Apex or Apex Kush is obsessively high in Indica genetics (90/10) and powerfully sedative. Despite this fact, the effects at first seem more Sativa-esque, making you feel warm and tingly in the face and free of pain. Its terpene profile creates a mix of unique flavors that include the taste of candied lilac and grapefruit. Its effects range from relaxing muscle tremors to reducing inflammation. The combination of physical and mental effects, plus a huge spike of hunger, will help you get to the Apex of your weekend relaxation.
The Apex strain grows in huge, fat nugs shaped like popcorn puffs and colored like light green mint. The hairs are thick and dark amber, almost red, and peek out among chunky white trichomes. They’re fluffy and oversized, producing an aroma of spice, coffee, and chocolate as you pull them apart and begin lighting up. The strain is beautiful in the ground but a low-yield plant, so it’s not exactly ideal for growers that prioritize sellable crops for a large number of clients.
303 Seeds bred this strain from parents originating in Uzbekistan and Afghanistan (though they sell it in Colorado), including Triangle Kush, Pure Kush, and Uzbekistan HP. Its THC levels sit around 16.5% on average, but that doesn’t prevent Apex from wielding ultra-potent, tingling euphoria against your work-week stress and loss of appetite.
This strain’s effects begin with a tingling feeling, starting behind your eyes in your brain and spreading its tendrils gradually across your body, leaving you feeling relaxed, euphoric, and “buzzed.” We recommend Apex for evening use since sedation and sleepiness follow closely on the heels of your buzz, ending in a huge swing of ravenous hunger that will leave you eating everything in sight before conking out.
For these effects, users of Apex are often those who have chronic pain issues. This can include conditions that cause inflammation, chronic muscle spasms/tremors, or conditions that result from those things. Either way, Apex can reduce symptoms while reducing stress. And of course, those who suffer from a loss of appetite, medication-related or otherwise, can use Apex purely as a way to get their juices flowing, preventing nausea along the way. Therefore, even users with eating disorders can benefit from this strain.
These effects are matched by the strain’s taste, which is a cocktail of delicious flavors ranging from woody tones with hints of pine to candied lavender, mango, and pineapple. These flavors, as well as the undercurrents of spice and herbs, come from its dominant terpenes – Myrcene, Geraniol, and Humulene – and contribute to Apex being a newfound favorite for sufferers of various conditions. Whether that condition is MS, ADHD, or just trouble working up an appetite, Apex can help.
