About this Sativa Strain

Burmese is a sativa cannabis plant that's pure and quite unique. It's quite popular, and it also carries the kind of heritage that everyone ends up falling in love with. The strain might possess a teasing name, but it's so much more than that. The name "Burmese" refers to its country of origin. Yes, no matter what you're thinking, it's true: This plant does indeed come from Myanmar (what many of us still call Burma). That being said, it makes a lot of sense that the herbs are meant to take us to a fragmented, divided nation through the use of the mind. The appearance of Burmese buds is as striking as its effects. These medium-sized nugs boast a dense structure, with vibrant green hues that catch the eye. Interspersed with hints of orange pistils and a generous coating of trichomes, the buds present a visually appealing and inviting look, signaling the quality and potency that lie within.

The complex blend of Burmese aroma is very alluring. It has a predominant scent of earthy spiciness and herbs, but when the subtle aroma of citrus is revealed it refreshes the consumer. The taste is smooth but vivid, a mix of sweetness and spicy, a taste of Burmese fruit and the exotic spice combined, accompanied by a strong earthy flavor.

Known for its energetic nature, Burmese meets the demands of a wake-and-bake or daytime dosage. It is revered for its ability to provide a cerebral jolt of energy and clarity, which is perfect for all kinds of individuals, particularly creative Types. Outrageous levels of euphoria are reported but so too is the sense of an escalated mental focus you would expect with a good white, jointed, smoked type at high levels. Locals often buy this strain as a top-notch day-starter, for its invigorating effects are a great way to start the morning, leaving you feeling upbeat and ready to seize the day.

The ancestry of this strain indicates that it could flourish in regions with a warm, tropical climate that resemble its native habitat. Its flavor and aroma hint at a wide variety of terpene content with possibly some inclusion of myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene that make up its earthy, spicy, and citrusy notes. The flowering periods of this strain would be typically in line with other strains of its type, probably from the middle of fall to the early days of winter.
