Don’t be alarmed — The Blood is a pure sativa that’s named for its blood-red leaves and stems rather than any kind of violent effects it might exert. This strain is native to Hawaii and is a distinct phenotype of the famed Kona Gold varietal. The seed stock of this valuable strain is maintained by the state’s Pua Mana 1st Hawaiian Pakal?l? Seed Bank. Its THC content has been measured at between 31% to 33%.
The Blood is perhaps most noted for its uniquely-colored flowers. These large buds have an irregular, chunky shape and cling together in a characteristically loose structure. Actual plants of The Blood have red stems and deep red veins criss-crossing their broad fan leaves the trimmed flowers also retain some traces of red in their leaves and pistils. Finally, a high volume of cloudy white trichomes accounts for the flowers’ psychoactivity and makes them very difficult to break up without the aid of a grinder.
