In-Depth Details: Bordello Strain Profile
The Bordello strain is a 75/25 indica-dominant hybrid first propagated by an unknown breeder. There isn't a lot of information out there on which exact strains were bred together to make Bordello since it may have come from bagseed, but the general consensus is that the strain is a cross between the Alexis strain and the Blackberry Apocalypse strain. It's been around for years and is considered a classic cannabis strain that can be found in dispensaries all over the world checking in between 18 and 23% THC.
Bordello offers a lot of unique terpenes that make it feel more potent than the percentages would imply, though. This heavy-hitting and largely sedative strain consist of b-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Pinene terpenes which are all excellent for physical relief and balanced cerebral effects. They're also responsible for Bordello's unique aroma, which is similar to coffee as well as blackberries and blueberries. However, it also emits a rich earthy musk reminiscent of a wet pine forest.
The flavor of the strain is also a nod to its terpene profile. Bordello buds taste a lot like they smell thanks to the sheer number of terpenes within the flowers. However, unlike the aroma, Bordello is more fruit forward, bringing those blackberry and blueberry flavors front and center in the rich peppery smoke. Those earthy notes make an appearance within the smoke, bringing out notes of coffee and earth. The aftertaste however is largely piney with a nice earthy flair to it.
That said, there's a lot to love about Bordello without even seeing it. It's quite easy on the eyes though, offering dense, round buds in shades of light and dark green. In cooler climates, they can throw shades of purple towards the end of the flower cycle, which contrasts beautifully with the bright orange pistils. Bordello colas are quite dense, throwing lots of crystalline trichomes and tightly packed buds.
Smoking Bordello is always a treat since the effects kick in practically immediately and settle in the body first. Many people commend Bordello for this effect as it starts in the back of the eyes, relieving pressure. This makes it one of the top choices for medical patients seeking relief from glaucoma. Regardless, this tingly body high is ultimately soothing and relaxing. You will find yourself melting into your furniture in higher doses. However, you'll also love the upbeat cerebral effects that will leave you feeling uplifted and happy. Unlike other indica-dominant highs, Bordello's mental effects aren't too foggy. You'll still feel pretty focused and upbeat, which breeds creativity.
All of these effects coupled with a great potency and mix of therapeutic terpenes makes the Bordello strain an excellent nighttime medicine for patients in Colorado Springs. The tingly body high is great against eye pressure, headaches and migraines ad well as physical pain or inflammation and muscle spasms. Many patients also reach for Bordello when the symptoms of depression or PTSD take hold at nighttime. It is unmatched against stress and insomnia, too.
Just keep in mind that Bordello, like most medical cannabis strains, does come with a few side effects like dry eyes and cottonmouth. For those who are sensitive to tingly body highs, it may also cause anxiety and couch lock. With that in mind, be sure to start with a low dose with any new strain to see how it will affect you before taking a normal dose. Cannabis is an excellent medicine for managing chronic symptoms, but it isn't a cure-all. It's just a safe, effective alternative for the treatment and management of many chronic symptoms.
All in all though, Bordello is a great choice for Colorado Springs medical marijuana patients seeking relief from physical and mental ailments during the day or at night. Its cannabinoid and terpene potencies along with its balanced effects make it one of the most popular choices when it comes to strains among patients who visit our dispensaries here in Colorado Springs.
The Epic Remedy's Bordello Strain Review
The word bordello is a synonym for a brothel, which is kinda funny to me because this strain makes people so tired that comparing it to the energy in a cat house makes it seem like a huge misnomer. But I digress. There's a lot more to the Bordello strain than a name that piques interest.
The strain has a beautiful appearance to people like me. To others, it looks pretty ordinary when compared to some of these hyper-colored hype strains you see all over the place these days. It has plenty of color beneath the trichome blanket, and those orange and purple hues contrast with each other gorgeously.
More important is ultimately how the strain feels, though — and it's awesome. The strain is extremely soothing and relaxing. You'll feel it behind the eyes first and foremost as it sends you into a nice tingly body high. That said, there really is no better cannabis medicine for headaches. If you suffer from eye pressure thanks to glaucoma, you'll like this kind of a relief too.
I really like it for nighttime after I've worked out and then sat in a chair all day and my body hurts from existing. It'll help you slip into a more comfortable headspace after a super long day of work, too. The high is pretty cerebral and uplifting, though it isn't cumbersome so if you need some of that eye pressure relief during the day, you'll still be able to get things done.
However, if you're using it during the day, Bordello should be used sparingly. It is a highly relaxing and sedative strain, so less is more when you have things to do. If not, slip into that relaxation and rest.
All in all, if you haven't had the chance to try some Bordello for yourself, be sure to stop by any one of our three Colorado Springs medical dispensaries.
