The Wonder Woman strain of marijuana is named after the famous DC Comics character. Originally from the fictional island of Themyscira, she assumes the identity Diana Prince when she visits Earth. Wonder Woman is a member of the Justice League and was famously portrayed by Lynda Carter in the TV Series and by Gal Gadot in the recent Hollywood movie.
This is a well-named strain because like the fictional character, Wonder Woman weed helps combat the forces of darkness; in this case, inner turmoil. It is also known for stimulating one’s sexual appetite. We knew that would pique your interest, so keep reading to learn more about this fantastic strain.
What is the WonderWoman Strain?
Much like the heroine, the origins of Wonder Woman weed are shrouded in mystery. It is suggested that this sativa-dominant strain is a cross of Top 44 and Ice. For the record, Nirvana Seeds bred both alleged parents. Ice is a cross of Shiva, Northern Lights, Skunk #1, and Afghani, which means it isn’t always easy to predict what the strain will produce.
While it has sativa-dominant genetics, it is entirely possible for you to grow Wonder Woman plants with more indica qualities.
You can clearly smell this strain’s genetic lineage, as it offers a skunky scent with more than a hint of petrol. It is an overpowering aroma almost as strong as the superhero herself. Make sure you indulge in this weed in a well-ventilated room!
Petrol is also apparent in the taste, although there are also citrus undertones that make the flavor more palatable. Your senses will be treated by this strain’s complexity, and when you inhale, you almost get a lemon-flavored fuel taste!
Wonder Woman marijuana has balloon-shaped nugs covered with glistening trichome crystals. It only reaches a maximum height of three feet when grown indoors, so it is a good option if you have limited space. The consistency of the flower is sticky with resin and extremely dense.
When you roll this strain, you will be amazed at how sticky your fingers get. We advise you to have rubbing alcohol or something else to clean the gummy mess from your hands! It is also important to use a high-quality grinder, or else the nugs will get stuck.
Wonder Woman Strain Grow Info
Once you have your Wonder Woman seeds, you’ll find that it isn’t that hard to grow. Ideally, you will grow it indoors, but you can also grow it outside if you have the space and the right climate. It is normally ready for harvest outside by the beginning of October, and it yields up to 16 ounces per plant.
As Wonder Woman is such a short plant, it is perfect for indoor cultivation. You only need to top it a maximum of two times, and when you keep it nice and short, it becomes bushier but still doesn’t occupy a huge amount of space. We recommend using the Sea of Green (SOG) growing technique and consider a hydroponics setup.
With hydroponics instead of soil, you can reduce the 9-week flowering time. Outdoor growers have to contend with the strong odor of this strain while indoor cultivators can use fans to control the scent. A carbon activated filter is ideal if you have a grow tent. When grown indoors, the yield is an enormous 24 ounces per square meter.
The strain’s complex genetics means it is possible to end up with two different phenotypes (one indica-leaning, the other sativa-dominant) if you only germinate two seeds. If you end up with a sativa phenotype, you will notice that the plant stretches to double its size during flowering. The indica phenotype tends to provide a higher yield and often finishes flowering up to a week sooner.
THC Content – Highest Test
The THC content of Wonder Woman ranges from 15% to a high of 22%.
CBD Content – Highest Test
Typically, this strain’s CBD is 0.12% or less. As a result, the THC to CBD ratio can range from 125:1 to over 180:1.
What Can I Expect When I Use Wonder Woman Weed?
A lot depends on the phenotype. If you have sativa-dominant Wonder Woman, you will enjoy a smooth inhale but harsh exhale. It is a balanced high that provides you with a boost in mood, and you may even feel more aroused. The physical high creeps in to balance the cerebral effects, which makes you feel relaxed but alert.
The indica-dominant phenotype has a harsher taste and hits you very hard almost immediately. The high subsides much faster than if it has a sativa phenotype. Overall, it is a good strain if you are out socializing, and it could be worth a quick smoke if you are eager to improve the quality of sex.
Medical Benefits of Wonder Woman Marijuana
This is a potent strain which means it is often used to combat the pain caused by a variety of medical conditions such as headaches and fibromyalgia. It is also used by individuals looking for a solution to the problem of muscle spasms, and it is said to be useful when treating the pain caused by arthritis.
Wonder Woman weed is a popular medicinal strain for mental health ailments including anxiety, chronic stress, depression, and ADD/ADHD. If you have gastrointestinal problems, you could use this cannabis to see if it eases nausea, alleviates the pain of cramps, or increases your appetite.
Possible Side Effects of Wonder Woman Weed
Although Wonder Woman marijuana is potentially capable of improving your mood, there is a danger of headaches if you overindulge. Other possible side effects include dry eyes and a dry mouth. On rare occasions, you may feel dizzy or experience anxiety, but only if you use too strong a dose.
Final Thoughts on Wonder Woman Cannabis
This marijuana strain has its own superpowers including an ability to provide users with a euphoric high. It is potent enough to combat common medical problems such as headaches and anxiety, but it won’t knock you out unless you use a very high dose. It is an excellent option if you want to grow weed but only have a small indoor space to work with.
As it is a strain more likely to give you a boost in energy rather than sedating you, it is suitable for use in the late morning or afternoon. It should help you improve your mood and enable you to make it through a stressful day. Other potential benefits include improved concentration and focus.
