Butterscotch Kid is a sativa-dominant hybrid with a sweet, candy-like aroma. Its high is also said to last longer than average. Butterscotch Kid’s THC content has been measured at between 18% and a staggering 26%.
When properly cured, Butterscotch Kid’s flowers smell very sweet, with some overtones of toasty cocoa. On closer inspection, there is also a dank, earthy aroma. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open Butterscotch Kid’s flowers gives off herbal and floral base notes, passed on from Lavender. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Butterscotch Kid burns with a smooth and easily palatable smoke. This smoke tastes nutty and sweet on the exhale, almost like a flavored coffee.
Unsurprisingly given its sativa background, Butterscotch Kid’s high hits the user quickly. Initial effects include a mounting blood pressure around the eyes and temples and some flushing in the cheeks. Once they adjust to these odd sensations, smokers may note that their thoughts have taken on an elevated quality — they may be more attuned to surrounding stimuli like bright colors or loud sounds, and may even feel their thoughts jumping around in free association. This cerebral energy is accompanied by a kind of euphoria in which any prior stresses or preoccupations of the day begin to dissipate. Given this combination of mental stimulation and a laid-back attitude, many consumers may find that Butterscotch Kid can facilitate creativity allowing for open-ended brainstorming or artistic projects. This strain’s ability to clear anxiety and inhibitions even makes it a powerful aphrodisiac in the right set and setting. After a while, waves of physical relaxation roll down the neck and spread through the spine and core. Previously active smokers may want to take a load off and lounge on the closest comfortable couch. Butterscotch Kid isn’t likely to totally incapacitate its consumers, though — instead, the easygoing feeling that creeps in on its backend can serve to take the edge off of any previous jumpiness or overstimulation from the high’s onset. Users can kick back and still maintain mental lucidity, leaving them free to take on a mountain of work or simply to enjoy some buzzy conversation with friends. Because of its gradual taper off into relaxation, Butterscotch Kid is recommended for enjoyment between late afternoon to early evening.
Butterscotch Kid can also have some applications for medical cannabis patients. Its uplifting vibes can temporarily soothe the symptoms of stress and depression, while its cerebral focus can aid concentration for those with attention deficit disorders. Butterscotch Kid can also relieve physical pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like arthritis or lupus.
