All hail Willie! America’s favorite outlaw country star is also the living patron saint of marijuana users, recreational and medical alike. The popular medical selection that bears his name is a sativa-heavy blend of Vietnamese Black and Highland Nepalese (sativa/indica ratio of at least 60:40). The effects are reportedly creative and clear-headed, with a strong dose of euphoria, a mood boost, and a shot of energy. Use Willie to treat daily stresses, anxiety, chronic physical pain, low mood, and nausea. Negative effects include dry mouth and red eyes, while paranoia, headaches, and dizziness are also reported. Willie Nelson, which took the top prize in the Best Sativa category at the 2005 Cannabis Cup, has THC levels in excess of 22% in some tests, making it an especially potent medical tool. But CBD numbers aren’t widely reported, so this strain shouldn’t be used as the only treatment for conditions that respond to that substance. Sweet pineapple, pepper, and soil are the dominant notes in the aroma and flavor of this strain, which can be found on most legal and black markets in the United States.
