Diamond Kush (Indica Hybrid)
Diamond Kush is an indica with a luxurious high. Popular on the West Coast, this strain’s exact genetic makeup is unknown. Some sources describe it as a descendant of OG Kush and an unknown second parent. The woodsy scent of pine and cedar wafts up from the cured buds, a dank incense-like aroma with a citrus undertone not often seen in kush varieties. Grinding it up releases a spicy, hashy smell. A refreshing taste of citrus comes through on the exhale, but smokers should keep in mind that this can be a particularly pungent smoke; those looking to maintain discretion should take any necessary precautions.
The high is a a creeper, often taking several minutes after users have savoured its taste before its effects can be detected. A feeling of heaviness falls on the brow and eyelids; some may even feel dizzy or lightheaded. Relaxation spreads quickly, and smokers may head for refuge on the closest comfortable couch. Users are likely to feel elevated and euphoric, though perhaps not especially thoughtful. Diamond Kush is an excellent way to unwind and allow the stresses and annoyances of the day to melt away. As time passes, smokers are increasingly likely to become couch locked and dopey. At higher doses, smokers should expect to be incapacitated and shouldn’t plan on productivity. Because of its sleepy vibes, Diamond Kush is better suited to nighttime than to daytime use. Its stoney effects are said to be long-lasting.
This strain’s sedative properties can have several uses for medical cannabis patients as well. Effective at soothing pain, whether from injury or chronic conditions. Diamond Kush may also have anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful for relieving everyday annoyances like headaches or nausea. This bud’s mood-enhancing properties can even temporarily improve the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. Because it does not often bring about disorienting stimulation, Diamond Kush is a good choice for those who are prone to anxiety.
