Benefits

Born from the union of 3 delightful parent strains: Gelato, GSC and Gorilla Glue, Biscotti is an indica-dominant cultivar loved worldwide for its fabulous taste. This moderately potent hybrid, with THC levels ranging from 21 to 25% on average, delivers a versatile, blissful experience of relaxing euphoria. Alleviating both mental and physical stress, it will be a great companion to wind down at the end of a long day.

Onset

With an almost immediate onset, Biscotti quickly hits you with blissful euphoria. The head high will make you feel like you are floating on a cloud, where happiness takes over your mind and soul, and stressful worries vanish. As the experience unfolds, you can expect a tingly sensation to spread all over your body. It eventually leads to a profound relaxation, making your body so pleasantly heavy it will likely end in a couchlock.

Whilst the strain provides potent mental effects, it is not one to stimulate creativity or mental focus. Instead, it leaves you in a little spaced-out, dreamy state, where you thoroughly enjoy the present moment without a care in the world.

This euphoria inspires laughter and giggles; therefore, Biscotti will be a great strain to share with a group of close friends. You can also enjoy it on your own during tranquil weekends or evenings when you need some all-around happy, relaxing vibes.

Uses

While Biscotti was developed as a recreational strain, it can still provide many medical benefits. First and foremost, the intense feeling of calm euphoria and bliss leads to instantaneous relief in stress and anxiety conditions. With the help of uplifting limonene, Biscotti improves the mood significantly, temporarily removing the symptoms of depression and PTSD. Thanks to calming myrcene, it also can facilitate a night of good sleep for those struggling with insomnia.

Finally, with the substantial content of anti-inflammatory CBG (at 1%) and caryophyllene, the strain is excellent at relieving aches, even potent ones, in conditions like fibromyalgia, arthritis, joint pain and many others.

Side effects

The most frequently reported side effects of Biscotti consumption include the typical sensations of dry mouth and dry eyes. However, its delightful flavour makes it easy to cross your limits when smoking this strain. Higher doses have been linked to anxiety and paranoia, particularly in those susceptible to these conditions. Therefore, remember to keep your intake moderate and start with low doses.

Due to its indica-leaning nature, Biscotti should best be consumed only in the afternoon/evening.

Taste & Smell

Fruity
Earthy

Biscotti looks like a typical indica with its tiny, dense buds tightly packed together, generously sparkled with bright trichomes. However, what sets this strain apart are its outstanding fragrance and flavour.

The name Biscotti is a perfect match for a strain that truly embodies baked cookies. You will notice a nutty, almond-like sweet fragrance complemented by some herbal and earthy undertones on the first whiff. The smooth, easy smoke is a delight to your taste buds – and it will truly taste like you are savouring your favourite biscuits. The complex nutty flavour profile has gained Biscotti an extensive range of fans, as it is such a pleasurable smoke like no other.

Indica

Origins

Biscotti hails back to the warm, sunny Californian land and is a product of the famed Cookies Farm. They have proven their expertise again, bringing us the fusion of GelatoGirl Scout Cookies and Gorilla Glue. With such fabulous parents, it is no wonder that Biscotti is such a hit among weed lovers – it is an absolute delight to your tastebuds and all your senses.

Growing conditions

Since Biscotti is a relatively new cultivar, little is known about growing it. However, the information available suggests that it grows like a typical indica-dominant strain, with short, bushy plants reaching around 100-120 cm. Pruning is advised to ensure the optimal development of the lower branches. It prefers a warmer climate. Therefore you can try growing it in Thailand.

After an average flowering time of 8 to 9 weeks, you can expect moderate yields of around 280 grams per square metre indoors and 280-350 grams per plant outdoors.
