With origins in southern California, Louis XIII is thought to have come about as a crossbreed of OG Kush and LA Confidential. Louis XIII nugs possess a classically OG appearance, small, dense, and light green with orange pistils and honeyed trichomes. Growers can expect a 9-10 week growing cycle and abundant, quality yield. This strain is best reserved for intermediate to advanced growers.
This heavy, indica-dominant hybrid has been a favorite phenotype of OG Kush connoisseurs for decades. Much of the acclaim lies in the strain’s relaxing yet uplifting mental kick which melts into a long-lasting, full-body buzz. Although at onset this strain offers pleasantly spacey mind-warping cerebrals, what truly stands about its medicine is the blissfully seductive full-body relaxation it provides. Louis XIII is equal parts euphoria, calm, and drowsiness, making it the perfect precursor to an evening of rest, recovery and relaxation. Late evening use is suggested due to its marked narcotic effects. The gentle euphoria will make you not want to leave the house, so get settled for a movie and some snacking on this lovely, lazy indica.
Louis XIII shines in any circumstance that calls for deep sedation. Users find the heavy body high exceptionally soothing, making this one of the best strains for insomnia. Combined with a cleanly sedating strain like Afghani will ensure that Louis XII’s pleasant cerebrals won’t keep the mind engaged. That said, most who use Louis XIII for sleeplessness don’t find this to be a problem at higher doses. This is also a fabulous option for those suffering from anxiety. Nothing soothes the nervous system quite like a potent dose of this sublime medicine. What is best about this strain is its ability to distract the mind and ground the user in their body. Body awareness is enhanced on this strain while any discomfort is pleasantly masked. All one is left with is the pleasantly euphoric full body buzz. For this reason, Louis XIII can effectively reduce muscle tension and muscle spasms. Athletic recovery is enhanced on this strain, particularly when combined with a high CBD option.
