Mango Strain Review
A pleasantly full-bodied hybrid, Mango blends all the good things people could want in cannabis into one smooth toke. It is an instant mood lift that brings even Sativa and Indica experience, transporting smokers to a tropical retreat after work.
While Mango has been around since the early 60s, the addition of KC 33 genetics in further improved its tantalizing and balanced high. Having Afghani as a parent is already impressive on its own; other than being a household name, it also promotes a smooth-sailing body effect. A trait passed on to the offspring.
Add that with KC 33’s fresh, citrus aroma and invigorating cerebral effects, and that explans how Mango delivers a weightless mental buzz that doesn’t spill over the body in overpowering waves.
It also boasts of large buds that grow up to the size of a softball with a stunning streak of red and splashes of purple hues. Combine the positive vibrations with a sweet fragrance, it should not come as a surprise that it would bag an esteemed third place in the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2002. Aptly named after the king of fruits, this refreshing juice provides instant energy to smokers.
