Effects of the Gary Payton Strain

Considering that like Gelato 33–named for former Celtics star Larry Bird–this hybrid marijuana strain was named for a highly-lauded and decorated NBA star, you would be right in expecting it to possess some pretty impressive recreational and medical benefits.

However, before getting into the various effects of the Gary Payton strain a word of caution: this particular marijuana strain can pack quite the punch, so you would be well-advised to first have maybe one or two hits at most and then wait a spell to see how it affects you before you decide to go the whole hog.

Gary Payton strain’s Recreational Effects

Generally, much like Jean Guy, the Gary Payton strain gets things going with some big energizing effects that can send the mind soaring into the stratosphere in a state of euphoria and immense buzzing elation. As a highly social strain, the Gary Payton strain is known to induce some belly-aching laughter that seems to know no limit. The creative and mind-focusing cerebral effects of this hybrid strain are often reported to be beneficial in helping users stay on track, and its stimulating side can help keep one feeling motivated to continue to check things off their to-do list.

As for the body relaxation offered by the Gary Payton strain, it’s the perfect kind of warming, soothing body buzz that can leave you feeling calm and lighter without overwhelming with sedation or getting in the way of your ability to enjoy its giddy, giggly, and gregarious side.

Is Gary Payton strain best used during the day or evening?

Some users consider the Gary Payton strain to be an excellent choice as a morning wake-and-bake option due to its ability to boost energy levels right off the bat. Others tend to prefer to use it later in the day in lieu of a pot of coffee to stay productive and uplifted, others like to use it as a sort of “second wind before heading out for a night of joy-filled revelry, while still, others find that this versatile weed strain makes for a good night in just kicking back and feeling happy to be alive.

All of which is to say that depending on your dosage, tolerance level, and purposes, this marijuana strain with its balanced effects can be ideal for getting up and getting going or chilling out and unwinding.

Gary Payton strain’s Potential Therapeutic Benefits

Thanks to Gary Payton strain’s high THC content, 1% CBD levels, and terpene content it is also a popular choice amongst medical users to potentially address various medical conditions.

Gary Payton strain’s positive, upbeat, and calming effects that induce a sense of mental and physical levity are reported by many medicinal users to make this potent strain a solid candidate for addressing issues like stress, anxious thoughts, feelings of despair, and other mood-related disorders. In addition, its reputation for helping to focus the mind may be beneficial to patients who struggle with ADHD-like symptoms.

The non-sedative deep relaxation and anecdotal analgesic properties that the Gary Payton strain offers are believed by those in the medical marijuana community to help provide some pain relief for ailments like headaches, migraines, body aches, muscle spasms, nausea, and loss of appetite.

Does the Gary Payton strain have any potential side-effects?

The Gary Payton strain is probably best reserved for use by a more experienced cannabis user and not a first-timer as its potency is no joke. Not that you have to be a daily toker to handle this hybrid, but if you’ve never tried marijuana before or rarely use it, this one is likely to be just a bit too much as even seasoned users are advised to try this weed strain in extreme moderation.

If you do end up unintentionally exceeding your tolerance level, there’s the possibility that you could find that your pre-existing anxiety levels are that much higher, or that ungluing yourself from the couch is “impossible.”

Lastly, as is the case for most cannabis strains, even ones like Hash Plant that have a more moderate THC content, the Gary Payton strain can lead to dry eyes and cottonmouth–both of which can be easily addressed by using eye drops if need be and drinking plenty of water.

Gary Payton’s Aroma and Flavor Profile

When it comes to the Gary Payton strain, its terpenes have a delightful aroma and delicious flavor profile that is rooted in its terpene content of caryophyllene, which is its dominant terpene, followed by phellandrene, D-Limonene, β-Pinene, valencene, and geraniol. All of which are known to have potential therapeutic effects.

The Gary Payton strain offers up a non-discreet, captivating aroma that some liken to the smell of a rubber basketball mixed with zesty citrus, spicy diesel, and herbaceous notes all of which provide users with a solid idea of what to expect out of its exquisite flavor that is both spicy and sweet. Many users say that this 50/50 hybrid has a strongly diesel-like taste mixed with mint, pine, nutmeg, and sweet fruity flavors.

The Gary Payton Strain’s Genetics

Once upon a time ago some brilliant minds got together and decided to play matchmaker between sativa-dominant hybrid Snowman and evenly-balanced The Y, aka “Y Griega.” As it turned out, this was a match made in marijuana heaven as embodied by Gary Payton–the offspring of these two phenomenal parent strains.

Containing up to 25% THC and 1% CBD, the Gary Payton weed strain, much like its namesake, is no amateur when it comes to delivering some powerfully potent effects that score big with medical and recreational users alike.

Is the Gary Payton strain an Indica or a Sativa?

With 50% of each, the Gary Payton strain is both an indica and a sativa, thereby allowing both growers and users access to the best that both of these worlds have to offer.

While its genetics are an even 50/50 split, like White Russian and Champagne Kush, this feminized seed strain does tend to lean a titch towards the sativa side of things delivering long-lasting energetic and uplifting effects that are that much easier to fully enjoy thanks to the physical relaxation that this hybrid cannabis strain also offers.

How to Successfully Cultivate the Gary Payton Strain?

For starters, like all of the weed seeds that we at Growers Choice Seeds sell, the Gary Payton strain is available in feminized seed form. The reason that we only sell photoperiods and autoflowers as feminized seeds is that they have a 99% chance of maturing into all-female plants that provide growers with the cannabinoid-rich buds that they are hoping to harvest.

While the Gary Payton strain is considered to be an easy strain to grow that is suitable for outdoor and indoor cultivation, it is prone to issues like mold, fungus, and other types of moisture damage that can result from overwatering, lack of good air circulation, etc.

As such, no matter where you are growing your Gary Payton marijuana plants you will want to make sure they are in a warm setting where humidity levels are around 60%. Because these crops require above-average humidity levels whilst still being prone to moisture damage issues, you will want to prune your crops regularly to improve their air and light circulation, which should help to reduce the risk of mildew, infections, and so on.

Are Gary Payton Marijuana Plants Tall?

If you are planning to cultivate your Gary Payton marijuana plants indoors, just keep in mind that they can reach up to six feet in height, which if you have average-height ceilings in your grow space shouldn’t be an issue, but if you’re using a closet as your indoor grow space, this could mean that you will need to do some outdoor growing with this strain.

The buds that the Gary Payton strain produces are mint green, adorned with vibrant orange pistils, and blanketed in a thick layer of white and amber-colored trichomes that shimmer and glimmer in the light of day.

Gary Payton strain’s Harvest Times and Yields

If you are growing your Gary Payton marijuana plants indoors, they should complete their flowering stage in approximately 50-65 days providing a potent yield of up to 450 grams per square meter. Outside, this 50/50 hybrid should bless you with a bountiful yield of up to 570 grams per plant sometime around the middle to end of October.

Backstory of the Gary Payton Strain

Also known in the cannabis industry as “Cookies Gary Payton,” this evenly-balanced hybrid was named after the two-time Olympic gold medalist and NBA Hall of Famer Gary Payton, who graced the courts back in the early 1990s into the early 2000s.

According to legend, this exceptional strain was named for the sports legend who wore the number 20 because, during its creation, it was the 20th phenotype that offered the most impressive effects. As such, in the parlance of the sports world, the Gary Payton strain was the “20th phenotype to be drafted.”
