8 Ball Kush
About 8 Ball Kush
As a descendant of Afghani Landrace and a child of the Hindu Kush region, certain things are expected of this strain. Lucky enough, they live up to expectation and exceed one’s desire. This upbeat plant by Barney’s Farm offers earthy aromas, spicy flavors, and a surprisingly cerebral high that invigorates even the most weathered smokers. 8 Ball Kush is simply a thing of beauty.
This 100% indica strain boasts a high 5% CBD and relatively low levels of THC ranging from an average of 8% to 17% with spikes up to 18% being considered normal. These dense nugs are forest green and spade-shaped with rich amber trichomes and light golden undertones. Users love the brightly spiced and earthy flavors, as well as the dank, bittersweet aroma accented with sage and pepper.
8 Ball Kush is a delicate high that is best described as mellow and blissful. The euphoric rush hits almost immediately and is uncharacteristically cerebral for an indica. This phase stimulates the creative energy and happy flightiness of the high and will have you feeling excited and happy. The body high sets in a few minutes later and is utterly relaxing, bordering therapeutic. Thankfully, users can enjoy this sedative state without the unwanted side effect of lost functionality.
Medical patients love this strain for its light high that doesn’t weigh you down. Because of this, it’s great for those with full schedules who need relief, but can’t afford to slow down too much. These soothing and sedative properties make it a top choice for chronic pain due to injury or illness, inflammation, or muscle spasms. 8 Ball Kush offers a surge in energy and an uptick in mood which is useful for cases of mild depression and mild to moderate stress.
This plant is incredibly resilient and leans resistant to most ailments that plants suffer such as mold, rodents, and other pests, making it good for intermediate to advanced growers. It thrives in indoor or outdoor growing situations and has a flowering time of 7 to 9 weeks or in late September if cultivated outside. The buds are ready when the sweet, sticky resin is visible to the naked eye.
If you are a newer user and want to try out a kush that has airy effects that will both uplift your spirit and relax your body, this is definitely a strain for you. Good for use at any time of day, enjoy this spicy bud with a mango or lemon blunt wrap for an extra burst of flavor.
