The Cowboy Kush strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid (60% Indica / 40% Sativa) made by crossing the popular Hell's Angel OG X Stardawg strains. This rare weed provides a happy, creative high that won't make you too energized. Instead, the Cowboy Kush cannabis bud is very relaxing in nature, promoting lifted overtones that are ideal for smoking either during or at the end of a stressful day. The Cowboy Kush weed has a sweet herbal pine aroma with a spicy chemical flavor due to dominant terpenes pulegone and limonene. This cannabis bud boasts a high THC level that amounts to 14,5 - 19.75%, making the Cowboy Kush suitable for veteran smokers.

Alongside THC, the Cowboy Kush strain also contains the following cannabinoids:

  • CBD 0.41 - 0.58%
  • CBC 0.26 - 0.47%
  • CBG 0.11 - 0.46%
  • CBN 0.25 - 0.36%
  • THCV 0.6 - 0.26%.

Taste and Smell

Due to a varied terpene composition that comes from genetics, the Cowboy Kush strain has complex flavor and smell. The weed has a spicy herbal aroma that is complemented by smooth pine hints, and chemical finish smokers can notice on the exhale. The aroma mainly comes from pulegone and myrcene. Due to limonene as a dominant terpene, the flavor of the Cowboy Kush cannabis also has lemon notes, but the main taste is very pungent and earthy, with flowery menthol overtones for the delicate aftertaste.

The terpene composition is also made up of:

  • Carene
  • Pinene
  • Humulene
  • Linalool
  • Caryophyllene.

Common Effects of Cowboy Kush

Since the Cowboy Kush strain is mainly Indica, the weed provides primarily relaxing properties. When smoking, you will feel a quick sense of happiness that slowly uplifts your mind, reduces stress and only within some time overtakes your brain and body. Smokers can notice increased energy and feel talkative and ready to go, but soon the total bliss of happy relaxation will start to wash them over in ebbing and flowing waves. Since the Cowboy Kush weed leaves you completely unwinded and pretty sleepy at times, this cannabis bud is recommended for nighttime use.

Cowboy Kush Strain Cannabinoids

THC 14.5 - 19.75% 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 0.41 - 0.58% 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 0.26 - 0.47% 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 0.11 - 0.46% 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 0.25 - 0.36% 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 0.26 - 0.6% 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.
