About this Hybrid Strain
Supernova is an old, classic strain, and you may know it by a better name: “Chronic.” Immortalized by West Coast rappers like Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Supernova’s indica-dominant buds (75% indica/25% sativa) are famous for being caked in sparkling trichomes, which helped to make this such a popular strain across generations. The nugs should smell like a medley of tropical fruits and flowers, and the smoke, if grown properly, will taste like inhaling a fruit salad.
Surprisingly, Supernova is quite the espresso-like shot to the brain for an indica. It can encourage sociability, stimulate creativity, and otherwise get a smoker going in the morning. Its high primarily affects the head, relieving stress, low moods, and insomnia, though it may also help with controlling pain and nausea, too.
The most common side effects from Supernova are cottonmouth and red eyes.
This strain comes from Amsterdam, where it’s most likely to be found. It’s exact genetics are unknown, but lab tests place its potency as high as 25% THC, making it a fairly strong cannabis plant.
