Red Dragon is an exotic hybrid cannabis strain with unique genetics. It is a cross between a rare Himalayan Kush variety and Utopia Haze, a landrace sativa from Brazil. The result is a strain that’s loved by both medical and recreational users across the globe.
The effects of Red Dragon are slightly sativa dominant, characterized by an uplifting euphoria that leaves you giggly, talkative, sociable, and happy. This is one of those energizing strains, making it a great option for users looking to enjoy the effects of cannabis without becoming lethargic. This makes it especially popular as a daytime strain. However, with around 23% THC, this strain can be overwhelming for some users, especially those with a low tolerance, so it’s best to take it easy.
The unique effects of Red Dragon aren’t just limited to recreational use. In fact, many medical patients turn to this strain as well. Its uplifting effects may help relieve fatigue and a low mood, as well as stimulate productivity and creativity. The relaxing effects of this strain may also help with stress or anxiety, while the physical effects may also help tame mild pain.
The flavors and aromas of this strain are very intriguing, boasting a complex combination of woody pine aromas with spicy, slightly herbal flavours. When smoking/vaporizing, some users also detect subtle fruit flavours or even sweet undertones as well.
Red Dragon is also highly regarded for being easy to cultivate and maintain, making it an ideal option for novice growers. It grows very fast and generally reaches heights of only about 90cm. It flowers in roughly 9 weeks, producing heavy harvests of up to 600 gr/m² indoors.
Red Dragon buds are beautiful to look at; they’re heavy and dense and boast a beautiful bright green colour with deep red hues. As with any high-quality strain, Red Dragon buds are heavily coated with THC-rich trichomes.
