The strain that’ll melt you into bliss…
Said to be one heck of a strain, Wonder Kid is notorious for its intensely relaxing effects, those that are capable of releasing any worries you might have, all while melting you into a deep bliss. With a complex genetic lineage that was pieced together essentially like an art project, we will attempt to explain further in depth about Wonder Kid’s origins later on.
This cannabis type not only produces outstanding and desirable effects for all types of consumers, but it also carries an intriguing flavor profile, adding to its complicated dynamic. If a full-on couch-locking, body high is what you want, look no further because Wonder Kid is, without a doubt, your strain.
What is the Wonder Kid Cannabis Strain?
Developed through a complex crossing of various indica-dominant strains, Wonder Kid ranks in at a 70% indica, 30% sativa genetic makeup. This fast-acting, hard-hitting indica is said to be the child of four marijuana types, some of which were also crossed themselves; Willy’s Wonder, Killer Chem, The White x Chemdawg 91, and Pre 98 Bubba Kush x Chemdawg 91. If this was not already complicated enough, Wonder Kid smells and tastes rather unexpected too.
Hefty in THC with a 23-26% average content as reported by lab tests, this is the type of strain you will only want to consume if you have no further plans for your day. Even just a few hits of this stuff can leave you chilled out and locked down to the point where you might even have trouble getting up, and for this reason, it is very much a nighttime and evening cannabis or best saved for a lazy day off.
Although Wonder Kid is body-melting, it won’t alter the activity of your mind all that much, said to increase creativity and overall excitement about new projects. Even if your body is completely relaxed, your mind can remain introspective.
Wonder Kid Aroma and Flavor
With a distinct and unique aroma that smells sweet, yet earthy and coffee-like, it is challenging to get a complete grasp of this strain’s complex aroma profile. Wonder Kid’s scent is not overwhelming or overbearing, but notes of chemical-berry do sneak their way in, which can become slightly more on the pungent side.
Just like the genetic makeup and aroma of Wonder Kid, the flavor is also multidimensional. Some say that this marijuana strain tastes mostly sweet with notes of citrus and mint, while others claim it leans more towards coffee and creamy berries. The way that your buds will taste largely depends upon the batch you receive and how it was cultivated, but regardless of what you end up with, it all tastes pretty darn pleasant. Inhales hit a bit hard, but the exhale is velvety and creamy, complementing the flavor profile terrifically.
Wonder Kid Appearance
Wonder Kid has a rather classic, frosty bud appearance, with light green sugar leaves and faded orange pistils (the tiny, curly hairs). Aside from the traditional green color, there is a gentle color variation on these nugs, with darker shades of green mixed in. The nuggets are thought to be quite light and fluffy, possessing somewhat of an airiness to them.
This strain grows relatively short, as most indicas do, with prominent light green water leaves sticking out along the sides of one massive cola, which is where all the buds collect and flourish. This cannabis strain is known for producing generous quantities of trichomes, part of what gives the nugs their frosty glimmer. This sugary coating also explains the strain’s high THC content.
Wonder Kid Strain Grow Info
Not a lot of information is available to the public regarding how it is best to cultivate Wonder Kid but those who grow this strain professionally claim it is a plant of moderate difficulty to raise. The Wonder Kid cannabis strain has a bit of a longer flowering period than many other indicas, and for this reason, cultivators must be extremely patient with their crops.
Typically possessing a 9-10 week flowering period, harvests can fall late sometimes extending into November, creating a challenge for those who are growing outdoors because weather conditions become riskier later into the Autumn season. Yields are medium in size, usually ranging between 10-16 ounces per square meter indoors, and 12-16 ounces per plant outdoors. If you decide to take on the slight challenge of cultivating Wonder Kid, just be prepared to experiment greatly because not many resources exist to aid in the growing process of this plant.
Effects of the Wonder Kid Strain
Intensely relaxing and relieving, this rather pure indica won’t necessarily make you fall asleep (although it can), but it does have a way of locking you down onto the couch. Creating an all over body sensation of melting, your limbs will feel like spaghetti, and in a good way. Typically generating the munchies, you might feel an internal conflict between staying glued to the couch or finally getting the strength to go check out the fridge. Real life stoner struggles, right? Euphoric and sometimes arousing, Wonder Kid helps to improve mental state, generating greater feelings of happiness and giddiness, as well as encouraging creative and introspective thinking.
Medical Benefits of the Wonder Kid Strain
Since Wonder Kid is intensely relaxing, it would make sense that this strain would be a wonderful medicinal option. As with many strong, potent indicas, this cannabis strain may be an excellent choice for managing conditions related to the mind and brain, including depression, stress, and insomnia.
However, it may not be best to choose Wonder Kid for daytime management of these ailments, for it can leave you feeling too low energy physically in order to get tasks completed. For this reason, Wonder Kid would be best kept as a nighttime selection, paired up with another sativa-dominant strain or even CBD oil during the daytime hours.
On a physical level, this marijuana type is typically best at relieving aches and pains, including muscle spasms, chronic pain, and headaches, but it may also be used for lack of appetite due to its munchie-bringing effect. To experience the full effects of Wonder Kid, you may want to up your dose in order to fully manage the physical discomforts.
Possible Side Effects of the Wonder Kid Strain
Unlike most cannabis strains, Wonder Kid does not typically cause dry mouth (cottonmouth) or dry eyes. Instead, its primary side effects are paranoia, laziness, and dizziness. Laziness is the most frequent, but this is not a huge deal especially if you block out a designated time of day to consume this cannabis, preferably later in the evening. The main reason why laziness can occur is because of Wonder Kid’s intensely relaxing effects, which can create a strong couch-lock sensation. Once you are in a deep couch-lock it can be challenging to get up and take care of certain tasks.
In rare circumstances, paranoia and dizziness can arise, but by taking it easy and remembering that the high will at some point pass, you’ll be able to calm yourself down if you start to feel uneasy. Overall, this marijuana strain has relatively few and moderate adverse effects, and for those that really despise dry mouth or dry, red, itchy eyes, Wonder Kid could be a wonderful option.
Final Thoughts on Wonder Kid Marijuana
If you experience depression, pain, lack of appetite, insomnia, stress, headaches, or muscle spasms and have been searching for an all-natural, herbal alternative to conventional medicines and treatment plans, the Wonder Kid marijuana strain could possibly be a worthy option for your own needs. Aside from being very medicinal and healing, Wonder Kid is also an excellent strain to just chill out and relax with recreationally.
