Red Dragon Marijuana Strain
Sativa Dominant Hybrid
For most people, the first thought that comes to mind is the film adaptation of Thomas Harris’ popular book character, Hannibal. Scary character, right? But our Red Dragon is far from the insane doctor, but one that brings us to a state of happiness.
Bred by Barney’s Farm, this Sativa-dominant cannabis strain is one of the top strains, if you want something that uplifts your spirit. Think of the Red Dragon as a unique ultimate feel-good strain. Instead of sinister laughter, you would be giggling with pure joy with this strain.
Hannibal may be good at playing with his victims’ mind, but our Red Dragon is great at managing problems with mental health. In fact, this strain is one of the most recommended strains for dealing with stress, depression and other anxiety issues.
This is a powerful strain that even those with high tolerance could almost immediately feel the effects. There could never be a perfect strain, which is why instead of a few, there are now hundreds of different hybrids. But if there is one that could have been the one strain for all, the Red Dragon should be one.
Unique and exquisite, these are the two words that best describes its parents. Red Dragon traces its lineage to a Brazilian Sativa called the Utopia Haze (South American) and West Himalayan Kush (Afghani).
The ultimate feel-good strain, Red Dragon, has a powerful kick that sends waves of euphoric feeling and sensation, once it creeps in. Seasoned users note its effects starting sooner, rather than later. This means that novice users should be wary of the amount they consume.
How would you feel once you use the Red Dragon? It begins with a sense of pulsating waves of euphoria. This in turns leads to a general relaxation as you begin to let go of the stress and pressures of daily life. For some users, this strain causes them to feel energetic and may feel hyperactive. The overall good feeling does last quite a while, which makes this a great mood-enhancing cannabis strain.
But there is one thing that keeps this from being a dominant strain. One thing you should be aware of is that anyone who is predisposed to depression should avoid the Red Dragon. One of its adverse reaction is paranoia.
Red Dragon comes with a pleasant aroma that smells sweet and pungent with a strong hint of pine. This is one strain that most people find agreeable.
While many strains taste different from how it smells, that is not the case with Red Dragon. Imagine how it smells, and add a slightly bitter aftertaste, that is how it tastes.
One of the main things that keep the Red Dragon from being a dominant strain is its adverse reaction to paranoia. It can make the condition worse in individuals with this pre-existing condition.
Therefore, people suffering from depression should avoid consuming this strain of weed. Moreover, the low CBD content of this strain makes it less effective in treating seizures and other medical conditions that require this chemical.
Another common negative effect of taking this strain of cannabis is having a dry mouth and dry eyes. However, this is a common effect among all other strains.
Taking a lot of water before and during your wake and bake session is very important to prevent this from happening. This strain isn’t for every individual and one should use it at their discretion.
As a medical cannabis, the Red Dragon is a great strain to help you deal with anxiety issues including depression and PTSD. It is ironic to think that the biggest medical benefit of this strain might also worsen. Caution is required if you are using this strain.
Although it is not its biggest strength, Red Dragon seems to improve one’s appetite. And for those who are having trouble sleeping, this strain might help you sleep better. Because of this characteristic, Red Dragon is recommended for night time use.
The other use of Red Dragon as a medical cannabis is in managing mild pains. If you need a strain to deal with chronic pain, this is not the right strain for you. There are others that are far better suited for pain management.
This exotic flower has so much to bring to the table and for the right user, this just might be your next favorite. The fruity sweet aromas and truly one of a kind guava flavor of Red Dragon will have you coming back time and time again.
