California Kush is a nice, well rounded hybrid strain
which is Indica dominant. It has nice large compact buds with a large number of leaves. The flowers will appear with the color light green mixed with a orange hairs, and as a bonus, has trichomes scattered throughout. The aroma of the buds themselves are a fruity and somewhat citrusy smell, mixed with dark coffee undertones, all of which are present in the taste of the smoke. When smoking Cali Kush, spiciness replaces the fruity smell, and the coffee aroma is much more prominent. The side effects are nice and balanced, leaving you feeling happy, lazy, and sleepy but without giving you couchlock. Whilst it is mostly used for stress medically, its seen a lot of use to treat insomnia, pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression.
With THC concentrations in the region of 9% to 13%, California Kush isn’t going to blow your head off. And nor should it, as it was developed to deliver an enjoyably balanced and controlled high that won’t take you over the edge. A great session strain, California Kush will give you a sense of instant contentment, laziness, lethargy and positivity, without going so far as to hit couchlock or euphoria. In medical cannabis circles, California Kush is routinely turned to for the treatment of depression, anxiety, insomnia and muscle pain.
If you’re picking up a batch of the stuff for your own enjoyment, keep your eyes peeled for two equally tasty variants that are currently doing the rounds. There’s the ‘standard’ Indica-dominant type that by far the most popular, but every now and again you might come across a rarer Sativa-dominant version too. And of course, effects of the high listed above will vary in accordance with which of the two types you pick up, so be sure to ask questions rather than taking this Cali girl for granted
