What is Donkey Butter Strain?
Donkey Butter strain is an Indica dominant hybrid marijuana strain. It contains a very high THC content between 25-28%, making it one of the potent cannabis strains in the market. It is not a strain for novice cannabis users. The Donkey Butter strain has a very distinct strong aroma. It begins with an earthy, almost gamey smell before developing into a more complex gasoline-like scent. Medical marijuana patients prefer this strain due to its soothing effects on the body and the mind, making it a popular choice for treating chronic stress, pain, and everyday stress.
Background and Lineage
Donkey Butter strain was developed by Exotic Genetix, the makers of potent strains such as Extreme OG and Kimbo Kush. It is a cross between Triple OG and Grease Monkey. The Grease Monkey strain is notorious for its strong heavy body buzz.
Types of High
Donkey Butter will give you a stimulating, euphoric high that covers your entire body.
Like many other Indica strains, Donkey Butter produces a slow-building high. After a few minutes, you will begin to feel a flushing sensation in your cheeks or a constricted feeling around your temples. Over time, these strange tics will subside, and you become aware of some distinct cognitive changes. A sudden surge of ideas may feel more intense and move more quickly than usual. Having this cerebral edge can enhance your creativity or problem-solving abilities.
Donkey Butter can also cause trippy sensory distortions such as flattening visual depth perspective or an uncanny sensation of time dilation in the proper set and setting. You can enhance this psychedelic mood by playing moody music or watching a visually dynamic movie.
Donkey Butter’s body high sets in after about an hour (or sooner if you increase the intake). You may suddenly feel weighed down and sleepy and may want to make a mad dash to home if you are outside. Meanwhile, those who are already lounging in comfortable surroundings can begin to feel as if they’re sinking into the furniture. As this stoney feeling intensifies, it may undo much of the strain’s initial mental stimulation, leaving you unable to do much more than binge-watch, snack, or nap.
Because it tends to cause couch-lock, it is best to consume this strain in the afternoon or evening.
Even though most people take the Donkey Butter strain for recreational purposes, it can also provide several medicinal benefits to medical marijuana patients.
The upbeat, happy mood it brings can temporarily relieve stress, depression, anxiety, and even PTSD symptoms. It can also provide relief for physical pain, whether it is due to a temporary injury or inflammation or a chronic condition, like fibromyalgia or COPD.
Donkey Butter strain can induce appetite and is used as a stimulant by people who suffer from digestive conditions or chemotherapy.
Cannabis strains can help improve sleep, as better sleep is highly beneficial to mental health. Donkey Butter strain can treat insomnia when taken in sufficient doses.
Always consult your doctor before taking marijuana for any medicinal benefits to avoid any long-term health consequences.
Like any other potent cannabis strain, it is possible to experience side effects from smoking Donkey Butter strain.
Donkey Butter strain is generally reported to have only pleasant effects. However, couch-lock and sleepiness are also common occurrences. Like most cannabis strains, it can cause a feeling of cottonmouth and dry eyes when smoking this strain. These are easily manageable with a bit of planning and preparation. Drink plenty of fluid before, during, and after consumption to keep yourself hydrated. Eye drops from your local pharmacy or drugstore can help you with dry or red eyes.
If you experience slight flushing in your cheeks or constrictions in your head, don’t worry – it will pass almost as quickly as it came on.
It is essential to know that the side effects of marijuana can vary between people. If you are taking any cannabis strain for the first time, take it in a smaller dose and only increase the dosage if it seems appropriate. You should always know your limit and stick to it at all times.
