The Hobbit strain is clearly named after the small humanoid race that lives in Middle-earth in the Lord of the Rings novels. Personally, I choose to believe that the breeders listened to the ‘The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins’ by Star Trek actor, Leonard Nimoy. Given how funny the music video and accompanying awfulness is when sober, I can only imagine how good it is when you’re stoned!
What is the Hobbit Strain?
Hobbit strain weed is a balanced hybrid created by the Kannabia Seed Company. It is a cross of an unknown Ruderalis strain with Ginger Ale. While it isn’t the strongest marijuana strain you’ll come across; it is an excellent option if you are looking to relax with friends on a day where you don’t have anything particularly important to do. It is an autoflowering strain, which means it grows from seed to harvest exceptionally quickly.
While the Hobbit marijuana strain isn’t as strong as others on the market, it makes up for it with an exceptional flavor and aroma profile. It offers a sweet, strawberry taste, which is so strong that we recommend investing in odor filters from the early flowering stages when growing indoors.
Hobbit tastes like strawberries and candy! Some users claim that this strain is like sugary strawberry sweets when you exhale.
Due to its Ruderalis genetics, Hobbit is diminutive – just like the creatures in the fictional world of Tolkien. The nugs have an airy structure and also have small amber hairs and matching tiny crystal trichomes.
Hobbit Strain Grow Info
Autoflowering strains are becoming extremely popular, and once you purchase Hobbit strain seeds, you will be able to grow your crop in just 65 days! In theory, you could grow five Hobbit harvests in the comfort of your home! This particular variety involves flowering on side branches, which helps explain the above-average yield.
According to Kannabia, you can get 25 grams of bud per seed when growing Hobbit indoors, and 60 grams per seed when growing outside. As five seeds cost approximately $35, you can get 4.5-5 ounces of weed indoors, and an impressive 11 ounces when grown outside. These are feminized seeds and highly resistant to fungi, and common pests/diseases. As a result, growers in wet or humid climates will have less trouble than usual.
If you grow Hobbit autoflowering seeds indoors, it is easy to grow in 18-hour photoperiods. Those who cultivate it outdoors are advised to try and grow these seeds between March and October for best results. We have also heard experts suggest that Hobbit seeds should be grown in 7-liter pots.
What’s interesting is the sheer strength of the smell. Unlike many other marijuana strains, Hobbit’s fragrance is pungent from the very beginning. This could be a problem if you are growing outdoors but want a clandestine harvest. Ideally, you will grow Hobbit indoors with smell proofing.
An activated carbon filter is an essential purchase because it can eliminate up to 90% of odors in your marijuana garden almost immediately. These devices use activated and highly ionized carbon to attract the particles in the air. Items such as dust, mold spores, and hair, which carry odors, become trapped by the ionized carbon molecules inside the main filter of the device, or in a pre-filter.
THC Content – Highest Test
Don’t expect Hobbit cannabis to blow your mind; its THC content is usually around 15%. That’s pretty high if you are inexperienced, and would have been considered ‘potent’ a decade or so ago. In today’s THC-obsessed market, however, it is classified as being moderately potent.
CBD Content – Highest Test
Hobbit contains minimal CBD.
What Can I Expect When I Use Hobbit Weed?
Despite the fairly moderate level of THC, you’ll be surprised by the strength of the high. Indeed, the unusual nature of the Hobbit high has caught many users unaware. It begins with a nice tingling sensation that takes place behind the eyes and forehead. Eventually, it makes its way down to your body and provides you with a happy and hazy effect.
You can use Hobbit in the late afternoon if you are going out because it is a sociable strain that helps you to start talking to complete strangers. Users often report an intense feeling of focus during the early stages of the high. Eventually, the tingling feeling engulfs the body, and you start to feel lazy. By the time the high has completely taken hold, all you’ll want to do is lie on the couch or in bed. It could also give you a case of the munchies.
Medical Benefits of Hobbit Marijuana
As it is a hybrid strain, Hobbit can be used to treat mental or physical issues. The THC content isn’t high enough to ensure it is an effective treatment for severe pain, but it is a good option if you’re looking to treat minor pains and aches. As Hobbit has sedative effects, you may find it useful to help you attain a good night’s sleep. Also, its uplifting properties could help individuals suffering from anxiety, stress, or depression.
Possible Side Effects of Hobbit Weed
As it isn’t an exceptionally potent strain, Hobbit seldom causes anything other than very minor effects. Users have reported dry eyes, and it may also result in you bursting into a fit of giggles, although we’re not sure if that constitutes a ‘bad’ thing! It is best used in the evening because of its sedative effects.
Final Thoughts on Hobbit Cannabis
Kannabia has created a winning balanced hybrid and has made the most of the often unfairly maligned Ruderalis genetics. Its aroma gives you the impression that you’re in for a taste sensation and Hobbit doesn’t disappoint. The fruity, sweet, strawberry flavor is truly mouthwatering and will make you come back for more.
Hobbit isn’t an exceptionally potent marijuana strain, but it will do a reasonable job, especially if you are a novice or someone with below-average tolerance. As it is an autoflowering strain, it is incredibly easy to grow, and it provides above-average yields.
