Pure Kush Strain
Pure Kush is a phenotype of OG Kush, an indica-dominant strain with potent effects. This strain will leave you kicked back and watching Netflix, making it great for late nights or cozy days inside.
Pure Kush’s flowers tend to be on the smaller side, clinging together in tapered, conical shapes like mini pinecones. These nuggets have a dense, indica-typical structure, with their leaves coiled tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves tend to be a dark shade of olive green and are twisted through with curly yellow and orange pistils. Finally, a dusting of resinous trichomes gives Pure Kush’s flowers a silvery sheen and a very sticky texture.
An initial whiff of Pure Kush will pick up on a dank, earthy aroma, with notes of wet soil and some pine. On closer inspection, there’s some acrid skunky funk as well. Meanwhile, grinding up these compact buds reveals the strain’s Afghani roots through notes of hash and spice. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Pure Kush burns with a harsh, thick smoke that can tickle the palate and make eyes water. This smoke tastes musky and peppery on the exhale. Those toking in public should keep in mind that Pure Kush can be a very pungent smoke; some odor-control precautions may be necessary.
This slow-moving strain can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its even temper may provide some temporary relief from the difficult symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. It can also soothe pain, whether it’s temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like lupus or arthritis. Minor irritations like headaches and indigestion are quickly dispatched as well. As noted, Pure Kush can even counteract insomnia in high enough doses. Because its mindset is unlikely to trigger recursive, paranoid patterns of thought, the strain is a good choice for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
