Kandy Kush Marijuana Strain
Sativa Dominant Hybrid
While Kandy Kush might have been inspired by the popular game, it is sure to leave you breathless and exploring new highs.
This strain is an even blend of Sativa and Indica, giving it mild psychoactive effects at the end of a long day or night. It tastes similar to sweet citrus with a slight skunky taste, which makes it perfect for relaxation.
Northwestern Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Remedies took home the first-ever Western Slope Cannabis Crown in Aspen, CO by growing a Kandy Kush version that tests as THC 15–21%. A 50/50 hybrid most often associated with Indica dominance, this stress-reliever and appetite-booster is one of North America’s best loved strains.
About Kandy Kush Strain
Kandy Kush is a blend of OG Kush (Indica) and the more well-known Trainwreck strain (Sativa). Rocky Mountain Remedies, the first legal dispensary in Northwestern Colorado successfully won The Western Slope Cannabis Crown with Kandy Kush.
Kandy Kush offers both strong cerebral effects that lift moods and induce the “munchies” as well as a heavy, lazy body high. This strain is typically used to treat eating disorders and nausea by stimulating appetite in users.
DNA Genetics perfected their own cup winning strain called Kandy Kush by crossing two strictly indica and sativa strains; OG Kush and Trainwreck. Their aim was to combine the flavor of OG with the structure that Trainwreck is known for.
Both branches of the strain, OG Kush and Trainwreck have their own sweet, lemony scents. One branch brings great commercial yields while also producing resin; this is where these two strains get their sweetness from. The average THC levels range between 15-21%. The high is a creeper, as it takes several minutes for the full effect to kick in. It begins in the head and causes cerebral activity, which lifts spirits and brings negative thoughts to halt. Shortly after, the high moves to the body and eases tense muscles while leaving you feeling sedative. It is best to use this at the end of the day and/or in moderation.
The effects of Kandy Kush are described as generally starting with strong feelings of focus and increased energy levels. The sativa properties may result in an initial emotional focus without a sedative effect.
Novices may even find themselves under the influence of Kandy Kush’s effects because they are tempted to take a few more puffs just for enjoyment. However, once you feel the sedative-like properties hit your body, you’ll probably want to curl up in a comfy spot and forget all about anything else happening around you.
Kandy Kush Effects
People use various techniques to create distractions when they’re struggling with stress and anxiety. Even when you do something else to try and distract yourself, your mind still gets distracted and your body remains tense.
For those who have a low tolerance, one puff is enough to feel a calming sensation creep into the head pretty quickly. Otherwise, it can become overwhelming, putting users in a couch-lock.
If you are seeking to relieve stress, Kandy Kush is one of the most potent medical cannabis. When you enter the meditation room, your thoughts start to calm and your spirit relaxes.
In moderation, and at the end of a long day when you are ready to relax, cannabis can reduce tension in your body which is why it is often used.
Next, prepare to feel either very happy or extremely relaxed. You may also feel like you are giggling a little bit. Each time you take a puff, the sedative-like quality begins to take effect on your body. In rapid succession, more puffs come and before you know it, you’re totally unmoving or in a mindless bliss.
Kandy Kush may help those who experience difficulty eating enough. However, if eating less is due to other adverse effects of Kandy Kush then people should use caution when taking it.
Kandy Kush is characterized by euphoria that produces a happy, relaxed feeling. This feeling often leans heavily towards the Indica side of the spectrum and has been described as both chill and engaging. It can cause heavy body highs that may result in couch-lock.
Kandy Kush is a night strain since it affects most people by producing dopamine that results in intense cerebral effects followed by a heavy, time-stopping body high. Kandy Kush’s positives last for 2 to 2.5 hours which makes it the perfect late evening smoke.
Kandy Kush Fragrance
The reason why is that it has a sweet fruity smell similar to candy, which is why Kandy Kush also goes by the name “Candy Kush.” The strong aroma of Kandy Kush contributes to its popularity among medical cannabis users.
Kandy Kush Flavors
Kandy Kush has an enticing blend of tastes, consisting of a sweet berry candy aftertaste with a hint of citrus. If you enjoy playing Candy Crush and do so frequently, Kandy Kush is for you as not only can you smell it, but also taste the cannabis.
Kandy Kush Appearance
Although the appearance of Kandy Kush can vary, their parent (a hybrid) is commonly recognized as having a indica dominant structure. The shape of the bud can range between more circular-shaped (like OG Kush) to more oblong-shaped, like Trainwreck. The dense and sticky nature of the buds is a characteristic for both parent strains. Most phenotypes are small plants with large buds.
Kandy Kush Medical Use
- The average THC level of Kandy Kush is 18%, but it can reach as high as 21% in some phenotypes.
- Like most strains that have high THC content levels, Kandy Kush contains only trace amounts (if any) CBD. The CBD content is reportedly below 1%.
Additionally, some users call Kandy Kush the king of stress relievers due to its calmative effects. Despite not having a comparatively high THC content with other strains, the calming nature makes it a popular choice for those coping with anxiety and daily stressors.
Kandy Kush relieves pain that is caused by injuries or internal ailments, making it a great option for those suffering from chronic pain. It even has numbing properties to relieve more common forms of discomfort like period pains.
Kandy Kush can work well in treating depression and anxiety, which are often associated with one another. Although marijuana can be useful in treating anxiety and depression, it is important to remember that marijuana should only be used for medicinal purposes.
Although known to negatively affect mental health, depression can also have a negative impact on one’s physical well-being. Kandy Kush does nothing to directly cure cancer. It may help improve the physical symptoms by relieving the root cause, at least temporarily.
It is especially helpful for insomnia and other sleep difficulties, which contributes to it being recommended as an evening-time strain. The relaxing smoke is useful for putting your mind at ease so you can slip into dreamland quickly.
This strain may be an effective answer for those patients looking to address a variety of medical symptoms.
- The herb, oregano, is useful for anorexia, nausea, and lack of appetite.

- International travel can be a daunting task, especially for parents traveling with kids.
