There is something in this that has not yet been totally identified. Whatever it is, it is intoxicating.
South American is a 100% pure sativa strain that is indigenous to the South American region. These flowers are typically landraces, although the exact indica to sativa ratio depends greatly on the latitude and precise region in which they are grown. This bud typically has a THC level of 10% or more and a lower CBD level than their indica cousins. The South American high is typical of a classic sativa strain, with an energetic and uplifting onset that hits hard and fast almost immediately after smoking. You’ll be motivated and creatively inspired with a sense of building buzzing energy that seemingly has no ceiling. As the high continues you’ll begin to feel a sharp pang of hunger that is not typical of heavy sativa strains. Oftentimes the high becomes so powerful that users can fall into a deep trance like sleep that is easily interrupted. These effects make South American strains perfect for treating conditions such as chronic pain, muscle spasms or tremors, inflammation, and cramps. This bud has an almost confusing flavor of sweet lime with a hint of creamy tobacco upon exhale that is almost like a cup of coffee. The aroma is of sweet skunky earth with a spicy citrusy overtone. South American buds have small to medium sized nugs that are typically very leafy and range in color from light minty green to deep olive green. These nugs usually have spattered amber or orange hairs and a coating of crystal trichomes and sticky sweet resin.
