Egyptians believed cats were magical creatures who brought good luck to the people who housed them. These treasured pets were dressed in jewels, often mummified along their masters to “protect” them from evil spirits. While cats are not as praised now, they are still pretty elegant animals known for their strong personality.
Just like these creatures, Cat’s Meow is a strong sativa-dominant strain that contains strong features. Bred in Hawaiian soils, it is believed that this strain is the result of the crossing of Wild Thai, Sage Kush and Cat’s Piss. These airy buds with bright green hues and amber hairs will wrap a pungent fruity aroma around you. Earthy and skunky notes are also sensed after a couple of hits, providing a smooth smoke. With an average 15% CBD content, Cat’s Meow is a great strain to unwind while remaining alert.
The pungent aromas of Cat’s Meow create a complex terpene profile. With myrcene, caryophyllene and humulene being the main terpenes in this strain, a fruity, skunky and earthy flavor profile is created. Besides providing plants and flowers with characteristic aromas, terpenes also deliver great benefits to the body and mind depending on their levels.
Cat’s Meow is a delectable strain that will provide physical relief and a calming sensation on your body. In addition, your mind will feel at ease, allowing you to focus when taken in small doses. Many users enjoy Cat’s Meow for enhancing productivity and relieving conditions like stress, pain, headaches and inflammation of the joints and nerves.
When it comes to terpenes, these compounds also play a big role in Cat’s Meow benefits. First, myrcene is the most abundant terpene found in hemp, and it contains anti-inflammatory and sedative effects, relaxing your body and mind. Then, caryophyllene is often associated with anti-inflammatory effects. Moreover, it helps regulate mood, since it is the only terpene to interact with the endocannabinoid system. Lastly, bisabolol is common in chamomile. This rare terpene creates subtle floral undertones in the Cat’s Meow strain, and it has powerful mood-boosting and calming properties.
When smoked in medium doses, Cat’s Meow may produce some sleepiness. In case you need a more sedative type of smoke session, you can use Cat’s Meow to get you to sleep.
Although the lineage of this strain is not confirmed, its phenotype can be linked to a mixture of Wild Thai, Sage Kush and Cat’s Piss. The terpene profile of Cat’s Meow makes it look like a Kush family relative, and some skunky aromas are very similar to those of Cat’s Piss. For this reason, taking a look to the properties of each of these strains may shed some light on this matter.
