Permafrost is a Sativa-dominant strain that is named for the thick, frosty layer of trichomes that the buds of this strain are typically covered in.
Generally a few hits brings on a strong sense of euphoria which is followed by an increase in the flow of creative juices and energy. Users often feel uplifted and focused. This strain is good for morning or afternoon use as the energizing and uplifting effects often makes users feel a need to get stuff done. Users that choose this strain should be aware that it comes with all the usual side effects of most strains – cotton mouth, dry eyes, paranoia, dizziness and headaches.
This hybrid is most often reportedly used to alleviate overwhelming stress, anxiety, nervousness, fatigue and tension typically brought on by depression-related disorders. Following closely are those who deal with constant aches and pains, though this strain offers little respite from severe chronic pain (see strains dedicated to pain management here). Some users choose it to induce appetites and calm queasy stomachs as well.
Permafrost is the child of two powerful strains known world wide. The mother Trainwreck and the father White Widow. The strain reportedly produces a decent yield and flowers for around 12 weeks. Two other strains exist with this name, one of which is an older clone-only strain and some improperly cataloged Purple Arrow.
