About this Hybrid Strain

Citral, an indica-dominant hybrid, stands out for its citrus-packed aroma and robust effects that skillfully blend relaxation with cerebral stimulation.

The color palette ranges from forest-green to occasional hints of purple, adding to their allure. Adorning these buds are deep orange pistils and a delicate layer of white trichomes, which not only contribute to their aesthetic appeal but also hint at the rich, flavorful experience they offer.
