Oral History

Sometimes labeled as a pure sativa, Red Congolese may more accurately be called a 80/20 hybrid due to the Afghani genetics that have been crossed into it to stabilize the strain. Terpenes also give Red Congolese the ability to make your lungs work better (bronchodilation) and a more powerful pyschoactive effect. The buds glisten with a web of trichomes and are covered in bright red hairs, and our DragonFish Red Congolese can often hit above 30% THC and is our highest testing strain. Red Congolese has a quick onset with a potent cerebral high, extremely euphoric and wonderful for concentration and productivity. Some sources note Red Congolese as having appetite suppressing qualities, possibly indicating higher amounts of THCV.
