      Recon Strain Information

      Recon is an 80/20 Indica-Sativa hybrid that clocks in at roughly 22% THC on average (it can get as high as 35%) and about 1% CBD. For an indica, this strain hits surprisingly fast, delivering a tension-melting, almost numbing sensation that’ll slowly travel from your head and neck throughout the rest of your physical form.

      As your high builds, you might notice some trippy sensory distortions, which may make music or a visually engaging movie all the more engrossing. Given this strain’s rather disorienting and super relaxing effects, it’s ideal for laid-back social gatherings at home or solo relaxation time on the couch. Just don’t count on getting much done after you partake because your tush will likely be glued to your couch for hours.
