UW cannabis seeds, which are often hard to commercially obtain, are now readily available via Growers Choice.
Legend has it that UW, aka “U-Dub,” was created in the medical research lab of the University of Washington as an indica-heavy hybrid in the 1990s and subsequently stolen by a grad student. No matter the truth of its origin, what is certain is that UW is a highly-popular strain among indica fans.
What are the effects of UW cannabis?
UW cannabis seeds will blossom into plants with a THC content of 22% and an indica to sativa ratio of 80:20. If you’re thinking that means that UW cannabis is going to be quite the sedating strain, you would be correct.
However, before it leaves you contentedly and sleepily laid out on your couch, UW will first put you in a talkative and giggly state, making it ideal for a lazy, yet merry, night in with friends.
While its cerebral effects aren’t particularly pronounced, that doesn’t mean that its deeply relaxing effects don’t also work to refresh your state of mind so that you feel happier, blissful, and lighter.
As UW’s high wears on you can anticipate falling asleep at one point with a big peaceful grin on your face.
What are the therapeutic benefits of UW cannabis?
It has often been said that UW is one of the most highly recommended strains for potentially addressing sleeping issues, which is hardly surprising considering what a powerful indica it is.
However, its deeply relaxing effects aren’t limited to helping medical users get some sleep. UW’s soothing ways are also known to give patients a cerebral buzz.
In addition, UW is often used by medical marijuana patients to address an assortment of physical symptoms, and based on some anecdotal evidence, it can potentially alleviate nausea and help restore the appetite. It’s always advised that you consult with your doctor to see if medicinal marijuana is right for you.
What does UW taste like?
Of the numerous reasons why UW is so popular among lovers of indica strains, having a heavenly flavor is definitely high on that list.
Colorful in looks and colorful in flavors, UW is sure to delight users with its bouquet of sweet and creamy fruity and floral notes. When combusted, many say that its inhale is more on the pungent woody side and its exhale is more berry and earth-like.
How do I grow UW cannabis seeds?
If you’re new to cannabis cultivation, UW is a good option as it’s considered easy to grow for cultivators of all skill levels due in part to the fact that it’s highly-resistant to common molds and mildew, and can be grown both in and outside. In addition, all Growers Choice cannabis seeds are feminized.
When cultivated outdoors, UW requires a warm, Mediterranean-like setting where daytime temps hover in the 70 degree Fahrenheit range.
Regardless of where you grow your UW plants, you will want to top and trim it regularly so that light and air can circulate to its lower growing parts.
To bring out its stunning purples, you’ll need to shock your plants by exposing them to cold, but never freezing, nighttime temperatures just before they enter their flowering stage.
What do UW cannabis plants look like?
The phrase “bag appeal” and UW go hand-in-hand, as this hybrid is quite the stunner.
Medium in height and bushy in width, UW produces large, dense nuggets that are sure to captivate with their looks. Its sticky, resinous buds are a blend of greens and purples interwoven with copper-like pistils and thickly covered in a blanket of foggy-white trichomes.
When to harvest your UW cannabis plant
While not the biggest yielder, UW’s harvests are far from disappointing thanks to their bag appeal and top-notch recreational and medicinal benefits.
If you are growing this potent indica indoors, you can anticipate a yield of 350 grams per square meter in about 8-9 weeks, which, depending on your set-up, you can then plan accordingly and increase your number of harvests in a year.
Outdoors, UW should be harvest-ready in the autumn with a good, solid yield of 450 grams per plant.
