Permafrost, bred by Rogue Buds, is a sativa-dominant hybrid named for its frosty coat of crystal trichomes and fresh pine aroma. While some believe Permafrost to be the love child of Trainwreck and White Widow, others claim it comes from Kali Mist and Trinity Snow. True to its hybrid genetics, Permafrost’s relaxing effects are balanced between mind and body. Larger doses demonstrate the strain’s potency: as sensory detail peaks, attention becomes transfixed, and a full-body calm takes over. For this reason, Permafrost may help patients treating ADD/ADHD and anxiety symptoms, and others have reported its success in treating arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, and gastrointestinal disorders.
The Permafrost strain provides consumers a euphoric, happy, uplifting, relaxing, and focused high. Permafrost comes from the crossing of the strains Trainwreck and White Widow. Trainwreck is a mind-bending hybrid with potent sativa effects that hit like a freight train. Mexican and Thai sativas were bred with Afghani indicas to produce this Northern California staple, passing on a sweet lemon and spicy pine aroma. Trainwreck begins its speedy hurtle through the mind with a surge of euphoria, awakening your inner creativity and happiness. Migraines, pain, and arthritis are mowed down by Trainwreck’s high THC content, and many patients also use it for relief of anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and PTSD. White Widow is a balanced hybrid bred out of the Netherlands by Green House Seeds. White Widow has blessed every Dutch coffee shop menu since its birth in the 1990s. White Widow is a must try for anyone who considers themselves a cannabis connoisseur and delights in creative, productive, non-lethargic, anxiety-relieving highs. Looking at the parent strains of this strain, its clear to see why Permafrost is so highly sought after.
Generally, just a few hits bring on a strong sense of euphoria which is followed by an increase in the flow of creative juices and energy. Users often feel uplifted and focused after consuming the Permafrost strain. This strain is good for morning or afternoon use as the energizing and uplifting effects often makes users feel a need to get stuff done. Users that choose this strain should be aware that it comes with all the usual side effects of most strains – cotton mouth, dry eyes, paranoia, dizziness and headaches. This hybrid is most often reportedly used to alleviate overwhelming stress, anxiety, nervousness, fatigue and tension typically brought on by depression-related disorders. The Permafrost high is powerful with an average THC level of 20-23% and full-bodied effect that’ll calm your mind and induce hunger. This strain is a great choice for treating a variety of conditions such as nausea, appetite loss, chronic pain, depression, fibromyalgia, migraines, and stress.
The prominent flavors of the Permafrost strain include earthy, pine, and citrusy, lime notes. This bud has a pungent flavor and skunky aroma with a sharp, spicy exhale and an herbal pine aroma.
