Frankenstein, also called “Dr. Frankenstein” is an indica cannabis strain that was named because of its sedating and hunger-inducing affects. Its harvest-ready buds are shaped like pebbles, bright green, quite dense and covered with lots of orange pistils. Its scent and flavor are reminiscent of mangoes and citrus.
Parent strains and genetics remain a mystery, much like in the popular novel. However, the breeders choose to keep its parent strains in the dark. Some believe one parent is the hybrid OG Kush
Frankenstein’s THC levels average between 18%-22% and were once considered extremely potent – which may have changed due to the surge in breeding new genetics that have become increasingly potent. However, its high is known to sedate the consumer and induce hunger, so expect munchies and have snacks handy. The mind will relax and fall into a lazy daze that’s often of introspection. The body will experience a tingling euphoria that dissipates all aches and pains.
Negative effects are rare when consuming Frankenstein, but note most strains may cause anxiety or paranoia when too much has been consumed.
