Yo, what’s poppin’ my fellow cannabis enthusiasts? It’s your boy Dan, and I’m here to tell you about the return of the legendary Dr. Grinspoon strain from Barney’s Farm. She’s 100% sativa and named after the man himself, Dr. Lester Grinspoon – a cannabis activist, researcher, and author. This strain is packing a serious punch with its high THC percentage, and it’s a real head trip.
Dr. Grinspoon is a pure sativa heirloom cannabis seed variety that has been carefully bred over generations to resemble its landrace ancestors as closely as possible. If you’re all about genetic purity and natural aesthetics, then this is the strain for you. It hasn’t been on the market for three years, but now it’s back and ready to fill your grow rooms with joy.
This strain grows tall, thin, and gives you a lightning-strike to the brain. The high THC level and pleasant flavours work together to provide a refreshing and energising experience that’ll have you feeling like you’re on top of the world. Dr. Grinspoon even secured an award at the prestigious High Times Cannabis Cup.
But who is Dr. Lester Grinspoon, you ask? He’s a retired Associate Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and a well-respected voice in the cannabis activism community. His curiosity surrounding the herb began during the 1960s when use within the United States began to boom. At first, he believed cannabis was a harmful drug but after reading much of the scientific literature regarding cannabis safety, his opinion began to change. He went on to author numerous publications about cannabis, including Marihuana Reconsidered and Marihuana: The Forbidden Medicine.
Dr. Grinspoon has intimate experience with the medicinal effects of cannabis as he witnessed its anti-nausea and anti-vomiting effects in his son who underwent chemotherapy before he passed away. This strain is named after him as a tribute to his contributions to the cannabis community.
When it comes to growing Dr. Grinspoon, be prepared for something different – this strain has an unusual appearance compared to hybrid strains. It features a deep purple stem and widely spaced, string-like branches covered in small yet highly resinous flowers. It grows to a height of 55-63 inches and produces a yield of up to 400g/m² with a lengthy flowering time of 90–100 days.
The effects of this strain are no joke – it offers a powerful head high that sets in almost instantly due to its 25% THC content. It’s perfect for daytime use or even with your morning coffee for a wake-and-bake session. The terpene profile is defined by satisfying notes of honey, pine, wood, citrus, and earth – it’s like taking a walk through nature itself.
