Red Dragon Strain Information
Red Dragon is a 60/40 sativa-indica hybrid with a moderate THC content of about 17% and a CBG content of roughly 1%.

But beware — despite its middle-of-the-road THC content, this strain could leave you feeling paranoid if you have anxiety or if your tolerance isn’t high and you consume a bit too much.
Red Dragon is great for daytime use, especially if you’re looking to alleviate pain, stress, nausea, or depression without getting too hazy. But like any strain with indica genetics, this stimulating bud could leave you feeling a bit drowsy when its invigorating effects start to wear off.
