As its name suggests, Somango is an aromatic cultivar with a delectable, mango-like fragrance and flavor. It’s an original genetic recipe that was concocted by blending three wildly different variants: Super Skunk, Jack Herer and Big Skunk Korean. Apart from its distinct fruitiness, this 75% Indica specimen is also notable for its stimulating recreational and reliable medicinal effects.
Contrary to its sugar rush-inducing taste, this mouthwatering bud has a calming effect that makes it best suited to nighttime use. It carries an average THC load of 20%, and delivers a clear-headed, functional high and mild body stone. A favorite among artists and musicians, it promotes creative thinking, focus and productivity, encouraging procrastinators to get things done. It’s also been used to help treat stress, anxiety, depression, appetite loss, chronic pain and insomnia.
Somango produces medium-to-heavy yields and is relatively easy to grow. These regular seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. come with an equal male to female ratio, making them a great choice for breeders. They’re recommended as beginner weed seeds and they also work for intermediate-level growers who are willing to go through gender segregation.
Growing indoors, Somago grows to around 3 to 4 feet and around 6 feet growing outdoors. It develops long lateral branches and is an ideal cultivar for multi-branching. As it matures, its buds become covered in a thick layer of trichome crystals. When exposed to colder than usual nighttime temperatures late in the flowering period, it takes on an impressive and majestic purple coloration. In terms of the medium, it prefers soil with organic nutrients.
To get the most out of Somango, it’s best to cultivate it in a controlled environment. The temperature must be between 70 and 80°F, and the RH level should be between 40% and 50% for the duration of the 9 – 10 week flowering period. You can plant four or more plants in a Sea of Green (SOG) setup, which will produce around 1 – 1.63 ounces per square foot.
Somango can also be grown outdoors, and it thrives in locations with a Mediterranean climate such as California, Australia and Southern Europe. Harvest comes around late October in the northern hemisphere, and expected yields are between 12.3 and 19.4 ounces per plant.
Somango has a tropical, predominantly mango aroma that’s very difficult to resist – in fact, enthusiasts can easily sniff it out if it’s being smoked nearby. There are also subtle hints of fresh citrus and earthy herbs. The bud's taste mirrors its scent, but with an added pinch of vanilla and a slight spiciness.
Somango’s effects take a few minutes to fully manifest, so don't expect a sudden cerebral punch. It’s wise to approach it with caution and wait for the high to settle before taking another hit. Just sit back and savor the lovely fruity flavor until you begin to feel the relaxing wave ebbing at your arms and legs.
A mood-enhancing euphoric stimulation follows, along with a boost in creative energy and focus. Because the high is not the type that clouds the mind, a clear-headed experience comes as standard. Mobility will not be hampered as long as the doses are moderate, so you’ll still be free to go about your day.
Somango is a great cultivar to use when brainstorming, pursuing artistic activities, or in need of a general productivity-boost. It’s best to avoid consuming it in situations where giggling would be inappropriate, though. Reserving it for evening or post-work use is a good idea, since it has a lazy and sleepy effect as the high wanes.
Because Somango tastes so great, overindulging may be difficult to avoid. But if too much is taken, there can be some unwanted side effects. Apart from the usual cottonmouth and dry eyes, lightheadedness, headache, and increased anxiety may also be experienced in above-average doses.
Think of Somango as a nighttime dessert with loads of benefits. It delivers a clear-headed, functional high that promotes creative thinking, focus, and productivity. At the same time, it relaxes the body without limiting mobility, which helps in getting things done. The cultivar is also said to help appease stress, anxiety, depression, appetite loss, chronic pain, and insomnia. If this isn't a power cultivar, then nothing is.
Cultivators and breeders can get their eager hands on Somango regular seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. The plants produce medium-to-heavy yields, have a short flowering cycle of just 9 to 10 weeks, and are easy to grow. What more could you possibly ask for?
