The Biscotti strain is an Indica-dominant known for its relaxing effects. This pretty, unique strain is characterized by its lovely dark green and orange buds, rich with kief and trichomes. Biscotti, also known as “twice baked” in Italian, refers to cookies and slices of bread that are light, crispy, and sweet–making this a perfect name for this strain.
Biscotti was created by mixing a blend of the classic, popular strains Girl Scout Cookies, Gelato #25, and Sour Florida OG. It was first bred by Connected Cannabis, a brand well-respected for its expert genetics. It’s a high THC strain, ranging from around 20-25%.
Its terpene profile includes beta-caryophyllene, limonene, myrcene, alpha-humulene, valencene, and linalool, which give it a delicious sweet, nutty, and earthy flavor with hints of spice.
As an Indica strain, Biscotti is revered for its calming, creative, and giggly effects. It comes on slowly but results in a powerful high, so it’s advised to start small and give the effects some time to set in before using more. Biscotti has a strong body feel and a pleasant cerebral buzz, making it a great option for all-around relaxation.
The effects of the Biscotti strain are ideal for treating physical and mental health issues including chronic pain, insomnia, stress, anxiety, migraines, and depression. It calms racing thoughts and restlessness, lightens emotions, and increases sociability with others.
