This Sativa dominant Mekong High is named after the mighty Mekong River, which runs from the Tibetan Plateau through China, Burma, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam until it spills into the South China Sea some 2,610 miles later. The particular strains that have been used to create this fine weed come from the tropical jungles on the borders of Laos and Vietnam.
When you smell Mekong High, you’ll think of fresh green herbs and the taste continues this theme. The high is quick-acting and euphoric and this is a good weed for daytime use. This strain doesn’t have a strong reputation for medical use, but it can certainly help people with appetite problems.
These plants have a lanky growth habit with exceptionally long, jungle-green leaves and elongated buds. They can grow to a height of two metres and more. Sometimes, the plants take on a purple hue as they mature. THC content is between 15 and 20 percent.
Mekong High seeds do well with the SCROG growing method and are equally happy in soil or hydro. Flowering time is quite quick for a Sativa type at eight to nine weeks and indoor yield is between 400 and 500 grams per square metre.
With its steamy jungle background, this weed will only thrive outdoors if you plant it somewhere with a sub-tropical or warmer climate. Outdoor harvest in the northern hemisphere comes in mid-October.
This Mekong High review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning that this weed’s old school Sativa heritage gives it a pleasingly retro feel when it comes to both its taste and its high. Mekong High is definitely worth thinking about if you consider yourself a connoisseur of sativa weed strains.

One comment on Mekong High
Can anyone help? I have a lovely bushy looking plant, growing outdoors. It all looks very healthy but it is now mid-September and there are no signs of it flowering, although it is now producing purple leaves. I am 99.9% sure it is a female. Should I be worried? Is there any way I can kickstart the flowering process or should I just bide my time? I am somewhat of a novice at this. Any help greatly appreciated.
