Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica / 30% Sativa THC: 17% – 22%, CBD: 1%
Also known as Cotton Candy Kush, this strain is an indica-dominant hybrid, though the exact ratio of sativa to indica isn’t widely known. Cotton Candy is a complex mix of Power Plant from South Africa and Lavender from Amsterdam, itself a blend of Skunk strains and an Afghani Hawaiian. THC levels are relatively high, topping 22% in some samples, while CBD is much less prominent. That chemical makes up less than 1% of this strain, meaning Cotton Candy shouldn’t be used as the sole treatment for conditions that respond to CBD, including seizure disorders. Expect a calming body high from this strain, along with cerebral effects, euphoria, and a boost of happiness. It’s a good choice for patients who suffer from anxiety, migraines and other headaches, chronic pain, and everyday stress. Not surprisingly, the smell and flavor are reminiscent of cotton candy, with sweet, fruity notes and hints of other kinds of candy. Cotton Candy produces the usual side effects: dry mouth and dry eyes, as well as paranoia and dizziness. It sells best on the West Coast, in Arizona, in Colorado, and British Columbia.
