Terpene Chemistry and Flavors

What can smokers expect from a cannabis strain with a name like Kandy Kush? The top-related aromas you can detect when smelling dried flowers are sweet floral and citrus. These scents are brought by dominant terpenes – camphene and myrcene. As typical for its Kush genetics, the Kandy Kush weed strain also emanates an earthy odor since it is rich in caryophyllene. The cultivar tastes similarly, and its flavor is equally tempting.

Common Effects and Medicinal Benefits

The high provided by the strain creeps up on smokers with euphoric feelings that improve their mood and leave them relaxed and happy. As the high progresses, the euphoria is followed by sedation and even sleepiness. As heavy and lazy high spreads throughout the body, it soothes and reduces muscle tension. The Kandy Kush strain has proven effective in relieving symptoms of:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Mood disorders
  • Insomnia

Medicinally, the weed cultivar has lots to offer for patients suffering from eating disorders by stimulating their appetite.

The biggest concerns that low-tolerance stoners may experience are:

  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Dry eyes
  • Dizziness

Kandy Kush Strain Cultivation Tips

Home growers are recommended to have some experience in cannabis cultivation if they want to try their hand at Kandy Kush themselves. The plants take 55-69 days to fully mature and 74 days to harvest. They can become tall plants of up to 60-80 inches that provide decent yields, resulting in 1-2 oz./ft2 indoors and 15-20 oz./plant outdoors. The buds have popcorn-shaped nugs that give off a sweet lemon aroma. Multiple seed banks and shops offer the strain’s seeds for sale.
