Snowball Smalls (Indica Hybrid)
Brrrr! Snowball is a rare Indica dominant hybrid strain (with 70% Indica and 30% Sativa). Ethos Genetics created it through crossing the classic White Chem 4 OG to create flowers with big buds with a dense structure with huge resin production. If you’re familiar with this delicious confection, you will be able to draw the connection between the plant and its name. When cultivated properly, trichomes cover the flowers of Snowball, and its cured buds look like they’ve been iced (hence Snowball). THC levels in Snowball are close to 22%, which is obvious from this strain’s appearance.
Snowball is traditionally used at night for relaxation, as it has a calming effect. Several users have described its effects as ‘potently relaxing’. This is probably because this indica-leaning strain has a significant terpene profile that includes caryophyllene, the only terpene known to interact with CB2 receptors. Humulene is another dominant terpene found in Snowball. It has been linked to reducing inflammation and some users have also used it for this purpose, while others take advantage of its ability to help sedate. Unlike other cannabis strains that give users a euphoric high and can induce anxiety or paranoia, it is safe. It helps the user keep calm and reduce pain as well. This makes Snowball an ideal strain to use for medical purposes.
