Democratic DaggaIts name might sound a little bit off the wall, but there’s nothing silly about this strain. Not one to mess about, it’ll whack you straight in the dome and then stick around a while to relax your aching muscles. We have a sneaking suspicion that this is what Barry O was smokin’ before he took office. As with anything based on the legendary Jack Herer, the head-high is potent and the potential for stress-relief is immense.
We’ve seen a sharp increase in demand for strains that offer both physical and mental remediation, and that’s precisely why we decided to splice the aforementioned strain with Afghan Kush, which is second to none in terms of its unique painkilling properties. The result of this meticulous breeding program has created a true 50/50 strain that can be enjoyed at any time of day. So if you’re looking for an easy, quick-growing variety, why not try this balanced autoflowering strain on for size!
Jack Herer is a famous Sativa-dominant pick-me-up whose euphoric shot hits right between the eyes. Its ushers in a cheerful and happy high that’s great for people who need to stay active and on the go, and it’s even said to relieve mental health concerns such as depression and stress. Pretty much anyone who knows anything about weed has heard stories about the Jack Herer strain (and, of course, about the man it was named after) and it’s now one of the most famous (or infamous!) buds ever created. One thing’s for sure – once you’ve tried it, you’ll never look back!
Then there’s Auto Bluebery. This melting pot of landraces descends from a long line of potent strains that can be traced back to Asia. Its fruity kick is great for those who crave a relaxing and tasty treat at the end of a long day at work. With the legendary Afghani providing its Indica strength, it won't give up until every single muscle is free of tension.
Put ‘em together in the mixing pot and you get Democratic Dagga – a well-rounded strain that’ll leave you feeling anything but blue. A perfect daytime toke, it provides a balanced mind and body buzz that’ll keep you feeling positive and motivated for hours on end. As a true half-and-half ganja, it’ll give you the very best of both worlds.
Although this budchild not as famous as its parents yet, it’s well on its way to achieving superstardom. Thanks to these autoflowering beans from United Strains of America, aspiring gardeners can achieve great results even if they have no prior experience. The plants grow quickly and vigorously, and they’re sturdy enough to withstand many of the common mistakes made by newbies. When harvest time arrives, you’ll get a batch of buds of the same quality and potency you’d expect from a photoperiod. And that fact alone makes it a strain worthy of your vote!
How to Grow Democratic Dagga
Democratic Dagga is a tough and resilient little mofo that takes mold, pests and disease in its stride. Thanks to its compact stature, it can be grown in small spaces, and because it’s so sturdy, even inexperienced hands can handle it with ease.
From germination to harvest takes only 10 weeks, and about 6 to 7 of those are spent flowering and fattening up the buds. Indoors, you can use either hydroponics or soil and get equally good results, so there’s no need to make any additional provisions. If you’re growing four or more of these plants simultaneously, arranging them in a Sea of Green set-up will lead to a bountiful yield to the tune of 0.8 ounces of buds per square foot come harvest-time. While that’s not as big as some other plants, it’s not at all bad for an auto.
Outdoors, Democratic Dagga’s output is not as prolific, but its speed of growth means you can offset this by collecting at least two harvests in a year. Each plant will produce anything from 1.75 to 5.25 ounces, and the final harvest must take place by the end of October.
Flavor and Bouquet
The trichome-rich buds have an awesome aroma and flavor profile consisting of a pungent lemon scent and lashings of moist, earthy soil. When you fire them up, a spicy pine aroma will warm your nostrils. The Blueberry influence is strikingly evident in the taste, which tickles the palate with a heady blend of mixed berries, citrus and pine. Sweet, fruity and slightly sour, you’re guaranteed an explosion of flavors in every hit.
If you’re seeking a satisfying smoke to enjoy during the daytime, Democratic Dagga could be just what you’re looking for. The experience starts with a mild yet satisfying cerebral buzz coupled with a blissful, mood-enhancing head-rush. Stresses and worries will dissipate as quickly as they arrived, and the noticeable increase in energy will help keep you active for many hours. Writers, musicians and artists are likely to experience a sudden boost in creativity, which makes completing a masterpiece feel more like taking a stroll in the park.
As well as being mentally energizing, Democratic Dagga provides a physically-relaxing buzz that prevents things from getting too crazy. Its calming comfort is just enough to tone down the initial effects, which means you’re unlikely to feel overzealous or jumpy. It’s strong enough to banish tension and muscle tightness, but is unlikely to cause couch-lock. Still, you’re advised to go low and slow – if you take a small amount, you’ll still be able to blast through your to-do list, but if you overindulge, you’ll be too high to focus on the tasks at hand.
It’s also a fast-acting medicinal strain. Its mood-enhancing traits could be a godsend to people suffering from depression, chronic stress, PTSD and anxiety, while helping those slowed down by fatigue to function with renewed vitality. Its voracious ‘munchies’ effect has its benefits too – people suffering from appetite loss, nausea and vomiting may find themselves able to enjoy food again.
Pain and discomfort stand no chance against this toughie either. Symptoms of arthritis, PMS, eye pressure and migraines may temporarily melt away, leaving you free to go about your day with a spring in your step. As long as you don’t go overboard, you can enjoy the medicinal effects while still remaining functional, but there’s a fine line – take too much and you’ll be soaring above the clouds for hours on end!
The Final Word…
To sum up, Democratic Dagga is a strain that ticks all the boxes whether you’re looking for medicinal effects, a recreational high, a delicious flavor or ease of growth. While the yields may be on the small side, a little bit of this potent plant goes a very long way. It just might be the best strain you’ve never heard of!
