G-13 is a famous hybrid that is believed to have been created by the U.S. government. While it has been shrouded in much mystery, G-13 is known to be a 70:30 sativa:indica hybrid. However, marijuana users will debate as to if it is more indica than sativa due to the effects it creates. It is discernable by the plethora of trichomes and visible THC crystals. It is believed to have originated some time during the 60’s or 70’s within a CIA or FBI lab that was testing THC levels on 23 different strains with slight variations. Each strain was labeled as G 1-23, with G-13 showing the strongest potential. G-13 is believed to be an Afghani strain.
G-13 has a unique high, in that the hybrid nature of indica and sativa is not clear as to which one is more dominant. Boasting a nearly 27% THC content on the high end, G-13 works well for experienced smokers or those with severe ailments. While the G-13 indica side produces excellent pain relief of a typical indica, the sativa aspect allows for clear thinking, eliminating most of the drowsy effects associated with indicas. G-13 is effective for treating chronic pain, loss of appetite, anxiety, glaucoma, PTSD and other stress related ailments, headaches, arthritis, general stomach issues, and lupus.
