Though Alchemy is a strain with an old-fashioned name, this cross between Chemdawg and Querkle is anything but stuffy. Alchemy is known for stimulating both the body and the mind, and it is considered a 50/50 hybrid.
Users of Alchemy often note the dynamic nature of its high, since it includes both mental stimulation and super relaxing (some describe it as tranquilizer-like) body effects. The high of Alchemy tends to start in the head and move downwards, and its effects can be considered quite long lasting. You might start in the afternoon with a burst of energy and creativity and eventually wind down to a deep and restful slumber at night.
Medical cannabis users rely on Alchemy to treat tension in the muscles, pain in the body, and even headaches. Some prefer this strain to treat issues like worries, depression or stress, thanks to its ability to boost the mood and clear the mind. Alchemy can be considered quite potent as cannabis strains go, so newer marijuana users may want to start slow or steer clear.
