Cement Shoes strain (aka Concrete Slippers, Concrete Shoes)
The sedating high is strong and intense — what you should expect with a name like Cement Shoes. Before we dig into all of that, here’s a quick rundown on this strains’ features:
Cement Shoes strain description
The Cement Shoes weed name is fitting because it renders your entire anatomy immovable while managing to keep your mind stimulated. The long-lasting and steady buzz is perfect for an overall body decompression.
You’ll be stuck for a while in total bliss, courtesy of the strains’ average THC content of 19% to 22%. With optimal growth conditions, the Cement Shoes strain’s THC can clock an impressive 24%.
From the Cement Shoes strain’s pictures, you can tell that it’s just begging to be smoked. The oversized, popcorn-shaped olive green nugs feature a thick coat of bright, white crystal trichomes and amber pistils that pop in the contrasting hues. They are also quite sticky, but we’re not complaining.
The strain emits a light minty and berry scent. Once lit up, the bud releases a pungent earthy scent. This bud has a citrusy and earthy taste for a savory combination. You’ll also notice hints of pine, pepper, and fruitiness from the aroma rounded off with a minty note when exhaling.
The heavy, thick smoke from the Cement Shoes strain is a precursor to the heavy couch-lock effect. This characteristic makes this robust slightly indica bud a true knockout.
You’ll first experience a cerebral high that starts with a tingling sensation on your temple. The calming sensation then spreads out to the rest of your body as your mind settles into a deep bliss.
The high is a serious creeper that builds up slowly but lasts long after the last hit—so puff cautiously. Beginners should take the Cement Shoes strain in moderation because the high THC can be overwhelming, and they might become anxious.
For most users, the only adverse reaction to overindulging is couch lock. Keep a glass of water nearby to help handle dry eyes and cottonmouth, and you’re good to go.
Because of its sedative nature, this strain is great if you have trouble sleeping. It also helps alleviate:
- Chronic stress
- Chronic pain
- Muscle spasms
Cement Shoes grow information
The Cement Shoes strain responds well indoors or outdoors and thrives in a sub-tropical climate. It’s as tough as they come, and beginner cultivators will appreciate that. It’s naturally resistant to pests and mold.
Keep humidity (RH 40% to 50%) and temperature (68 – 79 degrees Fahrenheit) at moderate levels. Pathogens such as mold and mildew are deterred if you maintain these conditions and manicure its leafage properly.
Despite an average height of five feet, the Cement Shoes strain’s yield is plentiful because this weed gets bushy. Indoors, expect to harvest in only 8 to 10 weeks and yield up to 17 ounces per square meter.
Outdoors, harvest buds from the Cement Shoes strain anytime during the year, but before mid-October to avoid frost if you’re further north. Here, expect a yield ranging from 19 to 21 ounces per plant.
Even though it does not affect this floras’ potency, expose it to cool night temperatures during flowering to make the bud sweeter, more colorful, and ultimately increase the bag appeal. However, keep temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent cold damage.
