The Bling strain—which should not be confused with the similarly named "Bling"—is a hybrid that is 75% indica and 25% sativa. It was created by combining the powerful Humboldt Frost X Reserve OG and Humboldt Gelato strains. The Bling, so named because of its exquisite beauty and million-dollar high, is the ideal strain for any fan of indicas. This bud features large, grape-shaped, vivid neon green nugs that dazzle in the right light. It also has a coating of small, milky amber crystal trichomes and a lot of thick, dark amber hairs. Aromas of delicious lemon-lime are unleashed when you break apart each sparkly small nugget, complemented by a dank punch of spicy grapes and pungent diesel.
The taste is somewhat lighter, with a savory diesel flavor that is complemented by tart lemon-lime and juicy fresh grapes. A mild tingle fills the back and spine, causing an energizing feeling that is the beginning of the Bling high. Your body will unwind and settle into the sofa with a physically heavy feeling that will make you feel heavy and immobile, but your mind will remain elevated and pleasantly relaxed. These benefits, along with The Bling's high 18–19% average THC content, provide it an advantage in the treatment of ailments like chronic pain, cramps or muscle spasms, melancholy, persistent stress, and sleeplessness.
