While some argue that Red Congolese is an African sativa landrace, the variety popularized in California weaves in Mexican and Afghani roots, giving it a more indica-like appearance. This colorful palette of landrace strains, which had adapted to their environment over many years, creates a complex profile of effects and flavors. Red Congo is one of the best smelling marijuana strains you can find. The buds come with a distinct, earthy and pungent scent. Some users describe it as a bit moldy and cheesy. As for the flavor, this pure sativa strain tastes spicy and sweet with some noticeable hints of grapefruit. With its impressive levels of THC and 100% sativa genetics, Red Congo is usually recommended for morning and daytime use for relieving pain, stress, fatigue, and tension. Although it’s a pure sativa, the Red Congo shows typical indica characteristics in terms of its appeal. It grows dense buds tucked in fluffy leaves that come in a colorful palette of earthy-green shades and fiery orange pistils that make these nugs even more gorgeous. Additionally, Red Congo buds are coated with a crystal-like layer of trichomes that increase the potency of the strain. The sativa genetics dominate the physical effects of Red Congolese, resulting in a weightless euphoria that promotes focus and mental clarity. Its energizing properties make Red Congolese perfect for morning treatment of nausea, cachexia, tension, or Alzheimer’s.
