Triple X, a.k.a. the XXX strain, is commonly confused with its more famous offspring, Triple X OG. Understandably, when a strain is crossed with a cannabis legend like OG Kush, it risks being overshadowed.

That seems to be the case with Triple X as it is less well-known than its OG progeny. As a result, specific information relating to the strain is quite hard to come by. It gives this strain an air of mystery and intrigue. Let’s delve a little deeper into its lineage to find out more.

What Is the Triple X Strain?

Triple X is an indica-dominant hybrid by Hazeman Seeds. It is a cross of The White strain and a 98′ Aloha White Widow male.

Unfortunately, specific information relating to its exact THC and CBD contents is not available. However, we can estimate the likely percentages based on its parent strains THC and CBD contents. We can also refer to Triple X user reviews to gauge how potent its effects are.

xxx-strain

Firstly, its parent strain, The White, has a breathtakingly high maximum THC content of 30%. This potent THC level makes it one of the strongest marijuana strains on the market.

Secondly, Triple X’s other parent strain, 98′ Aloha White Widow, has a THC content of up to 20%. Also, its offspring, Triple X OG, can contain up to 25% THC. Therefore, it is likely that the Triple X strain has a THC content of approximately 20% or more.

Further evidence for this THC level comes from user reviews. Most describe Triple X’s high as euphoric and uplifting. A deep feeling of relaxation also accompanies Triple X’s more mood-enhancing effects. However, as time passes, total relaxation gives way to couchlock and complete sedation. As a result, many use this strain to address sleep-related problems like insomnia.

Given the nature of Triple X’s effects, it is best suited to evening time use.

Aroma

Triple X’s parent strain, The White, is renowned for its lack of aroma. In contrast, Triple X’s other parent strain, 98′ Aloha White Widow, has a distinctively pungent ammonia-like odor.

While you can detect this ammonia odor in Triple X’s fragrance, it is dampened by its overall earthiness. It smells of moist, freshly-dug earth, with prominent piney notes. Some say that Triple X also has a subtle sweet scent coupled with a fresh floral fragrance.

Flavor

When combusted, Triple X’s smoke is exceptionally smooth. The earthy, piney notes present in its fragrance are its most prominent flavors.

Appearance

Like both of its parent strains, Triple X is coated with a heavy layer of glistening, resinous trichomes. It maintains a typical indica-type structure and grows short and bushy.

Triple X Strain Grow Info

Again, growing information relating specifically to the Triple X strain is not readily available. Growers should stick to tried and trusted methods for growing indica-dominant strains. Alternatively, growers might find the grow information in our Triple X OG strain review useful.

The good news is that Triple X seeds are available online. Alternatively, growers can source clippings from a mature Triple X female plant to grow a clone.

While this strain can be grown indoors or outdoors, experienced growers recommend indoor cultivation. The indoor flowering period is reasonably lengthy at 9-10 weeks. Those growing Triple X indoors will need to prune their plants regularly and can expect an average yield.

Outdoors, these plants are typically ready for harvesting around late October and produce a reasonable return.

THC Content – Highest Test

There is no published laboratory data to independently verify the Triple X strain’s exact THC level. However, for the reasons stated above, Triple X’s maximum THC content is likely to be in the 20-25% range.

CBD Content – Highest Test

Again, without any laboratory reports to consult, we have to estimate Triple X’s CBD content. Both of its parent strains contain up to 0.25% CBD. Therefore, Triple X is likely to contain a similar CBD content.

Medical Benefits of the Triple X Strain

One of the primary medicinal reasons for consuming the Triple X strain is to manage sleep-related disorders like insomnia. As mentioned, Triple X has relaxing effects, which intensify to the point that users become drowsy. Therefore, those looking to manage insomnia, or who want a peaceful night’s sleep, may find Triple X useful.

Another common reason why people use Triple X is to address mood disorders like depression. Some may also find this strain’s sedating effects useful for alleviating pain.

It is not known whether Triple X is useful for PTSD or if it has any antiemetic properties.

Possible Side Effects of the Triple X Strain

The most common side effects associated with Triple X are dry mouth and dry eyes. Triple X is likely to have a maximum THC content of between 20-25%. Therefore, some may experience THC-related side effects such as paranoia, anxiety, or dizziness.

Some users may also experience indica side effects like couchlock and drowsiness due to its sedative-like properties.

Final Thoughts on the Triple X Strain

Largely overshadowed by its more well-known offspring, the Triple X strain still has plenty to offer to cannabis consumers. Both experienced recreational and medicinal users could potentially benefit from its uplifting and deeply relaxing effects.

However, novices should note Triple X’s potent effects, which can lead to sedation and drowsiness.
