Gary Payton is an extremely popular evenly balanced 50/50 hybrid cannabis strain. Named after NBA player Gary Payton, the strain is known for its flavours, potency and high THC percentage. Gary Payton was created as a collaboration between Powerzzz Genetics and Cookies, both highly admired cannabis producers. Because of its potency, Gary Payton is best enjoyed by experienced weed users, or in small doses by beginners.
Appearance, Aroma, and Flavour
Gary Payton is a very distinctive looking strain. The buds are a medium green that is almost overtaken by its covering of bright orange hairs. The bud is moderately dense and sticky. The flavour is just as potent as its effect, with a fruity, apricot flavour that is accompanied by an equally strong taste of herbs and spice. The aroma is notably earthy, with undertones of its apricot taste.
Effects and Medical Uses
Gary Payton is a true 50/50 hybrid strain, with both strong head and body effects. Users will first notice a potent euphoria that causes episodes of the giggles and increased talkativeness. As the high sets in, the body becomes enjoyably relaxed, with occasional couch-lock setting in for beginners. The strain is great for those suffering with a low mood, depression, anxiety, or chronic pain. It’s also a great strain for social situations as it helps reduce social anxiety.
