CBD Kush – Indica
Along with THC, CBD is one of the miracle components of cannabis. Short for cannabidiol, CBD provides all the physical relaxation of a potent Indica, but with less of the psychedelic high that comes with higher concentrations of THC. CBD Kush is a cross between an unspecified, CBD-rich strain and the citrusy Kandy Kush. CBD Kush has between 1% to 8% THC and as much as 7% to 11% CBD.
CBD Kush impresses with large bud that are almost spherical in shape. The chunky flowers adhere in an indica-typical bud structure, with leaves coiled tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a bright shade of emerald green and are twisted through with rust-colored pistils. Because it’s genetically geared for low amounts of THC, this strain has a low volume of resin; any trichomes that are present are amber-colored, giving the flowers a slightly yellow sheen.
When properly cured, CBD Kush has an aroma that is simultaneously sweet and dank, like overripe fruit. On closer inspection, the woodsy scent of pine hangs underneath.
When burnt in a pipe or a joint, CBD Kush gives off a harsh and acrid smoke that may smell unpleasant for many, agitating the palate and causing eyes to water. Anyone intent on enjoying this bud in public should note that it can be a particularly pungent and indiscreet smoke.
