This rather unique sativa-dominant cannabis plant (60% sativa/10% indica/30% ruderalis) is a cross from ruderalis, conferring some rare but neat properties. The buds are fluffy yet dense, and take on a round, pointy-tipped shape.
The aroma from Royal Dwarf resembles honey and jet fuel, and when smoked it tastes slightly spicy and skunky, with that sweet honey bite still present.
This strain will bring on the munchies, and as it gets the eyes half-lidded, it expands into a warm, tingly body high. Royal Dwarf may work well for managing pain, muscle spasms, and cramps, but it truly excels in warding off stress, depression, and in some cases, insomnia. It can be smoked at any time of the day, but may be best saved for evening use.
Potential side effects from Royal Dwarf include headaches, cottonmouth, and red eyes.
For growers, because of Royal Dwarf’s ruderalis genetics, it grows short, stout, and incredibly fast: flowering only takes a mere 6 to 7 weeks.
