabis in the world together over 13 generations. The end product was indica-dominant G-13.

A clone of this powerhouse then somehow managed to escape to the underground cannabis scene in the 70s and 80s. This strain then became more popular when it was showcased in the 1990s hit film , American Beauty. Is any of this true? Who knows. But, it's a definite fact that this strain packs a punch. It's unlikely that modern-day G-13 strains are original cuts.

However, consumers still love this indica for the potent body high and cerebral, euphoric effects. You might feel a quick surge in creativity before the slow-onset physical effects kick in. Medical consumers like G-13 for treating chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, inflammation, and gastrointestinal distress.

Stress, pain, and headaches are also left by the wayside after G-13. Though, the indica genetics of this herb make it best for evening and nighttime use. G-13's relaxing effects are accompanied by a strong, earthy sweet aroma.
