Newbie Skilled

Sunshine Kush is an evenly balanced (50/50 - Sativa/Indica) hybrid cannabis strain originating from the crossbreed of OG Kush and Michigan Sunshine. It has a dominant limonene terpene alongside bisabolol, linalool, and myrcene. THC content varies between 15 and 18%, with CBD levels between 0.47 and 0.71%. Sunshine Kush’s euphoric mental high with a touch of couch lock makes it a good afternoon weed. Its potency works well for both recreational and medicinal use; however, the high can be a bit intense for new users.

Strain Effects

Sunshine Kush is a powerhouse marijuana strain that keeps the mind in a state of euphoric and focused creativity. The body high is gentle, with some anchoring, while the brain remains in a pleasantly aroused state. A strong focus and mental energy make this a fabulous weed for working on creative projects or sharing ideas.

The flavor is reminiscent of a citrus dessert, with sour lemon and sweet berry notes and a hint of spicy nuttiness on the exhale. The aroma matches this flavor with a floral and earthy undertone, overlaid with sweet and sour citrus.

It is also frequently used for pain, Alzheimer’s, and anxiety. The tendency for hunger while high also makes it ideal for anorexia and appetite loss.

There are a few possible side effects with the use of this strain, including the following:

  • Panic attacks
  • Dizziness
  • Thirst or dry mouth
  • Tingling
