A jack-of-all-trades in the cannabis deck, Green Queen shuffles out the best cards on the table with the best qualities of an Indica and Sativa hybrid. Harmonizing head and body effects, it is an expansive and energetic cerebral buzz that takes one to a mental flight but is smoothened out by a mellow body high. Sit back and relax because this will bring novice and veteran users to a suave ride.
Its primary breeder is believed to be JB Dank Nugs although there is a debate about that in the cannabis community. The uplifting mental stimulation of Green Queen is a trait inherited from one of the parent strains Green Crack. However, it is Space Queen that has the most influence and mainly responsible for its mostly Indica structure.
Pairing the unlikely couple, the fusion creates a kinder version of its notoriously potent parents. It may have a somewhat vague origin but one thing is for sure: Green Queen provides a royal experience as it reflects its parents’ best traits.

Odor and Flavors
Green Queen permeates a mouthwatering fragrance that invites smokers to a feast fit for royalty. Like a three-course meal, this bud’s aroma provides a diverse experience in itself with shifting odors in each phase.
For the appetizer, it welcomes the nose with initial notes of a pungent and herbal scent underlined with hints of wood and pine. The main dish, however, brings an odd blend of onion soup, toast and roast beef – definitely making Green Queen stand out in the cannabis community for its distinct smell.
Once ignited though, it’s time for dessert, and it delivers a noticeably skunky smell with dashes of sweet, lemon zest and pepper. It’s a perfect finisher as the citrus-like smoke provides a smooth experience, making it an overall easy toke to handle.
Despite being an Indica-dominant strain, Green Queen starts with Sativa effects upon consuming. After about 5 to 10 minutes, it lifts the mind to a powerful but not overwhelming head rush. It creeps in behind the eyes, clouding vision with a euphoric fog that has a dreamy quality, and then it trickles down the body in a gentle buzz.
It’s slow but apparent high that provides an upbeat and relaxed demeanor. But because it surges in small bouts of vigor, it feels like a natural progression to a more positive outlook in life. It elevates the mood and inspires smokers to take on the day, turning even our Monday blues to a bright, exciting hue.
Green Queen may not overpower senses, but its THC content of up to 19% can still pack a mean punch as it envelops the body in a numbing embrace. It helps stabilize heightened energy from the strong Sativa effects to deliver a full-on body relaxation without the sedation. But when taken too much, even Green Queen can induce couch lock.
It’s a perfect late afternoon strain when you need a little boost from the stress of work, but also a preparation for a relaxing evening to come.
Despite boasting of a mid-level high, Green Queen shouldn’t be underestimated. For inexperienced novices, challenging this blue-blooded strain can cause a bump on the road and make for an uncomfortable trip. Its cerebral effect may induce dizziness to those who have low tolerance for sativa, which can induce mild anxiety if taken in higher dosages.
Despite having a royal status, Green Queen has the same adverse effects as the rest of the cannabis variety, which is usually a dry mouth and eyes. It’s easily mitigated by staying dehydrated at all times. So, just having a bottle of refreshments nearby would be enough to curb this discomfort and assure an enjoyable ride all throughout.
