Cotton Candy Kush or Cotton Candy is a cannabis strain cross of two strains, Lavender, an Afghan Hawaiian and Skunk descendant, and Power Plant, from South Africa. As this is indica dominant, it has a sedative effect when smoked or vaped. The buds have pink hair, with shades of dark and light purple with a THC content ranging between 16% – 20%.
Delicious Seeds, a Spanish cannabis seed bank, created this strain. After curing these buds, they give off a fruity and sweet aroma. You will also observe citrus and floral notes, giving it a pungent scent. Upon smoking or vaping this strain, you will feel happy, uplifted, relaxed, and euphoric. Due to the interesting genetic makeup of this cannabis strain, it also boosts your creativity. You get the unforgettable cotton candy flavor when you exhale after smoking or vaping these buds. The relaxing high from this strain can help you deal with depression, anxiety, and stress.
As it is indica-dominant, the sedative effects can help you fall asleep, if you suffer from insomnia. Growers prefer Cotton Candy Kush because of its high bud to leaf ratio. The best time to smoke this strain would be during late afternoon or before you go to sleep. Its buds are large and have tapered and long shapes. The trichomes on this strain give it a sticky texture, making it similar to the sugar confection, Cotton Candy.
