The avid literature nerds in the Cannabis community might notice that Soma Seeds share their name with the fictional pleasure drug ‘Soma’ as seen in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Whether a coincidence or intended association, Soma Seeds are notorious for their own blend of pleasure-inducing products and Somango is but just one of them. An indica-dominant strain resulting from the crossing of Big Skunk Korean, Super Skunk, and the popular Jack Herer, Somango will go down very well with experienced smokers owing to its high potency and is sure to bring about an array of different effects which will make you feel high as a kite.
Best grown in temperate and humid conditions, Somango plants are moderately difficult to grow as they require constant attention such as regular trims and inspections. However, once you master the required horticultural processes, you will find that growing becomes a lot easier, and you can expect to see the plant flower around the 8-9 week mark, yielding anywhere between 300-600g/m2.
Somango buds are dense and light green in color and have orange strands surrounding their exterior merged with tiny white hairs. Flavorwise the bud is kind of tropical and is slightly reminiscent of mango (hence the name), whilst others have also reported vanilla and spice. Concerning its smell, mango also comes to mind along with an earthy aroma as seen in many other strains, so these buds are as pleasant to smell as they are to taste.
Analytical 360 tested the Somango on 03-07-2014 with the next results:
The effects will start to impact you gradually but once they do, new smokers may get caught off guard owing to its potency. So after feeling a tingly sensation in your arms and legs, you will notice a surge in mental stimulation which will boost your thought processes, but nothing too overwhelming as the bodily high will balance things out. So especially with experienced smokers, expect to feel uplifted and happy, focused and perceptive.
Like with its parent strain Jack Herer, its main medicinal use is in its fast-acting pain relief for those suffering from chronic pains. Its sedating effects on both mind and body can also help those dealing with stress as it will help put them into a state of calm, and its uplifting qualities can also help combat mild depression and anxiety.
Because the effects of this strain are quite powerful, new smokers can at times experience some paranoia and anxiety. However, for more experienced smokers the side-effects generally consist of a dry mouth and red eyes. If you are new to smoking cannabis, then this might not be the best strain to start off with.
