Apricot Candy feminized seeds combines Paradise Seeds heritage genetics with those of a modern day legend. From the Paradise side the mighty (and multi award winning) Dutch Dragon, with South African and Dutch genes at its Sativa core. The other component comes from Thin Mint, a potent member of the Cookies family, which is responsible for its colourful terpene profile. The result is a plant that has stability and uniformity in its foundations, with the kind of extras which bring the maximum wow factor for the grower and consumer.
The Sativa in Apricot Candy adds to the stretch and this detail should be noted by those with limited height in the grow room. However, the Indica comes through in its sideways growth and also in its chubby swollen buds. Outdoors, these plants grow like trees. In a Mediterranean climate, the warmth and sun will fuel tremendous growth upwards and outwards. In the north plants remain shorter.
As flowering progresses the foliage takes on dramatic shades of vibrant reds, violets and blues, bringing some excellent eye candy to admire during the growing stage. Where this strain differs from many Cali varieties is the frosting supplied by the extra resin production of this plant.
Apricot Candy is a flavour bundle and you'll love its unique taste and silky smoothness. The terpene profile is dominated by caryophyllene which gives its funky flavour added kick! In the grow room there are hints of apple, fresh figs and apricots, like a fresh baked fruit pie. On the palate that sense of sweetness prevails with added notes of vanilla. Silky is the adjective that best describes the supreme smoothness of the taste.
The effect of Apricot Candy cannabis arrives almost instantaneously with an immediate rush of energy. The +20% THC content should come as a warning to the inexperienced, but the connoisseur will appreciate the enhanced Sativa ascent – strong but clear – which lasts for half an hour or so before settling into a more relaxed state of body and mind.
This one is not a medical strain for inexperienced cannabis users who could find the potency too much to handle. However, the predominance of caryophyllene found in its terpene profile is associated with anti-inflammatory effects, making this a valuable strain to try out with responsible dosaging.
