Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica / 30% Sativa
THC: 17% – 23%
Cherry Kush, also known as Cherry Pie, is an indica-dominant hybrid strain with a sativa/indica ratio of 30:70. That makes for a body high ideal for late nights and insomnia. With THC levels reaching 20%, this is a potent strain with strong medical effects. It’s best for treating sleep disorders, migraines, minor body pains, and chronic stress. It’s also effective at treating nausea and lack of appetite. CBD levels are much lower, about 0.5%, so this strain isn’t recommended for seizure disorders or other conditions that respond to CBD. Cherry Kush is a descendant of OG Kush and a Purple Afghani, both indicas. It’s used to treat anxiety, insomnia, and nausea, as well as lack of appetite and chronic pain. The Cherry Kush high is body-focused, with strong couch-lock and deep relaxation. It’s strongly euphoric and induces sleep. Side effects include dry mouth, dry eyes, and strong hunger. The buds are bright green and frosted with a dense layer of trichomes. This strain has a sweet, pungent flavor with hints of berry. Cherry Kush is widely popular across the United States, though it’s easiest to find in legal markets on the West Coast.
