Cherry Kush Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Green Dream Health Services

Grade: A-

Type: Indica-dominant hybrid, Purple Afghani x OG Kush

Price: $50/8th

Appearance: (8.25/10)  This sample had an interesting red/purple cast to it overall, looking different than most samples from arm’s length in the bag/jar and even more unique up close.  The Purple Afghani influence can definitely be seen in the coloration, while the structure seemed much like many OG Kush varieties.  Trichome coverage was above-average for sure, with quite a few golden and amber-capped trichome heads that were well-preserved.  The slightly liberal manicure and the presence of a few tiny seeds are the 0nly knocks on this one — it was clearly grown with care and had wonderful structure.

Aroma: (7.75/10)  While not overtly pungent, the smell of this sample certainly did remind us a bit of cherries — actual cherries, not the uber-sweet candy conception of cherry.  It had twinges of OG Kush acridness (some citrus, musk, and spice), but was overall pretty smooth-smelling and pleasant.

Taste: (6/10)  There was a faint fruity sweetness mixed in with some mentholated qualities and a bit of spice — overall though, it just had a hashy, smoky quality that wasn’t particularly distinct or appealing.  The flavor went downhill relatively quickly as well, only really showing itself on the first 2 hits.  Despite that, the smoke was not harsh, but it did make us cough a bit thanks to the level of expansion — the final ash was a very light gray, showing a clean flush.

Effects: This was a fairly typical hybrid experience overall, with a Sativa beginning and an even-handed Indica relaxation throughout.  To start, it had our eyes feeling flush and full of pressure, some “headband”-like feelings, and a buzzing presence all over the body.  Mentally, there were moments of stupor early on where thoughts were difficult to pull out of their hiding spots, but that seemed to clear up within the first hour, when the effects began their decline.  This was a bit of a cerebral “thinker” strain, more prone to solitary thought or one-on-one social interaction rather than something like a party.  It’s not one for focus-heavy work due to its tendency for distraction, but it was relatively functional and clear-headed overall like most OG Kush hybrids.  The comedown was a little bit on the tired side, as it seemed to turn into more of a base relaxation experience about 1.5 hours in.

Duration: Long, 2.5 – 3 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Mental and physical relaxation (while retaining mental clarity), ocular attention, digestive issues, mood regulation, and some appetite stimulation.

Overall: We had some internal disagreements on this strain — one reviewer really loved it and how cerebral it was, while another felt it was sort of a “blah” standard hybrid (“up then down”) experience… the in-between resulted in the A- it received.  The bag appeal was very nice visually, but left a little lacking in the taste area especially; still, it was unique-looking and nothing too negative could be said about the taste and smell.  We appreciated that it retained a level of clarity throughout, only getting a little stupor-inducing right to start — this is a solid choice for general relaxation, relief from minor pain/muscle tension, and mood regulation.  The duration was probably its best feature, as it stayed at medicinal levels for nearly 2 hours and overall lasted longer than most… the THC numbers say “experienced patients only”, but it was a really smooth experience that anyone could enjoy.

    I really enjoyed this strain. The cerebral part of it when the high began was nice because it allowed me to fix my friends laptop. When I was done with that I started to feel the indica part of this wonderful bud, and it helped me get some quality sleep.
