With massive buds and massive THC levels, it seems fitting that the Moby Dick strain would be named after one of the planet’s most massive mammals, the whale.

An award-winning strain, this weed has been on the recreational user and medical patient radar for quite a long time. Its genetic heritage is responsible for it being such a wonderfully balanced mix of flavour, aromas, and beautiful buds.

What Is the Moby Dick Marijuana Strain?

Originally created by crossbreeding White Widow Strain with Sativa Haze. These two iconic strains all on their own were morphed into a genetic masterpiece by a genius from Amsterdam of course. They are now popular all over the world, with medical and recreational cannabis consumers.

This strain is mostly a Sativa with some minor Indica genetics thrown in for good measure. Its high cannabinoid content, ie. its THC levels are what makes Moby Dick so world-famous. It is one of the strongest traditional strains sold in the cannabis seed marketplace. Its potency is colossal like a whale, ranking in at an average of 27% in verified lab tests, with a generous amount of the compound THCV, which can produce mildly psychoactive effects.

Aroma, Flavour and Appearance

Much like its Haze genetics, Moby Dick gives off pleasant and delightful citrus aromas. To accent this it also has hints of eucalyptus and vanilla, which it inherits from the White Widow strain. The overall pairing of these aromas generates a unique and intriguing combination, that has become the go-to strain of many smokers.

The flavour is much like its smell, with some extra added elements that make it slightly more intense than the aroma. The flavour of sour lemons is that much more noticeable but gets tamed with sweet and creamy vanilla, plus a subtle aftertaste of woodsy pine. The inhale is smooth and the exhale is soft and not overpowering, so you shouldn’t cough a million times after taking a puff of this dank stuff.

As you can see by the photos, the buds are thick large and dense, as is classic with a Sativa cannabis plant. They grow in various tones of green from dark to light with a few pistils accenting their large calyxes. These buds certainly provide plenty of that goodness too, coated heavily with trichomes, displaying the plant’s sizeable THC content. The density of these trichomes resembles a layer of frost, sparkling and shining when seen under a powerful grow light.
