Albert Walker

Albert who? No one seems to know. The exact genetics of this indica-dominant hybrid are almost anybody's guess, though many believe it was first bred in the Washington State or Oregon as a descendant of Afghan Skunk. Some tests show moderate THC levels, at least 15%, while others suggest a higher amount, more than 19% in some cases. CBD levels, though, are decidedly low, less than 1%, so this strain probably shouldn't be used as a front-line treatment for epilepsy. The sativa/indica ratio is 40:60, and the indica genes deliver a blend of head and body effects: relaxation, sleepiness, euphoria, creativity, and happiness. These make Albert Walker a good tool in treating low mood, insomnia, stress, chronic pain, and headaches. While there are few reports of negative effects, dry mouth and bloodshot eyes should be expected. This strain both tastes and smells like lemons, with a strong skunky aroma. The bud is a colorful mix of light green, gray, and brown, all covered with a heavy coat of resinous trichomes. Sold almost exclusively on the West Coast, this delicacy is worth the search required to find it.
