Middlefork Strain Review
Promising a high that shoots off the roof, Middlefork is a sativa-dominant strain that will take hold of users quickly in a bracing cerebral rush. Named after a fork that connects two rivers in Washington State, it similarly bridges a distinctive balance of strong mental and physical stimulation. As such, it delivers an endless stream of positive vibrations to users.
Such a feat was possible due to its breeders at Royal Tree Gardens and the crossing of full-flavored DJ Short Blueberry as well as Dutch Treat. Rightly so, their offspring taste and feel like a treat as its latter parent adds in a sweet flavor of euphoria, one that reduces stress and soothes the mind.
DJ Short Blueberry, on the other hand, brings a delicious blend of berry flavors with its sleep-inducing quality that effectively winds down the body. Fusing two powerhouses created an offspring that is ultimately a feel-good strain, one that can flood the spirit with a surge of happiness.

Odor and Flavors
Upbeat but not too light, Middlefork stirs a warm and deep aroma of berries into the strain’s tropical palate. It delivers a slab of tartness and freshness, but also squeezes out a cheerful cut from lemons. A burst of acridness aptly invigorates all the senses, and melts into the tongue like a sweet and sour candy. Indeed, users will be tempted to pop some of these buds in their mouth upon opening the bag.
Like a fork in the road, this strain offers two choices to users. Depending on the dosage, the high can either take the mind beyond the clouds in an energizing and mind-bending high, or float in utter relaxation as all forms of worries are thrown to the wind.
With this strain leaning towards a wakeful quality, most likely users will experience an elevated mood that seems to know no bounds. As such, this is great to use for those who have lost their motivation as one toke can truly be enough to get users back on their feet.
Now fired up with energy, any responsibilities for the day will surely be completed with a smile. Additionally, focusing on the task at hand seems easier with the right push from this strain. This uplifting smoke also spreads a tickling sensation, one that triggers bouts of laughter amongst friends.
They say the more the merrier, and this strain definitely proves it. With a circle that tight, there’s no way any stress can squeeze itself in. As the mind and body completely relaxes, users can indulge in happy feelings all day long.
Considered as the cannabis version of a happy pill, there are still some negative effects that tail after but thankfully, it’s relatively easy to handle. Such is the case with many cannabis variants, cottonmouth and dry, itchy eyes are the two most common reactions in the 420 community. So much so that it is often overlooked already, but it’s also quickly resolved through a glass of water.
In some rarer cases, those with low tolerance may be vulnerable to minor bouts of dizziness, headaches and even paranoia. As such, users should always start with a dosage that they can handle before building it up if it’s still needed.
Medical Use and Benefits
Converging at the crossroad between a motivating and soothing high, this strain takes medical patients onto a road to self-improvement. Any roadblocks such as stress and other burdens of life are flattened, allowing users to escape from persisting ailments.
Additionally, this strain is known to emotionally uplift users and refuel their emptied spirits with a renewed sense of purpose. As such, guides long-sufferers of depression and anxiety back on track and pushes them to drive straight onto a better quality of life.
As the high wears on, its herculean THC volume of up to 27% comes down in slow, gentle movements that pulverize muscle tension. Undoing the initial wakeful effects, users perception will slowly shift from being crystal clear to dopey and dreamy.
Soon enough, users will be lulled to sleep. Insomniacs can even tag along the ride to dreamland because with this strain, users are guaranteed a physical and mental relief.
Middlefork may come as a challenge to most growers, especially since seeds are not readily made available online. As such, clippings from mature, healthy plants are taken into account in order to grow genetically identical clones.
Once obtained, while it’s not overly difficult, this plant requires some expertise for it to grow to its full potential. It grows into a height of 165 cm and may also come in an attention-grabbing pungency, so growers are advised to invest in carbon air filters to control the odor it permeates.
It can thrive in either an indoor or outdoor setup though, but it prefers a warm and humid Mediterranean climate if taken outside. Furthermore, it can be plucked around the beginning of October with a yield of 450 grams per plant.
Meanwhile, indoor growing should maintain a temperature of about 20°C and should produce a fresh yield of 300 grams per square meter at a flowering time of about 7 to 8 weeks.
