This strain is easily adaptable to any grow conditions, although the plant clearly favors growing outdoors as it is known to produce more than a kilo in outdoor grows. The plant itself only grows to about 3 meters in height, but produces dense, enormous buds which are covered in sticky resin and loaded with trichome coverage.
Easy to grow indoors or out and produces a large quantity of flower, these traits make it a favorite for growers everywhere.
This powerful strain tests out between 15-20% THC, with CBD content reaching as high 5%. With such a significant amount of CBD, the cerebral effects of the THC are focused, clear, and can be motivating as well.
With a high CBD content, Channel + is an excellent choice for a multitude of ailments and conditions. Patients suffering from mental disorders such as depression, anxiety or PTSD may find this strain is extremely calming and relaxing. Chronic pain, inflammation, and neuropathic pain have also seen positive results from Channel +. In addition, the end effect brings on a mild sedation which can help with sleep disorders.
While this strain does provide a heavy cerebral effect from its moderate THC level, the CBD helps mute any negative effects like paranoia or anxiousness which is why many chronic anxiety patients prefer this strain. Providing a clear-headed, uplifting cerebral effect users may choose Channel + as their go-to for daytime medicating. Uplifting, even giggly, Channel + doesn’t provide any fogginess or haziness thanks to its sativa heritage. However, after time the buzz relaxes into a warm, relaxing body effect which is well suited for pain and insomnia.
Naturally, users can expect the typical side effects from this strain including dry mouth and dry eyes. The THC content can increase appetite and increase heart rate shortly after onset, but effects should drift into a calming effect soon thereafter.
