Pure Kush is an indica-dominant strain that belongs in every MMJ patient’s medical kit. It is extremely potent, often measuring up to 22% THC content, and is considered one of the strongest strains of medical marijuana available. This strain is not to be taken lightly, as its intense sedative effects can knock out even the most experienced of smokers. But used responsibly, it’s masterful at alleviating the suffering of chronic aches and pains.
ABOUT THE STRAIN
Pure Kush strain is a powerful phenotype of the famous OG Kush. Though ubiquitous, the origins of OGK are somewhat of a mystery. It’s believed that OGK is a descendant of Pakistani Chitral Kush. This strain was developed via a natural landrace in a Pakistani town known for making some of the best hash in the Middle East. This strain found it’s way to Florida, where it was possibly bred with Chemdawg, and found its way to California where it exploded onto the scene in 1995.
The buds are olive green, dense, and shaped like pinecones, with bright orange pistils and lots of sticky trichomes. The aroma is extremely pungent with pine forest oak and earth tones.
HOW’S THE SMOKE?
Flowers burn with a harsh, thick smoke that can be overwhelming for new smokers. Novices to cannabis may prefer concentrates for this reason. The smoke tastes oaky and skunky with strong tones of spice.
PURE KUSH EFFECTS
The high creeps up slowly, then hits hard and fast. Most Pure Kush reviews describe these effects:
- Warm, gentle pressure around the face
- Sensory distortion
- Amplification of lights and sounds
- Time slows down
- Wandering euphoric thoughts
- Increased appetite
- Extreme sedation
- Pain relief
Those who suffer from anxiety or insomnia will enjoy the calming, sedative effects as Pure Kush isn’t known for causing racing thoughts or paranoia. Its body high is extremely effective for relieving pain, aches, cramps, muscle spasms, and headaches.
Be warned: Pure Kush is a powerful sedative and isn’t ideal for those who have work to do (unless your job is to binge-watch Netflix and giggle.)
