The Snowball Strain of Cannabis: For People Who Just Really Want to Get High

The Snowball Strain of Cannabis: For People Who Just Really Want to Get High


In recent years, science has demonstrated that various strains of marijuana provide a substantial number of health benefits. However, at the end of the day, some people just want to get high. Snowball is a marijuana strain that does not shy away from that fact. It offers an exhilarating high that is the perfect way to end a long day. Snowball's sweet and creamy flavor is excellent for both new and experienced cannabis users, but responsible use is strongly suggested. Overconsumption of this strain may quickly lead to some undesirable side effects.

Due to its intoxicating high, Snowball is one of the most popular marijuana strains on the market today. It was bred specifically to rival the potent highs and relaxing effects of many similar strains on the market. However, there is more to this extraordinary strain than just a good time. Let’s explore the details behind Snowball and what led to its explosion in popularity and use.


About This Strain

Ethos Genetics is a cannabis breeder well known for using science and data to help develop revolutionary strains of cannabis. Once again, they succeeded with the development of Snowball, a new hybrid strain of marijuana that puts the focus back where it should be, on getting high.


  • Lineage

Snowball was first bred by combining two popular and potent strains of marijuana, a classic strain known as The White and the legendary Chem 4 OG. 

  • Genetic Ratio

Snowball is an indica dominant hybrid strain of marijuana with a 70%/30% ratio of indica to sativa. 

  • THC Content

For a strain known for its intense highs, Snowball does not disappoint when it comes to its THC content. It is not uncommon to find THC levels ranging between 22%-30%.

  • Gender

Snowball is a female strain of marijuana.

  • Cannabinoids

As with most marijuana strains with high THC levels, Snowball has a very low amount of CBD, less than 1%.


Therapeutic Benefits of Snowball

This strain is used mainly by people who desire a relaxing and intense high that causes euphoria and helps prepare the body for sleep. However, Snowball offers some health benefits, including insomnia, muscle spasms, cramping, chronic pain, and inflammation. In some users, it has also been known to calm anxieties and reduce the impact of stress and depression.


Possible Side Effects 

Snowball causes typical cannabis-related side effects like cottonmouth and dry eyes. This cannabis strain may cause headaches, dizziness, and anxiety when used in excess.


Similar Strains

A few strains are similar to Snowball and provide users with a tremendous and relaxing high. These strains include Crumpets, Meltdown, Hammerhead, Jungle Cake, Chem Cookies, Banjo, and Hades OG. While the flavors may be different, the potency and effects of the high they offer are all reasonably similar.


Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance

Snowball has a strong but not overpowering smell. However, it is noticeable because of its intense, sweet, and citrusy aroma. Due to its parent strains, there are light earthy undertones with a hint of both diesel and chemical. The citrus smell intensifies as the nuggets are burned.

Initially, Snowball starts with a subtle sour citrus flavor. The flavor matches well with the initial smell. On the exhale, this strain has a smooth, creamy taste. Similar to the smell, Snowball has an earthy undertone that blends well with the other flavors. Overall, this aspect makes this a very pleasurable strain to smoke and experience.

Aside from its aroma and taste, Snowball is well known for producing massive nugs that are incredibly dense and covered with an extensive amount of resin which will often give the plant the appearance of being covered with millions of tiny white crystals. This is how the strain got its name. Sometimes the nugs will be covered with beautiful purple trichomes and white crystals. However, this depends on the conditions under which the strain is grown and the plant's maturity at harvest.  


Terpenes Found in Snowball

Snowball contains four primary terpenes. Carene is the most prominent of them all, along with Bisabolol, Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Myrcene. These terpenes are the main reason why Snowball has such a sweet citrus flavor with earthy undertones. This strain also contains trace amounts of Terpinolene, Humulene, Linalool, Pinene, Phellandrene, and Ocimene.  


Grow Information

Snowball has relatively large flowers and a fantastic yield, about 50-75 grams per square foot, making it a popular strain with cannabis growers. Another popular aspect is that it does not require a high level of expertise to grow this strain effectively. The ease of growing this strain, along with its dense buds and high yield, make for a winning combination for almost any marijuana grower. 

The flowering period is about 7-9 weeks, and the plants grow to about 3 feet tall. The only thing to seriously be cautious about is that this strain is susceptible to plant disease and mold. Therefore it is essential to have a quality ventilation system in place.


Final Thoughts

Snowball rapidly rose in popularity for a reason. Simply put, Snowball is a marijuana strain that is perfect for people who want a fantastic high that is both relaxing and powerful. This hybrid strain is a great way to calm the body from head to toe while also helping to relieve pain, inflammation, insomnia, and more. For those who have not experienced it yet, this should be the next strain on your bucket list.
