Anything with “kandy” in its name has to be good, right? Right! The Kandy Kush strain is no exception. This sweet-flavored hybrid produces a distinct lemon scent—very “Kushy”, as one user put it—when smoked and, since first being produced, has become a popular medicinal strain because of its potent high and strong pain-relief quality.
But the sweetness isn’t only restricted to its name or its smoke—sometimes the bud even looks like candy. The oranges, greens, browns, and purples combine to give this strain a decidedly rock-candy-like appearance. Just imagine this bud on a stick, ready to be licked, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Kandy Kush has a lot to offer (and a lot to be desired), so let’s spend a bit of time getting to know the sweetest of the sweet.
History Of The Strain
Kandy Kush is a hybrid strain originally produced by DNA Genetics and created by crossing two indica and sativa powerhouses: OG Kush and Trainwreck. It’s original, and most common, form is predominantly indica-dominant (about 60%) thanks to its OG Kush parent. Other forms that pop up now and again, hold more of a likeness for the Trainwreck side of the family and display decidedly sativa structure and characteristics. That said, the indica-dominant strain of Kandy Kush is by far the most common and is what people are jonesing for when they need to satisfy their sweet tooth. Newer strains introduce even more of a candy vibe with flavors like cotton candy, rock candy, caramel candy.
