What is Superglue Strain?
Super Glue Strain (aka Superglue OG) is a super potent, hybrid marijuana strain. It has a reputation of hitting hard like a smack on the face. The average THC content of this strain can be between 18% to a whopping 28%. You will feel an instant rush of endorphins to the brain, but this Indica-dominant hybrid strain has a calming and relaxing effect on the body and mind. Superglue strain is excellent for patients suffering from fatigue, tremors or muscle spasms, insomnia, depression, pain, and nausea. If you are looking for a hybrid strain that is pretty potent and makes you feel stress-free within minutes, then the Superglue strain is the right strain for you.
Background and Lineage
Superglue marijuana strain was originally developed by Seedism Seeds, founded in 2007 by three cannabis enthusiasts. It became popular after winning the 3rd prize at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2015 for the best Sativa. Even the Indica to Sativa ratio is an adequate balance of 60/40, but the strain tends to have a more favorable Sativa effect.
This hybrid strain is a cross between the legendary Afghani and the famous Northern lights cannabis strains. For decades breeders have been using these strains to create countless other strains, so you can tell that Superglue is a quality strain.
The strain is prevalent on the west coast of the United States, but its reputation is globally known. Superglue is well-loved by the growers because of its high yield and exceptional high.
Types of High
The high hits you pretty hard and fast with a euphoric boost. After a few tokes, you will feel uplifted and an increase in energy but not enough to do much of anything. You will feel happy and relaxed. The relaxation will start growing over your entire body. Your muscles will loosen up, and tension will leave. It will pull you into such a lazy calm that you would not want to move or do anything.
Superglue offers a long and slow high. Because of this strain’s heavy-hitting properties, you should have it in the late evening or night when there is nothing to do. It may not be ideal for you if you are new to the marijuana scene. The high can be a little potent if you’re not used to it.
If you take it during movie time, be prepared to burst out into laughter, even at the not-so-funny parts. You may feel clear-headed and invincible, but in reality, you are tripping over your own feet. So, tread lightly, do not do any heavy lifting, or handle any glass object as you are likely to drop them.
Being a hybrid strain and cross between such legendary strains like Afghani and Northern Lights, Superglue packs a potent bag of therapeutic qualities for medical marijuana patients.
- Medical patients suffering from a variety of pains, muscle spasms, and tremors significantly benefited from the physical effect of superglue strain. It slowed down their symptoms and provided temporary relief.
- It’s relaxing, and uplifting properties are very effective for people with mental health conditions like anxiety and depression.
- The stain’s sedative properties can also be helpful for people with sleeping disorders or insomnia.
Even the strain doesn’t lead to any intrusive or mind racing thought, but the effects of this strain can be very potent to the novice and seasoned smokers if they take it in a high dose.
Like any other strains, too much could lead to unwanted adverse effects, such as dry eyes and dry mouth. These are the common side effect of most cannabis strains. To avoid these, make sure that you stay hydrated all the time.
Some users also reported that they felt anxious or paranoid and dizziness. In all these cases, it is only temporary and will go away in minutes. But if it persists, then it is either cut down on the amount used or use a different strain next time.
Finally, smoking marijuana can also make you very hungry.
Growing Super Glue Strain
Superglue strain is very popular among the growers. The flowering time is very short, and the yields are very decent. This strain can be grown both indoors and outdoors, with enough sunshine during the growing period.
If you are a beginner, this might not be the right strain for you, or you might need to get help. The plants can be a bit harder to manage because they are very susceptible to mold. Humidity and rain can cause big problems. Other than that, it is straightforward to grow this strain.
Many growers prefer to grow Superglue strains indoors as it is easier to control the humidity, airflow, and ventilation to manage the mold issue. Indoors, the plant can grow from 1.2 – 1.5 meters tall. Indoor yields can be 400-500 grams per square meter with short flowering time 8-10 weeks.
The plant thrives well in a semi-humid climate. If it rains a lot, try getting a fan to make sure the plants don’t sit in the wet and cold. In high humidity, make sure that there is adequate airflow.
Outdoor yield can be between 500-600 grams per square meter, and the plants can grow up to 2 meters in height. The outdoor harvest time is around late October.
Because of the high THC content, the flowers are dense and super-sticky. The trimming scissors can get pretty sticky so, you may have to invest in new scissors often.
