American Dream is a hybrid cannabis strain that was developed by Sensi Seeds. The name actually comes from a comment made by one of the strain’s developers about breeders who work with specific plants over long periods to try to improve upon the previous generation, much like the idea of the original American dream.
The strain was developed by mixing the genetics of an Afghanistan Indica, Skunk #1, a Jamaican Sativa, and a Hawaiian Sativa. It resulted in an indica dominant hybrid that provides a cerebral effect together with a calming body high.
American Dream has an earthy and pungent flavour that lingers in the mouth. It provides a euphoric high that will leave you uplifted, energetic, and creative. Furthermore, it is not an overpowering high, meaning it is a good choice for daytime use.
These properties also make it an excellent choice for those who are dealing with stress or chronic pain. Some also say that it can help with depression and appetite problems. However, as it is energising, those who suffer from anxiety may find that it is not the best choice. Users can also expect a sense of dry mouth and eyes.
American Dream is usually grown indoors or in a greenhouse. It grows like a typical indica plant, meaning that it is short and bushy. Ideally, it should be grown using the “sea of green” method and according to Sensi Star, it takes around 40 to 45 days to finish flowering. It should then produce a medium to above average yield.
