Caramel Kona Coffee Kush
About Caramel Kona Coffee Kush
Caramel Kona Coffee Kush is an Indica-dominant strain (70/30) that you need to be careful not to confuse with Coffee Kush, which is a White Hash Plant x Pre-98 Bubba Kush cross. This strain by contrast is recognizable by its Kona Gold and Caramel Kush genetics, which impart a comparatively sweeter flavor and a host of different effects. With a mid-high THC average in the high teens, the strain packs a punch for just about anyone looking for a classic cerebral stony feeling. It’s couch-locking, sleep-inducing, and mouth-watering. And it tastes like coffee, so how could you go wrong?
The breeder of Caramel Kona Coffee Kush has a name that’s no less a mouthful: Pua Mana 1st Hawaiian Pakalōlō Seed Bank. “Pakalōlō” is a word combo of two Hawaiian words, “paka” and “lolo.” This means that the finished word translates roughly to “crazy tobacco.” This seedbank down in Hawaii is big on the coffee strains, especially when bred from cuts of GSC and Kona Gold. Another similar favorite of theirs is called Caramel Kona Coffee Cookie, which is actually a child strain derived from Caramel Kona Coffee Kush. Both strains relish a heady buzz and a spicy-sweet flavor that recalls the sweet aroma of caramel and coffee. Just remember that Kona Gold is in there too, bringing a spicy, herbal exhale. Some lingering flavors include menthol, pine, and tea, owing to the strain’s abundance of Caryophyllene, Pinene, and Myrcene.
Caramel Kona Coffee Kush’s appearance favors small, fluffy buds that are round and green, packed in like olives among bright orange pistils. The crystal trichomes are light tan and tiny, like flecks of sand. The harvest time for the strain is prolonged, up to 93 days after a flowering period of 68-87. A grower’s reward for sticking it out with Caramel Kona Coffee Kush, other than the aroma of earthen coffee, is a yield of 400g/sq. m. inside and 550g per plant outside, on average.
Once the strain takes hold, users report feeling giggly and energetic at first. It’s not rare for this strain to get everyone talking and laughing, tingling like schoolkids, bouncing around. It’s a great strain for hanging out, laughing, and playing. But after a while, CKCK starts to weigh heavily, as the caramel spice settles and the classic stony high begins to take hold. You’ll be locked to your couch, sleepy and immovable. Life becomes a blur on this strain, as do stressful feelings, muscle cramps, and depression symptoms. So long as you don’t need to be motivated to do anything, Caramel Kona Coffee Kush is a new way to bring a Hawaiian vacation straight to your coffee-addict brain.
