This very powerful cannabis strain is a hybrid plant created by one Bert Baccarat, and is produced by Los Angeles Kush.
The scout’s honor cannabis strain is basically a cross between OG Kush Breath (AKA OGKB for short), and OG Kush.
It is an indica dominant hybrid, specifically 70% indica and 30% sativa.
The scouts honor cannabis strain does not occur naturally, and was created artificially by Bert Baccarat. It is grown and sold by Los Angeles Kush. You can purchase the seeds to grow this strain online.
The scout’s honor cannabis strain grows to a medium height, and features many dense and resinous neon green buds, with bright orange hairs, along with a generous dusting of small and golden crystal trichomes. You may also spot some sporadic purple foliage on it too.
Besides the great psychological effects of the scout’s honor cannabis strain, one of the great plus points of this particular breed is its flavor and aroma…
The scout’s honor cannabis strain is a little savory and earthy, but at the same time it’s also very sweet. There’s a kind of doughy sweetness that really lingers on the exhale, and that in itself is enough to give you the munchies.
Some users also report a kind of flowery flavor, and others have reported a woody undertone.
Although the initial scent of the scout’s honor cannabis strain is rather pungent, once this aroma disperses you’re left with a gorgeous dough-like sweetness.
The aroma and taste produced by the scout’s honor cannabis strain is due to its included terpenes, which we will be covering very shortly.
For those who don’t already know, cannabinoids are the name given to compounds found in cannabis plants that will bind to cannabinoid receptors on nerve cells in the brain.
These cannabinoid compounds can be either psychoactive or non-psychoactive. If a cannabinoid is psychoactive, this means that it will have an effect on the mind.
There are just two cannabinoids present in the Knockout cannabis strain. More specifically, there is typically at least 23 percent of THC (AKA Tetrahydrocannabinol). For those who don’t already know, this is a particularly high proportion.
THC is known to be a highly psychoactive cannabinoid, which explains why those who receive the high dose found in the Knockout cannabis strain are in for quite the potent high.
There have also been reports of finding as much as 32 percent of THC in there!
The second cannabinoid present in the Knockout cannabis strain is CBG (Cannabigerol). But there’s only 1 percent present, and this cannabinoid is not psychoactive.
For those who don’t already know, it is the terpenes that are present within the plant that are responsible for both its flavor and aroma. And to an extent, this can influence the nature of your high.
The most dominant terpene present in the scout’s honor strain is caryophyllene. It has a mix of identifiable scents, including the likes of pepper, spice, and diesel. It may cause your nose to tingle when you breathe it in.
The caryophyllene terpene is also found in cloves and in cinnamon, and it has been known to aid relaxation and provide relief for anxiety.
Another terpene present in the scout’s honor strain is myrcene. Myrcene is one of the more common terpenes found in cannabis plants, and it is known to give off a herbal and peppery aroma.
There’s also a third terpene present in the scout’s honor cannabis strain, known as limonene. As you may have guessed from the name, this terpene gives off a citrus taste and aroma.
It is thought that the sweet, dough-like taste and aroma that you get from this strain comes from the limonene terpene.
Strain Side Effects
Unfortunately, as you may have imagined with it having such a level of psychoactive cannabinoid THC present, the scout’s honor cannabis strain does feature some negative side effects…
For example, about 70 percent of users have reported feeling dizzy, feeling anxious, and have trouble sleeping.
Paradoxically, however, despite so many users experiencing trouble sleeping, almost a third of users have reported the strain making them feel sleepy.
Meanwhile, nearly 100 percent of users have reported a dry mouth after using. But this is a very common feature across many cannabis strains.
We are pleased to report, however, that several medical benefits have been brought to our attention…
The predominant medical benefits derived from the scout’s honor cannabis strain are psychological ones. This should not be surprising, given the extremely high level of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC (AKA Tetrahydrocannabinol).

The scout’s honor cannabis strain has also proved to be very effective at treating a lack of appetite.
And finally, it has also been reported that the scout’s honor can reduce cramps.
However, only 57% of users have reported this. So it’s pain relieving properties can be considered minor, and it is not recommended for treating chronic or debilitating pain.
The scout’s honor cannabis strain is quite the heavy hitter, which is not at all surprising, given it’s incredibly high psychoactive cannabinoid THC levels, which can sometimes be as much as a whopping 32 percent.
The buzz will creep up on you slowly but surely, gradually building as your body relaxes to a point where you’re practically melded with the couch.
As your physical state begins to settle, the psychological buzz will really start to kick in.
Although you can expect to feel very relaxed, at the same time you will begin to feel euphoric, creative, and imaginative. All without affecting your overall energy levels.
You can also expect to feel quite peckish, so if you’re indulging, you would be well advised to keep some snacks handy, so that you don’t have to leave the couch to get them, and you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the high.
And remember, if you do start to detect unpleasant side effects, just stop and patiently wait for these adverse side effects to pass.
