Hippie Crasher is an indica-dominant, hybrid Cannabis strain with a diverse genetic lineage and a reputation for its powerful effects – known for inducing a deep sense of relaxation while still allowing for mental clarity and focus. And the batch produced by Trulieve this month is a testament to just how potent this cultivar can be.
The exact genetic origins of Hippie Crasher are debatable, but it is most likely a cross between Wedding Cake x Kush Mints – two iconic cultivars. This parentage suggests that Hippie Crasher inherits its indica dominance and calming properties from the heavier Wedding Cake profile, while Kush Mints contributes its distinctive flavor and therapeutic effects.
One of the standout features of Hippie Crasher is its high-THC content – in our case almost 30% – making this an excellent candidate for the high-potency consumers out there. Novice consumers can always consume less and save more money when utilizing such a variety – and who doesn’t like to save some money while experiencing a spectacular high?
The effects of Hippie Crasher are deeply relaxing in a way that provides a sense of tranquility and calm. The top of the experience is marked by a clear cerebral euphoria that gradually melts into a full-body relaxation due to its abundance of limonene, tempered with the heavier terpenes on the spectrum. This strain is reported to have sedating qualities that can lead to a couchlock effect – making it an ideal choice for evening or nighttime use when relaxation and unwinding are desired. It is also worth noting that Hippie Crasher may induce a case of the munchies, as it definitely had me raiding my fridge before bed.
In terms of smell and flavor, Hippie Crasher has a sweet and fruity profile – often described as reminiscent of grape candy or berries that blends elegantly with a distinct cookie-mint aroma. The taste reflects its smell, with a smooth and sweet combination that adds to the overall experience and excellent mouthfeel on the toke. The olfactory and gustatory delight induced by Trulieve’s Hippie Crasher buds is absolutely next level.
With its high-THC content and sedating effects, Hippie Crasher is a great strain for experienced users looking for a deep sense of relaxation. Its sweet and fruity aroma, coupled with potentially medicinal benefits, makes it an attractive option for those seeking relief from stress, anxiety or chronic pain. However, it’s important for novices to approach this strain with caution – the Hippie Crasher has a potent reputation for a reason.
