CBD Kush Genetics
Created through a collaboration between the CBD Cew and the inventive Dutch Passion Seeds, CBD Kush is a strain crossed with Kandy Kush and an unspecified CBD-rich strain. It was specifically bred to yield a 1:1 balance between THC and CBD effects, with less of the psychedelic high that comes with high THC concentrations.
CBD Kush Effects
Because it’s high in CBD, effects are mild and serve to be intensely relaxing, rather than a traditional high. Users will feel a sense of fluidity from the body high that reduces muscle tension, and although this strain isn’t a couch-locker, it can help set the stage for a good night’s rest.
CBD Kush Terpene Profile
It has a spicy, herbal taste that hangs around with an aroma that’s very much the same — earthy and dank, with a sweet finish and pinewood undertones. Users wanting to enjoy this in public should note that it produces an indiscreet, harsh and acrid smoke.
Medical Benefits CBD Kush
CBD strains, particularly with a 1:1 THC/CBD ratio, are thought to have a broad range of medicinal uses including helping with pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, and seizures associated with some forms of epilepsy. Strains with a balanced cannabinoid content have also been indicated to have calming effects that could help with nausea, gastrointestinal disorder, fibromyalgia, and muscle spasms. While not definitive, some research has also suggested that strains with a balanced THC and CBD ratio may help improve the restlessness, hyperactivity and inattentiveness associated with ADD/ADHD.
How to Grow CBD Kush
This strain typically grows short and bushy, so it’s important to periodically trim any leaves hindering sun and oxygen from reaching low-growing flowering nodes. This strain is geared for low THC concentrations, consequently causing low resin production. Nonetheless, the large buds produced towards the end of its growing phase are impressive, featuring amber-colored trichomes with emerald leaves and yellow flowers that adhere in to indica-typical bud structure.
