Candy Kush Terpene Profile
Candy Kush is a myrcene-dominant cultivar, accounting for nearly a quarter of its respectable 2.4% total terpene weight. The second and third most common terpenes are beta-caryophyllene and terpinolene, respectively.
When myrcene is taken with CBD, it’s thought to contribute to the “couch lock” effect, leading many to believe that myrcene may have some sedative effects. Myrcene is also commonly found in mangos and thyme. It may be the amount of myrcene in Candy Kush that makes it such a relaxing cultivar.
Beta-caryophyllene is an interesting terpene as it’s the only terpene to also interact with your endocannabinoid system and provide anti-inflammatory effects. This terpene helps add a bit of spice to Candy Kush’s profile as it’s also found in black pepper and cinnamon.
Terpinolene is named after turpentine and is quite complex to the nose; many find terpinolene to have piney, floral, herbaceous, and citrus notes. Above all, terpinolene is usually described as having a distinctly “fresh” aroma.
D-Limonene deserves a special spotlight in this section, too. As a strain that smells so much like lemon candy, we expect to see a certain amount of limonene present. While it’s part of Candy Kush’s overall profile, it only accounts for about 3% of the terpene profile. Limonene smells of citrus and can be found in many rinds and cosmetic products.
We germinated our Candy Kush hemp flower in our greenhouses up in Vermont’s Champlain Islands. Once they were big enough to transplant, we moved the seedlings to the center of our field, next to the Super Sour Space Candy— imagine how great those two smelled together.
We did not use any pesticides at any point during germination, growing, flowering or harvesting. Instead, with guidance from the University of Vermont extension school, we used an integrated pest management system and employed the use of Trichogramma parasitic wasps, assassin bugs, and ladybugs to control unwanted pests. We only used organic fertilizer that we secured from our main farm in Alburgh Vermont.
