A hybrid with a bit more indica in it than sativa, Super Kush grows flowers that like folding in on themselves with a spectrum of greens, purples, and blues. When broken, the nugs smell faintly of spearmint and dirty skunk, and when smoked this cannabis plant tastes of pungent charred wood.
Lab data suggests its average cannabinoid levels hover between 15-22% THC.
This plant offers a nice balance between the uplifting effects of a sativa and the chillax offered by an indica. It can elevate mood while instilling a sense of calm, not too wired and not too sleepy – it’s like Goldilocks with being just right. Super Kush is recommended for treating pain, nausea, low moods, mood swings, or stimulating appetite.
Common side effects from Super Kush include cottonmouth and red eyes. Some users may experience light headedness or anxiety with high doses.
