Rock Candy is an Indica dominant strain, consisting of 80% Indica and just 20% Sativa. It is a cross between the famous Sour Diesel and the Tahoe Alien strains. The THC levels of this strain are in the moderate range of between 15 and 19%. It is famous for its perfect blend of sweet and citrus flavours that result in a distinctly pungent taste that becomes quite spicy as you exhale.
It is also known for the lemony balm scent that gradually fills the room. The effect of the Rock Candy strain is usually described as a short-lasting relaxed feeling that grows into a very deep body high, making you feel uplifted and stimulated, while at the same time relaxed and comfortable. These feelings usually result in a peaceful sleep, after which you wake up fully rested.
This strain has a few side-effects, including eye and mouth dryness. The medical applications of the Rock Candy strain are numerous and well-documented. Due to its potent effects, it is widely used in the treatment of patients who suffer from appetite loss, chronic pain and stress. It has also been proven to be very effective in the treatment of insomnia and recurrent headaches.
