Originating in Amsterdam and currently bred by Dinafem Seeds, Moby Dick has a high THC content makes it one of the strongest sativas. Winner of ‘Girl of the Year’ by the cannabis newspaper Soft Secrets in 2010, this strain is a cross between indica-dominant hybrid White Widow and sativa Haze; the former is known for its power while the latter for its cerebral stimulation, creating a mostly sativa plant that delivers a charged buzz. This strain is also favored for its short flowering period, mold resistance, and high yield, making it a grower favorite. However, the plant does require more attention and care. The aroma is a sweet citrus from the Haze, which dominates the palate with vanilla and eucalyptus tones.
Moby Dick is a sativa-dominant hybrid (sativa/indica ratio of 75:25) created by crossing White Widow, an indica-dominant hybrid, and Haze, a pure sativa. THC levels are high, topping 21% in some tests. CBD values are very low, less than 1%, making this a poor choice for patients who suffer from epilepsy or other conditions that respond to this cannabinoid. The heavy sativa genes create a strongly euphoric, creative high with an upbeat mood. The effects are great in treating depression, anxiety, pain, and muscle spasms. Moby Dick can also alleviate lack of appetite. The overall effect is clear-headed but relaxing. The dominant smell and flavor when smoking Moby Dick is citrusy. This strain also has an earthy lemon taste and a sweet floral aroma. Dry mouth is the most common side effect, along with bloodshot eyes. Paranoia is also possible. Moby Dick is a relatively popular strain, available on several legal medical marijuana markets. It’s probably easiest to find in Arizona, Colorado, and parts of Europe. This strain gets its name from its massive yields when harvested, as much as 1,500 grams per square meter.
