A mainstay of the Colorado cannabis market, Space Candy is a fairly even hybrid. When grown right, the flowers bear a light green hue, and the petals hold tons of orange pistils. Its buds exude a deliciously sweet-and-sour berry scent, and when smoked it leaves an aftertaste of burnt apple.
Lab results place its potency at 18-22% THC, making it a cannabis plant of higher than average strength.
As one would expect from a strain with a good balance of both sativa and indica, the high generated by Space Candy straddles the best of both worlds. On the indica side, it’s soothing and induces relaxation. On the sativa side, it triggers a wave of euphoria and keeps the mind alert just enough to keep it from slipping into couch-lock. This strain may help with depression, daily stress, or minor pain. It’s also a good choice for a social smoke with friends.
Cottonmouth is the most commonly reported side effect from Space Candy. High doses may cause some anxiety, too.
