Snowcap is a good example of the benefits of cross-breeding marijuana strains. Originally named White Haze #1, the plant has a distinctly citrusy flavor with just the right amount of menthol. Snowcap has the parent strain of Haze, and it is responsible for the heady, cerebral high that this plant produces.
The Sativa side of Snowcap has a strong lemon flavor and gives the plant its energizing nature. The effects of this strain will make you feel unusually uplifted and happy. In addition, medical marijuana patients often find Snowcap to help manage symptoms related to anxiety, pain, fatigue, and depression.
The adverse effects of this strain are usually mild, and the most common include dry eyes, dry mouth, and paranoia. The THC level of Snowcap is very high, and it can average at 16%. Snowcap buds have a snow-white covering of crystal-coated trichomes that make it easy to see why this strain received its name.
Snowcap is also very easy to grow, as it can thrive indoors and out in a greenhouse. When growing this strain indoors, growers are limited in their vegetative period to between about three to four weeks, depending on the preferred height of the plants. The flowering time is roughly nine to 10 weeks.
