Known properly as “Mendocino Kush,” this indica-dominant (60% indica / 40% sativa) hybrid is a newer favourite that comes fresh from the Mendocino County in Northern California. THC levels can reach up to 20% with this strain, giving a near perfect balance between euphoria and relaxation.
Mendo Kush gives off a delicate lemon-lime aroma, yet when smoked the citrus from this cannabis plant becomes a sharper but creamier earthy pine flavour. People have described it as full of caramel with a slight coffee taste that doesn’t overwhelm. The buds are unique and sharp, with a beautiful green and orange colour medley.
The buzz comes up within a few minutes of taking the first hit or two. Expect nothing but the giggles and good time to start with this strain, followed by a calming euphoria. This strain brings a pleasant body high as well, good for easing muscle pains especially in the neck and back, though it may also work well for tackling insomnia, restlessness, daily stress, low moods, or nausea. Mendo Kush is recommended for later evening or night time use, although it has its place during the day for those needing to just chill out or handle some arthritis without needing too much mental capacity or intense focus. Strong yet not overwhelming, Mendo Kush makes for a great choice overall.
Medical users will enjoy this strain for treating any aches or pains in the body, especially cramps and muscle spasms. Expect insomnia and stress to be vanquished when using Mendo Kush as well. Common side effects include the usual cottonmouth and red eyes.
