Everything You Need To Know About The Smarties Strain

Smarties Strain Effects

Some of the reported effects of Smarties include:

  • Calming
  • Euphoric
  • Creative
  • Talkative
  • Happy
  • Body high
  • Giggly
  • Tingly

Here’s how we like to describe Smarties strain effects:

The Smarties high starts out with a tingly feeling that develops into a sense of total calm and sociable relaxation. You’ll be happily couch-locked, but not feeling completely sedated, and ready to chat the day away, without feeling like your head is in the clouds.

With a super high THC level, the euphoric Smarties strain is perfect for use as medical marijuana and ideal for daytime toking.

Things to Do While Enjoying Smarties Strain

While you may feel an immediate burst of energy (thanks, Sativa!), the eventual euphoria of the Smarties strain will have you feeling body high and totally relaxed.

It’s best not to plan anything too ambitious, as your couch or a hammock will be calling to you soon enough. Creative types may find themselves engaging in their craft, while sociable people will likely prefer to chat, play video games, or grab a movie with friends.

Based on the overall calming effects of the Indica dominant Smarties strain, most people choose to avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise or physical labor — but, as always, you do you!

When under the influence of marijuana, including the Smarties strain, it’s not recommended that you drive or operate heavy machinery.

Smarties Strain Terpenes

Terpenes are what drive experience and richness in flavor, and next to the strain, terpenes are the determining factor in the type of high you can expect from cannabis.

The dominant terpenes in Smarties are:

  • Limonene – strong citrus and bitter taste
  • Caryophyllene – Rich spicy odor, pepper, spicy
  • Pinene – sage and blueberry
  • Pulegone – chemical

These terpenes give Smarties the flavor and aroma that it’s famous for. With hints of blueberries and citrus, the palate is tangy, sweet, and a little tart.

The aroma, similar to candy, is pungent and fruity with an earthly overtone that is a favorite among anyone who takes a toke.

Some other terpenes (only present in small amounts) in Smarties strain, are:

  • Beta-Pinene – pine, green, woody
  • Alpha-Pinene – zest, crisp, pine
  • Terpinolene – pine, floral, herbal
