G13, also known as “G-13” or “Government Indica Strain 1,” is an indica dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa) strain with unknown parentage. This bud is rumored to have been created by the US Government during the 60’s and 70’s when they were experimenting with growing native Afghani weed strains for “medical” purposes. Despite its confusing origins, G13 is definitely one bud that you should try at least once in your life, especially given its powerful effects and insanely potent 24% average THC level. The G13 high starts with a euphoric lift that hits you hard with a sense of energy and a slight increase in motivation that doesn’t stay around for very long. As your mind soars through happiness, your body will fall victim to a heavy buzzy effect that will lull you down into a deep sense of laziness and relaxation that lasts for hours and hours on end. These effects give G13 an advantage in treating conditions such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and insomnia. G13 has a sweet earthy flavor with a skunky smooth exhale that’s surprisingly pleasant. The aroma is powerfully pungent with a rotting skunky berry overtone that can quickly become harsh. G13 buds have lumpy super dense dark olive green spade-shaped nugs with sparse amber hairs and a thick coating of frosty light blue crystal trichomes.
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 80% Indica / 20% Sativa
THC: 13% – 19%
With an 80:20 indica/sativa ratio, the strain is an indica dominant hybrid with a bit of history of its own. It began its journey from Holland in the early 1980s and made its way to the United States. It has grown immensely popular and is a cross between Hash Plant strains along with Northern Lights #1, or so they say. Each nugget holds a woody, earthy aroma, which is sweet at the same time. The smell can easily be identified but is not as potent as you would expect it to be. The strain has a spicy and delicious taste to it that will most definitely send a chill down your spine, out of excitement that is. The buds are tight and are completely covered by resin along with green leaves with red hairs. After smoking the strain, you will feel exceptionally relaxed. However, do not be surprised if you feel sleepy and are locked to your couch. What is really interesting about the strain is that it has numerous medical applications at the same time. Essentially, it is used by patients suffering from insomnia. But considering its pain fighting effects it can also be used to treat chronic pains, aches and even migraines if the situation demands it.
