About Katsu Kush
When you’re ready to have a mellow night or need a little bit of a calming effect during the day, Katsu Kush should be your go-to bud. Breeders remain a mystery here, but most are pretty sure that she stems from Hindu Kush genetics. Bringing a 1:1 THC:CBD ratio to one’s life, this strain is ideal for medical users.
Katsu Kush isn’t overly strong, as her potency tops out at 11% THC, but more often than not users aren’t picking her for her psychedelic effects. These powerful nugs are often a dark green color with deep amber pistils and thick but small white trichomes. A very savory smell and flavor will overtake your senses as earth and pine mingle together with just a hint of sweetness to make her more palatable.
If you’re signing up for a blast off type of high, Katsu Kush will surely disappoint you, as this experience starts off slowly and stays mellow throughout. Users will initially notice a buzzing that spreads throughout the entire body and brings on wave after wave of relaxation. You’ll reach new heights of bliss as this strain overtakes you, and while you’ll certainly feel as if all is right in the world, you won’t be sacrificing too much energy or productivity. Depending on how much you smoke, Katsu Kush could easily lead to a peaceful night of sleep.
With CBD levels that regularly reach 10% it’s no surprise that Katsu Kush is a favorite among medical users. A host of conditions can be addressed with ease, including eye pressure, spasticity, chronic pain, stress, and depression, and quite honestly that’s just the tip of the iceberg. While this strain can theoretically be used at any point during the day or night to provide long-lasting relief, it’s recommended that you experiment with her a bit first to see how you react.
Given that she comes from landrace genetics, it’s not a shock that Katsu Kush is a very hearty plant in home growing environments. She ends up being a rather short plant and while she doesn’t require much in the way of topping, pruning is a must. Unfortunately, getting your hands on seeds is nearly impossible, but if you do, give her about 7 to 9 weeks to fully mature. Yields are decent but not exactly anything to write home about.
Great for newer users who want to ease themselves into higher levels of THC or ideal for medical ailments that just have to be soothed, Katsu Kush is an all-around great strain. Try her on a day when you don’t have much going on just to make sure she’s not too sedating for your liking, and make her a part of your evening routine after a long day at work.
