Flowers for Algernon is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through the crossing of the infamous Sour Diesel x Mask strains. This powerhouse rarity is named for the classic book and its happy and uplifted effects. The Flowers for Algernon high is characterized by a relaxed and happy state that’s ideal for social situations. It starts with an uplifted head buzz that leaves you motivated and focused with a slight sense of energy. You’ll feel incredibly creative and ready to tackle any task at hand.
This is accompanied by a mellow body buzz that serves to calm and relax any pain you may be feeling as well as a motivated social state that leaves you incredibly talkative and outgoing. These effects and its insanely high THC level that typically falls between 17-25% on average makes Flowers for Algernon the perfect bud for treating conditions such as chronic headaches, muscle spasms, lack of appetite, nausea, and insomnia.
This bud has long and lumpy dense pepper-shaped forest green nugs with fiery orange hairs and a super sticky coating of visible syrupy resin. Flowers for Algernon has a sweet scent of lemony pine with a hint of diesel and mint that’s released as the nugs are broken apart.
The flavor is very much the same, with a pungent diesel taste that is sharply accented by minty pine.
