Red Dragon

A taste of Red Dragon is like inhaling vaporized guava. The tropical incense aroma is the perfect complement to an upbeat yet deeply relaxing hybrid experience.

Red Dragon is a Barney's Farm hybrid that is making its way across the West. This silly flower is sativa-dominant up front, but a quick mental high is tailed by a lasting indica body experience. As Red Dragon's effects begin to wind down, expect a deep, physical relaxation to settle into muscles and limbs.

This strain has some historical roots. A mix between a Brazilian sativa and a pure indica Afghani strain, Red Dragon provides a wholeheartedly satisfying experience all around. Recreational consumers will appreciate the happy, bubbly, and giggly nature of this bud.

While the hybrid effects of Red Dragon are delightful, the stand-apart quality of this strain is its aroma. Red Dragon smells and tastes like tropical guava. Sweet fruit hits the nose first with this one, followed by a slight musky, spiciness that adds depth to the pallet.

Medical consumers often gravitate to Red Dragon for inflammatory conditions, migraines, and pain. Those who experience mood swings, anxiety, or are struck down by depression also appreciate the upbeat relaxation this strain provides.

Red Dragon has moderately high THC levels, often reaching 20%.
