About this Hybrid Strain

The hybrid strain dubbed Crescendo gets its name from the smooth high it is reported to produce, which eventually leads to a strong peak that lulls the user into an intense euphoric state, as some reviewers have explained. They’ve shared that its effects have produced a calm in both their body and mind while leading to slight sedation that’s good for an afternoon nap.

The scent and taste have been noted as being of diesel with notes of citrus that linger on the palette after smoking or vaping. The Crescendo strain’s cured buds have various shades of violet and blues noticeable within them, along with a thick coating of trichomes that lighten its tones.

THC levels can fluctuate with this strain so be sure to check its levels before making a serving for yourself. Some batches have been tested reaching levels above 25%. The dominant terpenes found in Crescendo include caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene.
