Kandy Kush Marijuana Strain

Sativa Dominant Hybrid

Kandy Kush won the very first Western Slope Cannabis Crown, held in Aspen, Colorado, in 2010. It was voted best medical cannabis out of 140 strains. The strain also won third prize in Outdoor Strains at Spannabis Cannabis Champions Cup in 2012. So, it’s one with some serious pedigree and credibility behind it.

Kandy Kush is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) originally produced by DNA Genetics. It was created by crossing two indica and sativa powerhouses; OG Kush and Trainwreck. According to the breeders, the aim was to combine the OG flavor with the beloved Trainwreck bud structure.

The OG Kush side of the strain brings a tasty, pronounced terpene profile along with therapeutic benefits. Meanwhile, the Trainwreck side brings lemony scents, high commercial yields, and resin production. The sweetness of the strain is courtesy of the OG Kush lineage, hence the name.

The THC levels average between 15-21%. The high is a creeper, taking several minutes for the full effects to kick in. It begins in the head as cerebral activity rises – uplifting the spirits and bringing negative thoughts to a halt. Soon after, the high moves to the body, relaxing tense muscles and leaning towards a couch-lock stone. This is why it should be used in moderation and/or at the end of the day.

For many users, the sativa effects of the Trainwreck influence in Kandy Kush can overpower the more sedative effects of the OG Kush parent. Generally, the effects are described as euphoric, uplifting, mood-enhancing, and relaxing. The sativa properties result in an initial onset of focus and increased energy levels.

Besides the generally happy mood, some users may also experience a sense of euphoria. So expect to have a blissful smile across your face – and definitely plenty of giggling. Novice users may even fall victim to Kandy Kush’s iconic effects because they are tempted to take a few more puffs just for the taste. But once the sedative-like properties hit the body, you may find yourself motionless and in a peaceful, mindless bliss.


The smell of Kandy Kush OG has been described as a combination of earthy, sweet, and pungent, which makes for an interesting smoke. It’s also characterized by its lemony, sweet, and fruity smell that will remind you of – surprise, surprise – sugar laden candy.


Kandy Kush has a sweet and fruity candy-like flavor that, well, does the name well! The taste is pleasant with just the right blend of a sweet berry candy aftertaste and a subtle hint of citrus. Some even describe the flavor as having spicy, pepper-like undertones amidst the sweetness.


The appearance of Kandy Kush can vary dramatically depending on the specific phenotype. The shape can range between being more circular-shaped (like OG Kush) to more oblong-shaped, like Trainwreck. That said, the buds are always dense, which is a characteristic of both the parent strains. Most phenotypes are small, thin plants with large and ridiculously sticky buds.

THC Content – Highest Test

Kandy Kush has an average THC level of 18%, but it has been found to reach as high as 21% in some phenotypes.

CBD Content – Highest Test

Like many other strains with high THC content levels, Kandy Kush contains only trace amounts (if any) CBD. The CBD content is measured at below 1%.


Kandy Kush is looked at by some users as the king of stress relievers. Although the THC content isn’t remarkably high when compared to some other strains, the calming effects make it a go-to choice for those battling anxiety and daily stress-related problems.

The strain also has pain-relieving properties, which makes it a great option for those suffering from chronic pain – whether it’s due to injury or internal ailments that cause discomfort. Kandy Kush can even be helpful in alleviating more “normal” discomfort, like period pains, thanks to its gentle numbing qualities.

The euphoria-inducing high of Kandy Kush may even work well for bouts of depression and the oft-associated anxiety. Remember that marijuana, in general, can be a useful tool in the fight against neglected ailments like anxiety and depression.

Although depression is considered to be a mental health disorder, it can often have a profound effect on the physical body as well. So while Kandy Kush won’t directly alleviate the physical manifestations of this condition, it may help mitigate them by getting rid of the causes – at least for some time.

Kandy Kush can also be helpful for insomnia and sleep trouble, which is why it’s often recommended as an evening-use strain. It provides a very relaxing smoke, which means it can help put your mind at ease and send you straight off into dreamland with relative ease.

Possible Side Effects

As with many other marijuana strains, the side effects of Kandy Kush are minimal, and the side effects it does produce are rarely anything to be concerned about. Headaches, anxiousness, and dizziness are possible, but unlikely.

    I normally have to take ibuprofen no matter what type of headache. I just had one and smoked KK… No more headache. I feel creative, which is extremely strange, and comfortable in public versus being paranoid. I’m 1/2 way thru a medium blunt now and am thinking of things to do… I’m ready to share this with my bf and see what his opinion is. ??

    Just tried Kandy Kush right now. It’s rightfully named because it tastes and smells slightly sweet. The smoke was pretty smooth and the high is fast acting. Very nice comfortable buzzing body high. I feel very euphoric, uplifted, and oddly enough, both slightly focused and sedated at the same time. This is a pretty unique high, but I am really enjoying it. I’m losing track of time quite easy right now. It makes your head feel pretty heavy, and you can feel the high in your face and behind your eyes. Oh and I forgot to mention, I feel very relaxed and anxious free. It’s making me a little tired so this is def more of a evening or night strain. This strain is awesome. I rate this a solid 4,5 stars.

  3. editor

    I thought it would be Kooler. Not a bad strain. How couldn’t she be with Trainwreck and OG Kush genetics? Known for her commercial growing capabilities and large yield. This pheno was not the tastiest nor the sexiest but medicated me just fine. A little harsh to be perfectly honest. The buzz is great, perfectly balanced hybrid with a stony feel.

  4. editor

    It suited my medical needs perfectly. I’m already pretty optimistic and energetic when there’s a project on the go and this solved my pain every time so I could sit down and work or study. Studying went smoothly, better than I’m used to. I think it took daydreaming and recurrent (& unnecessary) thoughts out of the picture, and I believe I have ADHD and PTSD from an accident. I had been nervous to leave the house and go into relevant neighbourhoods, but while using Kandy Kush I felt anxious only when there was a need to – like when crossing the street, not the whole walk to the crosswalk. I also noticed that my eczema and zit scars lightened up a lot, plus my gums tightened up around one tooth where the dental hygienist said my gums were flared away. I have never been able to treat those two things medically so I’m grateful to Kandy Kush.

  5. editor

    Kandy Kush will surprised you with it sweet pleasant smell. It is a potent stain. Indica dominant, this one is definitely a couch locker. It reliefs your body and your mind at the same time. Makes you wander in your thoughts and stare at the windows or walls for a long time! Kandy Kush made me kinda tired though (indica dominant) definitely a must cop, you won’t regret it 🙂

  6. editor

    Wow. Ran out of my chemdawg and wanted a good hybrid so I bought a quarter of this stuff a few days ago. We’ll it’s been an amazing few days. This stuff is very soft and spongy. VERY sticky, and moist it’s covered in crystals and hairs. The taste is probably on my top 3 best tasting strains out there, I love it. Its sweet and smooth smoke, even when i really milk my bong up and take huge rips its always smooth and tasty. The high is a good happy and stoned high, even though, it does seem a little short. Top shelf. Buy this and you won’t regret it.

  7. editor

    This is an excellent choice for evening meds. I used some good Sativa during the day. About two hours before bedtime I packed a bowl of Kandy Kush. It sent me into one of the most relaxed and soothing evenings I’ve had in a long while. When I was done watching a trippy episode of Cosmos (Could have been C-Span but how would I know?) I was treated to a night of relaxing sleep. I am indeed a fan of Kandy Kush.

  8. editor

    Great strain!! tastes really sweet and fruity. Heavy high, but doesn’t put you couch locked. Great for afternoon chilling, great to listen to music.

  9. editor

    Good strain, relaxing high and some kind of inner zen. creating some order in my AD(H)D mind and toughts, even in the morning. -in high dose it puts me asleep -in low dose it is mind clearing and body relaxing -moderate dose it’s perfect for relaxing social activities i would recommend this strain tot every kind of smoker.

  10. editor

    We’ll I’m smoking this right now and I feel like my nerves are like cold water running down my body on a really hot summer day and I feel like my eyes are bowling balls on bars of soap and I literally feel like sex … Like a man AND a women are having sex and I honorably get to be that feeling they get to experience .. And I feel like my brain is a cheat balloon you get from dollar general and it inflation inside my cranium . My legs are becoming sand bags … And this chair that I’m sitting in (recliner) And I’m sinking into it like I’m travailing in through time and im feeling joy for once .. My mind is slipping into some trans to where Danny phantom and tiger woods will be having and nba playoff in my back yard of burnt rubber basketball court of bill cosbys lips Ps. Holy shit Singed peter griffen

    Fantastic, sweet tasting like candy on the inhale, smooth on the exhale. Strong buzzy/energetic at first, slowly easing into a relaxing couch presence. Effects last a solid 3+ hours.

  12. editor

    I have a pretty high tolerance from medicating with high dosage edibles, so it’s hard to find weed to get super high from with a small amount. The budtender told me that this batch had tested 26% THC so I went ahead and got a couple grams. A few bong hits later I was pleasantly very very high and feeling relaxed and not a worry in the world. Definitely recommend for nighttime, however the couch lock isn’t overwhelming.

  13. editor

    I liked this one. when I got it I thought is was Kandy crush like the game. ended up playing it after I medicated and made me way better at it. maybe coincidence but I think this bud gives me super power!

  14. editor

    Wow this strain really blew me away. A few strong rips of this delicious bud and I was off to outer space. Really made me super happy and uncontrollable laughter, extremely euphoric but a couch lock at the same time. Very sedating if and great for pain and relaxation. Highly re comment this it sneaks up on you but a great strain altogether.

  15. editor

    Somewhat rough on the inhale through a chillum but WORTH IT. Nice mellow head high with creative peaks and a solid body with muscle relaxation as a feature. This strain makes it easy to lose time on a project or doing yoga, but be careful; you could space out watching shitty TV if you pack one bowl too many. Kandy Kush hits quickly but not all at once, so give it a second to settle in before you repack. A good evening smile for those with chronic pain; also good for longtime smokers in social smoking circles- this would make a great sharing, campfire strain.

    Retailer: Treehouse Club- Spokane Valley Maker: Firehouse Productions Total Cannaboids: 30.09% Wow! The smell is overpowering when opened. The immediate feeling was of a heavy indica. Tasted very earthy. Highly recommended!

  17. editor

    Love this kush! Smell sweet and taste even sweeter. The orange hairs and frosty outter nug is as nice as the purple you see when broken down. Great high but still able to function throughout my day.

  18. editor

    The high hit pretty quickly. Felt extremely happy and content with life. Made me trip pretty hard though but it was a great trip. The high peaked for about 2 hours before i started to come down. Felt lazy and a bit slow when coming down but the euphoria stayed for a while. This was one of the best highs i have ever had.

  19. editor

    First time smoking this strain, I did have initial coughs and roughness, but after a while it becomes smooth. It tastes like candy and then a sugary flavour in your mouth afterwards. I feel a nice euphoric feeling, especially a little stronger based on the music I listen to while high (chillstep). I have depression. It does help with it, well to me it does. I do feel relaxed, comfortable and happy. Noticeably it does give me a dry mouth, while giving me a little pressure and making me wanna eat, even though, I did eat before smoking more. It doesn’t seem to really last long, so I’m having to smoke another bowl. It doesn’t take longer for me to feel the effects from a sober mood. Smoking more bowls makes it come up faster though.

  20. editor

    Hits fast. I read other reviews that mentioned a tingly feeling, which I thought was weird until I felt my gums start to tingle. Relaxes me to sleep.

  21. editor

    This 1/8 was curing (forgotten) since 2013 believe it or not. Comparing to my old notes, it was more tasty and psychedelic when it was fresh. That may explain how it got lost or forgotten 😉 I had noted before that it was excellent for pain and a bit stimulating. It had been surprisingly good for $8gm so I had gone back for 1/4. I drove to the park with this “cured” stuff, vaped a packed bowl, and took a sunny spring walk. I paused or rested every once in a while and enjoyed looking at the water and the ducks, especially when they were splashing about in the light. I had enhanced spatial awareness of birdsong, buzzing insects, rustling, and echoes off leaves as I walked around the paths. Good, brightening effect which lasted 1.5 hours. Still heady, but mellowed with a bit more body. Pain relief was short lived, had some more at home at the 3 hour mark, and apparently, I want to write! Time to change books…

    This is my 2nd Favorite Strain, Godfather Kush is my First. This strain Is Cotton Mouth to the max & Also Long Lasting High & Great for Sleep@))

  23. editor

    Recently tried Kandy Kush and it is a great strain. Has a lemon like smell but tastes sweet like candy as the name suggests. Very enjoyable high making you feel good in general and is a prime stress reliever. Smoke is really smooth and dense. Nugs were a good size and looked super frosty, they also busted decently.

  24. editor

    Given as a gift from a friend to try — before smoking, the aroma is strong! Smells flowery to be sure. Quick kick — strong effects after first puff. Second puff = more of the same, solid effects and relaxation. While not necessarily my favorite taste, the results are indisputable.

  25. editor

    This is probably my favorite strain that I’ve tried so far. I have PTSD and severe depression w/ anxiety. I’m also very prone to serious mood swings but when I smoke this stuff I can feel like a normal person. I can only take 2 modest hits of this and I’ll be good for hours. My favorite thing about it is that it just makes me feel like I’m on autopilot. I was super baked last night and came home from a fun night and I didn’t even realize I was home until I got into bed lol. Maybe some people don’t like that sort of thing but I love it for my PTSD and anxiety, I can finally go about my day without having random panic attacks because of my trauma. I love it so much.

  26. editor

    By far my #1 favorite. It comes 2nd to NONE! I would make candle of the fragrance. The taste is probably its strongest attribute. So sweet, but not too sweet. Like all of your favorite fruits transformed into beautiful buds. The effects are just about perfect for heavy smokers, like myself. Heavy high without couch-locking you down. You still have energy & motivation to do standard tasks. Can get desired outcome without going overboard. Only, here’s where the flavor comes back into play…. You know you’re at the perfect spot, but it tastes so dang good that you’ll wanna smoke again. Like the desert of all strains. I could honestly smoke it all day, everyday.

  27. editor

    This is a great strain for quick bong rips and personal joints. With a refreshing citrus taste and sweetness that lingers. It is a easy smoke, fun active buzz and leaves ya eager for the next hit.

  28. editor

    Definitely great for unwinding, stress levels definitely dropped. Slept like a baby later on that night.

  29. editor

    Feels like the sun is shining on me, i feel very uplifted talkative at the same time. Writing this right now after taking two dabs i’m pretty damn functional and i’m even typing without looking.

  30. editor

    We’ll I’m smoking this right now and I feel like my nerves are like cold water running down my body on a really hot summer day and I feel like my eyes are bowling balls on bars of soap and I literally feel like sex … Like a man AND a women are having sex and I honorably get to be that feeling they get to experience ..

  31. editor

    Holy cow was a privilege to try out this strain. The buds were small, dense and very dry but, therefore it ground up to dust. Also easy to pick by hand and it reminded me of breaking up polystyrene. Now onto the smoke… Probably the smoothest that I have ever smoked. Was like a dream and to boot the exquisite candy floss flavour it brings is unbelievable! The after effects are also spot on, leaving you with a very long lasting mellow high. Easily a candidate for my top 5 maybe even top 3 of my all time favourites.

  32. editor

    I am almost a heavy stoner and last night after a one week break i bought this strain. In one word this strain is amazing. Its effects is like candy more than its taste. Smooth smoke and a nice high with no anxiety. I recommend everyone to try it.

  33. editor

    A very feel-good hybrid. Noticeably more relaxed yet still a heady buzz after consuming. Great for unwinding after a long day.

  34. editor

    This one is a great one… really helps with my mood and depression.

  35. editor

    Tastes super super good, one of the best tasting weeds I have come across. High is pretty average for a hybrid, this strain will just be a strain I would get on sale at the dispensary. Really solid strain though.

  36. editor

    Great evening or prebed strain. Very tingily. Nice sexual effects.

  37. editor

    This strain is my calm , mellow daytime medicine for those high tension days . Very Good Ménières symptom relief and good head feeling without that haziness towards the end . Smells and tastes really good and super frosty .

  38. editor

    I’m diagnosed with OCD, PTSD, and MDD and this is one of my favorites. I have zero nightmares with this strain, but do tend to wake up wanting more sleep (great for insomniacs). I attribute most of its awesomeness to its parent, Trainwreck..man is that one a gem! Long story short, Kandy is definitely worth a try.

  39. editor

    Lovely smoke. Picked this up from my trapper (UK smoker here), helps with my migraines and period pains.

  40. editor

    Great strain, very mellow high with a strong head change.

  41. editor

    Fruity and clean tasting similar to normal kush’s but more fruity good for any time of the day too tasted similar to skittles!

  42. editor

    Tastes super super good, one of the best tasting weeds I have come across. High is pretty average for a hybrid, this strain will just be a strain I would get on sale at the dispensary. Really solid strain though!

  43. editor

    Me and my friend smoked a joint of this each with the intentions of writing a review. We sat down at a park and it took us half an hour to write down, “it feels like we’re dumbo. Not like actually dumbo but in that world.” We walked to a Little Ceasers and bought crazy bread which tasted like a savoury donut, one of the best tasting things I’ve ever tasted. Then we walked around for a couple hours which felt like days and eventually made our way back home. One of the best nights of my life. One of my favourite strains, need to buy more whenever I can find it.

  44. editor

    Really good for monster PMS cramps. A small hit and 10 minutes later you no longer have pain and can get on with your day.

  45. editor

    The first ever strain of medical marijuana my caregiver gave me; when I signed up to have her as my caregiver. She gave me a bunch of samples and this is by far the best.

  46. editor

    I have the most anxious mind and unruly stomach but this makes it all go away. A nice nice nice head high. Stay hydrated while smoking the strain so the dry mouth/headache/dry eyes doesn’t happen.

  47. editor

    Shows sativa properties with indica high. Intense trichrome production. Fast response to light switch. Sweet scented.

  48. editor

    love this bud! it’s definitely one of my new fav’s. I just love the taste..the high is similar to to sour og, but the taste! omg so good! If you haven’t tried it & your dispensary has it, get a gram & see for yourself..If they grew it right, you’ll be back for more..I guarantee it

  49. editor

    Thick, dark wax. Excellent flavor, very mellow, relaxing high. Highly recommended for night tokin’.

  50. editor

    I tried Krazy Skunk which is Krazy kush plus skunk. It was an outdoor strain from CannaSol Farms in Okanogan, Wa. Pretty nice buds with a great high.

  51. editor

    Relaxing, Happy, Fuzzy High. Does not taste as sweet as it smells, but still has a strong flavor.

  52. editor

    The best smelling herb I’ve ever come across. Extremely potent. Full body high. Smoked this with some homies and after an hour everyone was asleep except me.

  53. editor

    Strong strain! Probably not the best idea to smoke a blunt with friends after coming off a tolerance break. But is wonderful if you’re feeling down. Took away all pain but keep eye drops handy bc it felt like the life was sucked out and I couldn’t get them moisturized enough. High lasted for a few hours.

  54. editor

    Swell’s Kandy Kush left us with a good peaceful uplifted high that made my buddy and I, hungry real fast =) our tolerance is kinda low since we just came back to smoking after a month break.

  55. editor

    Amazing. I got this hoping it would keep me mentally and emotionally grounded..I’m quitting Prozac Wellbutrin and Adderal. Anxiety is no joke but I don’t want to be on pharmaceuticals my whole life. Aside from all that The attributes of the flowers have great taste and smell. the smoke was enjoyable and didn’t make me cough. The high has been euphoric and relaxing. Wish me luck all hope everyone is well!
