Dr. Who, a potent indica hybrid originally from Homegrown Natural Wonders who wittily combined parent strains Mad Scientist and Timewreck. This 60% indica strain can deliver swift relief to pain, stress, appetite loss, multiple sclerosis, ADHD, mood disorders, and nausea without lethargy or sedation, making Dr. Who a good choice for any time of the day. Its effects are precluded by a sweet and sour aroma of pineapple and grape. Dr. Who flowers in 56 to 63 days indoors, but also grows well in outdoor gardens.
The primary smell of this strain is dank and reminiscent of wet earth. There are also some traces of sour lemon and other tropical fruits lingering underneath. When combusted, the flowers have a harsh smoke which can induce heavy coughing and can sting the sinuses. On the exhale, this smoke has a notably sweet and tangy taste. Interestingly, not all phenotypes of Dr. Who will smell or taste like grape, as the pigments that dictate this strain’s color do not have an effect on its flavor.
Appropriately enough for a strain named after a time-hopping humanoid, Dr. Who may also confer a strong sense of time dilation. Any changes in perception are more relaxing than energizing, in synch with Dr. Who’s mellow body buzz. As the high progresses, this relaxing stimulation of both body and mind can take any direction the user prefers — it’s a great choice for embracing creativity, taking a long walk, or just having a rambling conversation with friends. Medically, Dr. Who has mostly physical applications. It’s a great way to melt away mild aches; it can even dull pain associated with serious diseases like fibromyalgia or multiple sclerosis. When consumed in large enough amounts, it can also be an effective treatment for insomnia. Side effects include dry mouth and heavy, droopy eyes — although couchlock isn’t often reported, and this strain’s mellow character means that there’s a low risk of paranoia. Dr. Who’s high THC content makes it a potent strain for novices and experienced cannabis users alike.
