Of course, any cannabis plant could be considered a “lifesaver,” but this one gets its name from the candy, not a generalized description. An indica-dominant hybrid, the chunky, purple-tinged buds smell like pink bubblegum and red grapes.
The flavor carried through the smoke resembles a mishmash or fruits and berries, much like a fruit punch.
Users often say that Lifesaver provides relief from chronic pain, muscle tension, cramps, headaches, depression, and stress. The effects hit hard and are long-lasting, and even smaller doses may induce couch-lock. For those struggling with insomnia or restlessness, this strain may help with those, too. Social users who enjoy the half-lidded effects of heavy indicas will discover instant relaxation in Lifesaver, including mood elevation and euphoria.
Common side effects from Lifesaver include dry mouth and red eyes.
Cultivators should know that although Lifesaver matures quickly (~8 weeks flowering), it produces medium- to low-yields, so it’s not ideal for commercial grows.

Lifesaver was bred specifically for medical use, and it’s a cross between BOG Bubble and Subcool JCB.
