Sweet Tooth is an award-winning indica hybrid that descends from three purebred landrace strains: Hawaiian, Afghani, and Nepalese. This combination of genetics gives Sweet Tooth its tempting aroma profile reminiscent of floral sweetness. High levels of terpene linalool make this strain a popular pick among insomnia patients, as it enables them to find relief from stress and pain, as well as get rid of racing thoughts before bedtime.
Sweet Tooth’s buds are characterized by a light-to-medium, greenish shade, threaded through with appetizing amber hairs and sugary crystal frosting full of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. As the plant flowers and becomes ripe, it can also yield deep purple spots amongst the leaves. The strain itself might not hit you as hard as other varieties on the market – it has 14% to 16% THC on average – but its hands down one of the most delicious strains on the planet.
Speaking of which, when you smell its buds, you’ll immediately notice the sweet presence reminding you of candy and flowers at the same time. The distinct aroma can fill a room in the blink of an eye and bring up the scent of sweet berries along with exotic fruits, finishing off with a broad palette of floral fragrances.
The best part about Sweet Tooth is that it tastes even better than it smells, which isn’t a common phenomenon among smoked cannabis flowers. As you exhale the smoke, it will leave a candy-like flavor on your palate and tongue, with a delicate aftertaste of pine woods.
When it comes to the effects, Sweet Tooth can make you feel like you’re being wrapped in a cozy blanket, making you feel safe and entirely relaxed in no time. This indica-dominant hybrid brings up feelings of euphoria and will keep your mood elevated for a long time.
Sweet Tooth also comes in handy for those seeking invigorating cerebral effects that can curb anxiety especially after being put under too much pressure throughout the day. That being said, it’s mostly recommended as an evening/nighttime strain.
This indica-dominant hybrid is widely appreciated by patients who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation and thus have lost their appetite due to its severe side effects. Moreover, sweet tooth is often the go-to strain for the treatment of insomnia.
Despite being a potent indica, Sweet Tooth comes with few minuscule side effects, such as itchy eyes, dry mouth, and feeling slightly dehydrated, which may result in a headache.
It is also a strain that’s quite easy to grow, both in outdoor and indoor settings. The plant will need some trimming and support as it flowers because its branches will get heavy over time.
After an average of 8 to 9 weeks of flowering, you can expect a hearty harvest of about 16 ounces of bud per square meter in the indoor setting. When growing outdoors, Sweet Tooth is ready to be harvested around early October.
