Strain Integrity

From, ” Fish Scale, also known as “Fish Scales,” is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through crossing the classic East Coast Sour Diesel X Crippy strains. Weird name aside, this bud is a patient favorite for its numbing high that will have you kicked back and totally calm before you finally get to sleep. The high starts with a subtle build, working its tingly hands into your brain and filling your mind with an expansive numbing haziness. As your mind becomes unfocused, you’ll begin to settle into the couch with a deeply relaxing physical high. This body high quickly becomes stoney, locking you to the couch and dropping you into full blown sedation. Combined with its super high 25-26% average THC level, these sleepy effects make Fish Scale perfect for treating migraines or headaches, chronic stress, depression, insomnia and chronic pain …. ”

From Mendo Cannabis, ” Fish Scales is an evenly balanced hybrid that has a sharp, spicy aroma with overtones of black pepper. You can identify Fish Scales by its compact emerald nugs, thick orange hairs, and frosty crystal trichomes.
