Butterscotch is an indica dominant hybrid strain (70% indica/30% sativa) created through an unknown combination of other hybrid strains. Although its exact parentage is kept a closely guarded secret by its breeders, Butterscotch is a favorite of both patients and breeders for its soothing effects and super mouthwatering flavor.
Like its name suggests, Butterscotch has a taste much like your favorite creamy butterscotch candy, with a sugary caramel and vanilla overtone and just a touch of sour citrus. The aroma is similar, although it does have a twist of pungency to it, too, that pops up as the nugs are broken apart and burned away. The Butterscotch high hits you a few minutes after your final exhale, filling your mind with a slowly building sense of tingly euphoria.
This tingle is pretty hazy, pushing out any sort of thoughts or emotions and replacing them with pure blissful nothingness. A relaxing body high comes next, washing over you and leaving you feeling super calm from head to toe. This combination can quickly turn sedative, ending in a long and peaceful sleep.
With these effects and its high 18-20% average THC level, Butterscotch is often chosen to treat conditions such as chronic stress, insomnia, chronic pain, depression, nightmares and appetite loss or nausea. This bud has long oversized minty green pepper-shaped nugs with thin orange hairs and a coating of golden-tinted white crystal trichomes.
