Armageddon is a sativa dominant hybrid strain (80% sativa/20% indica) with unknown genetics due to breeder secrecy. Although the exact parentage of this strain remains unknown, it is often said to be a member of the Skunk family due to its appearance. Armageddon has been nicknamed “The One Hit Wonder” by the cannabis community due to its intense body and head highs and moderately high THC level, which ranges from 15-17% on average. The Armageddon high is often described as an intense euphoric, hungry trip with tingly feelings throughout the body, most often concentrated in the hands, neck, and face. These intense effects are accompanied by full body and mind relaxation and pain relief as well as a sense of calm and well-being. You’ll feel happy, uplifted and creative, yet lazy with mild couch-lock and an intense case of the munchies. Due to these effects, Armageddon is often used to treat depression and anxiety. Armageddon has a pungent tropical citrus aroma and a spicy woody taste with a hint of citrus upon exhale. This dank bud has super dense, oversized dark olive green nugs with bright minty green leaves and fiery orange hairs. These nugs are caked in a layer of thick crystal white trichomes and are practically dripping with resin.
Specifically, shatter that’s higher in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will tend to be sappier than a product with a higher level of tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA), which will be much more brittle by comparison. At room temperature, THC is a sappy oil, giving shatter with a high THC content a more viscous consistency, whereas THCA is solid at room temperature, yielding a fragile concentrate that’s easier to break apart.
