Like the name would suggest Vortex is a highly psychoactive strain that can warp the senses of it's users. Some users feel the strain lift their spirits and energize them but others feel it drag them into a sitting or laying position from which they cannot escape.
Snagging Best Sativa from the 2010 High Times Cannabis Cup, Vortex is a cross of two of Subcool's The Dank's favorite strains. The mother of this strain is Apollo 13, a cross of Genius and Princess 75. She was crossed with a male Space Queen, or Space Dude, which is made up of Romulan and Cinderella 99. The result is a strain that tastes and smells like a mix of fruit.
Vortex's effects can suck away patient's anxiety, stress and depression. The strain may also used to find relief from migraines and headaches. Some patients may find it helps them focus, diminishing the chaos of ADD/ADHD. Others find it lessens their chronic aches and pains.
