Congo Guava, a rather obscure newcomer, competed in the 2014 Los Angeles Cannabis Cup. Beyond that, details about this strain are somewhat unreliable. It’s reputed to be a sativa-dominant hybrid with a sativa/indica ratio of 35:65. But the effects suggest an even closer match, as Congo Guava delivers a true mix of physical and cerebral high: relaxing, creative, tingly, sociable, and occasionally sleepy. Side effects could include paranoia, dry eyes, or dry mouth, though there’s little public information on the subject. Chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety may all be treated with this strain. The flavor is sweet, tropical, and fruity, while the aroma is similar. The nugs are a mix of dark and light green, together with amber hairs and a healthy layer of trichomes on the surface. THC levels are reportedly quite high, exceeding 18% in at least one publicly available test. But there is essentially no CBD in Congo Guava, making it a less-than-ideal choice for treating seizures or other conditions that respond to CBD. Found almost exclusively in Los Angeles and Oregon, this strain is worth a try, if only for bragging rights.
