- Not to be confused with Berkeley, California
Berkeley is a sativa strain of cannabis. It is rumored to have originated as a botany project of a student at the California institution of the same name. According to Leafly, "This strain is certainly an overachiever with its extremely high THC content and lightning fast flowering time—as short as 4 weeks! Berkeley is known to give energetic, buzzy effects that are typical of sativas. This strain will stimulate your mind, but beware, it may cause anxiety for some users."
