The pine-cone shaped buds from this cannabis plant are fairly dense with a liberal sprinkling of trichomes and pistil coverage. Medicine Man is an indica-dominant hybrid (80% indica/20% sativa) with a strong flowery scent.
The smoke produced by this strain tastes incredibly sweet and citrusy, with hints of berry.
Lab results show its cannabinoid content can reach and even exceed 23% THC, which is why it was renamed from “White Rhino” to “Medicine Man” (so beginners would know it packed quite a punch).
As a medical strain, this cultivar was bred to instill a strong couch-lock effect. The body high is lethargic and numbing, and its heady effects will cause sleepiness. It works well for headaches, migraines, arthritis, and controlling nausea, and some users report it can ease the frequency of seizures.
Cottonmouth is the most common side effect from Medicine Man, although red eyes and slight paranoia are possible, too.
