About this Hybrid Strain

The top-ranking sativa-dominant hybrid strain Chernobyl has a distinct lime-sherbet smell that tastes citrusy with some reviewers reporting a lemony aftertaste. Its buds are a light green when ready for harvest that can appear whitened with trichomes and covered in orange pistils.

Its THC content averages at 13-14% and can top off at 18%. Many describe its high as creating a strong euphoria mixed with an energetic boost, often eliminating negative thoughts and replacing them with a lovely contentment. It will cause the consumer to feel happy, creative, and relaxed, making it a perfect strain used anytime throughout the day – especially if pursuing hobbies or creative work. Negative side-effects include the normal dry mouth and eyes, but paranoia has definitely been known to strike the consumer if the strain is consumed improperly.

Chernobyl was ranked as one of the Top 10 Strains of 2010 by High Times for its unique and distinct properties.

Growers must prune Chernobyl regularly and each plant will need extra support once flowering begins.

History

It derives its name from the disaster that occurred in 1986 when the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Pripyat, Ukraine exploded and released radioactive particles – meaning this strain is highly potent in its high. Its parents are a female cross-breed of the hybrid Trainwreck and sativa Trinity with the male sativa Jack the Ripper.

Lineage

Story

Bred by TGA/Subcool, the female used to breed Chernobyl was from a seed Subcool found in a sample of Trainwreck he got from a grower called Smokescreen.

Story

This was the first experience with this strain for most of our crew, and it was thought to be an overall very pleasant experience, suitable for getting some work done or exercising a creative muscle. Its lasting effects with a long linger and very solid initial potency made up for the somewhat lacking taste and smell, which were just not particularly pungent or memorable. The minor grow flaws took this one down a notch, and we’d like to see it in perfect condition… but it was still very nice to look at and provided an easy, enjoyable experience.

Appearance

Claw-shaped dingley green sepals arranged in open stacked calyxes, with bursts of copper pisitls, and average coverage by average-length, thin-stalked trichomes with small heads

Aroma

This strain had a rather light smell that had a floral citrus quality to it, with some piney sharpness coming out after grinding. It was pleasant but not very pungent, a soft Sativa smell.

Flavor

While one reviewer really liked the flavor of this sample, the majority of us felt it was simply average in the taste area, with a piney citrus flavor that wasn’t remarkable. Though it wasn’t pungent or overtly flavorful, it was a rather smooth smoke that didn’t expand much, making it a good choice for patients who don’t wish to cough.

Qualities

Though it started off with a collection of head, eye, and chest pressure effects, we had some divergent opinions depending on which time of day we medicated. One reviewer who medicated early in the morning got a very potent-feeling package of cerebral effects that included some visual and auditory distortions. The other reviewers who medicated later in the day had more of a relaxing experience, with only a slight uptick in physical energy to start and a pervading mental energy that kept up throughout the experience. As it diminished entering 2 hours, a fairly typical “Sativa crash” had us feeling a bit groggy but still functional.
