Boaty McBoatface Review
Tweed’s nod to the autonomous underwater vehicle on the RRS Sir David Attenborough whose name was derived from an online vote. Boaty McBoatface is a CBD dominant sativa strain that’s geared towards medical users. Expect a very mild high because of the low 3.5% THC with very prominent healing benefits thanks to the ~10% CBD.
Boaty McBoatface’s aroma is rather unique, I can’t say I’ve smelled a strain quite like it. The high levels of myrcene emparts a sweet, earthy smell. It’s a very clean smelling strain, far from the diesel / piney strains known for their high THC content. At first whiff it reminded me of a more pleasant indoor pool smell… Which doesn’t sound too great but it’s actually not bad.
The effects of Boaty McBoatface make it a perfect choice for new cannabis users or those who use cannabis primarily for the medical benefits. That being said, even as a more regular cannabis consumer I quite enjoyed the mild stone that Boaty McBoatface offered. It’s a very manageable high that left me feeling mildly euphoric without feeling high. The CBD comes through quite clearly as well. I felt very relaxed and stress-free. Personally I’m not dealing with any chronic pain or anxiety, but this would be a very helpful strain if you were.
Even if you’re regularly smoking 15% – 20% THC strains and normally wouldn’t look twice at a strain with such a low THC percentage, I urge you to give this strain a try.
