El Muerte is a pungent BC native marijuana strain known for inducing a deep full-body high and mind comfort together with thoughtful relaxation that quickly eases stress, pain, depression, and anxiety.
This true indica is one of the most powerful marijuana strains you’ll ever smoke. With a THC level of between 25 to 28%, El Muerte will completely knock you out and leave you couch-locked for hours.
Since its inception in the early 2000s, El Muerte has continuously awed marijuana enthusiasts with its fast-hitting full-body high and heavy calming and sedating effects that leave you feeling heavenly relaxed.
Like most indica-dominant strains, the high of El Muerte is said to be less mind-stimulating and more body-focused. Be that as it may, El Muerte is still an excellent choice for relieving stress after a stressful day at work.
Brace yourself for a very strong case of the munchies and a fairly ecstatic high which will rapidly shift into a completely relaxing full-body high.
At the onset, El Muerte begins with a powerful head buzz that will cheer you up and calm your mind. You’ll suddenly feel all pumped up, energized and ready to get stuff done. However, this cheerfulness will be cut short by El Muerte’s strong indica traits which gradually kick in, leading to an over the top body relaxation.
As the high builds up a strong uplifting feeling will wash over you, and you’ll feel more and more relaxed. Before long, your mind will turn spacey, and you’ll fall into a beautiful dream-like state of introspection.
Cheerful and energized during the initial stage, El Muerte little by little lets loose its extremely sedating traits to put you into a passed out state and full-blown body relaxation. You’ll get lost in deep introspection and spaciness and eventually drift into a peaceful, undisturbed sleep.
Appearance, Flavor, and Aroma
When it comes to appearance, this rare 100% indica-dominant hybrid has clammy and very pungent buds that reek of diesel and skunk. Its enticing buds are green in color and have a very small amount of tiny purplish hairs here and there. Covering every bud is a sticky layer of trichomes.
El Muerte has a surprisingly pleasing musky and diesel-like aroma. Its aroma is distinct and very easy to distinguish from other musky and diesel-like cannabis hybrids.
Tastewise, El Muerte tastes like its distinct aroma. A combination of heavy diesel and a sweet citrusy blend with notes of lemon and wood on the exhale.
El Muerte is a beautiful-looking plant with broad leaves. Although it is highly resistant to pests and diseases, it requires a lot of attention. It is, therefore, not the best strain to cultivate if you’re a beginner.
El Muerte doesn’t grow too tall and can be cultivated indoors or outdoors. However, because of its pungent smell, it should be cultivated outdoors.
Its flowering time is between eight to nine weeks, and each plant can produce up to fifteen ounces of high-quality flower.
Thanks to its indica nature, El Muerte has a lot of medical benefits. Once you’ve smoked El Muerte, its powerful indica traits will take over your entire body and mind making you completely relaxed and zoned out. You’ll slowly fall into a deep sleep only to wake up after hours feeling perfectly rejuvenated.

Additionally, the ability of El Muerte to uplift the spirit and relax the whole body makes it effective at easing stress, anxiety, and depression.
El Muerte is also a great natural pain reliever. Its powerful sedating features also help minimize inflammation.
Possible Side Effects
