Despite access to a wide array of information, the cannabis industry still brings mystery to the table – and the Conscious Kush strain is a good reminder of that fact. While it is a popular strain, there is little information about it. However, users don’t seem to care as most are more focused on the strain’s intense high and a robust, earthy flavor profile.
What Is the Conscious Kush Strain?
From the little information we can find, it seems as if a breeder called Conscious Genetics created this slightly sativa dominant hybrid. It is a relatively new company, having only come on the scene in the last five years.
We do know that there are two versions of Conscious Kush. Version 1 is a cross of Blue Cookies, Tresstardawg, Abusive OG, ODV3, and Sunset Sherbet, while Version 2 is a cross of Version 1, Huckleberry Soda, and Strawberry Mamba. We’re focusing on Version 1 in this review.
If its lineage is anything to go by, Conscious Kush should provide an evenly balanced high. This could include an initial cerebral high that changes your perception of your surroundings. Eventually, the high makes its way down the body, where it provides a level of stimulation.
In general, the body high isn’t enough to provoke sedation. As a result, you could use Conscious Kush during the day. It ensures you remain uplifted but clear-headed. You might find it enjoyable while going on a hike or walk, and in smaller amounts, it may even provide a burst of energy you can use to exercise.
Once cured, Conscious Kush could provide a dank and fruity smell. Once you break the nugs or combust them, you might also get hints of diesel and skunkiness.
Conscious Kush doesn’t provide a memorable flavor, but you will benefit from a smooth smoke. You will likely get hints of diesel and skunkiness to go along with the strain’s fruity taste.
As Conscious Kush is a potent strain, it has a high resin content. Therefore, you may need a grinder to break up the buds properly. Conscious Genetics is known for creating a range of purple strains, and the purple is often evident in this particular strain as well – along with vibrant orange and yellow pistils. When harvest time arrives, you can see a glorious coating of frosty trichomes.
Conscious Kush Strain Grow Info
Although we could find some information on certain Conscious Genetics strains, details on Conscious Kush are at a premium. Prospective growers will also find it extremely hard to locate any seeds or clones.
If you somehow get your hands on Conscious Kush, you can try exposing it to lower temperatures in an attempt to increase the strain’s unique purple coloring. However, please don’t overdo it, or you’ll send the plants into shock.
Also, going by its lineage, Conscious Kush probably grows well both indoors and outdoors, as long as you trim the plants early on in the vegetative stage. Its flowering time is likely 8-10 weeks, and it should provide an average yield.
THC Content – Highest Test
Conscious Genetics creates strains with a THC content as high as 30%! While Conscious Kush isn’t quite as potent, it packs a punch with approximately 20%.
CBD Content – Highest Test
We have heard claims that this strain’s CBD content is as high as 3%. However, it is likely closer to 1%.
Medical Benefits of the Conscious Kush Strain
The genetic lineage of Conscious Kush means it likely shares some of its parent strains’ benefits. For instance, it may help improve focus like Blue Cookies. Therefore, you might find it useful if you have ADD/ADHD.
Also given the strain’s apparent propensity to boost mood, it is worth considering Conscious Kush for anxiety, stress, and depression. Try a little to see if it helps you forget your troubles and puts a smile on your face.
Possible Side Effects of the Conscious Kush Strain
Given this strain’s potency, it is wise to treat it with respect. Overconsumption could result in adverse effects such as heightened anxiety, paranoid thoughts, and dizziness. There is also a danger of “greening out.” More common side effects include dry eyes and a dry mouth.
Final Thoughts on the Conscious Kush Strain
Conscious Kush remains something of a mystery strain. We know it comes from a breeder called Conscious Genetics, and we know that it may help with anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. It seems to provide a balanced high that enables you to relax, but also keeps you focused.
