Have you ever wondered what it would feel like smoking a bar of soap? I mean, why would you? Still, we bring to you an iconic new strain called the Zoap strain that would fulfill this weird fantasy of yours. From an amazing high to a unique flavor profile, this strain is all about weirdness, but in a good way.
What Is Zoap?
This is a brilliant strain that is evenly balanced and is gaining raging popularity in the cannabis circles. Funnily enough, a lot of users reported that the Zoap strain has a soapy aroma. Still, this is not bothering the cannabis connoisseurs who are using this strain left and right. Meanwhile, one Zoap strain review claimed that it has a floral smell that is nothing like how a bar of soap should smell. Therefore, the Zoap strain is an enigma for cannabis enthusiasts.
Apart from users, this strain is also quite popular amongst the grower circle due to its high potency and yield. Some of the Zoap strain effects are believed to last for hours on end, which means pure heavy-hitting euphoria that can last for hours on end.
Is The Zoap Strain Indica Or Sativa?
The Zoap weed strain is a hybrid in all sense of the word. Some might even call it a perfect hybrid. This strain is a 50/50 hybrid, which means that it is 50% Indica and 50% sativa. Therefore, it can give the users the best of both worlds. One can munch on food and be a couch potato or create beautiful masterpieces while being highly focused. Therefore, if you want to try something ‘balanced’, then Zoap is your strain.
The nugs of this strain have a dark olive hue with purple undertones to them, are round in shape, and are fairly dense. Couple these with fine amber-colored hairs and deep-purple trichomes that add accents to these nugs. Therefore, anybody who has seen this nug once can identify this nug easily due to its iconic visuals. But as a user, colors do not appeal to you, am I right? Not only is this a visually appealing nugget of weed, but it also boasts around 25% to 26% of THC. Therefore, it is one of the most potent strains of weed that you can procure for different usages.
The Zoap strain is essentially a hybrid weed that is a result of crossbreeding between two equally iconic strains. Rainbow Sherbet and Pink guava are the parent strains of this iconic strain. Most of the characteristics that are iconic to this particular strain come from the parent strains.
According to Leafly, Rainbow Sherbet is a strain that will make its users calm and experience body-high or heaviness. Meanwhile, Pink Guava is a strain that is perfect for keeping the conversations or the ideas flowing. As a result, the Zoap strain has potent couch-locking capabilities and powers to stimulate your mind.
Keeping in mind the parent strain’s aroma, this strain projects something similar as well. This is a strain that is perfect for individuals who enjoy a sweet, citrusy flavor with a hint of earthy aroma. While some other users claim that the strain has a gassy undertone to it. Therefore, the strain has a diverse aromatic profile that can appeal to a larger group of users. Maybe this is why the strain is growing in popularity so fast in cannabis or, as I like to call it, the 420 community.
The flavor profile is where this strain becomes really interesting. Users claimed that as soon as they inhaled the smoke, they were pleasantly welcomed by the sweet funk of the Guava along with the finer hints of the Sherbet. Soon enough, this flavor profile transforms into something earthy and woody on the exhale. Leaving a thick essence of gassy skunk. This makes an interesting experience when it comes to the flavoring of the weed.
When all these flavor profiles combine, it gives off a taste of organic scented soaps. Weirdly enough, many users, including me, find this to be a fairly unique flavor profile that cannot be found in any other strain of weed. In fact, several reviewers said that the flavor profiles become more prominent if one consumes the strain via a water bong.
Understanding the flavor profile of the strain is one of the primary things to know about a nug. However, without discussing the proper terpenes involved, your understanding of the flavor profile would remain incomplete. Two of the most dominant terpenes found in this strain are Caryophyllene and Myrcene. These two dominant terpenes influence several aspects of the strain, like the flavor, aroma, and, to some extent, the general effects.
Caryophyllene is a terpene that has a flavor profile that is slightly spicy, with a woody and dry undertone, and can make an individual feel laid back and calm. Meanwhile, Myrcene is the terpene that is present in most fruits like mangoes, lemongrass, etc. This has a sweet and citrusy flavor that is coupled with potent couch-locking effects.
When explaining the experience, you need to consider the delivery method that a user might be using. When smoked, the effects might last for an hour or two. While the effects of edibles can last considerably more than that.
Regardless of the delivery or the consumption method, you need to be ready for a giggle-filled conversation. Users say that the effects are felt as soon as somebody takes his or her first drag. If smoke consistency matters to you, then this bud is known for the right amount of smoke that is neither thick nor thin.
As for the effects that one might feel, are a sense of freedom and sedation that can make you feel relaxed and in the zone. As the high would slowly try and subside, you would come down in a cleaner and more gradually. This is because of the clean 50/50 division of the Indica-Sativa ratio.
