Vortex is a Sativa marijuana strain that can be notoriously hard to grow. Vortex can be used to help treat symptoms of ADD/ADHD, leaving marijuana consumers feeling happy and focused.

Vortex is a highly psychoactive Sativa strain, which THC content sometimes reaching as high as 20%. Medical marijuana patients and casual consumers alike cherish the mental focus and energetic buzz this strain offers, as well as its pleasant lemon and mango flavors.

 

Vortex Experience


While not the highest THC content on the market, Vortex packs a notable cerebral high that has given it quite the reputation in the marijuana community. Bringing home Best Sativa award from the 2010 High Times Cannabis Cup, as well as ranking in the Top 10 for 2007, this strain isn’t short of accolades either.

A cross between Apollo 13 and Space Queen, this strain can count such heavy hitters as Romulan, Cinderella 99, Genius and Princess 75 amongst its ancestors.

The potent head buzz kicks in almost immediately after consumption, with marijuana consumers enjoying a boost of energy and focus. Eventually, the Indica heritage of this cannabis strain kicks in with consumers feeling relaxed and lightly sedated.

 

Traits of Vortex and Vortex Seeds


While there are many phenotypes of this strain, marijuana connoisseurs will note the presence of Jack Herer looming large. That famous weed passes down sweet lemon aromas and flavors through the Apollo 13 and Space Queen strains. Aromas of tropical fruit also sneak into the mix, with some alluring notes of mango pull cannabis enthusiasts in.

Seeds are available from TGA Subcool Seeds, which produce some “incredibly sticky freaks of nature” according to the breeder. The seeds produce some really hairy nugs, with orange pistils almost overpowering the deep green of the leaves.

While very popular with recreational consumers, this strain has a number of therapeutic applications that will make it appealing to medical marijuana patients.

  • This medical cannabis can help to alleviate stress, anxiety and depression

  • Patients who experience ADD/ADHD maybe find Vortex useful for increasing focus
