What does the Red Headed Stranger strain do?

Red Headed Stranger is a stimulating daytime strain. It’ll make you want to go for a euphoric run or start a creative project. Red Headed Stranger might also finally give you the motivation to clean your kitchen (we’re not making promises). 

Here are some more details we think you should know about Red Headed Stranger.

Red Headed Stranger is a cross between William’s Wonder and Tom Hill’s beloved strain, Haze. Its bouquet is spicy and sharp, with a hint of herbaceousness. And, as we said above, Red Headed Stranger is energizing for most people. It’ll get your body and mind moving. 

Red Headed stranger is a reasonable choice for new Colorado cannabis consumers since it has a relatively low THC percentage (this also makes it a good daytime strain). 

It’s also award-winning. Red Headed Stranger won “Best Sativa” in the 2012 High Times Colorado Cannabis Cup.
