This strain is a blend of Indica-dominant and pure Sativa, which is not to be confused with Kandy Kush (same sound different spelling!) and is often used in the medical community as well as for recreational use. With new strains of Kush popping up everywhere, this is one strain that is certainly making an impact. For medical users and recreational users alike, the overwhelmingly positive effects of Candy Kush means that it is getting good reviews across the globe.

First of all, its ease of growth as it has a flowering time of just nine weeks, secondly it is very versatile as it grows both indoors and outdoors which purely on a practical level makes it a great strain to grow. Kandy Kush is also a very hardy and resistant auto flowering plant. The yield itself is very decent as well and averages around 250-500g per square meter. The added bonus of this strain is that it is incredibly mold and pest resistant so no need to stock up too heavily on deterrents. In terms of yield, this is one of the best strains for overall growth and ease of maintenance!
Candy Kush has a sweet fruity taste, with light berry notes and a floral scent, and with a low bud to stem ratio and a soft fluffy appearance it is easy to see where this strains name originated from.

This strain was actually created as a result of the demand for a cannabis strain that would produce a high without the lethargy associated with many strains.

Kandy Kush is very popular for its medicinal properties and is claimed by those who use it for this purpose to alleviate the symptoms of migraines, anxiety, stress ADD, ADHD and gastrointestinal disorders to name just a few. This strain is also claimed by many to help with Insomnia, and with such high THC and CBD levels, it’s no surprise!
Apart from the common side-effects associated with marijuana notably dry mouth and eyes, Kandy Kush can give you a serious case of the munchies, which, depending on your diet goals or lifestyle may be a good or bad thing! Overall, the tangible benefits of Kandy Kush make it a great strain for both beginners and seasoned veterans alike. As always, however, make sure to go at your own pace and tolerance level!
