About Coffee Kush
Coffee Kush is an Indica-dominant strain (70/30) from an unknown breeder, made from parents whose delicious flavors carry over to their kid. These parent strains, White Hash Plant and Pre-98 Bubba Kush, are cerebral heavy hitters and so is the combination. You may be taken off-guard by the heady-heavy high of this dessert-flavored strain, though novice users may be happy to learn that Coffee Kush’s THC content rarely gets up to 17%. Tingly, giggly, relaxing, and delicious, the strain pairs a deep flavor with a calming good time. Just be aware that panic attacks are a reported side effect along with dry mouth and eyes. Make sure you give yourself time to react to the strain before overdoing it.
The strain takes its time flowering, sometimes taking up to 75 days plus another week before it’s ready for harvest, which is pretty long. Outside, the plant grows to a height of 60-80 inches and you can just let it go wild, hoping it yields its full potential of around 550g per plant. Indoors, however, the plant gets cramped down and rarely grows over 30 inches tall. This means that Coffee Kush can be grown effectively in either environment, but you’ll need to adjust your expectations about how much the plants will yield depending on your situation.
Its terpene profile is rich and unique, favoring the rarer terpenes Carene and Eucalyptol, with hints of Bisabolol, which give the strain its diverse and interesting palette. Eucalyptol is responsible for the flavors of coffee and the spicy, herbal finish while Carene imparts a sweeter, nuttier flavor. You’ll be tasting chestnuts, flowers, and coffee, but as the strain’s taste evolves it becomes earthier and develops chem flavors like menthol. A touch of Limonene gives the strain a faint whiff of citrus that can come out as a taste of grapefruit on the exhale.
Coffee Kush has a wide range of effects. It begins as a feeling of tingly, head-heavy euphoria that makes its users feel relaxed and focused. A boost of happy energy uplifts you and makes you giggly as you smoke, which makes the strain great for social gatherings in the afternoon, and pretty much any hang-out that isn’t too late in the day. Users report feeling less stressed, tense, and depressed on the strain, while some tout its benefits to those who suffer from arthritis and hypertension. Note that panic attacks and fatigue are sometimes reported as side effects due to the strain’s strength. However, Coffee Kush’s dynamic palette and complex effects have a lot to offer, especially to new Kush users that want to see what the “buzz” is about.
