Being a ginger isn’t a bad thing, just take one look at this strain when she’s in flowering and you’ll instantly fall in love with her abundance of burnt orange hairs that are drenched in dewy-sticky trichomes.
Papaya just doesn’t look gorgeous but also delivers one of the most unique aromas and flavors around. She does, of course, taste like the fruit itself and her smell completely holds up to her namesake, but when you exhale her, sit back and enjoy a fine peppery spiciness that cools the high sweet notes making for one enjoyable smoke session.
The high that follows is a brilliant balance between an energetic sativa head high that’s rich in euphoria, mixed with a full-body numbing relaxation and a general feeling of ease that indica strains love to create. She’s big in the medical marijuana community and helps those that suffer from stress, pain, cramps, insomnia, inflammation, and lack of appetite. That might seem like a lot for one plant, but it’s all due to her balanced ratio of THC and CBD.
Our tip for this strain: Despite her heavy, dense colas, Papaya doesn’t produce the thickest stems and branches. So, you’ll probably want to use your best technique for growing thicker stems. We recommend a little extra potassium, especially if you’re growing in hydro or an inert medium like coco coir. You’re favorite nute supplier most likely carries their own version of potassium.
What we love about this strain: Flavor! Flavor! Flavor! Papaya is one of our favorites with her tropical mango notes and peppery undertones. This combined with her gingery buds and hybrid high makes her a showcase in dispensaries all over. Oh and did we say that she’s averages around 20% THC and has been recorded at 25%!
Quote from a customer: “The flavor was hashy/fruity and the high was very, very strong and lasted about 2 and a half to 3 hours.I grew in 10 gallon cloth pots under full-spectrum LED and got huge, juicy and juice dripping bud, the main cola looking like a giant pinecone. It was in for just under 2 months veg and was one of the easiest plants I have ever grown.” David D.
