      Larry Bird Strain Information

      Although Larry Bird is a 50/50 sativa-indica hybrid, it’s best known for its seriously euphoric and energizing, heady effects. But an invigorating mental buzz isn’t the only thing you’ll enjoy after a few tokes of this wonderfully powerful strain.

      Alongside its intense cerebral high, Larry Bird also delivers a pleasantly relaxing body buzz that’s soothing enough to relieve pain and tension but nowhere near heavy enough to induce physical sedation. After a bowl of the bird, you’ll feel energized, mentally aware, physically soothed, worry-free, and ready to happily tackle whatever comes your way.

      Because this strain is so potent, it may not be the best choice if you struggle with anxiety. But if you’re looking for some herbal medicine for depression, pain, inflammation, migraines, headaches, low appetite, or stress, this strain may be the perfect prescription.
