What happens when you cross a space-themed Apollo 13 strain with Black Russian? You get Sputnik, a strain named after the satellite the Soviet Union launched into a quick orbit around the Earth in 1957. Sputnik has an aroma of a sweet fruit with hints of sour and diesel when exhaled. Patients typically look to Sputnik for relief of chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia.
“I love Sputnik. It has such a good flavor and keeps me active. It is an intense head high that I really enjoy if I'm going out and doing things. Don't tend to get the munchies or anything on this, but cotton mouth is a factor. Still, the high is great.”
