Just like the fictional character, the Wonder Woman strain helps combat the forces of [inner] darkness. This energizing strain is known for its mood-boosting effects and its tendency to increase your sexual appetite. Let’s delve a little deeper into this intriguing strain…
Wonder Woman is a potent strain that’s popular for its potential to combat physical as well as mental pain. The THC content of Wonder Woman ranges from 15% to a high of 22%, with the CBD typically around the 0.12% mark or less.
If you have the sativa-dominant Wonder Woman strain, you can expect a balanced high that provides you with a boost in mood, sexual arousal, and a relaxed but alert high.
The indica-dominant phenotype has a harsher taste and hits almost immediately, though the high usually subsides much faster than the sativa phenotype.
What Is Wonder Woman Strain?
Just like its namesake, the Wonder Woman strain is shrouded in mystery. The sativa-dominant strain is thought to be a cross of Top 44 and Ice. It’s also possible to grow Wonder Woman plants with more indica qualities, and the effects of these will depend heavily on the phenotype.
How Was Wonder Woman Developed?
Wonder Woman is the creation of Nirvana Seeds, who also bred both alleged parents. Ice is a cross of Shiva, Northern Lights, Skunk #1, and Afghani, which makes it pretty difficult to pinpoint what the strain will produce!
Wonder Woman features notes of petrol which can seem off-putting to some, however, the strain’s citrus undertones make the flavor more palatable. It has a complex flavor that awakens the senses.
Odor and flavor
The strain’s genetic lineage is apparent in its aroma – which features a skunky scent that’s heavily infused with petrol. The overpowering aroma is as strong as Wonder Woman herself, which is why it’s best to indulge in this strain in a well-ventilated room!
The Wonder Woman strain is characterized by its balloon-shaped nugs which are coated with glistening trichome crystals.
When grown inside, this plant only reaches a maximum height of three feet, making it a good option for those with limited space. The Wonder Woman flower is sticky with resin and extremely dense in consistency.
This means that when you roll it, your fingers can get very sticky. Be sure to have rubbing alcohol or something else on hand to clean up the gummy residue. It’s also important to use a high-quality grinder to ensure the nugs don’t get stuck.
Wonder Woman is an accessible strain in that the seeds are easy to source and not too difficult to grow. The seeds can be purchased from Nirvana Shop’s official website, or some third-party stores also sell them online.
It’s best to grow Wonder Woman indoors. While it can be grown outside, it requires adequate space and the right climate. It’s usually ready for harvest outside by the beginning of October, and has an average yield of around 16 ounces per plant.
The other thing to bear in mind is that outdoor growers have to contend with the strong odor of this strain. If you grow it indoors, you can use fans to control the scent, ideally a carbon activated filter if you have a grow tent.
The indoor yield is bigger too, generating an enormous 24 ounces per square meter.
As a compact cannabis plant, Wonder Woman is perfect for indoor cultivation and only needs to be topped a maximum of two times. By keeping the plant short, it’ll flourish without taking up too much space.
It’s recommended to use the Sea of Green (SOG) growing technique and consider a hydroponics set, too. With hydroponics as opposed to soil, you can speed up the 9-week flowering time.
Due to the strain’s complex genetics, you can end up with two different phenotypes if you only germinate two seeds, and these will be indica-leaning and sativa-dominant, respectively.
A sativa phenotype will stretch to double its size during flowering, whereas the indica phenotype finishes flowering up to a week before the sativa, and tends to provide a higher yield.
The effects of Wonder Woman will depend on which phenotype you take. The sativa-dominant provides a balanced high and an energizing boost in mood, and may also make you feel more aroused.
The physical high allows you to feel relaxed but alert, and this balances out the cerebral effects. The indica-dominant phenotype has a harsher taste and its effects hit almost immediately, though the high subsides much faster than its sativa counterpart.
Overall, Wonder Woman is a great strain for socializing, as it gives you a boost in energy and mood while allowing you to remain relaxed.
While Wonder Woman can potentially improve your mood and offer other positive effects, there is a danger of headaches if you overindulge, and other possible side effects include dry eyes and a dry mouth.
On rare occasions, you may experience dizziness or anxiety, but only if you use too strong a dose.
This potent strain is used to combat the pain caused by various medical conditions such as headaches and fibromyalgia, as well as for treating muscle spasms or arthritis symptoms.
Wonder Woman is also used to treat mental conditions such as anxiety, chronic stress, depression, and ADD/ADHD. It may also be useful if you suffer from gastrointestinal nausea, cramps, or if you want to increase your appetite.
