I saw Red Leb at the local shop and got excited. Little to be found online about it, though we used to smoke the Red Leb that came in through Fishguard DECADES ago, so how nobody knows about it until now is funny! The young kids think they've got all these new-fangled, high-tech, environmentally unfriendly, great weed-growing skills but those of us that were born before 1997 know differently. There is room for us all, but seeing this oldie made me smile. Then I smoked some and it made me giggle, which is just EXACTLY what it used to do a thousand years ago. Very happy. I'll be back for more tomorrow. It sends me a little shaky initially but I know that once it levels out I will get a stable sativa-like ride for a while. No paranoia. Awake, not necessarily functional, or interested in talking to anyone OUTSIDE my head but inside my head is very busy! What I need to look out for, though, is where I am when I smoke this. This WILL put me out as the high drops off and the sedation kicks in so I need to be either at home or somewhere I can sleep or at least be still and quiet and not hassled! NOT out and about, definitely NOT driving. Don't drive under the influence.
Indica Dominant Hybrid - 60% Indica / 40% Sativa
THC: 24% - 25%Red Lebanese is a slightly indica dominant hybrid strain (60% indica/40% sativa) created through crossing an unknown combination of strains that originate from Lebanon. Although the true heritage of this bud has been lost to age-old breeder secrecy, this bud is still heavily sought after for its classic effects and delicious flavor. The Red Lebanese high starts with a slow build that continues to grow and grow, until it reaches a potency that can easily overwhelm you if you’re not experienced. You’ll feel a heady onset with an increase in creativity before the high launches into your body, leaving you totally stoned and hopelessly sedated before dropping you off into a long and peaceful sleep. In combination with its super high 24-25% average THC level, these effects give Red Lebanese an edge in treating conditions such as chronic stress, ADD or ADHD, depression, and migraines or headaches. This bud has a timeless sour citrus flavor with a rich nutty herbal exhale. The aroma is of earthy herbs and citrusy woods with a touch of sour spices as the nugs are burned. Red Lebanese buds have dense flat spade-shaped forest green nugs with bright red hairs, minty undertones, and coating of sandy amber crystal trichomes.
Share This Strain On:
My local shop in S.E. Oregon has a very nice collection of lost strains. This was a wonderful throwback to the 70's and the 'Red Leb Hashish' we all enjoyed. The Lebanese roots of this cannabis is obvious to the educated senses. The taste is exceptional and the 60/40 Indica, Sativa cross makes for a nice afternoon into evening high. Highly recommend to the old Stoner. I also encourage anyone who hasn't at least smoked the Hashish to treat yourself. 25.4 % THC, much more stonier high than that.
