LA Kush strain is the child of OG Kush. The second parent, however, remains a mystery. However, there is some speculation that it could be Abusive OG. Despite the high levels of THC, marijuana can still be accessible to beginners if handled with care. LA Kush is a 70/30 Indica-dominant hybrid. Cannabis is a mix of classic and out-of-the-box flavors. Thus, caryophyllene gives marijuana a sharp menthol smell, and myrcene is responsible for the spicy scent of herbs. And phellandrene, in turn, makes the user smell the forest and pines.

LA Kush Strain Effects

The prominent cannabinoid is THC, which makes up 19-21 percent of the content. However, there is also CBD, but its performance does not even reach 1%. From the very first breath, you will be overwhelmed with cheerfulness. Everything you need to be productive is here:

  • Motivation
  • Energy
  • Creativity
  • Concentration

Tokers also reported throbbing in the body, which soon changed from alertness to calmness. As this happens, the body feels pleasantly tired, while the user remains happy. We recommend taking the LA Kush strain in the afternoon because, despite the energy boost, the high's end makes the consumer sleepy. However, evening taking is not recommended because possible feelings of paranoia and heart palpitations can cause insomnia. Plus, like any indica-dominant strain, the kush induces intense hunger and thirst. So be sure to stock up on food and drinks in advance.
