Problem: Depression
Solution Strain: Dr. Grinspoon

This strain was named in honor of noted cannabis researcher and author Dr. Lester Grinspoon, the Harvard Medical School professor whose brilliant advocacy and writing in defense of marijuana spans four decades. Pure sativas are a true rarity in ganja genetics, and Dr. Grinspoon is one of the best I’ve ever sampled that’s available in seed form. But be warned: The high is so strong and energetic that it can induce racing hearts and even panic attacks in unsuspecting tokers. Long-lasting and very cerebral, this is a true connoisseur’s strain, with medicinal properties that aid in the treatment of depression and nausea.

Dr. Grinspoon is recommended only for expert growers who are interested in creating some truly wonderful head stash. The plants take a very long time to finish, stretching tall and growing small, shiny nuggets all over. Rumor has it that the original seed was found in a block of some of the finest hashish to hit Holland in years, but Derry of Barney’s Farm has been keeping its true origins a secret.
