An Indica-dominant hybrid, Candy Kush is thought to originate from Blue Dream and OG Kush. It is potent and is one of the most popular strains nowadays. Its THC content is approximately 18%. Candy Kush tastes sweet and sugary, but the aroma is not overpowering. The smoke is smooth and has the same flavor, but undertones of haze and skunk can be noticed.

The high is a combination of euphoria and physical relaxation. It brings a slight energetic quality to the mix, resulting in a well-balanced bud that can be used at any time due to the blend of deep relaxation and uplifting effects. It is mostly used to relieve stress and pain. It also has a low CBD content that regulates the sedating effects, without leading to a couchlock.

This is a great strain for first-time users or experienced growers looking for a bud that’s easy to cultivate. The yield is satisfying and it is not pretentious whether it is grown indoors or outdoors.

Candy Kush Strain Cannabinoids

THC 15.75 - 19% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.92 - 1.08% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.45 - 1.15% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.16 - 1.75% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.04 - 0.2% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.37 - 1.21% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

Candy Kush Terpene Profile

Carene 0.09% Carene (also known as Delta-3 carene) is a terpene found in rosemary, lemons, pines, and cedars, offering citrusy and cypress aroma. Studies on mice showed that carene provides anti-inflammatory effects, as well as promotes bone health and chronic pain relief.
Pulegone 0.3% Pulegone is a less-common terpene found in peppermint and catnip, for example, with a sweet and minty aroma. In small amounts, pulegone could be found in some cannabis strains. It is reported to offer anxiety-relieving effects, increased cognitive performance, and sedative properties. Could remove dizziness.
Sabinene 0.06% Sabinene is a terpene with a peppery, spicy, citrusy, and piney aroma, presented in Norway spruce, Holm oak trees, black pepper, cardamom, and carrot seeds. Found in cannabis in small quantities. Allegedly, sabinene has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
Eucalyptol 0.3% Eucalyptol (also known as cineole) is usually found in eucalyptus, mint, sage, and tea tree oil. Distinguished for its cooling properties, eucalyptol constitutes only up 0.6% of a total terpene profile of a strain. This terpene exhibits potent antibacterial effects and can also be used to treat patients with Alzheimer's disease and asthma.
Phellandrene 0.24% Phellandrene (also known as alpha- and beta-phellandrene) is one of the rare terpenes found in cannabis with antihyperalgesic and antidepressive properties. Phellandrene contributes to a minty, woody, and mildly citrus aroma in cannabis. Previously confused with limonene and pinene, phellandrene was eventually distinguished as a separate terpene common for eucalyptus. Also, it could be found in mint, dill, black pepper, cinnamon, parsley, pine, and lavender.
Total terpenes content 0.99%

I was kind of expecting a cerebral high when I hit the first pull, I was surprised when it had me on couch lock mode with a body numbing high. The effects were quite strong and long-lasting
