About this Hybrid Strain

With the recent changes in marijuana legislation, the popularity of smaller autoflowering cannabis plants has been on the rise. These plants can be grown in relatively small indoor grow rooms and are overall faster and simpler to grow. Red Poison is one of those strains.

Brought to you by Sweet Seeds out of Spain, this strain is an indica-dominant, ruderalis cut. Ruderalis is a type of cannabis plant that is shorter in stature with higher CBD and lower THC levels. Most importantly, it is autoflowering. This means that the flowering happens automatically over time, not as a result of exposure to sunlight. This can help keep things simple for novice cultivators. Red Poison was made by taking the offspring of an unknown Ruderalis plant crossed with Hindu Kush and mating it with the ever popular and award winning Indica-dominant, Green Poison.

Red Poison buds are full and fluffy, and can be spade, heart, and peanut shaped. They have a generous array of bright-orange pistils scattered throughout the buds. The leaves are coiled and can be of a shamrock-green color or entirely purple. This happens when the anthocyanins, or flavonoid that gives rise to the red/purple pigment, becomes activated in plants exposed to lower temperatures and to soil with a lower PH.

Red Poison has a pleasant odor of cedar and skunk with hints of citrus fruits. Smoking or vaping this strain amplifies the sweet citrus flavor reminiscent of sugary candy.

As users have reported, Red Poison induces a euphoric high. It reportedly boosts mood, making it a great stress-reliever. Uplifted spirits and a reduction in anxiety are frequently described from Red Poison. This indica leaning herb reportedly has soothing and physical relieving effects on the muscles and joints. The moderate THC content will help from overwhelming users with low tolerances, or those who are prone to panic attacks. This analgesic effect can also help in relaxing the smooth muscles of the intestines, and thus helps to stimulate appetite.
