While this strain may not be from outer space, the effects it produces may make you believe otherwise. Martian Mean Green has a pungent floral aroma with piney notes and undertones of skunk. Very floral and earthy in flavor, you may notice hints of spice or pepper on exhale.
A 60/40 sativa hybrid which is no stranger to winning big, Martian Mean Green has earned the following accolades:
- 1st Sativa High Times Cannabis Cup in 2005
- 3rd Coffeeshop High Times Cannabis Cup in 2006
- Strain of the Year 2006 High Times Magazine
With only 7 to 9 weeks to flowering time listed, most master growers allow this strain to finish out in 10 weeks. Grows short and bushy like an indica, but produces a moderate harvest of 3 to 6 ounces per square foot.
This performs well in the heat and thrives in colder temperatures as well. Martian Mean Green prefers an organic soil grow as opposed to aquaponics, but is easy enough to grow that even novice growers can produce quality product.
Consumers with anxiety disorders should note, this Martian Mean Green tests high in THC and low in CBD. When smoking or vaporizing, the effects are quick to onset and may actually trigger some anxiousness. While this effect will likely fade, many may find the energetic, racy effects uncomfortable until they build a tolerance
As a sativa-dominant hybrid, the effects from Martian Mean Green kick in quickly and with intensity. This strain provides a very cerebral, creative, and focused mental effect which can be perfect for daytime use or when you’re trying to get a task completed without pain. However, these are the same effects which may trigger panic attacks and paranoia in certain consumers. With its potency, users may want to ease into it.
The energetic euphoria provided by this strain can make it a favorite for concerts, art museums, or movies as it can enhance the senses and provide motivation. The effects will eventually fade to a relaxing body buzz coupled with sedation.
While Martian Mean Green may not have you seeing little green men from Mars, its strong cerebral effects may light up your creativity enough to imagine how to conjure them up for your next Sci-Fi novel. Just make sure you bring some snacks as this strain will also likely cause the munchies.
