Route 66 Strain
Route 66 is a 50/50 hybrid that is more commonly known as Jolly Rancher (Some variants of this strain may be slightly Sativa dominant). Route 66 is popular in dispensaries in California and its name and initial appeal lie primarily in Jolly Rancher’s sour candied aroma, although there’s also something to be said about its high-flying euphoria and colorful buds. Coated with a sticky layer of sugar-like resin, Jolly Rancher is a treat for all the senses. The high comes on very quickly with this strain and the effects are mainly cerebral as opposed to the whole body. It is an ideal strain for those with social anxiety or for anxiety in general. THC levels of this strain of marijuana are unknown, with some claims that THC levels can be up to 25%. This claim does not match the majority of anecdotal evidence, with some saying the effects are powerful but definitely not as powerful as 25%. However, the strain does seem to get more potent as time goes by.
