Mango has about 15% to 18% THC together with approximately 1% CBD. It’s strong enough to act quickly and effectively on pain and negative emotional states. But is still likely to be within the average person’s comfort zone. The high is what you might call an Indica high. Which is to say blissfully mellow rather than energetically euphoric as you would expect from Sativas. This is followed by a deep and beautifully-relaxing stone. So this strain is probably best kept for night-time use. You could try using Mango in cannabis edibles and/or cannabis topicals, so you can micro dose in the day time. Mango is also a good option for more niche uses such as beauty treatments. Since its balance of THC and CBD is effective on a wide range of skin conditions.
When it comes to yield, there is a noticeable difference between what you can expect from cultivating it indoors as compared to cultivating them outdoors. Indoor growers can expect up to 500 g/m2. While outdoor growers could collect up to 750g.This is because Mango plants tend to have an indoor minimum height of about 1M. Whereas outdoors they can grow up to a maximum height of about 1.8M. This extra height means there is more space for buds, hence the bigger yields.
While harvests are average, the plants are both compact and quick for photoperiod strains. Plus, they have lots of landrace genetics for robustness and that delicious mango taste.
Indoors Mango needs 8 to 10 weeks of flowering time, which is standard for photoperiod Indicas. Outdoors you’ll be collecting your harvest in late September.
As well as being a fairly-compact strain, it naturally grows into the standard Indica “Christmas tree” shape. This gives itself some protection against the wind.
We’ve classed Mango as a moderately difficult grow mainly because of the fact that it’s a photoperiod strain. The Afghani parentage gives it good resistance to just about everything except bad weather. It wouldn’t be our first choice for a total beginner, but we wouldn’t rule it out either. Even though Mango is compact it is quite amenable to plant training. Some forms of plant training can help to push up its yield.
As the name suggests you’ll taste delicious sweet mango and lots of other tropical fruits. There’s more than a hint of papaya together with a splash of citrus lemon to stop it from getting too sweet. The aroma isn’t so clearly mango, although the main element is still tropical fruit. The lemon is still there for citrus freshness and it’s all grounded by earthiness.
Mango can take on touches of purple and have yellow hairs, so they actually look a bit like mangoes. Throw in a covering of sparkling trichomes and you have one pretty strain. And that’s even before you start breathing in that gorgeous mango fragrance.
