Dr. Who Strain Review
Cruise across time and space with Dr. Who, an Indica-heavy hybrid with a cult following in the cannabis community for its mind-bending yet physically grounding high. While it sharpens the senses, it delivers more of a relaxing rather than energizing buzz.
Packing quite a potent clout, just one toke of this ganja can bring novice and veterans alike out of this world, so it is best taken with caution.
An offspring of legendary parents Mad Scientist and Timewreck, this experiment was instigated by Homegrown Natural Wonders.
With the Mad Scientist’s talent for peaceful sedation plus the disorienting euphoria of Timewreck, the result is a full body-mind warp that can transport users to a plane free of worldly pains.
Furthermore, it stimulates abstract thoughts, making this quite the match for binging an episode or two of the famous BBC series its named after. As the high wears on, users might even feel like they are time-hopping through the 420 galaxy with the doctor himself.

Odor and Flavors
While Dr. Who can bring users’ outer space, its scent features all things that lead to home as it permeates a sweet and sour aroma with plenty of earthiness. Woody undertones bring warmth to its laidback nature, and the slight pungency adds a kick to the overall experience. Indeed, it’s an over-the-moon high with a down-to-earth flavor profile, making this quite an all-around out strain.
Packing a truly stellar high, Dr. Who can tag users along its trippy adventures. While it leans more on the classic calming qualities of an Indica, it still induces a pronounced uplifting mental stimulation that results in an introspective buzz.
With a whopping THC volume of 23%, first-timers should be wary, or the high might fly one too close to the sun.
But if done right, it leaves a relaxing but functional experience. There is a lack of lethargy that is typically associated with Indica hybrids. Instead, the world feels more dynamic as the mind sharpens.
The quality of ideas improves, and it may unlock an artistic zeal in users. As such, users may gravitate towards low-key tasks that aren’t physically demanding.
Furthermore, it may confer a strong sense of time dilation. The high seems to last millennia, but really it’s just a few hours, maybe two or three episodes long. As the high wears on, users can take off in any direction – unwind to a night of Netflix and chill, or take full use of the creative boost and make some progress with a project.
Typical with cannabis, side effects always come and go, but the intensity depends on the users’ tolerance and intake. As mentioned, Dr. Who is a potent concoction, so taking too much may cause anxiety or dizziness.
Cottonmouth and dry eyes are ever present in many strains, but this is a minimal irritation that can be easily eased in the form of a tall glass of water. Preparing refreshments within an arm’s reach of the session would be wise.
Medical Use and Benefits
Dr. Who may not be a real doctor, but its bevy of healing talents is no quack. Its high THC content makes this an effective alternative to prescription drugs, and its ability to aid a spectrum of ailments proves its value as a medical strain.
The strain’s upbeat and cheerful nature makes it a go-to buddy for patients with mood disorders. Even stress feels like a world away as this doctor lifts the mind to a happy place. Now transported to a more positive atmosphere, sufferers of depression can find inner peace and delve into tasks without any worries clouding the mind.
Of course, being dominantly Indica, its analgesic features take intergalactic measures to transport users in a plane free of worldly pains. Unchained from the binding aches of back pain, muscle spasms, and migraines, users can now freely relax and enjoy the day or night to the fullest.
Dr. Who can produce mellow sedation, but taking a tad bit more may drift even insomniacs off to dreamland.
Growing Dr. Who
Resistant to mildew and other diseases, Dr. Who can do well in either an indoor or outdoor setup. Although it thrives better in a controlled environment where there is constant warmth.
It grows with an Indica structure that sport short, bushy and lateral branches. It also develops large nuggets. Hence, the stems and branches may need support to keep it from drooping.
Indoors, flowering time takes about 8 to 9 weeks with an average yield of 300 grams per square meter. It is not the most impressive when with regards to production, but the quality is nonetheless grand. Meanwhile, it should be ready for harvest by early October when cultivated outdoors. Each plant has the potential to produce 400 grams per plant.
