The Chernobyl strain is known for its dual heavy-hitting and calming effects on both the mind and body. Although Chernobyl is a sativa-dominant hybrid, the strain is only slightly leaning to the sativa side. There is still a fair amount of indica in the genetics, which adds a pain relief element not usually found in sativa-dominant strains. As such, this is a go-to strain for many MMJ patients in search of a bold terpene profile, and it has a unique ability to help combat a variety of mental disorders. Chernobyl produces a long-lasting, potent high (2-3 hours) that is a bit creeper as the high comes in waves. The smoke has a smooth, deep flavor that is very reminiscent of the smell. There was a lot of citrus flavor on the inhale, and an earthy, skunky, smooth, danky taste on the exhale. The rather enjoyable taste continues to linger on the palate for some time.
