Appalachian Power came into existence by combining the equally potent strains, The Appalachian and The Power. True to its name, Appalachian Power is a powerhouse of Grape Punch, Life Saver, Island Sweet Skunk, and White Widow. With dominant sativa genes, it grows to a tall plant with huge, spade-shaped leaves covered by frosty and vibrant white trichomes. The plant gives off a scent of grapes, bananas and pineapple with a hint of earthy skunk.
Appalachian Power is a mix of fresh grape, banana, and pineapple fruits. The delectable sweetness can be tasted upon inhalation. On the exhale, you will taste skunky, tropical flavors with hints of citrus. The high is just as promising as the aroma and taste. It will hit you before you know it with just a few puffs. Pressure around the eyes and from the temples can be felt. This pressure eventually becomes a huge burst of energy which cleans up the mind of negative thoughts and emotions. It will launch you to a place as high and as beautiful as the Appalachian National Scenic Trail in the Eastern United States. The effect is also as long as the trail. As the mental effects wane, the relaxing physical effects become apparent.
Appalachian Power’s potency is highly recommended for people suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD and bipolar disorder. Its energizing effects can easily wipe away bad mood and feelings of hopelessness that these patients usually face on a day to day basis. The strain is also helpful for people with ADD and ADHD as it can increase their focus and concentration.
When taken excessively, Appalachian Power can deliver negative effects as fast as its positive ones. Adverse reactions include cotton mouth, dry eyes, headache, and paranoia.
Appalachian Power will definitely love the hydroponics setup. It also loves lots of light. In terms of fertilizer, feeding should only be light. Organic fertilizers are a must. The humidity should only be around 55 – 65 percent RH, while the temperature should not go beyond 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
