Fans of Roald Dahl’s hugely popular children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, or the classic 1971 movie starring Gene Wilder, may recognize this strain’s name, Snozzberry. (Even this strain’s breeders, Alphakronik Genes, categorize the Snozzberry strain as part of its “Wonka” series on its website).
There are several less than pleasant theories about the origins of the word Snozzberry, one being that “schnoz” is slang for nose in the U.K., so you can imagine what a Snozzberry might be if this is what Dahl meant.
We’re happy to report that the Snozzberry strain is much more pleasant than that theory suggests it might be. Read on to learn more about the Snozzberry strain in our comprehensive review.
What Is the Snozzberry Strain?
Snozzberry, also known as Snozz Berry, is an almost entirely indica strain (90%) with incredibly relaxing effects. Many fans of this strain describe it as the perfect after-dinner treat due to its delicious flavor, uplifting high, and ultimately soporific effects.
Most say that as the evening progresses and Snozzberry’s full-on body effects have completely taken hold, they feel so relaxed that they become sleepy. So, if you plan on trying out this hybrid for yourself, it is best to do so when you have a free evening to relax and unwind before retiring for the night.
Snozzberry Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
There is a detectable fragrance of one of Snozzberry’s parents, Super Snow Dog, in this hybrid’s aroma, but also notable hints of lavender and jasmine.
Most Snozzberry fans say that beyond its effects, its flavor is one of its standout features, with the sweet fruitiness of grapes and berries and hints of spiciness.
A mature Snozzberry plant has tapered, spade-shaped, olive green nugs with purple tints. The pistils are dark amber and contrast nicely with the beautifully frosted appearance of its resinous trichome coating.
Snozzberry Strain Grow Info
There isn’t much growing information specific to this strain in the public domain other than it is considered moderately difficult to grow.
However, there is some info from experienced Snozzberry growers regarding its flowering period. Snozzberry’s indoor flowering period is between 50-57 days, and indoor cannabis cultivators say that they can achieve yields of between 12-15 ounces indoors when growing Snozzberry in nutrient-rich soil.
Those who choose to grow the Snozzberry strain outdoors can expect to harvest their plants after about 66 days. The outdoor yields are generous, typically between 15-18 ounces per plant.

The Snozzberry strain is a cross of Super Snow Dog and Purple Urkle. Super Snow Dog, a.k.a. Snow Dog, is the child of Chemdawg (Sour Diesel x OG Kush).
Purple Urkle is a cross of Grape Ape and the classic indica strain Granddaddy Purple. With such incredible genetics in its lineage, it’s easy to see why so many people are impressed by the Snozzberry strain.
Medical Benefits of the Snozzberry Strain
Despite being a relatively low CBD strain, Snozzberry has some purported medical benefits, mainly derived from its unique terpene profile.
The most dominant terpene is geraniol, which is believed to have anti-inflammatory, neuroprotectant, and antibacterial properties. The second most dominant is valencene, which also has anti-inflammatory properties. The next is eucalyptol, which reportedly has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties.

Given the anti-inflammatory properties of the Snozzberry strain’s most dominant terpenes, it is unsurprising that many report using this hybrid to address inflammation and to alleviate pain.
As Snozzberry has calming and uplifting effects, it may help people with mood disorders such as anxiety and depression.
Possible Side Effects of the Snozzberry Strain
Some may experience mild side effects such as cottonmouth or dry eyes. However, those who overconsume may experience couchlock and heavy sedation, and drowsiness.
