Yo, what up world? It’s ya boy Dan, and today we’re talking about the Sunshine Dream strain. This bud is known for its slow-acting high that starts with a cerebral buzz that’ll have you feeling good in no time. The relaxation hits eventually, but if you overdo it, you might find yourself trapped on the couch or knocking out.
This skunky-smelling strain is best used in the evening when you’re looking to wind down and vibe out. It’s perfect for kicking back with your homies and listening to some tunes – after all, there’s a close link between weed and great music. All the legendary musicians of the 60s and 70s partook in drug use, and cannabis was just the tip of the iceberg for many of these groups.
Bodhi Seeds named Sunshine Dream after the famous documentary featuring the Grateful Dead, who were led by Jerry Garcia – a major proponent of cannabis. For him, it was a key component of social interaction. So it’s no surprise that Sunshine Dream is an excellent option for sharing among friends. You’ll improve your mood and be able to relax and enjoy good times with people who matter to you.
But enough talk – let’s get into the nitty-gritty of this awesome strain.
Sunshine Dream is an indica-dominant hybrid bred by Bodhi Seeds. It’s a potent cross of Bubbleshine and Appalachia. Don’t be fooled by the initial non-reaction after using this strain – have a couple tokes and wait a few minutes for the impact.
The cerebral high is likely to put a smile on your face as any negativity gathered in your mind drifts away. Eventually, you’re likely to feel uplifted as all the tension leaves your body. But don’t expect energy – Sunshine Dream causes you to feel relaxed and content with no desire to leave your current spot.
After a while, this feeling is amplified as the body high potentially leads to couch lock. By the height of your experience, the best thing to do is sit or lie down and enjoy the happy feeling. The sedation and relaxation combo is likely to result in users with a low THC tolerance falling asleep. So make sure you’re ready to doze off if you overdo it.
You’ll probably notice the dank, skunky odor of Sunshine Dream as soon as you crack open the bag. The scent only intensifies once you grind the buds. When you light it up, fruity berry notes fill the air while hints of earthiness and skunkiness linger.
Although Sunshine Dream ultimately leads to relaxation, it offers a harsh smoke that might make you cough if you’re new to cannabis. The skunkiness remains apparent on the inhale, and the smoke could sting your eyes. On the exhale, at least, elements of the fruitiness return.
The Sunshine Dream strain has pale green leaves with yellow and orange pistils that are extremely noticeable. The leaves are packed tightly around the stems, while the buds have flickers of purple or deep blue. Milky white trichomes coat this strain’s flowers, which is a clear indication of its potency.
Oddly enough, you might find it easier to locate Sunshine Dream seeds online than fresh bud in a licensed dispensary. But don’t worry – this strain is fairly easy to cultivate indoors or outdoors. If you grow it outdoors, it’s usually ready for harvest by mid-October. Indoors, it has a flowering time of 8-9 weeks.
In general, the THC content of Sunshine Dream can range from 17% to 21%, with 19% being average – not top shelf by modern standards but still deserving respect. As for CBD content, it’s low at around .3%.
Recreational users enjoy the happy sedation this strain provides. As far as medical marijuana patients are concerned, it’s an option if they have stress, depression or anxiety. Sunshine Dream’s high is euphoric, likely ensuring temporary forgetting of worries while lying on your sofa after a hard day at work.
It can also take the edge off chronic pain potentially caused by arthritis or fibromyalgia since it’s potent enough for that purpose. Finally, its sedation makes it a reasonable choice if you have insomnia – use it a few hours before bedtime to see if it helps you get to sleep.
As far as side effects go – excessive use might cause headaches, dizziness or nausea but isn’t as likely to increase feelings of anxiety or paranoia as other strains. You might experience dry eyes or mouth along with coughing fits too.
To conclude; Sunshine Dream is named after one of the most iconic bands in history and offers a chill-out vibe that’ll have you forgetting all your worries in no time. The cerebral buzz will make you feel uplifted while all tension leaves your body leading you towards deep relaxation so remember not to overdo it!
