This hybrid strain is Sativa-dominant. One of its most unique features is its interesting aroma, which is reminiscent of lime sherbet or lime soda. In that sense this strain is similar to Dutch Treat or Jeck Herer, which can have a lemon-lime aroma. The citrusy smell of Chernobyl comes from its rich terpene profile. The taste of this strain is a lot like what you’d expect based on the smell. You’ll certainly notice that citrusy flavor that lingers.
TGA Genetics was the first to breed the Chernobyl strain from Jack the Ripper, Trainwreck, and Trinity strains. As a result, you can expect high amounts of resin and effects that are both mentally and emotionally calming and heavy-hitting enough to soothe physical pain. In fact, for a Sativa-dominant strain, this is a great option for treating pain.
This is a go-to strain with its powerful terpene profile for medical marijuana patients in search of treating a variety of mental disorders. Anxiety, chronic stress, depression, mood disorders, and PTSD are all common ailments that users of this strain report success with.
And thanks to the Indica remnants the strain retains, probably from its Trainwreck lineage, this strain is also a titan when it comes to pain relief. Patients also use Chernobyl for treating conditions with symptoms such as digestive issues, muscle aches, nausea, nerve pain, ocular pressure, some seizures, and tremors.
This is a fairly potent strain, so if you’re new to it take it slow. Give the entire high a chance to catch up to you. Strains with dual calming and heavy-hitting effects take their time and come in waves.
