Edelweiss (literally noble white) was named after the famous white flower which grows in the high Alps, Though the bulky Indica buds and the delicate white blooms of the mountain flower may not look similar at first glance, they share qualities such as the star shaped leaflets around the flower-tops and the thick white coating on those leaves.
Naturally, in the case of the marijuana strain, this is coating is sticky resin that also frosts the buds.
For a brief period, Edelweiss ganja could be found growing in all across Switzerland, in much greater abundance than its namesake.
Those tolerant days are sadly over, but Edelweiss cannabis lives on as an indoor, feminised strain.
Made from a blend of Hindu Kush, North Indian and Skunk, this is a mostly-Indica hybrid with just enough Sativa background to perk up the powerful stone.
