In Greek and Roman mythology, Ambrosia is the name given to the food of the gods. Perhaps this plant complements the menu with a smoke worthy of this term’s general definition: “something sweetly pleasing in taste or smell”. The Burmese sativa mother of this plant came from Mighty Mite Seed Company, and was voted #1 People’s Choice in the 2002 Cannabis Culture Toker’s Bowl. The father, Jordan’s God Bud strain, is a mostly indica plant that gained popularity because of its powerful, desireable aroma and a flavor leaning toward tropical sweetness.
Ambrosia grows well in a sea of green using hydro or soil methods. Outdoors this plant does best in locales with long days during the summer. Its growth habits meld together aspect from both sides of the family tree, resulting in a plant that reaches a happy medium in height, foliage and coloration. Ambrosia is a fast, vigorous grower. She will become bushy if there is room, but tends to not be very leafy, which makes manicuring a little less painstaking. With average fertilizer use and good garden conditions, Ambrosia produces a respectable yield of buds that are dense, sticky and redolent of classic mellow dank skunkiness. The leaves yellow and the hairs turn strongly orange to clearly indicate ripe readyness.
Ambrosia’s smoke is appropriately sweet and complex, with just enough skunk to keep it traditional. The ambrosia buzz stays on the sativa end of the spectrum, producing an awake, up high that comes on fast and stays functional. This makes Ambrosia a good all-day smoke.
