The name Dr. Who might ring a bell if you are into science fiction. Well, if it doesn’t, this strain borrows its name from a once-popular BBC sci-fi show called Dr. Who. This is an indica dominant hybrid strain with dizzying highs of THC that may get to 30%. It was originally bred by Homegrown Natural and is a cross between the Sativa leaning Trainwreck strain and Indica leaning Mad Scientist.
Dr. Who has typical indica features spotting dense buds mounted onto a short and wide structure. The leaves are mossy green and may occasionally spot some anthocyanin-loaded purple hues. Cannabis lovers adore the royalty that comes with this unique color, and some confess that the high from this strain is inexplicable. The buds are sticky to the touch because of the dense coating of colorless trichomes. As the buds mature, the trichomes turn snowy and become difficult to break by hand.
Dr. Who smells of fresh earth when the buds are freshly harvested. If stored well, you will enjoy this earthy freshness as you inhale your meds. On the exhale, you may be able to pick some lemon scents from limonene present in the strain. When properly cured, the smoke from this strain should be gentle and will not trigger coughing bouts. The taste is a mix of earthiness with some berry noted that will linger in your mouth. Strains with high anthocyanin levels may have a stronger grape-like taste than the rest.
The effects caused by this strain range from moderate to severely intense. Newer patients are likely to get swept away by the cerebral high that makes one feel like they are floating in outer space. The high sets in slowly, which fools many patients into believing that the effects are mild. As a caution, take the start-slow-go-slow approach for this strain.
As the heady effects progress you are likely to start feeling lethargic and be tempted to take a horizontal position. This will also come with strong hunger pangs that will force you to stock up. With a full belly, you will soon be on your way to slumberland. As you can guess, this is not a strain to take in the morning if at all you intend on having an active day.
Dr. Who is great for medicating stubborn pain. The head and body buzz numbs pain spots and creates deep relaxation, giving you a break from chronic discomfort. Patients with fibromyalgia and migraines have reported improvements after using this strain. Dr. Who can also be used to tackle social anxiety by reducing social inhibitions and freeing one from obsessive self-consciousness.
This strain can be cultivated both indoors and outdoors. It is highly resistant to mildew but would need consistent temperatures between 70F-80F.
