Love Potion #1 Sativa Hybrid - 5 gram bags for $24.99 or 1 ounce for $119.99
Potion #1 (not to be confused with Love Potion #9) is a sativa-dominant
strain that provides buzzy energy and an intense cerebral mindset.True
to its name, Love Potion #1 can also serve as a strong aphrodisiac in
right set and setting. Created by Reeferman Seeds, this upbeat bud is a
cross between alleged government mind control substance G13 and a Colombian Gold
sativa landrace. What results is a dank, lemon-tinged flavor profile
and a laser-focused high that’s potent for even experienced cannabis
consumers. Love Potion’s effects even earned it the title of Best Sativa in the 2004 High Times Cannabis Cup. This strain’s THC content has been measured at between 8% and 18%.
Potion #1’s flowers are small to medium in size and cling together in
solid, almost spherical nugs. These buds have the dense structure
usually associated with indicas. The leaves are a deep, rich olive green
and are twisted through with orange to brown hairs (which are actually
pistils, structures intended to catch pollen from fertilizing male
plants). Finally, amber-colored trichomes cover the inner and outer
surfaces of these heavy flowers, giving them a resinous texture and a
slightly yellow sheen.
When properly cured,
Love Potion #1’s flowers give off a woodsy scent that mixes notes of
damp earth and pine. There are also some citrus hints lurking underneath
to brighten up the overall impression. Meanwhile, grinding up the
sticky buds gives off a skunky-sweet pungency, a testament to the
strain’s Colombian heritage. When combusted in a joint or a pipe, Love
Potion’s smoke can give off a harsh, acrid smoke that might induce
coughing for the uninitiated. On the exhale though, this smoke has a
refreshingly piney and lime flavor.
Love Potion #1 can also
have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its lucid sense
of focus can be a boon to those with attention deficit disorders, while
its mood-elevating properties may temporarily improve the symptoms of
stress and depression. Physiologically speaking, Love Potion’s body high
can relieve all kinds of aches and pains, both temporary and chronic.
Its anti-inflammatory properties can also take care of irritations like
headaches and nausea. Because it can bring about some fairly intense,
recursive patterns of thinking, this strain is not recommended for
patients who are prone to panic and paranoia or who have a low THC
or not you’re using it to enhance your sex life, Love Potion #1’s
high-powered energy makes it a must-try for sativa lovers. It’s also a
very social strain that can be a treat to break out at parties.
