Apollo 11 is a hybrid cannabis strain that was developed by Brother’s Grimm Seeds through the crossing of Jack Herer and Cinderella 99. The strain is known for being very quick to grow, as little as 7 or 8 weeks, and it has a distinctive earthy, lemon aroma that also has a subtle sweetness and hints of spicy wood. Apollo 11’s average THC levels are in the range of 16% to 20%, making it a moderately potent strain.
Apollo 11’s flavour is similar to its aroma with strong citrus tastes as well as wood. The strain is popular with those who want to relax during the daytime. It has a strong cerebral effect that is highly uplifting and leaves people feeling blissfully happy. Often, the effect is referred to as “out of this world”.
The strain is also popular with medicinal users. It can help with conditions such as stress, depression and anxiety. Furthermore, many have found it to help with pain relief, in particular for migraines or muscle aches. In regular doses, the only negative side effects likely are dry mouth and eye; however, in large enough doses it can also lead to dizziness and mild anxiety or paranoia.
Apollo 11 is considered a moderately difficult strain to grow, but it is perfect for those in a rush, as it has been known to flower as quickly as six weeks. It can take a little longer, but it will nearly always deliver a good yield before 8 weeks. The plant can be grown both indoors and outdoors in a temperate climate.
