THC Concentration & History
Moby Dick is a sativa-dominant hybrid, 75% sativa, 25% indica, created by Dinafem when crossing the well-enjoyed White Widow, an indica-dominant hybrid, with the pure sativa, Haze.

This strain comes in two phenotypes: one which is sativa-dominant, reaching a giant 12 ft, while the other is an indica-dominant phenotype rarely seen or smoked. The high potency of this strain has made it one of the most popular strains in the world, as its colossal THC levels are one of the highest on the market!

Appearance & Aroma
Moby Dick’s aroma is characteristically complex, genetically predispositioned to be a masterpiece; it is starkly sweet with sharp citrus notes, emitting accents of Eucalyptus seeping through a floral undertone. Similar to Haze, this strain contains prominent notes of citrus fruits and smooth vanilla notes similar to White Widow. The overall product of these mixed characteristics make Moby Dick one of the most highly satisfying strains. The inhale itself is more gentle and less overwhelming, so you don’t have to worry about coughing out a fish! Much like the name suggests, this whale of a strain is dense and thickly grown like many other sativa strains. The buds range in shades of light to dark, with darker orange pistils, twirling between the rich and flavourful leaves. The leaves themselves are adorned with sweet trichomes which carry most of this strain’s THC content. Similar to other hybrids like the Black Diamond, Moby Dick’s crystals shine and sparkle under light, much like the sea itself!
