Moby Dick is a sativa-dominant strain that comes from the breeders at Dinafem, who crossed two of their mother plants, a variety of Haze and a variety of White Widow. Its name reflects its massive yields, which reportedly can reach 1,500 grams per square meter. The THC concentration of this strain may be as high as 20%. Moby is typically light green in color, covered in a dusting of trichomes. It has an herbal, citrusy smell that draws consumers in. The flavors are similar, with notes of dank earth on the exhale.
The effects of this strain are highly psychoactive, due to a high count of tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV). It produces strong euphoria and gives spacey, happy, and slightly psychedelic sensations after only one or two hits. Some users feel creative and focused. The strong cerebral effects begin to diminish after about an hour, but the residual effects can last another two hours. These effects are coupled with pleasant body numbing sensations. Strong and trippy, this strain induces an insatiable appetite. This mega-strain may result in dry eyes and mouth and lead to paranoia, dizziness, and anxiety when consumed in high doses.
Moby Dick is designed specifically as a strong medical strain. It is excellent for daytime use though patients may feel lazy a few hours after use. The cerebral effects are often used to combat the symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. Patients that have lost their appetites, whether it’s due to chemotherapy or other reasons, often choose this strain. The body high may ease mild aches and pains, but it is not strong enough to combat severe pain.
