Fairy Tale Ending…Rainbow Road is an epic sativa dominant hybrid strain. It comes with the dial turned up to maximum for taste, effect and one of the biggest yields Paradise Seeds has engineered in its long history.
This is a strain that is finely tuned thanks to its balanced genetics. Its sweet and fruity nature makes it a must have for those with a nose for terpenes, a passion for racing sativas and a wish for beautiful big oily buds.
Hindu Kush provides the stable foundations for robust healthy growth, while Strawberry Sativa supplies the rocket fuel to take this plant to the next level.
Rainbow Road is a wonderful swirl of terpenes in the grow room where the scent of mango and strawberry is very pronounced.
Once dried, the buds retain this essence treating the user to a flavourful treat that accentuates the berry tones with a delicious potpourri of red fruits.
Difficulty Level: Medium
Indoors: This high performance plant may need a bit of training in a limited grow space as it displays a ferocious appetite for growth. Fast in veg state it will stretch again when it begins to flower, possibly doubling in size.
This growth spurt is accompanied by an intense sweet and fruity aroma and rapid development of unusually hard, dense buds thick with trichome crystal and oozing with resin.
This strain is a huge yielder and best results will come by letting it ride out its full 10 week maturation period.
Outdoors: In the outdoor environment, Rainbow Road will also rise to the occasion, shooting for the sun in warmer zones where the sun will boost its big yield capabilities.
In less sun kissed regions its sativa genes high calyx-leaf-ratio will give it good protection from moisture penetration.
Rainbow Road cannabis seeds will generate a plant that displays a monstrous capacity for growth, displaying classical tropical sativa traits. As this plant moves to flowering it forms elongated top cola buds, with a high calyx-to-leaf ratio, and pump resin as if their life depends on it. Lateral branches fill so heavy with buds, extra support may be required. The full 10 week flowering period is recommended for best results, and the harvest reward is a payload of rock hard buds with an unusually dense consistency.
Indoor Yield: 600 g per m² Outdoor Yield: 1000 g per plant
Recreational: The journey is one of electrifying ascent to energetic and clear headed heights, to be followed by a pleasant state of relaxation and deep inner balance. The Rainbow Road effect is characterized by a tendency to bring a grin to the user and a reminder to appreciate the simple pleasures of life while not getting sucked down by its stresses.
Medical: The sativa heritage of this plant provides the energetic uplift that has potential benefits for those who are looking for some relief from depression. The clarity and focus combined with the secondary relaxation effect after the initial wave, will also bring comfort to those who seek all day alleviation from pain while still functioning as normal.
Suitable for growing outside between 50º n.L. and 50º s.L., Rainbow Road will finish in mid October outdoors (n.L.) and after 9-10 weeks indoors. Estimated yield from is 600 g per m² indoors / 1250 g per plant outdoors.
Rainbow Road is a sativa dominant hybrid from Paradise Seeds that announces itself with a sweet and fruity nature (a combination of classic Hindu Kush and Strawberry Haze) and claims of being one of the biggest yielding sativas Paradise have produced in their 26 year history.
Germination and Vegetative Stage
Two seeds were germinated in a soil mix and the heads of the seedlings were showing above the surface after 2.5 days. The sativa heritage of Rainbow Road ensured an impressive initial growth surge – the plants topping 28cm and 32cm after three weeks. Both plants displayed fairly narrow shade leaves and four lateral branch pairs. After four weeks they had reached heights of 40cm and 48cm.
The Flowering Stage
The two plants continued to stretch and after four weeks of flowering the plants had increased their heights dramatically, almost tripling in size – displaying classic tropical sativa traits. The stretch was accompanied by aggressive flower production with ‘hairy’ compact flower clusters developing above and along the lateral branches and main stem.
After six weeks of flowering, both plants were showing monstrous capacity for growth and showed similar characteristics – the main shoot sticking out from the middle like a steep tower topped with an elongated top cola and a high calyx to leaf ratio.
Also noted at this stage was the copious resin production of both plants and a very intense scent of fruity sweetness, with definite shades of mango and strawberry. Such was fullness of the bud laden lateral branches that some support was required as they raced towards their harvests.
Both plants took the full 10 weeks to mature, but the wait was worth it. Both plants delivered a payload of unusually dense and rock hard buds, literally pulsating with trichomes and covered in incredibly lavish resin coats.
Final heights of the two Rainbow Roadplants were 155 cm and 135cm.
The combined yield from these two monsters was a huge 340 grams (yes that is correct!).
Smell and Smoke Report
The dried buds were impressive too, resin soaked and presenting themselves with a distinctive strawberry swirl to their scent. To test the taste and effect, a half gram of bud was rolled with a little tobacco into a long, thin joint. The first toke delivered a sensational sweetness that lingered on the lips even after the exhale. The flavor was the next pleasant surprise with that initial strawberry note becoming overtaken by a “delicious potpourri of red fruits” taste.
The effect was one of euphoria and clarity, accompanied by a permanent grin. This full throttle ascent into the stratosphere lasted for approximately 1.5 hours before the buzz levelled off into cozy relaxation and deep inner balance.
Strength runs through this plant – from its huge yield potential to the superb quality of its smell, taste and effect. Taking into consideration all these factors, Rainbow Road has all the makings of a plant that has the potential to become a new flagship in the Paradise Seeds fleet.
