El Muerte, also known as “The Death,” is an indica dominant hybrid strain (70% indica/30% sativa) created through crossing the potent Death Bubba X another unknown indica dominant strain. Although its parentage isn’t fully known, El Muerte is a favorite of breeders and patients alike for its high level of potency and super heavy effects. The high comes on fast and hard, smashing into your brain almost as soon as you exhale with a lifted sense of cerebral energy. This energy quickly fades away, replaced by an unfocused haziness that can have you feeling slightly sleepy at times. As your mind fades in and out, a heavy body high will begin to creep into your limbs, locking you to the couch and leaving you fully sedated before you know it. With these hard-hitting effects and its high 23-28% average THC level, El Muerte is often chosen to treat chronic pain, insomnia, arthritis and headaches or migraines. This bud has a classic fruity flavor with hints of skunky diesel and spicy herbs. The aroma is very similar, although heavily pungent and earthy, too. El Muerte buds have grape-shaped forest green nugs with lots of thin amber hairs and a coating of tiny frosty white amber-tinted crystal trichomes.
