Washington Apple is a rare, pure indica cannabis strain that originates in Washington State. Mostly found in the PNW, the strain was bred by local brand Lopez Island. This highly potent strain is known for its sedative effects and relaxing properties, making it an ideal strain for those looking to relieve stress, anxiety, and pain.
Washington Apple Genetics
The Washington Apple strain was crafted by combining two uncommon strains, Pez and Ortega. This unique combination of genetics has resulted in a strain with a unique flavor and aroma profile, as well as a potentially potent and long-lasting high. With both parents derived from the landrace strain Afghanistan, Washington Apple is one of the few pure indica strains out there. In fact, there are two landrace strains in Washington Apple’s family tree. Its Pez parent is derived from Pakistan, which itself is a cross between two landrace indicas. Similarly, the Ortega side also contains classic indica strains, Northern Lights #1 and Northern Lights #5.
