Living up to its name, Red Dragon is an exotic Asian flower that crosses Himalayan Kush with Utopian Haze. The Sativa genes are dominant in this hybrid, which has a Sativa/Indica ratio of between 60:40 and 70:30.
THC levels, which top 16% in available tests, are high enough to deliver effective medical treatment yet low enough to appeal to first-time patients and occasional smokers. Even so, the side effects of this strain can be powerful, especially the paranoia, so patients with anxiety may want to avoid this strain.
Still, it’s an excellent tool for relieving depression, inflammation, migraine headaches, mood disorders, nausea, pain, and insomnia. It’s a less helpful tool in fighting seizures and other conditions that require CBD since that chemical is scarce in Red Dragon.
The high the strain produces is euphoric and happy yet sleepy and powerfully hungry, making it a good tool for alleviating wasting and eating disorders. The smell is spicy yet sweet and woody, while the flavor is similar. In addition to widely reported paranoia and anxiety, dry mouth, dry eyes, and dizziness are also possible side effects
