About this Hybrid Strain

Papaya Kush is an evenly balanced hybrid strain that produces large, arrowhead-shaped buds that are filled with wispy burnt orange pistils. Its edges are covered in a coating of crystal trichomes, and its light scent has been compared with fruity gum or candy.

However, its taste is what gives this strain its name. It’s been described as tasting a bit like citrus and papaya with sweet undertones.

This strain has been defined as moderately strong by consumers, as its THC levels on average reach heights that are higher than normal. Effects have been reported by reviewers as chill and relaxing while curbing the pains of inflammation and even menstrual cramps. Some have said they’ve experienced an increase in energy and have used it through the day to keep fatigue at bay. Parent strains of Papaya Kush are currently unknown.
