Ortega, a classic strain, has been crossed with Northern Lights and back-crossed over the years. Still a 100% Indica strain, Ortega is a very good medicinal strain. This sweet and spicy herb helps patients deal insomnia and pain. Most patients feel an overwhelming desire to find something comfortable to curl up into as their pain fades away. Another notable trait is there seems to be morning after effect with this strain. Patients report waking up clear and refreshed after a good sleep. The flowering time for this strain is 8-10 weeks with a yield that is moderate to high. Not recommended for beginning growers unless you know how to maintain the size of your plant. You should also “veg” your plant for a month to strengthen your roots and maximize flower production during the flowering cycle.
