Even though it’s an Indica dominant (albeit only just), Moon Drops has around 20% to 22% THC and moderate CBD. This means that although the pain relief is at the sort of level you’d expect from the headline THC figures, the high is a bit more mellow than it would be if the strain were pure Sativa, think happy and upbeat rather than euphoric and bursting with energy. Likewise, the body stone is quite a bit lighter than you’d expect from a pure Indica, although it’s still very relaxing and you’re still going to need to be sure to leave yourself plenty of recovery time before doing anything complicated, such as driving.
In principle Moon Drops can be grown both indoors and outdoors, but in practice the mid-October harvest means that Moon Drops is only likely to be really happy outdoors towards the southern end of Europe. Indoors it will need 10 weeks of flowering, which is a bit longer than average for an Indica dominant, but very reasonable for a strain with such a high percentage of Sativa genetics. Similarly, while its height range of about 1M (indoor minimum) to about 1.8M (outdoor maximum) is also on the taller side for an Indica dominant, it’s still much more compact than many strains with a lot of Sativa genetics. Yields are also very reasonable at up to 550g/m2 indoors and 300g per plant outdoors.
