Cherry Kush Strain
- Dry Eyes
- Dry Mouth
If you’re a new cannabis user or have just returned from a recent vacation to the right coast, Cherry Kush is one of the most popular strains outside of Northern California. This strain is a hybrid of Cherry Pie (a cross of Purple Afghani and OG Kush) and has become a favorite for those in the San Francisco Bay Area. Often colloquially called “Cherry Pie,” these flowers range from bright, vivid green to rich purple-tinged red and sport a dense coating of trichomes.
The effects of this strain start as stimulating and cerebral before fading into a deep feeling of relaxation and euphoria. This strain is highly recommended for patients suffering from pain, insomnia, and anxiety, as well as many other ailments. On the other hand, it has been known to cause dry eyes or mouth and headaches for some users.
The THC level is usually around 18%, while CBD levels are typically below 1%. The flavor of this strain has been described as sweet and fruity with a woody, hashy undertone, although some users have reported cherry or earthy flavors. Cherry Kush is typically green with a purple tinge, sporting a dense coating of trichomes.
Growing this strain indoors is quite easy. It typically takes a flowering time of 9-10 weeks for indoor plants to produce their maximum yields, and the plants can be topped and manicured as needed. It can also grow this hybrid outdoors. However, you should be mindful that this strain prefers a warmer environment than typical daytime highs above 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
