El Chapo is a hard hitting indica strain named after the notorious Mexican drug lord. It first originated in London, England through famed cannabis breeders Sour Genetics as a cross between Sour Diesel IBL and Headbanger BX, and is now one of the most sought after strains around the world. With a THC content of up to 23%, it’s a beautifully strong marijuana strain. El Chapo users will love the fast-acting, relaxing, heavy high.
Appearance, Aroma, and Flavour
El Chapo has a very notable appearance. The buds are a beautiful jade green colour and densely packed, shaped like popcorn buds. They’re covered in a sheen of orange hairs and just barely noticeable light orange trichomes. The tase of the bud is equally notable, with a sweet and citrusy flavour that has delicious citrus undertones with the classic marijuana flavour. The aroma also has that classic marijuana smell, along with some citrusy sweetness.
Effects and Medical Uses
El Chapo’s high is far from mild. When first smoked, the user is quickly hit with a very strong mood-boosting state that sends them skyrocketing into euphoria. The long-lasting high eventually drops into a heavy relaxation, encouraging sleepiness and relief from the tensions of the day. With its high intensity and relaxing qualities, El Chapo is a great remedy for anxiety, depression, stress, pain, and insomnia.
