Its smell and taste are of pine and earthy, with undertones of tangy citrus. Its buds are heart-shaped and jungle deep green, with amber pisitils and opaque trichomes. It derives its name from its resemblance to a pear cactus.
The parent strains of Cactus are both indica: Northern Lights and Afghani.
THC levels of Cactus believe to average between 15%-20% because of its potency noted by reviewers, though it has not yet been officially lab tested. Its high will produce a balance of the mind and body, with a boost in motivation and liberation. It can be consumed throughout the day despite being indica – it will not cause sedation or couch-lock. However, slight lazy waves may occur once the high begins to wear down. The body will be relieved of tension and aches, with many reviewers highlighting its ability to numb pains.
Negative side-effects include dry mouth and eyes, with slight paranoia if consumed improperly.
