Thunderbird Rose is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through crossing the classic favorite Blue Dream and OG Kush strains. This super rare strain is said to be bred by Kotton for Rebel Spirit Cannabis of Eugene, Oregon.
Because it is a rare species of cannabis, studies around it are very limited and hence not too much is known about it in terms of potency and medical abilities. However, it is said to have a moderate tetra cannabinol (THC) level of about 10-15% on average. This allows it to have a reasonable level of psych activity.
The most distinct feature of thunderbird rose are its pronounced large lime green buds that express engorged trichome-covered calyxes and crimson pistils. The additional rose to the name “thunderbird rose” strain is a resonance of the flavor it gives off on exhale. The strain also has a notable delicious berry diesel taste that gives off dreamy relaxing effect.
The smell is of fresh florals and lemons with an overtone of rich berries and earth that can overpower the rose scent at times. For the medical cannabis patients looking to grow their own Thunderbird Rose need not to worry as this generous producer has a healthy resistance to mold and pests. This makes it perfect for both indoor and outdoor growing.
The aroma is floral with notes of deep green forest, fuel, and blueberry. In America, Thunderbird Rose cannabis strain is available in medical marijuana dispensaries most of the states.
