Snowcap has a mysterious history, but this happy sativa-dominant hybrid is perfect for a social gathering. It's giggly, creative, and relaxed.

The origins of Snowcap are mysterious. The most common version of this bud is thought to be a Californian mixture of Humboldt Snow and some sort of Haze. However, there are other versions of this strain (Snocap) that may have different yet equally mysterious genetics.

All in all, Snowcap is thought to be a quality sativa-dominant hybrid. This strain has developed a reputation for its cooling lemon menthol aroma. The samples you'll find in a dispensary also tend to be quite potent. On average, the THC content in Snowcap ranges from a low 14% to a high 21%.

Snowcap is known to provide an energizing high that promotes mental alertness. Finding an indica-dominant variety is possible, but overall Snowcap fans report only a slight body high from this strain. A great choice for artistic types, this strain can boost your creative side and put you in a happy, sociable mood.

Many with mental health conditions love Snowcap. It can produce a focused experience, which may be helpful to those with ADD/ADHD. Anxiety, depression, and stress-related condtions also tend to do well with Snowcap.

As a head-centered strain, many who experience tension headaches and migraines appreciate the pain relieving and anti-inflammatory qualities of this hybrid.
