Strawberry Kush is an Indica strain cultivated by Royal Dutch Genetics, but some consumers can come across an Indica-dominant version. Aside from having a peculiar smell, it comes with sense-stimulating effects, which are caused by a THC content of 16-19% with a CBD amount of 1.71-2.24%. It is a cross between sugary Strawberry Cough and bitter OG Kush; however, the strain parents can vary based on a marijuana provision center.

Smell and Taste

As the name suggests, the strain attracts consumers by a strong strawberry and fruity smell. While exhaling, users find an herbal and earthy aroma. The plant flavor is a mix of pine and citrus with skunky hints. People with a keen nose may also detect citrus undertones.

Particular plants of this strain may feature a different appearance since green leaves on buds have a reddish color that makes them look different. Due to amber trichomes, the flowers are appealing to the eye.

Common Effects of Strawberry Kush

Many people use this weed for recreational purposes, but it can also be employed for therapeutic appointments. The strain offers sedative and calming effects making users’ feelings relaxed. It gradually affects the nervous system and can be used by novice smokers.

The strain contains multiple terpenes: linalool, geraniol, bisabolol, camphene, and more. Medical patients use it to treat various mood, mental, personality, and physical conditions. It is effective in managing chronic stress, insomnia, arthritis, bipolar disorder, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, and depression. Also, it helps alleviate physical body ailments such as chronic pain, headaches, joint pain, cramps, etc.

As a rule, most consumers don’t face negative reactions. Some smokers can experience minor adverse effects that are manifested by dry mouth, dry eyes, hunger, tingling, or drowsiness. In rare cases, users can feel paranoid. These side effects are temporary and typical while using any type of marijuana.

Information for Growers

Those who are keen on growing their own Strawberry Kush, have to make sure that they have perfect cuttings to grow beautiful plants. The strain should be grown in a Mediterranean climate. The weed takes around 65-70 days to flower and is ready for harvesting (79-86 days). It is easy to grow and offers an indoor yield of 2-4 oz./ft2 and an outdoor yield of 4-6 oz./ft2. The plants produce a lot of resin, so breeders need to wear gloves and clean their tools regularly.

Recommendation for Use

The Indica version of Strawberry Kush provides calming body sensations. Most users tend to use it after dinner or on a Friday afternoon to clear their heads, but some smokers find that it helps with arousal. The strain is very popular among consumers due to its amazing fragrance and easygoing effects. It can be used by beginner smokers. It is also suitable for use in various edibles. In single cases, consumers can come across a hybrid in some dispensaries, and this strain type leads to the opposite, stimulating effects.

For smokers who wanna be happy and uplifting. But check the strain in a dispensary cause it may differ in the prevailing strain. With Sativa dominating, youll get the opposite effects. I prefer 50/50 hybrid.
