Red Congolese and its Sativa genetics can be traced to the mix of Afghani and Mexican strains. Upon opening the container, it looks like it is going to be an amazing smoke session. The shiny trichomes and red shade make this Sativa strain look some tasty medication.
The wild dark orange hairs that cover the flowers made it stick out from the rest of the strains we have reviewed. It’s obvious where this strains name comes from.
We weren’t blown away by the smell of Red Congolese by any means. The taste also left more to be desired, although it did leave the typical haze (musky, honey, wood) taste on your palette for some time.
The effects were extremely clearheaded and made it very easy to focus on any specific task. We love thinking stains like this and wouldn’t be opposed to having it again, though it wouldn’t be our favorite by any means. Its probably best that patients use this as a morning strain; perfect with a glass of orange juice and a bowl to gather your thoughts for the day.
While some argue that Red Congolese is an African sativa landrace, the variety popularized in California weaves in Mexican and Afghani roots, giving it a more indica-like appearance. This colorful palette of landrace strains, which had adapted to their environment over many years, creates a complex profile of effects and flavors. The sativa genetics dominate the physical effects of Red Congolese, resulting in a weightless euphoria that promotes focus and mental clarity. Its energizing properties make Red Congolese perfect for morning treatment of nausea, cachexia, tension, or Alzheimer’s.
It is not hard to imagine that most people would argue that the Red Congolese hails from Africa. After all, its name is suggestive. But most others also take a look at how the plant looks like and decide otherwise. Its Indica-like appearance, they say, suggests it comes from Mexican and Afghani roots.
