Candyland has a fairly rare profile in that it doesn’t have any cannabinol (CBN) or cannabigerol (CBG) in it, and since it is a primarily sativa strain the buzzing elements present in most sativa buds aren’t dampened by the inclusion of indica here. That makes it the perfect social smoke, as it means that it won’t send you to sleep easily. Instead, Candyland will make you feel alert, uplifted and euphoric. It’ll get your heart going but won’t get your heart racing, which is delightful for high energy situations where you want to remain focused, like while attending a house party or watching sports with your friends. This profile also makes it spectacular for creative work. The gentle euphoria that lasts for hours without making you tired makes it perfect for bashing out the next Great American Novel or working on your podcast. Ultimately, it’s a superb Sunday morning smoke.
The THC content of this strain can be very variable, however. Although it typically has around 14 percent THC, the nature of the grow or the supplier means it can reach as high as 24 percent, which would be far too potent for a novice smoker to handle. If you’re fairly new to weed and are lucky enough to get your hands on this amazing strain, then go easy until you can figure out its potency as its effects can be too intense for new smokers.
Finally, like a kid binging on too many sweets, smoking this strain to excess can lead to horrendous dry mouth and dry eyes. Be sure to be stocked up on water while smoking this candied treat. Overall, though, this is an incredible bud. It looks spectacular, tastes amazing and gives an excellent uplifting euphoria that doesn’t send you to sleep. If you’re someone who struggles to keep their eyes open, put the sugary chocolate aside and indulge in smoking this sweet strain instead.
