DESCRIPTION: Dinafem Seeds specifically selected this strain out of their cultivation line-up because she showed so much promise, and with a cross between Big Skunk and OG Kush, we can see why. Although she’s a well-balanced 50/50 hybrid, Big Kush has a tendency to impart a strong set of indica effects, making this bud ideal for nights at home when you want to get away from it all.
Novice users take note – this strain hits hard at her average 20% THC level. Looking at the nugs alone nearly tells you as much with a fluffy mint green exterior that features dark hairs and very bright white trichomes. True to the Kush family lineage, Big Kush’s flavors lean toward a strong lemon and diesel combination, with flavors that are more herbal in nature. The same sour lemon still peeks through but is overshadowed by spices.
True to a balanced hybrid, the high you’ll experience with Big Kush is interesting, to say the least. Initially, you’ll enjoy a huge wave of euphoric energy that leads you to believe any task can be accomplished with ease. While that might be true for a short period of time, you’ll eventually succumb to a sense of sleepiness that you just can’t shake. Relaxation becomes the number one priority here, making Big Kush an ideal strain for night time.
Big Kush works just as well for medical ailments as she does for your recreational desires, with both mental and physical ailments being greatly affected by her wiles. Stress and depression are naturally relieved by the boost in spirits you’ll enjoy, and surprisingly enough, nausea is a top condition that this bud tends to help with. Bodily pain is also soothed due to her strong THC levels, and if you smoke enough of it, insomnia can also be banished.
Individuals who want to plant their own cannabis garden at home would be wise to invest in some Big Kush seeds, as this strain is easy to cultivate and produces nicely sized yields. She does well inside or outdoors, but you have to think things through before you plant – fully mature structures can get up to 9 feet tall in some cases. Flowering within about 8 weeks, Big Kush requires little trimming and is an easy to maintain strain.
If you can handle your weed, Big Kush is probably one of the most ideal strains you can enjoy for a night at home. Her flavors may not be super enticing, but if you can get past that and start to lean into your high, the balance of energy and relaxation will surely be welcome. Keep some of this strain handy for those times when you need a bit of medical relief or simply when you want to impart a bit of spunk into your night before winding down into a deep sleep.
