Strain of the Week: Permafrost




This winter has been a rough one for much of the U.S. Even some regions in southern California received snow due to shockingly low temperatures and incoming storms. But in most of the U.S., permafrost is not something you need to worry about. This term refers to ground that has been frozen for at least two years at 32 degrees F or colder. Typically, this state of ground can only be found in the polar regions of the globe (cue an educational nature channel theme song). Strains of this name contain the essence of the earth, and a ton of medical benefits waiting beneath the surface.

Heritage is always an important thing to consider, and Permafrost comes from a cross between Trainwreck and White Widow. Trainwreck, a sativa-dominant hybrid with an earthy scent, invokes feelings of happiness and euphoria. White Widow on the other hand is a classic strain that contains indica-dominant ancestry. Together, both of these parent strains produce earthy scents with either zesty or floral undertones.

As a result, Permafrost is a down-to-earth strain that doesn’t keep consumers down—instead, it lifts them up. The scent is reminiscent of nature, inviting relaxing images of hiking or picnicking outdoors with its sweet, piney and almost spicy smell. Even its exterior is vibrant and frosty, with an array of orange hairs jutting through in a wild manner.

When it comes down to it, Permafrost is designed to get consumers out of a funk. It’s highly useful in treating mental conditions such as depression and anxiety, as well as a variety of other medical conditions. Reviewers felt uplifted after partaking in this natural little nugget, which followed with feelings of pure bliss. Even if consumers aim to simply gain some temporary courage in an upcoming social situation, such as a small gathering, a party, or even a date, this strain could be very useful.
