Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 90% Sativa / 10% Indica. THC: 19% – 24%
Stevie Wonder is a heavily sativa dominant hybrid (90% sativa/10% indica) strain created by breeders at the infamous Bodhi Seeds farms as a potent cross between the insanely popular Sensi Star X Trainwreck X Blueberry X Bubba Kush strains. This dank bud boasts a wide average THC level ranging from 19-24%. Users describe the Stevie Wonder high as an immediate onset of a cerebral head high felt in the eyes and temples, leaving your eyes droopy, red, and very dry. This cerebral head high is very sharp yet somehow relaxing with your energy levels slowly ebbing in and out. Due to these potent effects, Stevie Wonder is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic pain due to injury or illness, stress, muscle spasms, and nerve damage. Stevie Wonder has a delicious aroma of earthy orange pine with a hint of diesel and a taste of orange pine with an earthy diesel exhale. Stevie Wonder buds have oversized dense frosty nugs athat are sage green with patches of dark olive green. These nugs are covered with a spattering of light colored rich amber hairs and a caked-on layer of crystal white trichomes and resin.
Stevie Wonder is a sativa-leaning hybrid with an impressive genetic lineage. The brainchild of prolific growers Bodhi Seeds, this bud has Trainwreck, Sensi Star, Bubba Kush, and Blueberry in its background. Besides a thoroughly well-balanced high, Stevie Wonder comes with a musky, complex flavor profile that is somewhat similar to that of perennial favorite Jack Herer. Stevie Wonder’s THC content has been measured at between 16% and 24%.
Despite their excellent aroma and psychoactive properties, Stevie Wonder’s flowers are visually underwhelming. The buds are on the small side and adhere in a tapered, spade-like formation. These flowers have relatively fluffy leaves that tend to twist outward from their central stems. The leaves are a dark shade of forest green and are twisted through with curly orange and brown pistils. Translucent white trichomes cover these nuggets, making them very difficult to break up without the help of a quality grinder.
Stevie Wonder’s flowers give off a strong impression of woodsy pine on first inspection. Taking another whiff reveals a bright citrus scent lurking underneath. Meanwhile, grinding up these tiny buds yields a dank and earthy spice that pays tribute to the strain’s Kush backbone. When burnt, Stevie Wonder gives off a surprisingly smooth and easily ingested smoke. This smoke tastes like pine and orange on the exhale.
Stevie Wonder tends to take action right away, hitting smokers with a head rush and a subtle buzz just as they may be marveling at its thick, tasty smoke. Besides odd physical phenomena like an increased blood pressure around the eyes and temples, users may be endowed with a newfound confidence and motivation. This boost may take the form of cerebral focus, in which certain ideas or concepts may take on a new intensity and resonance. Stevie Wonder may also provoke a chain reaction of freely-associative thoughts, making it a good catalyst for open-ended brainstorming. As time passes, Stevie Wonder’s more relaxing vibes tend to kick in. Consumers may feel their limbs and eyelids weighed down as their extremities begin to tingle. Previously active users may want to seek out comfortable surroundings where they can take a load off. While still allowing for mental engagement, Stevie Wonder may strip its smokers of some prior motivation, making it a great way to keep energy high in social situations. This bud’s backend can also be a fun way to enhance your media intake, whether you’re listening to a spacey, atmospheric playlist or watching a trippy movie. As dosage is increased, already-susceptible users may be incapacitated by couchlock and content to let the outside world recede into the background. Because of its slow taper down in energy, Stevie Wonder is recommended for late afternoon to evening use.
Stevie Wonder’s versatile effects give it a whole range of uses for medical cannabis patients. Its early sense of concentration can help those with attention deficit disorders to focus on single tasks. The strain’s generally uplift in mood can also temporarily take the edge off of mild to moderate cases of stress and depression. Physiologically speaking, Stevie Wonder may relieve temporary, injury-related pain as well as chronic aches due to serious diseases. Anti-inflammatory properties can also take care of everyday irritations like headaches. Because it comes with a heady dose of cerebral introspection, Stevie Wonder is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia or who have a low THC tolerance.
Pending stock levels, seeds of Stevie Wonder are available for sale online. Once obtained, the bud can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor cultivation requires a semi-humid climate with temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Plants are typically of a medium height and may require gardeners to occasionally trim away their broad fan leaves in order to encourage the flowering of any low-growing nodes. Stevie Wonder flowers within 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors.
Although Stevie Wonder himself has professed a distaste for cannabis — the music legend claims to have hated it after trying it once at age 21 — we think this well-balanced strain is definitely worth a try. Now if only we could get a nice indica-dominant hybrid named after rock and roll queen Stevie Nicks!
