For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some Dancehall made by Spinach. I was expecting to start busting out some crazy dancehall moves after smoking this; unfortunately, that did not happen. I did enjoy this strain very much, though.
This flower’s cannabinoid content is a 1:1 ratio, so it has a great balance of CBD and THC. This one specifically had 6% THC (usually between 5 and 10%) and 8.2% CBD (usually between 5 and 10%). It’s a sativa dominant hybrid strain (60% Sativa, 40% Indica) with a terpene profile dominated by myrcene, pinene, and caryophyllene.
The lineage is quite interesting here, Dancehall was bred by Reggae Seeds by crossing Juanita La Lagrimosa (a Mexican-Afghani-Spanish hybrid) with Kalijah (Blue Heaven crossed with a Mexican-Afghani hybrid).

- Frequently Asked Questions
The colors on this frosty Dancehall strain make this weed really stand out; you can see the dark green buds with dark orange, almost reddish pistils sticking out while covered with healthy-looking trichomes. There are also spots of purple and navy blue around the bud.
It wasn’t the freshest flower I’ve tried, as it was packaged for more than 6 months when I smoked it, so the dryness is definitely there. The nugs’ size wasn’t too consistent, as there were some popcorn nugs but some decent-sized nugs as well.
The scent of this bud is very pleasant overall; it’s a mix of piney, sour and spicy aromas, then there’s a sweet and almost melon-like undertone that starts creeping through once you start to break up the nugs. This strain’s terpene profile emits quite unique and specific smells, and I would love it if they were a little less subtle.
I’m looking forward to trying out a fresher batch of this Dancehall strain specifically because I feel like the packaging date here does not let me experience the full flavor and aroma. It tasted nice; it’s a subtle earthy flavor on the inhale, with some diesel/piney/citrusy notes on the exhale.
The smoke was very smooth, and the joint burned well. I still feel like some freshness’s missing here; a humidity pouch might do wonders for this strain.
The effects that I felt after smoking some of this Dancehall strain were gratifying for me, but as you know, this portion of the review is quite subjective. If you’re looking to get really stoned, I don’t believe that this one’s for you. It gave me euphoric and happy vibes while staying focused on the task at hand; this weed did not slow me down whatsoever.
Very similar effects to other 1:1 ratio strains like Shark Shock by Hexo . This is probably my favorite aspect of this entire Dancehall strain review.
I would recommend this strain to both everyday smokers and beginners as well. However, If you’re trying to get super high, this won’t get you there. If you want to feel a slight buzz mixed in with all the anti-anxiety and stress-relieving qualities that CBD has, this is a perfectly balanced strain.
It’s some good daytime weed as it keeps you functional and focused; I wouldn’t try this for insomnia. I was also hoping that it would improve my dancehall skills; unfortunately, there’s probably no weed on the planet that would help me with that.
- Harlequin: With a similar 5:2 CBD:THC ratio and dominant terpenes like myrcene and pinene, Harlequin provides similar effects to Dancehall with a more pronounced herbal flavor profile.
- Mango Haze: Mango Haze is another 1:1 strain with a similar terpene profile to Dancehall, including myrcene and pinene, but also adds a sweet mango flavor and uplifting cerebral effects.
- Warlock: For those seeking a stronger high, Warlock is a potent Indica-dominant strain with similar terpenes to Dancehall, such as caryophyllene, and provides relaxing effects with a piney and earthy flavor.
