If you are looking for a strain that has a perfect balance of indica and sativa properties together with the ideal THC to CBD ratio, Caramel Candy Kush is a perfect choice. This is definitely one of the strains that every user should try, whether it is for a medicinal purpose or for a recreational one.
The balance comes from the strain's origin: indica pre-1998 Bubba Kush clone and sativa-dominant hybrid Ms. Universe #10. The indica parent has endowed its child with the potency that can please even the pickiest user, as the THC level is higher than average, about 19-22%. At the same time, the sativa parent helps suppress the negative side-effects of the high THC level and enriches the strain with medicinal benefits.
The high THC level makes Caramel Candy Kush one of the best indica hybrid strains that you can ever try, so if you still for some reason have not paid attention to this kind of weed, you should definitely give it a try.
The great THC-CBD balance is obvious even from the first look at the buds of Caramel Candy Kush: they are compact, dense, and tight, like in the best indica strains, and its leaves are covered with shiny little crystals, as you would expect from a sativa strain. Numerous resinous crystals that look more like snow make this strain a great material for producing concentrates and hash. But even when consumed as a joint, the strain produces outstanding potency and benefits comparing to most of other indica hybrids.
The colors of the buds remind you of a pine forest covered with the first snow. The overall dark green shade is complemented by purple leaves and orange hairs, all of it wrapped in a dense crystal layer.
As you may guess from the strain's name, the aroma and taste of Caramel Candy Kush is sweet and fruity (usually with cherry and grape hints). Some plants also have a nice aroma bouquet of creamy coffee and spice notes. The taste will not disappoint you either; it has a bit of berry-like notes alongside the major candy flavor.
The smoke, though, can be slightly harsh, so if you are sensitive to it, it may be better to vape this weed rather than smoke it in a joint.
As a potent indica hybrid, Caramel Candy Kush is mostly used for treating pain (instant and chronic). It is also good for relieving symptoms of fibromyalgia, arthritis, insomnia, and many other illnesses.
The strain's instant calming effect makes Caramel Candy Kush a wonderful remedy for stress, anxiety, or depression. Depending on the way of consuming, the effect can last from a couple of hours to a whole day. If you choose a large dose, you had better use it in the evening, since the high effect is very powerful and potent and can start working almost instantaneously after the first puff.
If you are up to growing this strain by yourself, you may choose any option that suits you best: Caramel Candy Kush grows well both outside and inside. It is not really tall, slightly bushy. The flowering period starts in 8-9 weeks, and if you provide the plants with the necessary fertilizer, you can even expect the flowers to appear at week seven. As we have mentioned before, you may use this strain for smoking, as well as for making hash, oil, or concentrates.
