I tried this strain for it's high CBD content. 1 OZ was decarb'd at @235-240F for about 45 minutes until slightly brown and nutty smelling. Then blended with 1.5 cups warm Ghee butter in a food processor on lowest setting for @30 seconds. The resulting green slurry was simmered using double boiler method for 4 hours. Resulting mixture was water-washed 3 times and produced a beautiful olive coloured butter with no taste. Mix this into 2 boxes of Walmart brownie mix, as it has a high oil requirement. Make thinner brownies. Brownies were baked at 320F until done in 45 mins. Yield is over 100 doses, @ dollar a dose. Average chunk weighs 5-7 grams and produces a mellow high at 40 minutes. Second stage kicks in at 90 minutes and gives a warm lucid buzz with cycles of euphoria and happiness. Time warps are common, along with forgetfulness and laughter. Moderate/strong hunger and munchies. Some loss of coordination in legs. buzz lasts until 4.5 hours after consumption and ends so suddenly, it's like a sobriety switch being flicked. After effects are contentment, sleepiness a warm body buzz. Joints slightly stiff the next day, blood pressure will be lower and some friends have reported clearer sight; maybe ocular pressure changed? Overall nice buzz that is suitable for those seeking less "stoner" and more medicinal effects. Never smoked it but highly recommended in edible form.
Hybrid - 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 7% - 8%, CBD: 6%Penelope is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through a cross of unknown hybrids. One taste of this lovely lady and you’ll be totally hooked and hers forever. Penelope packs a super balanced high that hits both mind and body with a high level of medicinal potency thanks to its high 5-6% CBD level and minimal 7-8% THC level. That being said, the Penelope high is pretty mellow in nature, with effects that will have you feeling totally at ease with the world around you rather than anxious or paranoid. The high starts with a subtle lift of effects that fills your mind with a sense of happiness and relief, easing away any negative or racing thoughts and replacing them with pure euphoria. A touch of focus comes next, lending itself well to any mental task that you happen to have on hand. With these effects and its high medicinal value, Penelope is often chosen to treat a wide variety of conditions including gastrointestinal disorders, mood swings or depression, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and inflammation. This bud has a spicy herbal woody flavor with a heavy pungent skunky aroma to match. Penelope buds have dense and skinny forest green pepper-shaped nugs with lots of thin orange hairs and a coating of tiny frosty amber crystal trichomes.
