Origin

As we have already touched upon above, Snow Leopard is not only made by a mysterious breeder, but it is also relatively rare – which means that there isn’t too much information on Snow Leopard out there.

Nevertheless, it is known that Snow Leopard was created by the ever-mysterious breeder, Bodhi Seeds, and incorporates elements from two different types of weed strains – Tigermelon and Snow Lotus.

A real beauty, Snow Leopard is a strain of cannabis that is covered in deep golden, brown, and red pistils that are set alight by frosty white trichomes.

To the touch, Snow Leopard feels somewhat sticky and has a lumpy texture that will make breaking off the nugs when you’re ready to use it easy.

While the average amount of THC is between 17-21%, there are some users who have reported upwards of 30%, so it’s good to do your research prior to purchasing any.

So, with that being said, the most common strain terpene found within Snow Leopard is myrcene, as well as additional terpenes pinene and caryophyllene.

Strain Side Effects

Just like with any other strain of weed, there are a variety of side effects that you should make sure that you are aware of prior to trying it.

For starters, Snow Leopard has the potential to cause couch-lock, which means that this strain might not be a good option for those who dislike the sedative feeling that Indica can bring.

Snow Leopard can also increase feelings of hunger, cause dry mouth and increase redness or itchiness in the eyes. Alongside all of the above, Snow Leopard can also increase feelings of tiredness and arousal.

You should also keep in mind that due to the rarity of Snow Leopard, the THC levels present within its various yields might vary.

This is something that you should keep in mind prior to trying it, especially if you do not have an overly high THC resistance.

Medical Benefits

Even though Snow Leopard comes with a variety of potential side effects that we have talked you through above, it also comes with a variety of medical benefits that are worth keeping in mind.

Thanks to it generally being created with an Indica dominance of over 50%, it means that Snow Leopard is a great choice for people who are currently dealing with a loss of appetite, as Snow Leopard has the ability to increase appetite significantly.

Alongside a loss of appetite, Snow Leopard can also be used in a controlled way to help create a healthy, daily food routine in individuals recovering from an eating disorder.

Alongside that, Snow Leopard can also be used to help alleviate feelings of anxiety and depression, and can also be used to help treat insomnia. So, if you find yourself struggling to get those eight hours of sleep each night, Snow Leopard might very well be your ticket to dreamland.

All in all, Snow Leopard will make for a well-balanced, beautiful trip that’s best-suited to experienced smokers that enjoy the feeling of an Indica high that incorporates the best elements of Sativa.

Though, due to Snow Leopard’s tendency to cause moderate feelings of sedation – if you’re looking for a “wake and bake” strain – Snow Leopard might not be what you’re looking for.

Strain Yield

As we have touched upon briefly above, Snow Leopard is a strain of weed that can grow in a variety of different environments, including both indoor and outdoor.

However, even though this might be the case, the environment that you decide to grow your Snow Leopard in will ultimately affect how good the yield is after you have waited the 9-week flowering period.

Typically, the strongest Snow Leopard yields will come from being kept in an optimally warm environment, which is why we suggest that you grow your Snow Leopard inside a greenhouse if you want the best yield possible.
