Candy Rain Strain is a hybrid of neither candy nor rain. It was London Poundcake and Gelato that made this strain, hot out of the labs at Cookie Fam Genetics. The result is dough-flavored, sweet and peppery, with tones of gas and earth. The flavor profile is complex, the sense-stimulation is above average, and the stress of your ho-hum week is a thing of the past.
The strain rains candy on your palette as soon as you light it up. The fruit and sour citrus flavors mix with tones of earth and diesel fuel for a unique little Indica-built powerhouse (70/30). The terpenes come out with a smidge of limonene and myrcene, bringing in the citrus and balsam flavors, but caryophyllene is the big one. That’s where Candy Rain gets its spiciness, with hints of earth, musk, pepper, and clove. It’s instrumental in giving some cannabis strains their kick, as well as adding anti-inflammation to its list of benefits (more on that in a bit).
The Candy Rain plant grows bright nugs, shiny with white crystals and shaped like green grapes. The amber hairs are thin and grow over the dark purple at the center of each bud. The leaves are small and the trichomes are sticky with resin. The strain grows well for beginners, though the yield is smaller than average. Due to the strain’s naturally low germination rate, the seeds aren’t commercially available anymore. But still, if you have some, we’ll drop a brief tip.
GROWING TIP: The strain’s vegetative stage lasts for six weeks. During this time, if you’re growing indoors, humidity and CO2 levels are really important with Candy Rain, as are using high-quality advanced nutrients. Remember, its yield is naturally low – you’ll have to do everything you can to keep up.
The effects of Candy Rain begin with happiness and relaxation – this strain is for people who want to feel super calm and happy without being sedated. So we recommend it for pain and depression for sure, stress and anxiety too, but not so much insomnia. It can help, but it won’t knock you out (if that’s what you need).
Instead, Candy Rain gives you euphoric giggles. With a THC average of 18.5%, it’s accessible to beginners and not too much of a wimp for experienced users. Those who love the taste of nuts, earth, and fresh berries have a lot to look forward to. It’s unfortunate that you can’t grow the strain for yourself. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make it rain.
