Recon, aka ReCon, is a powerful indica-leaning hybrid that is great for relaxing and unwinding. It gets its name from the fact that it is descended from LA Confidential, a powerful hybrid. Cannadential is one of its parents. DNA Genetics developed strains like Holy Grail and Chocolope, which are both highly psychoactive. Recon’s sedative effects are supposed to last longer than usual because of its 13 percent to 23% THC content. The psychoactivity of this bud has been measured at between 13 and 23% THC.

Recon’s flowers are on the modest side and cling together in tight, popcorn-like clusters. The buds are rounded and have a densely packed construction typical of indicas. The narrow, wavy leaves curl tightly in on themselves, hiding the dark, rust-colored bristles (which are actually pistils) that run down their core stems. Finally, this vibrant blossom is smothered in a sheen of glittering ice white trichomes that make it difficult to cut without a high-quality grinder.
Recon’s buds have a sharp, spicy aroma that hits the nasal cavity on first sniff. An underlying sweetness emerges as you look more closely at the buds, approaching a dank, almost fermented musk. On the other hand, breaking or grinding these hard buds releases delicate herbal undertones. Recon burns harshly and harshly in a pipe or joint, causing irritated eyes or sinuses in the user. On exhale, this thick, rich smoke has a sweet-sour flavor profile.
For an indica, Recon has a quick high that reaches the core and limbs swiftly. A soothing warmth spreads down from the neck and outward across the center and limbs almost immediately. This numbness may develop toward pseudo paralysis depending on the user’s preferences, as well as their particular tolerance. Many users also report experiencing a strange sensation of sensory distortion — this can manifest in everything from slowed visual depth perception to an amplification of sights and sounds to a sense of time dilation. If you’re feeling up to it, enjoy the effects of this mind-altering strain by relaxing alone with some atmospheric music or a compelling film. This one-sided strain provides little to no mental stimulation (unless the force of Recon’s physical high is considered). Because of this, smokers should not anticipate to accomplish a lot of work while under the influence of Recon. Rather, enjoy this bud as part of an effort to improve modest, laid-back gatherings or ignite some intimacy and romance. Smokers can expect intractable couchlock – and even sleep – as the high intensifies or dosage is increased. Recon is one strain that’s best consumed at night or just before bed since it has a purely relaxing and immobile profile.
Recon may be used for a variety of medical cannabis applications. Its comprehensive physical relaxation might help with aches and pains, whether they’re temporary or chronic, as in the case of fibromyalgia or arthritis. The anti-inflammatory effects of the strain can also assist with common irritations like headaches and nausea. Recon’s pleasant, uplifting high might temporarily relieve tension, sadness, and anxiety-induced symptoms in a psychological sense. This plant can even induce a deep and peaceful sleep in large doses, as previously said. Because it is unlikely to cause any overly strong ideas, Recon may be an excellent choice for those that are anxious or have a low tolerance for THC.
Fortunately, DNA Genetics has made Recon seeds available for purchase online. The strain may be cultivated both indoors and outdoors, although outside growth is only possible if the temperature stays above 70 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the day. Recon’s plants have a distinctive short and bushy indica silhouette, and they should be trimmed frequently to allow any broad fan-leaves that could block light and air from reaching low-growing flowering nodes. When cultivated indoors, Recon blooms in 8 to 9 weeks and is ready for harvest in late September to early October when cultivated outdoors.
Recon is a wonderfully potent indica that’s worth adding to any indica connoisseur’s collection. It has a spacey, relaxing high and a distinctive flavor that will stick in your memory.
