The cannabis strain Papaya is an indica, producing a scent that’s similar to its name. Its sweet and tropical, with flavors that are similar but have undertones of pepper and spice. Its buds are fluffy, blade-shaped, and vivid green.
Papaya was first bred by Nirvana Seeds, who wanted to create their own fruity strain. They crossed Citral #13 with Ice #2 and Papaya was born.
The THC level of this strain is known to average between 20-25%, making it quite potent. Its high is known to induce a heavy calm, making it great for anyone experiencing the jitters, hyperactivity, or problems focusing. It can help induce munchies, relieve migraines, and alleviates cramps. Papaya is a strong indica, relaxing the body from head to toe and relieving the mind of negativity.
Ill side-effects include dizziness, paranoia, and headache when consumed improperly. Dry mouth and eyes are to be expected.
Growers can be happy to find that Papaya is generally small when cultivated, making it good to grow indoors in slightly smaller spaces. However, it can take anywhere from nine to eleven weeks to fully flower.
