The Mango cannabis strain has been around since the early 1960s. In 1991, it was crossed with KC 33 to give us the current Mango strain. Its buds have been known to grow very large, about the size of a softball, and can be up to a foot and a half in length. The foliage turns to a deep red/purple color with a smell and taste of sweet mango. Mango takes 9 to 11 weeks to flower and has a THC content of 15-24%.
This strain acts as a bit of a sneaky one, with a slight high that makes you feel calm and joyous. As you continue through your journey, you’ll end up with a growing sense of energy and a happy attitude that allows you to be creative. Many users notice a body high associated with Mango and primarily note feelings of warm tingles. Although a lot of strains can tend to make you a bit hungry, Mango will likely make you ravenous, so stock up on the snacks beforehand!
The positive vibes that come from Mango are what make it such an effective choice for individuals who struggle with stress and depression. Pain management isn’t beyond its reach either, as it can tend to have a numbing effect on the body at times. When smoked in larger doses, Mango can also have a rather sedating effect, making it a good choice for insomniacs.
Growing Mango might catch you a bit off guard at first, as it seems like the plants aren’t doing much of anything. While they start off slow, buds eventually reach the size of softballs and can become very heavy for unsupported branches. Expect a high yield after anywhere from 8 to 11 weeks, and grow inside or outside as Mango does either nicely.
