Dance in a field of deep, dark juicy berries. Take in a deep breath and inhale the flavors around you. Let the smoke bring you into your happy place. Elderberry, or otherwise known as Elderberry Kush, is the flavorful bud that unknown breeders created by crossing Doja Berry and Edelweiss #3, two already popular strains that speak for themselves. This flavorful cross is slightly indica dominant, but you wouldn’t know if someone didn’t tell you as the effects are just that well balanced.
The THC levels have a high average of between 18% and 24%, giving users a perfectly strong buzz that even on its low end will still give you a kick in the pants. As you might expect, Elderberry is jam-packed with sweet flavors and aromas that lend themselves to its appropriately decided moniker. The fruitiness comes through on the nose and palate, with dark berry flavors and tart, earthy hints on both. The light green nugs are rich in deep purple hues, covered in purple and red hairs and are carpeted in amber shaded trichomes that give off a sticky sweet resin.
The buzz on this is not overly involved - buzzy, happy, sleepy, chill - but what it lacks in diversity it makes up for in strength. With inviting tingles, the high begins in the head and shoulders and rolls down over your core, warming you from the inside out. It is an utterly relaxing high that can best be described as well balanced and mellow. Enjoy as all of your worries get left behind and your body releases any tension you may be holding onto. Though you might feel energetic for a time in the beginning, motivation will be hard to maintain, so its best to just chill and let Elderberry do its magic.
Because of its sedative properties, this is an ideal bud for anyone suffering from extreme menstrual cramps, chronic pain, insomnia, and even muscle spasms. It will smooth out the more problematic symptoms and give you the relief you are desperate for. Anyone who suffers from fibromyalgia understands that relief is hard to come by, but try this strain out for the ease you need and see what it does for you. This strain is also good for depression, stress, mild anxiety, and bipolar as it is a mood booster and relaxant as well.
Elderberry is a moderate grow and can be harvested indoors or outdoors. The flowering time is between 7 and 8 weeks for indoor growth and late October for outdoor growth. This dark colored plant will produce a yield of around 14 to 18 ounces per square meter. The smell is quite delicious, ranging from earthy kush to sweet, sugary berries, so if you’re thinking of trying this plant indoors you can expect a pleasant experience.
This fruit-forward strain has all the hallmarks of a great pain reliever, chill booster, and all around buzzy, giddy bud. If you sometimes battle with the munchies and have a tendency to lean towards a silly high, this bud will have you with your hands in the cookie jar for sure.
