Sputnik Strain

Sputnik adds to the space-theme of its parent strains. Crossed with Apollo 13 and Black Russian, this is a strain named after the Russian satellite propelled into fast orbit around the planet back in 1957. The sweet, fruity aroma of Sputnik does not really match its taste. On exhale, this strain hints of a sour diesel. Sputnik is extremely popular among patients seeking relief from a variety of medical conditions.

This Sativa-dominant hybrid has deliciously dense buds dark olive green in color with rich undertones of amber. Fiery orange and deep purple hairs spatter the buds, which also contain thick layers of white crystal trichomes. Effects are slow to build, and they are physically mellowing with a powerful cerebral high. Sputnik is a mild sedative that can cause couchlock and munchies if overconsumed.

Why Patients Use Sputnik?

Patients love Sativa-dominant strains. In Sputnik, they find a euphoric buzz with an abundance of energy. This relaxing, happy strain boosts mind, body, and mood. It has a tingly sensation to it that patients find soothing and calming. The biggest love that patients have for Sputnik is its suitability for daytime use. Patients have the energy and motivation to accomplish their daily tasks pain-free.
