The Viper Strain Experience
Viper is a sativa strain with a serious sting. With as much potency as it has bag appeal, this is a strain worth seeking out. It can also enhance daytime activities ranging from an outdoor hike to an afternoon taking care of things around the house.
Viper carries a tangy and slightly astringent scent of orange, somewhat like artificially-scented cleaning products. There’s also a grassy, herbal undertone reminiscent of sage. Grinding up the buds reveals strong notes of hash and spice, possibly due to the strain’s Southeast Asian lineage. When burnt, the strain gives off a smooth, palpable smoke. And tasting like citrus and pepper on the exhale.
Viper doesn’t need much time before it strikes with strong, head-focused effects. Shortly after breathing out its orange-tinged smoke, smokers may feel a rush of blood to the head, characterized by a sudden pressure in the temples; many even note an increase in salivation.
What follows is a sudden change in the user’s thinking, with thoughts moving more quickly and jumping around in free association. Additionally, these activated mental effects make this a great strain to enjoy while working on complex, work-related tasks, as well as on more open-ended creative projects like brainstorming.
This bud’s ability to amplify internal monologues also makes it a good way to spark conversation in social settings. Moreover, the buzzy effects tend not to be tempered by any strong physical sedation. Even as time passes or as the dosage is increased, the strain’s energy persists.
The upbeat effects give it several applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Additionally, its lasting feeling of focus can help those with attention deficit disorders to stay tuned in to a single task. Its mild euphoria can also help to take the edge off of mild to moderate stress and depression.
Viper can also soothe some physical pain and its anti-inflammatory properties may help with headaches, nausea, and cramps. Because its onset is associated with some strong, recursive patterns of thinking, its not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia, or who have a low tolerance for THC.
