About this Hybrid Strain
Scarlet Fire is a sativa-dominant cannabis strain, whose original cultivator remains unknown, although legend has it that the name was inspired by Grateful Dead songs "Scarlet Begonias" and "Fire on the Mountain." Although multiple Scarlet Fire's exist, this review focuses on the strain created by Envy, from crossing the soothing indica-dominant, Yeti OG, with amazing pure sativa, Durban Poison.
The Scarlet Fire buds consist of coiled, forest-green leaves, hidden under a mass of amber trichomes, which gives the buds a lime-green color. Fuzzy orange pistils can be found sparsely decorated throughout.
The odor is rich, with zesty lemon and fresh pine coming out the strongest. Combusting this strain adds a creamy vanilla flavor to the taste of lemon citrus.
Scarlet Fire is relatively strong, with THC content routinely testing between 20-25%. The major terpenes, Beta Caryophyllene and Limonene, are believed to combat stress and inflammation, with many users reporting an increase in motivation and energy, as well as a substantial decrease in chronic pain. This sedating effect on the muscles and nerves is not described as incapacitating, making Scarlet Fire receive high marks from users who need to stay moving and be productive. Scarlet Fire reportedly provides a smooth, cerebral euphoria, with many users experiencing an enhanced ability to focus, which is surprising considering its potency.
