Odor and Flavors
Often lauded for its flavorful buds, it permeates a sweet and spicy mix that make it seem like a fruit basket had been placed in the room. Pungent overtones accompany a subtle tanginess too. On the exhale, it leaves a refreshing aftertaste of pine which is one of its winning attributes.
Like other Sativa-dominant strains, Dirty Girl induces a high-flying cerebral high that starts within minutes after the first two or three puffs. When it hits, a buzzing sensation that raises energy levels is felt all over the body. Beginning in the mind, it enhances the mood and leaves users felling happier than ever.
Blissful yet functional, its rush of euphoria mentally prepares people for a productive-filled day. It clears the mind but ushers in profound thoughts. With an upbeat disposition, one’s resolve to complete tasks and come up with innovative concepts is strengthened.

It has a compounding effect on focus so enthusiasts can concentrate for longer periods of time without feeling distracted by either unwanted thoughts or sudden pain. One can already guess a blissful ending awaits users at the comedown.
However, if it used beyond limits, the clean experience can be muddied by a psychedelic turnabout.
Normally used as an afternoon pick-me-up, its high THC can turn a leisurely cerebral trip into mental overdrive when smoked beyond one’s individual tolerance. The double-edged side effects are usually marked by a temporary dizziness, subtle headache, and a bout of paranoia as the disorienting high persists. Most of the time, however, users only experience dryness in the eyes and the mouth.

Growing Dirty Girl
Dirty Girl is a striking plant that is unlike any other Sativa strains. Apart from being crowned by diamond-encrusted trichomes, it has the sturdy structure of an Indica. Its stalks, though relatively tall, are not at all lanky. Rather, it, along with its branches, are thick enough to withstand gusts of wind but will still need support to keep it from breaking into two from the weight of its heavy buds.
With a natural resistance to mold, mildew, and other moisture-related diseases, this plant will do well in either indoor or outdoor settings with high levels of humidity. Moreover, its versatility is apparent in its ability to adapt to various growing methods or mediums.
For example, it will produce vigorously with a hydroponics medium but will have an edge on flavor when cultivated in soil. Using a Screen of Green set-up will help growers identify which parts to cut as well as improve bud growth. At just 8 to 9 weeks of indoor flowering time, it can easily produce 300 to 350 grams of gluey buds per square meter.
It thrives best under the heat of the sun in a Mediterranean area where the days are longer. This is not to say that it will not flourish in the northern hemisphere. On the contrary, its hardy structure allows it to produce buds by early October with each plant producing 350 grams of buds.
