The Anesthesia strain of cannabis was created by the breeder Whazzup in 2007 in an attempt to extend the lifetime of the Afghani Skunk strain, which was only available as a cutting from another plant at the time. Whazzup combined the Herojuana strain with the classic Afghan Skunk strain to give birth to Anesthesia.
The Anesthesia strain was selected as “Breeder’s Choice” Selection by Sannie’s Seeds, a Dutch seed company. Its Afghan heritage renders a musky, earthy smell to it. True to its name, it works as an effective pain reliever and shows other sedation effects common for Indica.
Anesthesia is a wonderful cannabis strain for individuals looking for pain relief and sedatory effects. If you have been seeking a cannabis strain that can help you deal with the pain experienced during recovery after an injury or due to a chronic medical condition, Anesthesia is the strain you should try out.
