Is Chem Sativa Or Indica?

It’s a legendary strain with a long and complex history dating back to the early 1990s. She’s a connoisseur’s favorite because of her complex aroma and strong effects. Chem strain has a piney aroma that’s not overpowering, with hints of citrus and sandalwood. The flavor is earthy, with notes of pine and pepper that give way to a sweet finish. It’s also known for being very potent, which means you don’t need a ton to get the job done. Easy to find on dispensary shelves due to its popularity on the west coast particularly in Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco .

Chem Strain Effects:

The high from this bud comes on quick with an almost immediate cerebral head rush and can often be felt behind the eyes or in the temples. This is followed by an uplifting buzz that leaves you feeling clear-headed and focused. As this effect builds, you will start to feel your muscles loosen up, relieving any tension or stress without leaving you feeling too sedated or sleepy. As the high continues, you may feel the urge to become introspective as the body buzz intensifies, leaving your limbs feeling heavy and immovable. You may find yourself feeling couch-locked at this point in physical relaxation, so make sure you have plenty of snacks and entertainment on hand before smoking this strain. Dry eyes and dry mouth are negative side effect so have some eye drops and drinks ready.


A calming body high that relaxes muscles while also enhancing creativity and energy levels. Thai sativa is a good choice for patients with anti inflammatory conditions, chronic pain or muscle spasms because it eases physical discomfort.
