Crescendo is an sativa dominant hybrid strain (80% sativa/20% indica) created through crossing the infamous I-95 X Chemdawg X Mandarin Cookies strains. Named for the musical term, Crescendo brings on a high that builds and builds until you hit the point of pure happiness and ease. The high comes on with a creeping effect, slowly seeping its way into both mind and body with an expansive happiness, filling you with a tingly lifted effect that has you feeling as light as air. A sense of euphoria accompanies this tingle, leaving you giddy and giggly at times. A relaxing body high accompanies this lifted state, helping your physical form stay anchored as your mind flies higher and higher. With these effects and its insanely high 30-35% average THC level, Crescendo is often chosen to treat conditions such as chronic pain, depression, chronic stress or anxiety, insomnia and mood swings. Crescendo buds have oversized bright neon green fluffy spade-shaped nugs with long thin orange hairs and a thick frosty coating of tiny white crystal trichomes. As you pull apart each sparkling little nugget, aromas of sweet woods and chemicals are released with a touch of berry, too. The flavor is on the sweeter side, with ripe berries and sweet woods dancing across your tongue.
In a cannabis context, the term diamond has a few different meanings. It’s often used to describe pure tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) crystalline, also known as “THCA diamonds” or “THC diamonds,” as well as THCA crystalline that was developed in the presence of a terpene-rich solution.
