This indica-dominant hybrid (60% indica/40% sativa) produces super-dense, round buds caked in orange pistils and layers of trichomes. There’s a strong diesel scent on this cannabis plant, with notes of evergreen and pine.
The smoke from Irene Kush tastes sour and rubbery, with traces of burnt wood.
Lab tests show it can reach as high as 22% THC. The high from this strain hits high and it hits fast, and it spreads between the mind and body equally. For patients with debilitating conditions or chronic pain, this is a good strain for remaining functional and clear while experiencing some numbness in the muscles. The buzz lasts a long time, too, so plan accordingly.
Side effects include red eyes and cottonmouth with Irene Kush.
