I personally felt that the effects of the strain arrive in waves. The first wave will demonstrate sativa-dominant effects. These effects include a feeling of sedation, high, and relaxation. In my case, the strain felt like a refreshing waterfall that washed away my inhibitions, fears, amd apprehension.
The next wave was taken care of by close proximity. Suddenly, after 45 minutes of ingestion, I started feeling the effects of a cerebral high. My thoughts became clearer, and I was able to put them into clearer words. As a result, this strain was great for a creative person like me.
The final wave is sedation and body high. Once you are done firing your brain on all cylinders, it is time for you to lie down. The strain makes sure that you get your couch time.

As a result, this strain can be a little too much to handle for some people. In this section, we will look at some of the potent side effects of the strain so that you can approach the strain cautiously.
Increased heart rate: This strain is infamous for shooting up your heart rate. This is because of the sativa lineage of the strain. Hence, people with cardiac issues need to be wary of or avoid this strain.
Decreased blood pressure: This is the Indica lineage of the strain working. The indica strain sedates individuals by lowering their heart rate and blood pressure. People who already suffer from fluctuating BP must be wary of or avoid this strain altogether.
Dry mouth: Cannabis as a whole is like a sponge for the body. It seeps out moisture and dehydrates the body. As a result, this can leave your mouth dry and smelling. I suggest that you keep yourself hydrated while consuming this strain in a smoke format.
Loss of coordination: The Mochi strain might be a 50% sativa strain, but it still demonstrates some dark effects of Indica-dominant strains. One big side effect of the strain is loss of coordination. People who have experienced cannabis overdose have clearly said that this strain has the capability to mess with your motor functions. I personally felt that my head was becoming increasingly heavier with every minute. So, be ready to experience some challenges while traversing while being high on this strain.
Hallucinations: There is always a one-in-a-million chance that the Mochi strain might hijack your senses and induce potent hallucinations. Ths is very rare and is usually because of pre-existing mental ailment. Patients who are on drugs like Olanzapine, Amisulpride, Ziprasidone, Quietapine, Haloperidol, etc., should stay away from this strain.
Paranoia or panic attacks: In some cases, the mochi strain can go overboard and induce extreme paranoia and anxiety attacks. Even though I had a good experience with the strain, one of my friends claimed that he felt bouts of panic attacks. According to his words, his palms were sweaty, and he was having trouble breathing. So, do not underestimate the potency of this strain.
Green out: This is like every negative effect packed into one single thing. In extreme cases, users can experience the mother of all bad trips. A greenout is nothing but feeling extremes of cannabis overdose. Symptoms of cannabis overdose can be varied and can even lead people to be taken to the ER.
Even though the Mochi strain is a highly popular strain among balanced hybrid lovers, it is not a well-documented strain. In other words, growing information on this strain is limited. As of now, the Sherbinskis are yet to release the official seeds. Since the official seeds are under lock and key, there is no way that you will be able to get the seeds from official channels. So, cloning or borrowing from a fellow grower is your best bet.
Even if you do manage to source some cannabis seeds, you still need to overcome the hurdle of growing the strain. According to several growers, the Mochi strain is one of the hardest strains to grow. But a full-grown Mochi weed plant will yield around 300 and 900 grams per square meter.
According to veteran growers, the strain has a lifecycle of around 12 to 15 weeks and flowers at around 9 to 10 weeks old. Therefore, you need to be very careful while growing this strain, as the margin of error is very small during the flowering period.
