Cannabis probably isn’t the first thing that jumps to mind when you hear the term “Dance World,” but it is a well-loved and powerful strain. Contrary to what you may think, it’s a laid back strain. But it might put you in the mood to sway those hips – hence the name – Dance World strain.
A sativa-dominant strain, Dance World was bred by Royal Queen Seeds in Spain and has high THC and CBD-levels, along with great medical value. In pursuit of perfection, the company decided to cross Dancehall with the European Juanita la Lagrimosa to enhance healing properties. After all, the latter is known for it’s high CBD levels and functional high.
Thanks to its Dancehall parent, Dance World is known for its active, uplifting effects that promote a positive mindset and motivate productivity. Find out more in our full review below.
What Is the Dance World Strain?
Dance World is a high-CBD sativa-dominant strain (75% sativa / 25% indica) created through a cross of the Dancehall and Juanita la Lagrimosa strain. Although it’s mostly referred to as having high levels of CBD, the strain also has high levels of THC. In fact, it’s one of the few strains in the cannabis industry that boasts an almost 1:1 CBD to THC ratio.
Based on its name, you can probably already guess that Dance World induces a fun, psychedelic high. However, you will need to wait a few minutes since the sativa properties are not as fast-acting as its CBD counterparts. But many do experience a gradual rise in energy levels as a buzzing sensation gushes through the body.
Due to the high CBD levels, this strain may not immediately seem to be psychoactive. Only 10 to 15 minutes after having a puff, do some users start feeling relief from any long-standing tension in the body. In very high dosages and relaxed circumstances, the body high may even progress into couchlock and full-on numbness.
Often, the initial onset is only noticed once the behavioral changes occur. Users become lively and happy with a newfound confidence that paves the way for getting in touch with themselves. Thanks to an upbeat mood, many people find that they start opening up to the people around them.
The first scent let off from the cured flowers is often an earthy smell like damp soil. You can also expect some fruity, citrus-like hints that brighten up the aroma. Once the flowers are picked apart or ground, there’s a hashy, spicy scent that emerges – possibly passed on from its Afghani lineage.
When Dance World is combusted in a joint or pipe, it gives off a fragrant and herbal-tinged smoke that is easy to ingest. On the exhale, the smoke tastes a little fruity.
The flowers of the Dance World strain are typically medium to large in size. The notoriously showy flowers have the loose, open structure that most other predominantly sativa strains feature.
The buds have a rugged shape and are a bright spring green color. Curly brown pistils wind around the buds. The inner and outer layers of the flowers are coated with resinous white trichomes.
Dance World Strain Grow Info
The Dance World strain is a relatively short, sativa-dominant cannabis plant. From afar, one wouldn’t think that this is a sativa leaning plant because it’s so short. It reaches a height of 60–90cm and will complete bloom in around 8 weeks.
Although Dance World does well in sunny environments, it definitely prefers cooler temperatures. The cold-resistant genes make this the perfect herb to grow in the northern hemisphere, where growers often struggle to cultivate sun-loving plants. It’s also good at withstanding problems caused by humidity like mildew and mold.
What this plant cannot handle is long exposure to heat. Thus, breeders from the southern hemisphere are better off cultivating Dance World in indoor growing spaces where temperature and lighting can be easily adjusted. This means that they can easily mimic climates at higher altitudes.
When grown indoors, this sativa leaning strain takes between 10 to 12 weeks to mature. But, it boasts a short flowering period of only 8 weeks. What’s more, it yields between 17 to 19 ounces of buds per square meter.
In outdoor environments, Dance World flowers by the first week of October and each plant yields up to 16 ounces of buds per plant.
THC Content – Highest Test
The Dance World THC levels average between 12 – 15%. So newbies and veteran users can fully enjoy this strain. There is no indication that the THC level has exceeded 15%.
CBD Content – Highest Test
The CBD levels are known to hit 11% but nothing higher. That said, 11% is impressive – especially for a strain that also has relatively high levels of THC.
Medical Benefits of the Dance World Strain
The high CBD levels of Dance World make it very valuable to medical marijuana patients. Its calm and kicked-back physical feeling can help to relieve physical pain, whether it’s due to injury or chronic conditions like fibromyalgia. Furthermore, the anti-inflammatory properties of the strain can help with everyday discomforts like cramps and headaches.
Also, high CBD and THC strains like Dance World are said to promote mental well-being. Those who can handle and appreciate the cerebral stimulation of this strain may find it helpful in the treatment of stress and depression. An added bonus is the mood-enhancing qualities, which can help users to manage turbulent emotions – like those associated with PTSD.
Dance World can also be useful for those with attention deficit disorders, helping them to stay focused on a single task.
Take note that because its bodily effects may be strong enough to make some people feel dissociated, Dance World isn’t recommended for patients who have a low THC tolerance or are prone to panic attacks.
Possible Side Effects of the Dance World Strain
Created for medicinal purposes, it’s not surprising that Dance World comes without many side effects. However, there is the possibility of the usual dry mouth – a typical side effect when using cannabis. The good news is that you can easily remedy this with water. Just be sure to stay hydrated when smoking pot. Some users also experience headaches to some extent, depending on the dosage used.

Dance World is a uniquely versatile strain that can be used by both recreational and medicinal marijuana users. It’s an uplifting strain with great medicinal potential and calming qualities. Many connoisseurs agree that Dance World is quite relaxing, so both worlds can be experienced when smoking this strain.
The THC levels hit the 12% mark, and CBD levels reach almost the same heights. If you’re looking to get a solid dose of CBD while feeling groovy, Dance World may just be the perfect choice.
The strain is not overwhelming or sedating. Instead, it wraps the body in relaxation so users can tackle tasks head-on with complete motivation. But, if you want to go dancing, Dance World will also suffice. After all, it does help the body to move a little smoother.
