This beautiful plant got its name from its thick layer of trichomes that make it appear as if it is covered by a blanket of ice and snow. Permafrost is a sativa-dominant hybrid of two celebrated strains. It became popular for its strong cerebral high and body relaxation.
It is suited for day time use because it still allows you to get your tasks done and be active. It is a mood booster that is suited for daily activity or social gatherings. Get ready to be in your best mood and let it take away the negative vibes for a sunny and carefree day.
Rogue Buds created Permafrost, a spawn of two very famous and powerful strains. Its mother, Trainwreck, is known to be a mind-bending sativa that hits like, well, a train. Its father, White Widow, is a balanced hybrid that has been a Dutch coffee shop staple since the 90s. The blend of these two legendary strains created a crossbreed that combined the best features of its parent strains.
Fans of the strain describe the high as a focused relaxation which is understandable from its genetic ratio of 70% sativa and 30% indica. The mellow high that is suited for many needs including mood irregularities have put the spotlight back on sativas in the current market that is dominated mainly by indicas.
The trichomes covering the leaves make it look like the Permafrost plant is crystalline. Its sugar-coated leaves are actually dark green underneath with copper-toned pistils. The large buds are green and the trichomes give the whole plant a beautiful brilliance.
Permafrost’s aroma will take you to a lush pine and cedar forest. It is very herbal and earthy with undertones of spice. When you light it up, the more you’ll smell the pine scent that is both refreshing and uplifting.
Its flavor is primarily pine with a woodsy taste. When you exhale, a sweet taste lingers on the tongue and palate. It is a multidimensional taste and aroma that some people are not a fan of. But while they may not appreciate the facets of its scent and flavor, they willingly let it pass because they recognize the effect they know they’ll get from the strain.
