Like face planting in a bed of fresh flowers, berries, and fruit, the Sweet Tooth hemp strain astounds with its dynamic flavor. As though fusing together all of the sweetest treats in the known hemp world, the Sweet Tooth herb might just be the perfect introduction to the plant especially if you don’t tolerate strong, offensive flavors and aromas too well.
Perfectly balanced with effects that sit right smack dab in the center of the indica-sativa spectrum, the Sweet Tooth herb is often glorified as the best starter strain for rookies who are only just discovering the wonderful world of hemp. Its likeable flavor, sweet aroma, and well-rounded impact make sure that you’ll enjoy every drag. No wonder it won the Cannabis Cup in 2001.
The Origins of the Sweet Tooth Strain
There’s something magical about the untouched, unspoiled genetics of a landrace. Brandishing a profile that’s free from the meddling intervention of human preferences, landrace strains bring you as close to nature as possible. And with the genetic power of three phenomenal landraces from various parts of the globe, the Sweet Tooth strain has cemented itself as an herb with potent ancestry.
Taking properties from strains native to Nepal, Afghanistan, and Hawaii, the Sweet Tooth cultivar is balanced out by the trifecta of its ancestors’ genetics. The first – the Nepalese landrace – is a relatively balanced strain that sits slightly towards the sativa side. It contributes its sweet fruity flavor to the mix, and lends a gentle euphoria.
The next is the Hawaiian landrace. Heavily drenched in sativa genetics, the Hawaiian strain is popular for its fruit-scented leaves that shine through with sweet freshness and delectable flavor. And of course, to balance out its sativa properties is the Afghani. Its aroma can be likened to a sweet, perfectly steeped chamomile tea that soothes the mind, body, and soul.
Aroma and Appearance
The Sweet Tooth herb comes in average sized nugs that are rounded and dense. The tightly packed clusters come in a wide range of colors, depending on the specific phenotype you’ve bagged. But for the most part, the sweet strain showcases a mixture of green hues – from forest, to moss, to avocado, and lime. In some cases, Sweet Tooth samples can tout splashes of purple or blue here and there, allowing a more lively and electrifying aesthetic.
Two added elements make the hemp strain even more attention grabbing. The first is its web of hairy tendrils which cage the herb in an intricate matrix of blonde hair. The second is its fluffy coat of trichomes that make it look like it was ripped right out of a poodle’s *sshole.
If its look doesn’t seal the sale for you, then it’s aroma just might. If there’s anything special about the Sweet Tooth strain, it’s the herbs insane fragrance. Mixing together citrus like lemon, orange, and grapefruit, with the sweetness of grape, chocolate, and nectar, the Sweet Tooth strain is a surefire hit for discriminating connoisseurs who want nothing but heavenly flavor gracing their taste buds.
Experience and Effects
Wouldn’t it be a total downer if a strain named ‘Sweet Tooth’ didn’t live up to the expectations it set? Good thing that isn’t the story with this honest herb. Just like its fragrance, the Sweet Tooth strain delivers an exotic blend of fruity flavors, ranging from tropical to temperature fruits, and even mixing in chocolate and pastry dough. The swirling blend of sweet notes is delicately underlined by a steady gasoline undertone, rounding off the edges and adding dimension to the overall flavor profile.
The perfectly balanced effects aren’t what you would call hard-hitting or heavy-handed. In fact, the Sweet Tooth’s impact can be hardly felt at first. It’s only when the hemp reaches its crescendo that you’ll actually notice how it changed your system. Lending a controlled euphoria, the strain uplifts both mind and body, releasing discomfort and plowing away the stress of daily life. Overall, you should feel calm, collected, and balanced, neither intoxicated nor tranquilized by the herb’s effects.
Growing and Processing
Easy to bring to maturity, the Sweet Tooth hemp strain grows to a modest height, and produces a high average yield compared to its peers. The 3 to 6-foot shrubs produce 6 ounces of bud for every foot of its height, and its compact nugs are made possible by the plant’s high calyx-to-leaf ratio. Farmers should wait around 55 days from seed to harvest, which puts the strain in the league of fast finishers.
If you’re in the market in search of a hemp strain for wholesale or post-production, then the Sweet Tooth strain might be right up your alley. Easy to grow and fast to finish, the herb’s genetics make it possible for farmers to cash in on their time and effort within the soonest possible time. For CBD products like oils, tinctures, skincare products, and edibles, Sweet Tooth’s impressive chemistry promises to reflect the full potential of cannabinoids in your finished product.
Who Is It For?
Ideal for rookies and low tolerance users, the Sweet Tooth cultivar’s likeable flavor, aroma, and effects promise that no newbie will be negatively overwhelmed. Its perfectly well-rounded impact balances out the two ends of the hemp spectrum, letting you enjoy little sativa and a little indica in one flavor-packed experience. Nonetheless, even veterans and purists can find the Sweet Tooth strain to be particularly pleasing, if not for its basic effects, then for its incredible flavor.
Sweet Tooth’s quick turnaround and non-specific growing requirements put it on the list of the best strains for beginner farmers. But more than that, the strain proves to be a suitable choice for cultivators looking to make a quick buck off of a fast-growing strain that doesn’t sacrifice quality. CBD product manufacturers can also benefit from gardening their own batch of Sweet Tooth, especially because of its balanced chemistry.
