At least two companies — TGA Genetics and Homegrown Natural Wonders — have seeds of Professor Chaos for commercial sale. Prospective growers may also be lucky enough to obtain clippings of this comparatively rare strain to grow as genetically identical “clones.” Professor Chaos can be cultivated indoors or outdoors, although outdoor growing calls for semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climates with daytime temperatures in the 70 degree Fahrenheit range. If grown indoors, this medium-height plant should be trained to fit into its grow space through the pruning and bending of branches early in the vegetative stage. Professor Chaos flowers within 8 to 9 weeks — a relatively short period of time for a sativa. Growers should also be warned that this is a very pungent strain, during both vegetative and flowering stages. Those looking to keep their operations discreet should invest in odor control measures like carbon air filter and exhaust fans.

With a rollicking high that stimulates thought but also entails physical relaxation, Professor Chaos is a great choice for a range of situations. Its energetic and alert nature works well in social situations, easing potential tension and driving conversation. It’s also appropriate for solo use, as it can push users to accomplish tasks they might otherwise find dull.
