About Falcon 9
The Falcon 9 strain may not be the space capsule, but it can still send your mind to the moon. It was bred from Tina and Sunset Sherbet and produces a huge yield. Its breeder, Exotic Genetix, is rightly proud of this richly colored hybrid. This 70/30 indica-dominant strain has a rich lineage full of tasty favorites, including Durban Poison, Chemdawg, Girl Scout Cookies, Orange Valley OG, and The Cube. Your engine is in good hands powered by this bright-tasting bud.
This strain has a beautiful, rich color with green buds that sparkle purple beneath bright orange pistils. The trichomes are numerous but small, like little beads of resin on the buds’ cone-shaped structure. The strain gives off earthy, gassy aromas in the ground, as it grows for 56-63 days before it’s ready for harvesting. Falcon 9 is a heavy yielder if you treat it right, which according to the grower involves keeping its multi-topped bushy growing structure well-managed with frequent pruning. The goal is to let the strain devote the most resources to its multiple tops by controlling its growth, especially in the veg phase. We recommend this strain for growers with a little more experience under their belts.
The flavors of this strain favor the gassy, fruity, and herbal side of things. The rich, earthy aroma transforms into tartness once the grapey and sour terpenes start to make themselves known. Its profile includes limonene, myrcene, caryophyllene, and pinene, so you can expect a lot of familiar sensations: lemon, pepper, spice, pine, diesel fuel, and a hint of floral vanilla on the aftertaste.
The strain’s effects focus on energizing and exciting its users with happiness-inducing tingles. Falcon 9 is not the best strain for concentrating on work, but it excels at encouraging mental energy and happy euphoria. The state of bliss encouraged by this indica-dominant strain starts at your neck and slowly works its way around your body, encouraging total relaxation. As you work through the high, rather than become sedated, you’ll feel social and peppy, which can release endorphins all on its own. Eventually, you’ll get tired though, so be prepared to crash into a sleepy state at some point.
Some users report dizziness and drowsiness on the strain, which has a THC level in the upper teens. Dose it conservatively and let yourself enjoy the happiness if you can get your hands on the galactic purple buds of Falcon 9. Just be aware that if you plan on growing it, you may need to keep Google handy to get the technique down.
