Kush fans desiring a heavy bodied, dreamy high will enjoy Peppermint Kush. Barney’s Farm’s famous cross of Stella Blue and Nepali Kush boasts both unique flavors and rewarding yields.
Heritage & Genetics: Barney’s Farm created Peppermint Kush by crossing Dutch coffeeshop favorite Stella Blue with a heavy-hitting Nepali Kush. This combination of Stella Blue’s blueberry flavors with sturdy Nepali genetics is what makes Peppermint Kush the aromatic, high-yielding strain it is.
Flavor & Aroma: Peppermint Kush has a robustly earthy, spicy aroma, which is mellowed out by a minty and berry undertone. While it might not have the vintage lemon kick of many other Kush strains, the earthy, minty flavors are uniquely refreshing.
Effect: The potent hybrid of two great indica plants, Peppermint Kush’s average of 22% THC ensures strong effects. This strain brings a deeply relaxed feeling that is accompanied by a fast-hitting cerebral high. Indica-enthusiasts will appreciate this typically heavy body-stoned feeling and euphoric state of mind.
Medical: Ongoing research has found that in higher doses THC may help with Glaucoma, by reducing pressure in the eye. THC and CBD have also been found to have pain-relieving qualities that are thought to amplify when the cannabinoids work together. Meanwhile, CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Considering this, this high THC, moderate CBD strain may be somewhat useful for relieving pain and inflammation often experienced with joint pain, arthritis, headaches, and migraines.
Grow characteristics: As expected from an indica, Peppermint Kush will only reach a short height. The plant grows uniformly making it most suitable for Sea of Green and SCROG methods. Typically producing large, dense flowers, its heavy side branches are likely to require extra support. Meanwhile, its resistance to mold and disease mean it can perform very well outdoors. Peppermint Kush has a short flowering time of around 8 weeks.
