Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 17% – 20%
Diary Queen is a hybrid strain that has a lot to offer in its small package. Packing up to 21% THC, this is a strain that includes relaxation without being sedated. It has a very unique – and potent, smell, which is something like a cross between cherries and cheese. Crossbred with Cheese and Space Queen, it can have different appearances due to the fact that it has up to three different compositions. It generally leaves its smokers with a feeling of euphoria, laziness and sleepiness. Some of the downsides of this strain is dry mouth, dry eye’s and dizziness. Also, due to the potency of the aroma of the plant, it’s not very good to carry around on you if you’re trying to be low key. It’s used medically for anxiety, stress, pain, insomnia, and depression. Dairy Queen plants are bushy and can grow up to 120 cm tall, generally having a sticky resin coating the buds.
Dairy Queen hits smokers relatively quickly, creating some changes in perception. External stimuli can take on a new dimension and seem more interesting than they otherwise might. In addition to this sensory distortion, smokers may detect some increased mental stimulation, resulting in freely-associative patterns of thought. This mindset comes without any of the disorienting effects that come with stronger, more cerebral strains, and allows users to remain lucid and able to work or converse. As time wears on, a mild sense of physical relaxation creeps in. The slow meld of mental and physical effects can be good for certain kinds of exercise and, notably, sex. In more low-energy situations, Dairy Queen is great for simply zoning out after a long day. It can be solo and introspective or buzzy and social. Beware, though, that as dosage increases, so does the likelihood of couchlock. Because it is so versatile, Dairy Queen is as appropriate for waking-and-baking as it is for enjoying as a bedtime treat.
Dairy Queen can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its tendency to instill focus and concentration may be of use to those with attention deficit disorders. The strain’s mood-elevating effects can also ease the difficult symptoms of stress and depression, helping the afflicted to spend their time more presently and consciously. Physiologically, this bud may offers some degree of relief from deep-seated aches and pains or from everyday irritations like headaches. Because its high does not often lead to paranoid, recursive thinking, Dairy Queen is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
TGA Subcool sells seeds of Dairy Queen through several online retailers. Once obtained, it can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a semi-humid climate with consistent daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Dairy Queen’s plants grow short and bushy and can easily be accommodated in indoor grow spaces. Growers should take time to “top” their crops, trimming away leaves that might block light and air from reaching any low-growing flowering nodes. This strain flowers within 7 to 8 weeks when grown indoors. Additionally, just as it is a pungent smoke, this bud can be a very smell crop to grow; those looking to keep their growing operations under wraps should invest in odor control measures like carbon air filters or exhaust fans.
The Dairy Queen marijuana strain smells as one might expect given its origins. It has a cheesy and creamy scent with hints of cherry and vanilla, along with a skunky smell to let you know it is weed.
Dairy Queen has an enjoyable cherry and vanilla taste. The combination of sweetness and creaminess is lovely on the palate, and you may also get hints of pine. Some users claim its taste is akin to a fruity cheesecake.
Once again, Dairy Queen meets expectations in this category. The strain comes from resinous parents, so it is no surprise that DQ’s flowers are coated with trichomes. When this plant is ready for harvest, it is aesthetically stunning as the white of the trichomes and the bright orange of the pistils stand out against a lime green background.
You might find that this strain feels dry to the touch. Don’t worry! As long as it is properly cured and dried, it will produce a LOT of resin.
Dairy Queen Strain Grow Info
Once you have Dairy Queen seeds, you’ll find that it is an easy strain to cultivate. In fact, it is so novice-friendly that it makes for the ideal first grow. It has a significant resistance to pests and diseases, and you have the option of growing indoors or outdoors.
If you decide to grow DQ outside, it prefers a cooler climate. Typically, weed needs a warmer, Mediterranean climate, but Dairy Queen’s resilience opens the door for novices in colder locations to try and grow it. However, make sure the plants are not exposed to frost and plant them in a location where they will get as much sunlight as possible. DQ offers a yield of up to 16 ounces per plant.
Indoor growers should consider using the Sea of Green (SOG) method to increase yield. You have the option of using soil as your growing medium or going down the hydroponics route and using Rockwool cubes or coco coir. Each option has its pros and cons. For novices, it is probably best to use high-quality organic soil. It contains all the nutrients you need and reduces the work you have to put in.
A hydroponics setup is better for experienced growers because you have to take careful notes of the nutrients you use. Dairy Queen takes 7-8 weeks to flower and has a yield of up to 16 ounces per square meter planted. As a rule of thumb, you can expect 12-16 ounces per 1,000-Watt HPS light you use.
Potential Effects of Dairy Queen
Using Dairy Queen has multiple effects and depends on the dosage and level. Both novice smokers and regular users will feel the euphoric effects. But even for an expert, low dosage is still recommended.
Beginners who use high dosages will find themselves sedated and couch locked. Maybe the need to take a nap. Regular users find themselves just on the relaxed side. More easy-going and talkative. During this time, people will find themselves looking for a creative outlet.
Potential Negative Effects of Dairy Queen
Like many strains, the effects of smoking Dairy Queen can cause dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, and headaches. Because of its potent combination, if this strain is burned too long, you may find yourself with a stinging feeling in your sinuses.
