About this Hybrid Strain
A hybrid cannabis plant (50% indica/50% sativa) that consistently churns out chunky, lumpy, lime-green buds, Special K’s aroma carries a tropical citrus twist with liberal dashes of spice. Pistil production comes a little later than is average for most strains, but after harvesting, there should be a healthy coat of orange hairs across its flowers. When burned, it tastes saccharine and earthy, with hints of mesquite.
Lab tests show it can reach as high as 24% THC, making this an incredibly potent plant.
Smokers should know Special K can quickly induce couch-lock. With heavy eye lids, the mind may wander off into a borderline psychedelic experience, which is great for unwinding on a rainy day, but may get in the way of sessions requiring more focus or productivity. Although Special K may help with nausea or moderate pain, it’s best for treating cerebral issues like fatigue or low moods.
The most commonly reported side effects from Special K is irritated eyes.
The lineage behind Special K is a little foggy, but the generally accepted parentage for this strain is Slyder and Western Winds.
