Jedi Kush Strain Review
The thought of Star Wars and the Galactic Empire comes to mind whenever one encounters this strain. Named Jedi Kush, it suggests that people who use it will experience the force. Exactly what kind, that is what we will find out in the next sections of this article. Suffice to say; it is one that takes users on a surprisingly cerebral trip to the stars and the far corners of the universe.
The source of the force of Jedi Kush is its illustrious parent strains. The breeder, Cali Connection, used San Fernando Valley (SFV) OG Kush and Death Star.
SFV OG Kush is an offspring of the legendary phenotype of OG Kush called the SFV OG and an Afghani Indica. The other parent, Death Star, is an offspring of Sensi Star and Diesel. By looking at its lineage, one can say it looks like a list of the who’s who in the world of cannabis. Not surprisingly, Jedi Kush inherited traits allowing it to win multiple Cannabis Cup awards in different categories.

Odor and Flavors
The aroma of Jedi Kush is timid at first. But once users break the buds, it releases a pungent skunky odor with a blend of fuel and with hints of pine that quickly fills up the room. Because it catches the attention of not just the users but also the people nearby, there may be some privacy concerns.
Jedi Kush also tastes the same as it smells. Upon inhaling, savor the lemony flavor with notes of skunk and gasoline. Not surprisingly, it is reminiscent of the household cleaner Pinesol. During exhalation, a smooth earthy pine flavor tingles the palate.
Jedis are masters of the mind game. As such, even if this strain is predominantly an Indica hybrid, most people new to it are taken aback by the cerebral effects that it induces.
It does take a while before the users feel the heavy-hitting effects of the strain. For some people, it may even take up to 10 minutes. In general, most would experience an uplifting sensation. As the effects intensify, the same feeling turns into a buzzing mental high.
Once the creeper unleashes its force on the body, a numbing buzz induces not only a soothing or calming feeling, but it sends users to a state of complete relaxation. Soon enough, most people also end up feeling dreamy or spacey.
One notable thing about the profound Indica effects of Jedi Kush is that it does not cause users to feel lethargic. Even so, it will not be long when drowsiness sets in.
Apparently, even in a dreamy state, some of the unfavorable effects of Jedi Kush cannot be ignored. Depending on how tolerant users are, or how much they used, some or more of these reactions may occur. Dry mouth and eyes are both a given as these are natural with using cannabis.
As the strain bombards the mind and the body with its full force, some people may feel dizzy or even have a mild headache. In some instance, a few people have also reported feeling a bit paranoid. Still, these reactions are not much of a concern. In fact, most users tend to bask in its relaxing effects while ignoring these side effects.
Medical Use and Benefits
The Jedis are a lot of things. Besides serving in different capacities based on their background, one of their roles is also to protect. While timid, they are also experts at using the force to fight for those who can’t defend themselves. And so, that is what the strain does to help people fight off the discomforts.
The intense physical effects it has is potent enough to make it an efficient painkiller. It provides relief from muscle spasms and other discomforts caused by chronic illnesses. Furthermore, it helps alleviate the symptoms of joint pains and arthritis.
The uplifting sensation that users feel can induce to feel elated. Combined with the relaxation induced by the Indica, it is more than enough to combat stress. As a result, it becomes a useful aid for people who want to overcome PSTD, depression, and anxiety. Not only does Jedi Kush help them manage their emotion, but it also shifts the attention of people away from negative thoughts.
Growing Jedi Kush
Growers can cultivate Jedi Kush indoor or outdoor. Either way, the plant will need a lot of tender loving care. Fortunately, it is a forgiving plant as well as resistant to mold and mildew. As such, most beginners should be able to nurture it all the way until harvest.
Growing Jedi Kush indoor, it thrives well with hydroponics. It is also highly adaptable to both the Sea of Green or the Screen of Green training methods. Even if it is naturally resistant to mold and mildew, it is only up to a certain degree. Hence, it is best to monitor and maintain proper humidity.
