Marilyn Monroe Strain
Like the famed singer, Marilyn Monroe marijuana is highly prized and one of a kind. It is a cross between JFK (AK47 X Juicy Fruit) and Mothers Finest (a Haze heavy strain that descended from Jack Herer). With such an impressive parentage, the strain was always going to be a one-hit wonder and it most certainly does not disappoint, the only downside being that the strain is very difficult to find. It is a house signature strain that is only available from BMCC (Boulder Medical Marijuana Center). It is a much sought-after strain medically as well as recreationally, though is really available only in California and Colorado at this stage. It is an Indica dominant strain with super dense trichomes and lots of orange-brown pistils with a dark green color. The taste is predominantly of strawberries which is just as strong as the smell, which is similarly strong and pleasant. Even though it is said to be an Indica heavy hybrid it hits more like a potent Haze or the psychoactive Thai flowers. Many users also indicate that the high is reminiscent of Blue Dream, which is very powerful and cerebral but simultaneously very clear and energetic, with little heavy after effects. Marilyn Monroe is a clean strain of marijuana that is a smooth smoke, with a lovely taste and smell and a powerful yet clean hit. For these reasons, this strain is a favorite among medical and recreational patients and is a must try for all cannabis connoisseurs. It has massive THC levels that range between 20-25% so is a strain for veterans only. The exact ratio of Indica to Sativa is unknown, said to be highly Indica dominant from reports and the genetics but delivering powerful Sativa related cerebral effects.
Why do Patients Use Marilyn Monroe?
Marilyn Monroe is not a common strain medically or on the black market, but can be found in some dispensaries in Colorado and California. This is an explosively powerful strain of marijuana to be prescribed with caution, as both the Indica and Sativa effects are quite strong. This strain can be psychoactive for many, with reports of increase auditory and visual perceptions. This strain is useful for the treatment of mental conditions including ADHD, depression, Bi-Polar and Schizophrenia, as well as anxiety. It is also used for instances of chronic pain, making it a truly rare and versatile strain of marijuana. Yet at the same time, it has to be carefully prescribed due to its high THC content and many side effects, so it truly is a mixed bag.
