Sweet Tooth Strain Review

If you’re looking for the best of the best when it comes to your recreational or medicinal marijuana, you should try Sweet Tooth! 

Sweet Tooth Strain Review

Not only is this a fragrant and delicious strain that delivers a very pleasant high, but the Sweet Tooth strain has actually won a prestigious award in cannabis retail. 

Stay tuned for a rundown of all the key information pertaining to Sweet Tooth, from potency and cannabinoid content to medicinal uses. 


Sweet Tooth, for many people, delivers the optimal potency. Its THC content is 15%, which is strong enough to provide clearly noticeable effects without being too potent for beginners, as many strains with between 20% and 30% THC often are. 

Its CBD content is very low at 0.2%. This means that there won’t be any noticeable interference between the THC and the CB1 receptors, which is ideal since the THC content isn’t significantly high to begin with. 

What Is Sweet Tooth? 

Sweet Tooth is an Indica-dominant hybrid. It has 40% Sativa and 60% Indica genetics. 

However, Sweet Tooth isn’t just any hybrid marijuana strain. It’s actually an award-winning cannabis variety, having won the Cannabis Cup award in 2001. Since then, the strain has also been in the running for the award in subsequent years. 

How Was Sweet Tooth Developed?

The origins of the Sweet Tooth strain can be traced back to 1995. It is thought that a company called Barney’s Farm (an established American cannabis retailer) crossed 3 different strains to produce Sweet Tooth. 

The Landrace strains combined to make Sweet Tooth are a Nepalese strain, an Afghani strain, and a Hawaiian strain.

Odor And Flavor 

Sweet Tooth gets its name from its delicious flavor and scent, which makes the smoking experience very smooth and pleasant. 

Unusually, Sweet Tooth has a prominent sugary odor that reminds many people of candy or baked goods. This sweetness is also distinguishable in the flavor, although the taste is more natural than the scent, with notes of berry and tree fruit. 

Physical Appearance 

Sweet Tooth bud has a very vibrant green color that makes it visually appealing. Additionally, you may notice some light orange (peach-like) pistils. When Sweet Tooth is dried out, some purple patches can form amongst the green. 

While the vast majority of marijuana strains have noticeable trichomes (crystal-like structures covering the bud), Sweet Tooth has an especially dense covering that, appropriately, looks like sugar. 

Grow Info 

Another great thing about the Sweet Tooth marijuana strain is the fact that it’s relatively easy to grow, even if you don’t have any experience. 

Sweet Tooth is a hardy plant, which means that it’s not as susceptible to elemental, bacterial, or pest damage as other strains. Therefore, it’s a pretty low-maintenance strain that doesn’t require a lot of gardening experience to take care of. 

The main things Sweet Tooth needs for growth are relatively cool temperatures (between 68 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit) and healthy air circulation.

Therefore, it’s best to base the decision on whether you grow Sweet Tooth indoors or outdoors on which area has the most optimal temperatures. It’s also a good idea to invest in an air filter or purifier.

Typically, it takes up to 9 weeks for Sweet Tooth to flower. You can expect an 18 oz yield per plant as long as you provide it with the appropriate plant food. It’s best to harvest the plant between September and October. 


Sweet Tooth lives up to its name by delivering very pleasant and enjoyable effects after consumption. 

Mainly, people who try Sweet Tooth report a feeling of intense relaxation alongside happiness and euphoria. However, despite providing a relaxing experience, Sweet Tooth enhances mental function, so you might actually feel more focused. 

Side Effects 

Sadly, not all of Sweet Tooth’s effects are quite as pleasant as those outlined above. Some people can experience a dry mouth and/or dry eyes, although these symptoms are fairly common and should ease off relatively quickly. 

Roughly 5% of people experience an onset of or increase in paranoia after smoking Sweet Tooth. Therefore, anyone who has a history of paranoia may wish to err on the side of caution and opt for a different strain with a lesser risk of paranoid side effects. 

Medical Appointments 

Thanks to the mood-boosting and relaxing effects of Sweet Tooth, this strain is often used medicinally to treat and alleviate a variety of ailments. 

Sweet Tooth may be effective for medicating mood disorders such as anxiety and depression. It is also sometimes employed to treat chronic pain, including headaches, or physical symptoms from the aforementioned mood disorders. 

Interestingly, Sweet Tooth has also been used to control the symptoms of glaucoma, which is a pressure-related condition that causes damage to the optic nerves.

If you have insomnia or even struggle to relax due to high stress levels, Sweet Tooth may help you to unwind. Thanks to the 40% Sativa content, however, it won’t totally knock you out.

Similar Strains 

Other marijuana strains that taste and smell sweet while providing a relaxing and uplifting experience include Sour Apple and Mango Kush

Sour Apple, unsurprisingly, tastes distinctly of apple, mimicking the tree fruit aftertaste of Sweet Tooth. Its primary effects are happiness and relaxation. 

Meanwhile, Mango Kush has a more tropical flavor reminiscent of – you guessed it – mango! It delivers a sense of happiness and contentment alongside deep relaxation. 

Final Thoughts 

Sweet Tooth is one of the most pleasant strains of marijuana to smoke due to its incredible smell and flavor. However, the taste and scent experience of using Sweet Tooth is only part of the reason why this strain is so popular. 

Sweet Tooth is great for combating stress and anxiety, and can also be effective against depression because of its euphoric effects. It may also help you to sleep if you have insomnia. 

You could also use Sweet Tooth to mitigate physical symptoms, such as chronic pain and optical damage due to glaucoma. Ultimately, whether you use it recreationally or medicinally, Sweet Tooth promises an amazing experience.
