According to tests from Steep Hill Labs in Berkeley, CA, Doug’s Varin’s THC content can range from 19–21% and 15–24% THCV.
After the first whiff of Doug’s Varin and you’ll notice an earthy, pine aroma with sweet citrus notes. These hints of citrus carry over to the flavor, which is lemony with a woody aftertaste. This marijuana strain’s flowers are neon green with gold hairs and crystal trichomes.
Cannabis consumers can expect clear-headed, cerebral effects that provide a quick burst of energy. A great wake and bake marijuana strain, Doug’s Varin encourages focus and mental stimulation.

Medical marijuana patients suffering from panic attacks, stress, fatigue and PTSD may benefit from Doug’s Varin. The high THCV content may be helpful in alleviating convulsions, making Doug’s Varin a good choice for patients with Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy.
