Mostly sativa, a crossbreed of Granddaddy Purps and Platinum Cookies. Those genes make for an upbeat, stimulating high that spurs creativity and provides energy for daytime tasks. Euphoria is the prominent effect when smoking Candyland, with a strong mood boost and some relaxation. The exact sativa-to-indica ratio of this strain is unclear, but it contains as much as 29% THC, making it a fairly powerful choice. CBD levels are lower but could still be useful in treating seizures and other conditions. Candyland as a strong sweet flavor and smell, with an earthy, spicy undertone.
It’s an ideal strain for treating anxiety and depression, along with bipolar disorder, chronic pain, and ADHD. Dry mouth is a distinct possibility, as are dry eyes and dizziness, while paranoia is less likely. Best for daytime activities, Candyland is a sweet treat any time of day. It’s most popular on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in Michigan.
The strain is great for social functions or creative activities – anything where your brain must be active and engaged. When consumed in larger quantities, and especially by novice users, the strain can impact anxiety and paranoia as is typical with strong Sativa strains.
