Candy Kush Hemp Flower

A close up of Candy Kush hemp flower buds grown by Sunset Lake CBD

Candy Kush is a brand new cultivar that we’ve added to our smokable hemp lineup this year. At 15.9% total CBD, this down-the-middle hybrid flower is great for putting your feet up at the end of a long day.

Candy Kush is one of two hybrid hemp flower strains that we grew this year— the other being the beloved Special Sauce. If you’re looking for a cultivar that will help you relax on your off time and help you get to bed, check out Candy Kush.

It should also be no surprise that this tasty Kush is laden with terpenes. At 2.4% of total weight, Candy Kush’s terpene profile is well-rounded and looks analogous to a lot of our Sour Strains.

Candy Kush Genetics

ST (Sour Tsunami) x GG#4 | Oregon CBD Seeds

Like many high-yielding hemp flower strains, Candy Kush hemp flower can trace its lineage back to some stable and proven cannabis strains. Over time, geneticists bred the THC out of the parent cultivars and encouraged CBD production. This technique created, high-CBD buds that look, smell, and smoke like traditional cannabis.

What Strain Is Candy Kush?

Candy Kush is a brand new release from the geneticists over at Oregon CBD Seeds. Sunset Lake CBD was lucky to get their order in for this new release as the order size was extremely limited.

Candy Kush was bred to withstand harsher weather and produce a ton of tasty terpenes— and it did just that in our tough Northern Vermont fields.

Is Candy Kush an Indica or Sativa?

Candy Kush is a well-balanced hybrid, making neither an Indica- nor a Sativa-dominant hemp flower. As a result, Candy Kush is a great any-time-use flower though many users say that this cultivar is great for nesting and settling down with a movie.

Does Candy Kush Get You High?

Smoking Sunset Lake CBD’s Candy Kush hemp flower will not make you feel high or intoxicated.

To be considered hemp flower and not marijuana, smokable hemp must contain less than 0.3% d9-THC by dry weight. Instead of feeling high, as you would with traditional marijuana, you might feel much more relaxed or chilled when you smoke Candy Kush.

What Does Candy Kush Smell Like?

Candy Kush has an incredible jar aroma. Our slow-cured buds smell like lemon candies lightly doused with diesel fuel. Expect a slightly sweet exhale when you smoke or vape this cultivar.

Sunset Lake CBD’s Cherry Abacus Reviews

“Candy is a great name for this product because it tastes like some kind of nerds or sweet tarts or cotton candy. Everyone loves the smell, the buds are soft and sticky. As far as effect, it’s a mild chill vibe I’d say, I don’t have to sit down like I do with Cherry Abacus but not quite as heady as Lifter. It’s a nice compromise and probably a good introduction to CBD for your friends that haven’t tried it before.”

“This is it folks. My favorite sunsetlake say bay day strain!! I’ve been smoking it daily for a few years now since I heard of sunset lake on The Majority Report. I mostly smoke lifter during the day, and cherry abacus at night. Perfect, chef’s kiss! However, I’m a big Indica fan and my favorite strains are kush, Hindu kush, bubba kush, OG kush, and Afghani kush. I also mix and match during the day and at night to add some CBD to my smoke sessions. Well….candy kush mixes so well and has a very smooth and earthy taste like its cousins. It chills your vibe, but doesn’t knock you out. The perfect happy medium for your evening sesh. This may be the best yet!!!

Smells nice, smokes nice and it taste nice. Actually replace nice with amazing and you are on to something. These guys are top notch.

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.

Growing Information

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.
