Named after the sexy United Kingdom Television Babe, Karina Currie, the Karina strain is a bomb strain by PornoSeeds. It was spawned by the union of Haiti and India, giving it an even distribution of sativa and indica genes. Covered by sticky resins, it can be grown indoors and outdoors.
The strain presents an incredible mix of sweetness, skunk, mango, cheese, and pungency overpowered by classic haze. The euphoric high it delivers is totally out of this world. It starts off by unleashing its powerful cerebral effects that will make the user trippy. The buzz sweeps out the shadows in the user’s mind, allowing clear vision and a higher level of concentration. After the rush, the body will become enveloped by tranquillity, which leads to a satisfying body stone.
The balanced effects are best for chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, chronic stress, PTSD, mood swings, and bipolar disorder. It greatly aids in stabilizing and uplifting the mood and removing feelings of uselessness and hopelessness. Physically, it can relieve muscle tensions, muscle spasms, inflammation, neck pain, and back pain. It can also help people struggling with the loss of appetite and sleep.
The strain might have balanced indica and sativa effects, but excessive smoking will lead to an imbalance in the equilibrium. If you take it beyond your tolerance, the relaxing qualities will just be the calm before the storm. On the lighter side, the strain can induce dry mouth, eyes, and throat. Consider yourself lucky if these are the only things you experience. The strain is also notorious for leaving the user anxious, paranoid, and extremely tired.
The strain is not recommended for novice growers as it will need a lot of attention. It can produce three phenotypes. Two are tall and mostly sativa, and the third one is dominated by indica genes, which grow smaller. This makes it a good candidate for Low-Stress Training (LST). It requires protection from the rain or snow, so though it can be grown outdoors, indoor growing is more recommended.
