If you are a Kush fan and desire a heavy bodied and dreamy high, then Peppermint Kush is an excellent choice. This strain primarily grows short and wide, producing excessively large side-branches that need support when flowering. Peppermint Kush is highly resistant to cold and challenging weather, performing well outdoors.
Heritage & Genetics: Stella Blue originated in Amsterdam and was known in coffeeshops for the unique blueberry profile with mint overtones. Barney’s Farm crossed the Stella Blue with a knockout, sturdy Nepali Kush, resulting in a very aromatic musky plant dubbed Peppermint Kush that certainly delivers on yield.
Flavor & Aroma: As the name suggests, Peppermint Kush has a robustly earthy, spicy aroma, which is mellowed out by a minty and berry undertone. Peppermint Kush might not have the vintage lemon kick as many other Kush strains have but the earthy, minty flavors are unique for a Kush strain.
Effect: The potent hybrid of two great indica plants, Peppermint Kush’s average of 22% THC ensures strong effects. This strain is likely to make you feel very laid-back whilst enjoying the immense cerebral high that arises in no-time. After several tokes, you will be fully immersed in a state of the deepest relaxation.
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.
