Benefits

Watermelon cannabis offers a unique experience, described by users as profoundly relaxing. This is an Indica-leaning hybrid with THC levels ranging around  22%. This cultivar, also known for a gentle mental uplift, has THC levels as high as 29% in some phenotypes.

Additionally, certain cuts of Watermelon have been found to contain CBD levels of around 1%, which can contribute to its therapeutic properties without inducing overwhelming psychoactive effects.

Onset

The high starts with a cerebral sense of ease, leading to a relaxing body high that can become sedative. On the way to sleep, you feel a sense of creativity and calm, perfect for engaging in reflective solo activities or conversations.

Users also report an initial euphoria, which tends to be short-lasting. These cerebral experiences tend to end with a couch-lock effect, mainly when taken in higher quantities.

Uses

It is celebrated for helping ease stress, fatigue, and chronic pain. People with muscle conditions, arthritis, or mood disorders may appreciate the Watermelon flower. The strain’s effects are diverse, providing both a euphoric uplift and deep sedation, which can be especially helpful for managing anxiety and promoting sleep.

Side effects

The main side effects include dry mouth and dry eyes, common to many strains. Some users may experience dizziness or slight paranoia, especially with higher doses due to its potent THC content. It’s recommended to consume Watermelon in moderation, particularly for those new to cannabis or strains with higher THC levels.

For those preferring indoor cultivation, the Sea of Green (SOG) method is recommended to maximise yield.
