Lavender – Soma Sacred Seeds
1st Place HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup Indica, 2005
Lavender is one of the all-time-best mellow, violet-colored, indica-dominant strains available to the public today. By the time she’s finished flowering, the leaves will have turned a super-dark purple bordering on black, with bright orange veins running throughout. Dense, winy nuggets of Lavender are a photographer’s dream, and she exhibits beautiful fall foliage when ripe. The taste is of plum and pomegranate, well balanced by the hashy afternotes. A dry toke will also reveal hints of an anise or licorice back end.
Lavender plants stretch a bit more than the average indica, so be prepared. Her relaxing and sedative high can be a bit much for the unsuspecting toker, but Soma says it’s a perfect nighttime or rainy-day smoke, though not recommended for use at parties or prior to activities. For this reason, medical patients looking for help with insomnia should try some Lavender for evening relief.
