Lastly, Wappa by Redecan Review
We saved the most popular for last. Wappa by Redecan review on Reddit states “A definite ‘go-to’ strain to have around all the time.” another user tells us “Bought an 8th of Wappa that smells fucking amazing. I’m afraid to try it for fear I’d be gone in a week.” So you get the jist. It’s really popular, effective and it smells like baby Jesus newly bathed.
The Wappa strain is legit. It is very dense, heady in it’s effects, potent in it’s body high and clean all the way through. Inhale and exhale are top notch. Consistently a light green bud with frosty tips and orange pistils AKA hairs. One of the strongest legal buds clocking in at a wapping 😉 26% THC on average. Has a clean weed taste. Not a gimmicky flavour just a nice full bodied herb.
