P-51 delivers a stress-crushing, tranquilizing high that can
immobilize users who consume beyond individual tolerance. Its heavy-hitting
effects are also precisely why it earned the nickname ‘The Tranquilizer Dart.’
Still, it remains fan favorite among lovers of Indica strains as it is a
wonderful pre-bedtime companion.
The strain was developed by Clint Pipkin, who crossed Tahoe OG with Blackberry. The latter influenced P-51’s soothing euphoria and vigorous yields. However, it is the former that truly brought out its offspring’s top nighttime abilities such as inducing a heavy body high.

Apart from the recreational, the Indica also has therapeutic
benefits that ease the aches and pains of patients. Its distinct Indica buzz
earned it a nod from DOPE magazine, landing the title of ‘Strain of the Month’
for June 2015.

At up to 23%, P-51 delivers a powerful high. It can be quite
overwhelming at times especially when used beyond limitations. In moderation,
however, it delivers a pleasant high even for beginners.
With that said, its initial onset begins with a rush of euphoria that
spreads throughout the mind. It leaves one feeling happy from within as it
clears away distracting thoughts. The behavioral change is immediate too.
Smiles reach ear to ear as a flurry of giggles escape the mouth.
It is best to prepare snacks ahead of time. This is because, as the
subtly stimulating buzz trickles down from the temples, it also invigorates the
stomach. Hence, it should come as no surprise that users soon begin to feel a
little hungry. Having food nearby will not only save time in heading to the
kitchen, but also allow one to prepare for the upcoming Indica buzz.
After about an hour or two, the once subdued sensation begins to
intensify. It envelops the muscles in a deeply relaxing high until the body becomes
heavy. In all likelihood, as the effects persist, one’s eyelids begin to droop
until users inevitably fall asleep.
Because of its heavy-hitting effects, P-51 is best reserved for early
evening use as a pre-cursor to a sumptuous dinner as well as a relaxing cap
P-51 has a complex fragrance profile. It pairs pungent overtones of wet soil with the distinct chemical undertones of diesel. Broken apart or combusted, it releases a spicy scent with an herbal tinge.
Drawn in, P-51 explodes in the palate with a strong diesel flavor that entices
users for another puff. The subtle sourness later develops into an herbal taste
with earthy undertones lurking beneath. On the exhale, a spicy aftertaste
lingers in the mouth.
Dry eyes and a cottonmouth are two common reactions to smoking
marijuana, regardless of the strain. Regardless, all are mild and can easily be
remediated by staying hydrated throughout the day.
Although rare, dizziness and paranoia are also possible while smoking P-51. This is especially true for people who use beyond individual tolerance or are susceptible to the condition. While most only experience a headache, it is still important to pace consumption of the bud.
P-51 has a strong tranquilizing high that is most often used to relieve the daily stress that comes with work, school, and life in general. However, it can also be a source of comfort for patients dealing with chronic pain either as a result of disease or fatigue.
Its muscle relaxing properties soothe the body, removing aches in its
wake. Through a similar mechanism, P-51 also stabilizes turbulence in the
stomach that can often result in vomiting. As such, cancer patients may use the
strain to diminish the nauseating side effects of chemotherapy.
The same psychoactive compound also has a calming effect on the mind.
For example, its soothing euphoria calms the mind of overwhelming dread while
boosting the mood. For this reason, it is a wonderful stress reliever as well
as anti-depressant that can manage symptoms of mental health issues like
depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
P-51 is not a tall
plant. Its stalks are short and thick with a good number of branching. Not to
mention, it has a sturdy frame that can withstand a variety of unpredictable growing
conditions such as fluctuating temperatures.
Pruning the compact
plant is necessary when cultivating it indoors. Not only will this increase airflow,
it will also let more light circulate in the lower nodes. Apart from that,
removing dying or dead branches or leaves will distribute nutrients to
healthier parts to create bigger colas and produce more budding sites.
P-51 has an indoor flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks. Once ready for harvest, it yields at between 10 to 12 ounces of buds per square meter. However, under the Sea of Green method and the expert care of a seasoned grower, it can produce much more.
In the northern hemisphere, P-51 blossoms from the last week of September to the middle of October. A vigorous producer, each plant is expected to produce at least 12 ounces of buds.
