This high CBD Indica-heavy cross is named for the famous evil clown in Stephen King’s novel “It”. And it IS a killer – of pain and anxiety. Pennywise has an unusually high CBD content that can top 12%. It has a sativa-indica ratio of roughly 30:70. Pennywise is a favorite of medical users and practitioners, and is highly recommended for disorders where CBD is recommended. It has a sedating effect and is most often recommended for nighttime use and for those experienced in cannabis effects.
This unique high-CBD indica is a cross between Jack the Ripper and Harlequin, which may be the inspiration for its namesake. Pennywise is interesting to grow because each plant can express itself in one of 4 phenotypes. But while bud structure or color may differ, the CBD potency remains the same. Pennywise can thrive in an indoor or outdoor grow. Resistance to mildew makes it a good beginners’ strain, and Pennywise can yield 16 ounces or more per plant.
Pennywise has an enticing and exotic aroma. Its pungent fruity smoke is distinctively lemon, with notes of wood and a peppery, coffee-tinged flavor.
Because Pennywise can express itself in 4 phenotypes, it’s quite fun! Buds can be round, or fingerlike. Within them a jungle of orange hairs nestle amidst olive green and a bright trichromes.
The high CBD content of Pennywise makes it a therapeutic choice for arthritis, PTSD, epilepsy, neurological disorders, and cancer symptoms. Psychoactive effects are mild, but the famous cerebral effects of Pennywise’s sativa parents mean users often report feeling calmer and more focused. Inexperienced users may experience dizziness with Pennywise however, and “couch lock” is common with this strain. Pennywise is also helpful for those with trouble sleeping due to anxiety or pain.
