Close your eyes and imagine far off beaches, long-lost temples, (Cannabis online) and food so good you’ll never want to eat anything else – that’s one way to fantasize about Asia. Or you could try this incredibly rare and exciting strain and it could be all the dream you need. Asian Fantasy was long rumored to have gone extinct due to a super secretive breeder and super secretive genetics, but thanks to some very determined fans of this dying breed, you can all rest assured that she does still exist.
What has been determined, despite not having any confirmation of parentage, is that this is a strong sativa with a wide-ranging THC average between 17% and 24%. Though you could surmise that the name “Asian Fantasy” comes from its mysteriousness, it’s more likely that the large, curly buds enveloped in deep red hairs and native Asian roots might have something to do with it. These beautiful nugs are sweet and tart with aromas of spice and lemon. The overall appearance is said to be similar to a lobster claw, making it more than just a dank bud, but a sight to see.
The high is considered trippy and meditative yet invigorating. You’ll feel an immediate upsurge in creativity and mood, giving you tingles throughout your body that starts in your head and works their way to your limbs. The warmth will spread to your core as your body starts to completely relax, however at this phase it is not uncommon to become aroused. If you are easily persuaded, this strain is a great aphrodisiac. The intensity of the strain comes in waves and is highly psychoactive, so this is not recommended for those who are susceptible to paranoia or hallucinations. (Cannabis online)
Asian Fantasy isn’t just a fever dream of twisting and turning psychedelic effects, it is also utterly relaxing and ideal for the treatment of certain conditions. Because of the uplifting nature of this strain you’ll find it good for mood and mental health disorders such as depression, chronic stress, and mild cases of bipolar disorder. It isn’t recommended for those who suffer from PTSD or anxiety as the psychoactive effects can agitate those conditions. As it has relatively strong sedative effects for the body, nausea, pain, and muscle spasms can also benefit from this strain. Other uses include chronic fatigue, erectile dysfunction, and low libido.
Since this strain is shrouded in mystery, it really proves near impossible to find accurate growing instructions. Though because it is a sativa from South East Asia, it’s safe to assume you will have longer cultivation times and grow patterns that thrive in tropical climates. Yields vary by condition, but keeping temperatures steady will be key to your success.
This 100% sativa strain is considered by many to be the Holy Grail of cannabis since it is hard to find, but extremely worth the Indiana Jones-ing you’ll have to do to get near it. Sightings have become few and far between, but those who have tried it liken it to a “mini Burning Man” experience. Needless to say, because of how energetic and strange this high gets, it’s best for daytime use. (Cannabis online)
