Bud Buzz: Vortex strain is a cannabis strain that lives up to its name. It takes you to new heights of euphoria and elation, allows you to focus on just about anything and those effects are fairly long lasting for a Sativa hybrid, a few bong hits will do for even the most seasoned cannabis connoisseurs for at least three hours or more. Vortex buds are very bright green, covered with trichomes and the smell and taste are very spicy and tropical. The smell is intense and delicious, however unless you have a very private smoke spot, your neighbors may not feel the same so keep that in mind before you light up.
Vortex, like a good hybrid, provides you with the benefits of both a Sativa and Indica however you will first feel the Sativa with a very cerebral all-encompassing buzz. For experienced stoners who want to take things to the next level, you can take a few more hits and feel even more mentally charged and elevated. One caution for newbies with this strain, if you are at all prone to or concerned about anxiety or paranoia, start slow and wait at least 30 minutes before you smoke more. Yes this cannabis strain is that intense! As the hours pass the Indica element of this strain will leave you feeling relaxed and happy.
It is a perfect daytime into evening strain for those who want to take their high, to new heights and see what creative things they are truly capable of doing. A great brainstorming and problem solving cannabis strain. Perfect for increasing energy levels, unlocking creative thoughts and dealing with depression. A good strain for mild pain management and fatigue. Good things do come with some negatives and Vortex is no exception. You can expect dry mouth, dry eyes and again, this strain may not be for newbies or those concerned about paranoia. Unless you have a high tolerance, start slow.
Drinkables– Liquids are a must and starting your hydration before your start your buzz just makes good stoner sense. So throw back a glass of water as you are prepping your bong. Once you are good and high, move to more flavorful liquids like sweet tea or a flavored sparkling water. You may even want to try a few hard candies just to keep those salivary glands working, the more tart the flavor, the better.
Munchables– Vortex doesn’t really cause out of control munchies but you will definitely want to keep some snacks on hand to fuel your creative pursuits. Think cheese and fruit, or peanut butter, almond butter or honey on bread or celery. If you need more of a substantial treat, think pasta with some olive oil and veggies, to keep things somewhat healthy.
Doables– This cannabis strain will inspire you to be your best creative self and you should definitely try to take advantage of the happy energy Vortex provides. You can be social if you want as conversation is relatively easy, even for those with social anxiety. If you suffer from writer’s block or painter’s block, Vortex is the strain for you. It takes about 30 minutes for you to really hit that productive stride so enjoy the journey before you unleash your creative genius.
