Effects & Usage



The enigmatic LSD strain, as captivating as its namesake, is a delight for cannabis connoisseurs. This balanced hybrid, a product of the union between an Afghani landrace indica and a classic Skunk variety, promises a thrilling intense experience that caters to both the mind and the body. Graced with a THC content ranging from 19% to 24% and a high CBD concentration, this strain is extraordinary.


The onset of the LSD strain is relatively fast, with the initial euphoric and cerebral effects taking hold within minutes. You will feel so upbeat and energetic that your perceptions of space might get slightly distorted.

These sensations might be overpowering for novice smokers, who should stay away from LSD until they build a higher tolerance to cannabis. However, if you have some experience with potent strains, you are in for an extraordinary journey. Expect some overwhelmingly positive vibes about yourself and the world around you. In this regard, the name LSD fits the strain quite aptly.

Around an hour after consumption, you can start feeling progressively more relaxed. Eventually, it spreads through your entire body, leaving you numb to pain.

Staying productive might be hard once these effects kick in, so we recommend smoking LSD when you have ample time to relax.

Side effects

The most common side effects of indulging in the LSD strain are the familiar sensations of dry mouth and dry eyes. However, given its potency, caution is advised when consuming this strain. In some instances, this high-THC flower has been known to trigger paranoia in sensitive individuals. Therefore, novices should tread lightly and begin with small doses.

Taste & Smell


LSD buds are typically dense and compact, with a dark green colour. They are adorned with a coating of resinous trichomes and a few light orange hairs.

The scent and flavour profile is more intriguing. A fresh, earthy fragrance with noticeable pine notes intermingles with a skunk, citrusy aroma. Inhaling this will make you feel like you are in a wet forest. This complex scent indicates the flavour, which follows with the same sensations of pine and dank skunkiness, complemented by musky, hash-like odours, revealing its Afghani heritage. On the exhale, you will feel a sweet citrusy sense that tends to linger pleasantly in your mouth. Remember that this is a very pungent smoke – discretion is advised if you do not want to disturb your neighbours.



LSD was created by the renowned breeders at Barney’s Farm in Amsterdam, who wanted to develop a strain that could emulate the mind-altering effects of its namesake in a more controlled and therapeutic manner. By crossing two legends, Mazar-I-Sharif, an indica-dominant landrace from Afghanistan and Skunk #1, one of the oldest skunk varieties, they created a powerful hybrid with an impressive pedigree.

Growing conditions

Cultivating the LSD strain is a relatively straightforward process but requires proper care and attention. This cannabis variety thrives in indoor and outdoor environments, with a preference for warm and sunny climates. If grown outdoors, it needs to be sheltered to protect the buds from rotting. However, it is resistant to pests and moulds, making it a robust choice for novice and experienced growers alike.

The LSD takes a longer time to flower, typically between 9 to 10 weeks. With an average height rarely exceeding 1.2-1.5m, this strain is suitable even for those with limited space.

This plant handsomely rewards its patient growers. They can expect up to 500 grams per outdoor plant and 500-600 grams per square metre indoors.
