Animal Face Strain

If you are wondering, let us explain – the bud of the Animal Face marijuana strain does not look like an animal’s face. Instead, this strain gets the name from its parents. It is a cross between the Faceoff OG and the Animal Mints strain. This rare hybrid has about 80% sativa and 20% indica genes. The THC levels are also quite high at 25%, even getting up to as high as 30%. The CBD levels, if any, are unknown.

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period
80%/20% 1-2 ounces per square foot 2 to 4 ounces per square foot 9-11 weeks indoors, around end of September outdoors

Initiated by the Seed Junky Genetics, this strain is popular for its all-encompassing high. It numbs the body and mind, making it ideal for people looking for mental and physical relaxation. The potent effects hit gradually and increase with each inhale. The effect is immediate – you’ll feel it from the first inhale.

The buzz is heavy. It will leave you feeling uplifted and relaxed at the same time. Humulene, limonene, and caryophyllene terpenes further add to the fragrant and flavorful prominence. Lemony sweet, the aroma of this bud is quite complex, making it extremely enjoyable. Animal Face is amongst the nicest marijuana strains worth sharing with friends during a casual get-together at home.

Animal Face Strain Adverse Reactions  

While rare, certain consumers can experience some negative side-effects with Animal Face. Thankfully, you can manage these by taking a few precautions. Since the THC levels are quite high in this strain, it is quite potent. That means the cerebral high can feel like a freight train if you are not too careful or if you smoke too much too fast. Therefore, start with small doses. You can gradually increase the amount as you get more comfortable with the strain’s effects.  

The body high, too, can get to be a little too much for some to handle. If you are new to marijuana smoking, be sure to have few friends around if you decide to smoke it. Those new to this strain may experience the munchies and thirst after enjoying this hybrid. So, stock up on tasty treats and water before you begin your session. 

Growing Animal Face Strain 

As exciting as it may be for home growers to cultivate this hybrid, finding Animal Face strain seeds can prove rather difficult. The creators, Seed Junky Genetics, wasn’t too interested in  making the seeds available for purchase in the first place. So, cloning is the next best bet. For the lucky few able to grow this plant, it’s best to find the help of an experienced grower, as the difficulty is considered moderate. Its moderate difficulty may be due to how easy it will be to keep this plant healthy.  The resistance of this strain to diseases like mold or mildew is unknown.

Animal Face is a sativa-dominant strain. Thus, it is only logical for some of those traits to show up in this plant’s vegetative phase. Animal Face plants grow to heights of 30-60 inches, whether cultivated indoors or out. So, expect medium to tall plants at the end of the vegetation cycle. We don’t know enough about its ideal growing environment to make suggestions; however, it probably enjoys plenty of light.

We do know a little about where to grow them. These plants grow best in indoor conditions where aspects like light, humidity, and temperature can be controlled. So, growers may want to consider investing in plant lights and closed space drip systems to produce dense, dark-colored nugs with bright amber trichomes.  


The flowering time indoors for Animal Face strain seeds is 9-11 weeks (54-66 days). However, ten weeks (60 days) is the sweet spot for the hybrid’s bloom cycle, according to some grow diaries. Around this period, the flowers strike the best balance between THC levels and bag appeal.  


Indoor setups make it easy to maintain and look after these plants during the flowering period. Harvest time will once again depend on the phenotype, but it takes 77-84 days to realize an indoor yield of 1-2 ounces per square foot.
