Though Misty shares genes with White Widow, it finishes earlier and produces tighter buds with a greater yield. Bred in Amsterdam, this stain’s lineage also includes the genes of Northern Lights and Shiva. As a hybrid strain, it expresses more Indica than Sativa traits like its deep body relaxation, short and bushy appearance, and fast cultivation cycle. Users with pain, insomnia, and high-stress report feeling significant improvements in their conditions when smoking this strain. Finally, there’s a strong, pungent smell when growing it but the taste of her candy-sweet taste is beyond satisfying.
The Misty strain has average THC levels of 15 to 18% and the effects can vary depending on the timing of your harvest. Either way, the stone is powerful, which is why it’s considered a medical-grade strain. Although the genetics lean more in the direction of Indica, there are clear and distinguished cerebral effects. Feelings of bliss, happiness, and euphoria take over while at the same time there’s noticeable relaxation in the body. The stone can increase to a full-body couch-lock the more you smoke. Those with pain-related conditions, joint aches, migraines, and glaucoma feel great benefits after smoking Misty.
Misty is an easy plant to grow, which is perfect for those wanting a high-quality medical cannabis strain but are first-time or relatively new growers. With this strain, you can grow it either indoors or outdoors. However, indoors may be a better opinion because of the strong aroma. Having odour eliminating equipment and a controlled indoor environment can help you remain discrete. If you do decide to grow outdoors, though, the harvest is late September to early October. For a more uplifting smoke harvest after 8 weeks. Finally, the yields can bring in 400 to 450 grams per M2.
In true Indica fashion, the Misty strain appears short and stocky during flowering. The leaves are thick and the color of lime green. Buds are heavy, dense, and covered in frost which attributes to their high THC content.
Misty gives off a powerful musky smell, some say it's like old sweat. Another way to describe the fragrant aroma is with the words sour and pungent, and a slight hint of citrus.
As far as our hybrids go, the Misty strain is a great choice. It has an awesome genetic profile, it’s an easy strain to grow, and when left to flower for a full 10 weeks, it has a rich spicy scent and creates a stronger and deeper physical buzz. However, if you choose to harvest a few weeks earlier, the strain effects will be more uplifting and euphoric, but can still put the body at ease.
Once the buds are dried and cured, storing them inside a glass jar is a wise idea to keep the musky smell to a minimum. Unlike, its powerful aroma Misty has a completely different taste. When you inhale from your joint, the taste on your mouth and in the air is sweet and tasty. Yet, the exhale introduces some surprising new tastes. That initial sweetness on your inhale turns into a spicy lemon flavour, leaving a nice aftertaste on your tongue.
