The THC levels of Berkeley reach incredible heights of 24-28% on average. Its high is typical of a sativa strain, elevating cerebral activity, increasing creativity, boosting energy, causing music and art to become seemingly more pleasurable, and invoking deep-thoughts. Many artists of all kinds have taken to enjoying this strain, taking advantage of the creative effects it generates. Some have used it to elevate mood on stressful days, or to relieve headaches and rid of fatigue. This strain can be used throughout the day so long as the consumer knows their dosage level.

Negative side-effects include dry mouth and eyes, but this strain’s high THC levels will cause many consumers – novice and veteran alike – to feel anxiety or paranoia if improperly consumed.
