Dirty Sprite is a strain of cannabis developed by a team from California called Blackleaf. There is little information about the genetic composition of the strain since the team has decided to keep it a secret.
On smoking, the strain has sweet, citrus notes combined with a musky, earthy flavor. Many users say that the aroma of the strain is too sweet for them. Some say that aroma just adds to the flavor when smoked. The high induces calm and euphoric relaxation. It is also used for pain relief. After testing the strain, the percentage of THC is 17.1% and has a total of 18.1% cannabinoids.
Dirty Sprite has medicinal uses for treating depression as it can uplift someone’s mood. The high causes instant relaxation. People who have smoked this strain say that it does not cause much anxiety. The euphoric effect, however, is strong enough to hamper alertness. Treating conditions like depression, insomnia, pain relief, etc. is a common use of this strain.
