Appalachian Power is a sativa strain of cannabis that is a cross of Appalachia and The Power. It is a tall plant with large spade-shaped leaves that are covered by frosty white trichomes and it gives off a strong smell of grapes, bananas, pineapple and a hint of skunk.
Many of the aromas are also present in the taste and when exhaled, tropical favors with hints of citrus are evident. It provides a very fast hitting high that begins with pressure around the eyes and temples. This pressure transforms into a burst of energy that clears the mind of negativity. It is a very long lasting high but when it does eventually start to wear off, the relaxing physical effects become apparent.
Due to its potency, Appalachian Power is often used by those who suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD and bipolar disorder. Its energizing effect will help to stabilize the mood and rid people of negative emotions. It can also help those with ADD or ADHD as it can boost focus and concentration. In excess though, the strain is likely to result in dry mouth and eyes, headaches, and possibly mild paranoia.
Appalachian Power is best grown using a hydroponics setup. It will flourish when given lots of light but does not need much fertilizer. It does not favor high humidity and the temperature should not be more than 85F.
Appalachian Power is an ideal choice for those who are looking for a strain suitable for morning and afternoon use that will leave them energized.
