Get ready for a treat from the heavens. God’s Gift features a delicious grapey flavor and a tingly, drowsy high. A few puffs of this lovely bud is like inhaling waves of relaxation. While experienced consumers may get an enjoyable yet strong experience from God’s Gift, this strain will likely put novices right to sleep. These sedative effects are popular amongst medical cannabis patients with pain and insomnia.
The original breeders behind God’s Gift are a bit a mystery, but it’s lucky that this strain somehow made it into the hands of growers. California-born, this herb entered the scene in 1995.
Not only is God’s Gift a potent psychoactive, but the presence of terpenes like myrcene and linalool amp up the drowsy, heavy bodied effects of this strain. Myrcene helps THC enter the brain faster, enhancing the potency of the strain. Linalool is an anxiety reliever, helping worries and daily stresses melt away.
The sedative qualities of this strain will really kick in as the experience winds down. Up front, however, the God’s Gift strain is deeply calming and blissful. It tends to promote a happy, euphoric attitude and you may even feel a little goofy.
Those hoping to get things done may want to opt for a more energizing strain since God’s Gift tends to promote a fuzzy-headed feeling that can make it difficult to concentrate.
While the high levels of THC in this strain may trigger a case of the munchies, an increase in appetite is not one of the most noticeable traits in the God’s Gift experience. Still, puffing on this happy flower before dinner is an excellent way to build up some excitement before a big meal.
For the most part, this sleepy flower is best saved for an evening or nighttime indulgence.
The God’s Gift strain is an ultra tasty cross between Granddaddy Purple and OG Kush. The former is one of the most popular indicas on the market and has been a favorite for years. The latter is one of the most famous cannabis strains in the word. The combination has led to a 90 percent indica hybrid cross that will have you sinking into your couch.
This flower tends to get quite potent, often featuring between 18 and 22 percent THC. Though, levels of the psychoactive are known to reach the high twenties. For this reason, God’s Gift is not recommended for beginners. In fact, even veteran cannabis consumers may find themselves a little slowed down by this intoxicating bud.
The aroma of this strain strongly takes after its Granddaddy Purple heritage. Gorgeous purple-tinged leaves are coated with a sparkling layer of dense white crystals, making this a strain cannabis enthusiasts will be dying to show off. A sweet grape flavor often reaches the nose, but the scent lies on a bed of an earthy hash scent. God’s Gift has been known to produce high levels of the terpenes (aroma molecules) myrcene and linalool. Myrcene provides a musky base, while linalool offers a floral, lavender fragrance.
Apart from a powerful sleep aid, God’s Gift is often popular for pain management. The effects may be comfortable, pleasant, and upbeat, but this strain doesn’t skimp as a painkiller. Those hoping to avoid nighttime pain might be particularly attracted to this bud. Though, God’s Gift is also a great daytime selection if you plan on hanging around at home.
As with many cannabis strains, this bud is also popular among patients with chronic stress and depression. Those hoping to take advantage of the more giggly and uplifting side of this strain may want to stick to microdosing.
In lower doses, the God’s Gift strain is less sedative and more silly. If microdosing isn’t your thing, low-temperature vaporization will also do the trick.
Patients with severe medical conditions tend to like this strain.
