One thing is for sure, the solar power hybrid strain puts the green in green living. 

A phenotype of the award-winning Sour Kush, the Solar Power strain is known for its commanding flavour profile, uplifting effects, and pain relief properties. All of these characteristics make Solar Power one of the most dynamic strains that Smokey’s has in store. 

Truly a well-rounded choice, the pungent Solar Power is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% sativa, 50% indica) that has a crisp, lemony, and earthy-pine aroma with an energizing overtone and a lip-smacking taste. This strain is as attractive as it tastes, characterized by dense, vibrant green and yellow buds with golden undertones covered with amber pistils and frosty trichomes. Its THC content ranges between 19% and 25%, giving tokers a punchy, mood-lifting buzz.

A Brief History of Solar Power Strain

The legalization of recreational cannabis paved the way for more assuasive laws on growing your own cannabis plants, but it wasn’t the same for medical marijuana patients a decade ago. At that time, registered patients were prohibited to grow at home, but as North American advocates lobbied for more lenient laws on medical marijuana, patients were able to donate their experiments to local breeders and cultivators.

One of these home experiments was the Sour Kush, a clone donation by a patient registered in Battleboro, North Carolina. Sour OG’s phenotype is the Solar Power strain, with most enthusiasts commonly linking these two as a similar strain. The high THC content of the Solar Power strain comes from its remarkable parents, Sour Diesel and OG Kush. This true hybrid has a distinguished terpene profile that includes limonene, linalool, and beta-pinene, resulting in a tangy, citrusy inhale. 

Canadian consumer cannabis brand, Symbl, worked hard to fine-tune the Solar Power strain, making it ideal for day-to-day consumption for the seasoned toker. The company has something to be proud of, as labs that analyzed the phenotype revealed that the strain contained the most terpenes – hence making it one of the most flavourful and aromatic strains on the market today. 

The Effects of Solar Power Strain

The equal balance of sativa and indica content of Solar Power creates a mildly energizing high that will motivate you for a day’s work, rather than keep you locked on the couch. Users reported a “lifted sense” as soon as the exhalation, activating the mind and filling the body with a heady elation. 

The euphoric-yet-functional sensation spreads its way throughout the limbs and will make you want to move around with excitement in your bones. Consumers note this strain for its pain relief properties without the overwhelming sedative effect. Aside from the giggly and euphoric feeling users get, Solar Power offers a deep physical relaxation that’s mixed with a rushing of ideas and creativity.

Cultivating the Solar Power Hybrid Strain

The Solar Power hybrid strain falls under the moderate level of cultivation and was produced by crossing Sour Diesel and OG Kush. The strain is grown indoors, in either soil or hydroponics to keep its health at an optimum level. 

The Solar Power strain grows well with a lot of training, so the buds are kept exposed to sunlight as they yield high. Its natural bud structure allows the strain to tolerate humidity, lessening the chances of mould formation. With a temperature between 20 and 26 C, the plant will start to flower after seven to nine weeks for a moderate yield.

Expect to grow dense buds, even in indoor climates that have some moisture. A basic, regular feeding regimen of pH Perfect Sensi Grow A & B, and B-52 supplements should keep the Solar Power happy and thriving throughout its life cycle.
