Selling its fantastic and feminised seeds, it is no surprise that Nirvana Seeds decided to name this strain ‘Wonder Woman’. Born from crossing the 1998 Cannabis Cup winning Ice strain with a hybrid composed of Skunk and Afghani genes, Wonder Woman was always destined for greatness. Luckily, Nirvana Seeds made the most of their fantastic formula to create the strain we have before us today.
Still in demand after its recognition in the late nineties, Wonder Woman has no need to look back on her past glory days as she remains a firm favourite with veteran smokers and casual users alike.
Wonder Woman is a very well balanced hybrid that generally measures 60% sativa and 40% indica. Its 16-20% THC levels provide enough potency to let you feel the richness of its effects, yet without the excess weight that can see a little go too far too quickly.
This is especially relevant for regular or heavy smokers, with veteran cannabis aficionados often claiming that it is difficult to build a tolerance to Wonder Woman. Unlike so many other strains, this is one lady that will not let you down.
Being lucky enough to possess both quality genetics and a near-equal sativa-indica distribution, it is no surprise Wonder Woman offers a very enjoyable smoke. This is, above all, a relaxing strain for both body and mind. It will see you unwinding in gentle bliss as wave after wave of tension is washed from your body with ease.
This is no basic couch-locking and mind-numbing experience, however, as Wonder Woman pairs this tranquillity with an uplifting sense of motivation and focus. This means that our golden girl may even help you unwind as you’re cleaning the dishes or filling out those forms for the bank. She may even help you start the day right, paired with a coffee for an instant smile and sunny disposition.
In the evening Wonder Woman may even help you banish your worries, calm your mind, and see you drift peacefully to sleep. But for those who wish to see what the strain can do for them between waking and sleeping, experimenting with various quantities may see you reach a point of creative inspiration paired with a gentle euphoria.
Medicinal users will appreciate the perfect ratio of THC to CBD which will see it potentially effective against depression, stress and anxiety.
Wonder Woman is no small yielder, she grows big, glistening buds and putting her in a Sea of Green (SoG) setup will see you net 600g per m2 of quality bud.
Despite having a large chunk of its genes in the sativa camp, visually Wonder Woman is straight-up indica and will only reach 2-3ft in height. Its shape and growing habits, however, may betray its sativa heritage to the trained eye.
Indoor growing is generally recommended for Wonder Woman, allowing her to show her better side in nearly all aspects, including THC production. The plant will take 9 to 11 weeks to flower, thriving in a hydroponic setup or the SoG previously mentioned. It will be fairly forgiving of newbie mistakes too, with its easy-going genetics making this a good strain to practise your cultivation skills on.
This not only makes her a great choice for beginners but veteran growers too, its resilience and reliable nature earning it countless fans. This resilience will also see Wonder Woman able to grow outside, especially in a greenhouse, provided it is not too humid. While any sign of such humidity will not be appreciated by the strain due to increased mold, conversely providing a Mediterranean style environment will see it giving the biggest rock-hard buds you’re likely to find, all easily trimmed off and ready to cure.
Those of you with a delicate sense of taste will be able to experience the strain’s unusual but enticing mixture of flavours. Wonder Woman will present a diesel type taste mixed in with a lemony citrus to give a sweet and lasting flavour. This is especially pronounced on the exhale, mixed in among the harsh smoke.
Wonder Woman is one skunky strain, with close attention to its scent revealing hints of diesel and even a trace of fruitiness. The strength of the scent varies plant by plant, with some being pungent enough for scent filtering measures to be necessary.
Visually the strain has a tight flowering structure to the bud which gives it a satisfying density. This is paired with a surface so resinous that some nearby soap and water is advised before handling. This stickiness will mean a good grinder is advised for the best experience.
Sparkling among the stickiness, however, is a dusting of bright trichomes that add an alluring finish to the strain.
