The high CBD cannabis strain Pennywise is an indica that has four differing phenotypes. Its name derives from the Stephen King novel, “It,” referencing the killer clown, however, there’s nothing scary about this strain. Depending on phenotype, its buds can be either round or finger-shaped but all have purple hues. Its scent and flavor are of coffee and spice, with woody and earthy undertones. Some note a hint of citrus or bubblegum.
